Athena

Card of the day: ATHENA- Goddess of Wisdom

Brilliance. Reason. Independence. Be independent. Listen to the wisdom within yourself.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Athena, the daughter of Greek god Zeus and God first wife Metis, was born fully clothed and fully armor-clad, emerging from her father’s head. Such unusual circumstance of birth primed Athena for her devotion to wisdom and art. She managed to avoid the romantic intrigues of the gods and goddesses. Although she is associated with war, she used her reason over force to outwit her enemies. She is also an artisan.

Her primary physical attribute are her bright grey eyes which suggest clarity of purpose. Just as Athena was borne of Zeus’ head, so must we all hold wisdom in our brains. Athena encourages us to think for ourselves independently.

“It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.” — Anonymous, “The Bhagavad Gita”

Mercury retrograde 2019

Making the Most of Every Mercury Retrograde Moment by Blesilda C. De La Rosa

Note: In 2019, Mercury goes retrograde during March 5-28, July 7-31, and October 31-November 20.

Why don’t we make a list of what you CAN do during the periods when Mercury is retrograde? The way some experts put it, with all those lists of “don’ts” – don’t buy electronics, don’t sign contracts, don’t start any important ventures, et cetera – you would think you’d have to bury your head in the sand! But since life goes on, Mercury retrograde or not, what can you do to make the most of every Mercury retrograde moment?

You know, it’s easy enough to remember these RE – words:

1. Reconsider your plans.
Since Mercury rules transportation, communication, electronics, and contracts, then maybe you should schedule your agenda during this period. This may mean anything from re-scheduling canceled appointments to postponing the purchase of electronic equipment like phones or computers. Use this time to reboot and refresh your projects.

2. Relax, reflect, and receive.
It’s not healthy to be on forward motion all the time. The universe gives you these 3-week periods three times a year so you can slow down, meditate, and learn more about yourself. If the rest of the year finds you on the giving end in terms of the actions you take, then a Mercury retrograde period puts you on the receiving end, for a change. Download all that insight and reflection so you can be a better person.

3. Remove the trash.
Clear out clutter and physical trash – but more importantly, cut out toxic habits, relationships, and ingrained tendencies toward worry and anxiety.

4. Remember your lessons in love, work, or money from the past. Repeat the steps that worked successfully and gently bid adieu to schemes that didn’t. Mercury retrograde periods are notorious for being the setting for returning karmic connections. If you have done your homework and taken out the trash, then you won’t be blindsided by nostalgia.

Remember your past triumphs so that going forward, you are ready to level up in applying the beneficial lessons in your brilliant life!

Isis, the Great Mother Goddess

Card of the day: ISIS – Great Mother Goddess

Healing. Magic. Power. Your heart will be healed. Have faith.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Isis is worshiped in Egypt as the universal great mother goddess, her name translating as “she of the throne,” indicating sovereignty. Isis is so powerful that she alone knows the secret name of Ra, the sun god.

Perhaps you already know the story of how Isis and Osiris loved each other, and then how Osiris’ jealous brother Set murdered Osiris. Osiris was cut up by Set into 14 pieces and these were scattered all over the earth. Grief-stricken Isis searched for all of OsirĂ­s and brought him.back to life. In one last act of love, Isis and Osiris conceived the falcon-headed god Horus.

Isis brings healing power and gentle comfort to you today, especially if you are forlorn from the loss of the beloved. You can still create life out of loss, like Isis’ mystical, creative resurrection of Osiris. Have faith!

“These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” —
John 16:33 NKJV

Juno

Card of the day: JUNO – Optima Maximus

Protection. Motherhood. Marriage. You are watched over at all times.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Juno is considered the Optima Maximus, meaning “best and greatest” of the goddesses by the ancient Romans. Juno ruled over all aspects of Roman life with her consort, the god Jupiter.

She watches over women from birth to death. It’s no wonder Roman women called their souls “juno” in honor of this great mother-goddess. As the patroness of marriage, Juno restored harmony between couples. One of her temples, though, was used as a shelter for women who needed sanctuary from cruel husbands.

