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 NodeĀ  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.”

Water Element ~ Sensing

Published March 9, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Water Element ~ Sensing, from the Black Moon Astrology Oracle Card deck, by Susan Sheppard, published by Blue Angel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Water Element ~ Sensing, from the Black Moon Astrology Oracle Card deck, by Susan Sheppard, published by Blue Angel

Water Element ~ Sensing: “Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.” ~ Roger Ebert

“Let matters flow.

In astrology, the element of water represents our emotions and our talents of the imagination. Water characterizes the realm of vision taking us into the quintessential depths of feeling where intuition is more appropriate than acquired wisdom and knowledge. We get ‘carried away’ on water. We have feelings of floating or being ‘adrift’ over water. when looking a the shimmering surfaces of water we cannot see to the bottom, but we know and sense what is there – deep things too obtuse and transitory to explain, fathoms of moods and insight. Water is the element of the signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. The planets of water are the Moon, Pluto and Neptune.

When the Water Element card presents itself in a spread, you can trust what you feel as the best course to follow. What you are sensing right now may not be based on any logic, it’s just that what you are sensing is correct. Right now, it is best to go with the flow and, depending upon the cars surrounding it, to trust that movement, although these changes may seem gentle and gradual.

Sometimes the Water Element card indicates a need to withdraw and fight another day. It is time to gather resources and gain strength before moving ahead. This can at times indicate trusting too soon or the passive acceptance of other people’s shortcomings when you shouldn’t accept them. You may have the tendency to want to allow things to pas you by without fighting for them, to let go of something that is rightfully yours. Water is the element of compassion and understanding. But avoid being a doormat. It is possible people or forces may take advantage of your benign and accepting nature.

This is a good time to imagine, write, paint, play or create anything, since water is the element of the imagination. It is the ability to quiet your conscious mind and allow yourself to be taken over by an idea or a dream. Water is painting, poetry, and music.

This care represents being connected to the flow of all things. It is also the ability to keep a secret or to work alone in privacy. It is probably best to now allow people or circumstances to not pin you down or hem you in. Frankly, you now have the ability to flow or drift out of any situation in the way water is able to move around obstacles very gently and easily.

Currently, you may also have the feeling of floating or being adrift. In a sense, it is a type of surrender. Maybe it is the surrender to a dream. At present, you may have little energy and want to withdraw. You are in fact doing a lot of inner processing which will take you where you want to go. There are deeper levels working and developing inside you, but the work is not seen on the outside. Expect a pause but forward motion soon.

Look inward. Don’t worry about the drama that surrounds you. Avoid the commotion, sit still, float, and trust your inner wisdom. It will not steer you wrong.”

Water Element Card In Brief: “Being led by feelings; what is felt, and what is known to be true directly through emotions, intuition; letting go or just going with the flow; extreme sensitivity; feeling shy or out of place; being quiet and introverted; subtle changes in circumstances and environment; the creative imagination; psychic dreaming; currents of emotion; confusion; fears of confronting a problem directly; feeling avoidant; mysteries and secrets; acting in a solitary or secretive way; having doubts; experiencing loneliness; walking our own path without help, timidity; feelings of guilt or shame; leaving things to chance; not pushing hard enough; giving up before time; travel near or over bodies of water, oceans, lakes or rivers; beach vacations; sea life; sea shells; overcast days; cancellations due to rain; flooding; water leaks in the home; essential oils; perfumes; candles; gentleness; feminine powers; the nourishment and nurturing of others.”

Key Ideas: “Emotional nuances; trips across the water; lack of energy; sensing what is accurate without being told.”*

~ By Susan Sheppard

There is a difference between trusting in your feelings, your gut instinct and your intuition, and getting caught up in your emotions. When we can tune in and look past the drama, the hurt feelings, the fear or the doubt, we can tap into what is really going on here. The ego gets caught up in right and wrong, who said what, and how we have been mistreated. The heart will tell us who we can trust, what feels light and high vibrational and what feels heavy or low vibrational. Where the ego may seek revenge or fear repeating old patterns, the heart can help us to move past the old pain and see something new.

This may be an emotional day for you, and that is ok. Honour your feelings, but do not get swept away with them. Maybe it is nostalgia, maybe it is pain from a rejection or finding out something hurtful. Maybe you can’t quite pinpoint the reason for the feelings, but there are present regardless. That is ok too. Sometimes we just feel isolated, lonely or anxious, especially with all the pressures of the present times. Give yourself some time to process these feelings, rather than trying to ignore them or stuff them down.

Get in the water if you can. Take a salt bath, or if you are lucky enough to be around an ocean, lake or river that you can immerse yourself in, even better. If you are able to take a little break, a vacation to somewhere by the sea, do it, you need it! ( I WISH…)

Don’t fight your emotions, just be with them. See if you can breathe through them, and imagine yourself rising above them, surfing the wave instead of being dragged down below it. Use this time for reflection and for the necessary healing.

