Daily Angel Oracle Card: Thoth ~ Illumination, from The Anubis Oracle Card deck, by Nicki Skully and Linda Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr
Thoth ~ Illumination: “Architect of Wisdom ~ Enlightened Communication”
“Thoth most often appears with the body of a man and the head of an ibis, although he expresses his wisdom through many forms. (He is the serpent in the Key Card and cards 12 and VII and often appears as a baboon.) Representing the highest concept of mind, he is the one who brought us language and writing. In Egypt he was revered as the patron of scribes because of the enlightened communication that he brought to every situation. Thoth directs us to the experiences we requires to grow, often with playfulness and humor. He sees the cosmic joke beyond the human experience and brings levity, even lightheartedness and merriment into our challenges and dialogs. When we align ourselves with his intelligence, we can perceive solutions to our challenges in innovative and resourceful ways. Like the moon he represents, he is the fullness of light in the darkness and reflects back to us its essential wisdom.
As the sacred Holy Scribe and Architect of Wisdom, Thoth urges us ever upward toward higher learning so that we are able to understand the deeper meaning of our lives. When we have embodied the truth of who we are and why we are here, we are able to articulate and share our soul’s wisdom authentically from an enlightened place.
If you have pulled this card, it is time to cultivate your relationship with Thoth. A new level of guidance is available to you. As you commune with Thoth, you may ask specific questions about something that has been troubling you or any difficult situations in your life. He can offer new direction or a fresh perspective. He also brings you his expertise and articulation in both speech and writing.
Allow yourself to experience Thoth’s guidance and the illumination he provides. If you are attentive, he may give you a vision or your higher self.”*

Our invitation to connect with Thoth is a great and sacred gift and should be treated with great reverence and respect. It is a sign that we have reached a new chapter in our spiritual enlightenment; the next rung on the ladder of consciousness. He is offering us a quantum leap in our transformational process – one that could be just the shift we need in order to open beyond what we previously thought possible. Are you ready to enter this next stage of expanded awareness?
Before you go to bed, write your inquiry to Thoth on a piece of paper and place it under your pillow. Ask to receive clear guidance on this matter that you are able to understand and remember with ease and clarity. As you close your eyes, picture yourself walking slowly towards Thoth, a single step closer with every breath. In your hands you hold an offering to show your gratitude and respect. Your heart and mind are open. You are willing to accept his guidance and allow it to forever transform you. When you approach him, you bow your greeting and lift your palms to him to offer your gift. The rest is up to you….
