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

Lynx

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Lynx, from the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams, David Carson, artwork by Angela Werneke

Lynx: “Secrets”

“Lynx…

You know the secrets

So very well,

The Dreamtime and the magic,

But you’ll never tell.

May I learn to hold my tongue,

Observe like the Sphinx

Powerful, yet silent,

The medicine of Lynx”

“It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask Lynx medicine. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get the silent Lynx to speak. To be confronted by the powerful medicine of Lynx signifies that you do not know something about yourself or others.

Lynx is the keeper of the secrets of lost magical systems and occult knowledge. Lynx has the ability to move through time and space, and to go into the Great Silence for unraveling any mystery. Lynx is not the guardian of secrets, but the knower of secrets. The problem lies in getting Lynx to instruct you. He or she would rather be off chasing a bird or kicking sand in your face than running circles around you.

Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance. If this medicine is strong in you, you will get mental pictures concerning other people and the exact things they have hidden, either from themselves or from others. You will see their fears, their lies, and their self-deceptions. You will also know where they have hidden the treasure, if there is any. You never speak of these revelations – you simply know.

The only way you can coax information about yourself out of a Lynx medicine person (in case you have forgotten where you hid the treasure) is to respect the practices of his or her tradition. If you go to a Gypsy with Lynx medicine, you must show your respect by paying with Money after the reading. If you go to a Choctaw medicine person, he or she will reach into your midsection, or use other traditional methods to help you. A blanket or tobacco should be given in exchange for the medicine he or she has performed for you. This maxim is known as the law of the Lynx people, and is practiced by Native American, Gypsy, Sufi, and Egyptian cultures, among others.

If you have pulled the Lynx card, you can be sure that “secrets” are afloat. If this is your personal medicine, you should listen to your higher self. Be still and pay attention to the revelations you receive either in the form of mental pictures or through a high singing voice in your inner ear. Perhaps you will receive information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth is signalling to you in some manner.

Some medicine people believe that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt was not a Lion but a Lynx. This Lynx does not say much. With an enigmatic smile, the great cat watches over the sand of forever.”*

~ by Jamie Sams, David Carson

Lynx possesses the gifts of a mentalist, one who can read the thoughts and minds of others. It may seem that it comes through a study of body language, or an observation of behaviour or habits or cues. But this goes much deeper. It is a feeling into another, an immediate assessment of their energy; their vibration and their intentions, good or bad. If red flags present themselves, take notice, for this is a gift and you are being warned. Take all into consideration when you get that feeling that someone cannot or should not be trusted; or on the flip side, if they feel better than the cover of their book may suggest, trust your instinct.

Be extra observant and be sure to listen carefully; heed your intuition. You have been given super powers by the medicine of Lynx. To see deeply into the ego driven personality of another and straight into their Soul.

Use it wisely.

Namaste

Osiris

Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Osiris, from The Anubis Oracle, by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

Osiris: “Regeneration ~ Transmutation ~ Beauty”

“Osiris is the enlightened ruler and husband of Isis who was murdered by his brother, Set. Through the love and magical practices of Isis, he was revived sufficiently to transmit to her the seed of Horus. He had previously fathered Anubis with Isis’s sister, Nephthys.

In Egyptian mystery teachings, all beings strive to awaken as Osiris. The purpose of scriptures such as the Egyptian Book of The Dead, which is actually the Book of Coming Forth by Day, is to guide souls through the transitions of death, as well as the transitions of the shamanic rites of passage through death and the Underworld.

Although Osiris has long been associated with death and called the Lord of the Underworld, it is more appropriate to acknowledge him here as the archetypal regenerative principle that transmutes outworn, deteriorating form into its renewed, shining manifestation of beauty. Osiris can be found in the primordial, watery deep, and in the river itself. He invites us to let go and rest upon his earthly green chest as he wraps his supportive arms around our bodies and turns us into that which we are in the process of becoming.

If you have chosen this card, you have been asked to enter deeply into the process of transmutation and regeneration. You are being given the opportunity to experience death of the old consciously and to embrace the beauty that is possible for each of us to experience as we are reborn into the next level of our potential.

