Third House ~ Messages, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Third House ~ Messages, from the Black Moon Astrology Card deck, by Susan Sheppard

Third House ~ Messages: “You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“Words have power. Now is the time to get your point across. With this card, you may also get a clearer direction in the way to proceed. The Third House also represents neighborhoods and siblings.

The Third House is the area of the astrological chart that reveals how we think, speak and communicate. It signifies our need to know how we think, speak and communicate. It signifies our need to know and demonstrates how we put our concepts and thoughts into words.

You are in search of answers and in need of unlocking mysteries, but your mind is agile and you are able to grasp every detail right now. You may wish to express this mental suppleness through writing, speaking, and researching subject matter which has always intrigued you. Libraries call to you. You may suddenly wake up with an idea that could turn out to be very lucrative. You may even be toying with the idea of writing a book, starting a blog, perhaps a screenplay, or a position at a local news media outlet. There couldn’t be a better time than now.

As well as dreamy or imaginative writing and poetry, the Third House also represents dexterity, swiftness, curiosity, and figuring out the mechanisms of what makes things work. So this could mean expressing yourself about something rather technical.

The Third House, more than any other, is the house of the mind. Mercury is about giving and receiving information. When this card turns up in a reading, there is a need to uncover all that you can and relate the information to others.

Also an area of commerce and sales, when the Third House card presents itself in a reading, it can indicate a time of buying and selling, and becoming involved in retail or transactions made over the Internet.

Issues dealing with siblings may come up. There may be questions you must resolve to do with brothers or sisters. Your neighborhood may even be going through some changes.

The Third House also signifies your neighborhood, so expect events that will make a difference there. For more in-depth information, look at the surrounding cards. If the Moon card is also in the spread, it might indicate secretive actions carried out at night, perhaps meetings, or even vandalism or burglaries are possibilities. If the Mars card is present, look for noise and radical changes you may not be so happy with. With the Saturn card present, it could mean that an area may start to appear old or decrepit. Also, with the Saturn card, be careful how you put your thoughts and feelings into words. Other persons may not be as warm and receptive to your words and ideas as you hope them to be.

This card can also mean you will be talking your way into and out of tough situations. However, you will be mentally able to grapple with issues and sort them out well. Important documents and other paperwork are indicated. This isn’t your everyday type of paper shuffling; the matter will be more significant than the usual.

This card also indicates a fortunate time to start a business of your own, perhaps working in translation, creating software, or something to do with deciphering codes and messages, for example. You may also become involved in studying other languages, or anything related to and working toward a common good.

Meditation and relaxation are suggested when this card presents itself. If the Neptune or Pisces card falls in the spread along with the Third House card, your thoughts are likely inspired ones, and you could be having psychic or mediumistic communications.”

Third House Card In Brief: “Finding the right words; discussion; being of two minds; vacillation; hesitation about stepping into situations; coming to clearer choices; objectivity; short trips; air travel or taking flight; mastering something new; neighborhood events or changes; connecting to the greater mind; owning what you know to be true; being chatty or talkative; closing down emotionally and relying on common sense; turning cold on someone, or someone turning cold on you; hand to eye coordination; games, and figuring out puzzles; intelligence; inventions; numbers and letters; needing to do math; early schooling; scripts; codes; siblings; bargains; signing of contracts; sales and commercial transactions.”

Corresponding Tarot Card: “Three Of Pentacles.”

Key Ideas: “Short journeys; the neighbourhood; siblings; signing documents; communication; rumors.”*

~ Susan Sheppard

If there is something that needs to be said, now is the time to clear the air. Be concise and direct, and do not get wrapped up in emotions or drama. Focus on getting your point across in the most simple and powerful means possible. Mercury is returning direct and we are on the heels of the new moon. Things professed at this time have extra power and will manifest swiftly, so think it through first. You may even want to write down what need to be said in order to be able to see it clearly, read it back to yourself and edit where necessary. Written word is very powerful and allows us the maximum amount of time to really think about what we wish to communicate and how we wish it to be received.

