I Need a Forest Fire

To burn it like cedar
I request another dream
I need a forest fire
(Another shade, another shadow . . . )

I’m saved by nature
But it always forgets what I need 

 

James Blake

 

“And here we have the third instance of a lion in this reading, fourth if we count the Sun. The wolf in the previous card is said to be what I meet with in the dark forest when I leave the path. This lion is a consuming forest fire that also represents the light in the individual’s body. It is a symbol of ancestral wisdom tempered through long eons of painful experience. It is light with an individual face and a will, power. It has direction, force, and a purpose.”