Things are changing in your world, and it can be an exciting time. Regardless of what is happening around you, take time to be quiet, and listen for the whispers from Osiris that come from the deepest recesses of your being. He will speak to you of possibilities, potential, and beauty. Feel the stirrings of regeneration within you when you commune with him.”*

~ by Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf

It’s up to us whether we let change knock us down or lift us up. It can be terrifying, our fears reducing us to feeling like children, searching for help and advice with every step. Or we can gather our strength and decide to shift our perspective and embrace change with grace and ease, trusting in the Universe that everything will work for the highest good of all.

Surrender to the change and find peace in the moment. No matter how chaotic your world seems right now, take some time to be outside and breathe fresh air. Communicate with Mother Gaia, put your spine against a big, supportive tree. Ask for signs from your Animal Spirit Guides. Eke out a few minutes of silent contemplation or meditation every day. Incorporate yoga and deep breathing. These simple measures will help you to retain your balance and find your center not matter what is happening around you, it just might help you to stay sane in the eye of the storm.

Most importantly, release any and all old, limiting thought patterns and need to control.

Change is in the works and cannot be stopped. 

However, it can be calmly navigated.

Moment by moment.

Breath by breath.

Namaste

Orange Bellied Parrot

Published November 4, 2015 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Orange Bellied Parrot, from the Animal Voices Oracle Card deck, by Chip Richards

Orange Bellied Parrot: “Radiance ~ Expression ~ Movement”

The Gift: “Winged one of the sun. Traveler by night. True colours shining bright. Master singer from above. Bringer of secrets and gifts of love. I am Parrot. The Orange Bellied Parrot is native to the Australian bird tribe and one of the only long distance migrators of its kind in the world. While Parrots can be master of imitation, they each have a distinct voice and unique call that is their own.”

The Message: “When Parrot flies into your world he brings a burst of fresh energy and the gift of movement. Just as Parrot flies through the trees at great speed, angling his body to keep going fast while just barely missing branches – he invites you now to trust the energy of what feels most exciting and be ready to leap into action. You have a  special way of seeing things and doing things that is all your own. If you feel like you have something to say, say it. When you speak from your heart people will always listen to you. And as you move in the direction of your dreams, the path will open magically to greet you. Like a rainbow in motion, your light will learn to bend!

The Call: “When Parrot sings and flies through the trees, it can’t help but bring its beauty with it. As you step out into the world this week, bring yourself – in full colour – with you. Dress nice, be playful and expressive. Spend time with people that make you laugh. Laughter opens doors to new possibility! Take time to speak what is in your heart and also to really listen to others. Breathe deep with a smile. It is time to share your true colors with the world!”*

~ by Chip Richards

Pay close attention to the birds around you at this time. They may not be parrots, but ravens, owls, eagles, humming birds and seagulls, amongst many others, can give you just as much of a message as the beautiful and colourful orange bellied parrot can, you just have to listen… pay close attention! Be particularly observant of those who show them selves to you, or call to you repeatedly. Patterns of seeing the same bird or animal is always a message from your animal spirit guides, and can be deciphered as such.

Birds are also the messengers for the angels who wish to communicate with us. This is alluded to in the picture above, do you see that the higher parrot is surrounded by light from the sky, reminiscent of the energy field or aura of an angel? Your angels are asking you to find the joy in your life right now, urging you to remember that through your passions you can invoke the most wonderful creative energy.

Magic is in action here, step forward to embrace it with an open heart.

Namaste

Ascended Master Manjushri ~ Listen

Ascended Master Manjushri ~ Listen, from the Ascended Master Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ascended Master Manjushri ~ Listen, from the Ascended Master Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Ascended Master Manjushri ~ Listen, from the Ascended Master Oracle Card deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Ascended Master Manjushri ~ Listen: “You can hear your Divine guidance best by quieting yourself and listening. Shut out noisy stimulation like telephones and television and relax in a quiet place. Do not try to make anything happen. Just listen to our own thoughts, breath, and the rhythm of your heart. Then mentally ask questions of your guides and angels. Listen to the loving truth that they speak in your heart, body, and mind. Listen to your own inner truths. Trust your intuition and take action accordingly.

Additional Meanings Of This Card: Have a quiet retreat. Your guides and angels are talking to you – are you listening? Less talking and more listening is called for right now. Admit your true feelings to yourself. Listen to what messages any aches or pains are trying to tell you (the body always talks to those who listen).

