Daily Angel Oracle Card: Will, Wisdom and Mind, from the Akashic Tarot, by Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor, artwork by Cheri Polk and Emiliano Villani Published by Hay House

As Ally: “A gold crown of power and authority rests above a Celtic trinity knot. On either side of the Celtic knot are the alchemical symbols for fire and water; below is the ancient three-legged symbol of the Coat of Arms from the Isle of Man.

This card brings with it a time of enormous power, balance and expression. The first three rays, or the energies of the Divine, move within you equally; power and Will, Love and Wisdom, and Intellect or Mind. You are working intimately (even if you are not conscious of it) with the Ascended Masters who are linked to these energies.

With the participation of the Masters, you can raise your focus to a higher power and purpose. You can combine the fire of creativity with the water of receptivity in order to make your contribution to the world.

With the gold crown raised high, you are likely to find yourself in a significant position of authority and influence at this time. It is likely to be a phase of great activity, but you can handle it. With these power in play you are able to discipline yourself to bring together the meditation, creativity, rest, and action required. Take advantage of this time and use these powers well. They are nothing less than the Divine forces moving through you so that you can manifest their power in the world.”

As Challenger: “At this time, your authority may be diminished, and there might even be a loss of position. You may feel like your talents, energies, and even your higher guides are missing in some way. Fire does not burn downward, and water does not flow up. You have been spinning your wheels, over thinking things, and going around and around the same issues with little clarity about what is next. Though it still might be a time of great activity, much of that action can seem futile and repetitive.

Nonetheless, the Coat of Arms of the Isle of Man flies high, sharing its message that however you land, you will stand – even in these difficult times. So take a step back and do not try to fight the forces at hand. Get out of your head and do what you can to reconnect with your higher guides. Your outer influence may be diminished right now because your crown has been toppled. But your strength and authority have now become the foundation upon which to build anew. You can bring mental, emotional, and physical balance back to your life by working with the exquisite and powerful energies depicted in this card. The more you become aware of these forces within you, the sooner the right flow of energy will return.”

Akashic Force: “The power, heart, and mind of God dwell within you. Close your eyes, and feel these Divine forces. Your energy grows; your heart overflows with love; and your mind is as boundless as the sky. Feel yourself expand to limitlessness.”*

~ By Sharon Anne Klingler and Sandra Anne Taylor

It is completely up to us how we move into this new month. Do we accept our birthright; the Golden Crown of strength and virtue, stepping into our power with regal authority? Or do we continue the struggle, tied fast by the story we keep telling? Something new, or more of the same? Always up to us.

The Ascended masters wish to work with you. Close your eyes, take three deep breaths to clear your mind. Who comes to you effortlessly, filling your inner vision? Who do you see, hear or imagine first? Which Ascended Master? That one who comes to you, or maybe it is more than one, that is who will be working with you. It is that easy. And you cannot be wrong! If you are unfamiliar with the Ascended Masters, do some research. See who seems to stand out to you. Watch closely today for signs and synchronicity, you know those moments that seem to be stunning coincidence? Those are important moments of valuable guidance and confirmation.

Know that this is an extremely powerful time for you, use it wisely. Whatever feelings you have will be amplified into creating your reality. Fear or joy, doubt or confidence, love or judgment. Whatever you put out there will come back to you.

Namaste

Growth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Growth, from The Guardian Angel Oracle, by Chrissie Astell, artwork by Rene Milot Published by Watkins Publishing

Growth: “I grow stronger in spirit every day.”

Symbols: “Shooting star, green, leaves unfurling, child, pine trees on mountain.”

Growth: “As you progress through life, your experiences can increase and deepen your spiritual understanding of yourself and your place in the universe. Every loving experience feeds your inner being. Even suffering may play a part in your soul’s journey, by teaching wisdom and compassion.

