Daily Angel Oracle Card: Boundaries, from the Sacred Power Reading Cards, by Anna Stark, artwork by Louis Dyer

Boundaries: “Chase your dreams. Opportunities are endless.”

“Throughout our lives, we sometimes feel our movements are restricted. Whether it is our career, finances, relationship, travel or living arrangements, we need to grow as individuals. But we can only do that by breaking old molds and creating new experiences. There is so much potential within you, but you must be willing to be bold and brave.

Breaking barriers is only possible when you overcome your anxiety about moving past physical and emotional boundaries. While it may be comfortable and less risky to stay where you are, you have more opportunities on the other side of the wall. Having the confidence to step forward onto a new path might be a frightening or an exhilarating prospect. Have faith! For moral support, discuss these avenues and your emotions with close friends and family before making any decisions.

Right now, your soul is asking you to break away from traditional thinking, and to step outside the box to find solutions to the issues you are facing. The universe is encouraging your growth right now by giving you gentle nudges to explore new ideas.

Healthy emotional and physical boundaries are encouraged now. Establish your personal power by creating new boundaries to balance the give and take in relationships and personal connections.

New opportunities will arise, when you are ready to take that step forward. Take advantage of the opportunities when they come. You have the momentum to push forward with success now if you choose to do so.”

Affirmation: “I AM able to create healthy boundaries, supporting my personal growth and potential.”*

~ By Anna Stark

We are being asked to assess what boundaries have been in place that have been stopping us from reaching for our dreams. Boundaries can be a good thing; they can establish personal space and protect our energies, and these should always be in place and be respected. But boundaries can also create challenges and perceived limitations. We are talking about the latter here.

We are talking about a shift in perspective that allows us to see things from a different angle altogether. Like the Hanged Man card, sometimes we need to turn things right upside down in order to see a whole new way of being in the world. Note the image on the card. The man and the woman are able to come up with a solution to climb the wall; a simple ladder… and most importantly, the courage to go through with the plan. They are leaving their simple life for something more magical; the bright light of the castle beckons.

Why keep your dreams small? Why keep yourself small? Why not aim higher? Why not break out of the mold and leave your comfort zone to make your dreams a reality?

“New opportunities will arise, when you are ready to take that step forward. Take advantage of the opportunities when they come. You have the momentum to push forward with success now if you choose to do so.”

Anything is possible, focus your energy wisely.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Black Dragon, from the Dragon Oracle Card deck, by Diana Cooper, artwork by Carla Lee Morrow

Black Dragon: “Cocoons you so that your divine potential grows.”

“Meditate. Reflect. Undergo a metamorphosis.”

About Black Dragon: “Fifth dimensional black dragons are powerful. They only come to us when we are ready to nurture a new idea or concept that will enable our divine potential to grow.

Black is the ultimate divine feminine colour, the shade of mystery and magic, of secrets and hidden hopes. When we are prepared to surrender to the black dragons, they will cocoon us in silky black energy, and as we rest within this safe, dark place, they will enable the new to develop within us. Eventually we will emerge, like a butterfly, having undergone a profound metamorphoses.”

Guidance From The Black Dragon: “Choosing this card suggests it is time to rest, for it is during such moments of relaxation that divine projects, creative ideas or a new way of thinking are conceived. In times of peace and stillness, fresh seeds and ideas can grown.

The mighty black dragons wish to create a dark cocoon for you now so that the new can germinate and sprout. You are asked to accept their assistance, for it will serve your spiritual growth. Take time to meditate or reflect and the dragons will surround you with their breath. This will allow the opportunity that is being presented to you to take root.

When you are ready, the black dragons will help you to nurture the new growth. Ask them to help you hold your vision until it comes to glorious fruition.

They will also be working with you in your sleep state and you may be aware of their presence, so acknowledge their help.

Expect to be different and be ready to spread  your wings.”

~ By Diana Cooper

February is a month of things happening behind the scenes; beneath the fertile soil. Things growing in the dark, reaching up towards the light. A month of pure possibility, ruled by the energy of the new moon right in the middle. A window of opportunity to conjure our dreams into reality.

