– Balance – Elemental Kingdom –

This card is asking you to open to the magic surrounding you by taking time to feel gratitude. Hawthorn is an ancient tree, sacred to the elemental kingdom. Also know as a fairy tree or tree of protection, it is an ally for healing. Acknowledge the blessings in your life. Begin to cultivate a relationship with the fairies (sometimes called the good folk, fae or sidhe). Invoke their blessings in ritual and energy work. Open up to your healing abilities. Respect these abilities and use them to help others.

Hawthorn calls for the balancing of your male and female energies. You need to integrate and harmonize these two qualities within yourself. Seek out the side that has been non-dominant and express it.
