Heron, King of Vessels

The Heron was not a common bird to me as I was growing up. I could only experience his energy when I was close to the beach. The Blue Heron always amazed me, I could feel that he was a bird from a different time and space. As I grew up, I learned more and more of the gifts the Heron brings us. He dances between the worlds, gifting us with messages from our ancestors. He is known as the guardian of esoteric knowledge. His place on the wheel is Lughnasadh to Samhain. He serves as the gate keeper between this world and the Celtic Underworld. 

Vessels represent water, and includes our emotions, relationships, compassion, Romance, forgiveness, Faith, morning, and being of the heart. The Heron serves in essence as a mediator, as he is in between. So here, we are seeing diplomacy, as well as fairness. So at this time,  with the Virgo energy that we are having, and our position on the wheel of the Year, this is the perfect time for the Heron to make himself known. Here we are asked to show compassion, we are asked to temper our emotions and and not go off the deep end, so to speak. The Heron reminds me of the delicate balance in between this world and the Celtic underworld, the space between. As we approach the Autumn Equinox, the veils are thinning, and this Heron will make himself known in many different ways. The Heron will bring messages from your ancestors, from those loved ones who have passed, reminding you of the calmness in between the storm… Being the eye of the hurricane.

He is the bridge, the in between, seeing both sides. Its time to meet in the middle. Stop with the excess, being too much one way than the other. This really goes along with the astro-energy reading I did yesterday. I am being told that it’s time to have some compassion, patience, and to temper my emotions. With one foot in this world and the other in the Other, ground and centered, I will be able to see the bigger picture of what is going on…this is my key to the door of unlimited possibilities.
