Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Rarr, from the Faery Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth
The Rarr: “Wild energy. Pure Potential”
“Once upon a time there were three pink boys (more or less) and a Rarr, who all played in Brian’s son Toby’s bedroom. They liked the midnight tea parties, the magical ambience, and of course, they liked Toby. Unfortunately, the Pink Boys got too rowdy, and Brian had to throw them out into the garden, which was where they belonged anyway. The Rarr learned from the experience in a rarrish way, and it quieted down a bit during the midnight hours.
Rarrs are not naughty or wicked, just energetic. They are also not very discriminating. They like to join into whatever excitement is going on and add energy to it. In a way, they are pure potential, and they potentize whatever is happening. Rarrs are attracted to mobs rioting and to meditation groups rising toward ecstasy and to any other strong energy states.
Rarrs are a bit like Tigger in the Pooh stories. They bounce, they zoom, they go off on wild tangents. (Brian hasn’t painted a Wild Tangent yet, as far as I know, but I know what they look like, having encountered more then my share).
Think of the rrarrr of a growling dog, the rrarrr of an engine revving up, the rrr of a purring cat, and the arrr in Arrrugh! As I say, Rarrs do not discriminate. It is up to us to do that. They put a live spark into whatever is happening. It is our choice what we do with it.”
Starter Reading: “A Rarr in your cards encourages you to be especially attentive to what you are dong with your energy and intentions. Do not get carried away by the Rarr’s bouncy enthusiasm, but do take advantage of the energy. You can accomplish a great deal with the energy being made available to you. This is a good time. Note that the Rarr is not grounded – and is not meant to be – but humans need to keep their feet firmly on the earth. When you encounter the Rarr, breathe slowly. Center. Earth yourself. Be clear about your objectives then go for them.”
As Challenger: “The Rarr as challenger indicates a terrible problem. Both the querent and the Rarr are losing (or have lost) control and are thrashing about in midair. Faery glamour and faery zaps are running wild. Illusions and delusions are rife. Misunderstandings escalate. A cold shower is definitely in order. Practice grounding exercises. Meditate. Back off and look at things coolly. This may not be enough, but please try.”*

This card totally resonates with me. I think these little guys sneak into my house when my kids are starting to amp up at night and make them totally WILD! In fact, as I write this I can’t really believe just how much energy they have, and how hard it can be to get them to settle down. It is enough to make me stark raving mad. I’m pretty sure that if I found out that the Faeries got involved, things would make so much more sense. The missing piece of the puzzle.
Then maybe I could thank them for their efforts and return them to the garden! Way too exhausting to deal with that kind of energy inside, particularly in the evening.
But, that’s just me. I think there is more to this message. There is a bit of a warning here too. Not to get all caught up in the drama. Not to be impulsive. To use your energy wisely. There is great potential here for manifestation, so be careful what you wish for! Don’t be reckless, impatient and greedy, or you will be caught up in the vortex of disillusion. Wait it out. Plan it wisely. Wish for what is best for All.
Know that the energy of the Fae is a powerful force, and they can make amazing allies. But they also can be tricky, amplifying things into a frenzy. If you are already scattered and unclear, you could manifest a tough lesson instead of making a powerful choice. They will work with you either way.
Slow down and breathe deeply. Make a plan of action. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s and do your research. And then muster all your energy and enthusiasm and channel it into exactly what you wish to create. With grace and ease.
