Take your friends with you when you travel to the East.
10 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all o their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, may have marriage or business problems because of inflexible vies and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe. Bless or repair your house.
Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind. A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.

The East – symbolizes the new beginning.
The song of OTYKEN very powerfully emphasizes that we should move to the East. It is not just looking east, but we are to actively create the exodus. The cold snowstorm, the burning sun are waiting for us and the earth will swallow us. However, we are moving to the East because the friends of the East are helping us with our lessons. We need our community of friends to go out together and we need the friends of the East. This is the time we are in now.
Thank you Mary – this bore out today. It’s a long journey to the East and this time is just the beginning for what we will see bear fruit next Summer for another harvest in the Fall. We lighten the load when we don’t have to “have it all now.” We still haven’t seen the cause and whole effect from this year’s journey. When we do, we’ll know we can stand the tests of time that leads to tomorrow. Thank you so much for the wisdom you share. love, in lak’ech, Debra
