The Corn

Corn is sustenance, we eat the kernels and use the rest of the plant to build things and to make fire to warm our homes and cook the kernels. The stalks can be used for roofing and with the mud of Mother Gaia, make walls. Everything about Corn is abundant, it helps us and is tangible.

Corn is prosperity in the real, physical world. Corn also says there is more than enough to go around. Let go of thoughts and fears of scarcity and not having enough or that someone will steal your abundance. Understand that the universe will provide, but you must be in a relationship with it in order to receive. You will reap what you sow. 

We work hard to plant new ideas, and we hope they will grow and give us goodness and abundance in the future. Even when things were difficult, you did not lose faith in what you have planted. You have kept going.

The corn takes time to grow and provide the abundance you are about to reap. It is time to be warry of shortcuts, things that seem to be too good or inner feelings of being entitled to a certain outcome. 

Let go of insecurity, feelings or thoughts of there not being enough, or that someone else could take what is yours. You have all you need for success.

Remember, it is always darkest before the dawn but you continued on, planting and nurturing. Now the spirit of the Corn comes to honor this and show you how bountiful the harvest is. 

Now is the time to reap the rewards of effort, and trust. Regardless of whether the rewards are financial or the kind of prosperity measured in quality rather than quantity. Now is the time to feel blessed but don’t forget to share your good fortune.

As we anticipate good fortune and abundance be careful! Do not try to rush the harvest of abundance. Get rich quick schemes and shortcuts will not help, they may damage the things you have planted.

The Gatherer

The Gatherer speaks to a time before we grew grains in fields and harvested them according to the seasons. The gather found seeds, berries and fruit in places that others might see a barren and desolate. The gatherer can provide when others cannot.

Now is time to take stock of your life. Look at what you wish for and what you do not. What you have around you is abundance if you choose to recognise it for what it is. Be thankful in advance for what it is your able to build with what you have. 

Seeing scarcity when there is abundance drags you down. Whatever your situation use your skills and abilities to bring new things into your life, those things will bring bounty and riches.

The Serpent

Two serpents entwine on the Caduceus, the symbol used by doctors for health and knowledge. The serpent is a powerful symbol of both. Perhaps it is time for you to start working on both. Give up bad habits such as smoking which damages your body. Learn something new that will bring new abundance into your life. If you are worried about what to study or not know what to do bring into your life, the serpent is there to guide you.

Follow the Serpents guidance and you will be abundant and happy. Even if what you receive is a message to rest, do so. Perhaps you are receiving this message because you are trying too hard. You are not “going with the flow.”

Queen of the Moon Oracle – Full Moon – Power

Often in our lives we play a lesser role than we might because we hesitate or do not want to draw attention to ourselves. We assume a lesser role than we are capable of. 

The Full moon card is sent to you to remind you, encourage you to stand up and take your power. Above all, be confident in yourself. Let that confidence be your clarity and your rock going forward. Do not speak with a weaker, lesser voice than was given to you. Take back you power by standing tall and speaking clearly.

The Lower World

The Lower world is not the Underworld. The Lower World is a place of treasures and good things that have been lost and forgotten but not discarded. This is the place where you find a pleasure and a skill you had when you were a teenager and had forgotten because you “grew up.”

When we join with a group, we can make ourselves small because we want to be liked. If you were a good skier when you were young, and are now finding the joy in skiing coming back, show your skill and ability and do not make yourself appear less than you are because those you are with are not so adept or capable.

Let your past be something to treasure and enjoy and be happy with. Yes, there are treasure and abilities to be recovered, there are also lessons that you learned that need to re-examined to see how relevant they are now and whether they can benefit you.

The Ghost Dance

The Ghost Dance of the American Plains Indians united the spirits of the living with those of the ancestors to bring peace to the world. 

Ancestors, your parents and grandparents are important. Remember and value the things they gave to us, materially and spiritually, the happy times and the good times. 

When we honour and value them, we are in harmony with them. When we blame them for what we encounter in our lives today, they bring pain and unhappiness.

Be open to receiving from our spiritual ancestors. Take a moment at the start of the day or the end of the day to say “Thank you father”, “Thank you mother” for the person you are today. They helped to give the values and the approach to life that has carried you to where you are now.

Now is the time to use the energy and life they gave you, value the abundance of them and those times. 

Nostalgia and dreams of a lost youth, a lost life is not benefiting you. They are making you sad and unhappy. Those thoughts are draining your energy. Look at what is making you feel this way and be determined to move on from it. End it. Determine to be happy and abundant.

