Ancestral Principles: honest, fair, basic instinct

Element: Air

Declaration: I speak with clarity.

Sacred Inheritance: When this blunt mama ancestor shows up, she wants you to be logical and fair. The Mother of Air rules the mind. You are honest, upfront and direct. This may be intimidating to some. But you are always fair.

Constructive criticism can be wielded like a weapon in the wrong hands. This matriarchal ancestor is a leader who brings old wise energy. She rules the roost sternly with an iron fist from the head and never the heart. Her compassion is often underestimated at first glance.

Ancestral Memory:  The Mother of Air appears as La Madama, an Afro-Caribbean spirit (family) gifted in intuition, oracles, and alchemy. She wields a broom as a magical tool. Oral history says that this ancestor was an enslaved woman who worked on the plantations of the Spanish-speaking Caribbean.

Lineage Healing: Are you suppressing your emotions?  We all have those hard-edged queens in our lineage. You don’t want to get on their bad side. Where can you use this wisdom in your life?

Shadow Aspect (Reversed): Haters gonna hate. The pessimistic energy is thick and undeniable. That chill in the air is somebody being cold-blooded, bitter and maybe even cruel. Words can be more hurtful than sticks and stones. Being mean and nasty is never called for.  You are being overwhelmed by your emotions.

Tarot Correspondence: Queen of Swords

Ritual: Give yourself permission to feel the emotions you have been avoiding: sadness, grief, anger and pure, giddy joy.
