enjoying your path, aware of the breeze on your cheeks, the
sway of your hips, the colors and textures surrounding
you, and the sound of birds nearby. Maybe it's the
sweet trill of the hummingbird, the chattering of
swallows, the calling of crows and ravens. You take a moment
to find your avian familiar, maybe hiding in the
trees or soaring over your head. Like an augur of the
past, you take the time to honor your sacred familiar,
and all of the messages being brought to you
Playing with The Winged Enchantment Oracle Deck, written
by Lesley Morrison with artwork by Lisa Hunt, and
published by U.S Games Systems, puts you in touch with our
feathered friends, taking one on a flight of fancy, a chance
to deeply connect with our soul's ability to soar
above and into the beyond. 39 oracle cards are
accompanied by a 48 page illustrated book, so whether you are
actually out in your garden and visited by a feathered
friend, or engaged in personal vision quest and use these
cards as a meditation tool, there is much to be found in
these extraordinary cards.
Today we have New Moon in
Taurus while Mercury is retrograde in Gemini. These
heavenly bodies are transiting my tenth house,
traditionally associated with career and life path. I consult
the cards to review my chosen profession, contemplate
my current private practice, and create a proactive
plan for upcoming business opportunities. After
shuffling the deck 9 times, I pull three cards: left hand,
from my heart, reflecting the past; right hand, using
my head, representing the future; and and both hands,
the hear and now, combining my head and heart to
reveal my soul's purpose.
The first card I pull is
29-Robin. A young girl who seems to be metamorphosizing into
a robin sits in a nest. Around her are the four
seasons - a wintry ground below, bright blossoming summer
cherries above, migrating birds and budding branches on
either side. She looks intently towards the heavens, a
snowflake like crystal in her hand. "The hibernation of your
talents and dreams has no place in my medicine... I am
your wake up call at sunrise...Something needs
tending... You are the caretaker of your own soul.You are
your own change." Powerful words and a powerful image,
full of determined hope and a call for
The next card is 36-Turkey. Deep in the woods a
shape-shifter takes a moment to go into trance, hands clasped,
melding with both the birds and the forest spirit itself.
"You are being asked to serve a purpose. You are being
guided to put something else first...Look around to see
who needs you...There is quiet dignity in servitude."
A profound affirmation as I deal with the mundane
aspects of creating a business plan, contemplating budgets
and domain names, to remember my original intention -
creating right livelihood by helping others.
The last card
I pull, letting my hands play with the deck, back
and forth until finally my fingers agree, is
23-Ostrich. This card reminds me of a fantastical masked ball,
a fusion of human and bird that blends into a
delightful and whimsical image that is both enchanting and
delightful. "I am Ostrich, one of the great connector birds...
Raise up your head and keep your eyes on the prize. I am
a quick runner and can show you how to quickly
spread your newfound wisdom...I have simply come to
ensure that you follow it through."
Robin, Turkey, and
Ostrich - not the totems I usually work with or would have
chosen, but I respect that they have come to me for a
reason, as new teachers and I humble myself before their
teachings. Renewal, Servitude, and Follow Through - a new
mantra for my daily meditations, my visualizations as I
continue to dream, imagine, and take action on my own
flights of fancy.
"If you want to fly, let go of
everything that weighs you down." - From the introduction.
