Eight of Cups: “Seeker of the Seas, dive down, dive deep. Plumb the sapphire waters so dark that they pulse with the nacreous gleam of black pearls. Slice through the waters, O seeker of truth; slide with lithe body through the currents and undertows; turn away from the sunlight of the world up above that blinds with its too sharp brilliance. Like the delicate luminescence of the deep sea life, there are some things that can only be seen when the eyes are enlarged int he dim, nether-lit otherworld. Dive down, seeker of the seas!

Eight of Cups beckons you to follow and delve within for personal discovery and answers. Turn away and disengage from the material world for the spiritual. Leave the sharp lines and edges, the harsh sounds that pierce the dry air with a clarion call. The sea’s embrace is much softer and more sensual, and connected by the ripples and the flows. The water softens the assaults on the senses, so that everything becomes fluid and smooth.

The Eight of Cups shimmers with the distant touch of the sun’s rays from above. They tumble down into the depths. The falling glimmer and shine urges you to move on to catch hold of one of them. Now is the time to let go and allow all the weariness to ripple away from you and fade into the waves.”

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Notice how the cups in this depiction are not needing to be held upright, full. Instead they appear like torches, illuminating the darkness. Notice that the sea here feels like another realm of reality, another dimension; the shapes of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn looming in the distance. Notice her tail is one of a mermaid, but also reminiscent of a butterfly wing, a sign of imminent transformation. And what does water stand for? The depth of our emotions of course.

If we can surrender to the quest; dive down deep; find some solitude and give ourselves a chance to contemplate, learn and assimilate the energies? Then we will illuminate our new path, with grace and ease. The shadows will be revealed and the light shined upon them. Resolution can be achieved.

We are being told that we must dive into the murky depths, but we are never alone. See the cups as your spirit guides, lighting your way. It is when we refuse to dive deep that we hold ourselves back. We deny the lessons, we get stuck in the same patterns. Now we have a chance to see why, to see what has been going on. To take responsibility and to set the intention for something new.

The butterfly wing lets us know that when this part of our journey is undertaken and the work is done, we can finally rise above it, transformed. Saturn is considered the planet of karma, of boundaries, awareness and perception. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and knowledge, of spiritual purpose and blessings. The moon represents the Divine Feminine aspect, illumination, enlightenment, magic and mystery.

Be alone today for at least a while. Meditate. Contemplate. Build and altar. Listen to your body. Release your mind. Invite your Higher Self in to guide you. Surrender to the silence. Do not fight the change. Trust.

Namaste

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

The Hierophant

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.”*

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 World

Published January 19, 2019 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

Four Of Swords

Published January 12, 2019 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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

Four Of Swords: “Her limbs are composed in the attitude of death, but this is not that final sleep. It is just a moment of rest and recovery. Her mind floats free. She is adrift in an ether of meditation. Her eyes are closed, but she sees with another kind of vision. The sigil of an eye upon the blade she holds clasped to her chest sees down into her heart and out into the world around with a clarity that she strives for in this inner contemplation and self-imposed exile.

She floats along with the lotuses, symbols of spiritual and mental purity. Lotuses grow from the slime and much of a lake, purified by the water to emerge in the sunlight as lovely flowers. They are a living metaphor for a seeker of spiritual truths. The pink lotus in particular is a symbol of enlightenment.

So, too, the swords that pillow her head as she meditates, as if to pierce through the fog of uncertainty and dissemble to reach a state of serenity. However, this is but a momentary rest. Her hands grip the sword tightly. She knows there are many ordeals to face still. She breathes deeply, imprints the fragrance of the lotuses in her mind. She is ready to draw the sword from the sheath and step back into a world of strife and conflict once this respite is through, though perhaps with a much clearer mental state this time.

The Four of Swords urges you to take a moment of respite. Close your eyes, and find that still and silent place at your core, where inner strength resides. Draw from that reserve in the times to come.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

This is a message of inner strength and resiliency. Being able to trust in yourself to get through what the Universe brings your way. Not everything is easy, there are challenges coming. But every part of the journey is necessary to get where you need to be.

We always have the choice to face obstacles with strength, courage, grace and ease. We always have the choice to refuse to succumb to the victim frame of mind. Choose your thoughts carefully for this may not be as difficult as you think. Your inner resources are prolific, use them to their full potential.

You have everything you need in order to move forward. Take a moment to center yourself, breathe, call in your team and then channel your inner warrior. Set some positive intentions and focus your energy on the best possible outcome for the Highest Good Of All.

