Daily Angel Oracle card: Goddess Athena ~ Inner Wisdom, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Goddess Athena: “You know what to do, trust your inner wisdom, and take appropriate action without delay.”

Message from Athena: “I am happy to assist you; however, you will be most thrilled when you first consult your own inner bank of knowledge. For I assure you that this situation is already resolved and that you have access to all the wisdom that the universe supplies. To access this wisdom, you must quiet your mind. Surrender all worries and other concerns to the loving and almighty power of the universe. Close your eyes, and note the thoughts and feelings that come streaming into your consciousness. If you like, you can ask me to give you a signal that you have heard your inner wisdom correctly. But have faith. I assure you that you have heard, and that the guidance brings you and your loved ones very good news indeed.”

Various meanings of this card: Stop procrastinating. Stop giving away your power to others. Trust your gut. Do not second guess yourself. You are correct. Notice recurring ideas, and take action on them.

About Athena (pronounced Uh-THEEN-uh): Athena is a powerful and wise Grecian goddess who oversees and protects those who call upon her. She is the daughter of Zeus, and her power animals are white owls and black pigeons. Although Athena is a warrior goddess, she does battle with wits instead of weapons. You can call upon her for resolving disputes, and also for protection. In addition, Athena helps with creative projects such as writing, arts and crafts.”*

Wow the synchronicity just keeps coming. More confirmation that we are the spiritual warriors of our own lives. We are constantly creating the world that we are experiencing. And we have the power to change it. That is important; the absolute knowing of that, total and complete conviction. We can change our outer world by changing what is going on inside us, how we use our energy, and where we direct our focus and intention.

This is also a card of action, of trusting in your own gut instincts and moving forward fearlessly. Feel into the situation and trust what comes back to you. You don’t need anyone else’s opinion, and you do not need to seek advice at this time. Do what you know that you need to do, and do it now. Your window of opportunity is here, don’t waste this valuable chance! Lead from the heart and you cannot go wrong.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Angel Therapy Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D: Goddess

Goddess: “Express your Divine feminine energy, embracing its magical intuition and nurturing qualities.”

This card speaks of a need for sacred female energy, which brings gifts such as intuition, nurturing, and artistic expression. Perhaps you have been spending too much time thinking or engaging in creatively void work. If so, then this card is your signal to move your body in dance; and express your intuitive, artistic and nurturing side.

You are also guided to call on benevolent female deities for help with the situation you are inquiring about. You can call upon Lakshmi, the beloved Hindu goddess who helps with abundance; Brigit, the Celtic goddess  of healing and courage; Mother Mary, the saint who guides our children; Athena, the Grecian goddess of wisdom; the Egyptian goddess Isis, who helps women juggle home and family; or any of the thousands of other trustworthy and sacred feminine deities”

Action Steps:
“Within every woman are three parts of the goddess: Maiden (inner child, at times pure and at other times adventurous or bold); Mother (nurturing qualities); and Matriarch (the teacher). Men have analogous inner qualities of the Lad, the Dad, and the Patriarch. It is important to express each of these three parts daily. This helps to balance playfulness with work and relationships. Spend time each day expressing all three characteristics, and notice how much more energized and balanced you feel.”

It is time to connect to one of the most powerful aspects of the female: the Divine Feminine. This is your inner wisdom and personal strength and power in all that is feminine. Archangel Ariel can help you strengthen this connection, call on her to help you access your inner Lioness, as she is “The Lioness of God.” Inner strength and power is synonymous with courage, confidence and self-esteem; it is not a power struggle or a misuse of power. It is believing in yourself, seeing your unique gifts and having the self-confidence to accept yourself fully as a beautiful woman, inside and out. If you have trouble seeing your inner and outer beauty, call on Archangel Jophiel to show you your inner light. Ask Jophiel to help you see the beauty in all things, starting from within.” *

Power. Personal Power. Empowerment. Courage, strength and commitment to yourself and to your dreams. Focus and intention and determination. Fueled with love, devotion and perseverance. To you. To the self. Then radiating out to something bigger. The Earth herself, the All, the greatest and Highest Good.

It is nice to have everyone around you happy, but it is not your job to bring this happiness to them. You didn’t come here as a people pleaser, you came here to create a very specific reality which will in turn benefit all. There’s a difference.

Creation and manifestation; the birth of something new. Divine Feminine warrior wisdom and strength. Releasing the struggle, stepping beyond the stereotypes of what’s expected of us. Stopping living for others and focusing our energy on ourselves and our dreams. Shrugging off the oppression, the programming. Not ignoring our duties or responsibilities, particularly to our loved ones or children, but releasing what is no longer necessary and standing true.

Goddess energy. Honouring our rhythms and cycles. Using our energy wisely. Honoring the Great Mother and all of her creations. Becoming their fierce protectors as we create a life which upholds the Cosmic Laws. This wisdom is in you already, in your bones and your blood and your DNA. Male or female, we all carry it. It’s time to tap in and bring it forth.

Namaste

Athena ~ Wisdom

Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

The Myth: “Zeus feared that his first wife, Metis, whose name means wisdom, would bear a son who would overthrow him. Zeus swallowed Metis when she was pregnant with Athena. Despite his effort, Athena sprang fully grown from Zeus’s head, dressed in her war armor and shimmering gold, holding a sharp spear.

