The Lord Of The Shadows

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Lord Of The Shadows, from the Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, Artwork by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Lord Of The Shadows: “This is a card of change, moving from shadow into light. Some things that have hampered this change are put aside to make the transition possible. The God of Nature in his aspect of The Lord Of The Shadows, ruler of the underworld, pauses in the shadows of the forest to watch an elderly man with his grandson walk away from a well with a full bucket of water. In early times the well was a metaphor for life force energy, the magical waters of life that sustained one’s creative spirit and joy of being. The man and child show the generations that flow from the water of life, the satisfaction of a life well lived under the bright light of the Sun.

The Lord Of The Shadows, with an air of patience and kindness, holds in his hand a twig of yew. His presence suggests a life in transition, with the obstacles to transformation being cleared away. There needs to be a clean sweep for the right changes to come to fruition, for only in this way is there progress and improvement. Sometimes this comes as a matter of course in one’s life. Refusal to accept a new outlook may engender a loss of hope, stagnation, or a lack of growth. It is from the cleansing that new optimism arises, removing negative influences and allowing positive ones to enter. Old situations give way to new ones, and the past is left behind as a person moves on, released from prior commitments.

As with Samhain, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest and all worlds are linked in hallows, there is a quiet knowing with this card that cleansing is taking place in one’s life and there is an opportunity to commune with the inner self. From this comes the insight needed to release negativity and take steps toward a positive change and new direction.

The yew tree, with its red berries, represents the underworld, change, rebirth, and renewal. A luna moth, for transitions and moving towards the light, flies gracefully from the shadows towards the sunlit countryside.”

Card Meaning: “Change, moving from the shadow into the light, finding new meaning in life, a turning point in life, optimism, removal of obstructions, creating positive changes, new outlook and actions replace the outmoded.”

As Challenger: “Stagnation, Immobility, Resistance to Change, Self Evaluation Needed.”

Prompt Words: “Change, Transformation, Turning Point for Improvement.”*

At first glance we worry that this card may be of darkness, not of light. But then we look deeper and find its true meaning. This is a coming out of the darkness and into the light. Profound change and transformation on the heels of the big lunar energies of yesterday. Stepping into a new month.

Something is falling away right now. Are you clinging on tightly afraid to experience the new? Or are you surrendering with grace and ease? It is happening either way, your reaction is up to you. Meet it with struggle or embrace it. Free will gives you either option; you choose. You take responsibility.

Doors closing and doors opening. Cleansing and clearing and purging to create the space for something new. In order to maximize it, simply allow yourself to ride the waves and receive it in all it’s mysterious and magical glory.

And so it is

Namaste

The Star

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Star, from The Green Witch Tarot, by Ann Moura, art by Kiri Ostergaard Leonard

The Star: “The card of the lucky Star shows there is energy abounding for a fortuitous opportunity to arrive through which one’s hopes and dreams can be manifested. The seven-pointed Faery Star represents the harmony of Land, Water, Sky, Moon, Sun, Stars and Magic. Beneath the Star, the Goddess is revealed in her aspect of Faery Queen, pouring out the waters of life to invigorate and encourage positive changes. She opens the way and offers the chance for a joyful transformation in one’s life, yet leaves it up to the individual to take advantage of this. The card indicates that the prospects are excellent for making a change in one’s life, moving in the direction one has desired but has not yet attained.

Whether one chooses to take advantage of the opportunity can be influenced by the other cards in the reading that may offer helpful clarification. The waters spilled from silver urns into the river and into a gazing bowl for divination suggest that one can gauge the future impact of taking up the opportunity. The Queen stands in the river, indicating that some solutions to problems reside in the subconscious mind. The Star implies that planetary or universal energies are in a favorable alignment at the time of the reading, and the addition of faerie influence provides an aspect of wishes granted through the blessings of devas and other world entities.

There is optimism and hope in this card, which is always an omen of good fortune and bringing desires into reality. The universe will provide the opening to push matters in a favorable direction for accomplishing what is most sought. The energy is gathered in one’s favor. and is ready to be utilized to carry out a goal.

Action should not be delayed any longer than necessary when the opportunity presents itself, for there is no indication of when this will happen again. Trust in the universe, the Divine, and one’s own intuition is suggested. Saint John’s wort, for faeries, magic, luck and power, grows along the riverbank. A goldfish, a symbol of opportunity and balance, leaps joyfully out of the invigorating waters.”

Card Meaning: “An opportunity to manifest hopes and dreams, inspiration, creativity, talent recognized, positive energy, unexpected help, new ideas, gain a wish, positive future, bright prospects, chance to start over.”

As Challenger: “Disappointment, doubts, distrust, insecurity, letting opportunities pass.”

