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

Ace Of Swords: “A sword is double edged. It can slice with the swift assurance of justice to clear the obstructions that hide the truth. It can be the beacon to use intelligence and fairness to achieve clarity. Or it can be wielded with the arrogance of raw power in the heat of rage. These are the two sides of the strength that is embodied in this weapon – two very different uses of force to work one’s will upon the world.

Something is beginning now. The winds gather in whirling eddies to summon the guardians of the skies: the wisps and the souls and the feathered ones. From that vortex, something arises that will force the duality of the Ace Of Swords to slice one way or the other.

These are the sylphs of the air, and the guardians for the swords: the winged beings of the sky. A swan is lovely – she possesses downy white feathers and a slender neck that arcs with a sinuous grace – but that delicacy is a facade that cloaks a strong body and fierce nature that is unafraid of standing up. The swan will fight to protect its own, and strong wings open to catch and ride the winds across great distances.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Transformation, strength, courage and protection. Beauty, grace, ease and powerful determination. The course has been decided, and it is up to us to keep on track. We are in the process of something big here, something life changing and profound. You are the spiritual warrior.

Trust your intuition and have the confidence to follow it. Know that you are more powerful than you give yourself credit for, and that it is time for you to shine your light brightly for the world. Share your gifts. Follow your heart. Stick to your guns. Don’t let anyone or anything throw you off course. No more duality, no more masks and illusions. Simplify your life in any area you can, cut our that which drains your energy unnecessarily and add more of what makes you feel alive.

Watch for signs, symbols, messages and confirmation that you are on the right track. White feathers from your angels. Clear and repetitive dreams. Animal totems. Songs or snippets of conversations that are just too bang on not to mean anything. There are no coincidences! Number sequences… 111, 222, 333, or 11:11 etc. This is the Universe communicating with you and guiding you forward on your journey.

The sword is also an indication that you are being helped by Archangel Michael; remember to call on him for assistance along the way.

Namaste

The High Priestess

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The High Priestess, from the Shadowscapes Oracle Card deck, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

The High Priestess: “The The High Priestess opens herself to the sky. She basks in the radiance the stars cast upon her upturned cheeks. She soaks in that tremulous, incandescent light, feeling it glow within her mind, opening corridors and dancing into filigree patterns.”

The Stars Chant:

“We were here when the mountains were young
and the sea was only a dream…
we’ve seen the hills bloom with countless
millions of seasons…
we’ve watched the clouds paint their visions
in a slow language across the centuries…
let us speak.”

‘The owl hoots in the darkness, calling out to his mistress with the music of the night. His white feathers gleam in the moonlight as if with a light from within. He glides through the darkness to come to rest near her.

In the gloom, the night is full of whispers – the secret knowledge of the stars, of the trees, and of the earth. The spirits of each murmur their collected stories and their wisdom in a sibilant descant.

She weaves those sounds through her fingers, drawing the voices into physical being, and in her fingers, a filigree key coalesces. She calls the owl to her. ‘Take this, and be the bearer of secrets,’ she tells him.

Card Meaning: “Wisdom, knowledge, learning, intuition, purity, virtue. The High Priestess lifts her arms out, and in that gesture, her very body becomes the living symbol of a chalice. The owl is a keeper of knowledge, and he bears a key to unlock mysteries. The pomegranate is an icon of Persephone, who tasted the seeds and thus tied herself to Hades; it is the fruit of fertility and death. The moons embroidered upon her garments wax and wane, the new crescent and gibbous moons that create the full cycle embraced in one.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

There is openness and receptivity here as she spreads her arms wide, palms to the cosmos and receives what is hers for the taking; knowledge, wisdom, abundance. She rises up above the drama, the watery depths of the third dimension of consciousness, refusing to be caught up in the darkness and chaos. Her hair flows up above her head connecting into the Universal flow, Crown chakra activated and connected. She is both the Sun and the Moon. She has feathers of both black and white, suggestive of the polarity of the physical existence… the isolation, the connection to All That Is.

You are the living Chalice, you have the ability to access all that the Universe has to offer, all resides within you. You are a vessel of Love and of Light. You are the beacon, you are the portal, you are the connection.

Rise above the mundane, the worry, the doubt, the fear and the drama and find this aspect of yourself. Channel in all that it has to offer you. Lifetimes of the wisdom gleaned from lessons learned. The secrets of healing. The magic and mystery of the Universe.

