Card 1

18 The Corn Mother

Fertility


The Corn Mother is Mother Earth, the mother of all plants. It is said she produced corn by rubbing her body, a practice that some found somewhat disgusting. In some myths, she was put to death and some she escapes to the heavens. In both, before her death, she provides instructions and seeds to ensure the continued production of corn. She is of course associated with corn (maize), which provides for the strength and continuity of humans. The Corn Mother is often shown with a sleeping child in her arms or a labyrinth (her partner, the Sun-Sky God, depicted by a cross)


Message:

Patience, gentleness, forgiveness, and sacrifice are sometimes necessary to bring something from seed to life.


Time:

The beginning phase of a situation or season.







Card 2

27 The Medicine Wheel

Equilibrium


The Medicine Wheel is a deceptively simple symbol, representing everything humans need to know about the balance and connection with both Earth and Spirit. It is divided into four quarters, representing the directions and the seasons, along with many other associations. Also included are the three directions representing Father Sky, Mother Earth, and the Sacred Tree. In the image, we also see the medicine bag which contains amulets chosen to cure or re-balance the energy of someone who is unwell. Objects may include stones, roots, berries, coins, beads, and other small items.


Message:

With honest self-assessment, you can determine the medicine you need in order to achieve well-being.


Time:

Sunday







Card 3

19 The Twin Gods

Uncertainty


Twin Gods are prevalent throughout Native American mythology. Sometimes they are represented as "good" and "evil", fighting each other for supremacy and control. Some myths say they co-created humans, which is why people have both good and bad qualities. In some traditions, they are not good and evil but opposites like day and night, life and death, summer and winters. In these cases, they are rivals rather than enemies. Sometimes they are even partners working together on a task or a quest. In this card, the backgrounds design is used for ritual divination incorporating the directions and the paths of planets through the heavens.


Message:

If a decision seems impossible, wait and watch. The best solution will reveal itself at the last moment.


Time:

The middle phase of a situation or season.







Card 4

1 The Heavens

Destiny


The Heavens unfold across the sky like a sacred book, revealing universal truths and specific destinies. In the book of the Heavens, we find access to the mind, wisdom, and the laws of the creator. From this infinite throne, the earth is nourished with rain and transgressors may be struck by lightning. The Stars spell our stories and guide precise rituals. The Moon measures time and illustrates the journey of life, from birth to death, and all the changes in between. The Sun illuminates the world, rendering the details of the heavens invisible but helping us to see the Earth and all around us, which is also a sacred book.


Message:

Step back, look at the big picture, and let time unfold without meddling.


Time:

Dawn or dusk, a day, a month, a year.






Card 5

28 The Feather

Communication


Feathers are an important part of Native American rituals. Feathers are tied to poles, which are placed in fields or mountain peaks and create rustling noise, the voice of the gods. They represent prayer, both the active speaking aspects as well as the passive listening aspect. Feathers are also signs of respect and honor and are considered gifts from Spirit. Receiving one, whether from your people as a sign of achievement or as a gift found along your path brings with it responsibility. Feathers are to be treated as any other sacred symbol.


Message:

Every stone, plant, animal, or situation you meet has a message for you. Listen.


Time:

Within a month.






Card 6

6 Beaver

Construction


Beaver is smart, hands-on, practical, makes it happen smart. He is an engineer and builder, both rational and creative. In his work, we see the perfect application of inspiration and ideas. Beaver is not a plodder, though. He takes only the time necessary to figure out a solution and then proceeds to do what needs doing with efficiency and often with style. Being able to work with materials this well shows a deeper connection than simply physical. To create, to synthesize from the function with environmental awareness and with beauty requires a relationship with the elemental spirits of one's building materials. The canoe is another symbol of efficient engineering.


Message:

Look deeper to find the understanding required for the most elegant solutions.


Time:

May, the month of growth.
