Daily Angel Oracle Card: Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf
Osiris: “Regeneration ~ Transmutation ~ Beauty”
“Osiris is the enlightened ruler and husband of Isis who was murdered by his brother, Set. Through the love and magical practices of Isis, he was revived sufficiently to transmit to her the seed of Horus. He had previously fathered Anubis with Isis’s sister, Nephthys.
In Egyptian mystery teachings, all beings strive to awaken as Osiris. The purpose of scriptures such as the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which is actually the Book of Coming Forth by Day, is to guide souls through the transitions of death, as well as the transitions of the shamanic rites of passage through death and the Underworld.
Although Osiris has long been associated with death and called the Lord of the Underworld, it is more appropriate to acknowledge him here as the archetypal regenerative principle that transmutes outworn, deteriorating form into its renewed, shining manifestation of beauty. Osiris can be found in the primordial, watery deep, and in the river itself. He invites us to let go and rest upon his earthly green chest as he wraps his supportive arms around our bodies and turns us into that which we are in the process of becoming.
If you have chosen this card, you have been asked to enter deeply into the process of transmutation and regeneration. You are being given the opportunity to experience death of the old consciously and to embrace the beauty that is possible for each of us to experience as we are reborn into the next level of our potential.
Things are changing in your world, and it can be an exciting time. Regardless of what is happening around you, take time to be quiet, and listen for the whispers from Osiris that come from the deepest recesses of your being. He will speak to you of possibilities, potential, and beauty. Feel the stirrings of regeneration within you when you commune with him.”*

It’s up to us whether we let change knock us down or lift us up. It can be terrifying, our fears reducing us to feeling like children, searching for help and advice with every step. Or we can gather our strength and decide to shift our perspective and embrace change with grace and ease, trusting in the Universe that everything will work for the highest good of all.
Surrender to the change and find peace in the moment. No matter how chaotic your world seems right now, take some time to be outside and breathe fresh air. Communicate with Mother Gaia, put your spine against a big, supportive tree. Ask for signs from your Animal Spirit Guides. Eke out a few minutes of silent contemplation or meditation every day. Incorporate yoga and deep breathing. These simple measures will help you to retain your balance and find your center not matter what is happening around you, it just might help you to stay sane in the eye of the storm.
Most importantly, release any and all old, limiting thought patterns and need to control.
Change is in the works and cannot be stopped.
However, it can be calmly navigated.
Moment by moment.
Breath by breath.
