There are countless myths from all corners of the world that feature rainbows. In most cases, the rainbow symbolizes a bridge between heaven and earth and is a sign of good fortune. Perhaps the most widely known story comes from Irish folklore – it says that there’s a pot of gold waiting at the end of the rainbow, guarded by a leprechaun.
In Norse mythology, Bifrost, the rainbow bridge, connects Earth with Asgard, home of the Gods. Ancient Japanese folklore says that rainbows are bridges that the ancestors of humans took to descend to Earth. In the Old Testament book of Genesis, God sets a rainbow in the sky as a comforting symbol to humanity that he will never again destroy the Earth with floods.
In this oracle, the rainbow is here to comfort and reassure you that the future is full of hope. If you’ve been going through a challenging time lately, the rainbow is your sign that there are clearer skies ahead of you. Rest deeply in the knowledge that the rainbow brings with it a feeling of sweet relief and a simpler future.
