Daily Angel Oracle Card: Faery Stallion, from the Tarot Of The Hidden Realm, by Julia Jeffrey and Barbara Moore

Faery Stallion: “Dark hair and white mane fly wildly in the wind as they cut together through the warm air. Over open fields and through the forest, they move smoothly as one, a perfect picture of graceful speed. Their elegant movement belies their efforts. Blood pulsing through their veins, the breath coursing in and out of their lungs fuels their movements. Muscles contract and release. She, overcome with joyful energy, reaches up as if to touch the sun, holding the silky blue reins only lightly.

They have run like this many times to achieve this beautiful skill and abandon. They know each others movement sand can anticipate one another’s actions, tethered together by a wisp of fabric. But more than reins and experience connect them. Their favored shade of blue, the colour of peace and healing, honours that inexplicable binding that is as invisible to onlookers as their muscles, their breath, and their blood. They are connected by spirit and unified in will. Of one mind and one purpose, they know where they are headed and know the best (which may not always be the shortest) route go get there. Getting there is not the goal. The ride is everything, and they ride so very well together.”

Divinatory Meaning: “Traditionally known as the Chariot, card VII of the Major Arcana marks a certain level of achievement and independence. In this card, the stallion, like the chariot in other cards, is a metaphor for your own power and determination. The ability to ride so apparently effortlessly bespeaks control and skill. More importantly, is also marks a confidence that comes of certainly. If cards I through VI illustrate early life lessons and preparation, the Stallion tells you that it is time to move. You have considered the options, made the plans, and finalized decisions. Now go forward. It is time to grab the brass ring. This card reminds you to head in the right direction, but more importantly, to enjoy the ride.”*

This card is infused with the freedom you have so long desired, are you ready to take the reins? Whatever has held you back in the past, fears, doubts or insecurities… challenges or perceived obstacles…. They have all been removed. The way ahead is clear. The future is bright and full of potential; the Light of Love is leading you on.

How long has it been since you allowed yourself to fly free? To sing, to dance, to play? To move with confidence and an air of abandon? It is time to let go of fears around judgement, acceptance and approval and step courageously into being your full authentic self. And there is a very important opportunity headed your way!

Should you choose to accept this mission, you will find yourself transformed in ways you never thought possible. You will realize dreams that seemed at one point mere fantasies. You will be surrounded by love and support. You will find your tribe of like-minded people. The Universe will open wide and surround you with endless possibility.

All you need to do is connect with that amazing, wild, beautiful and wise Soul that is You. No more playing small.

The rest will all fall into place with grace and ease.

And some excitement of course!

Namaste

The World

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

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

“The pulse of the World ripples is an affirmation of all the life that it holds and all the death that passes. Every leaf and tree, every creature – from the smallest insects to the great singing whales – the patterns that they weave as they are born and die and cycle onward, all tremble in unison with that single heartbeat, brought together by a mighty conductor. It is a wonderfully discordant harmony, the essence of balance, a unity of disparate parts.

She sets the crown of insight lightly on her brow. She wears the girdle of truth. She reaches within and feels the lifeline that she is connected to as well. She touches it, and it is like a tangible presence in her heart, delicate but strong. The shining web of connections stretches from her heart and out into the ether. And then she reaches out with her mind, above, so high! She feels at one with the soaring birds, knows the stretch and strain of wing muscles flexing and balancing on the wind, knows the kiss of sunlight on her outstretched leaves and branches, feels the slow erosion of water on stone over the millennia.

There is no past or present or later, for this heart beat has pulsed from the first spark of the universe, and it will beat until the end of time. It is an everlasting moment of Now, and the shimmering web of connection thrums gloriously hot in her veins. With a sudden clarity, she knows in that instant that she is blessed.”

Meaning Of The World Card: “Satisfaction and peace of mind. A successful conclusion, and the end is in sight. Achieving balance, melding and blending to bring together in unison the multiple songs of life. The World is a card of realized goals and prosperity. It is a state of completion, through not without a share of involvement and hard work to attain. When one’s goals have been reached, there is a space, a quiet breath of a moment in time when a feeling of ultimate fulfillment spills through the consciousness. It is a wondrous and precious moment, the culmination of hard work, to see your dreams come true and to know that elusively mythical treasure promised in fairy tales: the heart’s desire.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Your world is yours to create, do you see the focused intention illustrated for us? “With a sudden clarity, she knows in that instant that she is blessed.” … “It is an everlasting moment of Now…” How do these words make you feel? What seems possible? What illusions can you step away from? What toxicity can you decide, right now, to say no thank you to? What limiting beliefs can you surpass in order to create what you wish to create. Remember this is about you. It is about your heart and your destiny, no matter what anyone else thinks. Despite what anyone else thinks. It’s time to think outside the box.

