Woad is symbolic of freedom, bardistry, and warriorhood. I took this to mean that the sacrifices were accepted.
The Air Dragon is the symbol of inspiration, insight, and vitality. This was a bit hard to interpret for me, because it felt more like something that was being offered, not asking an action from the group. I think that the Kindreds were asking for clear headedness as well as insight.
Ah, the bear, he has a deep connection to winter in my mind (might come from all the times as a school child that we talked about hibernation as soon as the air got nippy). He represents primal power, sovereignty, and intuition married with instinct. This is a very powerful card to receive as an offering from the Kindreds, and is also a card I have very rarely drawn in my private practice. I took this to mean the ability to not only survive, but to thrive during this cold time of the year, and that the instincts and intuition to do this would be provided.
I am extremely glad to have the light returning, and that soon we will come to my all time favorite holiday of Imbolc. I am still trying to figure out how best to celebrate this one as a grove though. I hope that the returning of the light will bless us all.
