Weekly Oracle – To Everyone’s Benefit

I love the energy of this combination, it feels comforting and caring like the sensual pillow talk of committed lovers, where no subject is off limits and everyone feels safe enough to be heard and not judged… communication to everyone’s benefit.

When Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted shows up, it wants to remind you of the need for balanced giving and receiving in all things. The heart’s capacity for flow is endless, the more it gives the more receptive it becomes so long as that giving is without any other agenda than love.

Love is a universal energy that cannot be contained, so an open heart allows that abundance to move freely between recipients.

When we pair this Principle to the royal blue throat chakra, we corral this flow of love into its communication form allowing us to speak from a loving perspective and to listen with a loving perspective. 

When lovers communicate in the sanctity of relationship, they do so under the unwritten rule that that level of intimacy is private, sacred, and that whatever is said will remain safe in the heart of the other.

The week ahead is a time where heartfelt mutual conversation can take place, that allows intimacy to flow between two hearts, giving each an opportunity to express what has been locked beneath the surface for some time. This doesn’t have to occur between lovers, it can be between friends, family, colleagues, etc, the theme being: “I feel heard and in return I hear you.”

This, to everyone’s benefit.

Drop the agendas, just allow honesty to flow without pretension or fear of judgement. The heart already knows what the throat chakra wants to express and have mirrored back through the filter of your chosen partner in this dance.

Saturday Oracle – A Glance Back Towards Yesterday

Principle 4: I AM Truth is standing on the precipice of the vibrant orange sacral chakra this week asking for you to reclaim your integrity within a close relationship or following the end of one as you’re guided to take a glance back towards yesterday.

I wasn’t surprised by this combination as my vague knowledge of astrology is very aware that Venus is turning retrograde around now and being the planet of love, desire, passion, relationships, intimacy and connecting, all the things associated with the sacral chakra they in a highlighted position at present. The idea that the celestial love goddess appears in the sky to be travelling backwards doesn’t invite you to go backwards as such but instead to review and reflect with a view to heal. But that’s enough astrology, let’s get back to the Principle in question…

I AM Truth. What the heck does that mean?

Inside you, at a deep level you have access to your own truth. Some of us have buried it under blame, projection, deflection, ego, anger and a few other useless emotions and tactics that help us to avoid taking responsibility for where we are and how we got here.

Something valuable, I’d go as far as to say beautiful, has been lost because the truth was painful. Owning your truth even if it’s potentially going to be scorned upon by others is sign that your Grail and your self-esteem are intact. The opinions of others are just that, and though it may be true for them it doesn’t have to be so for you. Your actions have had consequences and you’ve cast aside the opportunity for unity, connection, intimacy, friendship, co-creation and commitment, even family because your pride had you lashing out to protect your reputation… underneath all the bluster you knew what was true but you chose to destroy something, someone. It may not be as dramatic as that… you’ll know when you glance back with compassion, for yourself if for nobody else.

This week’s energy flow has potential. I said at the beginning that this Principle is standing on a precipice, does that mean you can fix it? Retrograde Venus is hoping you will learn from it for sure but the other party has drawn a line and you have no way of crossing it now. A negative aspect of Principle 4 is that communication is all but blocked so attempting to rescue the remains of what’s been lost is damn near impossible. But this reading is about learning so that you can apply truth to all your dealings. Understanding how to open yourself up to emotional intimacy is about understanding that in vulnerability lies strength. The most magical relationship is the one in which there is no blame, where honesty is a given not a currency to be traded and where the more ammunition you give your loved one the more bullets they have to protect your love with instead of loading the gun and firing it at you.

Now then, since the new moon last week, we have entered a portal in which the end of a karmic cycle occurs. It remains open, like the precipice, until the full moon on the 12th March. I suggest you take a leap of faith, dive into the orange abyss and retrieve you… that way when the next potential love affair enters your orbit, all of you, your entire being will be ready to enter the arena and surrender to another human being who is ready to surrender to you.

Right I’m off to celebrate and eat cake with my lovely mum who is 80 years young today!

Saturday Oracle – Your Vibrational Match

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Orange

There seems to be a fair bit of relationship advice springing forth from the oracle of late and this week’s combination is definitely pointing to opening a dialog about intimacy.

At the beginning of new relationships there is usually some form of guarded behaviour as to our true feelings and we hold back on what we feel to be emotional intimacy for fear of being hurt, ridiculed or rejected. It’s an unfortunate truth that many new couples start out by pretending to be something other than they are particularly with each other. For some reason we believe ourselves to be so much less than we are and somehow our shadow side’s take over the rational mind and distort our perception of ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally.

When Principle 4: I AM Truth jumps out of the pack it challenges you to be you in all your “f**ked up glory” because you are absolutely unique down to the cellular level… why then would you try to be anything else? When you consider the fact that everybody is just as messed up as you are, and that they have a similarly distorted view of what they view as their shortcomings… turns out we are all intimidated by making a good impression… but here’s the good bit: New relationships mean that everyone involved is far too loved-up to care if you have flaws so it’s actually the perfect time to embrace you uniqueness.

The bright orange of the sacral chakra is a magnetic energy and is calling in your mate… Emotional intimacy isn’t just about getting naked and sharing yourself physically, it’s about taking down the walls that stand between your true nature and the one who, in this moment, is your vibrational match. If you are pretending to be someone else then your vibrational match is matching the lie that you are portraying…

Get real… love is real… and you deserve that.

If you are in an existing relationship and somewhere along the line it lost its sparkle, now is a great opportunity for self-examination as to where you aren’t being honest about who you are, the person you have become, what your needs are etc, again open up a dialog with a partner… this is so for all your intimates at this time: romantic partners, your family members, your closest friends and so on… remember its about letting down walls and revealing the imperfect yet perfect you that hides beyond.
