Transparent Oracle Sunday!
3, Element: Air (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. The element of Air represents the purest of clear thought, logic, and the ability to analyze. Air is also connected with knowledge, education, science, and inspiration or a new way of thinking about things.
13, Element: Fire (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. Fire has often been used as a representation of Spirit or the Divine, and this makes sense. Fire brings transformation, animation or life, courage, and intent. Fire has its dangers, though; it brings transformation through destruction that brings new birth.
19, Guide: Bee (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. Bee is about teamwork and harmony and a sense of community, and about service to that community. The service is performed for the greater good, and without an expectation of acknowledgment. Bee is not about the individual’s needs, but rather it is about the needs of the hive, and often the individual is sacrificed in order to allow the hive to continue.
I then stacked my cards and created my mandala. There are some pretty powerful energies in play today; a fresh new infusion of air into the mind and the peak of effects of heat and light are nothing to laugh at. It looks as if the best way to manifest and make use of these effects as they appear is by focusing on the highest good of all, not just me and my own beliefs and views. If I can keep this in mind through the week, and if I can refrain from allowing strong emotions or cold analysis from guiding me without in influx of compassion and mercy, I should be a happy camper by this time next week. This is not an easy intention to stick to!
