Hecate ~ Crossroads

The Myth: “Hecate is an incredibly important, powerful and complicated deity. Although she appears throughout Greek mythology, she actually predates it. She is said to be the key bearing queen of the entire cosmos. Hecate is associated with gateways to hidden realms of existence and is the keeper of sacred knowledge. She is present at the threshold of transformation and represents the road to unknown places.

She is depicted as a triple faced goddess with the heads of a dog, horse and bear, or those of a dog, serpent and lion. She may also appear as a maiden, mother and crone, representing the passage through the phases of life and wisdom. She is connected to wilderness and wild creatures and is guarded by black dogs. She carries a key, symbolizing her role as gatekeeper, and a torch, which shows that she is one who illuminates and brings wisdom. She brings light to dark places, revealing the treasures hidden in the unconscious. She also carries a knife – which represent power, discernment, and the ability to cut through all things – and rope, symbolizing the cutting of the umbilical cord in birth and the severance of body and spirit in death.”

The Message From Hecate: “If you have drawn this card, a major, life changing crossroads lies before you. Hecate beckons you to choose a direction. You must make a decision. Change is inevitable, but the direction of change is completely up to you. Hecate is calling you to the untamed and wild areas of life. You must follow this deepest of calls. You know the decision you must make – it is probably a terrifying decision, yet it is one that will take you to your highest calling. Do not be afraid of what you feel deep inside. Follow that inner wisdom and let it lead you to your destiny.”*

This is the last day of April, and we stand at a crossroads. Create more of what we have been creating? Or create something new. All up to each and every one of us to make this decision. Move forward or stay stuck? Move forward without looking back.

What do you see before you? How do you feel about facing change? Do you turn tail and run back in the direction you came from, no matter how old and worn out it may be? Do you stay stuck or miserable or in victimhood or in a compromising situation out of fear of change? Or do you find your inner courage and boldly take a step out of your comfort zone and face your fears head on? Your choice.

Hecate is a powerful Ally, listen to her call. Find a new way of seeing your place in the world. She asks that we stop holding ourselves back through fear and draining our precious energies. She encourages us to start something new. Take off the masks, shake off the old persona you have been clinging to. Discover the wild parts of yourself; that inner warrior that is ready to emerge into the world.

You are at the threshold of transformation. What will you do with this amazing opportunity?

All up to you

Namaste

Divine Consciousness

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Divine Consciousness, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, illustrations by Louis Dyer Published by Rockpool Publishing

Divine Consciousness: “Divine awakening! Open your mind to new possibilities.”

“Working with divine consciousness, we can open ourselves to deep thought and meaning that cannot be described in normal language; it is felt and expressed with the heart and higher self. Peace, bliss, divine power and unlimited expansion awaits you when you consciously connect at this level.

Between soul and spirit, it is possible to connect our inner being to divine consciousness. Divine consciousness enables us to open our mind to different states of reality and communication.

Right now you are experiencing an awakening! Congratulations. You are raising your consciousness and are energetically shifting. Your divine blueprint has been activated into a new state of awareness. You may feel oversensitive, but it will soon pass as you adjust to this new vibration. You are now connected to the healing energy of the divine; miracles can occur, now, if you keep a positive mindset.

Archangel Gabrielle supervises these transitions as you become connected in mind, body and spirit. Being connected to the divine consciousness aligns you with your divine purpose, grows and expands your spirit; encouraging you to remember who you were before you came into being.

You are encouraged to meditate to remove yourself from earthly dramas, gossip and physical issues. Be gentle with yourself. Eat nutritious food, drink enough water and get plenty of rest. By connecting to a state of consciousness higher than our mind’s physical awareness, we eliminate impurities and toxicity within the body.

Spirit, higher thought forms, angelic connections and animal messages will come clearly now. Keep a journal for the next 21 days to record the thoughts, feelings, and messages, meditation and dream states that may arise or appear to you throughout the day as your body adjusts to these new energies.”

Prayer: “I Am at one with the divine energy. I allow divinity to flow through me and align my unique vibration to the highest form of universal love.”*

~ By Anna Stark

What does awakening mean to you? What do you envision changing if you were to wake up? In yourself and your surroundings. How would things look or feel different from how they are presently? And where do these perceptions come from?

