WICCAN ORACLE CARD READING
FOR WEEK BEGINNING 10th December
Very warm wishes to one and all, and welcome to the Wiccan Oracle for this week. I’m really blown away by the lovely comments and support shown to my readings. They mean a lot to me, and I’m so glad that you feel the link to your own lives.
This week my own experience was pretty magical, for I for the first time in years found myself embracing Christmas. And now my home is Yule ready.
I have had some fun with your activities this week as well, requiring some of you to connect with your inner child. Go for it!
Enjoy this week’s oracle is here. Enjoy.
Energy – Third Eye Chakra
Evocation – insight, divination, vision
Greetings Sagittarius! Welcome back again, you had last week the very beautiful Queen of Elphame. Was your world more magical, did you find time to frolic, did you get back to nature? Now you have found it, don’t stop for the world is still out there for you to have fun in.
Sagittarius when you think of the crystal ball do you see a fortune teller? Who is foretelling of handsome and beautiful strangers? Think again, crystal balls are used to connect your 3rd eye, and enhance your psychic ability, and are fashioned from a variety of semi-precious gemstones, and they each have their own energy and purpose. They all serve the common purpose of divinatory vision. In modern day terms I would translate it as a new pair of glasses for your third eye, and intuitive energy will be strengthened.
You are now seeing things as they REALLY are. The veil of anything false or fake is removed now. Your dreams will be present with messages, from the past, to help you in the now. It is now a time for growth, change and movement, even if we are still under the influent of astrological influences, you are being assisted to proceed through such blockages.
Another time where in conjunction with your previous card, you will be feeling isolated and almost hermitized in this process, you can still combine the activities of the last reading and continue to commune with nature, never stop exploring your world. But you will soon be moving to a more sociable and connective time with other people in your life. Note you may be selective upon your return, for you new vision will also reveal who you want in your life, and who you don’t. So, with great vision, knowledge and planning comes decision making. Whatever decisions you make, they will if made honestly will be made wisely. You may also find yourself among new friends, resonating new aspects of yourself.
Do you fancy yourself a crystal ball or a scrying stone, (a hand-held palm stone) black obsidian is a lovely stone to work with? The true scrying is done by relaxing, gentle meditation and allowing yourself to see whilst you close your eyes. A 3rd eye chakra mediation will achieve this.
If you find this a little difficult to do, ask that you are guided in your dreams and day to day thoughts during your quieter moments.
Make some time each day just for you, (A good habit to get into anyway, along with your walks to get fresh air), to just be you and escape from whatever else is going on in your world. Five minutes before you get out of bed, and when you are done with your day, before you go to bed. Taking time out for you is so important to take stock through your day to see what you need to see and deal with issues that arise.
Peaks – Clarity, vision, guidance.
Troughs – Illusion, refusal to accept what you see.
Energy vibration – Astral
Theme –Veneer, mask
Capricorn hello to you, last week you drew the familiar, tell me did you connect with people, animals and feel their love and support for you? Or and I’m sure a few of you did, did you actually get a pet? Please if you did share here! The connections you made last week were important, and will continue to be so for you.
By drawing the cloak, you are now being given a gift that has practical, mental and magical properties. Ensure you use it well.
The cloak was the garment of choice in days gone by, our ancestors used to wear them to protect themselves against the elements. A cloak also serves as a disguise, their hoods veiling its wearer, until revealed by a closer look if you dare, or the wearer turning the hood down.
It can also serve to give its wearer a sense of purpose, appropriate to the task they are carrying out. Worn also in mystical, religious and secret ceremonies by Freemasons, modern day witches and wizards, druids, and fans of the supernatural. Harry Potter uses his cloak of invisibility, gifted by Sirius Black, to help him on plenty of occasions to move unseen, in order to carry out his heroics.
Whilst that is very interesting what does it mean to you? If you have plans or any ideas you are advised to keep them a secret for now. Think very carefully, are you really ready to make your announcement? Or do you have to tweak your ideas a little more? Are you rushing a project? Is everyone involved on the same page. Probably not. So, hide under your cloak, be enigmatic.
By holding back, this will be a time to find out more information about them, and their intentions.
You are dear soul, the traveller on a journey, on which you are guided and steered towards your destination, protected by your cloak, listening, watching and waiting for your time to drop down your hood, and speak.
Does it involve a candle? Only if you want it too!
But it does involve you making time for yourself, as all these activities do. Call it your, ‘Me time’.
What do you have to do?
Think like the afore mentioned Mr Potter. You have been given a cloak. What kind of cloak is it? Close your eyes, take in its colour, material, and texture.
