Daily Angel Oracle Card: Nine Of Wands, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realms, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore
Nine Of Wands: “He felt it first in his core. A spark in his solar plexus began to glow and then burn. The energy radiated throughout his body. With every movement, his aura crackled and popped. The desire, the need, to create, to do, engulfed him. He welcomed the heat and reveled in the inner burning. acknowledging his passion, he danced with the energy until he became the energy, until he lost control and the energy became him and he was lost to it. With a bust of flame, a red heat that glowed white-hot at the center, he was gone.
Consciousness melting, body dissolving, he fought to keep himself solid, to no avail. Liquid heat now danced in him, singing a new song with powerful tones and a chaotic melody. It moved and churned in him until it became him, until he found himself. Transformed. Tried by fire. Tempered. All that was no longer him burned away, and he discovered himself anew. Stronger now, he rose, truer and purer, from that which destroyed him, or perhaps from that which created him. He danced himself into being.
Divinatory Meaning: “The ephemeral power of fire is so beguiling. One taste of the creative force, the passionate drive, makes us feel so alive that we want more. We seek out the intoxicating thrill of doing more, creating more, being more. As we achieve more, our confidence grows. Successes increase. We take on more than we can manage until we collapse under the weight of the ephemeral flames. In that state, we are forced to reassess, to consider our priorities. What is it that we really want? What is it that matters most? From the center of the chaos we have created, we reemerge with the certainty of our true passion. With that singular focus, we find new power.”*

We are facing the element of fire; complete transmutation through the burning away of the old. Rebuilding from the ground up. Every aspect taken into account. The darkness and the Light dismantled, purified, concentrated. Completely transformed. A metamorphosis. Rising up from the ashes of our “story” of our identity. Rising up from our old ways, leaving all that dense energy behind.
This is Alchemy. Turning lead to gold; darkness to Light. This is Life expanded, stretched, remodeled. A second chance; an overhaul; a revamping; a complete recreation from the ground up. And you get to decide how it looks, how it feels, what it holds, who you share it with.
First face the fire. Burn away that which is no longer needed. Offer it to the flame with pure heart; trust that what is coming is better than anything you could even have imagined.
The best is yet to come. Or maybe it’s here now.
