Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Standing Stone, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Standing Stone: “Standing stones are symbols of authority, boundary markers, and monuments. As objects of power and balance, unyielding and strong, blending earth and spirit energies, they once formed a meeting place where people in a community could decide issues and settle individual disputes before the gods. In this circle of smaller stones, smaller stones, a community council could sit in arbitration or discern justice, hearing evidence and rendering a decision. The tradition of engraving stone obelisks and tablets with the laws of a society relates to the power of the megalith and here symbolizes concepts of Craft practices. The stone has been carved with the triquetra symbol of the Triple Goddess, the scales upon which the facts of a matter can be weighed for a balanced and impartial decision, the Craft ethic of ‘harm none’ for fairness and compassion, and the labyrinth signifying the path one must follow to reach the heart of the matter and find the truth. The path leading to this circle of stones passes through the dark forest, and yet the light of truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth of the matter will be revealed.

Objectivity is emphasized when this card appears in a reading. The Standing Stone shows that one has gathered information and fairly evaluated a matter, and may therefore trust the decision reached. When paired with the King of Swords, this card indicates a legal matter or court decision. The level of success in this issue may be revealed by the surrounding cards.

The shadowy forest shows that nature also has a hand in justice, for while there is law, there is also the law of returns, karma, and retribution achieved by the actions of others who carry out the decision and return the scales to balance. The small grassy clearing is sprinkled with daisies, for truth, authority, harmony, and communication. While a spider, a symbol of power, wisdom, and balance, weaves a web between two of the stone circle stones.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Objectivity, Impartiality, Trust Your Own Decision, Fairness, Balance, Truth, Virtue, Honor, Law, Prevail In A Legal Matter, Equilibrium, An Agent Working On Your Behalf, Advice, Consideration, Conscience, Impartiality, Equity, Reward, Verdict, Retribution For The Aggrieved, Harmony, Natural Law.”

As Challenger: “Misrepresentation, Bias, Intolerance, Legal Action Delayed, Complications, Gossip, False Accusation, Tedious Bureaucracy, Cloudy Perception.”

Prompt Words: “Objectivity, Fairness, Trust Your Own Decisions.”*

This is a message of facts and of the laws of Nature. There is no getting caught up in emotion here, of succumbing to the victim mentality or of drowning in our sorrows. There is also no room for falsity, bravado or deception. This is a message of truth.

Justice will be served. The equation is karmic, mathematical. The jury cannot be swayed with tears or false promises.

Boundaries are in place. Intimidation is not possible. Truth is critical, vital.

Make your decisions based on the Highest Good and they simply cannot go wrong. Create from a heart centered place, but not emotional. There is no need for retribution, only for fairness and equality here.

The only way out of a current dilemma is through the truth. The mind plays tricks but the heart will lead you with honour.

  • My fave card so far .. I absolutely love the picture for all kinds of reasons , th daisies , th scales (My sign) and at first I thought it read happy home .. only when clicking and looking closer did I see it said harm none .. word perfect .. as I believe not only doctors should take th Hippocratic oath as first do no harm .. all humans should .

    Also th fact th card was number 11 is very significant for me as when my first child was born he was born on 11th March.. nothing wierd there , then daughter on 11th August , I had since found out there dad had been born in 11 delacy drive so when I was expecting my 3rd child an my due date was end of Feb I told people I knew for sure it would be 11th and it was.

    I’m very glad Doreen has been baptised as praying is something I had relied on for years an th 1st time I knew for sure God spoke back to me was a work colleague had told me how her 3rd boy had been trying for a baby for 5 years an coz he was a postman (great job .. love my post people) He also felt a slight inferiority to his 2 other bro’s as they were coppers , as I’m an empath I felt his pain an said I was going to pray an ask God to give them a child .. months later she excitedly told me his wife was pregnant …

    … th child was born on my birthday I knew God was letting me know he had heard me .

    I also prayed for one of my mental health workers as she came to my door apologising for having missed an appointment an filled with tears when she said she had had another miscarriage.. her fourth one .. this distressed me an I wanted so much to ease her pain so I told her my previous story an said I would pray for her … an yes she became pregnant again a matrer of months down th line an had Γ  healthy child . Anyone who has experienced miscarriage will know th odds on that happening so soon were stacked against her as her body should of needed much longer to recover .. miracles of God .. all give him a wave .. he’s on his “high cloud” there’s jokes in that although I’m done for th day .. peace an love : *
