The Oracle of Aotearoa Speaks

“In the realm of taha tinana the body is a sacred temple
Whatever form it takes whether large, small, strong or gentle.

See the sanctity of life in beings of every kind
All is a sacred manifestation of divine mind

Take care your foundations do not crumble through neglect or greed,
Develop your connection to the Earth and know what you really need.

Practicing self-care and the wise use of energy
Honouring the Earth and the realm of physicality.”

– Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber

Weekly Oracle

Focus on the essentials

This is a week of groundedness and structure. Take care of the practicalities and be clear about what you want to accomplish. The power is concentrated and the timing is perfect for making further progress. Commitment and focus are essential and will help to keep your intention alive. Adopt a pragmatic approach and ensure you leave no stone unturned when it comes to taking care of ordinary and mundane matters.

You’ll need to assess what needs to be done and what is realistically possible to achieve considering the time and space that is available to you. This is a time to attend to the physical realm and to look after and make positive use of the resources you have available to you. Honour your physical wellbeing, body and your physical surroundings. Being in harmony with your physical self and its needs is important, enabling you to make much better use of your sensitivity. Stay attuned to the subtle movements on the ‘web of life’ and be alert to what is happening in your physical reality.

The North

To the patupaiarehe the north was a place of taha tinana – physicality. It was known to be the place of the earth spirits – those beings that are inter-connected with the land and plant kingdom. The north is very ‘solid’ and as such was connected to the foundations and daily activities of daily life.  It was understood that while we each have unlimited potential and infinite possibilities open to us, the physical dimension is where the manifestation of our potential takes place. Here we learn to make the best use of the limitations that are present on the physical plane.

Patupaiarehe o Te Tai Tokerau – Fairy of the North

This week’s oracle card from The Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© carries the powerful image of Patupaiarehe o te tai tokerau – Fairy of the North and links you into the magical element of earth and physicality. Work with this card as a magically potent talisman by carrying it with you, meditating on it or placing it on your desk or altar.

Care and attention

The week begins with a short burst of energy with the Sun conjunct the planet Mercury on Monday 22nd July. This puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making it a very busy time mentally.  When the Sun and Mercury come together in this way there can be lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and thoughts happening all at once.

The Sun enters the zodiacal sign of Leo on Tuesday 23rd July bringing a shift in energies. With Leo, there is a warmth to our actions and it’s time to shine a little more with a bit of passion and drama in what you do. Astrologically the Sun is at its strongest when in Leo and this is a powerful time to work magically with the power associated with the Sun. Conducting a morning ritual associated with the Sun is a very ancient practice used in various forms by shamans and holy people throughout the world.

The Eighth Ray Spiritual Transformation Ritual continues this ancient practice and takes it to a whole new level. When the Sun moves into Leo on Tuesday you can begin this practice and tap into the life-giving energies of the Sun.  For more information on how to conduct this ritual see pg 227 of the book Eighth Ray Magic – The Magic of the Goddess The Magic of Co-creation.
