I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories.
Nematona – Sacred Spaces
Connect with Nematona through sacred space. You have all the answer you need inside yourself, sometimes they just get lost in the chaos. Now is the time to root down outside, experience the beauty and magick the world has to offer. Learn to create that sacred space inside, your house and your own self. Root, Wild Heart, Root.
The Inspiration of this Card
I received a Goddess of the year from my friend Kerin, and so far, it couldn’t be more accurate. Reading the 2019 Goddess Report she created for me, I knew that I was connected to Nematona, and I knew that during some times of this year, I might need a reminder. She’s all about creating sacred space in nature.
I used the Hawthorne Tree because when doing research, found that Nematona was connected through the Hawthorne trees, which is shown here on the card.
The Meaning of the Hawthorne Tree
The tree shows the light and the dark, yin/yang, masculine/feminine. It has beautiful flowers but contains thorns. It is highly sought, but never in the house because it has a horrifying smell. The tree is also a historic symbol of magick and farie and welcoming in happiness and spiritual grounding. I think this is why Nematona is associated with the tree.