The Angel of Growth advises you to attend to this spiritual progress. Sit quietly and ask her to show you how to balance the needs of your body and soul, so that you can find the energy to aim for the stars. If you already do a lot of therapy or other work on your inner self, the Angel counsels you to pause and process what you have learned before continuing. Know that you are progressing at the right pace for you.”*

~ By Chrissie Astell

I love this beautiful new card deck by Chrissie Astell! It is a wonderful reminder that we have a team, and are always working with our angels and guides to learn, transform and invite more love into our lives. It is also confirmation that we are never alone and have comfort and assistance available to us at all times. The deck is split into four sections, each represented by the Archangel who oversees the angels and guides in their particular domain of love, growth and expansion. The Archangels and Angels are beautifully represented and the cards are perfect to set on an altar or beside the bed to enhance the connection to working with each individual angel. I also love the idea of placing a crystal with the card to amplify the energetic connection and open the channel to higher wisdom and divine love.

The Growth card goes perfectly with our theme of late. We are awakening, expanding and growing into the next phase of our lives. Things are changing fast and this growth can be uncomfortable, scary and exhilarating all at the same time! We are encouraged to lean on the wisdom, guidance and loving support of our angels and guides at this time, knowing that we All have a team that is there for us, if we can receive what they so generously offer.

When you doubt yourself, you doubt your team’s ability to guide you on. Instead, try looking for signs, symbols and messages of confirmation and direction. Have fun with it. Open up and receive without  over analyzing or writing it off to mere coincidence. Get away from distractions and reconnect with the natural world where your connection is strengthened. And most importantly, when things feel light, go with the flow. Surrender to the divine plan and see how life opens up to you. See what opportunities arise, what doors open and what miracles come your way.

And so it is

Namaste

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose

Published March 21, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: North Node ~ Life’s Purpose, from the Black Moon Astrology Cards, by Susan Sheppard published by Blue Angel Publishing

North Node ~ Life’s Purpose: The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~ Tenzin Gyatso; The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet

“The North Node points our the best areas for us to direct our talents and our wills.

The North Node shows the area of gifts. It represents destiny. It is directly opposed to the South Node which is much more serious and restrictive. The North Node represents where we benefit from good work done in past lives and how that assists us in the here and now. The North Node is the place in the chart where life becomes easier. It acts like a karmic Jupiter where a doorway opens and suddenly you are where you need to be.

When The North Node  card presents itself, you can be assured destiny has a place in your situation. Through many life lessons, you are about to arrive at a place for your highest good. Your life is expanding and opportunities pour in swiftly, catching you quite by surprise. This card also represents past life memories and karmic connections.

You may meet people whom you have known over many past lives, perhaps in a soul family where bonds form very quickly. You are taking on a larger view of your life, which not only emphasizes your talents, but aligns your talents with like minded souls. It is a fortuitous time to begin a privately owned business or other professional venture that will bring in extra finances. Whatever this venture may be, fun, creativity and optimism, will be a part of it. At this time you will feel less limited, and your goals and plans will have far-reaching potential.

Keep in mind, the lunar nodes always bring shifts and changes. For instance, a relationship with someone who has ‘destiny’ spelled all over him or her, may suddenly walk into your life. If so, this relationship will start rapidly and be life-altering. One job may end swiftly and you will find yourself in a much more suitable position. If the energy is used correctly, it will promote greater optimism and prosperity. This means finances are also likely to increase.

This energy is now telling you that the schooling part is over for now, lessons have been learned, and you are now to act on these lessons toward a greater destiny. At this time, it is evident where you need to go and where you need to be.

As the soul’s messenger, the appearance of the North Node card in a spread indicates growing into what is called the larger unknown, meaning you are moving toward a point that promises greater fulfillment. The nodes are karmic; therefore the lessons are not easy ones. Matters will develop suddenly but there is still work to be done. Luck is on your side with an opening toward greater things. Karmic lessons learned and processed bring fulfillment and happiness.”

North Node Card in Brief: “Life’s purpose; the soul’s enlargement; balance; karmic rewards and karmic bonds; memories of previous lives; reinforcement; support; movement forward; being right; the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow; undiscovered talents; fulfillment; the things we can fall back on; being in the flow; trusting destiny; meaningful exchanges; inner balance; the foundation for future success; achievement; giving credit; considering the other side; working with others; emotional security; the path of least resistance; adaptability; inner strength; playing games; wisdom; trust; working well with youth; understanding children; optimism; a stroke of good luck; generosity; charity; wealth; the color deep red; kind authority; the exploration of ideas; expansion and growth.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “Ten of Cups”

Key Ideas: “Positive karma; rewards; the soul’s enlargement; being in the right place at the right time.”*

Receiving

Published January 12, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Receiving, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Receiving, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Autumn Skye Morrison

Receiving: “You are so loved. Your every need it witnessed and responded to by the universe. However, you sometimes forget this. You become swept up in the momentum of habitual consciousness, and you forget to take a moment to stop, breathe and be. In that moment you can receive the love of the universe that is receiving you. It will nourish you with contentment and energy.

