The Star: “Silver gilded footsteps glide of silver flowing streams with the silver glowing starlight etching night in silver seams.

There is no sun. There is no moon. In the hushed stillness of the blackest night, only a trail of stars glitters like a fortune in diamonds upon the velvet carpet of the sky. The river of the Milky Way pours across the heavens in a cascade of starry pinpricks, and she comes dancing down that lane to where the celestial river runs to the silver etched earthly waters.

Water and earth and air become a single element in her presence. Walk on one, swim through the other, it matters not which; they are as she wills them to be.

She dances, and her feet are so light, there is but the barest disturbances of ripples upon her watery dance floor. She dances the dance that the stars have choreographed in their millenia of gazing down on the earth. It is their silent homage to the burning spirit they have witnessed. It is the dance and flow of human life, condensed into a pure essence of painful beauty. It is Hope made into a visual form.

She stretches and strains, sways and arches, leaps to impossible heights in time to a tempo that beats in the silent pulses of the stars above. A cascade of river droplets sprays for the from her swirling form. Where each droplet falls, a flowery tendril slowly sprouts.

She dances tirelessly through the night, inhuman and yet embodying humanity in her very being. When the glow of dawn touches the eastern sky, she clasps her silvery cloak tight. There is a sudden weariness to her eyes, but it is edged with triumph as well. She steps up the slowly furling carpet of the Milky Way, back to her sister stars in the night, where they gleam and wait for the next true night to dance again.”

Meaning: “Regaining hope, faith in the future, inspiration. Finding the still and silent place within your being of serenity, tranquility amid trouble, harmony, offering without reservations, Sharing and being generous. The harshness of daylight or even moonlight is gone, and there is nothing but the calm and nonjudgmental eyes of the stars. There is a peace to that, a space to gather up, prepare, and uplift the spirit. Let loose doubts and fears to the embrace of the night. The stars have always been symbols of guidance and hope, the light to lead you home. A resilient fish, carp symbolize strength, perseverance, courage, and determination of spirit. The chrysanthemums, commonly representative of longevity, are also symbols of hope.”

“You demi-puppets that by moonshine do the
green sour ringlets make,
whereof the ewe not bites,
and you whose pastime is to make midnight mushrooms…”

-Shakespeare, The Tempest (Act V, Scene I)

Forty days and forty nights we traveled to the underworld and back with Venus. We have been down to the depths of of our emotions, weeded through the debris and cleaned house. Many of us have relived uncomfortable lessons, gained clarity and broken old patterns. Released the old and made space for the new. Let go of the belief systems that held us stagnant for too long. We will never be the same. And that is a good thing.

Now we step forward, renewed. We feel the shift in the collective energy. Now we can expand into a new freedom, a new way of being in the world. Passion, joy and inspiration are available to us in abundance. Our opportunities are as limitless as the stars. And all will come to us with as much grace and ease as we are willing to invite to receive it.

The struggle is over and we can breathe easier. We have six weeks to finish off this year; powerfully, courageously, boldly. What do you desire to create? Where will you focus your energy?

And what else is possible?

Namaste

Six of Cups

Six of Cups: “She wanders along the path until she comes to her destination. The creek burbles along its bed not far below her chosen spot, and she sets up her table and teacups to receive her visitors – first her friends from home, with their shiny button eyes and thread sewn smiles.

And then the shyer ones begin to creep forth from the shadows and hollows of the woods: the sylphs and nymphs from the glassy water below, the dryads from the birch and the beech and oak, and the goblins from under. These are the companions she has been waiting for, and she greets them cheerfully. They are drawn forth by her innocent chatter and by the mind that has not yet been chained by boundaries of ‘what must be,’ and definitions of impossibility. In her world, fish are not bound by the water of the creek – they may swim through the air above that glassy path – and the sylvan company she entertains at her table are as welcome as the ones made of cloth and stuffing.

The Queen of the Faeries steps forth, and the fantastic retinue draws back, but the girl just smiles, pours a cup of tea, and offers it with a smile.

The Six of Cups is a reminder of childhood innocence, good intentions, noble impulses, simple joys and pleasures. It is not meant to be overly sentimental, but more an urging to remember the open-mindedness of a child’s perspective, and to push back the narrowness that folds in on you over time with the complexities of life and responsibility.”*

Where’s your imagination? Are you using it to its full potential? What can you dream into existence? Where can you shed insecurities, limitations and judgments? How can you add a little playtime, a little fun, a little excitement into your life? Things are getting way too serious!

Do you remember what it is like to see things with child-like wonder? To accept people at face value? To slow things down and just Be? Have you ever tried to get anywhere fast with a toddler, who is busy picking flowers and following ants and inspecting their fingers and toes?

