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

Wheel Of Fortune: “Cycles”

The Dream: “The ‘wheels within wheels’ that make up Wheel Of Fortune spin and turn just like the never-ending rhythms and cycles that make up our lives and the world we live in. A spin of The Wheel may bring unexpected luck, opportunity, and good fortune or it may present obstacles to our desires. The Wheel turns and some action from out past comes around to confront us. Is it Fate, God’s Plan, or Karma? Though there seem to be beginnings and endings, they are all part of the seamless circle of Life. Rising from the horizon are two puffs of smoke to remind us that, despite all the changes we go through, we are still nothing but the elusive spirit. The peacocks spreading their tails remind us of expansion and wealth. The gold coloured horse reminds us of the excitement of taking a risk. An eagle soars high above the wheel symbolizing the supreme feeling gained by reaching the top of the wheel. Above them all is a Sphinx with glowing eyes that see all the cycles, reoccurring patterns, and evolutions. She knows no one stays on top forever.”

The Awakening: “The turning Wheel of Fortune is a message that what goes around, comes around. You will reap what you have sown, thus you must think ahead and consider your actions whether you currently find yourself on top of the wheel or at its bottom. To avoid being ruled by Fate, take responsibility for your life and what happens to you. Take risks. Be open to a new or unexpected opportunity.”

The Enchantment: “During a new moon, light three orange altar candles and some incense, and let the air be filled with its sweet scent. Meditate on the Wheel Of Fortune, seeing its wheels spinning round and round. Chant: ‘Goddess of Fortune, please hear my plea, Goddess of Fortunes, please come to me.’ Know that by the full moon you will have good luck.”

Quick Read

Message: “You need to be as lucky as you are skilled, maybe even more so in this instance. Luck comes most often when opportunity, preparation and skill meet. Study the various arts and sciences devoted to cycles and timing.”

Outcome: “You will reap what you have sown. If you have prepared well and behaved honorably, this is a time of success. Knowledge of cycles increases your responsibilities. Luck is the meeting of opportunity, preparation, and skill.”*

~ By Amy Zerner and Monte Farber

This is an interesting explanation of Karma and of our shaping of our own reality: “Luck comes most often when opportunity, preparation and skill meet.” It puts our fate into our own hands, putting our Karmic debt into our realm of responsibility. This tells us that the seeds that we carefully plant and cultivate, or carelessly toss away and neglect all lead us to our situations both present and future. The past is the past and can no longer be altered, but it can be acknowledged and learned from. The present moment is where the greatest powers of manifestation lies. The future is the harvest of our intention, focus, emotion and action.

What seeds are you planting today with your thoughts, feelings, and actions? What can you do tomorrow for the new moon to solidify your desires. How can you create your own luck; using mindful preparation, your unique skill set and your commitment to self-belief?

There is the gift of opportunity here and it is yours. Gold, expansion, wealth, all yours. Plant your seeds now and know that they will sprout and grow in the time before the next full moon.

Namaste

The Mapmaker Of Destiny

The Mapmaker Of Destiny: “Authentic Purpose ~ Inspiration ~ Free Will.”

The Mapmaker Of Destiny Ally/Challenger: “When the The Mapmaker Of Destiny appears, it is a sign that you are being given an opportunity to transform Fate into Destiny. At birth, each human being is given a unique map with myriad paths that intersect with one another. Your Map Of Destiny shows all the places you are meant to visit, places where you will be challenged to evolve into the highest aspects of the Self.

Remember that you are a spark of the Divine come to Earth to experience Itself in human form. As such, your path is unique. It is also somewhat preordained, and Fate represents the events in your life that were meant to happen and that you can’t change. Fate is transformed into Destiny according to how you respond to your circumstances. Destiny offers you the ability to make great opportunities out of fated experience, so free will and choice are possible at certain points on your map.

Now is one of those times. You are faced with a relationship or circumstance brought to you by Fate. How you respond will lead you into your perfect Destiny. You Ally may assume the form of a soul mate come to heal your heart and be your companion. Perhaps your Challenger makes you face the things within you that must change in order for you to express your highest good. Maybe Fate brings you an Ally in the form of a wonderful new project… or a Challenger in the form of a failed business.

No matter which form the may take, all are perfect expressions of Fate inviting you into your Destiny. Pay attention as your map unfolds now. And remember that Fate makes the map, but Destiny is determined by the manner in which you engage your journey.”*

-Colette Baron-Reid

What will you do with what you are being handed right now? Are you up for a change, or are you happy with the direction you are headed. This is your chance to take the reins of your own life, and create the reality you desire. This is a bold step forward as we when we take charge we must also take full responsibility. That means no more victim mentality. That means finding clarity and focus and trusting in yourself to take decisive action in the direction your heart is pulling you. It also means staying true to yourself, being bold and courageous and stepping into your power. With grace and ease.

