The Wild Hunt: “Excitement, Frenzy, Journey”
“There is, for all of us, a moment when excitement and nerves fuse, when we prepare to journey and do something we have anticipated for a long time. In the faery realm, this sensation is created by the adventure known as The Wild Hunt. This is a gathering which takes place not only within the realm of faery, it is one where the faery king and queen lead faery hounds and faery horses on a hunt throughout the countryside, dipping into and out of the faery lands, surfacing in the human worlds form time to time, cleansing toxic energies, allowing natural forces to begin to flow through the cleared energy paths, awakening the wild world to brightest life once again, and leaving a trail of ecstasy and bliss after the frenzied storm of their ride.
The Wild Hunt is fierce, powerful, a little frightening, and thoroughly thrilling – and this faery queen is preparing herself for the joys and challenges of this great springtime event. So too you need to prepare yourself for some chaos – a wild time, when change tears through and upends all the order you have attached yourself to. You may need to pack, travel, find ways to move quickly, stop planning and organizing for a moment and just go on an immensely enjoyable ride of your life. The time coming for you is delirious in its excitement, and your fear this loss of control and order. But truly, it will refresh you, just as it sears the very edges of your nerves! Dress up, show up, and prepare to be amazed! Take a deep breath, find your voice, and begin to cry out at the top of your lungs. You are alive my friend, and will feel so much more alive than ever before when The Wild Hunt touches your life!”*

All this heavy change lately. The internal work, the releasing, the processing. The transformation.
It’s time for some fun. Some wild abandon thrown in there to stir up the energies. Some dancing under the stars, skinny dipping or singing at the top of your lungs. It’s time for surprises and unexpected gifts. It’s time for not so secret admirers and passionate embraces. It is time for a change.
There may be a curve ball coming in, but in a good way, if you decide to deem it so. Receptivity, as usual is key!
Dust off your Wild One and bring her, or him out to play! Put on your dancing shoes, your favourite outfit, paint your nails bright purple, change up your hair. Flirt a little, shamelessly (and harmlessly!) Get out of your boring old comfort zone and try something new.
Don’t stay home today, get out there!
And don’t forget to bring your big, beautiful smile.
