Tuesday's Oracle - Solar Plexus Chakra

Welcome to this week's Tuesday's Oracle! On Tuesdays (When I have the time) I draw an oracle card from one of my Oracle decks and share it with you. Always before I draw the card I pray for guidance and support from the God and Goddess, the Elements, the Angels, and the Fey. I also pray that while this guidance is generally for me, that it may also be something I can share with others, and that this message from the Divine will reach the hearts of others who may benefit from it. Namaste!______________________________________________ This week's oracle card is from the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. I drew the card "Solar Plexus Chakra", with artwork depicting the Archangel Michael, by Howard David Johnson. The inscription on the card reads, "It is safe for you to be powerful and take charge of your life in positive ways." ___________________________________________ __ The Solar Plexus Chakra relates to our personal power. The energy center located right below and behind the naval, The Solar Plexus Chakra is yellow, golden, and bright white - like a sun. If our body is a solar system, the Solar Plexus is the Sun and it's light gives energy and vitality to the rest of our chakras. When our Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced we have confidence in our decisions, and feel that we are in control of our lives because we recognize that we take responsibility for every aspect of our life. When the Solar Plexus in imbalanced, we feel that other people or events have control over us, and we have fears and insecurities and lack confidence in our ability to make wise, discriminating choices. ___________________________________________ Doreen Virtue's book, "Chakra Clearing" tells us this about the Solar Plexus; "The solar plexus chakra is affected by thoughts and feelings about; * Power: the fear of being, or desire to be, a powerful person; fear of authority figures; obsessions with power; concerns about people or nations that wield a lot of power; current or past experiences in which you felt overpowered by another person. * Control: fears of being controlled by others; fear of losing control; desires for control over yourself, situations, or other people; current or past experiences in which you felt controlled or out of control." _____________________________________________ This card's message is that you need to work on these issues of Power and Control, and the Archangel Michael can help you heal those issues and find your sense of empowerment again! Visualize your sacral chakra glowing bright yellow, gold, and white in your center and affirm; "I am in control. I have power and I use it wisely for the Highest Good in my life!" Repeat this affirmation and visualization frequently, especially if you feel fearful, overwhelmed, or out of control. Also, the guidebook that comes with the cards suggests this wonderful meditation and prayer for healing the Sacral Chakra with the Archangel Michael: _________________________________________ _____ "Recline on your back in a quiet location and focus on your solar plexus, which is the energy center behind your belly button. Say, either silently or aloud: 'Archangel Michael, I call upon you now. Please cut any cords of fear from my solar plexus to anyone whom I've given my power.' Then inhale and exhale deeply as Michael disentangles you from those whom you've feared were controlling you. Then say: 'Archangel Michael, please give me the courage to take complete responsibility for every aspect of my life.' " (~ Doreen Virtue) ________________________________________ Remember, your true power is found within you, and no one can control you without your permission!

Mommy Time Monday - 3 of Cups

Each week (If life permits!) I will draw a card from The Housewives Tarot and share it with you! So stop in, grab a cup of coffee, and see what the Housewives have to share with you!


I've been so busy lately, I've had no time for blogging. Or that's what I've been telling myself anyways. I know, I know.... excuses, excuses! I do apologize for my absence! Anyways, I'm here now, and I have a card for us this week!

Today I drew the Three of Cups. My first thought was, "OK, am NOT pregnant!" But then I remembered that there is more than one kind of fertility, and conception does not always come in the form of a fetus. This makes sense... I have been FULL of new ideas, inspirations, my mind and heart are just OVERFLOWING with this new energy. I think it's part of the season.... SPRING! Spring brings us more than a chance to do Spring Cleaning and plant a garden, but it gives us a renewal of spirit as well. With the sun in powerful fiery Aries, our activity levels will be increasing and inspirations and new ideas abound. So today's card really just accents and confirms this energy I've been feeling. And I know I'm not the only one! So many of my friends have felt this energy - some in the form of a spiritual awakening, some in the form of just plain being BUSY. For some, the change has been an upheaval of sorts, but whatever change has occurred will make way for something new and fresh!

The guidebook by Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum says; "3 of Cups; Creation, Change, Conception As two glasses toast, their contents spill into a third. What delicious cocktail will they create? The Three of Cups is a card of creation, the beginning of something new conceived by the mixing of two forces. It may be a wedding, a birth, or just a joyous occasion worth celebrating. Shaken or stirred, your life is in for a significant change."

So what in your life is being transformed, renewed, or created right now? When you found out you were pregnant you started taking prenatal vitamins to help the baby grow and develop. So what steps can you take now to promote the development and healthy growth of the changes within your life?

The classic meanings of this card also emphasize the partnership with others in our life. After all, many new goals and changes take a collaboration of some kind, and the Three of Cups celebrates the changes and creations that are similar to Pregnancy, Marriage, and Friendship. So as you think about what changes are being conceived in your life right now, think about your relationships and the impacts these have on your growth. Take time to celebrate the relationships that improve your life and help you grow! Also, if there are any relationships in your life that aren't worth celebrating (negative relationships that bring you down) then don't feel guilty about putting some distance in those relationships or cutting them out all together. Think of your friends and relationships like those prenatal vitamins.... if they help your growth and encourage healthy changes in your life, take them in large doses and celebrate them! If they bring you down... well that's the same as eating nothing but junk food while you're pregnant... it's not beneficial.

Here's an affirmation for you for the week; "I celebrate my joy and happiness, and I help create positive changes in my life!"
