Into the Wildwood

Somebody tell Chiron to get out of the way…….

The Archer holds the broad longbow poised in the act of release. The bow is of an ancient design, the fletchings are of goose feather, taken from the right wing, and the arrowhead is flint. The Archer’s gaze is focused and steady as she looks beyond the arrow into the sky, holding the tension between the bow and the sinew bowstring with controlled and relaxed intent. She wears a simple amulet and appears serene and confident yet full of purpose. By her side stand two great hunting dogs, messengers of the power she holds within herself. Just as spells and curses were loosed through the air by hunters and shamans, so we must ourselves tune in to this ancient process and become archers with quivers full of ideas and desires, capable of forming and focusing our aim in the steady drawing of our will and then loosing our creative and intellectual drives in a controlled and effective way.

The Wildwood Tarot is a complete reconception and redesign of the popular Greenwood Tarot.  It’s still in progress, but scheduled for mid-2011.  Read more at Aecletic Tarot

A duck-shooting protester has been shot in the face with pellets on the first day of Victoria’s controversial hunting season.

Fourteen years old! Too young to have sex, drink or drive…..and can’t aim straight.  Can’t be a country kid that’s for sure.   Ya can kinda imagine how Chiron might have got wounded and how some ancient PR person spun the myth..