We are being reminded that how we see our world is how we shape it. How we feel into our reality is how we bring it into form. There is so much fear all around us yet what we see it focused intention on what is right in front of us; living in the moment that we always have available to us… right Now.

What can you create now, by making a choice different to what has previously been made? How can you change something that needs changing, right now. How can you feel differently about what is available to you in this moment. How can you change how you feel about what you are capable of right now? Remember it is about heart centered awareness, not the pursuit of perfection.

You are in a world full of chaos and uncertainty… we all are. We all face the same choices: worry, fret, doubt and stay small… or take control of it from the inside out.

Find a way to create something better. Find your way to peace no matter what’s going on around you.

Take back your power.

Namaste

Four Of Swords

Four Of Swords, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Four Of Swords: “Her limbs are composed in the attitude of death, but this is not that final sleep. It is just a moment of rest and recovery. Her mind floats free. She is adrift in an ether of meditation. Her eyes are closed, but she sees with another kind of vision. The sigil of an eye upon the blade she holds clasped to her chest sees down into her heart and out into the world around with a clarity that she strives for in this inner contemplation and self-imposed exile.

She floats along with the lotuses, symbols of spiritual and mental purity. Lotuses grow from the slime and much of a lake, purified by the water to emerge in the sunlight as lovely flowers. They are a living metaphor for a seeker of spiritual truths. The pink lotus in particular is a symbol of enlightenment.

So, too, the swords that pillow her head as she meditates, as if to pierce through the fog of uncertainty and dissemble to reach a state of serenity. However, this is but a momentary rest. Her hands grip the sword tightly. She knows there are many ordeals to face still. She breathes deeply, imprints the fragrance of the lotuses in her mind. She is ready to draw the sword from the sheath and step back into a world of strife and conflict once this respite is through, though perhaps with a much clearer mental state this time.

The Four of Swords urges you to take a moment of respite. Close your eyes, and find that still and silent place at your core, where inner strength resides. Draw from that reserve in the times to come.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

This is a message of inner strength and resiliency. Being able to trust in yourself to get through what the Universe brings your way. Not everything is easy, there are challenges coming. But every part of the journey is necessary to get where you need to be.

We always have the choice to face obstacles with strength, courage, grace and ease. We always have the choice to refuse to succumb to the victim frame of mind. Choose your thoughts carefully for this may not be as difficult as you think. Your inner resources are prolific, use them to their full potential.

You have everything you need in order to move forward. Take a moment to center yourself, breathe, call in your team and then channel your inner warrior. Set some positive intentions and focus your energy on the best possible outcome for the Highest Good Of All.

Then move forward fearlessly, knowing that this is only a speedbump, not a mountain. You are still en route to your dreams.

Namaste

Temperance

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

Ace Of Pentacles

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

Ace Of Pentacles: “It is the possibility of prosperity, abundance, and security. It is the promise of wealth and well being, of flourishing and reaping the rewards of hard work. Energy spent will see returns. A seed has been dropped into the fertile earth. What will sprout from that seed? What strange flora will burst forth? The suit of pentacles is a promise that something will come, but it will require patience and work. What grows is what you make of it. The seed must be watered and nurtured, for nothing grows in a void, and success requires more than dreams and fantasies. Water with desire, and nurture with faith and effort and diligence.

In ancient Egypt, the lizard was representative of good fortune and divine wisdom. They are the denizens of the earth and the guardians for the pentacles: salamanders, chameleons, dragons. They lead the way from nebulous dreams and the fantastic, ever-changing realms of desires and wishes into the reality of being, of tangible actuality, and of the world.”*

~ By Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

And here we step into another fresh start. A clean slate, ready to be brought to life with our hopes, dreams, hard work and dedication. What will we create?

This is a very auspicious message to start the year with; a reminder of the abundance and prosperity available to us all. Look at how far we have come in our journey. Look at how bright the future could be, if we choose to create it as so. It is all up to us.

The predominance of green and gold speaks of the heart center and solar plexus; the meeting of the heart and the will to create the fertility of abundance. Receptivity, authenticity and integrity meets self-confidence, will, courage and personal power. Together these potent forces make for a focused, expansive and successful future.

What seeds will you plant as we step into this new beginning? What will you choose to create and how can you do it with passion, joy, self-belief and an expanded awareness of what is really possible for you? Get really clear and set an intention for this year. Take some time alone to dream through it in as much detail as possible. Pull it towards you by putting your heart and soul into it’s visualization, seeing it, feeling it, sensing it, experiencing it before it comes to pass. Knowing that it will come to pass.

What else is possible?

Namaste

Nine Of Swords

Nine Of Swords, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Nine Of Swords:

“Stormcrows herald impending dissolution
with voices cawing raucous absolution
round and round and spiraling ever near
one future sought – one future feared.”

