Daily Angel Oracle Card: Barnabus and the Prince, from the Wild Wisdom Of The Faery Oracle Card deck, by Lucy Cavendish, artwork by Selina Fenech
Barnabus and the Prince: “Adventures; Discovery; Travel; Meeting Destiny”
“The journey, explorer, seeker, wanderer, hero. For your dreams to come true, you must take action and get out of your comfort zone! then you will be in the right place, at the right time.
In this strong and powerful card of seeking out your soulmate, the prince is actively in search of his true love. He knows she will not be a “missing” part of him, he does not seek to find another just like him, only in female form. He will know, though, when he finds his true love, because the frog will sing his song when she is reached. You see, in the lore of the frog, their voice heralds a downpour, the refreshing rain quenching the thirst of the dry earth. For Barnabus, a seeker and a prince on a quest, his dream is about to be realized. So, when you receive this card in your reading, you know that your quest and your search is going to create new opportunities, and there will be a successful “end” to the search. You will find what you seek, and so much more. Listen for the song of the natural world. When you hear it, that is when you know your wish has been granted. You need to quest, to see your search as a journey, an adventure, and even travel to go where you are being guided to bring about the realization of a dream. The way to find love, adventure, gifts and mystery is to be brave, and go, finally, on that quest!
Divinatory Meanings: “A dream, a vocation, success, or purposeful activity is reaching out for you, just as you have reached out for it. Use the power of your voice to call out for it. Let the world and the natural world know that you wish for them to deliver. Seeking out a mate. Actively searching for a soul mate, searching for you… synchronicity. In order for you to be in alignment with your dream, for your dream to dream you, you must be walking the right path, and be in the right place at the right time. So this card reminds you that staying in your present comfort zone will not bring about that which in your heart you year for – you must become active and create. It also reminds you that travel and adventure can bring about soul growth that will let your song grow stronger – and it is in this way that your soul kind can find you. Have no fear. The drought will be broken. But you must be an adventurer! Your tears will cleanse the way. You will change several times throughout this lifetime; reincarnating within the one life. You do not need to “die” to go home or be with the one you love. What kind of transportation do you use? It may be time for a re-think.
If This Card Comes as Challenger: “Refusal to move, to seek out and to be courageous. Staying at home, being introverted even when you know the time to extend yourself is here. Refusing to actively engage in creating what it is you wish for. Anti-heroic stance. Feeling cynical and unmotivated about love. Telling yourself that travel and movement is not necessary for you, that you cannot, and becoming adept at excuses to justify your status. The refuge of the broken-hearted is to say “love does not exist” and that “all men are bad.” Time to open up to the potential partners in your life, and see them at a soul level.”*

If it is Love that you seek, buckle your seat belt, adventure awaits! It’s time to move, mix up that old, stagnant energy. Get out of your comfort zone and do things up differently. Get out there and do what you love. Do something brand new; even if it scares you. Ride the wave of exhilaration right into your future. Nothing can hold you back.
Remember that finding your true Love starts from within. If you are lacking in confidence, feeling self-doubt or low self-esteem. Or If you think that you must improve yourself before you are worthy of true Love, then this is where your journey lies. Find that true love within you FIRST. No exceptions. There is no such thing as finding validation through another person. There is no such thing as approval through the eyes of others. This is only an illusion.
Take off the mask. Love yourself first. When you can love yourself, you will attract those who love you. Do not hinge your self-worth on the opinions of others. Paint your world with vibrant colours. Find your passion. Ramp up your energy by doing what you love to do; your vitality is a magnet to joy, love and abundance.
Be the love you wish for, and that Love will find you.