You have not done this enough, so your soul is becoming parched and is drying out. Energy has been going out of you but there is not enough coming back in. It is time to bring something back in for you. To receive and be received. You are being offered a chance for restoration now, to feel nourished, cared for and loved. Accept it! You deserve it.

The healing process below will help you surrender any guilt or shame you feel for having needs in the first place. It will also help you to overcome any struggle that you have receiving and accepting, so that your needs can be met.

Do you know how much joy the universe gains from being able to give to you? When you delight in what you receive, when you openly embrace a gift and are so happy with it, the universe is fully received by you. In this space there is joyful communion between you and life, energy flows more freely and magic happens. When you demur saying you cannot accept, that it is too great a gift or that you are not worthy, you are impeding that flow. You are inhibiting the communion, the connection, the playful interaction between you and the universe. Enough with the false modesty and guilt! You are a radiant sun in human clothing. An exquisite life experience is your birthright. Enjoy it!

From that place of nourishment you will more effortlessly create, live and love with greater energy and thriving, pulsing passion. The earth rests each night so it can greet the sun again each morning with the spectacular living art of sunrise. Allow yourself to switch off, step away, close the laptop, switch off the phone, and just be with yourself for a little while. You will return and be more efficient and effective. Rest now, play now and work later. Forget your worries for a while. Switch off. Do something else. Let it all go and it will all flow.”

Healing Process: “Say aloud, ‘I release all false guilt and shame about having needs and all false beliefs about rest being wasteful or unnecessary. I accept healthy, productive, sacred rest and the gifts of happiness that it brings. I understand that rest and activity, balance, feed and nourish each other. There is sacred healing that happens through rest, which is very powerful. I accept and receive this now. Through unconditional love, this is now so.’

Then read this story aloud, as though you were lovingly reading it to yourself as a child. You may like to curl up comfortably on the sofa.

The great French Impressionist painter, Monet, sat in his garden on a warm afternoon. He was napping lightly on his garden bench, with the sunlight dappling gently through the straw hat resting over his face. It was soft and warm on his closed eyelids. He sighs contentedly.

A nosy neighbour poked his head over the fence, keen to know what the brilliant artist was up to now. ‘Sir, you are resting!’, the curious neighbour called out.

‘No,’ responded Monet, wriggling to get even more comfortable on his reclining garden chair, ‘I am working.’ He relaxed further as the mild breeze tickled the hair on his forearms.

Monet returned to his garden the next day. Consumed by the urge to translate his feelings onto the canvas, he painted with great energy and focus. He was inspired and the paint flowed. Again the nosy neighbour poked his head over the fence. He called out, ‘Sir, you are working.’

‘No,’ said the artist, barely pausing with his brush. ‘I am resting.’

When you are done, give yourself a hug and perhaps have a nap or a cup of tea, or do a little dance around your living room. Or paint, relax, go for a walk in the park or do a spot of window shopping. Just be, play, laugh and relax. Give yourself what you feel you need at this time. If you aren’t certain, that’s fine. Guess! And know that ht emore often you do this, the more skilled you will become in identifying and meeting your needs.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

In a world of hustle and bustle, where we wholeheartedly throw ourselves into the rat race and overdo almost every aspect of our lives, this is a powerful message. SLOW DOWN!

The most important thing about heeding the Universe when it tells you to slow down, is listening and thus avoiding it slowing things down for you… usually in less comfortable ways. It could be a head cold, or a twisted ankle. Or it could be a lay off from work, a relationship ending, or a project falling through. We see these things as anything from inconvenience to disaster, but maybe the Universe just has other plans. Maybe it is saving us from ourselves. Maybe it is rerouting us like a GPS when we go the wrong way.

We get into routine and then we just keep adding stuff, overscheduling ourselves, draining our resources. We work through burnout, through pain and emotional distress because often we have to. We don’t stop until we have to; until the choice is taken from us.

