Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mermaid With Pink Lotus, from the Myths And Mermaids Oracle Card deck, by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto
Mermaid With Pink Lotus:
“Close your drowsy, drooping eyes
And come with me to Paradise
Leave your cares for just an hour
To focus on a floating flower
Let the water soothe your flesh
And leave you rested, fit and fresh.”
“A fair mermaid drifts languidly among a tangle of lily pads in a tranquil lagoon. A single pink lotus blossom adorns her hair, a second floats nearby in the pool. So relaxed is she that her slight movements do little to disrupt the surface of the water.”
Divination Message: Make An Effort To Relax
“Stop what you are doing and take a deep breath. It is time to relax. You are not selfish, and that can be a blessing. Helping your loved ones is an important part of who you are. But sometimes it is ok to set aside your worries about others and take some time for yourself.
Maybe you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed. Try not to let it wear you down. Instead, try these relaxation techniques to improve your health and well-being:
- Close your eyes and imagine a personal paradise. What do you see, hear and feel? Let yourself become engulfed in these sensations. Allow your breathing to become slow and even, and notice your energy flow throughout your body. This will help you to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
- Take a hint from our mermaid friend and let yourself be soothed by a calming water. A walk near a beach or a lake, or a rest near a bubbling fountain can bring inner tranquility.
- Are you finding it difficult to relax? A change in environment can be most helpful in reducing stress. A short getaway for some pampering at a spa could be just what your body and mind need to chase away that stress.
Antithesis (When this card comes to you as challenger): Time To Get Back To Work
“You have been investing a lot of time and resources on your health and well-being these days. It has been most helpful, but now you are ready to rejoin the world. Wake up and get moving now.”*

Here we have another message of receptivity. We also have a message of water, which represents our current state of emotions. We are being asked to relax, give ourselves a bit of a break and assimilate the energies of the full moon and the lunar eclipse that we just experienced. We are being reminded to use our Divine Feminine aspect of receptivity; again a reminder to hold release the remnants of the old and hold space for the new.
As we calm our bodies, we can use our minds to lead us into a deeper sense of serenity and awareness through visualization. We can also use the element of water as a tool to help facilitate the removal of dense energies by having a sea salt bath, or even better, getting our feet in a natural body of water (in warmer climates a trip to the beach, lake, river or stream is excellent medicine!) Or we can improvise by spending time gazing at the crashing waves and letting their powerful energy remove negativity and soothe us; body, mind and spirit.
Things are about to pick up pace, and we need this small reprieve. Take a rest. Relax. Meditate; do yoga; focus on your breath. Schedule some alone time. Absorb the new energies. Listen for message. Watch for signs and symbols. The Universe will use this time to communicate with you, when you are open, receptive, contemplative and aware.
Recharge your batteries, you will need them in the journey ahead.