Lightning

Lightning, is a huge discharge of energy from the sky to the ground. On the ground it can damage and it can create. In a forest, it may destroy some trees as it hits the ground but if it creates a fire, it is a cleansing fire, consuming dead trees and undergrowth to make way for new trees and new plants and growing things in which animals can live and hunt and give birth to new generations.

Think of this card as being a message for what is inside of you. If you are full of old ideas and old habits that are tired and add nothing to your life than this card is sent to you to recognise that those things must go and the new energy from the Upper World is here to show you the benefits of new creative endeavours.

The Shaman energy of this card brings gifts and cleansing all at the same time, let the old go, and embrace the new. If you need to sit quietly to allow these things to happen, do so. It is time to accept that you must change, that things in your life must change. Prepare to move on as you accept what it is you are moving to. Not to do so will mean you miss the opportunity and will be destined to repeat past unhappiness until the next bolt of lightning arrives from the Upper World.

Queen of the Moon Oracle Card Wanning Gibbus – Realization.

Wanning Gibbus starts at the end of a Ful moon and lasts until the moon is in its third Quarter.

The message this card brings is to pay attention to being self-aware of your life, and especially your habits. There might be good habits, and there might be bad habits. Some we can encourage and some we can work to discourage and end.

Thank you.

The Blade

The Blade is a cutting tool. It represents your mind, body, and spirit. Pointing upward, it summons the power of heaven to help you manifest. What is that you wish for? Be clear in your thoughts. It will cut cords attached to you that no longer serve you or are toxic in their effect on you. It is a thing of action. Use it now, use it with best intention and not as a weapon. Use it to heal those old relationships or places by letting them go.

The blade is sent to help you with your dreams which are grounded and stagnant. Blade can help you move forward because it frees you from things that do not mean anything to you. Do not use it in anger or bad intention. If you do, the karmic outcome will be worse than you had imagined. Always use the blade positively to help you move forward.

The Time Master

Humanity perceives time as moving linearly, a straight line from birth to death. Even when we look at our watches, we see the hands moving around the face in a steady, even progression of minutes, hours and days. This linear view leads us to the feeling that there is not enough time. We are always referring to something that has a finite ending.

In reality, time does not move in a linear path, when we are in the NOW, in the moment, we can see all of time, the past, present and future. In that moment, at any moment, you can see time in all its infinite potential, one vast and all-encompassing flow and then shrunken and finite. It all depends on perspective.

The Time Master asks you to think about how you perceive time and everything it represents. Will you break free from your limited cause-and-effect thinking. Will you move beyond linear illusion, and be able to welcome the cyclic quality of time?

If you can look beyond the linear view of time and take back your power, let go of the past so you can step fully into your life. In this moment you are all-powerful. Anything is possible now.

Sometimes it appears time is ebbing away from us, there Is not enough. You fear that as time runs away from you your plans hopes and desires will also elude you. But this is a perception of your mind. If you are fully part of NOW you will be able to release thoughts, emotions and failed dreams from the past so you are better able to see and expect the future. 

It is in the NOW that the magic of time and your hopes and dreams reveal themselves. Relax and they will appear directly in front of you and nothing else. When you realize you have all the time in the world. You will never run out of it!

The Sorcerer

The Sorcerer symbolizes beliefs and ideas of division, struggle and being without. We feel the sorcerer casts a dark shadow over our lives, but in reality, the shadows are own. Those shadows are feelings of separation from loved one, colleagues, pets. Feelings of conflict and aggression to others in order to achieve our self-centred goals.

Our shadows may be narrow, broad, or generous in their focus. Either way, our busy mind loves to feed off the shadow energy and its negative feelings. The sorcerer, is asking you to look at these energies, examine how destructive they are. What are you feeling? Resentment, vengeance, lust, greed, bigotry, or hatred about or to whom or what. These feelings are unjustified and not your spiritual core which is pushed away without consideration.

The Sorcerer challenges you, confronts your dark thinking and beliefs. Now! Is a second chance! Start over. Be strong and be vigilant about the darkness you are beings asked to recognise, and then, to discard. 

Others are not to blame for what is inside of you, what you allow to be there. Take a moment to create a sense of peace and move in another direction and do not allow those negative thoughts and feelings to grow again. You are done with them and that way of living.

Queen of the Moon Oracle Card Wanning Crescent – Release.

The waning Crescent is the last phase of the moon, the shape of the moon is smaller and smaller until it is a thin narrow band. At the end the, the moon slips into darkness and prepares to return as a full moon.

As with many things in life, you need to let go of what does not work for you before something new can come into your life. This could be a relationship, a new job, a new way of looking at the world, a new way to enjoy life.

Without release, you cannot move forward, cannot experience new things. Release now!
