Page Of Wands: “With confidence and a childlike joy, she plays her instrument, sending forth her message. The cadences dance in swirling melodies, a song of confidence and assurance. The strident beats mark a quick tempo that is irresistible to any who hear it. She smiles, knowing that she is the center of attention as she draws our all the creatures of the woods. Excitement fills the air, and breathless exuberance.

From ether and the nether-realms,
From sea and skies, come to my side!
I summon all to heed this call:
come flock to me! Come run, swim,
Stride!

Page Of Wands is creative and passionate. She is witty, charismatic, and outspoken with her philosophy. She knows her mind and is direct and forthright when she has an opinion. She may be a teacher, eager to pass on that kernel of knowledge that she possesses. She is the fiery spark of initiative, inventive, and she dares you to delve within and seek out the opportunities that may be frightening but have so much potential. Sometimes the actions that push you to the limits of comfort are the most rewarding. She tells you to do and not sit there with only mute desire. Action is what is important. Can you hear her song ringing in your ears? Can you hear its sweet seduction singing with the voice of impulse?”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Creation, manifestation, passion and incentive are all the messages of today’s card. It is about doing, being, advancing, expanding; there is no procrastination here. It is about quick wits and intuition; following your gut instincts and taking colourful and creative action.

Solar Plexus and Sacral chakras are most important now too: confidence, will power, self-belief, self-worth and self-esteem; sensuality and sexuality are all important factors in our lives now. We have the ability to step fully into our true authentic selves. We have the opportunity to align with our dreams and use our deepest passions to paint the canvas of our reality.

Music, art, poetry, wisdom and self-expression all play a part here. Get your creative juices flowing by doing whatever it is that you love to do. In your own unique way of doing it. Communication, teaching, and clarity of vision are key factors to the manifestation of your reality. Make a vision board, research that trip you are dying to go on and print off the info, pin it to your fridge. Look into taking or teaching a course or class. Sign up for a workshop and learn something new.

And most importantly, create with love and with joy. Create with passion and vitality. Infuse love into every aspect of your creation; always leaving space for more and more.

And so it is

Namaste

The Moirae ~ Destiny

Published July 29, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

Possum ~ Opportunity

Published July 9, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Possum ~ Opportunity, from the Animal Dreaming Oracle Card deck, by Scott Alexander King, illustrated by Karen Branchflower

Possum ~ Opportunity: “Possum inspires us to see opportunity in any condition and to productively harness all opportunities to our best advantage; to gently ride on the back of any circumstantial generosity afforded us until  we are comfortable established, after which retreat should be executed in an honourable and discreet manner.

To take opportunity by the horns when it is offered is to believe one hundred percent in your total worth and life purpose. To act on every thought and to honour every possibility as potential for growth is what separates successful people from ordinary folk.

Possum urges us to see our life as a foundation on which great things can be initiated. He encourages us to seek out new experiences and attempt new things. Although  the Possum is ideally suited to living in the hollows of trees, the idea of squatting in the roofs of human dwellings poses no moral dilemma for him at all.

If Possum has ambled into your cards today, you are being asked to remember who you are and what agreements you made with yourself before commencing your Earth Walk. What did you want to achieve? Where did you see yourself ultimately?

Pay close attention to the opportunities afforded you at this time, for new ways to develop your abilities and to enhance your growth are on offer right now. Identify and discard all feelings of self-doubt – they simply keep you from furthering your skills and employing your talents to the best of your ability.

Possum’s appearance heralds the chance to better yourself and to take your knowledge deeper. Opportunity knocks for those alert to its presence. So long as you are willing to work hard and apply yourself, it is acceptable to gently ride on the back of any opportunity that is presented to you. The wealth locked within the authentic self is filled with great possibility and all it takes is the courage to access it and birth it into the light of day.

Possum’s appearance in your cards may also mean that you have a freeloader in your midst – someone who is taking advantage of your generosity. The best way to expel a Possum from your roof is to install a sensor-light. Nocturnal by nature, Possums hate bright light, so with lights turning on at the slightest movement they will quickly find an alternate dwelling. Using a similar approach, to illuminate your squatter’s sponging ways, visualize their light turning on (and staying on) whenever they enter their bedroom. They will soon find it impossible to stay as a result.”*

~ By Scott Alexander King

Again we are reminded to go within and honour our true authentic Self; our Soul self. What did it come here to do in this lifetime? And most importantly, are you doing it? If not, be aware that an opportunity is coming to you now. This opportunity will put you back on your path. If it seems like it is auspicious and wonderful, you are ready to take things in a new direction, you have done the work and you are ready to move forward. If a challenge arrives, look closely at why this is challenging… where is the silver lining? What are you holding on to that you needed to release but have refused?

