This Mermaid has been recuperating from two days of birthday preparation and celebration (the Carrot Cake was a hit too, thank goodness!). Now I am in a state of “Post-Party Shambala” – resting, relaxing and recuperating (and it feels fantastic!). Perhaps it’s the lime and mint water that adds to this refreshing state (that’s alot of “r’s”). [grin]. Anyways, now that I’m feeling energized, it’s time to spread my love around “Bloggy Land.”
So I picked up an interesting set of cards the other day – the “Goddess Guidance Oracle Card” deck by Doreen Virtue. It’s a very beautiful set of cards that allow people (men and women alike) to discover the healing power of various (world) goddesses (ah, the “sacred feminine”). As I sat on my sunny patio yesterday, I drew a few cards:
–Abundantia – “The Universe is pouring it’s abundance out to you. Be open to receiving.” This fair lady is the roman goddess of prosperity, wealth and abundance (time, support, generosity). [hmm…obvious meaning. I like this card].
–Aine (pronounced Awn-ya) – “Take a risk and put your heart’s true action to desire.” Aine is the Celtic Goddess and fairy queen who gave birth to incarnated fairies from her romances with mortal men. In Ireland, this goddess sought to help grow crops. She also oversees the well being of animals. [Put your good intentions forth and the Universe will do the rest].
–Sedna (pronounced Sed-nuh) – “You are supplied for today and all of your tomorrows.” Sedna is the Inuit and Alaskan goddess of the sea who provides sustenance for the body and soul. She is intimately connected to the ocean’s sea creatures (hmmm….sounds like someone I know!). [Think of balance – giving and receiving. Some of your projects may involve the ocean or sea….].
Wow. What an excellent “reading”. I must say that these cards are not only thought-provoking, but they are timeless and beautiful too. If you are an oracle-seeker like myself, you may find these cards an enchanting addition to your collection (and if you are new to divinination techniques – this would be a friendly deck to start with). Thanks Dr. Virtue!
Have a wonderful remainder of your weekend!
