A sacred symbol of the feminine, the rose has been here much longer than us. In times ancient, garlands of roses were placed around statues of Mother Goddesses in worship of Her. We’re all Her children. She connects and unites us all. If we trace Her roots far enough, maybe we’ll find our way back to each other.
We’re living in a time of great division, learning, and unlearning. We’re together mending the thread of humanity. This is a card of returning to union by facing what’s been broken, separated, and severed. To realize that we’re all human and while harm has been done, what’s needed now is for us to acknowledge what’s happened and endeavor to find a way to return to each other. To realize that it’s possible for two people to have a different experience at the same time and that both can be true.
Card of the day from The Rose Oracle
Mother Rose longs for humanity to drop our defenses and reach out to each other with deep honesty and compassion. To face and untangle the sadness, anger, and hurt from our hearts with the help of Her grace. To dig our roots deep until we find common ground.
Which relationships are difficult for you now? Who has hurt you? How can you soften and express your truth without being defensive? How can you open yourself up to the possibility that two truths can exist at once?
Mother Rose. Please show us how to find our way back to you, the Earth, and each other. Please help me to acknowledge what’s difficult for me, and may my heart be filled with compassion for all.
