Ngetal Reed:
“Northern Hemisphere Dates: September 5th – October 2nd
(Southern Hemisphere Dates: March 5th – April 2)
Totems: Owl, Pike
Deities/Guides: Goddesses of the Hunt, like Athena and Artemis, and the Crone Aspect of the Goddess, like Hecate and Lilith
Letter: NG
Class: Shrub
12th Lunation
Celebration: Autumn Equinox, September 20/21 (March 20/21)”

Keywords: “Direct action, movement, focus, intention, conviction, on purpose, progress, skill, becoming a hollow reed.”

The Ngetal Reed initiates in the twelfth lunation of the year and the autumnal equinox, also known as Mabon and Alban Elved. We celebrate the harvest, now. Thus, we honour completions and also prepare for the coming of winter. This portal calls for direct action towards the month in which we can set and deliver our last intentions for the year’s ending. The double helix of our DNA is a symbol for this portal. Reed includes grasses, bamboo, cattails, and other plants with long, hollow shoots. The ogham for Reed is Ngetal and the letter NG.”

Ngetal Reed in a Reading: “When you get Reed in a reading, it is time to focus on a desired outcome and take action. If you are looking for a job, make calls and set up appointments. If you are working on a project, set up your itinerary and get busy. Today is the day.

Set your intentions and back them up with daily affirmations. Ask your community for help and seek out those who will support you. Call upon those who are in a position to lend you a hand up. It is time for strong, determined action. Go for the bullseye. Use your energy to make your dreams come true.

This card also asks you to either reset your intentions and goals to make them more current – or more realistic – or to re-energize them. Take stock. Write down ways you can implement your dreams. It is time to take concrete action towards your goals. Even small steps can make a big difference. This is a great time to seek out a friend who can act as support and a witness, help you launch your ideas into reality.”

As Challenger: “Perhaps you are avoiding taking responsibility for your situation. You cannot win, now, by simply biding your time. Don’t let life pass you by: get busy and get going. Perhaps you are too sedentary. If so, get off the couch and start walking. Tidy up. Use your energy in a positive way. Begin to move, little by little, baby step by baby step. You have some work to do before you can reach your goals and inspirations. You need more practice and skill and knowledge.

Ask for the energy of Reed if you are stuck or blocked. Imagine that you are the archer – take your bow and arrow, and with great skill and purpose, shoot the arrow to your bullseye. Allow the intention of your focus to carry you forward. Ask spirit for help. Set your intention to be a hollow reed for spirit to work through you as you focus on your intention.”

Message: “I represent action. No more apathy, please. Align with spirit and ask for direction. Align with the power of the owl or the pike. They know how to hunt and stalk. What do you want? It is time to go for it. Stick to your resolve. Set your intention and take steps toward outcomes. I ask you to take yourself seriously. Believe in yourself. I send you courage and fortitude and the belief in a positive outcome, no matter what. You are here for a purpose: to fulfill your own choices. So so with creativity and a spirit of fun.”*

As the time of the autumn equinox or harvest closes we are asked to take action on creating our dreams. This is a time of forward momentum. We must close out the year successfully, there is no room for stagnancy here. If you feel that you are stuck in a rut, it is up to you to change up the energy.

Find a way to do things differently; take a day off to go somewhere you have never been. Take a class or workshop, meet new people. Do some research on a desired vacation. Check into new job openings. Do something different than what you would normally do!

Revisit goal setting, particularly goals that you want to have achieved by the end of the year. Look at the bigger picture, what do you wish to create? How can you take action right now in order to get closer to your goals? Write it down. Get really clear. Set an intention for short and longer term. Do not let past failures get in the way of your future success.

You are the archer, this always resonates with me as a Sagittarius. See yourself aiming your arrow with absolute focus and concentration. Know that you are completely responsible for creating your dreams.

Namaste

Uilleand Honeysuckle

Published August 13, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Uilleand Honeysuckle, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton, published by Blue Angel

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Uilleand Honeysuckle, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton, published by Blue Angel

Uilleand Honeysuckle:

Totems: “Lapwing, Peewit, Hummingbirds, Moths, Bees, The Labyrinth, DNA”
Deities/Guides: “Merlin, the Crone or Hermit, Archetype, Medicine Man or Woman”
Letters: “UI, PE, P”
Class: “Peasant”

Keywords: “Seeking, Hidden Secrets, The Lantern That Lights The Path, The Need To Protect Something Important, Soul, Discovery, Bringing Light To The Darkness, Hidden Treasure, Illumination, Clarity, Restoration, The Pot Of Gold At The End Of The Rainbow.”

