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

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

Word On Wing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Word On Wing, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Cards, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney

Word On Wing: “The soft murmurings of thousands of leaves carry the secrets of the Tree Spirits, rippling through the forest and gathering pace until they reach far beyond the land of the Dark Kingdom.

The Baroness frequently changes the enchantments of the labyrinth to protect her position and prevent captives from leaving, so the Dryads act swiftly, making arrangements and preparing a route for the Seeker to escape. The bird takes flight, carrying their message to the Seeker in familiar words they will recognize and trust. “Your destiny is in your heart; follow it into the forest tonight and destiny will find you.”

Word On A Wing Card Definition: “Word On A Wing represents news and messages coming in. Doves are usually sen as a symbol of hope, so this is generally news of a positive nature, unless it is surrounded or followed by less favorable cards. If you are using the Story Spread, check to see which card precedes it to show what the news may be concerning, or from where it originates, then the card following for an indication of what the news brings or where it may lead.

The news or message can arrive through any form or communication, such as mail, telephone, text, or even by word of mouth.”*

~ By Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw

Messages are coming through, are you listening? You will get a very clear sign today or in the next coming days; heed it. This is the answer you have asked for, and it may or may not be what you want to hear. Heed it anyway. Don’t ignore or second guess it, don’t ask for something else, admit that it was bang on and it was exactly what you needed to hear. Then act on it. Do what you need to do.

For this is actually an opportunity. It is an opportunity to trust, to act on what you know in that moment is the right thing to do, even if it scares you a little. Maybe you wanted to hold on longer, and you are being told clearly to let go. Maybe you are afraid to step in, or jump in, but now you know you must. Whatever it is, this message will have special meaning just for you, and if you act on the guidance you receive, it will have lasting benefits. Even if they are not immediately obvious. Trust.

The message may come in the daytime or at nighttime in your dreams. It may be a sign or symbol, it could be a set of repetitive numbers, an animal totem or spirit animal, birds, an article, song or television show. It could be someone sending you a direct correspondence, phone, text, email etc. It may even be that you find something out about someone that is valuable information, or that they tell you something about themselves that holds the key.

Whatever it is, you will know. Trust your intuition. Watch for signs.

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

Mercury

Published May 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Mercury, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Mercury, from the Keepers Of The Light Oracle Card deck, by Kyle Gray, artwork by Lily Moses

Mercury: “Open Communication”

“Get a weight off your chest. Speak up with love and be heard.”

About Mercury: “Mercury is the Roman god of messages and communication. In Greek mythology he is known as Hermes. He has often been depicted with wings on his feet, representing his capacity to be swift, and carrying a caduceus, the same healing wand that Archangel Raphael is known to carry. As well as overseeing communication, he oversees the planet Mercury. When this goes retrograde, which means it appears to go backwards when seen from the Earth, communication can be delayed or difficult. We can call on Mercury for help with loving, honest and open conversations, divination and any form of expressive art such as writing, poetry and journalism. He can also help us heal miscommunications that have caused distress.”

Extended Message From The Mercury Card: “Open all levels of communication now. Important messages, information and insights are being shared. You may hear from an old friend or family member, or have an opportunity to finally understand a loved one you have not had an easy time with. You may be able to clarify situations where you feel you were not heard properly or were misunderstood. Get things off your chest in a loving way, so that you can clear all the roads to love in your life. Listen too – communication is a two way street. Mercury is here now to allow you to hear clearly and to be heard.”*

~ By Kyle Gray

Ah, Mercury the planet has gone direct today, can you feel it? Communication will be made much easier, and Mercury himself can be asked for assistance in speaking your truth, clearly, directly and for the Highest Good of All. When Mercury the planet is retrograde, best made plans get messed up, we are asked to be introspective and do the deep inner work. We are not at our very best as far as presentations, big decisions, reliance on technology and getting ourselves out there at our best. When Mercury goes direct, it is like the clouds part and reveal the brightly shining sun; a weight seems to be lifted from our shoulders and we can breathe easier. Things that may have seemed challenging suddenly go smoothly and effortlessly and we find solutions to problems that may have seemed impossible before.

If you have something to say to someone, now is the time to say it! Do not hold back. Now is the time to make plans, to speak your truth, to follow your heart. Do not compromise on your dreams, honour them. Know that this is an auspicious time to move forward fearlessly. Get really clear on what it is that you want to create and take action steps to make it happen.

Namaste

Truth Be Told

Published March 30, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Truth Be Told, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Truth Be Told, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Truth Be Told: “Honesty; accepting things at face value; coming out of denial; the willingness to be transparent; clarity of communication”

The Oracle’s Message: “There is the truth, which is the essence of a thing, and then there is a truth, subjective according to the philosophy of the adherent or believer. This is not a time for debate about which truth is truer. This is a time when you are called to proclaim your truth out loud, and be willing to be transparent, honest, and open in our communication with others and with yourself. Nothing less than surrender to what is, peeling off the layers of denial that kept you tied to an illusion, will set you free. Be authentic and gloriously flawed, and Spirit will answer with miracles.”

Relationship Message: “People tell you who they are very quickly if you are willing to listen to what they say and pay attention to how they behave. This card calls you to engage in heartfelt, open conversation. It is time to see the truth about what you share with each other and tell the truth about who you are and what you need. No one can do that for you. Remember that your truth is always based in your personality and experience up to now. A higher truth will be found after you communicate honestly and see how doing so has helped you become more attuned to yourself. Do not hold back. Speak your truth… and listen.”

Prosperity Message: “Are you willing to do whatever it takes to experience the prosperous life you desire? If you want to be an artist, do you make your art a priority?  If you want to be a healer, do you set time aside to learn new things to help you serve? A writer must write, and a singer must sing. Being true to your calling is essential to your moving forward. There is another oracle message here too. It is time to have a look at the real, honest truth about your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about prosperity – about your relationship to money, to compensation, and to meaningful work. Ask yourself, ‘What is true for me?’ and you will find the key to abundance.”

Protection Message: “Where are you being dishonest with yourself or others? If you are unhappy in any area of your life, look for signs of denial. This can also pertain to others being misleading or withholding, or acting from hidden agendas. Now is the time to say no to dishonesty in all forms. Ask for the truth. Even if you do not like what you hear, acknowledging it will be key to a beautiful new future, where you no longer labor under the heavy burdens that deceit and denial impose on you. Set yourself free. Nothing less than truth is required now.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This is a message of mindfulness and authenticity. Where do you put your energy? How do you express yourself? Have you had the courage yet to take off your mask and be who you truly are in the world? It is time to step through the art of illusion and instead present ourselves as we are, pure and true.

At first we may feel very vulnerable stepping into our truth, but that also is an illusion. We have conditioned ourselves to live under false pretenses. We may have started as children, changing and morphing into what we thought the world would “like better” or to be like someone we looked up to. We may have had painful experiences and altered ourselves to avoid repeating them in the future. We have build walls up to protect our hearts and it’s time to take them down and be who we truly are.

When we step into our true authentic selves, the Universe opens up to us in new and different ways. We no longer have to waste time being something that we are not. New people will be guided to us, new doors will open and opportunity will present itself in ways we had not imagined possible. Open up to this by shedding lies and illusions.

Find your core strength within, find your balance. Find your voice. Your gifts are coming to the surface, honour them, share them. Your light is getting brighter and brighter.

Release what no longer serves you on every level, one layer at a time.

Namaste

Dee
