Odysseus: “The Journey”

The Myth: “Odysseus was a hero of great wit and intelligence. It was his idea to penetrate the walls of Troy by giving the Trojans a large wooden horse (eventually known as the Trojan Horse) that carried a band of Greek soldiers within it.

After the Trojan War, Odysseus made his way home to Ithaca. While stopping over at an island, he managed to outsmart the Cyclops Polyphemus. Polyphemus, full of rage, asked his father, Poseidon, to never allow Odysseus to reach his home. Poseidon did all he could to prevent Odysseus’s safe arrival, although Odysseus eventually returned to Ithaca. Homer chronicled Odysseus’s long and arduous journey in The Odyssey.”

The Message: “If you have been working toward achieving a considerable goal, this card assures you that you can do it. There will be many challenges along your way. Distractions, temptations, and battles are inevitable in every hero’s quest, but only those willing to face the dangers and defeat the monsters experience victory. Those who don’t get distracted or give up when the journey gets too rough, those who face every challenge head on, will assuredly reach their goals. Decide today to be that person. Have heart and courage. Be heroic.

Odysseus fought a ten year battle at Troy and took another ten years to fight his way back home, but he eventually accomplished the seemingly impossible. Yet it was not the accomplished task that made Odysseus great – it was the journey itself.

This card signals victory. Stay true to your heart and vision now, for you have the power to create and achieve great things. Embrace your journey, both the challenges and the joys of it, and stay true to your heart’s desire. Magnificent things are possible now!”*

It is very important to stay your course now. Let nothing distract, discourage or defeat you. There may be challenges ahead, but know that they are manageable and that you have the strength and resources to accomplish your goal. Do not let anyone talk you out of your dreams, especially your own fear! We can be our own worst enemies when things are not going smoothly, and we can give up just before we make a major breakthrough. Take this message as a sign that you are on the right track, and perseverance is key.

Action comes in many forms, and forward momentum starts from within. Self-belief and conviction are important now, so do not give up on yourself, know that you have got this. Be careful who you confide in at this time, well-meaning or not, other’s fears can throw you off-balance with their doubt and you must preserve your energy. If you feel like you need advice go to someone who inspires and uplifts you; someone who has beaten the odds and succeeded in the area you are pursuing. Do not take advice from someone who is stuck themselves! Think of negativity and fear as the Trojan horse, coming in stealthily to steal your victory and joy. Be vigilant and only allow clarity, focus and positive intention.

Victory is yours and it will come in more than just the goal achieved. It will come in the mindset that you will have access to once you realize just how capable you are. Although you may be settled on one main goal, this will turn out only to be a stepping stone on a powerful journey of self-discovery and expansion. Embrace the journey as much as the destination, for what you learn along the way will be invaluable and transform the way you see the world and your place in it.

Namaste

Selene

Selene, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Selene, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Selene: “Intuition”

The Myth: “Selene is the daughter of Hyperion (the god of light) and Theia (the goddess of heavenly light) and the sister of Helios (the sun) and Eos (the dawn). She is the personification of the moon, often depicted with a half moon on her head, riding a silver chariot across the sky. She is sometimes depicted bearing a torch.”

The Message: “This is a time for cutting away all your mind chatter and connecting to the deepest part of yourself. You have an inner voice, a feeling that cannot lie or steer you wrongly. You must be brave enough to hear, acknowledge and follow that voice. Intuition is not rooted in logical or cultural thought; it is rooted in the deepest core of your being.

If you feel confused or do not know what to do or where to go, realize now that the answers you seek have been within you all this time. You may not be ready to hear them all, but you can hear enough to take you to the next place. You may be on a journey where things need to unfold one step at a time, and your intuition will be the only guide you have along this path. Trust it.

It is important to have a time-out right now, as you must reconnect to your self so that you can hear this inner voice of intuition. It is essential that you write, meditate, or do whatever it is that reconnects you to your self at this time. Intuition is the wisdom of the body, heart and mind in unison, and outer influences must be cut away at this moment so that you can synchronize with this inner intelligence. You need to establish a routine that includes personal connection time so that you are always in touch with your self.