“This Uilleand Honeysuckle represents hidden secrets that we are meant to discover. The winding ways of this vine represents the labyrinth and the pathway into the inner life. The hermit or ancient medicine woman holds the lantern for us as we make our way into ourselves. There is a store of great treasure and knowledge there for us to discover if we will but begin the journey. We are encouraged to heal that which has been denied or repressed. We are invited to proceed with caution and enlist our spiritual helpers, so they can help light the darkness and illuminate the path of enlightenment. The ogham for this plant is Uilleand and the letters are UI, P, and PE. It is represented by bones, which are formed by crossing the index and middle fingers of each hand.”

Uilleand Honeysuckle In A Reading: “Uilleand Honeysuckle in a reading has to do with the search for inner knowledge. This flowering vine helps us discern false from true and choose that which is worthwhile. This woodbine is an ally. It provides protection and reminds you to stay true to yourself. Although you may find many distractions as you travel your path, this vine symbolizes a focused journey into the self and the soul. It signifies your spiritual journey and encourages you to keep learning, expressing your true nature, and evolving.

Honeysuckle may also come to let you know it is time to shine the light for others, so that they, too, can look into the mysteries and discover the treasure of their inner lives. By offering encouragement and insight, you may bring light to others’ darkness and empower them to embark on their own inner journey.

Discovery is emphasized. Be willing to learn about and explore your own inner world. See yourself as an archaeologist, investigating the layers of your own inner world. There is much hidden treasure to find there. Although you may dig up hidden things that disturb you, you also bring light into the dark hidden places, and light brings the healing. You also reconnect with your own gifts and talents, and empower your own expression.

Remember that it is your environment that affects the DNA. Light and love encourage the healthy patterns within your genes to be activated. Learn to apply positive thoughts, feelings, and actions to old habits of negativity. Become responsible for creating an environment of joy and health.”

As Challenger: “Reversed, Honeysuckle indicates insecurity. This is a state of mind that must be addressed. True security has nothing to do with failure or success in the world, but with recognizing your true nature, which is already perfect and whole. If you are feeling ‘less than,’ it is time for prayer or inner renewal. If you feel burned out or lost, circle around again into yourself.

Take a class or seek a spiritual teacher, or choose books that remind you of who you truly are. If you have lost track of your inner life, it is time for inner reflection. If you are afraid to begin the journey of self-knowledge, work with a therapist, healer, or coach at the start. Turn the corner on old stories, habitual negative patterns, and unhealthy programming.”

Message: “I am the Uilleand Honeysuckle, and I offer you the lovely scent of my flowers. I attract beauty and offer sweet nectar for the hummingbirds and the bees. I am here to remind you of your own sweetness and your own ability to attract good things into your life. You attract beauty when you choose beautiful thoughts, feelings, actions and activities.

You are growing new things. Allow yourself to develop naturally; cultivate you inner garden with seeds of love and intention. Follow the spiraling pattern that I create as I grow and know that this is how you, too, grow. Follow the spiral into your center and out again. What is hidden can be found. Pay attention to synchronicities and dreams. These are your allies in discovering your own  inner knowledge and true essence.

At the center of your heart lies desires and dreams and aspirations. Great treasure is available within you. Bring these inner resources to the light so they can be shared. Bring them forward for activation. They hold the secret to your soul’s purpose and your spiritual journey.”*

~ By Sharlyn Hidalgo

Again we are reminded to look within to our own inner strengths and talents. There is something important that will be revealed if you take the time necessary to search for it. A hidden talent, a strengthened intuition, or a valuable asset that you have not fully discovered; one that will make all the difference. It may be that you are prone to self-doubt and that you will second guess yourself on this, but you must have absolute faith in the process.

Do not compare yourself to others at this time, or ever for that matter! Everyone is on their own unique journey; we each have our own paths laid out ahead of us. Looking to someone else and wishing we had what they have just wastes our precious time and energy. Energy that we could be directing into something much more productive!

This is not a time to seek advice from others. This gives your power away as it puts your choices in someone else’s hands, and will be tainted by their own life experience, which is completely different than yours. Keep your dreams to yourself and make the choices that feel light and right for you, always asking that they be of the Highest Good for all involved. If you need to be heard, try journaling or talking to someone unbiased such as a counselor who can help you to take responsibility for and resolve your own issues rather than fixing them for you.