What if awakening is so subtle you almost don’t recognize it when it happens? What if it is like walking out of one room and into another. Or out of your house and into the forest. Maybe it is like turning on the light. Maybe it is actually a softening, a brightening, an opening up. An awareness of something bigger than yourself.

Maybe it is not elusive at all but instead contained within your next breath. A shedding of the programming, of the illusions, of the structures and institutions. A reconnection. A realization. An opening up and receiving.

It’s happening now. Things are shifting and changing so subtly and yet so profoundly that things will never be the same.

Thank goodness for that.

Get out under the full moon and contemplate your place in the Universe. Open up and connect with the energies that are available to us all. Decide to step onto your path of Soul purpose and greatest Light.

And so it is

Namaste

Queen Of Earth

Published April 28, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Queen Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Queen Of Earth, from the Dreams Of Gaia Tarot Card deck, by Ravynne Phelan

Queen Of Earth Keywords: “Earth Mother, Pragmatic, Real, Kind, Nurturing, Abundant, Fertile Mind, Wise.”

Key Phrases: “Touch, connect, and create with your hands. Be supportive and nurturing. Seek out a motherly role model. A need for wise and honest counsel. Kindness is required. You are loved and supported. Mother, do not smother. Share the responsibilities.”

Queen Of Earth card meaning: “The Queen Of Earth symbolizes a real, authentic, earth mother personality. She is larger than life and possesses an abundant, generous and grounded nature.

She is realistic, but also sees magic everywhere. She is an earth mother who spends a great deal of time covered in soil, and is not unknown for her to walk around oblivious to the leaves and twigs in her hair.

She adores creating a warm and inviting home where all are welcome. Cooking, cleaning and gardening  – these are things she loves, and she enjoys them all the more because of her tactile and sensual nature. She is a woman who loves nothing more than using her hands to touch, connect and create.

The Queen Of Earth is the epitome of kindness; she will offer support, and nurture your every endeavour, while also offering wise and honest counsel.

She comes to ask if this is how you see yourself. Or have you been so focused on business undertakings and career that you have created an imbalance in your life and disconnect from your true nature? Is it time for you to enjoy the benefits of being a homebody for a while? Maybe a home cooked meal, or a weekend out in the garden is on the agenda, instead of meetings and reports.

The Queen Of Earth may also appear in your reading at times when you find yourself in need of a gentle reminder to be both nurturing and supportive of those around you. While you encourage and support others in their desire to better themselves, remember to do so without trying to change them.

In her role as wise-woman, she may be asking that you  seek out those who embody her energy. Perhaps there is a need for you to connect with a motherly role model at this time. Maybe all you need is a hug, but you may also be facing issues that her fertile mind and natural wisdom can help you with. A little motherly advice may unlock an answer and provide a solution.”

Potential Blockage: Queen Of Earth as Challenger will appear in our reading for two reasons. The first is to caution against making the home a hiding place, where you shut out those who care about you. Yes, we all need a sanctuary, but our periods of isolation should always be temporary. The Queen Of Earth seeks to remind you that you are not meant to be alone; there are people who love you and support you. Let them in.

The Queen Of Earth as Challenger may also be cautioning you against smothering those around you. There is a difference between mothering and overwhelming, or worse, disempowering someone through too much care and attention. Take a step back and allow those around you to act for themselves. In fact, encourage them to act for themselves. You might enjoy what you do for others, but there comes a time when those around you must learn to look after themselves, or at least share in the household responsibilities.”*

~ By Ravynne Phelan

If you are feeling scattered, distracted or disconnected, you are being called back to ground and reconnect with the Earth herself. That part of you that embodies the Earth Mother. Slowing down and finding your roots again. Get outside barefoot on the Earth. Breathe the fresh air. Take the time to stop, look, smell and love each and every flower you pass. Feel the wind in your hair. Count the stars. Host a picnic with some close friends or family and make it technology free!

We are so overwhelmed with media and technology. So much chaos going on in the world, it is easy to feel like  you are drowning in it. Add responsibilities, work, paying the bills and we can create this little spiral of worry, angst and fear. The natural world is the only solution. The Mother is calling you home.