Know that when lessons come as challenges it is often because we have not been taking the easy ones! We have either ignored them or been unaware, or we have defied them insisting on staying put where we are. Well, as usual, the Universe… and Your higher self, has other plans!

Possum is not just about opportunity, but he is also an opportunist. He will happily jump out of his comfort zone to get in the flow when an opportunity presents itself. It’s instinct, fast paced decision making on the fly. Trusting your intuition and going for it before the window closes. And this is where the plot twists. If this doesn’t sound like a personal message for you, then it becomes a friendly warning to watch those who are in your life right now. Is someone riding your coat tails? Is someone taking more than they are giving? If so, then it’s time to cut them loose. It’s time for you to take your opportunities without them draining your energy or distracting you from your purpose. Only you will know.

Namaste

Page of Pentacles

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law Artwork by Barbara Moore

Page of Pentacles: “Opportunity slumbers like the dragon upon whose crest the Page of Pentacles rests. Dreams and visions vibrate along its emerald length. They rise up through the soles of the feet of any who tread upon that viridian path, transmitted from the leviathan’s sleeping mind – dreams of success and of being able to possess material comfort and stability. She knows those visions that the dragon offers – a wondrous garden of delights. She is the keeper of that garden, dedicated to it’s preservation.

The Page of Pentacles comes bearing her message for opportunities of growth and prosperity. It is a small spark she holds, but she is just the harbinger for potential. Make of that spark what you will – a mere smoldering coal or the blaze of a rising star – but that choice and vision is something that each individual must find on their won, using the skills and resources at hand.

She is trustworthy, diligent, studious, and embraces scholarship. She is practical, down to earth, one who reflects before acting but at the same time is unafraid to embrace a world of physical enjoyment. She is lighthearted and joyous, and her spirit is entwined with everything around her.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Just as the sleeping dragon is dreaming the dreams of possibility, we can use our vision and our imagination to dream our creations into reality. It may not seem like a powerful tool, but it is just as powerful as the dragon is upon waking; upon taking flight. Perched above the dragon is the owl, symbol of magic, mystery and intuition. The Faery folk watch in awe from a careful distance, knowing the full power of the dragon could be awoken at any moment.

Opportunity can be subtle, an invitation to explore the realms beyond your comfort zone; a dream starting to form around the edges of your conscious mind. Maybe it comes looking exactly like something that scares you, makes you cringe… yet if you took it in small consistent steps it would be easier than you think. Maybe it is something that does not at first seem like an opportunity; you don’t feel like going, you have other plans, you want to stay home and go to bed with a good book. No more hiding your head in the sand.

Know that dedication and commitment are key here. What do you want to create in your reality? Where are your thoughts, feelings and intentions focused? What do you believe is possible? Have more than a mustard seed of faith in yourself and this process. Know that your limitations are but illusions; that which seems insurmountable is actually just smoke and mirrors.

It is time to awaken the dragon.

Namaste

Knight Of Chalices

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

Milk And Honey

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Milk And Honey, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle, by Colette Baron-Reid, Artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia

Milk And Honey: “The taste of prosperity; opportunities born of authenticity; nurturing abundance; trusting that your needs will be met.”

The Oracle’s Message: “You have entered a sweet time in your life, enjoying the ‘land of milk and honey’ that everyone wants to experience. It is an interlude that feels more languid than ambitious, when all your senses are awake to the unlimited possibilities in the universe. These times are precious and only come when you are in your authentic zone, ‘wearing the world as a loose garment,’ not wanting, yet about to be nourished in ways both tangible and subtle. Abundance is an energy that you are a living part of. All your needs are being met. You are given the gift of nourishment in every form.”

Relationship Message: “Sensuality, connection and passionate romance between lovers; sweet moments of understanding; and love among friends and family are all here for you to savor now. Your heart’s calling will be answered. Let your thoughts and feelings be sweet with gratitude and you will be nourished with the honey of abundance.”