Prompt Words: “Opportunity, hopes obtainable.”*

~ by Ann Moura

The only barrier to your success is anything you believe can stop you from moving forward. Other than that, the coast is clear. Anything is possible.

The Star is a card of a special magic the superstitious call ‘luck’. But really there is no such thing as luck is there? It is about claiming your power and using it for the Highest Good of All, to create something sacred and miraculous. It is about becoming the powerful manifestor you have always been. It is about moving out of the limits of the three dimensional consciousness and into the fourth and beyond, where there is absolutely no doubt that anything is truly possible.

The Star is full of Light. The Star leads our way. The Star is a coming together; the collective, the One that is All. It is faith and it is gratitude and it is Love. It is dreams fulfilled and it is opportunities grasped. It is connected to our crown chakras; our channel of divine communication with our Higher Selves.

Take this as yet another sign that things are changing. Doors are opening. Do not fear necessary change, for with it comes the blessings.

Namaste

Empowerment: “Rely on your inner strength to ensure your dreams are realized”

“The blessing of Ganesha is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible and reliable. The energy from this card is a feeling of optimism and positive energy. Dreams and long term goals are becoming a reality. If you have been lethargic or unmotivated, take time to tune into your personal power.

Yellow is associated with the solar plexus chakra, which is the third chakra. This chakra is considered to be at the core of your being, your power center. Here is the home of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, and your personality. Ganesha is showing you that there is an important purpose for you in this lifetime on Earth. You are awakening to your personal power and the memory f yourself as a soul. Your healing will be complete when you see the light of your soul and know that light is who  you truly are.

Every time you criticize yourself, you weaken your resolve. Loving and accepting yourself, and acknowledging your value are the foundation of a balanced solar plexus. When the solar plexus chakra is in balance, you are confident and empowered with a healthy level of self-esteem. You have respect for yourself as well as respect for others. You have a strong sense of self and your personal power and you use it responsibly.

Be confident in your talents. Love yourself. Be willing to powerfully express yourself. Choose to be direct with your desires at this time. If you are asking about a decision, all indications are that the time to act is now.”*

~ By Angela Hartfield

When we find our true inner power, it will set us free. When we no longer feel the need to control or dominate others. When we feel that we are completely equal to all other forms of life on this planet and beyond. When we see our own true divinity within ourselves, and know that we are absolutely worthy. When we meet others and there is only Love, only receptivity. This is when we know that finally we are empowered.

We are sovereign beings, each and every one of us. Yet we have been told by society that we are not. We are told that we must obey, we must live by the rules that have been given to us by those in ‘higher’ positions. All illusion of course. As we learn to take our power back, we realize that power is not at all what we had once perceived it to be. Power is not being a bully, it is not being stronger physically, or abusive mentally. Power is not something to be wielded but something to be centered in; balanced.

We are reaching a tipping point, and the shift is going to be huge. The biggest landslide you can imagine. The power is going back to the peaceful warriors.

And with it, standing together, we will rule the world.

You haven’t seen nothing yet!

Namaste

The Velvet Queen

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Velvet Queen, from the Divine Circus Oracle Card deck, by Alana Fairchild

The Velvet Queen: “A rare prize is to be bestowed upon you. The universe is confirming that the most luscious dreams of your heart are being nurtured into manifestation. To this end, you shall be given a saving grace, an intervention if need be. To be open to receive, surrender doubt in favour of unconditional trust. Through your trust and optimism, you make it easier for the universe to give you a most deserved gift.”

“A rare prize is worth the effort to attain it. Your efforts will need to include loving discipline. Loving discipline is not about trying to bend the world according to your will but rather about readying yourself to align with the spirit of what you want to receive.

To receive, rather than attempt to take by force, requires strength, trust, spiritual intelligence and courage. It is easier to try and force things from a fearful place, but it is more effective and empowering to learn how to attract and receive through consciously chosen surrender. This allows the universe to do its best work for you!

To surrender is not about passivity, but doing all we can do and then trusting life enough to let go and allow the outcome to be what it will. Surrendering is not giving up. It’s about trusting that there is a great and generous intelligence expressing itself through our lives, and if open to it, great treasures are bestowed upon us.

So the discipline spoken of here is about changing your consciousness. It asks you to release issues around self-worth. Why should you not be empowered and assisted by the universe to create a life that fills you with joy and feels ‘just right’ for you? Of course you should, can and will be! Release any lack of self-worth that would get in the way of your opening in complete trust to the universe.

The Velvet Queen assists in shifting the mind from scarcity to prosperity consciousness where we feel we can receive precious gifts with an easy open attitude, neither holding on to them out of fear, nor pushing them away out of shame or guilt. When she enters your life, she brings a sign of abundance headed your way. This might manifest itself in many and varied ways: in financial wealth; in career opportunities; increased love and affection in your relationships; or as a sense of living in the rich fullness of life, spiritually as well as emotionally and materially.

