The Ancestor is a card that invokes a powerful image of a primal person holding drum . The person represent the wisdom that is passed down each generation.

Often when this card comes up in a reading the whether for my self or for a client the question revolves around a belief in ourselves. The ancestor is there to help lead the way through the dark period of our lives all we have to do is listen.
The Pole Star

Nine times out of ten we may not be receptive to this little nudge. This is card that reminds us that our intuition is always there to help guide us through challenges if like the ancestor we take the time to listen to our intuition, think on it and act on it How we act on our intuition can have a bigger impact then we realize when it comes to facing challenges so keep an open mind and you will never know where the pole star will guide you to next.
