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

Magic Stream

Magic Stream: “Everything is connected through the universal flow of consciousness”

“Every experience you have seems to have its own life story, with a beginning; a middle; and eventually, and end. However, there is danger in seeing events as separate from one another, since in fact they are all part of a continuity and a greater evolution.

Like an ever flowing Magic Stream, your experiences filter through the whole world, one leading into another, informing and influencing still more. Inspiration, invention, and revelations rarely come to just one person. The collective awareness is a shared storehouse of potential. When you remember that you are a part of the fluid continuity of life, you become a channel for great inspiration. Allow the magic to flow through you and carry our dreams into reality. Your success will benefit many.

Magic Stream as Challenger: “If Magic Stream comes to you as challenger, it represents swimming against the current. There are times when effort and sheer willpower result in victory and celebration, but this is not one of them. You cannot force inspiration, and you cannot manufacture creativity, lest you borrow too heavily from others’ ideas. Neither can you make someone love you or orchestrate a series of events that might place you in a more favorable position.

Now is the time to drop the ‘trying’ and jump into the stream and float. Immerse yourself in the experience of being fully present with whatever is true for the moment. You will never step in the same river twice anyway.” *

~ By Colette Baron-Reid

Do not ignore the creative flow, especially right now. There are ideas coming to you and your ego may jump in talking you out of them. You may doubt your abilities or whether you are ready. But this is a time to experiment. Let the ideas flow and let your own creative juices flow up to meet them. See what comes to you and what formulates. Maybe it starts out as a hobby, past time or passion; it does not have to be your livelihood right away. But give yourself some space to expand on your ideas. Journal, write them down if you just can’t manage to take them on at this time, you can go back later on and add to your ideas. If you have the means to dive in and just do it, all the better, get in there and get your hands dirty!

These are the early stages of manifestation and it is important to let it flow so that you can get clear later on what exactly you wish to create. Be open and receptive and watch for signs. Let nature inspire you and spend some extra time outdoors admiring all the amazing creations of our Great Mother, Gaia.

Know that this creative process is necessary and will open doors for you, leading you in exactly the direction you need to go. Let the magic flow through you. Everything you desire is in the stream, in the flow. It is there for you, there to be received by you. You never have to swim upstream to get it; you simply have to trust in the process and go with the flow.

Namaste

The Cauldron

The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Cauldron, from the Tao Oracle, by Ma Deva Padma

The Cauldron: “The cauldron represents a bringing forth, from the depths of your being, an expression of your own vision and creativity. You are now ready to give birth to a dream that has been developing within you for some time. the moment is ripe to make a meaningful contribution, and your essential self has already begun to prepare you for the next step.

Within itself, your unique nature carries all you need to succeed – and your commitment is such that you will achieve the best possible results without compromising the integrity of your work or of your own being. When life reveals the path ahead, it is testifying to the timeliness of our creative vision and its potential to benefit others. The first whisperings of that “Go ahead!” may appear from within or in unexpected ways – as dreams, an insight sparked by a glimpse of something, or words overheard in a passing conversation. This existential green light is the culmination of a long gestation period that required patient perseverance on your part. Not only has it been a test of character, it has also reflected the depth of your own self-worth. We become integrated and mature by watching, waiting, and trusting that all these insights and impressions will be added to the cauldron and will, one day, be fully “cooked.” Trusting from your core that there is perfection in the timing of all things keeps the cauldron simmering nicely – and as time passes its fragrance begins to permeate every aspect of your life.

Learning to relax with life’s give and take, without imposing limits or calculating gains and losses, creates wisdom, compassion, and the ability to discern what is appropriate in even the most difficult circumstances. This sharpened awareness works in harmony with an intuitive knowing that immediately senses the correct means of approach, and who to approach when help is needed.

The Cauldron is wisdom that purifies the false, superfluous, and superficial, and shifts the emphasis from the mundane to the higher values that help us live in peaceful harmony with nature and each other. by defining and refining. The Cauldron increases our capacity for clarity by illuminating our virtues. Wisdom is luminous. When we live creatively in self-awareness and self-mastery, the resulting luminosity, merely by its presence, effortlessly exposes ignorance and darkness of all kinds.

Perceiving life as an invitation that only awaits your participation triggers a subtle dismantling of rigid thinking patterns that have created insecurity and fear of change. You are at a crossroads now. The path may not be visible, but you sense and welcome the first signs of the deep shift that is taking place. There may be a greater sense of freedom in your words and actions, and in how you relate with others.

Finally, you can appreciate the unique individual you are. Offering that uniqueness to others is the way to return something, in gratitude, to Existence. The more you give, the more you will continue to be rejuvenated. Your life can become your art, your prayer, your meditation. In its wisdom and abundance, Tao gently guides us to follow its course, and when we do so, it gives back a thousandfold.”*

~ By Ma Deva Padma

The cauldron is a representation of the true authentic essence of You. It is your heart and Soul, it is your life experience; the lessons, the love, the loss, the pain, the victories, the choices, mistakes and secrets. It contains all the moments; all the truth and all the illusions;  all the thoughts and feelings that make you… You! And where it is now is exactly where it is supposed to be, it has boiled away the unnecessary and made a magical brew of deep sacred wisdom, faith, trust, love and light. All your hopes and dreams, all your inspirations and aspirations are now slowly bubbling to the surface to be used for the Highest Good of All and your highest good.

