7/19/15 Transparent Oracle Sunday!

Transparent Oracle Sunday!

60, Polarity: Red Dragon (Below). The direction of Below is not easily associated with spirituality, yet it is a powerful symbol representing the opportunity to create a strong foundation, and to connect to the tools and powers of the Underworld.  The Red Dragon’s energy begins within, and radiates outward with amazing power.  While the Red Dragon is in a sense about balance, it presents only one extreme for our consideration: inner power that expands outward.  This card is about passions and drive, and even the life essence itself, all of which begin within and then manifest outward.

39, Guide: Wolf (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.  Wolves are seen by many as dangerous, even evil, but we should always keep in mind when we are working with Wolf that he is the ancestor of the dogs we humans love so much.  Wolf has a strong sense of family, and of rank within that family.  Wolf can communicate over great distances, and has the stamina to travel those distances in the first place.  Wolf has keen instincts, and a strong urge to protect his territory.

8, Guide: Eagle (East). East is the direction of the rising sun, and thus of new beginnings and fresh ideas, as well as knowledge, intellectual ideas and thoughts.  Eagle is considered the King of Birds, and often is seen as a Divine Messenger because he can fly to such amazing heights.  He tells of being able to see into the distance, and of achievements (and associated honors) gotten through courage and focus.  When Eagle is around, courage and perspective and vision will bring great results.

I then stacked my cards and created my mandala.  Interesting; Eagle and Wolf are superimposed on each other, like a two-faced, one-headed creature.  The Red Dragon has appeared for the second time this month, and this time she feels different.  Eagle and Wolf are both about courage and perspective.  Eagle is the Divine Messenger who can see far into the distance.  He achieves a lot because he can focus so well. Wolf can communicate over great distances and then travel those distances.  He protects his territory and the family which resides there.  And the Red Dragon reminds me that these abilities begin within me; I should look for them to manifest within me first, and then begin to affect the world around me.
