The April Fool Tarot Challenge

Presented by @avillageofcards

Day Nine.
Pull a Blossom (something to strive for), a Stem (what to do to help you get there), and Roots (what you already have that will guide your journey).

Blossom - I strive to feel beautiful in my skin. 

Stem - I must seek beauty from within

Roots - Already the power lies within me, for I am beautiful.

A long and sleepless night
where seconds dragged on
feeling like days. I had 
much time to think 
as for I got no sleep.

Now here I am. 
I’ve said my piece and
feel so much better that 
its open and out there. 

I’m going to relax, 
take the day for myself. 
I sure as shit deserve it.

Airmid by Jessica Galbreth

In Irish mythology, the goddess Airmed (also given as Airmid) was one of the Tuatha Dé Danann. With her father Dian Cecht and brother Miach, she healed those injured in the Second Battle of Magh Tuiredh.

After her jealous father slew her brother, Miach, Airmed wept over her brother’s grave. Watered by her tears, all the healing herbs of the world sprung from the earth over Miach’s body, and Airmed collected and organized them all, spreading them on her cloak. Once again, their father lashed out, and scattered the herbs. For this reason, no living human knows all the secrets of herbalism. Only Airmed remembers.
