Spirit Message of the Day – Summon Courage to be a Spiritual Warrior

“When this card appears the matter relates to stability and foundation.CelticPaganPentagramPaganArtPurp-1 It is a card of strength and protection. The pentacle speaks of endurance and fortitude. In essence the pentacle is a card of manifestation with the material world. The pentacle is the channel through which its counterpart (the energy of earth) manifests its objective.”

“Traditionally the pentacle is a ritual tool that symbolizes the creative element of earth (cohesion and manifestation). It is customarily made of clay or stone, and bears a green finish that represents abundance. On the face of the platter appears an interlaced five-pointed star. This symbolizes the etheric element of spirit over the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water. Spirit (the fifth elementPentacle by Mickie Mueller) provides equilibrium, which results in cohesion/manifestation as it directs and joins together the elemental process of creation.”

“The card depicts the pentacle resting on a black cloth. Black is the presence of all colors absorbed into one place. Here the pentacle is cloaked and protected within the protective energy of generation/regeneration (for all things are born from out of the darkness). The chest symbolizes that the elemental nature of the tool is self-contained. Therefore it is not reliant upon the other elementsEpona_by_Selfish_Eden for its existence and function. The latch lock is shaped like a leaf, which symbolizes material Nature (that which grows from the earth).”

“The Crone of the cottage sets a small chest before you. She opens it and presents a pentacle to you from within the chest. The Crone instructs you that this is the shield of the spiritual warrior. Here is the symbol of your valor. You look upon the pentacle and see its strength and fortitude. here you realize that courage is what your foes fear most. If none can take away your valor, then none can penetrate your shield.”

Today’s message is from A Traveler’s Guide to The Well Worn Path by Raven Grimassi and Stephanie Taylor with art by Mickie Mueller.
