Transparent Oracle Sunday.
11, Gateway: Summer (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. This Gateway is about warmth and bounty, abundance and blessing, passion and wealth. Summer is a time of physical world manifestation and abundance, and it is also a time to bring magickal awarenesses into the open. After all, with an abundance of manifestation into the physical world, this would be an easy time to sense non-physical world abundances as they often happen around physical manifestations.
41, Gateway: The Celestial Realm (Above). Both our solar system, and the vast reaches of space beyond, have an effect on us, and we need to acknowledge this effect and be aware of it. While we should not allow only these effects to control our choices and actions, they are valid, and there can be higher meanings to seemingly mundane events at this time. The Celestial Realm Gateway has seven points, corresponding to the seven classical planets and the seven days of the week, offering both a broad and a more mundane influence; the seven-pointed star is also associated with angelic beings. This Gateway tells me that the events in my life right how have higher levels of meanings than I am perceiving at first glance. It might help to read today’s horoscope, or touch base with a Guardian Spirit.
12, Weather: Lightning (South): The direction of South corresponds with the element of Fire. Fire brings spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change through heating and separating, drying and shaping. 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.
I then stacked my cards and created my mandala. Okay, just like in reality, Lightning obliterates the details of the other cards. Scary, dramatic energies are on their way, and we have two Gateways through which they can pass. The effects of this blast of energy are important as well, and those effects will be shaped by the Gateway they move through. Abundance and manifestation will occur suddenly, and the patterns and shapes that result will have deeper meanings than I expect. I need to look twice, even three times if necessary, at everything that happens this week.
I am back after a bit of a rest from this blog. Hopefully my return will be filled with enthusiasm. If my cards are any indication, things should be happening for me.
