Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eight of Fire, from the Dreams Of Gaia Oracle Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan
Eight of Fire: “Keywords: Action, Change, Transformation, Transmutation, Rebirth, Freedom, Renewed Purpose, Joy.”
Key Phrases: “Transformation through action, Change on a Physical Level, It is time to Act, Give Something a New Purpose, Transmute Negative Energy, A Renewed Sense of Purpose, Don’t be Lazy, Inaction May Yield Unwelcome Changes”
Card Meaning: “The Eight of Fire symbolizes transformation through action – change on a physical level that brings freedom and joy. Is it time to start a new job or quit one? Is it time to move house because the one you are living in restricts and hampers you?
Or is it time to lose a little bit of weight, and increase your mobility and physical fitness? Is it time to set yourself free of unnecessary weight, whether it be physical, emotional, or psychological, so that you can move through life with more ease?
If you need to make real changes in your life, now is the time to do it. No more thinking, no more planning, and no more dreaming. Now is the time to get up off the couch, to act, and transform yourself or your life, or to take an idea, a possession – something in your life or space – and repurpose or transform it.
It may be something as simple as painting a room, making it brighter and lighter. Maybe it is time to clean house from one end to the other, banishing dust and cobwebs, getting rid of all that serves no purpose or is broken and unused. Regardless, this is a time of action and change, and it is a change that, once experienced, will bring you a sense of freedom… of weight lifted. You will feel reborn, and will face the future with a renewed sense of purpose.
Regardless of what, it is time to transmute one state of being into another. It is time to act and to enjoy.”
Potential Blockage: “Do not halt your own progress or hamper your growth, at this time – even if you may feel a bit ‘lazy’ or even apathetic. be your own advocate, rather than your own enemy, and challenge yourself if you find yourself unwilling to act. The Eight of Fire reversed speaks to us when we are experiencing either a lazy mind or body, and it serves as a reminder that there may well be consequences if necessary changes are not made – and that those consequences will be of our own making.
If you have become a perpetual planner, who never follows through, or if you always promise, and then fail to deliver, or even if you just feel it is all too much like hard work, the Eight of Fire reversed appears to warn that inaction is also a choice – and one that can have dire consequences. Now is the time to get up and move, to avoid having your life transformed in a manner that is not to your liking.”*

Nothing symbolizes transformation and elevation better than the Phoenix. The fire burns away the old, the unnecessary and makes way for the new. Transmutation of energies, the dissolution of one and a merging into another… complete death and rebirth. The cycle is complete.
What if all that we brought forth in the last few months, all the old, heavy and dense energy, all the pain and trauma, is all being purged now into the fire? What if this is it? The ritual burning of the old you, the old ways, all that is consumed by the fire.
And rising up from the ashes is a brand new version of you. A bolder, wiser, stronger and more capable You? One who is more intuitive, and more in tune with what is going on around you. One who is able to manifest exactly what you desire. One who no longer seeks the counsel or advice of another, but trusts themselves completely. One who knows that anything is possible if you take action to create it.
One who slams all the old doors shut and moves forward fearlessly.
One who takes the opportunities presented without agonizing over them first.
One who gives and receives love with a heart wide open.
What else is possible?
Set your intention, right now, for the coming month. What will you create? Feel free to share it on my Facebook page under this post! Put it out there to the Universe as your first action step.