Within you lies the Holy Grail

Namaste

Knight Of Wands

Published November 6, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Knight Of Wands, from the Shadowscapes Oracle, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

Knight Of Wands: “The Knight Of Wands indicates change and progression towards a goal. He is an individual full of daring and passion. His spirit is ablaze with the fire that wands suit symbolizes and like fire, the bright, brindled fur of his lion mount and his fox attendants flash through the woods as they dart in a flaming entourage through the trees. The wind runs rippling fingers through his hair, and he laughs for the joy of that sensation and the power leashed in the muscles of the lion, bunching and stretching beneath him.

This knight is on a journey for adventure. Excitement flows along in his trail. He does not necessarily seek it, but his presence invariably spurs rivalry and conflict, perhaps because of his cocky and assured attitude and self-confidence. Sometimes his aggressive nature can be seen as being overconfident, too impetuous.

He is a knight with a blazing lion’s heart and the sparking cleverness of foxes, though not always the wisdom to match it. He recklessly rides crashing through the world, leaping from cliffs in heroic bounds towards his destination. Such a wondrously heroic sight to glimpse him as he passes! Destiny, faith, and the purity of his goal shine with an effervescent glow in his eyes, so that perhaps he does not notice the flowers he may trample along the path in his headlong plunge. Be wary of allowing the wild temper and flaming energy of this knight to cause discord and interruption.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Sometimes passion takes over. We can be impulsive in the name of inspiration. Usually it is what we feel as the first rush of love, or rather lust that starts this wild energy into motion. We get all caught up in it, ignoring red flags. Taking things too fast. The flame burns hot and bright… but it can also burn out quickly if we are not careful. Maybe we feel like things are ‘different’ this time around. The rules don’t apply. We throw caution to the wind and ride the wave of heated passion, all our hopes and dreams dangling before us like carrots on tenuous strings.

If we can just take a big deep breath and slow it all down a little. Get grounded. Think things through. Maybe there is a way to sustain our passion; instead of throwing gasoline on the flames we can tend to it gently, slowly stoking it into something manageable. Something warming, nurturing, and lasting. Or maybe this is just an adventure, one to get us to the next chapter. Maybe it is a lesson we have not yet agreed to learn. Maybe it is a chance at a new beginning. We can only find out by bringing back our presence of mind. Listening to our intuition. Taking things one step at a time. Not getting wrapped up in the what if’s. Not projecting our version of a future upon it. Giving ourselves a chance to see if it is real or if it is just mere fantasy.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun along the way! Enjoy this time. Enjoy how the passion and inspiration makes you feel. And if you are not feeling passion, know it will be here shortly.

Know that you cannot control another, you can only manage yourself. Your fire. Your heart. Your energy.

Listen, really listen to your heart and you will know the way.

Namaste

The Sun

Published October 1, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Sun, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Sun, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

“In a flare of liquid gold that pours across the sky, the sun rises. It is the brilliant star of day, banishing the thin and wispy light of his night bound siblings in the rich glow of dawn.

The King of Birds emerges from his slumbering roost as the morning mist rises in hazy waves from the dew dampened ground. His feathers gleam iridescent under dawn’s rosy palette of warmth tinged light. His companion mounts and together they set wing across the lands of their domain. They glide across the valleys, hearing the songs rise from workers in the fields. They soar up high and taunt the mountaintops with an elusive brush of wingtips across the upper peaks.

The denizens of the day trial in an entourage of avian delight. They pour across the sky, trailing after the sun in the arc of its journey to the western horizon.

From fallow field and verdant vale,
from sun=bleached shores with diamond grains,
and moonlit trails that trek like veins
through mountain, river, past the end
where sky is but a ghostly veil
that to Beyond transcends…

I summon all the winged kin
from this horizon to the bounds
of what is dreampt and all surrounds!
The voices of forbidden songs
will spiral through and center in
to fall where they belong!”

Meaning Of The Card: “Enlightenment and understanding, glory, achieving prominence. The constant renewal of life, vitality, filled with radiant joy and energy, invigoration, and good health. being full of assurance and confidence, a clarity of vision and purpose lit by the clear daylight. From the times of ancient civilizations up to the present, the sun has always been a symbol of life and growth. It has been embodied in vibrant gods and goddesses in cultures throughout the ages – young and glorious and brilliant, full of vigor and blazing splendor. The strength and power of the gods pours forth in the nourishing glow of the sun.”*

OOOh all those birds and each with a different medicine to offer. Wisdom, healing, mystery, purity; and they are all leaving us with the gift of their feathers, a sure sign that they wish to work with us. Notice that the hummingbird sits on his arm, signalling joy and a lightness of Being. Be very aware of the birds who come into your reality today, whether alive and flying in of their own accord, photos, articles, songs or otherwise. Be sure to take note of the species and look up the meaning or animal totem. There will be a very special message for you today. Watch for feathers too!