We are in creation mode now. Inward focus. Meditation. Contemplation. Drawing our dreams out into the light.

Planted seeds are germinating now, wings are growing, the cocoon is feeling snug. But we won’t feel constricted long. This phase is fleeting. Transformation is imminent. 

Take time to reconnect with the stars; appreciating their vast sparkling energy.

“Expect to be different and be ready to spread your wings.” I am  so ready for this, how about you? I Am ready to accept assistance in whatever form it comes to me. I Am open and receptive and allow change to happen in my life. I Am ready for the Black Dragon energy.

And so it is

Namaste

Spiritual Service

Published January 14, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Spiritual Service, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Spiritual Service, from the Lightworkers Oracle, by Alana Fairchild, artwork by Mario Duguay

Spiritual Service: “Self-doubt can be a habit that is hard to break. It can slow down your spiritual progress and the fulfillment of your life purpose. Ultimately, it will not stop you, but it can make your progress seem more challenging. It’s easier to fulfill your purpose when you acknowledge your own goodness and talent and do what you love to the best of your ability. Realize that you are enough, that your work is good and that you have something of value to offer. It is time to let go of fear of failure, concern about your ability and your right to live a happy and fulfilled life of success. The Universe believes in you.”

“You are being called to service beyond that which you have accomplished thus far. That is because you are ready, capable and willing to step up to another level of spiritual responsibility and freedom. Your mind, however, may question your ability. You may be afraid that you cannot perform well enough, that you are not skilled or experienced enough, that you are not as good as others or that you do not have enough value to offer. These are nothing more than wounded beliefs about your self worth. It is time to recognize this wounding and not empower these beliefs as truths anymore. Be kind to your mind. It will be happier without such beliefs. You can free yourself from the pain they cause and become more realistic about your gifts and your potential. Now it is time for you to trust love more than your wounds.

As you release these old beliefs, you create more space within you to receive impressions of how you can most joyfully serve the greater good. No longer hampered by undermining and draining beliefs in self-doubt you will have more energy to act on your intuition and guidance.

If at any time you find yourself blocked by fear or performance anxiety, it can be helpful to release these blocks by simply asking yourself how you could best serve the greater good at this time. The answer to this question will never be to shrink back in fear! It will always be to choose belief over doubt. It will be to move ahead. To take the opportunity offered to you as a vote of confidence form the Universe. This realization will bring you peace of mind so you can resume your progress and share what you have with the world.

If you have been working hard, taking the opportunities that have come to you and are still feeling as though you are not quite where you wish to be in terms of fulfilling your life purpose and divine destiny, you are now asked to acknowledge all that you have attained so far. Acknowledge all the people you have assisted in your own special way, all the positive influence of love that you have added to the collective human soul through your willingness to take your spiritual journey, open your heart and care about life on Earth. Your spiritual service has been noticed by the spiritual worlds, and you will be empowered to serve in increasingly beautiful ways. Your service is already successful and will only increase in potency, power and peace.”

Invocation: “Universe, I love you. How can I serve you? I accept love’s protection and love’s purpose in my heart, in my life. Love empowers and protects me, gives me purpose and passion, peace and play. I believe in love. I am love, and I believe in me! May the joy of helping others give me energy and courage to continue to serve and grow spiritually. May all beings receive your love and be healed through your grace. May all those who want to serve be empowered through mercy, compassion, joy and love to do so for the greatest good. Through my own free will, so be it.”*

~ By Alana Fairchild

The line that struck me most is “Trust love more than your wounds.” That is a powerful statement right there… and if you think about it, it really covers everything. Trust love more. Do not let your wounds lead the way. Remove the lens of past hurts and move forward, away from all that. Away from the past, away from the patterns, away from the pain.

Release the old. Create something new.

Do not be afraid of giving, of assisting, of shining your light in a world that very much needs it. It may feel dark and scary out there, but that is all the more reason to stand out, not to blend into the masses. You are needed. Remember why you are here. Remember who you are.