She also indicates a prize that is worth attaining. It is said that the sweetest fruit is at the top of the tree and therefore worth the climb. The Velvet Queen lets you know that your most prized dream is within reach, through a combination of letting life unfold as it will and your own disciplined efforts. Don’t give up. You cannot make the fruit on the tree grow faster – that will happen according to the rhythm of life – but you can certainly do your part to be ready to climb the tree at the right moment to savour the sweetness of success.”

Healing Trick: “To help you take the wisdom offered and put it to best use in your life now, do this healing trick to clear obstacles to putting this guidance into place.

Say the following statement aloud:
“I release all fears and judgments I have ever made, in this or any lifetime, about material possessions, fear of loss, fear of greed, fear of distraction and fear of attachment. I open my hands and heart to receive all I need, when I need it, for as long as I need it, to live my beautiful and unique life path.”
You are now going to visualize, imagine, feel or pretend that you can breathe in and out through your entire body. You can inhale deeply not only through your mouth or nose, but also through your skin.
As you inhale gently, you take in the gift of life. As you exhale gently, not only out of your mouth and nose, but also out of the pores of your skin, you easily release what you no longer need (even if you don’t consciously know what that is).
Do this for several moments.
When you feel relaxed and clearer, say this statement three times:
‘I receive a sweet and rare prize designed to be mine,
Through the power of love divine.’
You have finished your healing trick.”

Affirmation: “Say the following affirmation aloud to boost the power of this message and to integrate it into your body, mind and soul. You can say it morning and/or evening for a few days, or even a few months, or just at the end of your healing trick.
‘I am strong and have surrendered into the perfection of life’s loving grace.’*

Again we are put on notice of wonderful gifts coming our way from the Universe! And again we are reminded not to block them through fear, self-doubt, feelings of lack or feelings of low self-worth.

Become the magnet for what you desire to create. Live in faith. Trust in the Universe to provide. Know that you are worthy. Know that you are Divine. Know that what you desire most; what you dream of, is possible. It may not come in the form that you think, but it will come. And it will be better than you ever thought possible!

Dream. Be. Trust. Believe. Know in your heart that it is coming to you as you read this.

And so it is

Namaste

Ten Of Chalices

Daily Angel Oracle Card:  Ten Of Chalices, from The Sirian Starseed Tarot Card deck, by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Ten Of Chalices: “How much better can it get than the Ten Of Chalices? Like the endless flow of Niagara Falls, the emotional waters of your being flow unrestrained and free. Nothing is held back; nothing is hidden. All is optimism, joy and freedom to be and to feel, celebrating the wonder of the human experience – the vastness of our extraordinary capacity to feel emotion in all its diversity.

To the querent, this is a card of bliss! One is reminded of the expression, “My cup runneth over” when observing the free flow of the waters of the soul in this light filled, positive key.

It needs very little interpretation. Congratulations! Your life is filled with wonder and you get it! You feel the joy, the prosperity, and the contentment of all that is right about the world.

Are you aware of all you have created and how the world is unfolding through hour own manifestation? Are you feeling the magnificence of this moment in your life? How are you sharing your joy with others? Do you give thanks for all that flows into your life?”*

~by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha

Wow! After a bit of a rocky ride, the clouds part and the sun shines through! Take this moment to revel in the rainbow after the storm, every bright and vivid colour right there before you in high definition. It seemed as though the storm would never stop, that you would be sucked into it forever losing yourself and your place in the world. Then, just as suddenly as it began, it disappated, leaving the sun shining and the mist rising from the fields.

Everything seems more colourful today, every detail visible. Even the birds sound happier. The heaviness has lifted, people are feeling better today, and anything seems possible. What will the Universe present you with? Maybe there is an unexpected gift on it’s way to you now, perhaps a prayer will be answered, a wish granted, a miracle bestowed. Keep your senses on high alert for something wonderful; a windfall or a turnaround in healing is possible now.

Stop right now and make a short list of all the wonderful things, people and experiences you would love to welcome into your present life. Don’t look too far into the future, and don’t let your ego tell you that certain things take time and that you must wait or that you are not ready. Just write them down, knowing that as you do so, you are co-creating abundance, joy, peace, prosperity, success, health, wealth, happiness and fulfillment.

The sky is the limit, there is no holding back. You are making magic with the opportunities being presented to you, and it will take you on a wild ride if you allow it. Surrender to all the good that you deserve to receive in your life now, meet it with open heart and open mind. Embrace it with gratitude and share it with the world.