Do not let fear hold you back. You are not responsible for the reactions of others, only your action here. Lead with your heart and set the intention that the end result be for the highest good of All involved. Do not use words as weapons, use them as tools. Be absolutely honest, authentic and true to yourself and use your words to heal, transform and empower.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Communication, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Communication: “Listen carefully. Speak clearly and with confidence.”

“We communicate with others using verbal and non-verbal techniques. Our body language, listening skills and attitude determine how effective we are as communicators. It takes work and effort to improve our communication skills and, with patience, they will develop over time. Miscommunication occurs when we are unable to listen to other people. Arguments, mistakes and conflict occur when we refuse to acknowledge information or negotiate.

At the heart of all relationships is communication. Hidden messages can be seen by looking at body language, facial expressions and tone of voice. Improvements in these areas help to support solid friendships and relationships. Speak with truth and integrity. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t be impatient and intolerant – this could lead to misunderstandings and actions that, once said, cannot be taken back.

Spiritual communication is high right now, take notice of these signs and symbols from the spirit world as they try to connect to you through music, feathers, butterflies, dragonflies, moths, birds, and number sequences. Be open to receiving these messages as they come from the heart, with love.

Right now, you are asked to listen with empathy and understanding to those around you. Place yourself in the other person’s shoes to gain a new perspective. There are better ways to get your message across. Be respectful and open minded when speaking to others. Lead by example and express yourself diplomatically with honesty and dignity. It is better to communicate your feelings instead of being burdened by them. When you discuss your issues you allow space for solutions to be negotiated and resolved and improve your current state of affairs.

It is important that you avoid committing to plans and projects if you do not have all the information. Ask for more details and, when appropriate, speak to professionals such as counsellors, financial advisors, solicitors or teachers. Never be afraid to ask questions; it is ok if you do not have all the answers – that is why we have professionals!”

Affirmations:”I AM able to communicate clearly and honestly, making powerful connections with others.”*

 ~ By Anna Stark

This is a message about communication; a change in the way we communicate collectively. The red of her hair symbolizes passion, possibly anger and maybe a quick temper. Hot headed! The butterfly signifies transformation; the blue is throat chakra and orange is creativity. To me, this means that whatever is coming up for you right now, there is a better way to communicate about it. Find a way to rise above the drama; step around the conflict and see things from a higher perspective. There is no need to fight, to be ‘right or wrong’ but instead to listen carefully to the whole story or point of view of another, and then ask them to hear you out.

There may be some research that needs to be done here as well. There could be a missing piece of the puzzle and it is throwing a wrench in what you think you know about the other side of the situation. Something you think you know that isn’t quite true, or something hidden that will come to light.

Be open to something new, a different way of thinking, feeling and being. Let go of the need to be right, open your mind and open your heart. Drop the struggle and the conflict and incorporate love, compassion and awareness. What is best for everyone involved at this time? How can you proceed holding the intention of a resolution for the Highest Good of All involved?

How can you take the high road… which is most often the road less traveled and model some better behaviour than what is going on around you? If we each take responsibility for not just our actions but our reactions, we can create harmony and peace around us.

And so it is

Namaste

Signals

Published December 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Signals, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Signals, from The Enchanted Tarot, by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

Signals

Quick Read Message: “You need to make your intentions perfectly clear before acting. Plans, directions, and messages of love, romance, and appreciation must be communicated and understood. Act and act now. Do not waste time.

Outcome: “You will make sure all intentions, both romantic and otherwise, are perfectly clear. Plans and directions, as well as messages of love, romance, and appreciation will be exchanged. Communications will be kept flowing.”

The Dream: “A young woman stands before a fiery rose. Eight other flowers rise heavenward like the puffs of smoke used as smoke signals. The woman has conjured up this beautiful fire by quickly rubbing her hands together until a spark sprang from between them to ignite the rose. This spark symbolizes action and information passing from one place to another, generating light and heat in the process. The fast-moving wands emanating from the smoke signals are traveling both toward the woman and toward her objective. Everything is very direct and in motion, making fast progress. Now is the time for her to indicate swift action; to send and receive messages and signals, whether they are of love or new ideas. She knows that time is of the essence because the flames of romance will not burn forever unless they are fed by mutual declarations of love.”