What is its purpose?
Think about the situation it relates to, the people concerned therein. Information will come to light that will serve you well.
Then imagine, just imagine, the sense of achievement and feeling of accomplishment you will feel when you take your hood down, and say, ‘I have something to tell you’.
Good luck, enjoy, this is your time
Peaks – Timing and wisdom
Troughs – Patience, patience.
BOOK OF SHADOWS
Energy Vibration – Crown Chakra
Theme – Knowledge, learning, acknowledgement
Aquarius hello there! How was last week with the cone of power? Which element or aspect of your life did you visit and resolve? Remember if you ever need to visit a problem, visualise the cones of power and use the right one for the situation in hand.
This week you draw the book of shadows this is a very important and private book, that a worker of wiccan or witchcraft will keep. It can be any book, that belongs to a witch will keep through their lifetime, and beyond. Think of it as a diary of magical thoughts, and wonderings.
This could also be called the book of your life, as a whole, what spells are inside you, that you can help manifest into your outer self?
Don’t look at past experiences with regret. What did you learn? What did you change as a as a result? What didn’t you change but still can?
If you are confused about a situation and cannot see a way out, look into yourself, for you have your own answers.
Guess what it is going to be?
Yes, go out and buy a blank journal, treat yourself, and a new pen reserved for writing in it. Write in it, your thoughts, reflections and if you do practise spell work, I am sure you already have a book of shadows already. I would also write in it your activities, and your thoughts and feelings on as you work your way through them. Enjoy.
Peaks – Knowledge, practise
Troughs – Being honest with yourself
Energy Vibration – Soul
Theme – Responsibility, Consequences, Karma, Destiny, Inevitability, self-reflection
Pisces, well hello? Did you bathe well in the holy water, and are you refreshed and renewed? I hope you found the ebb and flow and new energy. What can we say about this week’s card? Nemesis.
It is a modern word for enemy, arch enemy, the worst thing we dread. But in Wicca fear not it’s much gentler in its message, for in fact Nemesis the Greek goddess representing destiny, karmic retribution. She may also be likened to the energy of water, or a mirror for she is a reflective goddess, asking us to look back at ourselves, our actions, and the part we play in our lives, and the lives of others in all situations, social, career and personal. So, you are in fact continuing the theme of water energy in your life.
She stands with a bowl in her right hand and an apple in her left. She is an earthbound goddess, barefoot, simply dressed, wearing a humble crown of leaves. Nemesis offers you the bowl as an opportunity to literally come clean with yourself, true deep reflective honesty, to cleanse yourself by admitting things that are hard to accept. She then offers you an apple, this is wisdom, what your decisions could or should be to correct the results of such actions, words and thoughts, and how to get back on the right path.
But you are being warned, that if you are harbouring negative thoughts or actions against someone or about a situation, you should reconsider as you could find Nemesis having a little word in your ear sometime in the future.
She offers you protection from others who are emitting such energy towards you at this time, so you are cleansed from the consequences of their actions, and given the wisdom to make the right decision on how to handle it. It could also be a time when you are seeing karma dealt to someone who has caused you deliberate or thoughtless harm in your life.
Very simple this week for you.
The pink light meditation
Get comfy, quiet and cosy. Light (yes, it’s candle time) a pink candle, if you have a rose quartz crystal and black obsidian crystal use these, one in each hand, if not you could treat yourself to a tumble stone of these semi-precious gems.
Sit or lay down, and gently think of the situations that left you feeling negatively.
N.B don’t feel the need to rake over every dispute you’ve had, just key moments or the current situation that has you feeling all the negatives that go with it/them.
Say, ‘I acknowledge the part I played in this situation, and any hurt I may have caused, I also forgive those who hurt me too and ask that all those involved can move on, free of negative association or consequence from this time’. Say your thanks.
Don’t beat yourself up, do this with kindness to yourself and others x
Peaks – Release and movement, the truth can be faced now.
Troughs – Tough lessons may be faced.
Hopes and dreams
Chakra – Throat
Theme – Hopes dreams, honesty
Representing masculine energy, or attributes we traditionally associate with the masculine. Ike the wand it is a direct, focussed force.
Aries people Hello!! Are you ready for a work out of your life? Not a physical one, don’t worry, we’re not wearing lycra and going to the gym. It’s a work out of the mind, body and soul. Which you are being helped with by the Sword.
I’m an air sign, therefore a sword sign in tarot, and really get what message you are being given here. The sword is tarot’s mystical knife, so imagine you’ve been given the armour, (support in your endeavours), and the mighty sword to cut through your surroundings.
