Maiden (water)–ah the freshness of life!
Breathe it in. Soak it up. Learn.
Cherry blossoms. First love. Puppy licks and skipping in the park. Tender. Supple. Purity.
Mother (ice)–love deepens, burrowing into your soul. The excruciating pain of childbirth cuts a channel to your heart. Caring for others builds endurance. Roots. Leaves. Fruit. Shade. Compassion. Strength.
Crone (vapor)– Erasing of all that was learned, returning all that was borrowed. Religionless. Societyless. Storyless. Empty. Only bones, only the pillars of truth. Freedom. Peace. Honesty.
