We picked some cards for you! As usual, the interpretations you can read below are our own (not verbatim from the deck’s booklets).
Note: If you have been following us, you might know we have recently bought a country home in Italy [if not, read more on http://www.sanctuaryofjoy.org/en/sanctuary-of-joy-new-home-in-italy/ ].
Today’s Oracle cards have been pulled and photographed on one of our windows overlooking the beautiful countryside.
Even if you just chose just one card, by reading all of the descriptions you might notice how, this time around, there is definitely a common theme surrounding all of the cards we picked:
A) “Gecko” (from “The Secret Language of Animals Oracle cards” by Chip Richards) is card number #33 in this deck! After all, Gecko’s are known to bring luck, and the overall spirit of this card is that he journey you are embarking (or have embarked) upon is going to be blessed. Trust the journey, and trust that everything will happen in divine timing. This, anyhow, does not mean standing still and just waiting for things to happen! You need to be open to change and embrace its inevitability: change is the only constant in life and you should not perceive it as scary, but flow with it.
B) “Finish what you’ve started” (from the “Magical Unicorns Oracle cards” by Doreen Virtue) reminds us of the importance of completing what you have started. Even if you might feel overwhelmed and would like to run away from the circumstances you got yourself in, leaving things half way might only offer temporary relief but then come back to haunt you with regrets and doubts about what could have happened if you only had continued on the path you had started. Therefore, the advice is to not quit. Even if you feel tired and don’t know how to make progress, the best way is to just do one thing at the time, take small but constant steps every day and, before you know it, you’ll see how much progress you have actually made! Don’t spend your energies worrying, but keep going, and be brave!
C) “Tribal Spirit Dancer” (from the “Native Spirit Oracle cards” by Denise Linn) first fell off the deck by itself while shuffling. We initially thought this wanted to tell us something but, to be sure, we placed it back in the deck, continued shuffling, and picked a card deliberately. To our surprise, the same card came up! The meaning of this card ties a lot into the one of the previous two cards (A and B) in the sense of letting go of attempts to control the outcome and not worrying about all the things we think we need to do to make progress but, instead, to embrace the flow of events and to naturally be guided to our destinations. Us trying to re-shuffle the deck was an unconscious attempt to have control over the events, but the card coming up again was a reminder to just joyously flow, trusting the rhythms of life and its magic, and find freedom in the process. This also applies to all those situations where you feel you need to do this or that to please others and to comply to the ‘shoulds’ imparted by society; just letting go of expectations and accepting what naturally comes to you will set you free of worries and you will be filled with all the pleasure that the Universe can provide.
D) “Compass” (from “The Enchanted Map Oracle cards” by Colette Baron-Reid) comes as an advice that, even when entering un-charted territory, you can always find your gravity center by connecting to your higher power. By keeping aligned with the Divine, keeping your vision steady as your north star, having faith and not wavering in doubts you will manifest your dreams.
We hope this reading was useful and inspirational for you – let us know!
