Daily Angel Oracle Card: Four of Wands, from the Green Witch Tarot, By Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Four of Wands: “This card represents a rewarding conclusion to a career, work, or creative effort. With the harvest comes a time of rejoicing and enjoying the fruits of one’s labours. sometimes life changes come with the security of good earnings, and this may be when weddings, parties with coworkers, or family reunions are planned to help celebrate the achievement. there is a sense of orderliness and job satisfaction, with hard work completed. It is a time to bring together all those involved with the process in joyful camaraderie. This care may also suggest a romance with someone met through a work, career, or artistic endeavour in work, by promotion or new assignment. A strong career foundation has been laid, providing one with a sense of stability and opening the way for romance, marriage and family.

Blue violets, for well-being, happiness and fidelity, are under the table. A cicada, a symbol of happiness, the home, and success, walks on the table.”

Meaning Of This Card: “Celebration of work completed, status increase, vitality, prosperity, career success, efforts reward, happy home, promotion, harmony, labours end well, reaping a good harvest, security, job satisfaction, camaraderie, team work, revelry, stability from a venture, romance, enjoying the fruits of one’s labours, ready for marriage and family.”

Four of Wands as Challenger: “Minimal returns for labour, delays in completion of a project, romance fades, minor disruptions at home, disorganization, work dissatisfaction.”

Prompt Words: “Career celebration”

~ By Ann Moura

This card is so light, so uplifting. It makes me feel like smiling; like everything is going to be just fine. The abundance of the harvest, the open sharing, the air of celebration and victory. A job well done. There is so much support here too, the intimacy of eye contact; a shared smile, symbols of abiding love, of true commitment to one another. A shared labour of love.

If you don’t have this kind of love and support in your life right now, do not worry, it is coming your way. It is all part of your new beginning. Whether in an established relationship or marriage, or looking for a life partner, you are on the right track to creating the love you desire. Success is in the cards!

Your hard work is also paying off in your work, particularly a project or creation recently completed. Something that you put one hundred percent of your energy into. If you are still working on it, know that it will come to fruition very soon. This payoff is cause for celebration. It is time to commend yourself for doing such amazing work.

Take time to reap the benefits and come together with those who would celebrate your victory with you. Surround yourself with loving and supportive people who are not competing with you, but wish the highest good for you. Know that there is more to look forward to, but this is an important milestone on your life’s journey.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Knight Of Chalices, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Knight Of Chalices: “This is a card of proposals and invitations, of socializing, networking and making new contacts. There may be an artistic or romantic proposal, or simply the enjoyment of good times, perhaps with an invitation received to attend a propitious occasion. The invitation may allow for social advancement or provide a desired opportunity to make the necessary contacts for emotional fulfillment and satisfaction in life. If representative of a person, this card is someone who has something beneficial to offer. One’s enthusiasm may prompt openings and opportunities, especially through casual mingling among people who prove helpful. Relaxation and good times are indicated, as well as holiday fun with others, and opportunities. Artistic expression is given direction and finesse. There is also a possible opportunism with this card: someone being capricious with one’s emotions, vacillating and leading one on. Flattery or deception could come into play, or a person could be misleading one either for his or her gain or simple because of an inability to be emotionally consistent or make a sincere commitment. Other cards in the spread will clarity the intention.

Marigolds, flowers of well-being, affection, and relationships, make a wreath. A stork, a symbol of beginnings, devotion, and opportunities, stands by the tree.”

Divinatory Meaning of Knight Of Chalices: “Artistic Direction, Romantic Or Social Proposal, Invitation, Fun, Relaxation, Opportunity, Advancement, Emotional sensitivity, Developing Style, Love, Breakthrough.”

Knight Of Chalices As Challenger: “Insincerity, Flattery, False Friend, Deception, Opportunistic Cooperation, Conniving, Fraudulent Schemes.”