You have gifts unique to you. You have a vibration that can heal, uplift and create. You are a powerful lightworker and you are being asked to step forward and make a difference. It is time to step into your life purpose. We need you now.

Collectively, we are awakening… and we need to pull together all of our resources so that we can come together and be of Service. Eventually we might just realize the peril we are in if we continue on this path of destruction and chaos. We will realize that we are much more powerful than we have given ourselves credit for. We will turn away from the way things are being done, the way we are being controlled and we will rise up and make a difference.

A peaceful difference. A healing difference.

We will honour this beautiful planet we live on… and came here to help save. We will take care of each other. We will live sustainably. We will stop fighting and stop the heirarchy and the madness.

But for now, the first step is committing to our Spiritual Service. Putting our awakening first. Making changes daily. Taking charge of our reality.

The rest will follow.

And so it is that we change this world

Namaste

The Rarr

Published December 11, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Rarr, from the Faery Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Rarr, from the Faery Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

The Rarr: “Wild energy. Pure Potential”

“Once upon a time there were three pink boys (more or less) and a Rarr, who all played in Brian’s son Toby’s bedroom. They liked the midnight tea parties, the magical ambience, and of course, they liked Toby. Unfortunately, the Pink Boys got too rowdy, and Brian had to throw them out into the garden, which was where they belonged anyway. The Rarr learned from the experience in a rarrish way, and it quieted down a bit during the midnight hours.

Rarrs are not naughty or wicked, just energetic. They are also not very discriminating. They like to join into whatever excitement is going on and add energy to it. In a way, they are pure potential, and they potentize whatever is happening. Rarrs are attracted to mobs rioting and to meditation groups rising toward ecstasy and to any other strong energy states.

Rarrs are a bit like Tigger in the Pooh stories. They bounce, they zoom, they go off on wild tangents. (Brian hasn’t painted a Wild Tangent yet, as far as I know, but I know what they look like, having encountered more then my share).

Think of the rrarrr of a growling dog, the rrarrr of an engine revving up, the rrr of a purring cat, and the arrr in Arrrugh! As I say, Rarrs do not discriminate. It is up to us to do that. They put a live spark into whatever is happening. It is our choice what we do with it.”

Starter Reading: “A Rarr in your cards encourages you to be especially attentive to what you are dong with your energy and intentions. Do not get carried away by the Rarr’s bouncy enthusiasm, but do take advantage of the energy. You can accomplish a great deal with the energy being made available to you. This is a good time. Note that the Rarr is not grounded – and is not meant to be – but humans need to keep their feet firmly on the earth. When you encounter the Rarr, breathe slowly. Center. Earth yourself. Be clear about your objectives then go for them.”

As Challenger: “The Rarr as challenger indicates a terrible problem. Both the querent and the Rarr are losing (or have lost) control and are thrashing about in midair. Faery glamour and faery zaps are running wild. Illusions and delusions are rife. Misunderstandings escalate. A cold shower is definitely in order. Practice grounding exercises. Meditate. Back off and look at things coolly. This may not be enough, but please try.”*

~ By Jessica MacBeth

This card totally resonates with me. I think these little guys sneak into my house when my kids are starting to amp up at night and make them totally WILD! In fact, as I write this I can’t really believe just how much energy they have, and how hard it can be to get them to settle down. It is enough to make me stark raving mad. I’m pretty sure that if I found out that the Faeries got involved, things would make so much more sense. The missing piece of the puzzle.

Then maybe I could thank them for their efforts and return them to the garden! Way too exhausting to deal with that kind of energy inside, particularly in the evening.

But, that’s just me. I think there is more to this message. There is a bit of a warning here too. Not to get all caught up in the drama. Not to be impulsive. To use your energy wisely. There is great potential here for manifestation, so be careful what you wish for! Don’t be reckless, impatient and greedy, or you will be caught up in the vortex of disillusion. Wait it out. Plan it wisely. Wish for what is best for All.

