She is the steady engine for a better and kinder world. As a futurist determinedly working towards a vision that she holds clearly, she's ready with ideas and goals and has done her research. She communicates and connects, she is sensitive to the shivering of the universe's web and is likely to know what stirs at the other end. She's observant and intuitive and quietly invites trust with her insight and clarity. Her bank of knowledge is always growing and tomorrow indicated, she'll daily have a myriad of new things to share - but you may need to ask.
Unfurl her hand to see in. Her love is a seed, embedded there in the palm. Should you water it, a sprout will unfurl lush spring green leaves and a rose laden gown will grow up around her fiercely protective heart. She sees clearly, is adept at the bearing of sad rapture. Still she would make a meal for the needful from her magic seed even if it meant the falling away of her own leaves and glorious flowers.
She is the quiet power at the intersect of air and earth. She leads without speaking, speaks without excess and is often surprised to learn that she is the guidepost of light at the edge of what is known. She is that lighthouse because she knows a lot about all manner of things including the way back. And she will stand there as sentry for as long as she knows she is needed.
Perhaps this is where she goes when she needs to find quiet in her busy life and work that calls for deep service and active connections. Here the wind can blow all the way around her and remind her of what she counts on. Here joy is in pure colour, natural simple forms and she can be still or spread her arms wide and spin for a carefree dizzying moment.
She is water and air, connecting words and theories to each other with ethereal insight. Bubbling up with laughter and excitement she's an alchemist of thought and ideas. Once affected, you will want to keep following the trail issuing to your conscious surface and you will feel safe wandering into new vistas, old mythology and the deep green woods with her.
She holds the stories, is the weaver of the tapestry; honouring each thread from then, now and ahead. She bears this legacy forward, carrying it reverently; warmly. She encourages the voices around her to knit together, to witness the collective wealth of the history they share and sing about each strand with laughter and love.
Part water, a lot fire and a dreamer who reliably plans. Healer and nurturer, she quietly floats. She is strength and grace, she's a lamp light, she'll help guide you home.
