THE METAPHYSICAL RAVENℒ️ by STARGAZER BLES

Background info: Lately I’ve been seeing quite a a few individual ravens in my walks around the neighborhood. What could this mean for me? Good thing I have at least two relevant oracle decks with which to get clarity on these “birdly” 🐦 visitations.

A comparative analysis of THE RAVEN power/archangel animal as pulled from a couple of different oracle decks: “Power Animal Oracle Cards” by Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D. (Hay House, 2005) & “Archangel Animal Oracle Cards” by Diana Cooper (Hay House, 2019)

In Farmers’ deck, as you can see in.the photo, the key word is “Magic,” with the key phrase,”Own your Power.” Oh dear, I realized I just capitalized Power… due to an inner prompting just now for me TO HONOR πŸŽ– the Divine Feminine.

Anyway, in the accompanying guide book, Farmer opens the Raven spiel with this: “Trying to keep yourself little by denying your power so you won’t be a threat to anyone merely keeps you in a false bubble of safety.” He then goes on to say, “You’re more powerful than you think you are, so it’s time to stop pretending.” He cites a couple of examples to signify that you’re just wasting your talents with parlor tricks like “manifesting” convenient parking spaces or knowing when a certain someone is going to call.

However, there is no need to preen about your phenomenal talents. According to Farmer, “Let (your powerful magical ✨ talents) serve you, but mainly be of service to others — whether human, animal, plant, or mineral.”

So stop doubting already. With the right mix of faith, focus, and intention, own your Spirit power, a force that can move mountains β›°. Use your gifts 🎁 to make this world 🌎 a better one for all sentient beings.

On the other hand, in Cooper’s deck, the Raven is the harbinger of change, urging you to be prepared for it. The Raven is associated with Archangel Azriel (the Angel of Birth & Death) and Archangel Bhokpi (in charge of the bird 🐦 kingdom).

In Cooper’s oracle lore, like us people, “animals , birds 🐦, insects, fish 🐟, and reptiles… originate from different stars 🌟, planets, and universes. Like us, they all have a soul purpose ✨ and a service mission.”

The Raven’s soul mission is to urge people and animals towards enlightenment. If you see a single one of these birds 🐦, like I’ve been seeing, then it is prompting you to “watch out for unexpected change, or it may be telling you to raise your consciousness before you draw something unwanted to you.”

So set pure intentions so that you attract good things ✨ into your life. You have the skills and talents πŸ‘ enabling you to overcome πŸ’ͺ obstacles in an adroit and even unconventional way. Although the Raven “warns” you of sudden change or transition into something πŸ€” unexpected and new, it also does reassure you that you have all the help and support you need for the transition ahead.

In effect, the Raven as a Power Animal is a call to action in terms of magic and owning your power, whereas the Archangel Raven prompts you to prepare for any unexpected change. While Cooper’s Archangel Animal deck may seem more “out there” with its channeled talk of Archangels, it’s still as easy to grasp as Farmer’s more “practical” take on the Raven based on ancient and indigenous peoples’ traditions worldwide 🌐.