Prompt Words: “Proposals, Socializing.”*

~ By Ann Moura

There is a bit of a polarity in this message and it will be up to you how it all plays out. Will you see bright and positive opportunity when it is offered to you? Will you be able to trust your intuition and know if someone (or something) is not as they/it seem(s)? How will you decide what is best for you?

Opportunity is coming your way and you will be asked not to compromise on this one. You MUST trust your instincts and your intuition. This is not a situation where you must seek the advice of others, as only you will truly know. Does it feel right to you or does it not? If it does, move forward. If it does not, trust  yourself to let this one go in favour of something much, much better. Know that if it does not feel right, you do not need to justify, just move on. Trust.

Do not second guess yourself or over analyze the situation and if you simply cannot decide, take a break, get outside and sort your energy out. Smudge your living space and yourself. Declutter your surroundings and your mind will follow. Make time for quiet contemplation. If you really don’t know what to do, take pause and do nothing until you receive clarity. This is not a time to move forward blindly.

This should not scare you, everything is going to be just fine. Because this time, you are going to listen and act upon what your Soul whispers to you. If it seems too good to be true, look closer or step back to gain a new perspective. If it feels like it is full of light, move that way. It’s like playing a game of “hot and cold” with the uUniverse. If things feel right and there are no misgivings, you are going the right way. If something is niggling at you, LISTEN.

This is how you learn to trust yourself completely. It is how you invite the alignment of your Higher Self and inner wisdom. Worst case scenario, there is a lesson here. Learn it as soon as you can and apply what you learn to the next opportunity.

The Universe is eternally patient.

With Love

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Four Of Athames, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Four Of Athames: “This is a card of respite from difficult activities. It could be a pause between major events or a vacation away from the commotion of the workplace routine. This is a time for replenishing energy and getting one’s thoughts in order. Sometimes it is necessary to take a break to rest and let the mind sort out plans and create new ideas. The serenity offered here is accompanied by a readiness to resume action as needed. This can indicate taking a break from the cares and frustrations of life, or simply stepping back from a conflict for a moment to reassess the situation with composure rather than the heat of contention. There is an implied preparedness and a sense of being careful not to let one’s guard down even when things seem to have calmed down. Applied to attitudes and perceptions, this card could suggest that one feels one’s plans are under attack by others who are aggressively pushing for their own agendas. A heightened sense of competition may be more in the mind than in reality, so taking a time out to reconsider matters is beneficial. There is also a possibility of needing some time to recuperate from an illness or injury.

Lily of the valley, a flower of calm, healing and peace, grows near the river. A loon, a symbol of serenity, peace and dream work, swims in the water.”

Four Of Athames Card Meaning: “Vacation, Recuperation, getting plans in order, patient but vigilant, tensions ease, gathering thoughts and strength in solitude, rest after a period of stress, recuperation from an illness, replenishment, Temporary resolution of a conflict, taking a break from the normal routine, relaxing, cleansing oneself of other people’s energies, releasing burdens.”

Four Of Athames As Challenger: “Exclusion, paranoia, illness requires rest, careful renewal of activities, taking precautions, agitation, sleeplessness.”

Prompt Words: “Vacation, Rest”*

We are coming to the end of another busy month, and wrapping up the first third of 2017! How the time flies by… it seems like we just started this journey and now here we are at the end of April. Spring is in full swing and summer is a promise on the horizon. What will you create with the rest of the year?

A rest is in order, a little reprieve. A great time to day dream, using the most powerful creative force we have at our disposal… our imagination. Stop for a moment and imagine what you wish the rest of 2017 to look like, and how that would set up this cycle we are on for the next nine years. Who is with you? How do you feel? What experiences are important to you? Which adventures do you choose to embark upon? It’s all up to you.

You can literally dream all this into life if you are really clear on what it would look and feel like to you. Without wondering whether or not it is possible, without thinking that you must do better or be better to deserve it. Write it all down. Make a vision board. Bring it to life in a way that resonates with you, one that you can use to remind you how much it would mean to you to have this kind of life. Leaving some space for fun, adventure, miracles and new people and experiences of course.

