The Willow Tree transit is one of flexibility. The Willow Tree is one of the only trees that can bend to extremes without snapping……as the old saying goes “the strongest trees are those that bend with the wind.” At this time, we are being called to go with the flow of life, to surrender, to let go. We will be required to adapt to some uncomfortable situations in order to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. The Willow Tree is traditionally associated with sadness (Weeping Willow) which is why this will be a very emotional time. No matter how much we grieve, we must stand tall like the Willow and remember that we are alive and well. This will be a time of letting go of pain, healing deep hurts, and mending some forgotten wounds. The Willow Tree is a maternal tree which is why this is an excellent time to work with your inner child and be a mother to yourself. Avoid resentment and blaming. Nurturing is required for this very vulnerable time. In fact, in Sumer- Ishtar’s predecessor- Belli was known as the Willow Mother.