The Awakening: “Immediate action is called for if the things you wish for are to be attained. Initiate communication first and the answering messages will come back to you. Make that call. Act on that new idea. The time is right to respond to the demands of the moment in the most direct way possible. Messages of love and romance are highlighted. Perhaps it is time to tell someone you love them.”

The Enchantment: “Stand in an open place and light a stick of sandalwood incense. Face North and blow a little smoke in that direction. Turn East, South and West, and do the same. Visualize the signals you want to send or receive, all while you chant: “”Wish to heaven now ascend. Time of waiting at an end.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

This message kind of reminds me of the movie, “Love Actually”… which just happens to be my all time favourite Christmas movie. If you haven’t seen it, I do recommend it, although be warned, it is for an adult audience, and maybe not one easily offended! In the movie, there is a theme where someone professes their undying love to someone else, simply because it is Christmas, and at Christmas, you just have to be honest! I kind of see the same theme here.

It might be time to make your move. This is a message of action. Of doing. Of jumping in where you may have held back. Maybe it’s not about professing your undying love; maybe it is about taking a step forward in manifesting your dreams, starting something new or getting out there. But whatever it may mean to you specifically, it is a call for some extra strength and courage. Plus a little just go for it will you?!?

So what is it that you need to do, today, to get the ball rolling in the right direction? Where do you see yourself going? What do you wish to create? Where are you directing your energy?

It could be that you need closure. Maybe you profess your undying love and it all goes sideways and lets you get on with your life! Maybe you meet someone brand new who knocks your socks off. Or maybe there is something wildly creative that has been calling to you for so long…This is passion, in whatever form suits you best right now.

You know what it is cuz as you read this it keeps popping into your head. Ya, that. Do that.

You got it.

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

Hearth

Published October 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hearth, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hearth, from the Halloween Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco

Hearth: “Happiness in our hearts and homes.”

“The ancient Romans believed that every home had a heart and it was the hearth. Where the fire burned, the family gathered for sustenance, communication and protection. This concept was so important to the culture that there was a huge city hearth – the Vestal temple – where the fire of the home goddess, Vesta, burned forever without ever going out. This sacred flame was protected by the soldiers with their very lives should there be an invasion.

The place where the Goddess Vesta was honoured within every ordinary home was also the hearth, and it is where women prepared food and cooked. Some of the food was always offered back into the fire as an offering to Vesta for her blessing and protection. Often husbands were sent away on military duty for years on end and their wives at home were not just expected to keep the home and often the business running, but to wait for their husbands faithfully until their return. They prayed to Vesta to ensure their family members’ return and to keep the fires of love stoked. The saying: “Keep the home fires burning” was inspired by this practice.

Should the Hearth card appear in your divination, you are beings asked to look to your idea of what home and family is for you. Take the time to build up your ‘love’ fire and have it burning brightly. Make your relationships a priority. If there is conflict within your home and family, it is time to take concrete steps to address the issue for good. If you or a member of your family is away from home due to travel or work, know that protection is being given.”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Your family may not be your flesh and blood; they may be those who have shown their loyalty and support to you through your life experiences and given you warmth, caring and love when you needed it most. Maybe these are your relatives, and maybe not, but regardless they are your true soul family, your tribe. These are the people to surround yourself with now. This is where your true home lies; as the saying goes, home truly is where the heart is.

We are so wrapped up in our lives; our responsibilities, our obligations. Bills to pay, places to get to, so much work to do it can seem never ending. So many distractions… the theme of late. Our smart phones, computers, tv’s, games and social media running our lives. The media toying with our emotions. Presidents of countries threatening each other. People killing each other. So many things to worry about.

So what can we do about all this?

