The Child of Darkness, His Angels, and His Mother Wisdom created the Earth and All That is Upon and Immediately Around it. This site is about an In-Depth Study of That and Its Relevance to All of Us

Inner Bible Alchemy

Ten of Earth

The Ten of Earth energies prompt: Ancient magic, modern medicine. Find strength deep within. The wisdom of the elders takes root in the bones of youth.

Ten of Earth: Pentacles

The Ten of Earth energies manifest in Horsetail.

Horsetail

You are safe and secure. You are a well-established member of your community; know your work supports and sustains others. Horsetail both gathers nutrients and removes toxins from the area.

Understand your connection to the greater purpose of life. Pause and connect often with all you have been given. Horsetail is a relative of a 400-million-year-old plant.

You come from ancestral giants.

This has all taken place before. Sometimes in order to be effective you learn to grow small and multiply. Nourish an underground network.

Mindfully gather from resources that have carried generations. Horsetail is favored among biodynamic gardeners as natural fertilizer; the future can build on the strength of the past.

Crafting With the Ten of Earth

The Tens feature herbs that are used as composting plants and cover crops. Grown for their ability to nourish and restore soil, they are the healers of the earth. These plants are deeply rooting, accumulating nutrients in the dirt as they grow. The parts above ground are cut and strewn over garden beds or made into compost teas. As the stems and leaves break down, the vitamins and minerals they contain are absorbed again into the earth, creating a rich environment where other plants can thrive.

Coming after the three minidramas, the Tens are cards of transition. The herbs of the Tens offer the herbcrafter a chance to stop and refill her emotional and spiritual basket before she begins another turn on the wheel. The earth and her spirit have given what they can. It is time to allow the soil to restore itself and for the herbcrafter to replenish herself. After letting the earth rest, we circle back to the Aces – the weeds that are usually the first to grow. The Tens reflect on past accomplishments while anticipating future growth.

Craft

Mini Meditation

Meditation

Get into a relaxing position and close your eyes, make sure you are a comfortable temperature and not likely to be interrupted.

  • Take three deep breaths
  • Feel your tension melting away.

Imagine yourself doing one of the crafts mentioned above. Use your imagination. Make it as elaborate or as simple as you like. Have whomever you would like to be there come and share the time with you.

Imagine what it would look and feel like, as if it were really happening. Use your five senses and imagine all the sensory details as though you are really there.

Be creative and indulge in this moment.

Spend as long as you like in this visualization and feel the benefits of crafting with nature. Think about your meditation as often as you like as you go through your day. If possible, create it in reality.
