The #30DaysMagicalRoots challenge started yesterday. True to form, I’m a bit late! Given that it was a major holiday in my tradition, I feel that’s entirely forgivable, right? Right. My family had a lovely, low-key Lughnasadh full of blueberry pancakes, board games, and a big dinner. I also made offerings and went on a run, which felt particularly appropriate on a day for competitions. Only, I was competing against myself.
So, day 1 of the 30 Days Magical Roots challenge is all about Divination. I mostly work with the Druid Animal Oracle. The symbolism resonates with me. My focus this month is definitely moving. The waiting is stressing me out. I asked for insight into that and drew the otter – a card of play. The Kindreds seemed to tell me to try and enjoy the process, and to not take everything so seriously. I’m trying… but it is very difficult.
Today is day 2 and the focus is grounding. My absolute favorite way to ground is through movement. I reach up to the sky and let the fiery sky energy return to where it is needed. Then I move into the yoga movement called child’s pose on the floor or ground. I let the watery, underworld energy seep back into the Earth Mother. It is especially potent outside when you can feel the heat from the sun and the moisture in the grass or soil.
