Daily Angel Oracle Card: Elemental Embrace, from the Sacred Geometry Oracle Cards For The Visionary Path, by Francene Hart
Elemental Embrace: “Elemental Forces ~ Synthesis”
“This card speaks of connecting with elemental forces. Molten lava flows into the ocean under a full moon, where two pairs of lovers inhabiting the steam plumes are revealed. They embody the passionate embrace of fire, creating earth and transmuting water into air. There is an atmosphere of raw creative energy emerging from the planet’s womb. You know how it feels, though you may never have experienced it. Coming from a primal place in our cellular memory, this feeling holds the power of the elements and speaks directly to the relationship all humans have with these elements and with Mother Earth.
Embedded within this card are two seven sided stars. Seven is an integrating number and here represents the synthesis of body, mind and Spirit with the elemental forces. Seven indicates stages of transformation and is a self-contained chronicle for quickening creativity.
How can you more fully appreciate your connection with elemental forces?
You may decide to put your hands in the earth and grow a garden. Water it and see how sunlight and air combine to feed you and enhance growth and beauty in your life. You may sit by a fire with your feet on the ground, watching sparks fly into the air on a dark summer’s eve. Perhaps you will learn to enhance your living space through a discipline such as feng shui. In any way you choose, find an understanding of the relationships among elemental forces so that you might live in harmony within your environment and merge your everyday life with the magic and mystery of the cosmos.
If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Circumstances have led to a feeling of separation. Reconnect with friends.”*

We are being asked to reconnect our bodies, minds and spirits to the elemental forces of Nature, those who make up our very being, as well as everything in our Universe. The elements are magical, they are scientific. They are the basis for everything; they are the cornerstone of creation. We are made up of water. We survive on the air. We are nurtured by the Earth. We are warmed by the fire. We are sparked into existence by Ether, the most mysterious of the elements, being that of pure Creative Love energy.
When we honour the elements through sacred ritual we reconnect ourselves to their deep and profound wisdom. We reconnect to the Heart of our Great Beloved Mother, Gaia and all of her creations. Spending time in nature is a wonderful way to reconnect to the elements; camping being on of the very best when we can cut free of technology and reconnect with the old ways… if you can find a campsite without WIFI that is!
Setting up an alter in the house is also an amazing way to honour the elements. We can represent each of the elements in a way that is meaningful to us; for example we can use a candle for fire, a vase of flowers to represent water and earth, and a musical instrument such as a flute to represent air. Ether can be represented by a blessing, prayer, poem or story of love and creation, or through the song played by the flute, creating peace and tranquility. Do what feels right to you, as there are no right and wrong ways to honour these great ancestors of ours. Sacred ceremony is personal and should feel right to you. It should be created in a part of the house which feels like a santuary; peaceful, private and comforting.