All the answers exist within you. Right now, all you need to do is listen.”*

Although this card depicts the full moon, it comes to us in the new moon phase. The time of setting intentions, planting seeds that will come to fruition in the full moon phase.

What do you wish to create? How in touch are you feeling to your inner wisdom right now? Is some quiet time in order, a little break from the chaos of the holiday season?

Take some time today to pull your energy back to you, particularly if you are feeling extra stressed or scattered. Take some time to be quiet. To meditate; contemplate. Create.

This is the last new moon of 2017, use it wisely. Use it to create something new. Use it to create a shift, a transformation. A new way of Being in the world.

What you plant today will start to grow.  Your dreams will produce little shoots of light in your life starting January 2nd, the first full moon of 2018.

Today is important. Your canvas. Your blank slate.

What will you create?

Namaste

Athena ~ Wisdom

Published October 17, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Athena ~ Wisdom, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

The Myth: “Zeus feared that his first wife, Metis, whose name means wisdom, would bear a son who would overthrow him. Zeus swallowed Metis when she was pregnant with Athena. Despite his effort, Athena sprang fully grown from Zeus’s head, dressed in her war armor and shimmering gold, holding a sharp spear.

Athena is the virgin goddess of wisdom and appears in many myths, planning strategies for wars and guiding heroes toward their goals. Her ability to see things from a higher perspective allows her to choose the best course of action.

Athena and Poseidon competed to become the patron deity of what would become Athens. Poseidon created a spring that brought water and trade, but it was salty and not good for drinking. Athena created the domesticated olive tree, which gave the Athenians food, wood, and oil. Her gift was by far the wiser and more fruitful, and she became the patron of Athens, which was named in her honour. This example illustrates how Athena used her ability to see the bigger picture to achieve her desired outcome.”

The Message: “Athena represents clarity and balance of mind. It may be time for you to stop and take stock of your life. You may need to put feelings to the side and closely review your current situation. You may need to journal, meditate, or go for a long walk in order to obtain clarity.

Athena helps heroes win battles, but only through intelligence, clarity, foresight, and wisdom. This is a time to be smart, and wisdom only comes when the heart and the mind are in balance. If you feel muddled, overwhelmed, or frustrated, it is time to stop engaging in the dramas of your exterior life so that you can see what is really occurring and discover how to move forward and defeat the monsters of your inner life. This is a time to face yourself calmly and honestly , so that the guiding light of clarity can see you through to the next phase in your life.”*

Yesterday we were granted the supreme protection of Isis. Today we are blessed with the wisdom of Athena. Now that we are protected by powerful warrior energies, it is time to dig deep and find our inner resources. It takes much more than brute strength to win a battle, we must use the power of our minds. Both Goddesses can contribute to our clarity of thought, our decisiveness and our ability to tap into our vision and strength of character, where true battles are won.

We are being asked to look at things in a new and different way. We are reminded that each of us is on our own journey and we cannot interfere with the journey of another. We can provide support and guidance, just as the Divine can offer us, but we cannot live their lives for them. Maybe we have been a bit judgmental. Maybe we have been withholding love from someone in an effort to teach them a lesson. Maybe we have been sucked into playing a game we didn’t want to play. Maybe we have convinced ourselves of something that deep down we know is simply not true.

All that must be released. The slate must be cleared so that new ideas can form. There is a new way to see this situation, but we must be open to it.

Athena is the goddess of wisdom and strategy. She is not intimidated. She is not easily influenced. She does not react with emotion, but steps back to gain perspective, considering the bigger picture. She makes a plan of action. We are being urged to do the same. Refuse to get caught up in the drama. See things from a broader perspective. Strive for the highest good instead of personal gain. Take a break from the situation until you can think clearly and move forward in the best possible way.

Namaste

Eos

Published September 12, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Eos, from the Mythic Oracle, By Carisa Mellado, Artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eos, from the Mythic Oracle, By Carisa Mellado, Artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Eos: “New Beginnings”

The Myth: “Eos is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion (god of light) and Theia (goddess of heavenly light) and the sister of Helios (sun) and Selene (moon). She is the personification of dawn. Each day, she rises out of Oceanus (ocean) and opens the gates of heaven so that Helios can ride through them and illuminate the sky. She is an incredible beauty, with rosy fingers, golden arms, and large, white wings. She is often depicted as wearing a tiara and a yellow dress woven with flowers.”