“The funnel of the sky stretches up to the heavens, an ominous tower of storms with only a tiny glimmer of hope lighting the eye of turmoil high above. “Come to me, come with me,” the voice of a stormcrow whispers to him from nearby. “Let me guide you through.” With anxious eyes, he gazes upwards, away, oblivious to the proffered guidance through the dark night of the soul. He clutches a sheathed sword close for security, though he could easily grasp its bright blade aloft to light the way. But he is ignorant of that beacon he holds so tight, or perhaps too weak hearted and tremulous to wield it.

He suffers from anguish. The swords tattooed upon his breast are pinpricked markings of the regrets he experiences. He is tormented by inner fear, anxiety, guilt, and uncertainties in the night. He is a being of the air – his wings should carry him aloft, and the sky should be open and expansive and a world of freedom. Instead, it feels like a trap closing its jaws upon him with the howling winds of the approaching storm. And yet, if he were to just cast aside those doubts, he could be as free as the stormcrows that spiral in untroubled arcs above.

The Nine Of Swords swirls with inner turmoil. It is a moment of vulnerability, with the soul laid bare to its own demons. Guilt and fear lock muscles into immobility. Understand the source of those fears; learn what they mean and where they stem from. Know that the strength to break free of those shackles lies within one’s own heart.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

This is a message about facing your fears, releasing yourself from feeling stuck by your circumstances, and daring to create something new. Fear is holding you hostage in more ways than you realize. Emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. Vibrationally. Look at it closely. Where is the fear coming from? Is it so ingrained that you are used to it? Are you feeling like a victim of circumstance in your own life?

It’s time to create something new. Release the old scars, the regrets, the pain of the past. It is time to soar above the drama and the limited perceptions of what is possible for you. And the only way to do this is to take full responsibility for everything that has happened in your life and learn from it. See the lesson and let it all go. Focus your energy elsewhere, away from the old habits and ways of being in the world.

The birds in this card represent freedom as they soar up towards the portal of light and infinite opportunity. He is so aware of the pain of the past it is literally engraved on his chest; yet he fails to notice his own big, beautiful and powerful wings, where his guide stands trying to get his attention; to offer support. Yet he looks the other way. He thinks he needs a sword to fight his way through life, yet what he needs instead is to trust in his ability to rise above it all and create something new.

Look at your own life. Where are you being held back by the past? Are you seeing the Light being offered to you now? Where can you shed the old pain and the weight of past regrets and mistakes and find renewed strength and courage to release all the old and embrace a new lightness of Being? Trust in yourself and your own big beautiful, powerful wings to take you where you need to be. For the Highest Good Of All.

And so it is

Namaste

Three Of Pentacles

Published November 29, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Three Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Three Of Pentacles: “They work together as one, creating a human ladder and climbing upon each other’s shoulders. With their combined height, they reach upwards, they yearn towards the sky.

Into the stone wall, she inscribes her pentacles and her circles. They form a chain of overlapping arcs, like her interlinked relationships: circled sets of inclusion and combination. It is a mathematical equation of human relationships and interactions.

Each arc is inscribed with care, as if they follow a blueprint. Her fingers trail through the stone as easily as if the surface were malleable clay. The solid stone gives way under the soft flesh of her fingertips. Such is the power of their combined wills that what is ‘impossible’ suddenly becomes easy, mundane, achievable. They comprehend the power of unity when one works in conjunction with others.

The Three Of Pentacles is the embodiment of teamwork, of functioning together as a unit. It underscores competence and achieving beyond the expected. Sometimes the support of others is required to achieve a goal; not everything can be accomplished solo. Not everything needs to be accomplished alone. Reaching out to others is no failing, but working with others requires patience, planning, and compromise to adhere to standards of cooperation.”*

~ by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

As November comes to a close and the holiday season looms ahead we may find ourselves stretched too thin. Everyone has responsibilities, and when we add the extra expense, time and effort that goes into the coming month, it can be very overwhelming.

The Three Of Pentacles is a reminder that you are never alone. That you must ask for help and that when you do, that help will appear. You may ask it from family or friends, coworkers or peers, or you may ask it from your guides and the Universe itself. But you must ask. You must admit that you can do the impossible with a helping hand. You can move the mountains with a little assistance. It’s ok to admit that you need help.

There is an element of unwavering support here too; someone who comes in and really cares to help you. Someone who lifts you up, who contributes something important. Wise words, encouragement, a receptive ear, maybe even an opportunity is on offer. Decide right now that you are willing to receive it. That you will allow someone to come in and give of themselves to you. That you will welcome it with open arms.

Open your heart to the support that you need in order to move forward and build something new.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