If you need a boost in confidence or some help healing, try choosing an energy healing modality that resonates with you. Focus also on self-healing by making small changes to diet and exercise, incorporating rest, hydration and proper nutrition. Be gentle with yourself. Spend some time alone in nature; particularly in bodies of water and under the stars to realign your energy and assimilate the higher frequencies that have been coming through.

Coll Hazel

Published June 20, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Coll Hazel, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharyln Hidalgo, Artwork by Jimmy Manton, published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Coll Hazel, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharyln Hidalgo, Artwork by Jimmy Manton, published by Blue Angel Publishing

Coll Hazel:

“Northern Hemisphere Dates: June 13-July 10 (Southern Hemisphere Dates: December 13-January 10)
Totems: Hare, Scarab, Tortoise and Turtles, Crab, Salmon
Deities/Guides: Gaia and The Great Mother Goddesses like Sophia and Isis, and Fintan, the White Ancient One
Letters: C, K
Class: Chieftan
9th Lunation
Celebration: Summer Solstice, June 20/21 (December 21/22)”

Keywords: “Water, the moon, bounty and abundance, intuition, wisdom, insight, knowledge, sage advice, divination, poetry, creative pursuits, higher perspective, clarity”

“The Coll Hazel initiates in the ninth lunation and includes the celebration of the summer solstice, also known as Alban Heruin, Midsummer, and Litha. Here we give our gratitude for the abundance of Mother Earth. Hazel is about compassion and love for our friends and families – as well as safety and protection, which are important aspects of mothering and nurturing. Hazel supports our emotional life. She honors the moon and the waters of our planet. She supports creative expression in the form of story, poetry, art, song and dance. Hazel brings clarity when we seek advice. The ogham for this tree is Coll and the letters C and K.”

Coll Hazel In A Reading: “Your feminine nature, the changing of the moon, the lunar principle of receptivity and mystery, and the Goddess Sophia of higher wisdom are all relevant now. Your female lineages have something to say to you, as do your spiritual heritages. Take some quiet time to tune in and listen for their nurturing messages. Take your initiation seriously. Find time to sit by a body of water near your home; a lake, the ocean, a river or a stream. This tree suggests appreciation. Appreciate cycles. What cycle are you in right now? This tree suggests acceptance of where you are right now as it is impossible to push the river.

It is time to give gratitude for all that you have and to honor the earth. Notice the abundance around you. This is a time for family time and family reunions. This card invites you to find gratitude for all the mothers in your life. If you require nurturing, cultivate friendships that can support you. Nurture others. Mother each other with compassion. It may be time to heal the mother wound. Perhaps this is the time for forgiveness. If you are a mother, make sure you are representing the best qualities of this role. If not, move towards changing your behaviour. Be the kind of mother that you would like to have yourself.

Spend some time in nature and follow the course of the moon. Consider poetry, divination, and meditation. Call up your  inner muse, as you can find inspiration here. Pay attention to your dreams and creative urges.

You are offered wisdom that can be applied to any situation. Creative solutions are possible. Seek the advice of elders. If you seek clarity this card will offer you sage advice. Go within and ask the ancestors for a specific message for you.”

As Challenger: “Are you ignoring your intuitive knowing? Perhaps you don’t like what you are sensing, as change is indicated. Even so, it is time to pay attention to wisdom that is offered you. Are you resistant to advice?

Are you cut off from other women? From the mothers in your life? Perhaps it is time to heal a mother wounding. Perhaps you are cut off from your family or your connection to Mother Earth. How do you mother yourself? It is time to cease repeating habitual negative messages to yourself. Instead, begin giving yourself the nurturing you require. Offer this to others, as well. Too much criticism separates us from ourselves and others.

Perhaps you are experiencing a creative block. Is it time to learn new skills? Would it help you to work with others to overcome creative obstacles? If so, look to your community. Or it may be that you feel stymied in your pursuits and goals because you are not heeding your intuition. If so, go within and reconnect with your own inner knowing.”

Message: “I represent your own inner wisdom. I am that small, still voice inside that is sometimes hard to hear. I stand up for the heart wisdom that insures life and health for you, your situations, and your mother planet. You’ll find my speaking in a babbling brook or a dense forest. You’ll find me in the fullness of the summer sun. I am part of the paradise in which you live. I produce the hazelnut of wisdom and ancient knowledge. Please take care of me and of yourself and the children of this world. I am the birth of your own dreams and visions. Now is a good time to use your divination tools. It is also a great time to support others and act as a guide or helper.”*

Here we have a message of nurturing, communication, deeper connection and creating community. Tomorrow is Solstice, our longest day of the year and a day of Light, abundance, luck and joy. What will you set as your intention this Summer Solstice? (Or winter solstice if you are in the Southern Hemisphere!) What do you invite into your reality, what have you made space for, what are you focusing on now?