Relax into it. Breathe it into existence. Know that it is all possible for you now.

Namaste

The World Tree

Published April 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The World Tree, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The World Tree, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The World Tree: “In this card, the elementals, in their relation to the changing of the seasons, are reflected though the branches of the World Tree. The snake of wisdom, sometimes considered to be a beautiful serpent or a dragon, lies at the roots of the tree, for wisdom is the foundation of growth. The branches of this tree reside in the midst of the universe, equally balanced by the Sun and the Moon, God and Goddess, with its roots transiting the shadowy realms below, ruled by the Divine in their aspects of Hunter and Crone, lord of Shadows and Lady of Wisdom. The image reflects the formula of ‘as above, so below,’ with the image of the tree distilling the cosmic cycles with those of the earth and the individual. This card reflects the celebration and joy of achievement and of a successfully conducted effort, yet the card acknowledges that this ending is actually teh prelude to a fresh start. The World Tree of good conclusions and joyful new beginnings leads to the Greenman as the cycle is resumed.

There may be the attainment of objectives, or honours and material gains that lead to greater responsibilities, but with this comes a quickening that hints at more lying just beneath the surface. The motion of the cosmos is evident, and the cycles of life and the substrata of the moments of life are recognized as merely markers on the soul’s journey in the physical, spiritual, mental, or emotional planes. It is the end of one era and the beginning of another, good conclusions and joyful new beginnings. This card is one of hope and optimism in the face of inevitable change, for change is part of life.

A large ash tree, representing stability, connections, astral realms, spirits, and magical strength, is traditionally seen as the World Tree. The graceful serpent, a symbol of wisdom, cycles, and regeneration, weaves its way through the roots of the tree. A white crane flies by the tree and represents cycles, transformation, and the union of the otherworld, middleworld, and underworld.”

Meaning Of The World Tree Card: “Wholeness, Objectives Attained, Good Conclusions, End of a Matter, Time for Something New, Completion, Success, Joy, Advancement, Achievement, Fulfillment, Recognition, All is in Balance, Transition, Honours, Perfection, Reassurance.”

The World Tree Card As Challenger: “Unfinished Work or Project, Unresolved Situation, Success Brings New Burdens, Seeking Attainment, Payback, Stagnation of Efforts, More Work Needed.”

Prompt Words: “Completion, Wholeness”

~ By Ann Moura

Hmmmm again we have the white crane flying by… the World Tree. Did you take a moment to gaze into the image? There is so much symbolism in this card. It’s captivating. Profound. The seasons are here, the sacred cycles of the Great Mother. As above so below. The World Tree stretches from the center of the Earth to the Cosmos; feet planted firmly, arms outstretched to the heavens. Deep connection resides here, the green of the Heart center. There is so much healing here, wisdom and healing of the serpent; the kundalini energy rising from the bottom of the trunk. The Great Sun. The Mystical Moon. Spring and Summer and Fall and Winter are brought together for a moment in time. There is the hint of the elementals peering through the realms, bright eyes flickering, taking it all in.

And here you are that very white crane. That is you. Flying high, eyes still on the starry sky. Now you have the wisdom and the freedom to use it. Your heart is open to receiving. Anything is possible now. Keep going. You are on the right trajectory.

Namaste

Two of Pentacles

Published March 15, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Two of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Two of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Two of Pentacles: “This card shows a farmer balancing two pentacles, indicating his ability to balance finances as well as learn new skills, as progress in his area of expertise creates changes in methods. As a card of practicing dexterity, this card indicates energy being directed with determination to accomplish something for job, financial, or personal security. New approaches at work or a promotion could require specialized training, but the person has the ability to pick up these new skills with ease. While others may struggle or resist change, this person moves with confidence, adapting easily to new situations and requirements. The farmer depicted is unconcerned about the coming storm, for he knows his job and has secured his barn, so he is prepared for anything.

