Daily Angel Oracle Card: An Alien Emerges, from the Myths and Mermaids Oracle Card deck, by Jasmine Becket-Griffith with Amber Logan and Kachina Mickeletto
An Alien Emerges:
“What once was foreign
At present is dear
What used to obscure
Is transparently clear
What once felt distant
Grew to be near;
What I now love
Began with fear”
“A slim mermaid emerges from a murky lake, an inquisitive look upon her face. Is she creepy and threatening? Or just mysterious and curious?
Divination Message: Do not fear the foreign or Alien
A foreign, exotic or unusual element is entering your life. Do not allow yourself to be intimidated, scared, or avoidant. This foreign element may literally be a person from another country or culture, an opportunity overseas, or simply a situation feels alien to you at first. Use this opportunity to expand your horizons, embrace the uncommon, and experiment with new flavors, sounds, and ideas. Consider challenging yourself by learning a new language or investing the cultural traditions of another nation. Although it may feel intimidating at first, the foreign element in your life will ultimately feel very rewarding and enriching. It may result in a new passion or you may even find your life headed in a very different, but very exciting, direction.”
Antithesis: Delight in Familiarity
“It is a good time to re-engage with the comfortable and familiar. Pull out your family’s old recipes for comfort food, mend that old sweater you love but have not worn in years, and reconnect with your parents and siblings on a personal level. Relish in that which is close and ordinary, and appreciate it anew.”*

We are programmed to fear the unknown in order to protect ourselves from what may potentially be dangerous for us. Often we fear what we do not yet understand, and we push away opportunity that could be exactly what we need due to fear of the unseen future.
This card is a message that things are about to get a little shaken up, and you are being asked to sidestep the fear and meet opportunity head on. Breathe through the fear to quell the ego, and move forward fearlessly into the mystery. This means new people, new places and new opportunities. It could mean signing up for a new class all by yourself, or it could mean interviewing for a job that you don’t feel qualified for. It could mean accepting a date with someone who “isn’t your type” (probably a good idea as look where your type has got you in the past! Just sayin’) Or it could mean getting out in a big huge forest all by yourself to be one with nature.
Whatever it is, you and only you will know how your opportunity will present. Take it and see where it leads you. Use your intuition, it will keep you safe. Don’t do anything that just doesn’t feel right. This is about stepping out of your comfort zone, not putting yourself in any danger. Ask the Angels to accompany you on every step of this new journey and know that you are always safe and protected in their company.
And so it is.
