RELEASING ALLEGIANCES: It is time to hold onto yourself and let go of another. Even if just for a time. You have gained all that was meant to be from that connection. At least for now. You have given and you have received. The need to let go does not deny the value of what has been acquired, it is more that the time has come for greater productivity, creativity, abundance and consciousness in your life.
You have completed many cycles in the vibrational frequency of consciousness that you are now being asked to release. You have been in that vibrational frequency for some time now. You have earned the right to step out of that frequency, out of the habits, relationships and the possibilities that are limited to that outmoded frequency. It is now time to expand into higher frequencies of experience that will bring enhanced love, empowerment and peace into your life. You will take the wisdom of what you have learned with you into something new – new connections, new relationships, new life experiences – at a higher turn of the spiral of life. But first – you!
Trust that you can step into solitude for a time without being consumed by loneliness. It is time to reconnect with yourself. Perhaps you have had a period of outward orientation where your energy has been diverted away from the inner journey of self-discovery and creative self-expression and into the world of lists, schedules and demands. Trust that you may need to step back momen-tarily even from your healthy relationships and commitments, to refresh your spirit by reconnecting with your own nature in solitude. Perhaps you have been diving so deep into the creative waters that you have lost your bearings or your energetic connection to the earth, your own life and your needs in the here and now. Either way, you need to come back to the ground of your body.
This is a time of self-love, for paying attention to yourself for nurturing, holding and being with you. It doesn’t mean you can’t love another, it just means you need to turn your attention inwards for a time, for some quality time, with you. You will emerge renewed, refreshed and clearer about your journey and your relationships as a result of this.
This oracle is also confirmation that the work you have been doing on yourself is working for you! Your level of self-love is increasing as a result. Some connections in your life will mature along with you and your regard and affection will deepen and blossom. It will be revealed that other relationships are no longer relevant to your life journey. You will know which is which because you will feel it. You will feel it most clearly when you have some time to be with yourself, in reconnection.
This oracle comes with particular guidance. There is a situation that has recently arisen, or will arise soon, where you need to back yourself. Don’t be put upon or hoodwinked into backing down by the emotional reactions of others! Stand your ground and stay aligned with what you know to be true. No matter how wonderful something seems logically or on the surface, if it doesn’t feel right for you, it is not for you at this time. Perhaps that will change and it will be right for you later. Perhaps you will step away and realize, with relief, that you had a lucky escape from a situation that would have ended up unnecessarily costing you. Either way, backing yourself and not giving in to the opinion of another, no matter how highly you would have rated that opinion in the past, is important. It is highly likely that you are breaking with tradition, with a role model or belief system that you have outgrown. You must be there for yourself because you are doing well, you are on the right path, and you are growing. Well done.

AGAINST THE GRAIN: You want birds to be able to fly underwater. You want love to trump power. You want humanity to relate to each other as equals and to recognize the sacredness in you and in the world around you. You want to unleash the beauty that hides in even the ugliest of scenes or sentiments. You want to make possible what others say cannot be. You are a radical dreamer, a sacred rebel, and you bring the light of a more positive future to the world.
However, this can have its burdens. Deep within you may feel that you really don’t fit in with the rest of the world. Perhaps your sense of how things can be and how they really are, is so different to the smaller minds or more fearful hearts of many others that you are rarely received for all that you offer. This might make you feel frustrated, thwarted or lonely at times.
The universe so loves you for your unusual take on things, for the quirkiness in you that dares to honor that which is different and renders the impossible, possible. You must never, ever lose your unusual ways and become dry, serious, appropriate and conventional – not even for appearance’s sake – for you would lose your essence. You are here to show that life is about so much more than conventional success!
This oracle comes with a special message for you. You are someone who lives and breathes in the depths of creative waters. You need to lose yourself to the flow of music, nature, dreams, imagination and fantasy, through art and literature, meditation, dance and in sensual surrender to the sacred waters of the ocean, the river, the lake – or the bathtub!
You must go against the grain. It is just your way. You are not one of the followers but one of the agitators. However, yours is not a force of disrespectful chaos. You are a loving catalyst and by simply being yourself, you constantly remind people that there is always another way. This oracle comes with the particular guidance that you are meant to be exactly as you are. you are meant to be the black sheep, the rainbow sheep or even the wild wolf in the flock of sheep! The daring butterfly spirit calling to the caterpillars – that is you. The price you pay for the gift of individuality is that you must take care of it and guard it so that you are not dulled down and conditioned into playing at something you are not.
If this has happened, or is threatening to happen, this oracle brings you comfort. You will always dream of birds that fly underwater. You know that the true nature of your being can never be changed – at most, it could only be hidden for a time. Now is the time to accept who you are and allow your truths to be freely expressed. Don’t worry about the effects of going against the grain. When we are who we are in truth, we attract the support, protection and energy that we need to thrive. Your power comes from aligning your outward self with your inner truth, not with the general consensus. You will then find other dreamers, other wild butterflies and atypically colored sheep to join you in conjuring better visions for our world.

PANDORA’S GIFT: There is a mythic woman, much maligned throughout history, whose name means ‘all gifted.’ Pandora lives within us as our curious nature, yearning to conquer chaos, evil and darkness with the light of knowledge. She is the hopeful voice of our soul that asks the questions and, in doing so, triggers the process that brings the answers. Sometimes it is through uncomfortable learning that we find our treasure. Pandora reminds us that the process of learning can take us to places that seem like the end of our world and, yet, all is not lost. Even now, the light within you is stirring for new revelation, new life and new adventure.
Pandora is all-gifted and all-giving. Her presence invites you to forgo your belief in judgement. Now is the time to surrender the misplaced guilt that you may have brought, upon yourself or another, some terrible happening. It is time to let go of the shame-based belief in punishment. This is a belief that you deserve to be brought to task over any perceived imperfection or that your natural human journey somehow renders you inadequate. Pandora frees the soul from such torment. This is her gift. The human journey necessarily involves learning through experience. There is no shame in your learning process. Pandora’s presence is the sign of a new time – a time to swap the notion of inherent shame for the acceptance of inherent divinity. From this moment on, how unstoppable you shall become!
Sacred rebellion is happening within your soul as a powerful uprising towards liberation. You are breaking free from the weighty criticisms of the world, from the power games that bore you senseless and from the insanity of sacrilegious priorities in this world. Dare to disobey anything and everything that is not divine. Pandora is the leader of your soul revolution. She defies the vicious judgements of history and all that has been said about her. She shrugs off misery, despair and the weight of the world, to recognize that she is the bearer of the true and beautiful light of peace, comfort, hope and reassurance. With her oracle comes the realization that you too are a divinely defiant believer in hope who shall cast off the works of anyone who seeks to torment you.
As this shift takes place, you shall dare to look within your own being and find the light. You are being put on divine notice from the sacred feminine that there is a talent and ability within you that needs to be acknowledged. There is a worthy seed of something beautiful and necessary within you. If you choose to develop and express this seed, step by step it will become an extraordinary light in your life and in the world. So, poke your tongue out at the naysayers and turn your attention to the bright hope within. You were born to strut your soul stuff.