What can you do today to reconnect with Her? Can you get outside, soles of your feet on the grass and face tilted up to the sky? Can you take a walk on the beach, toes in the sand? Even just sitting in the sun for a few minutes can give you a boost of energy and vitality. Add some nice, deep slow breaths. Maybe some movement, yoga, flowing, dancing, stretching. Back against a tree, eyes closed, just Being.

Do that and reconnect. Come back to the present moment. Back to yourself.

Namaste

Barriers

Published April 27, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Barriers, from the Whispers of Healing Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Josephine Wall published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Barriers, from the Whispers of Healing Oracle Card deck, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Josephine Wall published by Blue Angel Publishing

Barriers: “You have created barriers or defense mechanisms that may be preventing emotional or mental healing. The Universe is eagerly waiting and willing to assist you with your healing, but you may not be receiving the healing you desire. Something seems to be blocking or hindering your restoration. The obstacle may be a protective measure you have put in place to keep your heart from further harm. This shield may seem necessary and logical. However, it is also preventing the healing light being sent to you from penetrating and healing your pain.

Defense mechanisms are a response to being wronged, hurt, rejected, abandoned or abused. You may have made a mental vow not to allow yourself to feel a certain type of pain again. Once the block is in place, you may find it difficult to talk about certain situations or to receive corrective information about your experience. By identifying the root cause of your defense mechanism, healing can begin. You need to be wiling to tear down the walls you have built so that healing can occur.

A woman rides high on the back of a dragon in the middle of the ocean. The shoreline is covered with jagged rocks and looks completely unapproachable. Smoke comes from the dragon’s mouth as if he might breathe fire at any moment. You have created a similar type of energy with the walls you have built around you. Remember, fear does not keep you safe. Be willing to make some changes. talk to someone about what you are harbouring so your healing process can begin. The full moon shines her light on whatever it is you are ready to release. The turbulent water shows this may not be easy for you to do. However, the same turbulent water can be cleaning and will help you to move forward. The stars in the sky are your blessings. They suggest there are many sources that will help you to become free.”*

~By Angela Hartfield

If you have been hurt in the past, which I think it is safe to say all of us have in one way or another, it can be really challenging to move forward and open yourself up to something new. We put safeguards in place; barriers to prevent us from experiencing the same pain that we once endured. What we don’t realize is that often our best intentions are actually what is holding us back. The holding on of the pain through the barriers we insist upon is what keeps us from experiencing something totally new. We believe we are protecting ourselves but in fact we are trapping ourselves in the past.

It makes sense when you try to visualize it. See yourself building walls around you after walking away from trauma. Big brick and mortar walls reaching way up into the sky, all four sides covered, all you can see is the square of light in the sky way above you. But now you realize here you are; stuck behind these walls. You can pace back and forth a bit but you are stuck. You can’t see what is in front of you so you can just relive what experiences you have in the memories of your body and mind. Your spirit tugs at you, urging you on but you are determined that you will never experience that pain again. So you stay behind your walls. Just you and your old pain to keep you company. But just beyond the wall is someone with something to offer you. Something beautiful. But you can’t see it; you are too well protected. You will not experience this pain again. They hold our their hand to you, but you can’t see it because the walls are so strong.

But the barriers feel too heavy now. They feel like they could be suffocating you. Holding you back. Holding you in the past to repeat patterns over and over again. They are doing the opposite of what they were put in place to do. You know you are not strong enough to knock them down, not yet. But you could start at the top and take a few bricks down; at least until you can see what is right in front of you.

Maybe there is someone who will help you to take them down. Maybe you have to do it all alone. But until those walls come down there is no moving forward. Until you are free you cannot really experience what is waiting for you on the other side.

Maybe it feels terrifying. Maybe it feels long overdue. Maybe you aren’t quite ready to try. Maybe the fear is just too strong and until you commit to stepping out of your comfort zone you will be held hostage.

As usual, all up to you to decide.

You could try taking a few of the bricks down, maybe once you start it won’t be as scary or hard as you think….

Namaste

The Unicorn and the Maiden

Published April 26, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
The Unicorn and The Maiden

The Unicorn and The Maiden, from the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle Card Deck, by Lucy Cavendish

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Unicorn and The Maiden, from the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle Card Deck, by Lucy Cavendish Illustrated by Selena Fenech

The Unicorn and The Maiden: “Communication with unicorn; Purification; Undercover action.”

