Four of Wands
It’s tradition to hold a Jewish wedding in a Chuppah, a primitive canopy made of four polls where the couple would stand during their wedding ceremony. So you’ve probably figured there is a good vibe about this celebratory card!
Traditionally the four polls were made from two species of wood. A Cedar tree, planted by Jewish boys and a Pine by the girls. The same trees that will be used to construct the primitive dwelling at the time of their wedding ceremony.
There is a deep meaning to the Cedar tree, as it largely grows in rocky regions. Representing the characteristics and qualities of a perfect husband. While Pines are regarded as one of the most beautiful trees of the land. Symbolising the spiritual beauty and union of God, so the way the husband should approach and regard his wife throughout her lifetime.
You’re invited to walk through the floral gate of the four of wands today, to celebrate the life, joy and the love you bring to the world. See the castle in the distance? Like the interior castle that the mystic Teresa of Ávila describes in her spiritual writings. We are all on a spiritual journey, building our interior sanctuary and dwelling. The rooms we furnish are the results of the beliefs we’ve acquired over our lifetime. Let us celebrate all that we’ve accomplished to-date. Let us make a renewed commitment to build the most sacred castle imaginable, an interior that we can be deeply proud of, a place that truly reflects our beliefs, understanding and authenticity.