Finally we have the sun… more than a light a the end of the tunnel. This is about life force, vitality and strength. New beginnings, fresh starts, warmth and life affirming energy. Bring it on! We so need it. This is not the energy of the scorching summer sun, but a message of the gift of the energy of Light itself which we cannot live without.

The angel signifies health and healing, courage and confidence, and the divine light within us all. It is a reminder that we each hold within us the divine spark of Light which can illuminate even the most dense, dark and hopeless of energies. It is the light of hope.

Find a moment today to turn your face towards the sun, no matter the weather and give thanks. Know that there is opportunity coming. A new month full of possibility. The last quarter of the year. What else is possible? How can it get any better than this?

Namaste

The World

Published September 26, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The World, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The World, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

“The pulse of the World ripples is an affirmation of all the life that it holds and all the death that passes. Every leaf and tree, every creature – from the smallest insects to the great singing whales – the patterns that they weave as they are born and die and cycle onward, all tremble in unison with that single heartbeat, brought together by a mighty conductor. It is a wonderfully discordant harmony, the essence of balance, a unity of disparate parts.

She sets the crown of insight lightly on her brow. She wears the girdle of truth. She reaches within and feels the lifeline that she is connected to as well. She touches it, and it is like a tangible presence in her heart, delicate but strong. The shining web of connections stretches from her heart and out into the ether. And then she reaches out with her mind, above, so high! She feels at one with the soaring birds, knows the stretch and strain of wing muscles flexing and balancing on the wind, knows the kiss of sunlight on her outstretched leaves and branches, feels the slow erosion of water on stone over the millennia.

There is no past or present or later, for this heart beat has pulsed from the first spark of the universe, and it will beat until the end of time. It is an everlasting moment of Now, and the shimmering web of connection thrums gloriously hot in her veins. With a sudden clarity, she knows in that instant that she is blessed.”

Meaning Of The World Card: “Satisfaction and peace of mind. A successful conclusion, and the end is in sight. Achieving balance, melding and blending to bring together in unison the multiple songs of life. The World is a card of realized goals and prosperity. It is a state of completion, through not without a share of involvement and hard work to attain. When one’s goals have been reached, there is a space, a quiet breath of a moment in time when a feeling of ultimate fulfillment spills through the consciousness. It is a wondrous and precious moment, the culmination of hard work, to see your dreams come true and to know that elusively mythical treasure promised in fairy tales: the heart’s desire.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Your world is yours to create, do you see the focused intention illustrated for us? “With a sudden clarity, she knows in that instant that she is blessed.” … “It is an everlasting moment of Now…” How do these words make you feel? What seems possible? What illusions can you step away from? What toxicity can you decide, right now, to say no thank you to? What limiting beliefs can you surpass in order to create what you wish to create. Remember this is about you. It is about your heart and your destiny, no matter what anyone else thinks. Despite what anyone else thinks. It’s time to think outside the box.

We are being reminded that how we see our world is how we shape it. How we feel into our reality is how we bring it into form. There is so much fear all around us yet what we see it focused intention on what is right in front of us; living in the moment that we always have available to us… right Now.

What can you create now, by making a choice different to what has previously been made? How can you change something that needs changing, right now. How can you feel differently about what is available to you in this moment. How can you change how you feel about what you are capable of right now? Remember it is about heart centered awareness, not the pursuit of perfection.

You are in a world full of chaos and uncertainty… we all are. We all face the same choices: worry, fret, doubt and stay small… or take control of it from the inside out.

Find a way to create something better. Find your way to peace no matter what’s going on around you.

Take back your power.

Namaste

The Hierophant

Published September 19, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Hierophant, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Hierophant, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

The Hierophant: “I would like a story,” says the salamander to the Hierophant.

“And what would you like to hear, little one?” The words come slowly. Each syllable seems to be drawn from deep within, pulled up from an individual rootlet. The salamander is used to it, and patient.

“I want to hear how I may fly. I was content. And then one day, my friend Caterpillar said he was sleepy. He slept for a long time, until I nearly forgot about him – until yesterday. A moth came to laugh at me. He laughed with Caterpillar’s laugh, and with Caterpillar’s voice he said he had had a dream of wings.”

“Ah.” The sonorous exhalation seems to go on forever. “Ah, little one; I am sorry. Caterpillar has that blessing. He may sleep and dream of flight. He weaves a silken ritual around his body, and then comes the day when that vision transforms him. You…”

“I wish to dream of flight too!” says Salamander, very seriously.

“You may dream of it, ” says his friend and teacher. “I will not be the one to deny you divinity. But just know that your own divinity shall be attained along a different path than Caterpillar’s. Do not relinquish your dream, Salamander.”