Prosperity Message: “There is only one authentic you. This version of your Self is Spirit’s emissary in the world. When you are in alignment with the truth that you are a unique expression of the Divine, your ego can rest and your Soul can illuminate your purpose. Now is the time when you are seeking your true north. When you find this direction,  you automatically step into prosperity and the world brings you evidence of abundance. Miracles are a choice and a way of seeing the world. With every choice you make right now, you have the potential to seize good fortune and embrace your destiny. Opportunities will lead you to your best life now. Be open to them. You are getting a sweet taste of what you want.”

Protection Message: ” A nameless unease compels you to turn to pleasure and comfort as a means to escape that is really going on. It works in the moment, but only fleetingly – before the feelings return and you need to re-up until you are exhausted. Feeling worse than before, you may continue struggling… or you may see the light and choose to surrender to Spirit. Now is the time for practicing extreme self-care. If you can, do so before you engage in behaviours you will regret later. You are so loved, so cared for. Feel love and compassion for yourself. Turn your troubles over to the Divine for healing. That is all that counts right now.”*

~By Colette Baron-Reid

We are entering the third month of 2017 with a message of prosperity, abundance, and miracles! This is great news!

The energies are shifting again and anything and everything is possible at this time. Over the next month, you will have several opportunities to expand in new directions. Watch for new people entering your life; watch for invitations to events, classes or workshops you have not before attended; and watch for doors being opened for you in various aspects of your life, both personally and professionally.

Things could look really different at the end of this month if you allow them to, it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone, bypassing fears and grabbing the bull by the horns… quite literally.

The slogan for this month could be “Go for it!” Remember we are shaping the next nine year cycle all year in 2017; whatever directions we go and choices we make will affect us for years to come. Do not sit quietly waiting for life to happen “to” you while doing the same routines, being around the same people and staying in the same ruts.

Start with a big shift in what you believe to be possible and run with it from there; the snowball starts from inside us, our thoughts, beliefs and intentions. As we focus our energy we start the momentum. As we say YES to the Universe, we get the ball rolling. As we take new opportunities and create a new life for ourselves, the snowball takes on a life of it’s own, growing and growing. The possibilities are endless.

Take your world and use it to create your dreams.

For the Highest Good of All and so it is.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Goals, from The Oracle Of Visions, by Ciro Marchetti

Goals: “Dedication, Process”

“When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life”
~ Greg Anderson

“In a larger metaphysical sense, our journey through life is said to be full of transformation from an imperfect, corruptible state towards a perfect, healthy and everlasting state. What does not kill us makes us stronger. Thus painful or difficult changes that we endure can in theory burnish us in a spiritual sense to a high, golden shine. We can also seek out knowledge, opportunity and challenge; it is not necessary to merely allow life to happen to us.

In this scene, an Alchemist serves as an analogy for striving to achieve an end goal through study, experimentation, dedication and perseverance. His facial markings trace the beginning and end points of his quest from base lead through its various stages of purification of the soul to gold. The symbol for gold appears in the center of his forehead, where the Third Eye chakra is perceived to be.

This card is a reminder to stay focused on the goal and to continually apply the required self-discipline. It will all be worth it in the end.”*

 ~ By Ciro Marchetti

Be mindful that there may be people or situations around you at this time that trigger you. They may trigger sadness, pain or fear; they may trigger worry or self-doubt. These are all coming up for a reason, they are little hurdles along your journey; challenges that you must learn to turn from lead to gold in order to move forward. When you are feeling triggered, suddenly stressed or frustrated or angry or sad, instead of stuffing it and putting on a mask, look at the situation with detachment and compassion. What did the person do or say to trigger you? Why are you allowing yourself to feel triggered by this? What other reactions are possible at this time? What lesson was learned from the past experience that holds the power to trigger you? How do you release yourself once and for all from the ties that have bound you to this lesson? Once you gain clarity you can find a way to bless, release and move forward.

This is a great time for journaling, getting it all out on paper can give you perspective and is a much more powerful tool than seeking advice or complaining to friends or loved ones. When we write it all out, we force ourselves to see the problem from all angles, and then we are also called to use our own deep wisdom to solve it. When we allow ourselves the time and space to do this, we can listen to our own heart’s to guide us, rather than being guided by someone else. We take control, and we heal ourselves.

Do not let yourself get off course, this is only a speed bump, and you are being challenged for a reason. When you solve this, and truly learn to let it go, you will never be triggered by it again. This is one step closer to your manifestation.

Stay the course on your quest, Spiritual Warrior.

Become the Alchemist.

Namaste

Dee