This too shall pass

And so it is

Chiron ~ Healing

Published February 25, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Card: Chiron ~ Healing, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Chiron ~ Healing, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Chiron ~ Healing: “The wound is the place where the light enters you.” ~ Rumi

“Healing must take place before you are able to deal with your matter. Chiron is not a planet but a comet with a unique orbit that travels through the entire Zodiac over approximately fifty-one years.

‘Chiron’ is the Green word for ‘man-horse.’ In myth, Chiron the centaur, the wisest of all creatures, was the wounded healer and self-enlightened shaman. He was wounded in the flank and was almost crippled, but was rehabilitated from his wounds and sickness to pursue the healing arts through the guidance of Apollo, god of light. For astrologers, Chiron has a special purpose as a bridge between the inner and outer planets, a bridge between the animal and the human – the wisdom that lies in both life forms.

In the chart, Chiron’s place shows transition linking the mundane to the extraordinary. This heavenly body takes us on a journey through our darkness, where we pass through to the next side with strengths we did not realize we had until we pass through that black place.

Chiron has a relationship to the two astrological signs of Virgo (health and physical well-being). Chiron lords over matters of health, illness, and disease, and especially how they relate to our personal journey through life. One must see darkness before there is light. One must experience sickness before there is lasting health. Chiron also represents resurrection so has some relationship to the Christ figure as the wounded healer.

This is a card of great transformation; therefore, in many ways, you are rising from the swamps. Chrion’s energy says that once we are able to ‘heal ourselves’ we can also take this ‘gift’ (or wound) and learn how to restore others. We can mend our wounds when we embrace, process, and understand the gift of illness or dysfunction. Chiron is also an expert in alchemy, which gives us the ability to transform the mundane into the marvelous.

Chiron is a blending of the energies of Saturn and Uranus, meaning ‘just don’t throw out the old.’ There is wisdom there, but you should also embrace the bold and the new. In keeping with this, Chiron also governs quantum physics, medicine and astrology.

When this card turns up in a reading, it can indicate health matters or that issues of a medical nature may be of concern. This matter may have to do with health concerns, most especially any emotional healing that is needed. At this time, you may feel yourself visiting or having interactions with health facilities, or any place that has to do with the healing of body, mind or spirit.

This is also a time of teaching and learning, so schools my figure in this matter.

Certain sorrows of deep past may be surfacing, so be careful of repeating old patterns. These will tend to resurface unless faced directly, and if not faced, the pain will continue. This is an awakening time where you can resolve things.

The symbol for Chiron is a key, and this card says you have the key to open the right doors at your asking. To do this, you will have to work with the wounded or the downtrodden in some way. So if this is true, it is now time to save yourself and others.”

Chrion: “A bridge between the tangible and intangible; shamanism; facing yourself; journeys; the higher mind; religious ideas; heeding a spiritual call; deep listening; being bold; a journey through darkness; spiritual growth after abandonment; a difficult or painful passage; deep, inner healing; therapy; having to seek medical aid quickly and unexpectedly; medical tests; homeopathic medicine; chiropractors; issues with spine, bones and also internal organs; the need to heal or be healed; a wounding of trust; accidents; falls; someone getting hurt; feeling the pain of others; healing or teaching others via your own pain; empathy; kindness; duty; responsibility; unnecessary worry; what you do as a routine; tedium; job changes in connection with self-healing; publishing in the area of alternative health or traditional medicine, home remedies, or learning about health’s benefits through the natural world; writing; being out in nature; the colours green and brown; survival.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “The Hanged Man”

Key Ideas: “Healing; process; contemplation; medicine; illness; grief; redemption.”*

~ By Susan Sheppard

It is not surprising that this card comes now. A very tender subject. Violence and guns… the polarity between the spiritual and material world. Some who believe that humans have the right to bear arms, and others who believe that these very arms are being used as senseless killing machines. There is so much healing that must happen here. And even though it seems as though one country in particular is the one in the crux of it all, we are all One and we all suffer. There are many people around the world experiencing a level of violence and oppression that simply must change in order for us to find a way to live in harmony and peace, to heal ourselves and to sustain life on this planet.

There is so much damage and destruction; chaos, uncertainty. But there is an uprising too. There is hope. As the polarities stretch apart, the dark and the light are put in stark contrast. What is no longer working stands out boldly against the desired peace, love and harmony that many of us strive for. At the root of it all is fear. Fear of not being able to protect ourselves. Fear of each other. Deep down somewhere, fear of ourselves. Fear of losing control. Fear of not having enough. How can we fix this?

Reconnection, communication and recognition of those who are suffering to the point of becoming dangerous. Working together to prevent the anger and fear that causes someone to harm others, and listening to those who see the signs of someone coming unraveled before they can do something violent, when possible. Glorifying the heroes and not the villains, refusing them their fame and notoriety. Refusing to carry an item that is designed as a killing machine… just putting it out there…

It’s a tough topic to attempt to cover but so very valid right now. So necessary in order to create change.

Stick together and love each other. Show as much kindness as you can. Heal the fear and create space for hope and love. Do the inside work and create a more peaceful reality.

And so it is we pray together