“In this beautiful card, the sacred Unicorn and the magical faery-maiden are preparing for a mission. The maiden lives in the “world”, the real world as we say, that we inhabit day to day. There she does under cover work on behalf of all that is magical, true and soulful. Her ally, the Unicorn, is to go to the etheric places, and share her work with the creatures too long in hiding, and ask them to come forward and let themselves be known again. Together they are discussing what must be done next. The Unicorn knows this information will be safe with the maiden, and the maiden knows too that she is safe with this magical creature – but they also know that there are those who would hunt down the Unicorn for its marvelous knowledge, its magics, its alicorn with its healing properties, and the mystic ruby that lies beneath its brow, giving those who possess it the power to see into the hearts of those around them and know their true intent.

But together, they know they can do their work. They meet in the in-between places, out of sight – in your dreams, visions, meditations and pathworkings. But it is her job to take the information back, and to translate it into material form. It is in this way that purifying and detoxifying vast areas can take place. They both work for peace, and they both are able to see right into the hearts of those around them.

Among their many skills, unicorns have the ability to create peace, even when confronted by great aggression. (One stayed famed warlord Genghis Khan’s hand, turning him back from battle and choosing peaceful settlement of differences.)

Unicorns also bring about the power of the written word. They communicate the tale that needs to be told. This holds true for artists too, as the original language the Unicorn developed was pictorial, so they are behind many film projects, novels, television series and visual arts and collage, most especially. If this card has appeared to you, and you are embarking on a creative project, simply ask for the help and guidance of the Unicorn, who will fill you with inspiration and help you through any block you may be having regarding writing.

The unicorn’s horn emanates from the center of his brow, the region in which his (and our) third eye chakra are located. The third eye contains our capacity for intuition, for psychic abilities, for clairvoyance and for communion and communication between worlds. When this card shows up for you, the messages you are receiving are very likely to be reaching you through that point. We can use our intent, our energetic power, emanating from that point too, to pray over our water, to seek out peaceful solutions, and to keep precious, rare and sacred beings safe from harsh and toxic environments.

If the Unicorn and the Maiden appear to your in a reading, you are being reconnected with your magical self, with your own maiden, your own pure, wild qualities. Gentle and free, fierce and beloved – as is the magical creature, the beloved Unicorn.”*

– Lucy Cavendish

This is a magical card from one of my favourite decks. It is a message that you have raised your consciousness to new levels; your vibration is higher than it has ever been in this physical plane. You are now able to open up and connect and communicate with beings of higher dimensions of light. The elemental realm wishes to work with you; invite their magical energy into your life.

This is a card of Universal wisdom; of trusting your intuition and knowing that seeds you have carefully planted are growing vigorously into dreams. Can you see it, or are you in your own way? Be receptive to your Divine Guidance; you are on the right path and will receive special signs and messages at this time. Commit to spending some outside each and every day; releasing the distractions and drama of everyday life and using all of your senses to communicate with the natural world. Connect to the trees, the bodies of water, the plants and animals, the sun, the moon and the stars. Keep your thoughts positive and your frequency high. This is the time to embrace the magic and miracles available to all of us, if we choose to receive them.

Quiet your mind from racing with thoughts and calmly focus on your desires. Focus on what you truly wish to create, rather than the usual spiral of disappointment or fear of the reality around you. Hold the intention for the manifestation of your dreams for the Highest good of  All involved. Forget the how and leave it to the Universe to provide; focus instead on the why and the feeling of the new.

If you are struggling, ask for clear signs, symbols and messages to guide you on your way and do your part by having faith in the process. Know that you are one decision away from shifting into something new. Release any fear, anger, resentment or doubt and move forward into the magic now. You are invited to work with the powerful energies of the elemental realm.

Namaste

Fated Meeting

Published April 25, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Fated Meeting, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, artwork by Cheri Polk

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Fated Meeting, from The Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, artwork by Cheri Polk

Fated Meeting: “A clock tower stands with its hands pointing to just a few minutes before 12:00. A man and a woman approach each other, coming to meet at the time that was predetermined by their Higher Selves, who are shown above them, translucent and shining.

