Letting Go With Demeter

Today’s Oracle Card comes from the deck Ancient Feminine Wisdom of Goddesses and Heroines by Kay Steventon and Brian Clark, falls in line with the theme of Autumn, and that is letting go. Autumn has always been one of my favorite seasons, I love the wisdom found within letting go of our leaves and our difficulties. Surrendering to the ebb and flow of life. (You should check out my Autumn e-book)

Demeter stands amidst her fields of grain watching over the harvest, watching the earth vibrantly bloom, the crops flourish, she allows the earth to come alive. She is the Earth Mother, ruling over the cycles of death and rebirth, everything is born, everything grows, and everything dies.

Demeter is most known for the myth involving her daughter Persephone as she is stolen away to the Underworld by the God Hades. It is a story of   closeness, separation, grief, and reunion and it echoes the timeless theme of attachment and loss.

When this card comes up it is a sign that it is time to let go of an attachment. 

It is time for a more mature phase in your life or relationship. It is time to let go and release the things that are holding you back. It is only when you release this stuff, that you make more space for things to grow, for yourself to blossom, for your life to flourish. When you mourn those things you complete the process, life can go on and be renewed.

What is it that you need to let go of so that you can make more space for things to grow?