Athena is the virgin goddess of wisdom and appears in many myths, planning strategies for wars and guiding heroes toward their goals. Her ability to see things from a higher perspective allows her to choose the best course of action.

Athena and Poseidon competed to become the patron deity of what would become Athens. Poseidon created a spring that brought water and trade, but it was salty and not good for drinking. Athena created the domesticated olive tree, which gave the Athenians food, wood, and oil. Her gift was by far the wiser and more fruitful, and she became the patron of Athens, which was named in her honour. This example illustrates how Athena used her ability to see the bigger picture to achieve her desired outcome.”

The Message: “Athena represents clarity and balance of mind. It may be time for you to stop and take stock of your life. You may need to put feelings to the side and closely review your current situation. You may need to journal, meditate, or go for a long walk in order to obtain clarity.

Athena helps heroes win battles, but only through intelligence, clarity, foresight, and wisdom. This is a time to be smart, and wisdom only comes when the heart and the mind are in balance. If you feel muddled, overwhelmed, or frustrated, it is time to stop engaging in the dramas of your exterior life so that you can see what is really occurring and discover how to move forward and defeat the monsters of your inner life. This is a time to face yourself calmly and honestly , so that the guiding light of clarity can see you through to the next phase in your life.”*

Yesterday we were granted the supreme protection of Isis. Today we are blessed with the wisdom of Athena. Now that we are protected by powerful warrior energies, it is time to dig deep and find our inner resources. It takes much more than brute strength to win a battle, we must use the power of our minds. Both Goddesses can contribute to our clarity of thought, our decisiveness and our ability to tap into our vision and strength of character, where true battles are won.

We are being asked to look at things in a new and different way. We are reminded that each of us is on our own journey and we cannot interfere with the journey of another. We can provide support and guidance, just as the Divine can offer us, but we cannot live their lives for them. Maybe we have been a bit judgmental. Maybe we have been withholding love from someone in an effort to teach them a lesson. Maybe we have been sucked into playing a game we didn’t want to play. Maybe we have convinced ourselves of something that deep down we know is simply not true.

All that must be released. The slate must be cleared so that new ideas can form. There is a new way to see this situation, but we must be open to it.

Athena is the goddess of wisdom and strategy. She is not intimidated. She is not easily influenced. She does not react with emotion, but steps back to gain perspective, considering the bigger picture. She makes a plan of action. We are being urged to do the same. Refuse to get caught up in the drama. See things from a broader perspective. Strive for the highest good instead of personal gain. Take a break from the situation until you can think clearly and move forward in the best possible way.

Namaste

Owl, from the Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco

Daily Oracle Card, from the Halloween Oracle, by Stacey Demarco: Owl, Wise seeing, Wise Action

Owl ~ Wise Seeing, Wise Action:  

“Silent winged and wise

                         All seeing creature of the night

                                                         Show me the way

                                                                         I will follow you in flight”

 

“Owls have for thousands of years been part of folklore and have been considered a special or sacred animal. With their huge forward facing eyes and otherworldly appearance, they have been seen as both wise and as harbingers of the supernatural.

There are many hundreds of species of owls and almost all are nocturnal and carnivorous. Interestingly, they all have specially designed feathers that enable them to fly silently at night, giving them an incredible hunting advantage… sort of like having a stealth-mode!

Many deities were said to be able to change into owls and perhaps the most famous was the Greek Goddess Athena, who was famous for her strategy and intelligence. To this very day, the capital city of Greece, Athens, has Athena’s owl as its symbol.

Should the hooting owl come looking for you this Halloween, it indicates the need for wise council or further information before you make a decision. Considered action is warranted. Think before you act emotionally and ensure you think strategically, not impulsively.”*

– Stacey Demarco

I LOVE Owls, I really do. I wistfully watch Harry Potter wishing my own personal owl familiar would bring me mail! Yet the owl has suffered a bad rap over the years as an omen of death, a predator or something to be feared. Owls definitely demand our respect, and they are strong and powerful birds, but they are also messengers, and when we see them, this can also be a sign; a good one!

Birds work closely with our angels and guides to bring us messages that we can bring into our lives. They are trying to guide us, to help us progress. When we see the owl, we are being asked to look at things from a larger perspective, see the mystery and magic without superstition. We are being told to have an objective point of view, taking in all the details, so that nothing can escape us. We are being told to see and have faith in the veils that separate us from the magic, and to look inside for our true Universal wisdom.

You do not have to see a live owl right in front of you for this to be your message; although that is a truly exceptional experience to witness those incredible yellow orbs literally looking into your soul. If you find that there is synchronicity in seeing owls everywhere in photos, hear their ominous hooting at night, or see them repeatedly on TV, this may also be a sign. Dreaming of owls is also a powerful sign. Owls have a deep connection to our intuition and often they are asking us to see what we are refusing to see with our own inner wisdom.

Owl is magnificent, owl is grace and strength, power and courage, magic and Universal wisdom. Owl is also believing in your own intuitive powers and making wise and rational decisions. It is about seeing the bigger picture, soaring with conviction and knowing how powerful you really are.

Namaste
