Happy Magickal, Marvellous, Manifesting, Merry, Mellow, Monday! How are you delicious lovely? Did you have a splendid week? Here it is a long weekend, but the bizarre thing was my mind was so wrapped up in something else, I totally blanked. So along rolls the weekend and I’m like “What, how did I miss a long weekend and not make plans?” Yup, total brain fart which did throw me into a slight tail spin as I would have normally planned out the whole weekend and be doing, doing, doing (yes I am a doer!) Now don’t get me wrong, ask me when the Full Moon is, any of the Sabbats, the energy of the month all of that stuff – I have it dialed, but I blanked on the long weekend.
So on Saturday (which was the Full Moon in Scorpio) I was pondering what the heck I was going to DO for 3 days without a plan. I kept hearing a whisper – can you just BE with no plan? Can you just SIT with no plan? Can you just PLAY with no plan? Gulp! So I took it for a test drive, I made sure to bang off all errands, tasks etc early on Saturday and then went to an art supply store – why? A few months ago I saw a painting at the Art Gallery that made me suck in my breathe, the colours were so vibrant and it looked “interesting”. It was made with alcohol inks on Yopo paper, so I filed that away for a few months and then when in the art store I grabbed the things to play with this medium. Something I haven’t done in a long while. As I brought my treasures home I could feel the itchiness to be ‘doing’ something, so instead I went and sat out in the garden and then things became even more odd, lol.
So there I am on Saturday afternoon ( the full moon) sitting in the backyard, writing, creating and playing with a new oracle deck (wait until she decides to come out to play, very cool deck). Whilst puppers (aka Danu) was munching on a bone. The sun was shining and I was focused on BEing and trying to reign in my mind, which was berating me with a list of things I should be DOing, when all of a sudden I heard this loud “peep” sound. I looked over to where it was and there was nothing. I turned my attention back to the cards and the sound came again, except even louder. “PEEP”. I look up and around and still nothing, then just as I’m about to turn away all of a sudden this tiny hummingbird appeared in the barren spot I was looking at. He hovered in the exact same spot for a minute, made his sound, shot up at a rapid rate up into the air, and I mean about 60 feet up, and then as if he had run out of gas, plummeted straight down to the earth and just before I thought he was going to hit the ground he did a massive swoop up into the air and went back to the exact (I mean exact) same spot he started. WTF! Do I need to call someone, is this a suicidal hummingbird? He did this 4 more times then vanished for about 5 minutes and then repeated the process. Okay, I’m watching and paying attention, but I still didn’t understand. To me hummingbirds are the representatives of Joy and I have to admit my heart did soar to watch him dance in the sky and perform, so very cool. I then did a bit of research and found he was doing his mating dance, trying to entice the lovely female hummingbirds to him and that I didn’t need to call the Crisis hotline! I then checked out my amazing Animal Speak book and Hummingbirds represent “Tireless Joy and the Nectar of Life, Accomplishing that which seems impossible.”
So with that burbling in my heart and body I really played with the Full Moon. This Full Moon in Scorpio was deliciously intense, all about transformation, or as I like to call it – “transforfuckingmation”. So I made sure to gift myself with time and ritual in the evening to do some powerful releasing and reframing, it was very cathartic. I also filled up a huge jar of water and left it out in the moonlight with all of my crystals and my anathame to be cleansed and charged. Yummers!
On Sunday again I practiced just BEing (gosh it can be tough) and I went back out into the plants and the yard and watched Danu frolic and play and then I noticed this Bee. Not that it was a huge Bee or anything like that but the fact that it hovered in front of my face, approximately 10 inches away and just kept in one spot and stayed there for minutes, would do a swoop and come back – made me pay attention. So you remember that game as a kid where you stare at your friend and who blinks first loses? That’s what it reminded me of! This Bee was amazingly persistent and sometimes on his swoop he would bring a buddy back and they would both hover 10 inches from my face, so close I could see their little furry legs and the shadows of their wings as they moved at light speed. Get this. They did this for an hour! A whole hour! (I so lost the blinking game to be honest). So I talked to them, sang to them, all thoughts went out the window and I just played and focused on them and then all of a sudden I snorted water out of my nose with laughter as I realised I was BEEing! I know Bee is big wisdom and overcoming the impossible but I wanted to learn more, so I did. BEE represents Fertility and the Honey of Life, No matter how great the dream there is a promise of fulfillment if we pursue it.”
Am I paying attention now? You bet! For me these are amazing lessons to be reminded of, it’s been an interesting few weeks. I was so grateful to literally have it thrust into my face in such a way I couldn’t miss it if I wanted to! Gotta love how Nature talks to us and gives us little nudges.
With that all being said, when I asked the cards who wanted to come out and speak on this gorgeous sunny day the cards that wiggled and jiggled to come and guide this glorious week are The Isis Oracle. Have you ever asked who Isis is? Goddess of the Skies, Magick and Wisdom are just a few of the titles she is given. Let me take a moment to introduce you to this lovely deck – “You are a powerful Soul and you are awakening. Your thoughts, feelings and inner world is changing, and so too is your outer world. When a Soul is growing in power and strength, it can benefit from guidance to help make the path into new way of being in the world that much easier. Isis offers Her wisdom and guidance to you to assist you at this time of spiritual growth and transition. She loves you, and wants you to shine and be your radiant self, filled with power and wisdom.”
