31. The Witch

The strength of the universe lies in its connections-- in bone and blood, stardust and sweet musk, dew and yew. THE WITCH knows this to be true, and seeks to pull those connecting strings of reality and cast a cat's cradle between all of them.    If there was ever a picture of being fully self-possessed and confident in our every element, it is here in this image of the Lady of the Woven Wisdom Oracle.  When THE WITCH is present during your reading, she advises the querent to be resilient and poised against all odds or personal attacks.  Draw connections bringing people and the world closer together, but seek different sources and approaches to make this happen in the most harmonious way possible; doing so will expand your knowledge and power base, better drawing connections in the future.    This is a card of comfort: So many things had to happen to make us as we are, and we are all these things and more, she says.  And, so you are.

This card is part of the AUTUMN Suit in the Woven Wisdom Oracle, which notes lessons from the empowered voices in the twilight of life, who have lived experience. How can we learn from others strengths, or shortcomings?
