Saturday Oracle – Teetering On The Rim

Sometimes you just know. This is now quite possibly our most popular pick in its regularity at least, and I wasn’t at all surprised by its appearance.

The Sacred Chalice turns up when you are about to hit either the top or the bottom of a cycle and brings with it either great celebration or alternatively great sadness or disappointment. As I’m writing this I honestly cannot get a sense of which it will be as you’re teetering on the rim and it could go either way.

Success or failure, for now, you have done all you can to influence the outcome and you must surrender to a power much higher than yours to determine what fate has in store, a bit like The Wheel of Fortune in tarot.

What I can tell you, and if you have been reading this week’s posts you will be as unsurprised by this pick as I am, is that when this Chalice appears, so too does the energy of imbalance…

If you win: celebrating will take the primary focus and other areas of life will be neglected as you indulge in the revelry of your success.

If you lose: drowning your sorrows will have exactly the same effect, as will wallowing in self pity.

Either way you will no doubt have failed to heed a few Principles in the run up to the make or break moment, most notably Principle 2: I AM Detached, as your mind races to predict impossible to pin down outcomes, stress will most surely have kicked in and mental and emotional exhaustion can often be a result of the increased anxiety… be aware that this will increase your risk of illness as your immune system depletes. If you are lucky enough to fall into the full Cup of Destiny then the happy hormones that follow will sort you right out, but if you are the unlucky one who falls off the golden rim and tips the Chalice up all over you, then I’m sending you straight from here to the Self-Full corner to put all your attention back onto your own health and personal care.

I wish I could give you an exact heads up on what the outcome might be but what I can tell you is this: when you let go, surrender and allow life to happen, you give it permission to surprise you…

And may it surprise you beautifully this week.

More next week.

The Guilty Party

Grail Oracle 3Grail Oracle Yellow

I can’t believe I pulled this exact combination just two weeks ago in The Ego’s Trap! Persistent energy shows an unresolved dynamic and so let’s delve a little deeper into this combo…

Once again Principle 3: I AM Human jockeys with the yellow energy of the solar plexus chakra in a bid to create fear or cheer. The Guilty Party forces us to look at our failures and fears, our inmate human fallibility with compassion and forgiveness, but often before we arrive at those 5th dimensional qualities of grace we have to explore lower vibrations like shame and guilt to name just a couple. These judgements we make about our mistakes are often confused with the truth of who we are and we begin to see ourselves as the action, for example: “I am a failure” rather than “I have failed.”

This week you are being asked to take a leap into a familiar feeling potential-for-failure type situation but this time you are being asked to replace your fearful and self-accusatory thoughts with positive affirmations in order to short circuit what must have at some point felt like a losing streak.

Remember that when you walk into a room, no matter how many times you’ve been through that very same door, this time, with a positive outlook you could attract the successful greeting that you have been hoping for. You alone have the power to determine your success or failure and it begins with self-belief.

I believe in you.

More next week… x
