Omens from the Spring Equinox 2009 Service

Omen taken by Skip using the oghams.

The question asked was: What lessons would you teach us before Beltaine?

OakThe pre-ritual omen was Oak, teaching us about strength.

Blackthorn From the Ancestors, we drew Blackthorn. This tells us of strife or troubles.

Birch From the Spirits of Nature, we drew Birch. This tells us of beginnings.

Yew From the Shinning Ones, we drew Yew. This tells us of rebirth.

Holly After ritual omen was Holly. This tells us of justice.

We will have problems, but we should look at them as a new beginning. Working through the problems will lead us to a rebirth.