Make a plan now to spend some time outside, in your favourite garden, forest, park or beach. Give yourself time to slow down and enjoy being present. Let your instincts and intuition guide you. Communicate with the trees. Honour every plant and creature. Feel the connection you have with each and every one of them, and the overall energy of the wild space.

If you can, watch the sun go down and the stars come out. Send gratitude for all that you have in your life right now. And meet tomorrow with open heart and open mind. You are stepping into the second chapter of 2018. What magic will it hold in the face of all the chaos? Whatever magic you create.

Namaste

Duir Oak

Published May 1, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Duir Oak, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharyln Hidalgo, illustrated by Jimmy Manton Published by Blue Angel Publishing

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Duir Oak, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharyln Hidalgo, illustrated by Jimmy Manton Published by Blue Angel Publishing

Duir Oak:

“Northern Hemisphere Dates: April 18-May 15th (Southern Hemisphere Dates: October 18-November 15).
Totems: Bull, Flowers, Budding Plants, Seeds, Thresholds and Doorways, Faeries
Deities/Guides: The Cow Goddess Hathor, the Sky Goddess Nut, Gaia, Blodeuwedd (The Maiden Aspects of the Godess), The White Moon Goddess, The Horned God Cernunnos, The Green Man
Letter: D
Class: Chieftain
7th Lunation
Celebration: Beltane, May 1st (November 1st)

Keywords: “Fertility and sexuality, strength and stability, grounding and endurance, ancient knowledge, doors and thresholds, boundaries.

The Duir Oak initiates in the seventh lunation and includes the celebration of Beltane. The sacred marriage is enacted, now, between the community’s representation of the Great Goddess and Curnunnos, which ensures fertility for an other season. This is the holiday of sexuality and sensuality and represents a threshold which the maiden aspect of the Goddess crosses into the Mother aspect. We celebrate the blood mysteries and the young women’s first menarche. We celebrate fertility and the magic of the green earth that sustains us. This is a time of conception and the beginning of new life with the returning of the sun. This tree offers strength, stamina, and is a symbol for generation. The ogham for this tree is Duir and the letter D.”

Duir Oak In A Reading: “Oak, in a reading, gifts you with strength and endurance, stamina and grounded stability.

This tree offers you practicality, common sense, and an ability to bring things to completion. There is a desire to make things beautiful and to create. You may choose to work in the garden, now, as this is the card for a green thumb. It signifies a time to notice nature and spend some time out of doors. It is time to take a hike or go to the park. Take in the beauty of the green earth.

Oak also is an indication of fertility, whether you are conceiving a child, project, business, or other creative endeavour. Oak celebrates sensuality and sexuality and the sacred act of creation and progeny.

This tree also promises you knowledge, information, guidance, and wisdom. Expect synchronicities. Situations, people, dreams, and books may appear for your benefit and growth. Doors are opening up for you, and thresholds are meant to be crossed. This is a time to feel strong and secure as you build toward the manifestation of your dreams.”

As Challenger: “You may feel powerless or weakened, when Duir Oak appears as Challenger. You may be called upon to depend upon others for your protection, now, because you feel weaker than usual and require more security. You may feel overly excited, manic, anxious, or nervous and ungrounded. You may be carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. This may indicate that you are in need of support and assistance. Is it time to get practical and schedule an appointment with your doctor, therapist, minister, or spiritual advisor?

Perhaps you are feeling stagnant, bored or stuck. Are you saying ‘no,’ too often? Are you stopping your growth because of too-comfortable habits and routines? Although these may make you feel safe, they can keep you stagnant, and you may feel discontent because of a lack of flow and positive activity in your life. It is time to get off the couch. Only so much security can come from things. Real security comes from presence. Leave the past and drop your worries about the future. Be in the now and feel the love.”

Message: “I am the steady, faithful Oak. Seek me and sit with me. I am old and strong and grounded. I will take your troubles and let them flow into Mother Earth for their transmutation. She knows what to do with the energy. I am the promise of spring. You can see my energy in the budding flowers. I am the daffodils and the tulips come to life. I am all of the little wild animals creatures in nature, the squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, and possums. They all come together under my sacred space. Come and sit in my grove, which is the most ancient of temples and churches. Nature is your home; you are safe here and nurtured. Breathe me in and breathe me out. I will help you remember your true nature. You are loved and you are beautiful. You are perfect already You have everything you need to manifest your dreams and desires. It is time to begin. This beginning is like the acorn that is a mighty symbol of growth and regeneration. What you begin has the potential to grow into a great oak tree of your own manifestation.”*

~ By Sharlyn Hidalgo

Today is more than the first day of May. It is Beltane, an ancient day of the celebration of fertility, creativity and deep earth connection. Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine coming together. God and Goddess, equal, balanced, passionate and wild. It is a powerful portal of creative manifestation that, no matter what your particular religious or spiritual beliefs, can be welcomed as our ability to manifest is amplified exponentially.