We can create a cocoon of loving support and climb right in it. We can spend time with people in person… organically they call it now. You know, when you are actually in the same room with someone, speaking to them, looking into their eyes? Phone nowhere in site ideally of course. Those who love you for you. Those who make you laugh. Those who make you feel warm and fuzzy. Those who listen when you talk and hold space for where you are at. You know who they are, and if you do not, then it is time to find them.

Here in Canada it is Thanksgiving and I am grateful to have my family, healthy and happy; those of my own flesh and those who have adopted me along the way. There is always room for more love, more family, new friends and new love.

What are you grateful for today?

Namaste

Ongkanon ~ Communication

Published August 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Ongkanon ~ Communication, from the Angel Blessings Oracle, by Kimberly Marooney

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ongkanon ~ Communication, from the Angel Blessings Oracle, by Kimberly Marooney

Ongkanon ~ Communication:

“And the angel said to the, ‘Be not afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people…’ Luke 2:10

“Ongkanon, (Ong-ka-non) is God’s messenger who offers love and guidance as you progress on your pathway Home. He often acts as an intermediary, bringing remembrance of your spiritual destiny, and his desire is to assist in your quest for truth. Call on Ongkanon often to part the veil of illusion and connect you with your Eternal Self.

The angels communicate at the soul level, without words. Their deep feelings are transmitted telepathically allowing no room for misunderstanding. Humans have developed a verbal method of interchange that is custom made for deceit, misinterpretation, and conjecture. To further complicate matters, most of us have been taught that it is not safe to say how we really feel. What are  you afraid to expose and why? Strive to reach a level of loving but brutal honesty in relationships. Going deeply into your feelings to reveal the truth invites an incredible outpouring of love and understanding.

Ongkanon can be a remarkable communication assistant if you just ask. Then stay alert for insights into your own feelings and the lessons of relationships with others. When you have feelings for others – love, anger, resentment or uneasiness – ask to understand the higher meaning for being with this person. If the relationship is troubled or karmic, seek healing and forgiveness. It is not necessary to like everyone; uncomfortable feelings could be a valuable warning that this person is not for you. If the relationship is joyous, revel in the ecstasy.

Ask Ongkanon to enhance communication with family members through love and peace. Seek ways to understand your differences, while striving to appreciate your sameness. We all just want to be loved. Write letters to the Guardian Angel of anyone who troubles you and ask for the good of all concerned.

What you are afraid to say reveals where you need to work. Are you reluctant or unable to tell others how you feel when things come up? Do you even know how you feel? Are you fearful of their response? Do you freeze up so you can’t speak? Do you explode in rage? Can you trust others to honour your feelings? Do you try to please at any personal cost? Perhaps you could say anything and they would hear with an open heart and respond in love! Relationships that are expansive, ever striving for more heartfelt true communication, are precious gifts of love. The fear, anger, lack of trust and hurt that relationships trigger mirror inner feelings. Your willingness to explore your dark side, to deeply feel what you fear the most and release in love, will open the way to better relationships with others.

Seek truth in all of your communications, from things as simple as a birthday card to the complexity of a marriage. Know what is true for you, try to feel what is true for others and find the way to understand each other.*

~ By Kimberly Marooney

There is a special emphasis right now on communication. Clear and heartfelt communication: with yourself and your loved ones, with your co-workers and friends and also with your angels, guides and galactic counterparts. Fearless connection held in the Highest Order of Being; for the Highest Good Of All. The most authentic voices of our hearts and Souls being shared with the world in peace, harmony, truth and Love.

We must learn to speak only truth; to leave all the lies, white and otherwise behind. We must commit to releasing all judgment and replacing it with unconditional Love. As we ascend, we will find that our voices are no longer the only way we communicate. As we become more and more crystalline, we will also become more telepathic; it is happening already. There really is no way to be deceptive when you are communicating telepathically as both thoughts and feelings/emotions are being read and assimilated simultaneously. Truth is the only option. As each of us commits to truth, we encourage others to do the same. One hundred honest monkeys is all we need to start!

