Welsh goddess of summer flowers, Cordelia is honoured as the Queen of May and of the fairies. She was the target of ardent attention from suitors competing to win her love.
Her Modern Energy
Cordelia defied her sea-god father’s wishes and married the man of her choice. In doing so, she sent a very clear message that despite her flowery and joyful energies, it is good to stand firm so good things can come your way.
You don’t need to go so far as to marry someone to emulate Cordelia, but you can become the heroine of your own story and stand your ground in the face of fear, threats or adversity.
Reconnect With Your Inner Cordelia
Go outside and burrow your feet in the ground as you repeat a mantra for strength. Or, if it is too cold where you are, place red flowers on your desk or home to keep her floral energy at a conscious level. Imagine your spine as strong as an oak tree but a graceful as a poppy – you’ll get your own way if you can give a little sway in your negotiations.
Pssst! Spring 1st moon is a good time to sow seeds for new projects or relationships.
What Would Cordelia Do?
… If she were in your situation, she would stand firm and make choices for her own happiness. While remaining gracious during the process, she wouldn’t compromise her well-being for the sake of ‘keeping the peace’.
