Angelic Guidance

Oracle of the Shapeshifters
A few days ago, I drew this card: The Golden Phoenix from the US edition of the Oracle of Shapeshifters (Beyond Words, 2013).  It's another of the cards which is different to the Oz edition, with a far smaller phoenix, and more of a close-up on a big-faced, big-eyed girl, rather than the somewhat waif-like figure on the Oz card.  Still, I like how her hair, lips and eyes echo the colours of the Phoenix.

Anyway, I was a little surprised by the title on this card: Something you thought finished bursts back into life.  Nothing sprang to mind straight away, so I decided to draw a Lenormand line of five to clarify, from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004).  I left in the extra cards, and what I drew was: Cross, Fish, Mice, Paths, Angel.

How I read this was that copious burdens will be reduced by angelically-guided choices.  And with that, the previous card made a lot more sense.  Although I was originally thinking of a spiritual card for the day, this covers that and a lot more.

Mystical Lenormand (just realised the scan is back to front - doh!)
Over the last week, my son has been having some quite nasty health issues.  One of them is something that has been a recurring issue, but which he "officially" doesn't have.  They did a test on him back in 2010 which didn't show the problem, though even the technician who carried out the test said the way they tested was faulty and gave a lot of false negatives!  Anyhow, since then we have had one other time when this happened, but it was sorted by giving him antibiotics.  Then, we decided not to chase a correct diagnosis and just get on with things.  However, being faced this week with doctors telling us "Oh, well he doesn't have a history of this condition," has been extremely annoying, as well as unhelpful.

What I see the cards telling me, is that as this condition has become an issue again, I need to see it through to a proper diagnosis this time.  Although it will be stressful in the short term, it will reduce problems in the longer term.  My DH has been saying we should just not worry about it, but a voice in me says that it's better to cope with the hassles now than have this happening over and over.  So, I shall take the advice and push for a proper diagnosis.


  1. I will be sending prayers for an accurate diagnosis and complete healing for your son.


    1. Thank you, Krysten, that is very kind, and much appreciated! I don't think there's such a thing as a complete healing for him - he is very compromised - but just not having daily pain would be a good thing :)

  2. I also would like to send positive energy and benevolent resolutions to you!

    I agree with you that it is better to resolve things than to wait and have things get more complicated. That is something I'm trying to remind myself of.

    Sending you much healing,

    1. Thanks a lot, MM, all good energy is welcome. Sending you some back, too, to trust in the angelic/faerie messages you've been getting :) Not sure if we will get resolution, but it's worth striving for...

      Healing hugs,
