The Southern Cassowary is the Keeper of the Forest and it’s wisdom. She not only holds the knowledge of the Rainforest but she also helps to create it.
This space, the Rainforest, is wild and vulnerable, just like Cassowary energy. As the rainforest is needed for balance of the Earth’s climate, the rainforest needs Cassowary to create the forest. Therefore Cassowary holds a sensitive role in Earth’s balance and equilibrium.
Cassowary is fierce, independent and holds the energy of equality, balance and protection.
The female Cassowary reigns Queen of the rainforest and is dominant, larger and more colourful than the male and knows her sexual power. Her role in the family is to create and continues her journey to create more rainforest and reproduction of eggs.
The male Cassowary incubates and provides nurture and comfort for the rearing of the young. He’s the teacher and is the sole parent. Therefore, Cassowary also teaches you Father and Child lessons.
Cassowary is strong, fearsome and has the ability to carve her own path through the forest, using the tools she was born with and grows as she becomes older and wears as a crown. She will courageously defend her territory and is the most feared bird on the planet due to her talon claws.
Cassowary’s home: North East Queensland.
Cassowary’s current status: Endangered.
Threats to Cassowary: The loss, fragmentation and modification of habitat. Being hit by cars, dog and pig attacks, human interference and disease.
Creating A Sacred Space with Sacred Art
The process and belief behind these prints are to bring the energy and message of an Australian Bird in order to connect with natures sacredness and to integrate that into your space. Birds, animals, trees and other beings are intertwined with natures cycles, land and wisdom and hold special knowledge in which you can draw from. Placing these sacred artworks in your space or at your altar helps to create and tap into your own wisdom and provide powerful symbols for ritual work, spiritual goals and sacred space.
Each image will eventually become a part of an oracle card deck.