The crystals that were very clear it was their turn are Rhodonite – is a stone of compassion, an emotional balancer that clears away emotional wounds and scars from the past, and nurtures love. Amethyst – It is thought of mostly as a protective stone. As it is linked to the crown chakra, it is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts. Selenite – embodies a high vibration energy that works to help you to bring light down from the higher realms into the physical body, to create personal transformation. And as always, a Selenite Wand (which amplifies). Oh yes, the gorgeous Calendula flowers and a sprig of fennel were most insistent. (Nobody need call the flower hotline as they immediately went into a vase of water)!
Okay let’s drop in, ground and get present, yes? I have a lovely visualisation to help you anchor into heaven and earth if you so desire. If not, just breathe in slowly through your nose and then sigh it out through your mouth. Allow yourself to settle and as you do I invite you to welcome in Gaia, Nature, Magick and the whispers. Let them play in your mind space and then when you are ready pick the card or cards that invite you to come play.
Did you remember to pick?
Shall we see, yes?
Spiritual resurrection is gifted to you now. Whatever part of you or your life you thought to be dead is being revived and will flourish back into life. Just as the Phoenix rises from the fire, transitioning from death, into life, so too will you rise again, healed and renewed.
Any trauma, ending, struggle or apparent defeat is not the end of the story for you now. What may appear to be an ending can sometimes simply be the forces of Ancient Feminine Power flowing into new pathways, pulling energy away from old forms so that they can transition into new forms. This can take short or long periods of time. It could be over days or years, weeks, months, decades. It doesn’t matter how long something appears to have been decaying, it will spring back into life at the right time.
Just as the River Nile subtly adjusts its course over time, so too will the River of Light that flows through you, filling you with life force and Divine Energy, move with innate wisdom. You can trust what is happening for you now. Something important to you is coming back to life. It might even feel like you are coming back to life after a period of increasing emotional numbness, physical or psychological struggle or spiritual disillusionment. It might also be a lifestyle, practice, business or relationship – new or old – that is coming to life now.
You are guided by Divine Priestess of the Phoenix, Sister Isis, to turn your face to the Sun. Just as the Sacred Scarab Beetle follows the movement of the Sun, you are encouraged to focus on the light and life that is seeking you now. Do not resign yourself to the way things have been. Let go of the past! Have hope and optimism. The past is over. Enjoy your rebirth.
WINGS OF ISIS
You have a special spiritual relationship with the angelic worlds. Part of your Soul purpose is to birth angelic consciousness and values such as fearlessness, compassion and service, into this human culture. Wings of Isis bring you angelic assistance and intervention, and confirmation that any impressions you may have had that you belong not only to the human kingdom but also to the angelic one, are correct.
This is no small task and although you are well equipped to succeed, there are beings that wish to assist you so that they may grow too and your success may be more graceful and swift. Isis, Divine winged mother, goddess and angel of healing, wishes to assist you with unconditional love now.
You will be asked to lift yourself up to higher and higher vibrational states of awareness and this may mean letting go of certain relationships, practices or states of being or even particular habits or thought patterns that would lower your vibration into fear, doubt or shame. Give yourself permission to just let this happen. You do not need to force anything. It is a matter of softening, allowing and trusting what feels right for you with absolute faith and bold, radical acceptance. It will be OK!
The more you accept this part of you, the more you shall draw into your world others like you. You will just feel comfortable with each other, because you all hold a similar refined vibration. Even in the midst of ordinary, everyday relationship, there is a sense of easy connection, mutual understanding and spiritual acknowledgment. The angels send you love and peace now and say, “We are with you, beloved one.”
KNOT OF ISIS
Each initiate has their own unique spiritual blueprint with particular skills, talents and higher destinies unfolding that use their unique attributes. Part of your spiritual blueprint is a special relationship to the energies of the Goddess. This means that no only do you have the important spiritual task of helping Her thrive in this world but you are afforded Her power, protection and abundance too. You are now deepening your connection to Her.
Part of your High Destiny this lifetimes is to heal and flourish through the Divine Feminine in Her many forms, especially in those forms that truly resonate and hold meaning for you. This healing will happen on your personal path and may well be part of the work that you offer in service to the world (which may be simply in how you live your life.
Your Soul is braiding or twining with the Divine Feminine energies in a particular form. For some that will be a specific goddess and the energetic process will often be strong and deep. The Initiate will feel as if they are integrating the part of this goddess that is not just in them, but is a part of their own consciousness. It is a deeply personal, spiritually powerful and beautiful growth experience for the Soul. This process does not make you lose your individuality.
Listen to your body-soul as it grows with Divine Feminine wisdom and trust that She will guide you, whether man or woman, deeper into your own healing which benefits us all.
