The Moral Of The Story Is: “Good omens. Good luck and good fortune. Bright prospects. Persevere in your goal. Believe in yourself.”

Shooting Star: “Feeling a sense of relief and optimism through the camaraderie of kindred spirits who have welcomed them into their makeshift camp, the Seeker makes their way through painted caravans to find their sleeping quarters. Under the silent witness of the golden moon, a shooting star bursts into life, scattering silver trails as if it falls from the sky. The Seeker catches a glimpse of its brief but radiant passage, feeling heartened that the omen bodes well for the future.”

Card Definition: “Shooting Star is a card of good omens and indicates bright prospects ahead. It encourages you to believe in yourself and to persevere with goals and dreams. Whilst The Dreamcatchers acts like a protective amulet, the Shooting Star is a card that foretells good fortune.

A shooting star is a meteoroid and, if it survives the impact with Earth’s atmosphere, the resulting stone is a meteorite, much revered by ancient civilizations for their magical properties as a heavenly gift. Our fascination with the stars goes back thousands of years, so they often feature in legends, perhaps best known through Greek mythology.

In the starlit sky, a shooting star stands out against the rest, so, in the right circumstances, it may also indicates fame. As one of the most positive cards in the deck, it represents good luck and good fortune.”*

Happy December… the last 31 days of 2017. We are starting off this month with a blessing of luck and good fortune…. but it all hinges on our ability to receive it. Do not step into this magical month with worries about stress, family, finances and the overburden of the holiday season. If this is how you normally see December, then it is up to you to create something different… and to step into the flow of it.

December is my month. I’m a Sagittarius. Forever optimistic and adventurous… although I often feel more than a little stagnant these days while deeply immersed in routine! However, to me, December has always had so much sparkle to it. The lights go up. People are happy, socializing and dressing up. There is a certain anticipation to the month. And I am determined to keep that going, even as a single mother. I could make it into something stressful and overwhelming. I could focus on the extra money spent, the expectations. But I refuse to think of my favourite month in this way. I ask for more than that. What else is possible? What can I create with this? I’m pretty organized too, I’ve been stashing stuff away for weeks now because I knew that I wanted to greet this month with arms, heart and mind wide open and welcome all it has to offer. And this is not due to any particular religious beliefs… Christmas is what it is to everyone, whether Christian or not, I do feel that December is a special month, the energies of the year culminating to make something magical to take us into the fast approaching new year.

Today we start this sparkly month with a positive omen which will be carried through the weekend. Good luck and good fortune. A little extra magic. Warmth, abundance and the promise of the full moon energies to amplify it all. I read the astrology, and I have to say, each new moon and full moon this year has held such powerful energy. Lessons deep and karmic. This one is in Gemini, the sign of polarities… the mind that could change on a whim. Or, if both aspects are brought together, Gemini balanced can be a most powerful creator. Which one do you choose? Which energy will you work with?

Mercury is still on our side for another day or two, then will go retrograde, which I have to say I find far less scary and annoying to me these days. It’s more about introspection, inner work and standing our ground through the storm and chaos around us. If we know what we want and we are willing to stick to our guns, Mercury cannot throw us off course and we can giggle at the little ups and downs it brings as it throws our technology for a loop, sets communication off course and forces us to be crystal clear in our focus.

Meet this month with anticipation of something new. An opportunity to move forward into the new year victorious. Know that the opportunity before you is the right one, be bold and make your move. Good fortune awaits you.

Namaste

Serendipity

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

Serendipity ~ Essential Meanings: “Opportunity allied with readiness; the awareness of synchronicity; luck and good fortune appearing as signs and symbols; a magical alignment of events.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have stepped into alignment with the greater good, where your dreams and the collective dream resonate in exquisite harmony. Now is the time for luck and preparation to meet and create miracles that you could never have planned all by yourself. Keep in mind that you are a channel for providence right now, as a higher energy uses you as a force on behalf of the whole world. Your fortune becomes everyone’s fortune. Everything you bring into being now will leave a wondrous legacy for others in the future. Your service to the world is being supported at this time. Expect the unexpected. And smile, for Spirit loves you so very much.”

Relationship Message: “Spirit has a plan, and that plan is to place you in front of the right person at the right time. You have met or are about to meet someone vitally important to your journey, someone Spirit wants to bring into your life. Only Divine forces can plan this meeting – it is out of your hands. Pay attention to the signs Spirit presents.”

Prosperity Message: “You are in the right place at the right time. Be grateful, for the stars are aligned in your favor and fortune is smiling on you. Victory and success are yours. The choices you have made in the past have prepared you for the opportunities now before you. This is your lucky moment. The timing is perfect.”