Look at the card and see how much support and guidance is available to you now. See the faeries, one masquerading as a dragonfly. See the white feathers; signs of angels and guides close by. See the tools, there for the sharing; take what you need when you need it and return it back to the Universe when you are done, knowing that whatever you need will always be at your fingertips when you need it. Send a blessing of gratitude to your faeries, angels and guides in advance for supporting you during this exciting time, whether it shows up as Challenger or Ally, you have everything that you need to proceed fearlessly.

Breathe.

The Norns

Published September 4, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Norns, from the Viking Oracle, by Stacey Demarco, Artwork by Jimmy Manton

The Norns: “While there may be things that are fated, still, our will and energy can alter them. We all receive gifts from the divine at birth, which we can develop or ignore. Focus and energy must be put towards a task if it is to be successful.”

“The thread of of life shimmers i the dawn.
It is woven by what was;
It is entwined with what is:
And plaited with what will be.
Each has their destiny,
But each too, their will and magic.
Nothing is certain.
All is in flow.”

Yggdrasil, the tree of life that holds the nine worlds within it’s limbs and roots, grows from the Well of Wyrd. Wyrd is the flow and living force of destiny, which nourishes the world tree and all life. Seated under the tree, ensuring the flow of Wyrd, are the three maiden Norns -Urdr (What was)Verdandi (What is), and Skuld (What will be).

These deities weave the destiny of each new baby born. They visit each child and bestow upon them their fate, which they carve in the form of runes into Yggdrasil. While it is tempting to look at the Norns as similar to the Fates in the Greek Pantheon, the Norse did not see fate as unalterable, as the Greeks did. Instead, they saw fate as malleable, subject to the will and energy of the individual and the forces of their environment. So while someone could have a destiny carved for them by the Norns, by channeling their own desires and personal energy, they could change it.

If we turn to mythos, we can see this concept at work: One day, a new baby entered the world to a jarl (Danish chief) and his queen. The Norns traveled to them. The Norns wove and weaved, the silk flying around them, and after a small while, told the mother that her son would be a great warrior, who would attain great glory.

Knowing that such men often died early, the woman begged the Norns thus: “Please, great women, my son is bound to have an early death should he be a warrior If this is his only fate, I am both happy and bereft. Whist warriors keep us safe, their families must suffer, and they must lose their lives! can you not grant him another talent? Can you not soften his destiny?”

“Ah”, said Urdr, “what we give cannot be taken back.”

“But”, said Verdandi, “We are not the only influences. We can carve his destiny upon Yggdrasil, but the waters of Wyrd and the magic of the whole can change.”

“So”, said Skuld, “The will, the wave and the whole shapes his destiny too.”

And so the Norns left the woman and traveled back to the tree of life. They carved the new sons’ destiny into its wood, noticing as always that as they did the shape of the fate began to shimmer and move. As always.”*

Destiny is calling, are you listening? Are you ready and willing to accept this mission? Ready to embark upon the next chapter of your life? Destiny is calling but it is up to you to answer this call. Up to you to decide to take action towards creating something new, to grasp the opportunity, to take a chance with your heart. To step fully onto the path of your Soul.

Free will is a wonderful gift. It allows us to choose in each moment what we wish to create; more of the same or something brand new. Free will allows us to take absolute responsibility for our lives; and free will allows us to create by default if we refuse to take the reigns.

It’s all up to you.

Do you get out of your comfort zone or stay where you are? Do you dream a little bigger and put some effort into getting where you need to be? Do you dream a whole lot bigger and have faith that you possess the resources to get you there?

Or do you assume that other forces are in control and you are merely along for the ride, for better or for worse?

All up to you.

Destiny is calling…

Namaste

The Moirae ~ Destiny

Published July 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Moirae ~ Destiny, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

The Moirae ~ Destiny

The Myth: “The Moirae are beings of destiny, also known as the Fates. Clotho, the youngest, spins the thread of life, deciding when each being is to be born. Lachesis, the middle sister, measures the thread of life, deciding how long each person or being will live. Atropos, the oldest, cuts the thread of life, deciding how each life ends. These three sister crones spin and weave our destinies.”

The Message: “If you have pulled this card, this is an incredibly magical time for you. Destiny is calling. You may feel prompted to make a leap of faith, unexpected events may occur, inspiration might strike, or you might be about to bring a project to completion. You may even find new romance, receive news about college, become involved in a new activity, or graduation will occur.

