Card of the Day – 1st December 2020
“Crane ( Corr ) , Keywords – Secret Knowledge, Patience, Longevity”
Core brings the qualities of patience, perseverance, focus and concentration, standing for hours peering into the water until the time comes to dart at its prey. It guides others into the underworld, to help them with their transition at the time of dying, or with their journeying in the inner realms.
Besides an ability to work in the underworld, the crane symbolises arcane science, or secret knowledge, which, in the druid tradition, is represented by the Ogham script – The tree language of Druidry. In its widest sense, learning this language involves learning to read the “Book of Nature “.