With this card you are coming to a very important relationship in your life. Either it is entirely new, or an existing relationship is being lifted to a much higher experience. Karma from past lives may have brought you together, so it is important for both of you to stay alert. Keep your individual and collective growth a priority, and act with deference and compassion to yourselves and each other. If you both honour your karmic course, this could be one of the highest relationships you can know.

This card can also show a fated meeting with another about a work situation, a creative project, or an important purpose that you hold. This too, is likely karmic. Perhaps it is a past life publisher, a spiritual teacher, a brother or a sister. Whoever this is, it is a powerful and promising relationship. So get ready. It is almost time!”

As Challenger: “There is a person in your life with whom you had made plans to work on your karma together to undo past life patterns and create greater reciprocity, love and support. Unfortunately, this card reversed shows that one or both of you have fallen into old habits or some sort of denial.

You must see the relationship for exactly what it is and do not let the undercurrent of past-life feelings drive you. You have come together for a purpose, but one of you hasn’t truly woken up with an eye to the future and a commitment to grow. Your relationship with your Higher Self is the foundation of every relationship in your life. So see the truth of this situation. Your inner voice tells you that progress and even happiness with this person elude you. It may be time to look beyond this relationship. There are many other new and past life partners who can find a place on your karmic dance card.”*

~ By Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

This shift starts from the inside and manifests as love coming to you in the form of another. A union, relationship, bond, partnership. Support, truth, trust and acceptance are yours. They are yours because you have found them within you, which is the only way you can manifest them outside of you. If you are struggling, then this may be the challenge. Get out of your own way by stopping the inner dialogue which is stopping you from receiving the love that you ultimately deserve. It is standing in the wings, just waiting for the chance for the union to take place. Open to it, embrace it and receive what is yours. No matter where you are at.

You may have been all caught up in the superficial details; waiting until you felt worthy in order to step into something of this magnitude. The realization here is that you always have had and always will have exactly what you need. You are whole as you are. Perfect as you are. A bright shining light. Release anything other than this and see what magic surrounds you. Step into the beautiful dance of love instead of forcing yourself to watch from afar worried, stressed and doubtful.

You are ready and it is here. Open your heart wide, it is safe to do you. You will know.

Namaste

Transience

Published April 24, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Transience, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Transience, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell

Transience: “I am safe in the constant changes of life.”

“Change is a natural part of life, as can be seen in the cycle of the seasons: even in the cold and dark of Winter, when trees look dead, they are building up energy for a new Spring. And beneath everything, sustaining all the fluctuations in the material world, is the eternal energy of the universe.

It is just the same in your own life. The Angel Of Transience advises you to embrace change. If you insist on following a set path down to minor details, you may overlook subtle variations in the wider world. When you eventually look around you, everything may be totally different from what you expect. By letting go of rigid thinking, you free yourself to be carried by the wind of change – the breath of life itself.”

Card Symbols: “Dandelion clock, cloud, falling leaf or petal, Moon, kaleidoscope.”*

~ By Chrissie Astell

Change is in the air, for all of us. It’s how we meet it that will make all the difference. Do we meet it with an open heart and open mind, accepting that it is part of the journey and we are right where we need to be? Or do we meet it with fear, holding on to the security of the old even if we have long outgrown it? Only we can choose.

This would be a great time to do a little spring cleaning, both inside and out. Get rid of all those old cobwebs, get into the dusty corners and put some colour back into your life! Get really honest physically and mentally. What are you holding on to that no longer serves you. And are you ready, finally, to let that go? Know that you must actually decide to let go. Take some action around it to prove it to yourself and to the Universe.

Are there objects around your house that remind you of a failed relationship? Time to either boldly get rid of them, burn, toss or donate, or if you don’t have the heart for it yet them pack them up and put them away out of sight, for now. Are there outfits in your closet that represent an old version of you? Weed through them and let them go, someone else will find a good use for them.

Consider changing up your home or appearance or both! Move the furniture around. Change the flow of energy. Buy a new piece of art, a throw rug or a gallon of paint! Get a new hair do, piece of jewelry or a new outfit. Tune into your new self and be creative in expressing where you are now at.

Adaptability is key now. Embrace the change, make positive decisions and know that you are responsible for the life you are manifesting. Envision and intend your new life in full colour, vitality and new beginnings. Celebrate!

Namaste

Dee