The Message: “If you have drawn this card, dawn is here. The long, dark night is over, and you stand at the beginning of a new day. This card comes with a burst of new energy, as all possibility is open to you now. This is a good time to start afresh, make plans, hatch ideas, and open up to your rising inspiration.

The time is right for new beginnings, and you will be projecting this into the world. Do not be surprised if opportunities start knocking on your door – unexpected meetings, gifts, or invitations may turn up. Enjoy this period, and allow yourself to be guided by the Universe and your inner voice. A new day has dawned in your life, so celebrate and enjoy it. A journey awaits you!”

~ By Carisa Mellado

The only choice is to start new. Change what needs changing. Resistance is futile. Forward momentum is the only way.

We finish each chaotic month feeling that we must deserve a little reprieve. Only to be thrown into yet even more chaos. Wobbling to get our bearings we stand up and dust ourselves off yet again. We survey the territory. Does it look the same? Can it ever really feel the same?

Change is the only option. Moving forward fearlessly with less baggage than we may have anticipated. A fresh start with less obstacles in the way. Rewriting our story from the depth of our Soul.

See it as a gift; all of it. Each phase of it. Release the pain and meet the new vulnerable and receptive. Honour what the Universe sends your way and your part in attracting it… somehow. Try not to take it all too personally. Try not to attach to it but instead let it all flow to you and through you.

Know that everything is in perfect Divine order. Even if you are feeling like things are not going the way that you would have liked. Just yet.

Have faith. In yourself, in the Universe, in the endless possibility of the now. Choose your thoughts wisely. Channel your energy into your intentions. Use affirmations to keep you on track.

For the Highest Good Of All and So it Is.

Namaste

Hemera ~ Rebirth

Published August 22, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Hemera ~ Rebirth, from the Mythic Oracle card deck, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Hemera ~ Rebirth, from the Mythic Oracle card deck, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Hemera ~ Rebirth

The Myth: “Hemera is the primordial embodiment of day. She is the daughter of Nyx (night) and Erebus (darkness). She is the bringer of the day. At night, Hemera’s mother, Nyx, draws the veil of night across the Earth. In the morning, Hemera disperses the night mists and bathes the world in a heavenly light again.”

The Message: “When we experience a life-changing transformation, we return to a world that has remained the same. Old meanings no longer hold value for us, and we feel a sense of displacement. Although this can be a very frustrating period when the regular world no longer makes sense, eventually we begin to feel new meaning in life, see the sense in things with new eyes, and make the appropriate changes to reflect our new lives.

This is the transformation taking place for you now. You are coming out of the darkness, a life-changing period, and bringing the wisdom from that period into your new life. This takes time, bravery, and exploration. A new you has been born, and you must now give your new self the love and nurturing it needs to grow into its full potential.

This is a period of rebirth. You may have just been through a journey that challenged and awakened you both physically and spiritually. You are surfacing now from the night into the day, changed, and you must reintegrate all that you have learned into your self and your life.”*

~ By Carisa Mellado

The changes we are undergoing right now will take a while to integrate. However, they are so profound that they will quite literally take us from night to day. Total transformation. Complete transmutation of energies. Expansion, awakening, ascension. For All.

Some faster than others yes, but everyone will have to experience the shift in some way. Those who embrace it and dive into it fully, mind, body and spirit will soar. Those who resist will find struggle until they learn to surrender the old in exchange for something brand new. How you experience this is completely up to you. Full responsibility for the manifestation of our own reality; there is no other way.

You may have a feeling that you are just waking up. Things that held your interest may no longer inspire you. Relationships may come to a sudden and shocking end, particularly if you have been holding on to something that was toxic or stagnant. Career choices may change, coming from a more heart centered awareness. Creative self-expression will come from a place of self-love and acceptance; you can have so much fun with that one now! Travel may beckon to you; particularly to sacred sites and far flung places. Time alone that used to make you feel as if you were missing out will now be cherished. Crowds may repel you. Animals will suddenly seem to have a higher consciousness than you ever noticed before. You are waking up, Dear One.