Destiny usually brings with it unexpected life-changing events, in which you will find incredible opportunity. These events can come in the guise of something difficult or painful, but do not be fooled – this is a magical time, a culmination of your life so far. It is important to move with the flow. Let your instincts guide you to where you need to be. If you experience painful events, remember to allow yourself a period of grieving, as nothing will feel clear unless you do this.

During life-changing events, it is important that you remain present, clear, and focused. Life often goes through major shifts that are beyond your comprehension and control, but it is still your life, and you control  your reactions. Only your willingness to be responsible for yourself will determine how wonderful these changes turn out to be.”*

By Carisa Mellado

Fate. Destiny. Serendipity. There’s something so romantic about it, surrendering as the universe guides us to our Soul Mates, or Twin Flames; we fall into the perfect job; we win a life-changing amount of money or are reunited with a long lost relative. The stuff movies are made of, chick flicks mostly. It’s that warm and fuzzy feeling that everything is going to be ok, if we just go with the flow and trust that it is all going to work out in the end. That there is a reason for everything, and that everything happens for a reason.

This kind of perspective has kept me sane in tough times. It connects us to the Universe through faith, let’s us take action yet give up a little of the control. It helps us to see the silver lining, which is always there. We can move forward knowing that things have a way of working out. We can move forward feeling like we are being supported, guided, loved and protected.

Of course we still need to use our inner wisdom to navigate the people and opportunities that come to us; some will be distractions and some will be the real deal. Use your heart to feel them out.

Trust what it tells you.

Namaste

The Weaver

The Weaver: “Fate, Destiny, Wyrd”

“You have inherited aspect of your family’s honour and wyrd.* The actions of your ancestors have had a ripple effect on your life, and you have worked through some of this impact with strength and nobility. There may be more work to do yet. You have free will and you also have a destiny, and the two dance together and form a pattern that is unique to you – and this is your contribution to the web of wyrd. Every action has an impact. Every choice will create results that are impossible to see now. So consider the choices before you, and choose what is for the highest good of all – what is most honourable, and beyond the personal. Ask no person to give up their personal honour to further your own ambitions. Consider the impact of your choices into the future – and consider the ancestors and what they would feel about your choices.

You shall now choose well. For you are weaving the world that was… weaving the present moment… and weaving the world that shall be. What happens to one of us, in our country, town, family, happens to us all. Every act vibrates throughout this Universe and on this great energetic web – and we are, in every moment, with every word and thought and deed, contributing to this great grid of energy.”

*Note from the Author, Lucy Cavendish: “Wyrd is an ancient magickal philosophy (wyrd is also the root of the modern word weird!) and it is both personal and global – and perhaps even beyond that, it is both personal and global – and perhaps even beyond that, it is galactic. Every single thing in the world, seen and unseen, is connected and can have influence, one on the other, in an infinite series of variations and patterns. Your choices and actions, your thoughts and words, are important. They have impact, they have meaning, and they are all a part of the creation of the world our children will inherit.”*

Although this message may appear at first to be cryptic, it is in fact very simple. We are part of a plan much greater than ourselves. Each moment, each choice, each twist and turn of our lives are intricately interwoven – with those around us, the planet herself and every Being. The ripple effect. Cause and effect. Consequences of chosen action. There are no mistakes.

This is a reminder to be very mindful of our roles in our lives and how we see ourselves. Do we see ourselves as victim? Or do we feel the need to be the aggressor? Are we able to meet that which meets us in our lives with an open heart and open mind? Are we able to be the calm in the center of the storm of chaos or do we get dragged right down into the turbulence?

It is strange and mysterious and magical, the connection between us. Imagine what would be possible if we worked to strengthen it; moment by moment; day by day. Imagine if we could use the collective consciousness as a tool for change, for healing, and for positive transformation.

How weird and wonderful to even contemplate it.

Namaste

The Dreamer: “Visions, Trance, Apparitions”

“You have pure magic flowing through you in the form of visions, dreams, and trance like moments. You are visually psychic and all the world is full of messages being relayed to you both through the medium of physical sight and through the eyes of spirit. You may even find  you are able to enter trance extremely easily. You are adept at reading patterns within Nature, you can scry without meaning to, and you look into every face knowing the story it is silently sharing. Once glance gives you information about the person or place you are with or within, and you skill is an ancient one, revered throughout the ages. 