This is magic; the this is where your inner Divinity shines through. It is a concentration of all the hard work and effort you have put in, all paying off. It is the abundance of the Universe shown in the smooth reduction of your elements of Being.

This is also a turning point. A point when you can reveal your true gifts, your previously hidden talents and your newly discovered self-worth. Doors are opening, opportunities abound.

Anything is possible now as you use delve into this cauldron of your very being: the culmination of  every lifetime, every lesson, every gift; across all time and space… all together finally….

Creating your pure and magical elixir which can be used to create and manifest your wildest dreams.

Laiste, Moon’s Daughter

Published March 21, 2016 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle
Laiste, Moon's Daughter, from the Faeries' Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Laiste, Moon’s Daughter, from the Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Laiste, Moon’s Daughter, from the Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

Laiste, Moon’s Daughter: “Light cast in shadows, Spiritual guidance, Illumination, Riddles”

“She is the bringer of light in the darkness, yet moonlight both reveals and conceals. Her bright faery hoof prints light the path ahead of you, guiding you through the dark. She is also one of the guides at the passages between the otherworlds and this one. It is she who, with her bright light, tends the Gate of Revelation, showing us the way through by illumination, while her sister, Epona’s Wild Daughter helps guide us through the Gate of Despair. Laiste’s gate is much more fun.

Yet, in the process of guiding us, Laiste may pull a veil of cloud across the face of her mother, the moon – and three steps later we fall into a bog. “That should wake you up,” she thinks, smiling wisely. She disapproves of sleep walking, which is something that most of us humans do a great deal of the time. The night contains too much magic and beauty and wisdom to walk through it unseeing. You may find her activities helpful, you may find them frustrating. How you take them is entirely up to you, but they are intended to help you awaken. Bear in mind that she does not trip us; she merely places an obstacle or a pitfall lin our path, and we, sleep walking and unaware, step right into it. We do not have to do that. As always, it is our choice.

Lasite wants us to be open to the great unknown, to mystical (not necessarily magical) experience that teach us an expanded way to relate to the multiverse, all of the worlds and dimensions together. She is daughter of the moon, but she is also an illumined child of Unity. Where the Losgunna, the Frog Queen, wishes you to get in touch with your subconscious and find the treasures there, Laiste hopes that you will reach for your higher self, your not-yet-realized cosmic wisdom. You know far more than you know you know.

There are places in ourselves that we may have feared because they are shadowed and unknown. We may imagine them full of monsters when, in fact, they are inhabited by joyful spirits. She wishes us to explore this terra incognita because that is where much of our potential and as yet unexplored wisdom lies. Laiste reaches into our deepest minds, opening long shut doors, illuminating and revealing the uncultivated ground of our being – our hidden senses and talents. She speaks to us in the language of symbols, as faeries often do, because words are so limited. Any one symbol may speak to us on many levels of consciousness and about many different aspects of being, if we speand time contemplating it. Laiste is a sphinx, and finding the answers to her profound riddles gives us keys to the multiverse.

If you are attending to your dreams and visions and studying every day occurrences, trying to discover the deeper levels of meaning in the symbols there, you are learning the language of Laiste. That language is spoken by artists, like Brian, and poets, whose works are informed by rich symbolism. Discovering it through study, through looking within ourselves, and through interaction with faeries not only teaches us the language of Faery, of art, and of high poetry, but is also gives us keys to our own psychic abilities and to the deep levels of our own psyches, where the Singers and the creative force of Unity are most easily found.

Through revelation and the ecstatic experience of the mystic, Lasite faces and leads us into the future. She prefers to let the old stuff of the past fade away in the illumination of insight and newly accessed wisdom.

You may be finding apparently random events and ideas are falling into a pattern and beginning to make sense to you. Things may be flowing more easily than you are accustomed to, and your decisions and choices may be bringing an unusually high degree of success. Psychic abilities- hunches, intuitions, foreknowings- are becoming clearer and making more sense. Trust the process.

Lasite also brings the psychic dreams, forelighting the future and illumining the present. These dreams often speak in symbols, as faeries are wont to do.”*

by Brian Froud and Jessica MacBeth

When the realm of Faery is involved as our guides, we are reminded to expect the unexpected! Faeries take their jobs seriously, but as they do so, they love to have a bit of fun while they are at it. They love to shake things up, and make us see things from a different angle; and they love to do it in a way that we simply cannot ignore! Obstacles or challenges may actually be doors to new opportunity as we are re-routed through interesting and amazing circumstances!

Buckle up!