Imagine the knightess, or handsome prince making his way to the castle, cutting through the forest of thorns, or the sharp-witted Queen of swords, who can silence enemies, end arguments and slice a lie with her tongue. This is you right now. Slick, quick witted, and wasting no time.
Not everyone will appreciate your honesty, and laser beam ability to spot and deal with lesser mortals. So be gentle, and kind with your words, maybe throw in a little patience too.
Whilst I do not profess to be skilled with reading Rider Waite tarot, I know the presence of the knight of swords, can mean a messenger arriving with short, sharp and to the point news. The fact you are receiving the sword means you are this knight, and that carries great responsibility.
I’ve pondered and wondered what you can do this week, and this is what I came up with.
The first bit requires some truth and honesty with yourself. So, don’t rush it, and don’t be afraid.
What do you want to do, with your life? Are you where you should be? Doing what you want to be doing? With the people you want to be with?
How does it make you feel? The issues that scare you and may be blockages in achieving your dreams can be scary, but you now have your sword, you can find a way to cut your way through with a sense of purpose. Imagine yourself living that dream or hope filled scenario.
If you find this dream is but that and not realistic, your gut will tell you and you can use the sword to cut it out of your life plan. You will not feel its pain, for this blade is swift and quick. And you can focus on what you need to doing.
Energy vibration – Ray of creation
Theme – Sexuality, wisdom
Ding Dong Taureans, did you ring the changes? Talk to some folks? I hope your week was productive and reflective. So, this week you have the snake, which follows so nicely from the bell, why? Because you created movement you now have the chance to let your imagination and artistic flair loose this week Taurus, (apt if you are putting your decorations up), creativity is around you now. This is an energy linked to all areas of your life.
For example, when it comes to resolving problems and issues, you will more than one, and possibly an interesting solution. In dire situations where you feel all is lost, a resurgence with fresh energy is about you. You will rise up ready to deal with anything that comes your way.
Be prepared for your love life to get a little more passionate, for yes ye olde nod to ‘the garden of Eden’, arrives with sexual intimacy being starred. You will find yourself generally more in touch with those you hold dear, and find yourself hugging and wanting to be near them.
Embrace this sense of vibrant vitality, apply it to your whole life, for the serpent is also very knowing, and very sharp minded.
This is a lovely thing to do, I remember in one reading I did, the guidance was, ‘Live, Laugh, Love’. This is your conscious activity this week. Don’t hold back, spontaneity is yours, seize the pleasure in the moment. Do something different, even if you feel you’ve no talent in that area, who cares, just do it.
Peaks – High energy to be used with wisdom.
Troughs – You may be nervous expressing yourself in any creative way.
Perception, seeing with new eyes.
Energy vibration – Third eye chakra
Theme – Perception, reflection, clarity
Welcome back Gemini, nice to see you, last week you had the crystal ball card,
The next phase is reflecting this new rejuvenated you to the world. This version of yourself is natural honest and pure. You will also find that you are able to connect with your deeper self via all of your senses and calling upon your spirit guides.
Mirrors are found in nature, in water, in ice, and of course from sand transformed into the loveliest reflective surface that we adorn our homes with to create a fresh self portrait every time we gaze into it. The instant selfie, and most honest and accurate one at any time.
This is how the world sees you.
is a time lovely Gemini when truth and honesty will be reflected back to you, and your true self, can if you choose be shown to the world. You will be shining, and your senses and chakras will be at their fullest potential.
If something feels off, trust your gut, it probably is.
Take time to consider, reflect, and think about situations. Be honest with yourself about situations in your life, and others, and be kind too.
Gemini what can you do this week? This week it’s a bit of a mean one on my part, but I really think it’s worth doing.
In your most natural form, (make-up free), stand before a mirror, do not rush this. Have a really good look at yourself. Now you can look at your face, but if you are able your real naked self.
Don’t critique yourself. This is not about pinching an inch or two, or imagining yourself with a face life. It’s about loving yourself.
What is your favourite feature? Do you need to adorn this lovely body and face with make up and clothes that do not suit your true personality? Is it time to reconsider the outward image you convey?
I know this is not a comfortable one for everyone to do, but we wash and bathe every day, so use that time to have a 5-minute chat to yourself in the mirror.
Peaks – Your gut is right.
Troughs – Be honest with others.
Energy vibration – Root chakra
Theme – Growth, fertility, prosperity, confidence
Cancerians welcome all! last week you drew the six rayed star and it was all about embracing and balancing masculine and feminine energies. Did it go well for you? This week is about nature, and the Green man who guards it. It is lovely card, for me the epitome of nature, I have a wall ornament in my garden, folklore says promotes growth, and fertility. I like to think he helps my planting projects succeed.
