Transparent Oracle Sunday!
37, Guide: Raven (North). North is the direction of Earth, and thus of the physical or physically formed or manifested world, and of nurturing, health, finances and security, and the wisdom associated with living simply, being well-grounded, and being in touch with our physical body. Raven is a clever bird, often portrayed as a trickster. Raven is also known for assisting us in the transformation from one realm to another, and known as a skilled communicator.
12, Weather: Lightning (South): South is the direction of the midday sun and the peak of power and illumination; this direction is associated with passionate drive and creativity. In the T-O, the weather associated with the South is Lightning, and oh boy, does this make sense. After all, South is about Fire, and Lightning is about a sudden eruption of heat and flame and light. The energies of this card are full of drama, and maybe even a bit scary at times, but they are a great way to break down and end the effectiveness of blockages.
66, Telepathy (Within). Within is the direction of the Self, and thus the cards associated with this direction deal with the ways our Self connects to the world and perceives the world, and the Self. This direction is mostly abstract, and yet is our bridge to the Universe around us. Telepathy corresponds to the brow chakra, the element of Air, and Spirit. It is about transmission and reception, and reminds us of the power of thoughts, ideas, visions and intentions; most importantly it is about connections of all kinds.
I then stacked my cards and created my mandala. The Lightning strikes, the Ravens take wing, and I listen for the unspoken messages of Air and Spirit! Looks like I am in for some sudden changes, and while they might be downright scary at first, if I pay attention to my needs, and my state of mind/body/spirit, the way will be clear and the road will be smooth and straight, once the dust settles.
This has been a frigid two weeks! When it gets this cold outside, my old house is drafty and chilly, and all I want to do is cuddle on the couch wrapped in a blanket, reading a good book and munching on something that is probably bad for me but brings comfort. Today, however, is the first day in a looooong time that the thermometer has gone way above freezing. I won’t see my lawn yet, and this warm spell is not going to last long, but I’ve got some energy, and thus here I am, posting once again.
My apologies for disappearing.