Protection Message: “Perhaps you felt almost certain that serendipitous events were meant to lead to something better. It was supposed to be the perfect business, or that person you gave your heart to was supposed to be “the one” – yet it all fell apart! Consider this: Sometimes synchronicity and serendipity come together to lead you directly into difficulties in order to deliver an important lesson you need to learn before you hit the jackpot. Do not get caught up in the drama of disappointment. There really is a silver lining in this cloud. Spirit always knows what you need and is guiding you to where you are mean to go. Pay attention to the signs presented to you.”*

All the hard work is paying off… in spades! Doors are opening. Life is going to start to feel easier, lighter, freer. Do you accept and receive?

The struggle is over, thank goodness for that! Your only job now is to go with the flow and be the most authentic and true version of yourself. When you do this, you signal to the Universe that you are ready for what is truly yours, becoming the magnet to bring it forth. Manifestation is amplified, opportunity is coming knocking. Be aware, be awake!

You will meet who you need to meet. You will be exactly where you need to be. You will receive the gifts and the blessings that have been headed to you, created just for you.

Set your smile on high beam! Put a little extra skip in your step. Flirt with the Universe. Let it show you it’s best.

And so it is,

With much love and light.

Namaste

Golden Palace

Golden Palace: “There is always enough”

“The Golden Palace card represents good fortune, ambitions fulfilled, wealth, and prosperity. It may also indicate emotional fulfillment, as perhaps you are entering a time of happiness that is long overdue. The message here is that self-worth is not measured by what you have, no matter how abundant your life is. Instead, it comes from what you are, how authentically you are living your life, and how much love you are willing to share. Granted, receiving this card does indicate material gain and a furthering of tangible rewards. But things come and go, and knowing your true value leads to even greater riches now. Share the wealth.”

If This Card Comes To You As Challenger: “Let go of your tight hold on what you believe security should look like. Now is the time to conserve your energy and count your blessings. Resist the pull to become miserly. There will be enough money, love, youth, food, and shelter to go around. A mind set of fear and lack will shut off the flow of true abundance. Trust in the tides, because the flow always returns from the ebb. “Chop wood, carry water,” as the Chinese proverb says. Practice faith and the treasure will be revealed. In fact, you will find it in plain sight.”*

~ by Colette Baron-Reid

The most important thing we can do right now is find a way to be happy in spite of all that’s going on around us. We are living in chaotic times, things are being shaken, not stirred. We might feel that everything is out of control; or at least well beyond our control. It is easy to feel the weight of the world on our shoulders and yet feel helpless to do anything constructive to help it.

Yet what if the most vital thing we could do is simplify things? Find a way to love and find our joy DESPITE all that rages on around us? Despite the chaos, despite the fear, despite the doom and gloom. And if we all did this, how powerful could we be through our joy? How high could we raise our vibration through love and Light? How much healing could we facilitate? A transformation revolution!

What if the most powerful tools we have right now are our inner wisdom, our unwaivering peace and our commitment to living a life of harmony? What if all else would certainly fall into place if we could learn to shift our perception from fear and lack to abundance and trust that we will always be provided for? How much space would that free up; if we let go of all the old programming, all the old stories, and all the old self-doubts?

What if we returned to simple pleasures; a walk outside, a warm salt bath, a quiet evening at home with loved ones and no technology? What if it’s the simple things that bring us joy and the high tech things that often distract us from this or take it away in the broadcasting of fear, hate, and greed?

Find power in loving who you are and what is important to you. See the beauty in yourself and in all others, particularly those close to you, even if they challenge you. Give of your heart and Soul and find that you are rewarded in the most amazing and spectacular ways.

And watch for unexpected gifts from the Universe coming your way.

Namaste

Fortune

Fortune: “Fortuna”

“Prepare for a positive change of fortune. A run of bad luck will end. Know the difference between chance and action.  You can change your luck. Be prepared – when fortune meets opportunity, success results!

Wish for me a coin of gold.

Lady Fortuna, please give to me.

I pray to you to change my luck,

Fortune’s Favourite I will be.

 

Oh hard to woo, Fortuna smiles,

Her sweetest and most complicated one.

Our expectations not premeditated

We cannot trust that her gift will come.

Sometimes, I think human nature has changed a great deal in the last few thousand years – until I read ancient history! Historical witchcraft techniques seem just as concerned with invoking love, money, health, and luck as modern spell craft. Evidently, these aspects of life are at the heart of human desires – and no less today than in Aradia’s time.

In Stregoneria, luck is sometimes referred to as ‘fortune.’ There is even a female deity called ‘Fortuna,’ to whom we link our more modern ‘Lady Luck.’ Good fortune is a wonderful – even if temporary – gift. It brings us greater opportunities, more success in games and at work, and attracts more prosperity to us, as well. In times of hardship, we would like Fortuna to smile upon us, so there are many spells, incantations, and prayers to achieve her positive notice in any strega’s spell book.