The Green Man stands for, facing fears, courage in self-expression. He also represents an opportunity to look at money earning potential and growth in financial areas.
Relationships – all relationships are starred at this time.
Where there is conflict either socially, romantic, professional or socially you are being told this is a good time for communication, and respect. This is a time of union, reunion, and growth in relationships. There may be decisions to make as to which way you need to go but however you decide it is for the best and will result in growth for you.
Or for all genders including non binary readers –
Your strong energy may be called upon, to act as a guardian, and protect those around you. You may also find yourself the centre of a networking situation, socially or professionally.
It is suggested you show respect and honour to the feminine to develop deeper, more harmonious connections in relationships. You may also be focussing on your family and regain your connections with them. If you have the intention you will understand your world and the people in it much more deeply, reaping great results and movement.
If you identify as a woman reading this –
Be bold, have courage, assertiveness is called for. By going forward with conviction, firmly believing in your actions, you will achieve results. If you are looking at relationships in your life, now is a time to take action, not wait for things to happen, go out and claim what you need.
This is a brilliant activity, and somewhat mocked by the cynical, which we are not. Get out and about, explore nature a hug a tree. Take some quiet time, feel the air, have some fun. If you can listen to the noises the trees make. Give thanks for nature.
Peaks – Opportunity
Troughs – Self-respect and respect for others
Energy vibration – Astral
Theme – Alliance, support, friends
Dear Leo welcome, last week you drew the mirror, a time of reflection, rejuvenation and being yourself. I really hope it went well for you. For the 2nd time the familiar has made an appearance and it’s your turn. How are your connections with creatures and your fellow humans?
Any creature from the animal kingdom that is mutually attracted to us. A powerful friend to have around, a guide, and guardian. Emitting their own vibrant magical energy, they promote healing. I have two adorable cats who are very, very magical and I cannot imagine a home without them.
You may already have creatures in your life that you are particularly connected to, enjoy that relationship. It maybe you find that he or she is fussing round you more, urging you to rest and relax, talk to it.
If you don’t have or don’t want an animal in your life don’t worry. There are humans you can relate to, and get support from. In keeping with the theme of love, happiness and healing, now in reaching out to the world, and looking at your current friendships and support network.
If you feel like you don’t have a network of friends. Is it time to let people know you are, let people get to know you? If you have one already, take a look at it, resolve any conflict in it with the help of your familiar.
Your familiar will be with you as you encounter the world now, you have a spirit animal, so know it is with you, with the power to protect and guide.
Maybe you are thinking of getting an animal companion in the coming weeks, if so, you will be drawn to one particular, and feel as if it is actually choosing you.
To sum up, reach out, accept friendship, love support.
This week, you have a meditation. It’s a beautiful one to do.
You need, a quiet comfy space, not to be disturbed for about 20 minutes.
Get comfy, imagine you are walking
Peak – Companionship, support
Trough – Finding out who your friends are and admitting you need support.
QUEEN OF ELPHAME
Fairy tale enchantment
Energy Vibration ~ The Underworld
Theme ~ Magic and Beauty
Beautiful grounded Virgo hello, well last week you drew The Owl, what did it say to you, what did you learn, how do you feel? It seems that the Queen Elphame is moving through the signs at the moment, and I have wondered at the significance of this, it is especially important for those born on the cusp, and may mean the lesson needs to continue.
The Queen of Elphame lived in Thier-na-Oge, the land of eternal youth, deep in a forest so get thee back into the woods again dear Virgo, it seems nature is really calling to you.
Work that new swagger, feel that connection with the ground. Feeling much surer footed and marching to your own beat. If you have found relaxing and mediation difficult lately, please know it will flow more easily now your spirit could feel freer. There is a sense of being able to breathe clearly.
How beautiful and magical is your world right now, open your eyes, notice the beauty of nature in your surroundings and others people. Look at the wonder in the faces of people you meet, and you will find they will respond to your glow with a lovely warm smile. Don’t be surprised if you make new friends.
On a slightly down side, it could also be that by drawing this card you may be thinking more one dimensionally, and may need to rethink your deeper feelings on what you consider to be attractive. Release any ego or negative thoughts about yourself and others, and acknowledge too that you are beautiful inside and out.
I am getting into the swing of it now with these activities and think this week you need something exciting, and a bit silly. It still has a purpose and is very rewarding but is very enjoyable. Go and find a beautiful Christmas display, it could be in your town centre, or your own, be among people there, and join in a social event. Carolling? Or ice-skating, and just seeing children queuing up to see Father Christmas. Our town has a fayre each year which is so lovely.