Manjushri is a Buddhist deity of wisdom who holds a sword to cut through illusions and bring about clarity and understanding. Call upon Manjushri for help with understanding Diving messages, and to increase your receptivity to Divine intelligence and wisdom.”*

– Doreen Virtue, Ph.D

Before the fog lifts, there is silence. When there is silence we can hear our angels and guides if we listen carefully… grounded and centered, releasing the stress and overwhelm, and tuning in to our innermost depths.

There is something that you need to know right now, and your angels and guides have been working to get your attention. Maybe you have passed off their signs and messages as mere coincidence; or you have been so busy worrying (and creating more of what you DO NOT WANT by doing so… just a friendly reminder!!) that you may have blinders on to the opportunities being sent your way. Maybe you need a nudge in the right direction; one that forces you out of your comfort zone in order to get to where you need to be. Maybe you have been ignoring the red flags being waved at you about a certain person or situation… What rings true for you? You know, in reading this right now, what the situation is that they are addressing. Now you must listen to the guidance they offer.

Birds and animals are wonderful messengers of the Divine; have you had any strange, recurring or out of the ordinary experiences with birds or animals lately? This is a wonderful way to get your attention, and if you have, you can look up that particular animal totem and see if it has a message that resonates with you.

Song lyrics, books jumping off shelves or being given to you unexpectedly, and snippets of conversations caught “on the fly” (for example in the coffee shop or gym changeroom) can also be signs if they resonate strongly with what you are going through yourself. This synchronicity is the Universe supplying valuable information to you in hopes that you take notice. The more you notice, the more it will come.

Take a few moments today to breathe deeply, centering and grounding yourself and ask Manjushri to assist you in connecting to the Divine Guidance and wisdom that the Universe has for you. Send gratitude and love for the support you are getting; even if it isn’t exactly what you would “like” to hear. All is in perfect Divine Order.

Affirmations

The Universe guides me to my most harmonious reality. I receive clear signs and messages of love from my angels, today and every day.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Psychic Tarot For The Heart Oracle Card deck, by John Holland: Listen

Listen ~ Key Words: “See, hear, sense, quiet, intuition, knowing.”

“Take a moment to quiet your mental chatter and listen. In relationships, it is important to pay attention to what the other person is really saying. Too often in conversations, you are already planning what you are going to say while the other person is still talking. You make assumptions about where the conversation is going and plan your part of the conversation accordingly, even working the conversation to a desired outcome! When this happens, you do not truly “hear” what the other person said, and in doing so, you were not present for the person.

Listening starts with becoming quiet, centered, and totally present. Listening involves many senses. Use your eyes to see the body language of the other person. Use your ears to hear not only the words spoken but also the tone used to express them. Use your intuition to get a sense of what the person is really saying and feeling. Intuition often helps you hear what is not said as well as what is said. This is crucial to understanding the person or situation.

Understanding is essential to improving the relationship or situation. Remember once again to center yourself and use ll of your senses to understand what is actually being communicated.

Listening is a gift. Give this gift to your partner, parents, children, friends, co-workers, pets and anyone you meet. Most important, give this gift to yourself. Tune in to your ind, body, and soul. Are you listening? What do you hear?

Affirmation:

I honor myself by being present and

truly listening to the messages I hear.”

Traditional tarot archetype: High Priestess.*

There is nothing more powerful in a relationship than giving someone your undivided attention; particularly while hearing them out. As the card says, if you are paying attention, you will be using all of your senses to truly understand where this person is coming from; how they are feeling and what level their emotions are at. This is a gift to a loved one; helping a child or elderly person to feel special while also increasing their confidence and self esteem. It’s the easiest gift in the world to give, yet in a world of technology it takes incredible mindfulness to remember to do so.

How many times have you been to a coffee shop, restaurant, or playground only to see all the people over the age of about 8 bent over their cell phone, mp3 player, tablet or lap top? How many times have you witnessed someone; a child, parent or partner usually; trying to get the attention of someone who is too busy texting or answering an email to stop for a few minutes and listen to what they have to say? How many times have you been that person – the one who is too absorbed in technology, or the flip side; the one who is yearning to be heard?

This is a message that sometimes we need to resort to the old fashioned… arrange some one-on-one time with your child, partner, spouse, parent, or friend. Look into their eyes; and truly see them. Listen to what they have to say; really hear them. Be in the moment, knowing that this undivided attention is one of the most valuable gifts you can give someone you care about or love; plus, you might actually learn something! Perspective is everything, time is valuable and love and friendship are always better expressed in person. Smiley face.

Namaste
