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.”*

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.