To this day, many consider the month of June, named after the goddess, as the most auspicious time to marry. The peacock is sacred to Juno because the many eyes in its feathers are like the goddess’ ever-open eyes as she protects women.

This group, I trust, is not just about the good, fortunate things that happen to us. Let’s face it: abuse and cruelty can be found in some marriages, and a majority of the victims are women. If you are the victim of physical, emotional, financial, or any type of abuse in what was once a loving relationship, please remember that nobody – as in nobody – deserves to be hurt in any way. You have options. Please get help.

As for those of us who are blessed enough to thrive in gentle, nurturing relationships – remember to be grateful and to extend your loving example to your spheres of influence. If you suspect a domestic violence situation, then please give the affected person the courage to break free and start anew. Do not turn a blind eye or Juno’s eyes can see you, too.

Kuan Yin

Card of the day: KUAN YIN – Mother of Mercy

Compassion. Healing. Serenity. Become a channel for compassion.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Kuan Yin is one of the most beloved deities in China, and she is said to personify “karuna,” the principle of boundless compassion and kindness. Considered to act as a guardian angel to humans, Kuan Yin is also known as the mother of mercy, mother of compassion and healing – and even for someone to say the name of the goddess brings protection and relief to those in need of her help.

Kuan Yin heals those who are sick in heart and body, paying special attention to mothers and children in distress, and even seafarers in storms. She has a temple on the mountain of Miao Feng Shan set upon a faraway island. As people pray to her, they shake rattles and other noisemakers to attract Kuan Yin’s notice.

Dear ones, the principle of “karuna,” that of boundless compassion and kindness, begins with how you treat yourself. What are the ways in which you can practice self-compassion and thus attain to the heights of mercy, like bodhisattva Kuan Yin does? Are you also extending your compassion to the people in your spheres of influence, knowing that love begets love?

I feel that this card appeared because somewhere in the fabric of your life, a fence needs mending or a soul (it could even be yours) needs tending. Be kind to yourself and others, and feel the lotus of love and compassion bloom brightly like a thousand suns within your bodymindspiritheart.

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.” —The Dalai Lama

Stargazer Bles

I’m putting myself out there. Let Divine Spirit and the Universe find me. So once more, with feeling:

Stargazer Bles is about empowerment and compassion.

Angel readings, oracle readings, crystal therapy, Reiki (all of which I offer) or any other healing modality are just self-reminders of our inherent capacity to balance ourselves and solve our “problems.”

Even so-called problems, as we know, could from another perspective also be avenues for bodymindheartspirit growth and enlightenment.

But wait, here’s the thing: we are already enlightened! Our Mission, then, is to awaken the rest of our human and sentient family towards luminous love, sustainability, and selfless compassion.

“Compassion is the radicalism of our time.” – His Holiness, The Dalai Lama

“We are the love of creation.” – Kuan Yin

So help me God.

Gwenhywfar of Wales

Card of the day: GWENHYWFAR- First Lady of Wales

Leadership. Wisdom. Water. You are a wise ruler of your realm.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, 2007)

Gwenhywfar is honored as the first lady of the Welsh islands and seas. A mermaid goddess, Gwenhywfar is known in Germany as Cunneware, meaning “female wisdom.” However, in medieval legends, she is also known as Guinevere, the unhappy queen of King Arthur.

Nevertheless, she is the symbol of power in Wales, so successive would-be kings were always attempting to abduct her. Actually, though, it is Gwenhywfar’s power which is the real source of influence within the kingdom, not some forced romantic union.

Gwenhywfar is saying to you today: You are a wise ruler of your realm. Your previous knowledge and life experiences have prepared you for this moment, this majesty, this self-mastery. You’ve got this, dear one, or if you don’t, then you’re certainly already on your way!

Special tip: How do you change an oracle-card message into a personal affirmation? For example, here the card says: “You are a wise ruler of your realm.” Just change the pronouns to first-person: “I am a wise ruler of MY realm.”