What you focus your intention on is what you create, today. The repercussions of this manifestation will be felt into the future near and far. The emotions that fuel your creativity will be the stone and mortar of the reality you create.

What are you feeling? Where is your attention? How are you focused? What do you believe is possible for you, right now? Add all that up and you get the sum of the equasion of what you are creating. Are you feeling like a victim, like nothing is going right for you? Get ready for more of that. Are you rising above the drama and setting course for something new? Get ready for that. You are at the helm of this boat that you created. Is it a castaway style log raft or is it a beautiful sailboat gliding through rough seas? Also up to you…

Today is the day to embrace every beautiful aspect of being you. Love yourself. Accept yourself. Drop the judgment, the doubt, the fear and especially the negativity or victimhood. That no longer serves you. Choose something different today.

Be your wildest sexy self. Put on something beautiful; bust out a favourite outfit, shirt or piece of jewelry. Rock a new hairstyle. Smile. Flirt innocently. Hug someone you love and tell them you love them, life is too short to keep those important declarations inside. Treat yourself to something (healthy) that makes you smile. Do your favourite thing to do, or make a plan to do it very soon. Sing. Dance. Skip. Pick some wild flowers. Have a sensual date with your favourite person. Eat your favourite food…You get the gist of it. Sensuality.

And lastly, honour our Great Mother in this beautiful season. Smell the flowers in the air. Hug a tree. Leave an offering, create an altar and be sure to burn a candle and some delicious incense to honour this fiery and passionate occasion. Bring vitality back into your life in all areas and watch your reality transform through positive action and intention.

All up to you.

Namaste

Saille Willow

Published January 30, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Saille Willow, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Saille Willow, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Saille Willow:

“Northern Hemisphere Dates: January 24-Feb 20th
Southern Hemisphere Dates: July 24-Aug 20
Totems: Bee (shared with Gorse, Heather, and Honeysuckle), Dove
Deities/Guides: Brigit (the Maiden aspect of the Goddess)
Letter: S
Class: Peasant
4th Lunation
Celebration: Imbolc, February1/2 (August 1/2)”

Keywords: “The Feminine Principle, Cooperation, Fertility, Intuition, The Moon and Her Cycles, Water, Emotions, Creativity, Community.”

“The Saille Willow initiates in the fourth lunation of the year. This tree represents the feminine principle and is associated with the celebration of Imbolc and Candlemas. This is a period of the quickening of the creative principle and the element of fire. We celebrate the magic that sparks the seed deep within the earth to begin to grow. The teaching of this is about enriching our community, cooperating with others, and learning to share power and resources with others. Willow teaches us to embrace our emotions and to express them. She encourages peace and harmony with others and with the natural world. She supports our dream life. Many wonderful plans and ideas come to us in this way. The ogham for this tree is Saille and the letter is S.”

Saille Willow In A Reading: “When you draw Willow, you can expect a meeting with the mysteries, the power of enchantment, magic and the moon. You can expect to have a psychic or intuitive encounter. Dreams and synchronicities are important. Pay attention to your own intuition. Meditation and contemplation time is important. Make some personal time for quiet reflection. As yourself where you are in the cycle of things. If you are wondering about a creative endeavour, you can expect a visitation from the muse.

You may also feel moodier than usual. If this is an emotional time, remember that it is ok to cry. Tears are healing; they release pent up feelings. Allow even negative feelings to arise. Express them and let them go, as they have no power over you unless you ignore them or stifle them.

Willow has everything to do with the feminine energy. This card may come up when you are going through issues that have to do with sexuality, fertility, reproduction, birthing, or mothering. You may need the physical support of friends, family, and your community as you move through these issues in your life. Be willing to ask for help. If you are going through grief or loss associated with these themes, Willow offers you healing.

Willow encourages you to do something creative. Draw, sing, dance, or write a poem. Leave the critical part of your thinking aside, and just allow the expression. Enjoy it. She asks you to partake in your community, too, to be receptive, to participate in a cooperative endeavor. Also, women are important to your process, now. Do not forget to support your own feminine side, as well.”

