Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Novice Of Avalon, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid
The Novice Of Avalon: “Innocence ~ Beginner ~ Ignorance ~ New Skill Without Practice ~ Unstable Curiosity”
The Messengers OF Avalon ~ The Novice:
“Innocence, naivete, foolishness, early knowledge not yet integrated, the ability to see the world untainted, and learning ability – these are the aspects of the Novice as she appears in your life.
The Novice is reminding you to be teachable and humble. If you do not know something, do not pretend that you do. Chances are that you will make an error that may cost you more than you wish to pay.
New information is coming, and this is the time to be open to learning and expanding. The Novice also reminds you to be like a child and remember the wonder and awe that you once had for the world around you… when discovering magic was an essential part of everyday experience.
The Novice reminds you that you need to stop and ask yourself, “What lesson must I learn here?” The lesson is always mirrored in the experience in front of you. Dig deep into the workings of whatever situation you are inquiring about. You do not have to look far, for the answer is right in front of you.
Sometimes it may feel as if you have two left feet and do not know how to dance, or that perhaps you are fumbling in the dark and fear that you may be left behind. It is all right to be in the “not knowing.” This is the place where new understanding takes time to integrate.
Be gentle with yourself. The greatest gift The Novice reminds you of is that you are always at the beginning of some area of your life. Patience and slow movement is requires when The Novice appears.
Before moving forward, perhaps you need time to journal your thoughts and receive clarity about what the mystery invited you to learn. Then rejoice! The Novice of Avalon is on a path to higher knowledge and abundant manifestation and does not stay a Novice for long.”

The energy here is of a puppy or a child; it is curious and enthusiastic even if a little messy and untamed. This is positive energy to move forward with, as long as it remains in this realm and does not stray to reckless or risky. There is so much to learn, it may be hard to focus on just one skill at a time, yet if we can try to employ patience, learning one step at a time, we can harness it’s pure creative energy and use it to manifest some pretty amazing things!
We are held back by so many rules; trained to colour within the lines, stay inside the box and not to rock the boat… to name a few cliches we are burdened with over our formative years. Yet, if we can go back to dancing, painting, running and jumping in puddles with the wild abandon of a small child, we can find a whole new way to look at the world.
Through new eyes, fresh and pure, untainted by the woes of the world. With this energy we can simultaneously heal and create. We can do it as we laugh and skip and twirl; make daisy chains, hug trees and chase the dog around. We can approach the world with curiosity and big, expansive love.
And in doing so, we can make a difference.
