This week’s cards are from Kyle Gray’s “Angels and Ancestors Oracle” Cards.
Card Inscription: See your seeds grow.
Embrace the change that is on the horizon. Allow your dreams to become reality.
Spring is an exciting time because it has so much potential. Animals are coming out of hibernation, flowers are pushing up through the soil and the days are getting lighter and brighter. The Spring card features a wild hare, because in Celtic animal medicine, the hare brings intuition and rebirth. Hares are highly fertile beings and so their medicine can bring dreams to life.
You are ready to bring to life all of your ideas, inspirations, and projects. When this card appears, you are moving into a space that allows you to really grow, expand, and create in a way you’ve never done before. There are opportunities for growth, and if you’re starting something new, prepare for a major expansion in your life and soul.
Card Inscription: Release the old and rest.
Release all of the pressure and expectation weighing you down. Shed it all so that you can recover before moving into a time of renewal.
Autumn is when the trees are preparing for the long, cold winter and must let go of all the weight they are carrying in order to grow and prosper. Sometimes you too just have to surrender an aspect of yourself in order to continue to grow and prosper.
The raven on the Autumn card shows that there is an opportunity to heal at this time. In Celtic animal medicine, the raven is the bird of healing and initiation. The healing it brings is a shift that allows you to move into a more powerful psychic space where you can be more aware of your needs and desires, and be better supported.
You know what is heavy, what is holding you back. Is it a person, a situation, a dream? Like the trees letting go of their leaves and fruit in the autumn, it’s time to let it go. When you hold on, you try to control reality and that never works. When you let go, you make space for the new to enter your life. You are being guided by your angels and nature herself to release whatever is stopping you from moving forward. And you can do this.
3) SHIELD MAIDEN
Card Inscription: Make plans and focus.
Have a plan or strategy in place before moving forward.
The Shield Maiden is the female Knight in shining armor. In Viking traditions, women were seen as equal to men, and so joined them on their raids and fought with them on the battlefield. In this deck, the Shield Maiden brings a fiercely feminine energy – the power to be a warrior while retaining feminine sensitivity. She is ready to put her plan into action – she’s ready to go into battle. Her medicine helps us move beyond any unsettled feelings when our plans start to take shape and follow through with our strategies in order to be where we want to be. Shield Maidens worked together in times gone by to create shield walls of protection, so she also shows us how to work with others in order to bring our plans to fruition.
Taking some time to assess what your next steps will be. All great warriors have a plan. You are a sensitive being and if you are not prepared for the tasks you are taking on, you could end up feeling exposed and helpless. The ancestor guidance that is coming to you now is a reminder that you have a warrior’s heart and that you have it within you to be more prepared and focused that you have been recently. So, have a strategy in place and then let your guides support you as you move forward.
Each Tuesday, three cards are drawn at random from a deck of shuffled oracle cards and are posted on Facebook`where those who feel guided can choose a card for the week. The cards are revealed here before midnight each Monday. To participate, like BLISS-WORX on Facebook and you can join in the fun!