Peaks – Magic is touching you
Troughs – Look within yourself to see your true beauty, not outer.
Vibration -: Astral
Theme-: enchantment, illusion, fantasy.
Spells are intentions. Simply words, prayers, wishes or incantations, spoken written, eaten, sung, or danced with energy. The potential of such spell work intention requires pure, true energy, without ill thought or bad intention, focus and concentration. Our words in everyday life carry as much responsibility, for as the travel to recipients the consequences of them has a cause and affect type of action.
Enchantment and magic are in the air – you have an aura about you, and air of magic and charm. This time is good for you especially if you have been wishing, or hoping for something to happen in your life. I also liken the spell card to that of a timing, or synchronicity. The time is now when a little extra luck and things could just click, and work out for you.
If you are feeling frustrated or stuck, then at this time, you feel a movement, or gentle jolt of action that suggests at last there is a shift.
You may also ask yourself, is it time to consider that you may be looking or wishing for something unrealistically and need to gently acknowledge is no longer realistic to do so. To help you decide just think about your goals and ask if they are still realistic at all or at a certain level.
Those that are realistic could now be potentially achievable, those that aren’t will not manifest but you will be able to deal with them, knowing other dreams could come true. A truth could also find itself being revealed to you, without much effort from yourself.
Once you have decided what dream you are going to weave positivity into at this time, do so by visualizing it, look at where your planning and dreaming are at the moment.
Think really positively about it, is it a job, progression in a love match? When Ifs and BUTs get in your way, ask that this little bit of magic or luck around you guides you in achieving your goals.
Energy Vibration – Love – Heart Chakra
Theme -Universal love happiness and health
Libra, libra did you feel the love? I over all had a fabulous week with those I connected with.
So, this week you on its second outing too, we have ‘The Spell’, woven words to aid you in your activities and connections.
Spells are intentions with power and focus. The potential of such intention requires pure energy, with no ill thoughts or intentions, just pure innocent focus and concentration.
Our words or silence in everyday life carry great responsibility, for as they reach their recipients the consequences carries weight and meaning.
You have a dreamlike aura about you, magic and charm. If you have a wish or dream, this is a time to focus and manifest it. For you have magical aides around you. The laws of attractions will be strong.
If you are feeling frustrated or stuck, then at this time, you feel a movement, or gentle jolt of action that suggests at last there is a shift.
This is also a reality check so truths may be faced about people and situations in your life, but with this card it will be gentle, and not as painful as perhaps any rejection you may have felt last week. A truth could also find itself being revealed to you, without much effort from yourself.
As I like this activity, I will let it remain with our dear Queen, Titania.
Find a nice place, cosy and comfy, seat be warm, relax.
Decided what dream you are going to weave positivity into at this time, do so by visualizing it.
Look at your plans and dreams. Think really positively about it, love, work, study? IFs and BUTs get in your way, ask that this little bit of magic or luck around you guides you in achieving your goals.
SIX RAYED STAR
Energy vibration – The heart
Theme – Unification, union, balance
Hello mysterious Scorpio, how was last week for you? Did the wizard give you clarity and assistance with your energy levels last week? This week you have drawn the six-rayed star (appropriate for Christmas), another card indicating the need for balance of feminine and masculine energies, ying and yang and their home is in the heart.
Scorpio now it’s time to address your work/life balance. Take time again to reflect on the masculine and feminine sides of your personality. For the masculine side of you think about what testosterone does for or too you, address your fight or flight responses, are you quick to fly of the handle, have you over reacted to situations.
Or have you found yourself wanting to scurry away and hide from drama, especially if it’s not yours and you don’t want in, this is the excess of the gentler side of your nature the feminine. The male side is about action, courage and physical strength.
The gentler female side, is about communication, thought, and intuition.
It is time when you will be aware of your place in your world, and the people in your world. Ask yourself what aspects of it you are happy or unhappy with, what part do you play? How are you reacting to other behaviours towards you?
Another activity that is all about the self, you, and making time for you, we should all do this anyway, for if we don’t heal us, or take time out for us, how can we be balanced enough to deal with – them, and be there for them, those people in our lives.
Crystals to use in this time out are an emerald or green coloured stone, or a ruby (these can be costly I know but any jewellery containing them will serve just as well). Lay down, breath slowly, and draw your attention to your heart, breath in love and breath out fear and any other negative feelings.
Peaks – Balance the feminine with the masculine
Troughs – Seeking such balance with others can be an interesting challenge.
