Daily Angel Oracle Card: Gypsy, from the Love Your Inner Goddess, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Lisa Ferrante published by Blue Angel
Gypsy In A Reading: “You are encouraged to say yes to new opportunities and adventures, ideas and connections. Especially the ones that fill your heart with a sense of excitement (perhaps just before your mind begins to dwell on doubts and concerns, trying to talk you out of something before you even give it a chance). You can handle the unfamiliar better than most. Once you get your bearings, you will find a way to thrive, to enjoy what you discover and experience. Let the yearning of your soul to explore the new and exciting inspire you. The unfamiliar and the unknown hold great blessings for you. Open yourself up to new horizons.”
Spiritual Guidance: “There is wanderlust in your soul, that heart quest for new worlds and amazing experiences. You are supposed to feel this way. You have a gypsy soul that will always seek out something new and different. This is just how your life is meant to be, a divine adventure. And there is an adventure that is meant just for you: places to see, people to meet, experiences to have. You are meant to go on a journey, inside of yourself and out in the world. You are meant to explore a world bigger than the one you currently know. It is going to happen. Trust in divine timing. Be open to what life has in store for you. Maybe you are a little afraid and wonder if you are brave enough. (Quick answer – you are brave enough, and then some). Maybe you worry that you have missed your chance, but you cannot miss your destiny. It is right here waiting for you, and your gypsy soul is going to grow and fulfill even more of the purpose for which you are born.”
Sacred Ritual: “Find a place where you can stand comfortably. Say aloud, ‘Through unconditional love, I give the Universe permission to guide me on a divine adventure. I trust the gypsy in my heart, which urges me to explore the new and unfamiliar and to make the entire world my home. I am curious and open, and I trust that I will be looked after as I take my soul journey.’ Then open your arms wide, as if you are embracing your future, the adventures that are meant for you and all the beautiful blessings that life will bring to you – for now you are open, ready and willing to receive. Gently scoop up all those good things and accept them into your heart.”*

This card resonates right into the core of my being. I am a Gypsy; heart and soul. I am a free spirit, an adventurer, a wander, a mystic a yogi and a seeker of truth. Sagittarius, the sign of the centaur. Freedom, expansion, philosophy. Gypsy.
When I read those words my heart beats a little faster. My mind immediately conjures up ideas of exotic people and far flung places. Turquoise waters and secluded beaches, pristine coral reefs. Local flavours and secret places. Nature untouched.
But alas, I am a mother, in the thick of it. It will be a while before my physical body can follow my heart on the adventures it craves. For now my freedom is in the moments between. Between working and picking up kids. Between the odd Saturday to Sunday that they go to their dad’s. Between the responsibilities, the obligations and the scheduled events.
But I’m still a Gypsy. I can still anticipate adventure. I can still invite in new people from exotic places and dream about traveling to the far flung places. I can still express myself creatively and I can still conjure up excitement and adventure. I can wander through the woods or down the beach. I can choose to experience things differently; shift my perspective. And I can still say yes to the opportunities that come my way.
And so it is, being a Gypsy and all…