As Challenger: “You may not be aware of your underlying feelings and emotions, or you may be afraid of your feelings and be repressing them or cutting yourself off from them. If this is the case, it is time to allow yourself to feel.

On the other hand, perhaps you give your power over to your emotions, and now they are running your life. If so, it is time to get back int he driver’s seat. If you continue to experience difficult emotions over a long period of time, investigate your thinking and weed out thoughts and beliefs that are driving those feelings. It may also be time to seek help.

When Saille Willow appears as challenger, you may not be receiving the benefits of your relationships with others and your community. Perhaps you are feeling alone and isolated. It may be hard to find any sense of peace within your current experience. You may be dealing with anger, fear, or loss. Grief may have its hold on you. It is time to talk to a trusted friend or counselor. It is time to set your mind to creating honey in your life and attracting help and love.

You may also have a deep soul need for the quiet and contemplation in which you can find the reassurance, comfort, and nurturance that the Divine Feminine and the Great Goddess can provide. It is possible that you are out of spiritual balance. Turn to your feminine side, to your dreams, and visions.”

Message: “I am the majestic Saille Willow. I am a tree that supports you in honouring your feelings. When you are having an emotional moment, be kind to yourself. Treat all of your emotions with kindness. Once they have your attention, they will diminish. That is all that they want. Your unconditional love and attention is everything. In this way, you are acting like the perfect mother – to yourself. The feminine principle is about love, kindness, care, appreciation and calming attention.

I represent the Great Mother of all, and I send my healing love. I am here to hug and to hold you. You can seek comfort in my great arms. I am an umbrella of love and protection. You are a child of the vast universe, and you are precious. I am here to reassure you that all is well and that all is returning to balance. Forgive yourself and allow healing to take place. In time, you can lay down your grievances and forgive others. All acts of forgiveness are really for your own healing.”*

 ~ By Sharlyn Hidalgo

Emotions are coming to a crescendo and will only continue to rise as we get closer to the lunar events of tomorrow. Super! Blue! Full! Lunar Eclipse! Like seriously people, things are getting a little crazy!

Let your own emotions run through you without getting all caught up in them. Acknowledge them, see them, feel them, let them go. Bless and release. Don’t deny; don’t stuff them down, that never works, they will pop up when you least expect them and possibly manifest physically… nobody wants that. They must be honoured and understood, but not wallowed in. Let the tears flow. Laugh out loud. Breathe deeply and reconnect yourself often. Stay hydrated and grounded. Do your best and don’t beat yourself up.

We don’t like feeling emotional pain. We will usually do quite literally anything to avoid it at all costs. We distract ourselves. We ignore. We make up stories, justifications, illusions. Then we buy into them and pack them around with us for extended periods of time… lifetimes sometimes.

Take this chance to let it go. Be it. Feel it. Let it go.

The tides are highest highs and lowest lows. Our emotions follow suit. Don’t take things too personally. Allow those around you to experience their own emotional upheavals without attaching a story about you to them. Be there as support without taking it all on. Do not play the victim or the rescuer. Just be there. Honest, raw, authentic.

Things will level out a bit after this, but you have to climb that mountain to get the spectacular view.

Keep climbing you aren’t quite there.

Namaste

Beith Birch

Published December 28, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Beith Birch, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Beith Birch, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, artwork by Jimmy Manton

Beith Birch:
“Northern Hemisphere Dates: November 1-28 (Southern Hemisphere Dates: May 1-28)
Totems: Snake, Phoenix, Eagle
Deities/Guides: Macha, Morgan, Cerridwen, and Hecate (The Crone aspect of the Goddess)
Letter: B
Class: Peasant
1st Lunation
Celebration: Celtic New Year, November 1 (May 1)”

Keywords: “Endings and new beginnings, cleaning and purification, releasing old patterns, overcoming difficulties, shedding the old, new growth and renewal, pliance in the peaceful resolution of conflict, higher perspective, return to innocence.”

“The Beith Birch initiates the first lunation. At this time of year, as we prepare for winter and seek deep transformation, we honour the crone aspect of the Goddess. Although crones are harbingers of death, they are also responsible for birth and new life. They are our midwives. After a period of emptying and releasing old patterns, acknowledging disappointments and regrets and embracing our achievements, we listen carefully to the quiet voice within and set our intentions for the year to come. In this way, we plant the seeds of future possibilities and establish the foundation for the year ahead, which heralds in what we call the dark half of the year, when the new gestates in the dark. Birch will also help in the peaceful resolution of conflict. She provides a higher perspective and spiritual understanding. She will return you to a state of innocence and non-judgment. The ogham for this tree is Beith and the letter B.