I particularly love this spell from Leyland’s Aradia: Gospel of the Witches. (According to the account from which is comes, it involves a lemon stuck full of pins of different colours – avoid black pins!)

First, with three drops of oil I do remove

All evil influences and I humbly pray,

O beautiful Diana, until thee

That thou wilt take it all away from me,

And send it all to my worst enemy!

 

When the evil fortune

Is taken from me,

I’ll cast it out to the middle of the street:

And if thou wilt grant me this favour

O beautiful Diana,

Every bell in my house shall merrily ring!”*

~ By Stacey Demarco

Ok I will admit it, I had to think about this one for a minute… did I want to even post it? Is it the message I wanted to put out there? Well, the cards are really just a direction, chosen by the angels for what I am to write about today. And today, I want to tell you that we make our own luck. I am so much more a believer in raising our vibration to that which we wish to create than I am a believer in the fickle nature of Lady Luck. However, on that note, it is extremely important to note that I am a big believer than when we truly do believe that we have her on our side… we simply cannot lose. Powerful those thoughts and feelings we create, are they not?

So, how lucky are you feeling today? How much energy are you going to put into feeling fortunate or not so fortunate… as these are both self fulfilling prophecies! Do you put energy into a certain person, place, or thing? Such as a special piece of jewelry or a favourite item of clothing? For example, in my 20’s, I used to have a dress that I felt held an incredible amount of positive luck for me. Whenever I wore that dress, good things happened! I got free food or drinks, met up unexpectedly with old friends, attracted positive attention and generally had the best night ever whenever I chose to wear it! Eventually it disappeared along the way… (possibly nabbed by an old roomie who knew the power of the dress… alas, not so lucky after all!!)

Anyhow, my point is, if you have something lucky, get it out. Take it with you today and see what happens! Luck is on your side, whether you believe it is held within you, within Lady Fortuna herself, or within a lucky item that you possess. Today, and this weekend, you simply cannot lose. So decide that right now and go have an amazing time! It’s in the cards ;0)

Namaste

Blessed

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

Blessed ~ Essential Meanings: “Something wonderful that is unearned and unexpected; grace that is an unforeseen gift from Spirit.”

The Oracle’s message: “There are moments in life when, out of the blue, it seems that everything has been orchestrated by Divine intervention. You feel blessed in ways that are difficult to express. It is as if the Red Sea parts in front of you and events come together to banish your troubles easily and naturally. You know deep down you did not deserve any of it, and yet here you are. This is one of those times. Let awe and gratitude for all your blessings guide you now.”

Relationship message: “You are moving towards a deepening of intimacy in a unique and sacred partnership. You know that you are meant to make this connection. This union, blessed by the Divine, will bring transformation and beauty to the world. This is also a sign that, even more important, you are being called to a deeper intimacy with yourself and Spirit. With this new development, you will see evidence of grace in your life.”

Prosperity Message: “Unexpected windfalls and good fortune come your way now. You are in a phase where any difficulties or obstacles that have stymied your success seem to disappear on their own. Be ready to receive. The windows of opportunity will open wide. Accept the blessings given to you now, and do not forget to share them.

Protection Message: “Humility is called for now, as grace is an unearned gift. You did not gain this by your own desires or actions. To be who you need to be, you can no longer do what you did. In a way, you have hit rock bottom and what is required now is nothing less than total surrender. Then you will be blessed.”*

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

This is a message of Faith and Trust. Knowing that the Universe has your back, even if you have been slightly off course lately. You may feel overwhelmed, you may be a little (or quite) stressed. You may feel bogged down by responsibilities and obligations when you just really want to fly far away and be free. Maybe despite all the positive energies coming through you still feel stuck, or are having trouble releasing that which no longer serves you. Maybe you are still holding on to why you think you cannot move forward, or don’t deserve to.

Despite all that, something amazing is coming your way! Yey to that! Blessings are on their way to your right now, despite whatever may be going on around you. This is confirmation of the deep love and support that the Universe has for you. And who doesn’t love an unexpected gift!

Receptivity is key here and to be in the receptive state, use gratitude. Just keep putting it out there how thankful you are for all that you have and all that you Love. Just how lucky you are to be here, right now, reading this, existing in this crazy, amazing, magical world. During the shift of ages, into new and undiscovered realms.

The beginning of your very own faery tale…

Namaste

Salu: “Vitality, Health, Energy”

Artwork: Mirabelle, by Maxine Gadd

“You radiate strength, energy, exuberance, and life force – the kind that emanates from within, giving you an energetic force field that others respond to, but within which you dwell, radiant and well. With every day, every heartbeat, ever conscious moment – including all the wise decisions you have made on behalf of your wellbeing – you are beginning to develop  lasting strength, and your energy is potent, a force and a presence.