We get all caught up in the should’s of life. The have-to’s, the obligations and responsibilities. The same old exhausting routines. We draw on our vast life experience to decide things; we judge outcomes without actually seeing them through. We judge people without hearing them out or getting to know them first. We jump to conclusions, assume the worst, lower our expectations. Have you ever known a toddler to lower their expectations? No, that never happens. They just assume they can have it all and have a fit if it doesn’t happen. Then, they get over it and start again. Onwards and upwards right?

So, how can you loosen up a bit? How can you add more fun? How can you shake things up, lighten your load? Incorporate some fun into your life, raise your vibration. Laugh, sing, dance, skip. Be free.

Namaste

Eight Of Pentacles

Eight Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Eight Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Eight Of Pentacles: “With diligence and patience, the spider crafts her gossamer web. Dawn dusts an array of dewey stars across the threads.

Weaver, weave a pattern:
weave a dream of summer musk;
weave the drape of autumn dusk.

Weaver, weave a fate:
weave a life’s frail, anchored line;
weave the pale moon’s waxing signs.

Weaver, weave a web;
craft each silky, precious thread;
artist’s inhibitions shred.

Spider works hard. She weaves her web through the night, each thread placed with care to create a pattern at once beautiful and built for a purpose. It is like a meditation, an intricate dance with eight legs: spin, step, step, hold, place thread, twist, and step; and repeat.

The Eight Of Pentacles embodies a craftsman, someone possessing great patience and who is attentive to details. It is a call to be absorbed in a project, to seek out knowledge, and pursue a higher understanding. But this must be done with practical experience, using one’s own hands and body and mind to create. This is often what is required to achieve success – a practical application of intellect and skill to a task to see through to the finish.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Spider webs take time, patience and determination to create. They must be woven in a specific way, step by step by step. You can’t skip a step, or the web will not be created in detail, it will lack something, strength, beauty, wholeness. A moving meditation to create a work of art, both functional and beautiful; stronger than should be possible. Spider signifies creation, working together with the elements, body, mind and spirit. Spider is about weaving the web of community, bringing people together, creating a bigger picture.

Spider brings mixed feelings to many of us, we fear spider more often than we respect her. Yet if we can resonate with her, if we can slow down and watch her magic, we can learn so much from her. Her dedication to her craft, her ingenuity and creativity. Her ability to take the opportunity in front of her and create something intricate with steady momentum, always moving forward, creating something new.

This is a call to take a hand in creating your own dreams, one thread at a time. Slowly, steadily, with patience, mindfulness and commitment creating something strong and beautiful. There is no way to rush things here, manifestation must be done in increments, the final masterpiece woven together over time.

The most important message is to start now, and put in the time and effort necessary to create what it is that you dream of. Do the work and reap the rewards. Have absolute faith in yourself to complete the project. Pour your heart and soul into it.

Namaste

King Of Swords

King Of Swords, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

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

King Of Swords: “Like the vertical sword he holds at the ready, he is a pillar of strength and morality. He holds power over life and death. He is a warrior king, sword always drawn so that he can be prepared to spring into action, should the need arise.

He is a leader, riding triumphantly at the forefront of his army. He carries through with his actions, following the path of truth that the blade lights for him. He is led on by the silent wisdom of the owl. She perches, balanced upon the very tip of his blade, and her eyes swirl with all the ancient knowledge that her kind has been imbued with by human beliefs.

Mirroring the owl, he is also led by the shadowy ravens that trail at his side like Hugin and Mugin, Odin’s twin ravens, “Thought” and “Memory”. They fly away to seek out truths and bring their findings back to be whispered in his ear. In conjunction, they are the balance of night and day. They are the sharp clarity of of the sun, and the owl is the truth that can only be heard distinctly in velvety light of stars and moon. This is what is embodied in those avian companions.

The shadows of the night descend upon his shoulders, a living mantle of purple, a colour the ancient Greeks associated with royalty, and the base of the throne is etched with da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, symbolic of the blend of art and science, of the symmetry in the human body and in the whole of the Universe.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

This is a message about truth and balance. Karma, justice and integrity. It is about code of ethics and moral conduct. It is a reminder that we always have a choice to take the high road, setting our intentions to be for the highest good of all involved.

People are not always kind and life is not always fair. Things are not always black and white. But we are only ever in control of our own reactions, never of other people’s actions. We always have a choice.

We create karma as we go along, putting our vibes out into the  world for the better or for the worse. We decide what we put out, how we treat people and how we see ourselves. When we make our decisions from a heart centered place, we are actually more powerful. We expand and move past the contracted state of fear, anger, lack and judgment; into a lighter way of Being. This is available to anyone and everyone who commits to it. And this is what enlightenment really is. A larger perspective, a deep understanding of the connection between all living beings.

