Daily Angel Oracle Card: Iris ~ Harmony, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan
Iris ~ Harmony
The Myth: “Iris is the daughter of the sea god Thaumas and the nymph Electra. She is Hera’s personal messenger, able to travel freely through all realms. Represented by the rainbow, Iris is said to provide water to the clouds, and she carries a pitcher of water from the river Styx – the rive that creates the boundaries between Earth and the realm of Hades. The water from the river has many magical powers. Iris uses it to make those who perjure themselves go to sleep. Like Hermes, Iris carries a herald’s wand.
Like the rainbow, Iris is the link between god and human-kind, heaven and Earth. Through the unity of sun and water, she creates the full spectrum of colours and brings harmony with her wherever she goes, maintaining communication between the realms.”
The Message: “If you have drawn this card, it is time to pay attention to your feelings. If you are experiencing conflict in your relationships, it may be time to find out why. Are you happy in your heart? Are you looking after your inner needs? Are you confident and comfortable within yourself? Do you listen to yourself and honour your word to yourself? All of these things directly impact your relationships and your ability to communicate with the world around you.
This is a time for restoring harmony, first to yourself, then to the world around you. This card is about harmony of the heart, and that harmony can exist only when you take care of yourself. This is a good time to write in a journal or sit in a reflective space and focus on what you are feeling and what you need at this time in order to feel nurtured and whole within yourself.
This is the time to find the loving space that exists within your heart and truly open yourself up to love, kindness, generosity, and forgiveness. In order to do this, you may need to take the time to feel love and kindness toward yourself. Only when you have nourished yourself can the abundance of love and joy that exists within you flow out into the world. And it is only then that you will be able to create true harmony with others in a clear and balanced way.”*

This is a very auspicious message for the first day after the new moon. Did you set your intentions? Iris is here to assist you in making them come to fruition by delivering your message to the Universe. The more clarity you use in setting your intention, the easier it will be to pass along your message.
Expect a lift in the energy, a shift that starts things back into motion after the lull at the beginning of the month. Things are going to start building momentum, so it is up to you to clear the way. Find harmony in yourself, find belief in yourself and find your voice, your strength and your courage. All will come in handy soon.
Open up to possibility, no more holding back. Release anything that has been standing in the way of your happiness and your freedom and move forward fearlessly now.
From the Heart.