You may find yourself gazing intently at other people’s faces, and picking up information, being able to read expressions, seeing shapes and patterns and fate within the forms tea leaves take at the bottom of the cup, reading signs in clouds, or simply knowing what will happen before you open your physical eyes, because you can see what is to happen next.

Your eyes at this time are immensely important – so on a mundane level, please be sure to have an eye check up and look after your vision. Visually, you are very sensitive, so it may be time to change your environment, your appearance, or the appearance of where you spend much of your time so that it better offers you the energy with which you wish to go forward. Trust in your visions. They come from a magical place, and when you become able to read and to understand them, you will be the Dreamer indeed. Your vision is coming to reality – keep going. Your dream will become manifest in your life, and very soon.”*

Pay very close attention to your dreams. Day dreams and nighttime dream time hold many answers for you at this time. Where do you go when your mind wanders off? What do you see? The veils are so thin now, sometimes they are not even in our way. You can see through the dimensions, only your ego will argue with you. Pay it no attention, feel into it, what does your intuition say?

The Dreamer is a part of you, no longer in the shadows, no longer tucked safely away into the night. The Dreamer holds the answers to all of life’s mysteries. The Dreamer is fearless and bold; there is no need to hold back when you are dreaming your dreams. Your big, beautiful and bountiful dreams.

Trust yourself right now, more than you ever have before. Follow the promptings of your heart. Follow that which ignites your passion. Use your intuition as your GPS; allow it to navigate your way through life.

Trust yourself, beautiful Dreamer

Namaste

The Fates

The Fates, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

The Fates, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid

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

The Fates

Essential Meanings: “Fate; Karma; Acceptance that there are things that you cannot change and knowing what those things are.”

The Oracle’s Message: “The serenity Prayer sums up the meaning of this card: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” There are things in life you will never have control over. The conditions brought on by the evolution of the collective, by nature, and by your past experiences may be fated, preordained by Spirit for a greater purpose you cannot understand in this lifetime. It may not be in your cards to understand why certain event occurred, but you can accept the mystery and work with what those events and your current circumstances have to teach you. This is the wisdom contained in the Serenity Prayer.”

Relationship Message: “Other people are who they are. You can’t change them. The challenge is to accept them as they are and not try to make them otherwise to suit you. This is a time to look at how you attempt to mold people to fit your view of how they should be so you can remain in the relationship and avoid discomfort. What if who they are, and whatever is happening between you and them in this situation, is perfect from the perspective of Spirit? Now is the time to accept what you cannot change, even if it means that you honor yourself, Spirit, and the other person by moving on. Love unconditionally – for each of us is on our own journey, and we cannot direct that of another. Be aware that this relationship is indeed fated, and you are meant to evolve into a better version of yourself as a result of it.

Prosperity Message: “Your experiences concerning prosperity and abundance are beyond your personal control right now. You are being invited to accept “what is” unreservedly. This could be a temporary situation, seemingly thrust upon you by outside forces, but there is an underlying purpose you can’t see that has been determined by the Fates. It could be a situation you are unprepared for, and you may not understand how it will benefit you in the moment. Do not fight the situation. Ride it out and see where it leads. Surrender to it, and the serenity you need to make good choices from here on out will be given to you. You will indeed flourish.

Protection Message: “It is difficult to understand why painful things happen to good people. Fate is a mystery, after all. Yet what we do with our circumstances, the way in which we respond to life’s challenges, is how we rise up to greet our destiny. Now is one of those times to be aware of your powerlessness to change certain situations and surrender to acceptance. Hang in there. Life will only get better. Act as if you believe that, for the only thing you can control right now is your attitude. When you align with the Fates, being mindful of what you can and cannot change, serenity will come to you.”*

~ Colette Baron-Reid

We can spend so much energy trying to make things the way we would like them. Maybe we consider ourselves control freaks, maybe we just like to have things “our way” or maybe we just feel that we are seeing the potential that resides within someone else… and alas, if we could only get them to live up to that great potential, the world would be such a wonderful place. But unfortunately, we are not always in control and once we admit this to ourselves, we can stop struggling, stop swimming upstream and decide.

Decide? Yes, decide whether to allow this person or situation to be as it is and continue to be a part of our lives, or decide to move on. We can only control our own actions, our own reactions, our own reality. We can’t take responsibility for the whole world and every person in it… we can only design our own.

So take a closer look at the struggle… or, better yet, back it up a little and gain some perspective! What needs to change in order to create harmony, peace, joy and love? Is it your perception? Your own attitude? Or is it a matter of separating from all this? Only you can know what is right; however, you may ask the Fates… the Universe to give you a clear sign.

Should I stay or should I go now?

What does your heart say?

Namaste