There is another aspect here and that is being truly honest with ourselves about what it is that we wish to create. Only then can we work with the Universe to make it happen. Be clear with our intentions, be clear with our prayers. And be kind to ourselves.

There are many benevolent beings who also wish to communicate with us, angels and Archangels and guides, passed over loved ones, ancestors and ancients, the elemental realm and our cosmic guides. We are finally turning a corner and being open to the idea that we are not the center of the Universe (thank goodness for that!) We are opening up to the idea that maybe, just maybe (of course~~) there is life out there. Like how could there not be? Of course we are all entitled to our opinions, but with zillions of galazies and a seemingly infinite cosmos, it would seem very possible! Many of these beings reside in different, higher frequency dimensions than our third dimensional reality, and many of them are patiently waiting to help us to ascend to a more peaceful and loving existence.

Consider being open to that. Consider being open to communicating with these benevolent beings.

The (star)seed is planted.

Namaste

Steadfastness

Published June 6, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Steadfastness, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Steadfastness, from the Whispers Of Lord Ganesha, by Angela Hartfield, artwork by Ekaterina Golovanova

Steadfastness: “Do not waiver back and forth or be moved by the circumstances that are surrounding you at this time.”

“Be focused on your purpose and unwilling to be swayed by what other people think or by what you perceive. Ganesha heartens you by revealing that when you know your effort is not futile, you will be steadfast and immovable. This seems to be a major stumbling block in your life at this time. Perhaps your current job gives little recognition, with no real sense of accomplishment or success. You may feel unheard in your relationships. Possibly, the error lies in the fact that in your heart, you really feel your struggle is hopeless. You may recognize it on an intellectual level, but you are easily shaken when you do not see the fruit of your exertion.

Ganesha is pictured here riding the elephant to engage you in the energy of the elephant spirit. Elephants can teach you that kindness, dedication, and communication in relationships is very powerful. They remind you that it is necessary to keep relationships alive, trusting and loving, whether the relationship is with friends, family or a partner. Deeply faithful to all creatures with which they have relationships, elephants are tough when protecting others and gentle when nurturing them. The matriarch (the oldest, most experienced female leader of a herd) leads in a way that is both gentle and inclusive. Elephants are able to communicate telepathically. When you draw this card, your ability to truly listen to others is enhanced.

Do what ever is necessary to safeguard your resolve. You are receiving guidance that this is the time to dig in. Remain focused and do not get caught up in trying to create a change. The energy in your job or relationship is ever changing. Ask Ganesha to bring you the strength to work through what is happening. Stay committed and on track. Do not give up, as change will show up soon and the situation will be transformed.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

Well if nothing else, the Universe is being very clear that we must make a shift from the external world to our own internal realm. All else is illusion. All else is the smoke and mirrors of what we think of as “reality”. Yet what if most of what we consider to be reality is not reality at all?

We are little boats on a vast ocean of possibility. But sometimes we spend so much time worrying about what all the other boats are doing, we forget to see the horizon, we forget that there is so much more going on underneath that enormous ocean. We forget to watch the sun set, and the stars come out at night. We forget how magical it is for night to turn back into daytime. We forget that we are in charge of where our boat sails; that we don’t need to follow others.

Maybe the journey has been a bit rough lately. Maybe you have been so caught up you forgot that you could explore a beautiful, protected cove. Maybe it’s time to jump ship and dive down deep into the ocean of possibility. Maybe we have outgrown our little boat; we are ready for so much more.

Everything around you has been created by your previous thoughts, feelings and belief systems. That is what dictated your boat, it’s size, it’s shape, how fast or slow it is, what it is capable of. Now it is time to make a brand new boat. Sail a brand new journey. Where anything and everything is possible for you.

Get clear on what it is that you desire to create. Do not feel that you cannot communicate this to others. Stand strong in what you believe in, and create something amazing for the highest good of all, and your highest good.

And so it is

Dee