Beith Birch In A Reading: “When you draw the Birch card, you can expect new beginnings. However, in order to move ahead, you may have to tie up loose ends and let go of what is no longer needed. Therefore, Beith Birch also stands for cleansing and purification. Old patterns are released, and you can shed unhelpful influences, now, just like this tree sheds its bark. This is a time for forgiveness of yourself and others.

There is the promise of new starts, renewal, and new life. This is the time to set new intentions, now that you have let go of last year’s energies. Sit quietly so that you can listen deeply. From your heart, begin to formulate new plans and intentions. This is the time to decide what seeds you will plant and cultivate for the year ahead.

Birch also offers healing, peace, and resolution in times of conflict. Her branches are pliant and supple. Take a Birch leaf or twig with you – or imagine her in your mind’s eye – when you must resolve a conflict. She brings in the power of peaceful reconciliation.

Take a look at your new year with a higher perspective. Allow your higher self to inform you. Breathe in her deepest message, which is love and light. Let Birch’s heart-shaped leaves remind you that your true wisdom comes from the heart. Allow yourself to look at your life and the world around you with new eyes. Lay aside your judgments and return to a state of innocence.”

As Challenger: “Perhaps you are reluctant to let go of that which is keeping you from moving forward – afraid to release old patterns and unhelpful influences. You may not be ready to forgive or to deal with conflicts. Perhaps you are hanging onto the old, and it is not serving you. Think about where you are not allowing your life to flow naturally. What are you holding on to so tightly that nothing can change? You are encouraged to let go so that you can move forward.

Set you house in order. This is probably not the best moment to begin something new, as you have work to do to prepare first. When your thoughts and feelings are aligned with your highest good, then you will be able to clear the way and begin.

If you find that you are overly judgmental, now is the time to let such habits of thought go. Judgment only creates separation, and in truth there can be no separation. Make an effort to return to innocence and to your connection to all that is. Play a game, take a run, do something fun to remind you what it feels like to be a child again. From this place, you can let go of your resistance and move into your heart space.”

Message: “I am the beautiful Birch tree. I wear bright gold and red leaves in the autumn. My branches grow down long and slender; my many heart shaped leaves dance and whisper in the wind. Close your eyes and listen to the sounds of my leaves rustling in the autumn winds. Listen to my encouraging messages.

See how I love to grow tall and straight? Look up and see the sky. Look all the way to the tip of my highest branches. Look to the light, and as you do so, allow yourself to lighten up. Imagine you are the eagle landing on my highest branch. Seek a higher perspective. You can see the whole picture – the exact opposite of not seeing the forest for the trees! What do you notice?

I encourage you to open your eyes and allow your innocence to come forward. Let go of any need for separation and judgment. Allow yourself to remember how it feels to enjoy yourself and feel as one with everything and everyone. Come into my field, my aura, and we will start over from this moment. We will begin a whole new story that is set in this very moment, where everything is already given. Keep facing the light and allow me to bring you the awareness of my higher perspective.”*

Every single thought we have is tainted by some sort of belief system we have adopted around it, particularly thoughts about ourselves, our value and our capabilities. We see things through a lens particular to us; our experiences, our hurts, our victories and our failures. We take our lives and we live it according to the thoughts, beliefs, feelings, habits and patterns that we are used to. That feel comfortable to us.

Maybe they are inherited culturally. Maybe we get them from society. From family. A teacher, a relative, a caregiver, a neighbour. Role models, rock stars, celebrities; people we look up to. Every single person we have interactions with leaves an imprint. It could be just a trace, or it could be something much larger that we hold on to, carry with us for the long term.

But how can we create something brand new if we can only perceive what is possible through our narrow lens? What if we were to take a really good long look at the lens itself and see if we have perhaps outgrown it? What if we realized we were looking through someone else’s lens this whole time? What if we didn’t even need a lens?

Then what would be possible?

There are new beginnings coming, that is no surprise. The new year is within reach. A brand new year to play with, to create with, to dream into being.

But how will you create it? What will hold you back from creating something more amazing than you have ever created before? What could you release so that you could do things in a completely new way?