So, see this as an invitation, a prompting and a nudge. Take the advice and catch up on some much needed rest after the hectic holiday season. Yes, it’s a new year and there are goals to be set and worked towards. Yes we are all busy creating what we wish to create. But we can do this while relaxing too. Remember that much of the work is done within the sanctity of the imagination. Take the time to rest and hone your visualization; practice your intention setting; and top up your positive emotional fuel.

Set aside some time just for you to relax and enjoy a hot sea salt bath with some sea salt, crystals, essential oils and relaxing music. Meditate. Journal. Contemplate. Star gaze. Listen to the ocean. Nap. Take a little break, you not only deserve it, you need it right now.

Namaste

The Standing Stone

Published October 20, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Standing Stone, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Standing Stone, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Standing Stone: “Standing stones are symbols of authority, boundary markers, and monuments. As objects of power and balance, unyielding and strong, blending earth and spirit energies, they once formed a meeting place where people in a community could decide issues and settle individual disputes before the gods. In this circle of smaller stones, smaller stones, a community council could sit in arbitration or discern justice, hearing evidence and rendering a decision. The tradition of engraving stone obelisks and tablets with the laws of a society relates to the power of the megalith and here symbolizes concepts of Craft practices. The stone has been carved with the triquetra symbol of the Triple Goddess, the scales upon which the facts of a matter can be weighed for a balanced and impartial decision, the Craft ethic of ‘harm none’ for fairness and compassion, and the labyrinth signifying the path one must follow to reach the heart of the matter and find the truth. The path leading to this circle of stones passes through the dark forest, and yet the light of truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth shines through the trees to illuminate the stone and ensure that the truth of the matter will be revealed.

Objectivity is emphasized when this card appears in a reading. The Standing Stone shows that one has gathered information and fairly evaluated a matter, and may therefore trust the decision reached. When paired with the King of Swords, this card indicates a legal matter or court decision. The level of success in this issue may be revealed by the surrounding cards.

The shadowy forest shows that nature also has a hand in justice, for while there is law, there is also the law of returns, karma, and retribution achieved by the actions of others who carry out the decision and return the scales to balance. The small grassy clearing is sprinkled with daisies, for truth, authority, harmony, and communication. While a spider, a symbol of power, wisdom, and balance, weaves a web between two of the stone circle stones.”

Meaning Of The Card: “Objectivity, Impartiality, Trust Your Own Decision, Fairness, Balance, Truth, Virtue, Honor, Law, Prevail In A Legal Matter, Equilibrium, An Agent Working On Your Behalf, Advice, Consideration, Conscience, Impartiality, Equity, Reward, Verdict, Retribution For The Aggrieved, Harmony, Natural Law.”

As Challenger: “Misrepresentation, Bias, Intolerance, Legal Action Delayed, Complications, Gossip, False Accusation, Tedious Bureaucracy, Cloudy Perception.”

Prompt Words: “Objectivity, Fairness, Trust Your Own Decisions.”*

~ By Ann Moura

This is a message of facts and of the laws of Nature. There is no getting caught up in emotion here, of succumbing to the victim mentality or of drowning in our sorrows. There is also no room for falsity, bravado or deception. This is a message of truth.

Justice will be served. The equation is karmic, mathematical. The jury cannot be swayed with tears or false promises.

Boundaries are in place. Intimidation is not possible. Truth is critical, vital.

Make your decisions based on the Highest Good and they simply cannot go wrong. Create from a heart centered place, but not emotional. There is no need for retribution, only for fairness and equality here.

The only way out of a current dilemma is through the truth. The mind plays tricks but the heart will lead you with honour.

Namaste

The Merlin

The Merlin, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Merlin, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Merlin, from the Wisdom Of Avalon Oracle Card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Merlin: “Alchemy ~ Justice ~ Balance”

The Messengers Of Avalon

“The Merlin is the messenger of initiation and alchemy and is both the Magician and the High Priest. He is the masculine keeper of magic and has the ability to turn iron ore into gold. The Merlin says, “You have all you need to move forward. Rejoice that all the elements you require for success are, indeed, present!”

