Light in the Darkness
Chrysanthemum’s Magical Specialties: longevity, mental clarity, optimism, protection, solving mysteries, soothing grief
A fall and winter flower, chrysanthemum prefers to bloom when the light becomes diminished and the length of the days begins to wane. And yet, chrysanthemum is deeply aligned with the sun – the name chrysanthemum comes from the Greek word chrysos and translates to “gold flower.” As such, chrysanthemum’s wisdom is about shining light into darkness: solving mysteries, piercing confusion or muddle-headedness with the bright light of clarity, raising flagging spirits, and generally bolstering energy during times when it would otherwise begin to wane.
With regard to your inquiry, the appearance of this card may also have to do with dispersing depression with brightness and optimism, traversing heavy or dubious energies while encompassed in an envisioned shroud of bright protective light, looking deeply into the shadows to solve a mystery or claim a formerly disowned aspect of yourself, or reviving yourself with a boost of clarity, vitality, and energy.
Remember that you are powerful beyond measure: if you so choose, you can overcome challenges, face fears, power through, and emerge victorious. Simply tune into chrysanthemum’s magic, and then call on and mentally fill yourself, your surroundings, your loved ones, and any situation with the bright, powerful, invigorating, golden-white light of the sun.