Take some time to think outside the box. Dream a whole lot bigger than you usually do. Refuse to look through that old lens.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Oir Spindle, from the Celtic Tree Oracle, by Sharlyn Hidalgo, Illustrated by Jimmy Manton

Oir Spindle

Totems: “Thunder Beings, Light Beings, Thunderbird”
Deities and Guides: “Brigit, Lugh, Lucina, Thor, The Three Fates, Spinning and Weaving Goddesses”
Letters: “OK, TH”
Class: “Peasant”

Keywords: “Fulfillment, Delight, Light, Sudden Insight, Thunder And Lightening, Release, Energy, Illumination, Your Best Efforts, Completion Of A Task”

“Oir Spindle represents sudden flashes of insight and brings illumination and clarity. She is about fulfillment and delight – in particular, the fulfillment that comes after the completion of tasks. Therefore, this tree encourages us to put aside our excuses, evasions, and denial. We are encouraged to get to work and complete our goals so we can fulfill our aspirations. Spindle helps us to fulfill obligations so we can move forward. She rewards us for doing the very best we can. The ogham for Spindle is Oir and the letters are OI and TH. It is represented by the helmet, and is formed by the index fingers and thumbs touching at their tips.”

Oir Spindle In A Reading: “This card offers you sudden insight and clarity. This tree is about enlightenment. You are asked to remember that you are being of light and to see the light in every person you meet and every situation you enter. This tree brings illumination and insight.

When you receive Oir Spindle in a reading, you are promised fulfillment. But the key is that you must do the work. Lay aside your reluctance and your excuses. Get busy. Success is promised, but first must come labour. Spindle will help you to fulfill the necessary steps and give you the energy to complete your work. Choose to do your best and apply your energy to the tasks at hand. True sweetness comes from fulfilling these tasks to the best of your ability.

If you are trying to make a decision, you are advised to investigate. Get all the relevant facts. Do your due diligence. When you have gathered the information, you can make an informed decision, choose and begin.

Spindle is a good wood for making pegs, bobbins, and spindles – all practical tools. You may have a project that has to do with woodworking. What practical tools do you need to create or gather to fulfill your task at hand? What expertise do you need? Who can you go to for guidance or help? what skills do you need? Make a practical plan. Consider time, money, and practicalities.”

As Challenger: “You may have to wait for your fulfillment. Keep to the task at hand. Don’t lose faith. Are you feeling impatient and impulsive? Practice patience. Your rewards will come through your determination and persistence.

This is a good time to carefully evaluate the situation. What must be addressed before right action can be undertaken? Let the transformative forces do their work. You stand on a threshold and may feel stymied, but in truth, it is time to consider all that has brought you to this gateway. Don’t bluster your way through things now. Rather, take your time and avoid hasty decisions that may bring you more difficulty. Pause before you step through and begin your next action or activity. Count your blessings. Ask for help as you need it.

If you are uninspired, allow the light to penetrate your being. Rest. If you can’t see the forest for the trees, ask Spindle for sudden revelation and clarity. Breathe in the teachings of Spindle.”

Message: “I am the Oir Spindle, and I bring you hope for the future. I sustain you with new light as you move towards your goals. I bring clarity and insight. I illuminate new possibilities. I am the promise of that which you long to create. I offer you the strength and encouragement to fulfill your goals. I offer you sweetness and delights.

Gather what you need to complete a task or project. Get busy. I offer you sustenance to do the work that will ensure the fulfillment of your goals. We are partners in the business of applying energy to ideas and bringing plans to fruition.

Notice what you already have that is full of beauty and contentment. Pat yourself on the back for all that you have completed, for a job well done. Take some time to enjoy the fruits of your labours, before You plunge into the next project or endeavour.

I am the candle within you. What inspires you? How can you keep that inner light burning, even in great darkness? I help you embrace change and appreciate your own insight and sudden flashes of knowing. I help you awaken, take yourself seriously. I am your hope and your inner light, and I am here to remind you of your awesome potential and creative nature. Let me inspire you. Let me fill you with a sense of contentment and the realization that you have done well.”

This is a very auspicious message of your hard work coming to fruition, fulfillment on your personal journey, a feeling of success and completion, and a job well done. You are so close! Almost there…but there’s still a bit to do yet.

When you undertake your tasks with determination and commitment, and put your heart and soul into them, the payoff is supreme. This is not a rushed job, trying to get it done and over with, this is a masterpiece worth your efforts; the blood, sweat and tears are all for good reason.

It has to do with where you have put your focus of late. What you so truly wish to create. But you must do it step by step. Do not rush things. Let them unfold naturally and do the work as it comes to you. Dot your  i’s and cross your t’s take; pride in what you are doing.

This is also a time when taking care of yourself is vital. Eating well, staying hydrated, exercising regularly and resting when you need it is all so important. Listen to your body. It is all part of the process. Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit.

Namaste
