Daily Angel Oracle Card: Victory Of Maryam, from the RUMI Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild, Artwork by Rassouli
Victory Of Maryam:
“If you are longing to caress the moon,
Don’t turn away from it!
If you are not ill,
why do you crawl under a blanket to hide?
You are in a quarry of sweets.
why do you look so sour?
You live in the spring of life.
why are you withered inside?
Don’t fight against yourself!
Don’t flee from what could be your glory!
Like a fearless moth,
dive into the flame.
Why be linked to your obsessions?
Burn out in the flames,
until your heart and soul are enlightened
Get out of the old carcass
and form yourself a new body.
Why are you afraid of a fox
when you descend from lions?
Why be a lam ass
when you have the strength of stallions?
The beloved you seek will arrive
to open the door to your fortune,
for love is the key
that opens all your locks.”
“You feel you are a mortal and I know you are divine. You feel you are not ready for the task and I know that triumph is only moments away. You reach to me for protection but you are me, and the protection that you seek is already with you. We are not apart. I am living through all that you are and all that you love, all that you have lost and all that you offer to me in surrender. I am in you as your courage and magnificence, and any task I send to you is simply one of the tasks for which you were born. You are an eagle with wings ready to soar. So I push you from the cliff top that you may know yourself.”
“This oracle brings you a message of affirmation and success. Your victory is already assured. You are being led into it now. No matter if you believe it is not possible, and you are placing more faith in the appearance of distraction or obstacle than in utter success. No matter if you have forgotten for a moment that the divine lives in you, as you, and that apparent failure is only a part of the process, the place through which learning happens, serving the ultimate holy victory. Yes, your victory is inevitable.
So you are being given this reminder from the Holy Mother, Mary, also called Maryam, and the beloved divine presence of love that she serves. It is that presence that is real, it is the Holy Mother that is real, it is the Divine in you that is real, and all else swirls around you so your soul can play.
Every challenge and adventure is an opportunity for you to test your mettle and to be what you are in truth. The eagle that flies requires space and open sky. The tigress that hunts requires hunger to drive her to fulfill her being and live her nature. You need what you need to realize your divine nature as a living holy expression of the greatest love. So life is providing for you that your needs be met.
Whatever may be troubling you, or is soon to present itself, is not a situation or a circumstance meant to bring you trouble. You just need to allow yourself to become more eagle-eyed, beloved wild one. It is not what appears to be that is the source of challenge for you, not at all! It is only how you are viewing the situation. Can you allow yourself to shift perspective? Yes, you know this it truth. It is only in forgetfulness that fear creeps in; oh yes, to forget for a moment that you are divinity and to lapse into erroneous belief that the challenges are more real than the love they veil. No, the real challenge is in the attitude, not in any circumstance or situation.
Will you remember that all is divinity manifesting and nothing exists outside of it? All is perfectly designed to help you fulfill your being, live your truth, experience your power and reside in the perfection of your divine loving heart. Be curious rather than afraid. What is loving seeking to draw out of you now? It is always love in interaction with you, even if sometimes you feel like you are hauling a massive rock on your back, up the steepest of all hills to build a temple at its apex. Yet when that temple is built, overlooking the ocean, and a startling burst of golden orange sunset explodes across the water turning it gold, you will forget about climbing that hill. You will just drink in the view instead. You will forget what you were supposed to worry about. Oh don’t you hate it when that happens? You will just have to love that moment and be peaceful instead. It makes more sense to notice the sunset than to turn your back upon its glory and grumble about how heavy those rocks were! Then, in your inspiration and your forgetfulness, you will dream of another temple and the process of creation, perhaps with more lugging about of heavy rocks, and it will begin again. But then so too will another captivating sunset be granted, best witnessed in your newly built temple, that renders you speechless and spellbound.
This oracle brings you guidance and comfort. Whatever is going on in your life right now – whether it brings you joy or deepest struggle – is the Divine in you, as you, breaking through into your life. Do not hesitate to trust in it; embrace it fully and let it have its way. There is nothing there that needs to be resisted. You are safe to be wild, to be alive. Live it with love and let it unfold. The promise of success is yours, so allow yourself to be brought to it through the guiding wisdom of life, the life that serves love.
There is also a part of you that is daring to love, to live and to trust more so than before. You are even daring to quit the traumatic tendency to relive so many past hurts and aches. You no longer want to taunt yourself with failure and critique. You are less frightened of yourself, so you do not need to sabotage yourself anymore. You are learning love’s way and claiming it as your own. That is your path to victory assured.
This oracle asks you to trust in your growing optimism, to let the war be over now and put it behind you, even if it means weeping with sweet sorrow and relief for a while. The sunset is golden. The struggle is behind you. Now, just east and enjoy the golden glow as you rest with love a long, long while.”*

Don’t let your ego get in the way and spoil all the fun! As usual, it jumps right in and nitpicks everything apart with fear and doubt. Have fun with it! Walk away from the chatter and open your heart, that is the only way you will find out if what is coming is really yours.
Love is in the air, can you feel it? Do not shy away from it, it is what you have been asking for, is it not? Do not hide away your heart; open it and trust. Did you ask your angels to bring you someone special? Then keep your eyes, mind and heart open and make sure that you see them, really see them when they appear. Love comes in many forms, and when you trust that what is yours will come to you, the Universe will take care of all the details, all you have to do is show up!
Don’t buy into the what ifs.. don’t allow self-criticism to block the way. Just breathe into it. Expand your heart, your mind, your awareness. Send love to the one inside you who is so worried that you might miss out, that one who keeps you worrying about whether you will stay alone after all. Bless and release all the worry, the pain, the doubt, the fear. Only allow the love to penetrate your body, mind and spirit.
These are exciting times, and there is a brand new year right around the corner. Things are transforming in ways that you can only imagine… so go ahead and imagine the very best!
Love is imminent
