The Oracle of Aotearoa Speaks

“Use the fire of will to banish distress
Where resistance is found see an empowering process.

The essential and required is where strength is due
Greater effort and patience is yours to get through.

Escape and seek comfort and you’ll miss an essential feature
Sometimes pain and limitation is the greatest teacher

Exercise constraint and do what is to be done
Weaving true strength as life’s lessons are spun.”

– Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber

Weekly Oracle

Apply yourself to the challenges at hand

There are many factors to juggle on the stage of life this week and you will need to expend a great deal of effort to keep ‘all the balls in the air.’ While the situation may feel confining or restrictive, applying yourself to the challenges at hand is the best option. While current restrictions may feel uncomfortable or difficult to deal with they bring a dynamic tension that can have a positive outcome if harnessed and used wisely. Short term pain for long term gain is a good motto to remember as the forces of Ahi make their influence felt. Hard work will pay off and you will need to be persistent if you wish to move beyond limiting constraints in consciousness.

By meeting situations with good grace this week, you increase the possibility for personal development and increased inner strength. Avoid falling into mental scenarios of ‘the grass being greener on the other side’, or wishing you were someplace else doing something much better. The present moment holds everything you need at this time and by focusing the power of your attention on what is needed, matters will improve.

Your ‘inner fire’

The secret to working with constraint is to realise it is an opportunity to harness your will power and ‘inner fire’ and this in turn brings possibilities for increased inner strength and growth. Being present and containing the ‘inner fire’ rather than dissipating it with reactionary behaviours or attitudes enables you to direct this energy where it is needed.  This is a balancing act and one that can be developed through meeting the inevitable with a positive attitude.

Ahi – Fire

This week’s oracle card from The Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© carries the powerful symbol of Ahi – Fire and links you into creative tension and inner strength. 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.

Written in the Stars

Inner examination

The planet Saturn and the three outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto continue their retrograde movement this month inviting inner examination. This time can be quite challenging for many bringing up deeper aspects of the consciousness and revealing some harsh reality checks that for some can be difficult to face. Seen as a wake-up call, the planet Uranus brings changes that can be more personally liberating and freeing.

Hard-working Virgo

The Sun and the planets Venus and Mars all move into the hard-working, diligent zodiacal sign of Virgo this week. As Mars moves into Virgo on Monday 19th August, you may feel motivated to get things tidied up and sorted so that you can be more efficient and productive. By making improvements where they are necessary, you will find current projects will begin to hum along more smoothly and you’ll start to feel you are on the right track.

The planet Venus follows suit, moving into Virgo on Thursday 22nd August. This brings a more practical focus to your relationships as well as helping you see from a more critical or ‘sensible’ perspective what you are spending your time and money on.  At the end of the week the Sun shifts out of Leo and into Virgo on Saturday 24th August. Be practical, organised and attend to your physical wellbeing – all of which enable you to have manage matters more efficiently.
