Adaptability is necessary for survival. The ability to adapt to any given situation gives you a certain kind of advantage over your own life and over those who are unable to adapt. Whatever you are trying to accomplish now requires a combination of alertness, endurance, and adaptability. Letting go of the outcome will help you to adapt more swiftly.
The Willow tree is a perfect model for being able to bend rather than break under pressure, as the wind pushes its long draping leaves from side to side. Due to a compound it contains from which aspirin is derived, the willow is associated with healing pain when there has been a breakage of some sort.
Whatever your current challenge may be, you have spiritual assistance to spring back into alignment and wellbeing. If your challenge is a physical one, the use of adaptogenic herbs – herbs that help you adapt to stress may be particularly helpful now.
