SUNDAY ORACLE: Artemis (Guardian)

“You and your loved ones are safe and spiritually protected.”

 

Artemis is one of my favorite goddesses.  She is know to be a protector, especially of women and children.  Had I known about Artemis in my younger years, I may have been better prepared to handle the terrible things that happened.  Or maybe, some of those terrible things would not have occurred at all. I cannot redo the past, but I can attest to the help Artemis has given me in getting over that past and moving ahead without fear and guilt.

Artemis offers us spiritual protection as we walk in the path that we were destined for.  The bow and arrows that she was given as a child are made, not to harm but to send us the needed energy to focus on our life’s calling.  She wants us to know that we are certainly Divinely protected and have no reason to live in fear.

Fear is what causes us to feel unsafe.  When we feel unsafe, our focus wavers from our mission to that thing that we are afraid of.  When we feel those stirrings of insecurity, call on the goddess Artemis.  She will help you get back on track with confidence.  

If you have children or grandchildren, well, any little one that you love and are concerned with, call on Artemis.  She is especially adept at protecting and caring for children.  

Artemis is the twin sister of the powerful god Apollo.  She is a very tomboyish goddess who prefers to spend her time in the  forests and wild places.  She was gifted with her very special bow and arrows that serve to help her and those who call upon her to manifest their intentions.  

May the protection of Artemis surround and all those that you love!

Ixchel (Medicine Woman)

“You are a channel for Divine healing power.”

Many of us do not realize the power that we have or can exercise in our lives. We have the power to hurt and to heal, with words or deeds. It is up to each of us individually to choose which path to take. We also have access to the Divine power of healing, again, if we choose.

Ixchel is the Mayan moon goddess who, along with her husband the sun god, gave birth to all Mayan gods. Ixchel is evermindful of the very beginning of human life on the planet and offers her abundant healing power to those humans who wish to command it.

You can connect to this healing power and allow it to amplify the healing power that you already have within your spirit. Your spirit connected to the Divine Spirit can be a powerful force in your life and the lives of others.

This healing power can help you to heal in all areas of life: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. If there is a particular situation or relationship rift, physical ailment, or some emotional turmoil that you are going through, call on Ixchel (EE-shell), and channel her healing power to help you heal these things.

If you already are a healer, any type of healer, Ixchel can assist you there, also. She will impart her healing love to you and infuse the knowledge and power you already have with the Divine. Hold steady and do not lose faith in yourself and the power within you. You are a healer!

May Ixchel bless you with health and healing this week!

SUNDAY ORACLE: Rhiannon

Rhiannon (Sorceress)

“You are a magical person who can manifest your clear intentions into reality.”

The one thing that always happens when I think of the goddess Rhiannon is the song of the same name by Fleetwood Mac. Although most view the lyrics of the song to be about an elusive woman who seems just out of reach of your love, I believe that it is a tribute to this Welsh goddess. Rhiannon is a shape shifter who helps souls transition from life on Earth into the next realm. She can also help with the many transitions that occur in our lives while we are still here on Earth.

Rhiannon is a loving goddess queen that is said to be the inspiration and muse of poets, writers, and artists. She is the perfect oracle for this week that begins with a full moon. She will help you see the magic that is inside you and bring it to the surface. In this way, you can begin to see the manifestation of your hearts desire, the realization of your dreams.

Your dreams and goals are a part of your life’s mission. Fulfilling those dreams and goals directly affects the Earth and all life on it. When you begin to live your dreams, you are making a positive impact on the world around you physically and spiritually.

Begin this week, under the influence of the full moon, to devote yourself to meeting goals and taking steps toward fulfilling your life’s purpose. Call on Rhiannon and she will help you transition into the life of your dreams, filling you with magic and wonder.
May you be blessed with success this week and forevermore.

SUNDAY ORACLE: Oonagh

Oonagh Easy Does It

“There is no need to hurry or force things to happen. Everything is occurring in perfect timing.”

Whoa! Use this time to slow down and assess what is really going on around you. Remember, Universe has everything running along as smoothly as ever. There is no need to wear yourself out with busy work. Take a few moments to think about what is really important to you. What is it that makes your heart sing? A relationship or a cause? What ever that thing is, do that. Put your time and effort into the things you really love. This will guide you to your true life’s purpose.

No one on this planet has the exact same life purpose as you. Take care and nourish your loves and know that everything is working out according to plan. Those who follow their heart are the happiest and have the most peace of mind. This could be you!

This week call on the Celtic goddess, Oonagh. It is said that when the Gaels invaded what we know as Ireland, Oonagh and her clan, the Tuathas, transformed themselves into leprechauns. They were able to stay in Ireland and live peacefully without having to fight or flee. Oonagh can also help you to transform into what or where you need to be in order to fall in line with your life’s path.

Do not make any rash decisions this week. No sudden moves, even if you have it all worked out. Allow things to just happen for a few days. Slow, steady progress is the way to handle things now.

If you have been trying to start your own business or move into a new career, start slow. Don’t leave your old job this week, ease into your future and things will work out.
This is a time of transition in your life, just do not rush it, allow it to happen.

Many bright blessings this week!