Know that the energy of the Fae is a powerful force, and they can make amazing allies. But they also can be tricky, amplifying things into a frenzy. If you are already scattered and unclear, you could manifest a tough lesson instead of making a powerful choice. They will work with you either way.

Slow down and breathe deeply. Make a plan of action. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s and do your research. And then muster all your energy and enthusiasm and channel it into exactly what you wish to create. With grace and ease.

Namaste

Page Of Wands

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Page Of Wands, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

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

She of the Cruach

Published April 3, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

She of the Cruach, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: She of the Cruach, from The Faeries’ Oracle, by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

She of the Cruach: “The Receptive Principle, Nurturing, Fertility”

“This is the Great Goddess, the many named mother of All and all goddesses are attributes or aspects of Her. Her cup, the Cruach, overflows with bounty for all. She is the yin energy of the Universe – nurturing, compassionate, and wise. She gives form and brings into manifestation the will and life force of He of the Fiery Sword. His is the intention, the action, and hers is the manifest reality. In a sense, she is the Cruach holding all the worlds within her being.

One Oracle group member saw the Cruach as a great bowl, like a scrying tool for seeing past, present, or future potential, but filled with energy instead of water. Within it he saw a tower with a moon above it, a farmhouse, and many other bits and pieces of our world. He felt that if you dropped something in the water, these things would scatter out to become reality – archetypes manifesting everywhere. He said, ‘She is the woman who dreams, and her dreams are the worlds and all that is in them.’

Looking at this card, another Oracle group member also notes, ‘What I see here is the energy of being held lovingly in the palm of the hand of teh great goddess, followed by a relaxed sigh and release.”

She of the Cruach is the holder of all of our sorrows and all of our joys. Her Cruach, the miraculous chalice, is the womb of birth and the caldron of rebirth, the chalice of healing, the container holding the germinating seed. She is the body, the soul-shrine that holds the spirit and keeps it from being lost or dissipated in a formless fog. She is pattern and form in the abstract and in the specific. Within her we take form, grow, achieve fulfillment, and let go of that form to move on to the next phase of our being.

All of the universe, each individual particle, every being, is cherished by her.”

Starter Reading: “She of the Cruach may indicate a form of pregnancy, a necessary time of nurturing and of development. We need to be open to her overflowing grace. She may also indicate a need to allow her nurturing grace to flow through us to others in the form of unconditional love and giving and spiritual healing. She tells us of the need for unconditional receiving, of making the best of what we are offered. She also reminds us that unbounded love and grace is ours, just waiting to be accepted.

The presence of this card radiates comfort and nurturing.”

She of the Cruach as Challenger: “Like He of the Fiery Sword, and all of the other Singers, She does not have a challenger meaning as such. She fills the universe ans is available to all. Challenger here speaks of her archetypal energy blocked or unaccepted by the querent or another involved in the issue. The Question we need to ask ourselves is ‘How may I free this energy of acceptance and nurturing in my life and allow it to flow through me?’*

~ By Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Another gift from the land of Faery, how blessed we are to receive it. The Divine Feminine comes to us now, as the Divine Masculine has done; in order to assist us in our time of healing and transformation. We are being asked to be receptive to the love that is on offer to us now; Unconditional Love met with Unconditional Receptivity. This is the balm to our wounded hearts; this will bring our strength back, and give us the courage to go on.

Plant your seeds (thoughts, intentions, goals, hopes and dreams) with care and know that they are being tended to and nurtured for you. Know that they are nurtured, supported and loved into Being. For the Divine Mother is the creator of the manifest reality. She is the holder of space for all of our dreams to come true. In her infinite womb she holds pure potential; it is our job only to learn to receive it.

This is the perfect time to set up an alter outside in honour of these sacred beings; He of the Fiery Sword and She of the Cruach. A Faery ring containing flowers and crystals and sacred objects that hold importance to you. Set it up with reverence, with gratitude and with joy; knowing that you are blessed in ways that will unfold before your eyes very soon. Embrace this time of fertility and have patience for the gestation of your dreams to come to fruition.

And so it is

Namaste

Dee
