Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dark Harlequin, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild
“Bells are ringing from deep inside.
Something that once had to hide is seeking your attention.
It wants out! It wants to be free!
As you release what was once shut away,
your discomfort shall turn to glee.”
“You are a spiritual adventurer! You are not afraid to go to the edge of what you know, of who you have believed yourself to be. Even when before you there lies the darkness of unknown worlds, of undiscovered parts of you, even when you feel uncertainty, discomfort or doubt, you are still willing (even if you are quaking in your boots) to figure out what it is all about. This fine and fierce attitude gives you a special kind of grace, the grace to discover that you are a living, wild, divinely free and empowered force to be reckoned with in this world. That discovery sets you free from fear and unleashes you upon a path of loving wild creation and joyful abandon!
So you have come to a place in you, and in your life, where you don’t know. You don’t know what’s happening. You don’t know how to work through it. You don’t know who you are (well, not all of who you are). You don’t know what you don’t know.
You are at the point of not knowing because you are growing. There will be surprises. There will be discoveries. You will feel awkward at times, like you are trying to see in the dark. You will wonder if you are supposed to be so confused, if you are supposed to feel like you are not sure who you are anymore, or even if the things that once made sense in your life are supposed to seem so fragile, as though life, once thought rock solid, actually turns out to be a house of cards. The answer, of course, is yes. Yes, it’s a royally divine mess.
Do not be afraid to let there be some inner rattling and rampaging. The Dark Harlequin card comes to you at a time when you are naturally diving into the darkness for a healing purpose. So ask the difficult questions. Do things you would not normally do. Experiment with thinking in ways you wouldn’t normally think. Be willing to let everything change for the better by first letting go of how things are now. The messier your inner world seems to be right now, the more you can expect complete and utter transformation as a new order comes into form.
Expect the unexpected, for you were born to grow into what is happening now. It is time to let the wild thing within out!”
Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and or evening for a few days or even a few months:
“The magnificent me once concealed,
In light and love is now revealed.”

We are at the halfway point of the Venus retrograde. We are also experiencing the energy of the Full Hunter Moon in the sign of Taurus, which signifies bounty, fruition and goals achieved. We have made our pilgrimage to the underworld; the darkest depths of our psyche. Today is the turning point, where we start our trek back towards the light. Life doesn’t start until we step into who we truly are. Until this point, it is still partially shrouded in illusion. In order to lift the veil, we must bring our shadows up with us right into the light, the light of the full hunter moon. We must find a way to love and accept every aspect of ourselves, and we must be able to integrate the shadow into the light, finally becoming whole.
Removing the mask takes courage and determination, for the ego has worked hard to protect us from feeling so vulnerable and transparent. Yet herein lies our greatest strength, if only we can allow it to shine forth. Yes, there may be some discomfort when the mask comes off. Yes, it may be awkward; you may feel exposed, raw. But the mask is old, it is worn out. It’s job is done now. You no longer need it.
And when you finally let your true Soul self take it’s place, you will wonder why on earth you wore the mask in the first place! Taurus has a habit of holding on to things and masks could possibly feel uncomfortable coming off, we may feel vulnerable, exposed. Find a way to feel empowered instead by your authenticity and know that this is where the true power lies.
Take off the mask and leave it in the underworld. Then take the next twenty days to come back to the highest version of your true self.
