Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Lord Of The Forest, from the Heart Of Faerie Oracle Card deck, by Brian and Wendy Froud
The Lord Of The Forest: “Eternal Masculine ~ Action ~ Strength.”
“Masculine energy is something that we have as a part of our basic energy makeup. It does not matter if we are male or female, as we all have a driving force that gets us to do things. We need it to function in the human world, to do everyday tasks, and to move forward with vision and strength. Masculine energy can be very single minded. That is what helps it get things done, but it can also blind us to some of the subtleties of a relationship. The Lord Of The Forest symbolizes this great, driving energy that oversees everything in his domain. He is the force that impregnates thoughts and ideas and allows them to come to fruition. He stands guard over the realm in the eternal dance with the Lady, the feminine in everything.
If The Lord Of The Forest appears in your reading, it is a sign that it is important to do something. You have been dreaming, now act on your dreams. In a relationship, take the lead. Tell your partner what is important to you. Actions speak and to keep the masculine and feminine in balance, now is the time to act.”*
– Brian and Wendy Froud
Action, action, action. We are being pushed to take a step forward, no matter whether it be a large leap of faith or a teeny tiny step, action is what is called for. What is nagging you inside your head? That repetitive thought that comes out of nowhere, the one that is validated by overheard conversations, songs, TV shows on the topic or Facebook posts of articles which make way too much sense? That’s a sign from your guides. Are you listening, seeing and feeling the guidance you are being given right now? Are you receiving, or are you denying?
Sometimes it’s just easier to stay the course of compromise and safety. It’s just too hard to rock the boat, change course and ruffle everyone’s feathers. But yet, what is it costing you in the long run to put your dreams on hold for so long out of fear? Ships can end up miles off course by steering only a degree in the wrong direction. It takes courage and commitment to follow YOUR path, the one that comes from your heart… not the one set out for you by the expectations of others.
What can you do, today, that will put you back on course? What can you do right now to shift your perception of what’s possible? Where can you draw some inspiration from; seek your passion; fuel the fire of transmutation and transformation? Maybe there is someone who has been on a similar journey that you are considering and they can be your shining example of success. Maybe you have to have faith and write your own story.
Whatever it is, it’s time to move, Dear One.
Take the first step and the Universe will be there to catch you.
With love and light.