This card can also signify that it is time for you to truly take your wellbeing seriously – to connect deeply and respectfully with the body, to reshape it, reclaim it from all the cultural biases and all the voyeuristic judgments we are all subject to. It is time to develop support networks where your mind is valued, and healthy relationships are nurtured, developed, and sustained.

You must also do the work: sweat and discover just what you are capable of, and be sure also to change your nutrients – enhance the food you are eating, be sure to eat well, and acknowledge any unhealthy eating patterns you may have developed to self-nurture and comfort. All of this dedication and self-love will pay off in marvelous ways. you will radiate so much good, shining wellbeing that you will draw to you like-minded people who support this journey and attract more vitality, good fortune and love.”

~ By Lucy Cavendish

Salu is the Divine feminine counterpart to Barnabus. She is the compliment to his masculine energy; she is whole and she is free; as she is loving and receptive. She is asking that as we show ourselves love and acceptance, she encourages us to  nurture and care for ourselves, body, mind and spirit. What old habits can we release that no longer serve our Highest Good and true health? How can we shine our light more brightly?

Making simple choices in our lives concerning drinking more pure water, eating fresh fruits and veggies, cutting back on packaged foods, avoiding heavy meats and processed foods can make a world of difference to our wellbeing. Releasing old habits of toxic substances and refusing to put poisons, pesticides and chemicals into our bodies can be truly transformational. This can no longer be ignored; it is crucial for our ascension. We literally must elevate our density, our vibration and our Lightness of Being.

What can you change, today to make a difference to your health? It could be stress related, it could be diet, it could be that you are overdoing something. Only you know. This is personal, and it is a message just for you. Take it seriously. Release the pattern and step into a new way.

It could be breathing. It could be adding those valuable moments of silence. It could be quitting something that you know is hurting you in more ways than “just physical.”

Whatever it is, commit to making it a priority. You are worth it. You are starting this new chapter and there are just some things that cannot continue.

Bless and release.

Embrace wholeness and wellbeing.

You are your temple.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: New Life, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

New Life ~ Essential Meaning: “Birth of new ideas; growth; opportunities; a breath of fresh air; life renewing itself.”

The Oracle’s Message: “When spring awakens the world, joy and excitement can be felt all around and in your very core. Blossoms burst from trees overnight, birds return home and sing their glorious song, and nature is full of promise. Miracles beckon all of us. This is one of those times in our life when new ideas inspire you and new opportunities bring you hope for seeing your dreams come true. All is well in your world, and you have the energy you need to feel renewed. Allow your heart to fill with enthusiasm. Let your light shine, for this is a time of good fortune.”

Relationship Message: “New energy enters old relationships, and new relationships are bursting with the sweetness and vibrancy only encountered when winter gives way to spring. This is a time to connect with others and share excitement, passion, and hearts full of joy. This card is a very auspicious sign with respect to love and partnerships in all forms.”

Prosperity Message: “You have every reason to be optimistic right now, as things seem to fall into place magically. New opportunities  remind you that abundance is available to you. Delight in the bounty that begins to appear in surprising forms. Stay curious and know that your hopes and dreams are being fulfilled. It’s as if new life suddenly infuses your projects, work, and creative ideas with a kind of electricity that crackles with exciting potential. Fortune is smiling on you.

Protection Message: “You must acknowledge your inexperience and gently allow yourself to be like the delicate new bud opening. It’s okay to admit you may not know something. You are at the beginning of things and haven’t yet hit your stride. Be immersed in the newness of it all, and do not try to rush the learning process. New life has its own timetable for maturity. Be here now. Life loves you.”*

~by Colette Baron-Reid

You may feel like Sleeping Beauty, finally waking up after a long winter’s nap. The year started out with some pretty heavy energies, and it has been building for the last five months. We have had changes in every aspect of our lives: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, relationship, career, home… you name it and ,you or someone close to you, has gone though it! It’s been exhausting, painstaking, tedious, heart wrenching, exhilarating, shocking and mind boggling to say the least, and there were some days when we all wondered what we were even doing here on this physical realm with all its challenges and surprises.

We made shifts on a deep cellular level, waking up our DNA, and opened our energy centers to become One with the Universe. We have kicked all our old belief systems to the curb, releasing all that no longer serves us (and if you haven’t, get on it, there’s more to gain than to lose, trust me!!) We have honed our creative abilities, and are experiencing instant manifestation (whether we realize it yet or not, it’s here… NOW!)

These are magical times and we are lucky to be here, with a new chapter opening right in front of us. Brand new stories to be told. Brand new canvases to be painted.

The sky is the limit.

It is time to reinvent ourselves. Grab life by the …. steering wheel (or whatever you like…;o)

And get out there and be amazing!

Namaste

Dee
