Daily Angel Oracle Card: Seven of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan
Seven of Fire: “Divination, Signs, Heeding Intuition, Looking Within, Seeking Answers, Discovery, Awareness, Trust”
Key Phrases: “Heed your intuition, a feeling of recognition, inexplicable coincidences, moments that repeat, personal interpretation is crucial, only you know the answer, look beyond the surface, observe and be aware.”
Card Meaning: “The Seven of Fire represents the development and use of one’s intuition to see the way forward, and predict possible outcomes. Intuition is that gut feeling – it is an instinctual or unconscious knowing – that, when you heed it, can keep you safe from making mistakes, and lead you to being in the right place at the right time. It is a feeling of recognition that we often ignore, but if we choose to heed, can have us moving through life in harmonious accord with our surroundings.
In actively using and then trusting your intuition on a regular basis, you may find you observe more, and in turn, you learn more. You start to see and take notice of signs and messages along the way. You take notice of those little inexplicable coincidences and moments that keep repeating, and, if you heed them, can take you on an adventure of discovery, revealing not only the truths you seek, but also your reason for being. Using and heeding your intuition can lead you to opportunities and experiences that offer the potential to both fulfill you and inspire others.
However, to trust in one’s intuition requires that you look within and determine what the message means to you personally. You can ask the advice of another. You can seek guidance from another. But only you know your answers. Personal interpretation is key. Trusting in the knowledge that is stored within your unconscious mind is key.
Third parties can offer insight, but they see and understand life through eyes that have been shaped and influenced by their own experiences, not yours. Only you know what something means for you, specifically. Only you know if something is right for you. The Seven of Fire represents a need to actively develop or trust in your intuition and instincts at this time. Look around you. Observe. Speak to the cards on a regular basis, and honour the truths revealed by going where your intuition leads you.”
Potential Blockage: “Divination means to foretell or predict the future. Sometimes, our intuition guides us, and at other times it is a simple awareness born of observation and paying attention. At other times, it is a marriage of both.
Every day we are given signs that, if heeded, can reveal what is to come. The Seven of Fire reversed, represents a need to watch for those signs and heed the insights they offer. Observe the people around you. Look closely at patterns of behaviour that repeat, and pay attention to words spoken that lack mirroring actions. Take not of promises broken, overreactions to questions, an inability to meet the eyes, and laughter that seems forced or contrived. They are all indications that there is more going on. Learn to watch. Learn to listen. Heed what your observations and senses are telling you. If you have a tendency to dismiss them, don’t. Don’t ignore them. If your gut tells you something is not as it seems, then look beyond the surface and see what is truly there… and then address it.
Seven of Fire as challenger cautions you against being dismissive. Pay attention. Look. Observe. Discern the truth. Address the contradictions and inconsistencies. See the signs – even the ones that might seem a little obscure and insignificant. They may foretell a future that is not in accordance with your goals.”*

Use your intuition. What is it telling you? This is your Higher Self, your Soul, talking to you. This is the way the guidance comes, through your body, through the whisperings of your heart. What feels light and right? What feels like it’s missing, or doesn’t sit well with you. Watch the people around you. Watch for actions matching words. This is authenticity, when promises are kept, and behaviour matches the talk. If they are not walking their talk, then you walk in the opposite direction, that one is not for you!
Do not override this guidance, it is a precious gift. Yes, you are right, trust in yourself. If you feel that feeling, and you just know something is not as it seems… trust that you are correct and wait for confirmation, it will come. Then listen to it and distance yourself. Create boundaries that allow you to assess the situation without getting dragged in, hook, line and sinker! Earth Angels and Lightworkers want to see the best in everyone, believe me, I KNOW! And yet, unfortunately, not everyone is in the place in their lives to give you their best, and you cannot fix them, or work on their potential for them. But you can bless and release them and let them go their own way, it is after all, their journey, just as this is yours.
Listen to yourself. Do not justify the behaviour of another for any reason. Be honest and true to you.