In some cases this card indicates balancing two jobs for financial security, but with the resolve necessary to carry on until finances improve. It could also be a card of apprenticeship, learning from a master or other professional, or it could simply show the need to live within a budget, depending on surrounding cards.

Patchouli, an herb of growth, knowledge and balancing finances, grows by the barn. A fox, for adaptability, cleverness, determination and agility, walks nearby.”

Two of Pentacles Card Meaning: “Balancing finances, learning new skills, agile with finances, energy for attaining goals, next phase in work begins, employment opportunity, a learning stage passes quickly, weighing work choices or options for a business decision.”

Two of Pentacles As Challenger: “Difficult situation requires a careful balance, a need to live within means, lack of enthusiasm for changes needed for success, stress.”

Prompt Words: “Balancing finances, learning new skills”

~ By Ann Moura

There is a message of balance here, and also a message of choice; of weighing one’s options. There may be a polarity here – a big decision to make between two very different outcomes. The way that he is holding the pentacles indicates that really, the decision has already been made; within your heart of hearts, you know exactly which choice must be made… it is the choice that uplifts your spirits, even if it seems daunting or scary at first, you simply know this is the right choice for you. Notice that the man has a hint of a smile on his face as he gazes up at the pentacle on his right, his foot raised as if he is about to dance. He, the fox and the rooster on the rooftop all point in the same direction; this is also confirmation. There is more light in the sky on his right side, letting you know that your decision will be supported by the Universe, and that the future is bright. The impending storm in the background indicates that there is some urgency here; this is a decision that must be made soon, you simply cannot sit on the fence forever.  Fox is quick witted and agile; able to assess a situation and pounce without holding back and losing his chance. He is asking that you do the same; trust in your instincts and intuition and take the reins when the window of opportunity opens to you. The doors of the barn are closed, indicating that one chapter is ended and a brand new beginning is on offer to you now.

You know what you need to do in order to move forward.

Do it now

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Six of Anthames, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Six of Anthames: “The card shows steady progress is being made and a difficult time is passing. The person is moving toward smoother waters, leaving worries and upsets behind. There is a sense of peace of mind and tranquility, yet there could be a feeling of sadness that things did not work out as originally anticipated. This may be especially true if a physical move or change of employment is indicated in the reading. This card can also represent a journey with positive results for alleviating current problems, worries, or dangers. Because the change may be imposed due to circumstances beyond one’s control, there may be a sense of loss, of having to leave something behind. Nevertheless, this is a positive and ultimately soothing transition, whether physical, material, c=emotional, or intellectual. Things will improve, and soon there will be a feeling of relief and hope for a better future. Conflicts are being left behind and one is moving to calmer waters. Victory over adversity is handled with dignity, ad may stem from having made a decision with calm consideration. A difficult time is passing and troubles are being left behind. There is a much needed break from troubles, and time alone or with close family or friends to sort things out and make plans for future goals. This is also a card of vacations and travels, possibly overseas.

Mustard, for travel, money protection and strength, grows on the riverbank. The horse, a symbol of travel, cooperation, power, and renewal, stands beside the traveler.

Meaning of Six of Anthames Card: “Steady progress, improvement, overcoming difficulties, sorting things out, troubles left behind, a tranquil journey, success after worries and anxieties, new opportunities, sacrifices bringing success.”

Six of Anthames as Challenger: “Turmoil, displacement, delays, unable to get away from you problems, need to handle a turbulent situation.”

Prompt Words: “Steady progress, leaving your troubles behind.”*

~ by Ann Moura

There is definitely a feeling in the image of this card of crossing over the waters and coming into greener pastures. Water symbolizes feelings and emotional states of mind; when we cross the waters, we have moved through the emotions and can see clearly. The shore ahead is well within reach; we can be confident that joy awaits us, as does a new found confidence symbolized by the yellow colour of the flowers. The look of the shore behind us is wintery and sparse; uninviting, the grass is dry and the tree has lost its leaves. The new shore we are coming to is lush with greenery and flowers, which tells us also that abundance and prosperity is available to us in the very near future. These are all very auspicious signs!