You are given notice that, when it comes to your life and its purpose, the magical aspect of the Merlin can be summoned to help you find an answer that is within you. When the Merlin appears, he tells you that justice will be done in all matters of your query, but not by any forceful action. Instead, ask yourself what you need to do to bring balance into your life. Are you working too hard, perhaps overthinking things? Do you have enough downtime?

The answers you seek are not found in obvious places. It is time to go within, through meditation and prayer, and ask the Spirit world of the Merlin’s magical influence to send you signs and omens to help you chart your course. The Merlin says that he will lend you his wisdom and magic on this leg of your journey, until you can claim it as your own.

His message is always: “be in the world, but not of it, and wear it only as a loose cloak about your shoulders.” You will never have to look outside yourself for answers when the Merlin appears. Remember, all signs and omens sent by the Merlin are but reflections of that which is within you already.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

As the planet shifts, we all shift with her. We are opening ourselves up to more love; more light. Healing. Simplicity. Possibility. Truth. Authenticity. Peace. Compassion. Trust.

We will start to see things from a Soul level, rather than just at face, or surface, value. We will connect deeply with each and every living being, seeing the eternal Divine light within. We will see all as equal, all as valuable, all as worthy. We will cherish this connection, and it will become much more important than the previous emphasis on the material.

This deep connection will create profound joy and fulfillment; spreading slowly but surely around the planet. Filling us with calm knowing; Divine Wisdom. Finally, the peace we have been seeking is found deep within, where it has always been waiting to be discovered.

Connect to The Merlin and connect to your infinite Universal Wisdom. Your own magical Soul self. Know that you too are the alchemist of your own life; able to turn iron to gold with the intention for deep profound change. When The Merlin works with you, look to the elements for signs. They are in the howling of the wind, the twinkling of the stars, the shape-shifting clouds, the crashing of the waves and the undulating of the trees. They are in the sounds in the forest, the babbling of the creek and the swoosh of the ravens wings.

Namaste

Temperance

Temperance, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Temperance, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Temperance: “She gathers herself, reaches within for the calm center, that place of balance. From her center, she feels the dragon and phoenix stirring. They twine about one another. They embrace in a sinuous twisting of scale and feather until it seems that one melts into the other. They coil around each other in a timeless battle for supremacy, choreographed in an elegant waltz of give and take, push and pull. They swirl about her in a maelstrom that assaults the senses. Like a maestro, she watches over and reins in one or the other when she senses any imbalance so that harmony is maintained.

Earth and sky, fire and water, male and female, summer’s warmth and lush growth and winter’s chill winds bearing down: these opposites flow one into the other in the cyclical and endless push of yin and yang. They are perfectly balanced against one another; in fact, they are given purpose and definition by the existence of diametric opposites.

Without water, fire rages utterly unchecked and all consuming, burning itself out eventually in a terrible conflagration. And without fire, the waters are lightless and drowning, flooding until there is only a still, silent mirror of nothing. By defining each other’s limits, they both become imbued life and become life-giving, tempered to co-exist in just the right balance, for too much of one, and the other will be smothered.”

Card Meaning: “Harmony and equilibrium, balancing of opposites, healing. Moderation of extremes, self-restraint, harnessing absolute forces, and reining the in to be wielded to a purpose. Holding opposites apart from one another denies their power of unity. By drawing them together to merge in a measured fashion, and understanding what one bestows upon the other, a beautiful synthesis can be created. Sometimes all that holds the two apart is a wall of belief. Being flexible and understanding that there is more than one way to perceive the world can go a long way towards breaking down that invisible wall.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Love can come in many forms and if we are going to anchor the energies of the Christ Consciousness back here on Gaia, we must be able to align with and present all of the aspects of love available to us. There is openness and receptivity in love, seeing the Divine connection in each and every living being reflected back to us; showing us our own connection to it. There is acceptance; loving despite where someone is at, what they have done or are capable of. Loving despite the past or the present holds space for them to align with a higher frequency in the future, even the immediate future. Releasing judgment. Releasing fear. Embracing the polarities of our differences; bringing them together in balance.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, finally meeting as equals. Playing their individual roles and also coming together to make something alchemical, powerful and profound. The power of the dragon and the rebirth of the phoenix. With the two energies working together, anything can be co-created.

Open to possibility. Open to co-creation. Open to harmony, acceptance and to receptivity.

It is time to open yourself up to Love.

Namaste

Dee