Meaning Of The Card: “The Hierophant’s roots reach deep, entwined around secrets and traditions and the ages. He believes in ritual and ceremony, in pursuing knowledge and deeper meaning, and in the rigidity of a belief system. He elucidates the spiritual and brings it to the earthly plane. He is calm and in possession of himself, and he is the teacher who can help unravel mysteries.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

We each have our own unique destiny. Our own gifts to discover and share. Our own way of being in the world.

Sometimes these gifts lie undiscovered for longer than necessary as we strive to be someone we clearly are not. Hoping, wishing and praying to be inside someone else’s skin… living someone else’s life as if it is our own. Comparison… the greatest distraction of all time. The fastest way to get off track. Often a clear path to feelings of hopelessness, envy, and disillusion… or worse, superiority.

There’s a reason why you came where you came to in this lifetime on this planet at this particular time. A reason for looking how you look, knowing what you know and possessing the special skills that are unique to you. It’s no mistake that you are who you are.

The mistake is not owning it. Not relishing it. Not diving into it with all you’ve got.

Not that we are encouraged to do this in our society. Nope, quite the opposite actually. We are led to believe there is a hierarchy. Some people are “better” because of what they own or what they look like or how their bodies… (or occasionally even how their brains) work. They are celebrated… celebrities right? We are taught to dress a certain way (fashionable, whatever that may mean), look a certain way (young and buff generally). Blend into society unless we can be the 1% that stands out.

But alas, as the world shifts of course all that is changing. Already doesn’t it feel so superficial you can hardly stand it? Good. That’s a start.

So what’s so special about you? Well everything, don’t you agree? Not special in a superior way, special in an “Of Service” kind of way. A stand on your own and be you kind of way.

Embrace that. Embody it. Stop trying to be what you are not, and put everything into what you are. From the very center of your being.

Your heart.

Namaste

The Devil

Published September 16, 2017 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

The Devil, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: The Devil, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

The Devil: “She feels the walls closing in on her, oblivious to the fact that she is not completely surrounded – there is the wide world open to either side! The skies cry with songs of beauty and freedom, but she tucks her head down to hide in fear, bound within walls and shackles, though it is only a thin thread that binds her, red as her hert’s blood, and the key is so close, so close. Look up! You wish to cry at her. Raise your eyes and look around you!

But her ears are deaf to any voice but that of the Devil. All she hears and feels is the Devil dancing above her, diving her, goading her, pressing down upon her. Tap tap tap goes the dancing of his hooves in a merry, mocking rhythm. Tap tap tap in the seductive patterns of entrapment of the willing. Tap tap tap he dances, and he laughs with the knowledge that it is with such ease he can hold a vibrant spirit captive.

Look up! Faintly, the voice pierces through the stones and seeps up into her body, and she reaches out.”

Meaning Of The Devil Card: “Losing independence, addiction and enslavement, caught up on the material realm, overindulgence, choosing to stay in the dark, pleasures, lust and desire. Feeling hopelessness close in and limit the options. The Devil plays on your desires with a masterful touch. Break free from the puppeteer’s strings by looking beyond the material blockades and temptations.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Swap out the devil for the ego; the busy, worrying, doubting, limiting mind. Holding the heart hostage, as per usual. Doing a dance of victory over your head after scaring you out of following your dreams.

Maybe you just feel like giving up. I know I feel like that sometimes… sometimes or possibly more often than I’d might like to admit.

This ascension process, it’s not easy. There is so much coming up that needs to be cleared, released, transformed and transmuted. It can be exhausting. I am no better at it than anyone else, no higher or lower. Just processing it one day at a time like you are. There is no need for a guru to take you through the process, for we all end up at the same place in the end, traveling the path as only we can. We can ask for assistance or advice, and then we can decide whether or not it resonates with us. That’s the great thing about good will.

But there are an abundance of gurus out there right now. Many cashing in on the process of leading you through it. Beware of all that. Tune inwards instead. It’s free and readily available. Trust yourself.

Stand up and brush yourself off. Then take back your heart. Decide to listen to it from now on; it will guide you like no other. Yes, you will still make mistakes, and you will still get hurt every now and then, particularly if you choose not to listen closely to it’s whispers.

But know that your body is fully equipt to lead you on. You have everything you need to get there. No one else can do it for you. No one else can take it away from you either. You make your choices. You read what you want and take of it what seems real and right to you. You set your intentions for the highest good of All. You use your heart center to weight your options. You banish the fear and take the chances.

It’s all you.

Kick that Devil right out of the picture.

There’s not trap, it’s all an illusion.

Spread your wings. Put your crown back on where it belongs.

You got this.

Namaste

Dee