Where in your life could you take the high road? Where can you step free from the drama and refuse to be caught up in the chaos? This is where your power lies. In the balance. Of the space between. Be discerning. Stand your ground. See the bigger picture. And learn to walk away when you need to.

Namaste

Seven Of Pentacles

Published June 10, 2018 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

Seven Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Daily Angel Card: Seven Of Pentacles, from the Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artwork by Barbara Moore

Seven Of Pentacles: “She stands in the verdant garden that she has lovingly tended. She is the guardian dryad of the wood. She is a part of this place, this Eden of her own making. The peaches are ripe; a magical energy writhes in each lush globe. Peaches are a fruit of summer,  of long days of relaxation. Their nectar is honeyed longevity. The sweet tang of their juice rolling over the tongue is like a visceral memory of summer.

To pluck them or not? The tattooed waves churn on her body with her speculation. She lays her hand on the fruit, ready to take it. It pulses faintly as if it contains the heart the tree, beating with the pulse of sap through the branches. Will these peaches still sparkle with that living glow once taken from the tree, or will they just become dull as the normal fruit in her basket?

The Seven Of Pentacles challenges you to make a choice: to eat and enjoy the fruit in the basket, or to leave them to flower and ripen and continue upon the branch? It is about reaping the reward for effort and work. The seeds have been sown; the time of work and waiting has passed. They have grown and come to fruition. Now is the moment to appreciate. It is a calm moment of consideration of alternatives and different approaches.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

An opportunity is coming your way, will you take it? Maybe you are fearful that it isn’t for you, or maybe you feel that it looks too good to be true. Maybe you are worried that if you take this opportunity you will miss something better, and you should leave it and continue waiting for the next big thing. But yet will you miss out on it all if you don’t act now?

Seven is the number of life path, of truth and of seeing past the illusion. It is a number of confirmation and of forward motion; of infinite possibility. What is on offer here is actually more important than it may seem. What you choose will have long term effects in your life, shifting and changing your future. Will you choose the fruit, ripe and ready for picking? The peach symbolizes health, long life and even immortality. Or will you leave it on the branch for someone else to pick. If you leave it for too long it will ferment, drop off and fertilize the ground for something new… but you will need patience to wait again for it to come to fruition.

Be courageous, especially if you are normally not! Choose something different to create something new in your life.

Take a leap of faith.

Namaste

Three Of Cups

Three Of Cups: “There is a song that dwells at the ocean’s floor. It lurks in the chasms. It hides in the voices of whales and the squeals of dolphins. It haunts the reefs and caverns. And then, once in a great while, like an air bubble that has been gathering under the crust, it bursts forth in an unstoppable swell to rise towards the surface.

The sirens of the deep have been waiting for this moment. They come together when they feel the signal that trembles through the waves to all the corners of the sea. They sing. Their voices weave a counter melody and descant to the ocean’s song. Laughter rings in trills and glissandos that send ripples from their lips. That gleeful shudder of the waters summons the denizens of the sea, all the varied creatures among the ocean swells, to follow in the wake of the sirens.

The very movement of all the beings who swim through the waters is an elegant dance of undulations, a powerful slicing through the waves. The liquid dance of the sea bursts to the surface, and the song echoes to the vast vault of the heavens.

The Three Of Cups is a call to celebration, dancing, and singing. Friendship is its key component, and companionship, relying on others, and developing community and team spirit.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

The golden cups are full so right there is confirmation of abundance, of always having enough, of the Universe providing. But there is something deeper here to the meaning of abundance, something we talked about yesterday. There is connection, companionship, friendship, relationship, support and trust. There is sharing. Celebrating. Offering. Blue, the color of communication. Green, the color of the heart. Gold, the color of abundance. The mermaid’s tales woven together, creating sacred and safe space. Their eyes are open, honest and direct. They freely offer what they have, knowing that there is more where that came from. There is no lack here.

The mermaids are encapsulated in a bubble of protection, everyone in the group is safe to share their deepest secrets. Trust is given and respected. Everyone is equal, no one has more than another, and each is willing to share with the others to ensure this.

There is a hint at the stone Larimar here and it’s soothing creamy blue healing energy of the Divine Feminine and Goddess. It is the stone of the dolphin, the mermaids and the ocean herself. It is an opener of the throat chakra and assists us in communication with the higher elemental realms. If you have a piece of larimar, wear it, place it in your pocket or under your pillow to honour the Goddess energy within. Larimar will help you to strengthen your faith in your connection to others, drawing those to you who are in alignment with you now.

Namaste

Ace Of Swords

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