Then move forward fearlessly, knowing that this is only a speedbump, not a mountain. You are still en route to your dreams.

Namaste

Temperance

Published January 3, 2019 by Dee ~ Archangel Oracle

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

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

Temperance: “She gathers herself, reaches within for the calm center, that place of balance. From her center, she feels the dragon and phoenix stirring. They twine about one another. They embrace in a sinuous twisting of scale and feather until it seems that one melts into the other. They coil around each other in a timeless battle for supremacy, choreographed in an elegant waltz of give and take, push and pull. They swirl about her in a maelstrom that assaults the senses. Like a maestro, she watches over and reins in one or the other when she senses any imbalance so that harmony is maintained.

Earth and sky, fire and water, male and female, summer’s warmth and lush growth and winter’s chill winds bearing down: these opposites flow one into the other in the cyclical and endless push of yin and yang. They are perfectly balanced against one another; in fact, they are given purpose and definition by the existence of diametric opposites.

Without water, fire rages utterly unchecked and all consuming, burning itself out eventually in a terrible conflagration. And without fire, the waters are lightless and drowning, flooding until there is only a still, silent mirror of nothing. By defining each other’s limits, they both become imbued life and become life-giving, tempered to co-exist in just the right balance, for too much of one, and the other will be smothered.”

Card Meaning: “Harmony and equilibrium, balancing of opposites, healing. Moderation of extremes, self-restraint, harnessing absolute forces, and reining the in to be wielded to a purpose. Holding opposites apart from one another denies their power of unity. By drawing them together to merge in a measured fashion, and understanding what one bestows upon the other, a beautiful synthesis can be created. Sometimes all that holds the two apart is a wall of belief. Being flexible and understanding that there is more than one way to perceive the world can go a long way towards breaking down that invisible wall.”*

~ By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Love can come in many forms and if we are going to anchor the energies of the Christ Consciousness back here on Gaia, we must be able to align with and present all of the aspects of love available to us. There is openness and receptivity in love, seeing the Divine connection in each and every living being reflected back to us; showing us our own connection to it. There is acceptance; loving despite where someone is at, what they have done or are capable of. Loving despite the past or the present holds space for them to align with a higher frequency in the future, even the immediate future. Releasing judgment. Releasing fear. Embracing the polarities of our differences; bringing them together in balance.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, finally meeting as equals. Playing their individual roles and also coming together to make something alchemical, powerful and profound. The power of the dragon and the rebirth of the phoenix. With the two energies working together, anything can be co-created.

Open to possibility. Open to co-creation. Open to harmony, acceptance and to receptivity.

It is time to open yourself up to Love.

Namaste

Ace Of Pentacles

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

Ace Of Pentacles: “It is the possibility of prosperity, abundance, and security. It is the promise of wealth and well being, of flourishing and reaping the rewards of hard work. Energy spent will see returns. A seed has been dropped into the fertile earth. What will sprout from that seed? What strange flora will burst forth? The suit of pentacles is a promise that something will come, but it will require patience and work. What grows is what you make of it. The seed must be watered and nurtured, for nothing grows in a void, and success requires more than dreams and fantasies. Water with desire, and nurture with faith and effort and diligence.

In ancient Egypt, the lizard was representative of good fortune and divine wisdom. They are the denizens of the earth and the guardians for the pentacles: salamanders, chameleons, dragons. They lead the way from nebulous dreams and the fantastic, ever-changing realms of desires and wishes into the reality of being, of tangible actuality, and of the world.”*

~ By Shadowscapes Tarot, by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

And here we step into another fresh start. A clean slate, ready to be brought to life with our hopes, dreams, hard work and dedication. What will we create?

This is a very auspicious message to start the year with; a reminder of the abundance and prosperity available to us all. Look at how far we have come in our journey. Look at how bright the future could be, if we choose to create it as so. It is all up to us.

The predominance of green and gold speaks of the heart center and solar plexus; the meeting of the heart and the will to create the fertility of abundance. Receptivity, authenticity and integrity meets self-confidence, will, courage and personal power. Together these potent forces make for a focused, expansive and successful future.

What seeds will you plant as we step into this new beginning? What will you choose to create and how can you do it with passion, joy, self-belief and an expanded awareness of what is really possible for you? Get really clear and set an intention for this year. Take some time alone to dream through it in as much detail as possible. Pull it towards you by putting your heart and soul into it’s visualization, seeing it, feeling it, sensing it, experiencing it before it comes to pass. Knowing that it will come to pass.

What else is possible?

Namaste