Suddenly the things that made you uncomfortable will draw you near… the things that kept you stuck in your comfort zone will feel stifling and suffocating. Polarities will start to shift.

Heart and mind expanding, aligning. Opening and receiving. Senses sharpening; colours brighter, sounds clearer. And your dreams! Oh the dreams you can dream both awake and asleep will blow out the limitations you once lived so rigorously by.

Bring on the rebirth. We are ready.

Namaste

Dionysus

Published August 12, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Dionysus, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Dionysus, from the Mythic Oracle, by Carisa Mellado, artwork by Michele-Lee Phelan

Dionysus: “Freedom”

The Myth: “Dionysus is the son of Zeus and the mortal Semele. While Semele was pregnant with Dionysus, Hera, disguised as an old woman, convinced Semele to make Zeus prove he was a god. Semele asked Zeus to swear an unbreakable oath to grant her a favor. He agreed, and was thus forced to reveal his true nature when she demanded it. Zeus appeared as a bolt of lightning, and its fire consumed Semele. Zeus saved Dionysus by sewing him into his thigh until it was time for him to be born, giving Dionysus two births.

Dionysus is the wise god of nature, vegetation, wine and music. He embodies the ecstasy and intoxication of unity and the dissolving of barriers. He is known as the liberator, freeing humankind from the chains of the mundane through music, wine, madness and ecstasy.

The Message: “Ecstasy is the transcendence of the ordinary state. It is an altered state of consciousness, a type of trance that moves us beyond our own self-awareness into a unified awareness. This state heightens our thought processes, intensifies our emotions, expands our spiritual awareness, and enhances our physical abilities. Dionysus instigates the trance that ushers us into his realm of ecstatic awareness.

Dionysus represents the freedom of the senses and the liberation of the civil and dutiful mind. His appearance in your cards signifies a deep connection to art, music and poetry and points you toward obtaining freedom through catharsis.

If your life has become overwhelmed by mundane routine, though and existence, Dionysus is here to shake you awake. This is the time for freeing your senses and finding your true voice, your dance. It is a time to break free from the rules of the civil world, to find your own way instead.

If you have drawn this card, liberation is at hand. the key to this liberation will come through deep catharsis – an intense, climactic, emotional experience that leaves you feeling renewed, revitalized, and reborn. The experience will smash the psychological barriers that bind you – the experience of religious or spiritual ecstasy, the total experience of unity with all that is, the ecstatic experience of god within and without.”*

~by Carisa Mellado

Our society has a twisted sense of ecstasy. As soon as you hear the word, what do you think of? The drug? Illicit sex? Hedonism? It’s all gone sideways and our minds are so used to being in the gutter it’s hard to imagine another realm of reality.

Yet, what if the most pure form or ecstasy is found within our deep connection to the Divine? Is that not what the ancient Guru’s sought in the caves high in the Himalayan mountains? The ecstasy that could only be found when the ego mind was surpassed and our Souls reached out to touch Source energy itself? Ecstasy is not a quickie, it’s not a fast distraction away from responsibility. It can’t be found in a meaningless connection. Ecstasy is the greatest gift we are given; the ability to open ourselves up and receive Unconditional Love.

Ecstasy is stepping past the feeling of stagnancy and lethargy. It is being fully awake and fully aware, present, alive. It is feeling the beat of the music of life with your whole being and all of your senses. It is about throwing yourself into your life with passion and inspiration.

So how do we find it here? We find it through joy and lightness of Being. We find it in Love, both given and received. Not in empty physical connection, but true, heart centered loving sacred union; or through the strength of the bonds love that we feel for our family, pets and friends. We find it when we are passionate about a cause, when we truly step onto our Soul path and become of service. Through refusing to repeat a pattern ad nauseum in our lives, but learning and moving forward. It’s about releasing habits and limiting belief systems, taking risks and opening up to opportunity. It is about grasping life by the horns and riding it wildly, even if that is completely out of character!

Stir things up. Get sensual in your creative self-expression. Get out of your box and fly free for a while. You deserve it, and it will do you a world of good.

Namaste

The Moirae ~ Destiny

Published July 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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