The journey is over, and we are ready to start something new. Notice that the traveler looks ahead, and not behind him. The past is gone and we are looking ahead at what is in store for us. He is also traveling with only himself and his horse. This is not an adventure so much of material gain, as one of the Soul; the tools you require on this journey are all within you, not outside of you. The horse is a symbol of change, freedom, strength, joy and power. The hand of the traveler on the back of the horse is a sign that he is well connected to all of these aspects of himself.

Take this message as a sign that you are on the right path; that your journey is about to get a little wilder, a little more spirited and way more exciting; yet there will be confidence, capability, abundance and prosperity. So basically, all of the bases are covered.

Step into the energy of the eclipse and the new moon tomorrow with grace and ease as you start a brand new magical chapter of your life.

And so it is

Namaste

Ten Of Pentacles

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ten Of Pentacles, from the Green Witch Tarot Card deck, by Ann Moura, artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

Ten Of Pentacles: “This is a card of prosperity that leads to happiness with home and family. The supportive family environment offers emotional and financial security. As an undertone in this card, there is heritage in the sense of family continuity that may be manifested as money or goods passed along through the generations, as with heirlooms, traditions, or stories. This card also indicates accumulated wealth bringing stability and ongoing contentment to the family. The timing of this prosperity may be in middle life rather than something one is born into, showing that finances have been carefully handled to ensure future security and provide for the needs of the family, perhaps as investments or savings for the education or vocational training for the children.

Another aspect of this card is that of buying or selling a house or property, refinancing the property, or spending money on redecorating or making repairs. It can also imply an extended family dwelling together, perhaps three generations under one roof, or a family providing for the care of other family members. Depending on the surrounding cards, this card could indicate a change of location, such as selling one house and buying another. While it is generally an auspicious card, there may be other issues concerning possession of the home if there are other cards in the spread that relate to legal matters or inheritances.

Cowslip, for prosperity, beauty, and protection, grows along the garden wall. A kingfisher, a symbol of prosperity, harmony, and happiness, is perched on a branch, gazing into a pond.”

Meaning For The Ten Of Pentacles Card: “Prosperity for the home, buying, selling, redecorating, refinancing, making home repairs, favorable placement, good investments, fruitful marriage, stability, legacy, family heritage, heirlooms, traditions being passed to the next generation, contentment, supportive family environment.”

As Challenger: “Disruptions, family quarrels, problems with a legacy, loss of inheritance, gambling”

Prompt Words: “Prosperity for the home”*

~ By Ann Moura

If money has been an issue lately, let that feeling of lack go completely and feel into trust. Trust that the Universe is providing for you. Know that there is money flowing to you, and through you. You are an important part of the economy, and you will be able to receive and also to give freely. Know that you deserve this prosperity, and that you can use it for your own life and loved ones; and that you will also be helping others. You help others by contributing to their success as you spend money in their shops or businesses; this would be a very good time to commit to purchasing from locally owned and operated “mom and pop” stores rather than the big box conglomerates.

You may receive an heirloom or inheritance of sorts, possibly in the form of an investment or buyout, valuable information, money, jewelry, or trust fund. Whatever it is, it will assist you to release the worries and pain that you may have experienced in the past regarding money and security in your life. It may not be a huge windfall, but it will be exactly what you need, when you need it.

Know in your heart that you can ask for what you need. Consult your angels and guides, tell them what you desire and then move forward, knowing it will come to you. Release the habit of focusing on what you don’t have or can’t see in your current reality, for this is an old way of thinking which no longer serves you.. (and never did!). Know that you are always supported, protected and provided for as the Divine child that you are.

Affirmations:

“I Am Loved, I AM Supported, I AM Provided For

I gratefully accept gifts of love, abundance, and prosperity today and every day.”

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