Namaste

Freyr: “Abundance, Peace, Contentment”

“Your integrity has led to healing and unity, which gives you vast potential, and this surge of energy brings with it the ability to prosper, a continual flow of energy to be invested. Being at one with who you are destined to be can also lead to the power to create good fortune for yourself. This abundance, which will come lovingly and safely, can result in a time where you take your place in the world.

You are now at home with your sensitivity, your psychic abilities, and you are able to help the world simply through being yourself, who you are at your core, and using your beautiful, innate, intuitive talents. You are in tune with this new earth energy. We all have this capacity – regardless of age, religion, race, creed, family background, and our own issues, every human has the chance to change into a person with a higher purpose.  When we live from that place, we are truly peaceful, content, and abundant. We are like children coming home when we move into this energy and embrace this planet, for the planet in her turn embraces us, and showers us with gifts.

You are one of the leaders of this change, one who shows the way, from the light they share each day in simple ways. You are a wonderful person with a divine mission. You are important to the planet. You are moving into a time of physical health, joy, enthusiasm and the wonderful energy of optimism. Strong and joyful, others will embrace the examples you offer at this time.”

Right on the heels of Lady Fortune herself comes the Elven King himself, the Freyr, with news of abundance, success, wealth, health and prosperity. How can it get any better than this? All that hard work really is paying off! you have found your niche, your place in the world. What you have to offer, others have been looking for; a perfect match.

It is your attitude that has helped you get this far, the trust, surrender and faith that the Universe will provide. And it is providing! Meet this amazing windfall with a heart full of peace, joy, gratitude, and fulfillment. Bask in the glory of perseverance; slow and steady action towards your dreams. This is co-creation in it’s finest form. You have mastered your intention, honed your focus and used the valuable gift of your imagination to visualize your dreams coming true, and here they are, coming to you in ways that you did not even dare to imagine.

There is no limit what is possible during this amazing window of opportunity; do not leave any door unopened, any stone unturned. Embrace life in every possible aspect, with a smile on your face, a skip in your step and a hug ever at the ready.

Your time is NOW.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: New Life, from the Wisdom Of The Oracle card deck, by Colette Baron-Reid

New Life ~ Essential Meaning: “Birth of new ideas; growth; opportunities; a breath of fresh air; life renewing itself.”

The Oracle’s Message: “When spring awakens the world, joy and excitement can be felt all around and in your very core. Blossoms burst from trees overnight, birds return home and sing their glorious song, and nature is full of promise. Miracles beckon all of us. This is one of those times in our life when new ideas inspire you and new opportunities bring you hope for seeing your dreams come true. All is well in your world, and you have the energy you need to feel renewed. Allow your heart to fill with enthusiasm. Let your light shine, for this is a time of good fortune.”

Relationship Message: “New energy enters old relationships, and new relationships are bursting with the sweetness and vibrancy only encountered when winter gives way to spring. This is a time to connect with others and share excitement, passion, and hearts full of joy. This card is a very auspicious sign with respect to love and partnerships in all forms.”

Prosperity Message: “You have every reason to be optimistic right now, as things seem to fall into place magically. New opportunities  remind you that abundance is available to you. Delight in the bounty that begins to appear in surprising forms. Stay curious and know that your hopes and dreams are being fulfilled. It’s as if new life suddenly infuses your projects, work, and creative ideas with a kind of electricity that crackles with exciting potential. Fortune is smiling on you.

Protection Message: “You must acknowledge your inexperience and gently allow yourself to be like the delicate new bud opening. It’s okay to admit you may not know something. You are at the beginning of things and haven’t yet hit your stride. Be immersed in the newness of it all, and do not try to rush the learning process. New life has its own timetable for maturity. Be here now. Life loves you.”*

~by Colette Baron-Reid

You may feel like Sleeping Beauty, finally waking up after a long winter’s nap. The year started out with some pretty heavy energies, and it has been building for the last five months. We have had changes in every aspect of our lives: physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, relationship, career, home… you name it and ,you or someone close to you, has gone though it! It’s been exhausting, painstaking, tedious, heart wrenching, exhilarating, shocking and mind boggling to say the least, and there were some days when we all wondered what we were even doing here on this physical realm with all its challenges and surprises.

We made shifts on a deep cellular level, waking up our DNA, and opened our energy centers to become One with the Universe. We have kicked all our old belief systems to the curb, releasing all that no longer serves us (and if you haven’t, get on it, there’s more to gain than to lose, trust me!!) We have honed our creative abilities, and are experiencing instant manifestation (whether we realize it yet or not, it’s here… NOW!)

These are magical times and we are lucky to be here, with a new chapter opening right in front of us. Brand new stories to be told. Brand new canvases to be painted.

The sky is the limit.

It is time to reinvent ourselves. Grab life by the …. steering wheel (or whatever you like…;o)

And get out there and be amazing!

Namaste

Dee
