Daily Angel Oracle Card: Nut ~ Mystery, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hrana Janto
Nut ~ Mystery:
“Reach for me
I am always beyond your grasp
Don’t try to figure me out
for you can’t
I am the ever-present unfathomable unknown
I am the immensity of the star filled sky
I am beyond human comprehension
In the vastness of my being
I am a mystery
even to myself”
Mythology: “Nut (pronounced noot) is the Egyptian Goddess of the night sky, also known as the Great Deep, the Celestial Vault, who daily gives birth to the sun each morning, then consumes it again each night. Disapproving of the incest of Nut as she lay over her brother Geb, the Earth, Ra, the sun or high God, had them pried apart. Nut was then lifted into the sky where she remains, her body formed into an arch. Painted inside the inner lid of a sarcophagus, she mothers and protects the dead on their journey.
Meaning of this card: Nut’s twinkling vast dark vault stretches out in your life to remind you to open up to the mystery. Have you been planning every aspect of your life and left no room for mystery? Is your life wound up too tight? Are you trying to make everything safe by defining it, labeling it, knowing it all? Give way to the mystery, the unknowable. The Wise Woman knows there is much in the universe that will remain a mystery and leaves space for it in the weaving of her life. Nut says the way to nurture wholeness is for you to trust that the mystery you let in will be exactly what you need for your journey to wholeness.:*

It’s always fascinating to me to choose the same card from different decks on consecutive days. There is definitely a vital message here for us, and I wonder if the repetition is to get our attention, to reach those who missed it yesterday, to allow us to see things from a different perspective, or just because us humans don’t always listen to what we are told! I guess I will go with all of the above on this one!
We are big controllers. We love to dictate exactly how and when we want things to go down in our lives. We want to choose our perfect mate; often based on superficial attributes. We want to have the houses, the cars, and all the material stuff to prove that we are where we should be in the hierarchy of society. We get all caught up on our perceived flaws, particularly physical and allow them to hold us back. We forget that there is so much magic and mystery to the Universe as we are so entrenched in this physical plane of existence.
The angels want us to surrender to the magic and Mystery of the Universe. They want us to release our death grip on our desires of material gain and delve deeply into the mystery of the cosmos found within us all. They want us to know that things are changing for the better, that we are shifting in consciousness and we are expanding our awareness and these things are opening us up to the magic and the mystery. They want us to lead with our hearts; to fill ourselves with love.
To see the connection to All That Is.
You are the magic. You are the mystery.
