Monthly Oracle Card Reveal

Perhaps it is a crystal energy or chakra energy that you need to work with this month. Much love and crystal blessings for the month ahead!
★ This Month’s Oracle Deck: “Angels and Ancestors Oracle” by Kyle Gray.
BONUS CARDS: “Crystal Guidance Oracle” created by me Jen Faeline.
P.S. Check back on the 30th/31st of every month for the newest oracle card readings for the upcoming month.
#1 (left) – DIRECTION GUARDIAN: Choose Your Path — Connect with your deepest desires, then choose the path that will make your heart and soul sing
The Direction Guardian card represents the angels of direction. These amazing angels are the ones who come to us when we are at a crossroads and don’t know which way to go – when we are unsure of what is right for us or of the bigger picture. They can help us know what is best for all involved.
The Direction Guardian card refers to the vision of the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel, who is said to have seen an angel with four different faces: one was a child (cherub), one was a bowl, one was a lion and one was an eagle. These four faces show that angels can appear and many guises and guide us in many different directions – but always for our highest good.
EXTENDED MESSAGE: Your path isn’t set in stone, and your angels and guides have no expectations for you. Nor should you have any for yourself. There are many directions you can take. None of them are wrong, as they all hold perfect opportunities to grow and to learn. But life is to be enjoyed and savored, so, if you know that there’s a decision to be made, and particularly if you are feeling indecisive, choose the path you know is going to make you light up. And choose with your heart.
★ BONUS CARD: RHODOCHROSITE: Release emotional trauma and forgive. — Who or what do you need to forgive? Forgiveness is one of the most important steps on the road to emotional healing. Forgiveness is not saying that what happened is ok. Forgiveness does not mean you have to allow that person back into your life. Forgiveness is your way of making peace with the pain and releasing it. It gives you freedom for the future instead of being emotionally bound to the past. Sometimes the issue is not with you forgiving someone else, but it is you need to forgive yourself. This is often the hardest thing to do. However, you do have it within you to do it. Forgiveness and emotional balance from the understanding and acknowledgment that sometimes things happen that are out of our control. Even though we were hurt, there is nothing we can do to fix the past. Instead, look for the lesson that the situation brings, then make the conscious effort to let go and find peace with what happened. That is when you will finally break free of the emotional blocks, allowing you to find the happiness and balance that you desire and deserve. (Heart chakra and Fire Element)
#2 (middle) – HUNTER: Track Down You Fears and Desires — Track down all of your fearful thoughts and feelings. When you find them, you will find your desires to.
The Hunter card is based on the Celtic god, Cernunnos. He is the stag god of the wild and represents both the hunted and the hunter. Similarly, the Hunter helps you connect with an energy that is both fearful and fearless. Your fears are the only things that are standing between you and what you desire at this time. So you have to come face-to-face with them, as the hunter does with wild animals, and go beyond them.
EXTENDED MESSAGE: Instead of being hunted down by your fears or other feelings that you have buried, becomes a hunter. You are being given confidence and strength at this time, so use your power to make a difference. You are not here to cower away or live in the shadows, you are here to realize your fullest potential, but this can only occur when you step up and do what needs to be done. When this card arises, there could be an opportunity to face an aspect of your past or bring closure to a situation that has been haunting you.
If you are a man or identify as male, this card represents your masculinity and an opportunity to know yourself more deeply.
If you are a woman or identify as female, this card represents your capacity to be strong and powerful and overcome limitations.
★ BONUS CARD: PREHNITE: Letting go. — For a while now you have been bottling up negative emotions. This is not good for you emotionally or physically. Ultimately it will only cause you more pain. Do not be afraid to acknowledge your feelings and express them. Give yourself permission to release the pain. Let go of the hurt, the anger, and the sadness. It has served its purpose and its time with you is over. Once you finally acknowledge and release these negative feelings, you will find that you feel free and that your heart is open to finding even more love and happiness than you had before. (Heart chakra and Earth Element)
#3 (right) – SHAOLIN MASTER: Be Graceful in Movement and Action — Slow and steady. Breathe and flow. Take a gentler approach.
The Shaolin Master calls forth the ninja within. Shaolin medicine is about learning to adapt to a situation and to tap into the energy running through your body and preserve it in order to release it at the right moment. It also teaches subtlety, because when you are too forceful, you use too much energy, and that may not be supportive of what you are working on.
The Shaolin Master, like a monk, has respect for all things. He is disciplined and guided by his art and will never use it to impress the foolish or to appear stronger than someone who is threatening him. You, too, or being invited to remain graceful in your movement, choices and actions.
EXTENDED MESSAGE: You are being guided to flow like water, blow like air and connect with your purest intentions. Don’t feel you need to rush ahead. A gentler approach will be more fruitful and rewarding. Move with subtlety and grace. Reach high, but also ask yourself how you can move with the flow of life rather than pushing against it. Do you have the capacity to refocus your gaze at this time? Can you slow down? Or take more time to soften and breathe as we move forward? All of this will be incredibly beneficial for what happens next.
★ BONUS CARD: RED TIGER’S EYE: Motivation and Multi-Tasking. — You have been taking on too much responsibility lately. You have taken multi-tasking to the extreme. Although there is a lot to be done, you need to realize that you do have limitations. Not everything has to be 100% perfect all of the time. You cannot have all work and no play. Make time for some leisure. Spend time with friends and family, or even take a little time out for yourself. “Me time” is important for recharging your internal batteries. Do not wait until everything is completely finished before you take a break. Find a stopping point and then go relax for a little bit. You will be amazed at how much better you feel and your motivation to get things completed will be renewed. (Root chakra and Fire Element)
