God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
– Reinhold Niebuhr
Unicorn Guidance Thursday, 5 July
Ruling Archangel: Sachiel
Crystal of the day: Sodalite
Lunar phase: Waning Moon entered Aries 05:49 BST, ending a long VoC
Rune of the day: Inguz (sacrifice)
Archangel Sachiel‘s presence is strong today. His Key is the Wheel of Fortune and this is the central theme card for the day. Destiny is calling and fated events may occur. We may feel out of balance and unprepared if we are not harmony with our calling, because today we are called to expand way outside our comfort zone.
The 9 of Wands and the 4 of Wands is a sign that feeling a need to protect what we have achieved so far is one of main things that is holding us back from doing that thing… Whatever that thing might be to you. Chances are you are squirming in your seat as you read this because that ‘thing’ will be that familiar to you. You like to dream about it… fantasise… idolise others who are doing it… or be jealous of them. Your list of excuses for not doing that ‘thing’ is as long as your arm. You have gotten cunning in the ways that you self-sabotage, cleverly disguising it as getting on with chores around the house ‘that simply must get done’ before you give yourself permission to create.
Today, the temptation to go into self-pity mode about your chances of success is very real. If that is happening to you, please know this: The only failure lies in not trying. The 9 of Swords is a sign that anxiety could easily get the better of you today. Perhaps you had a sleepless night. It’s easy to get into a negative, downward spiral (5 of Cups) emotionally when we are sleep-deprived. Don’t resist that feeling.
Yep, you heard me right. What you resist persists. The darkness that you are now descending into is just the ticket. You are called to sacrifice momentary pleasure and wellbeing to gain a deeper understanding of this fear that keeps pulling you under. The Polarity card from the Oracle of the Unicorns echoes this advice. It’s only by accepting that darkness within us that we are able to transcend… to be redeemed and resurrected.
The hero’s journey mirrors that of the Solar King whose essence is captured by the Inguz rune. In the Wheel of the Year, there is a time when all of Nature goes to seed. We simply cannot bloom until the dark soil has broken us down and transformed us into what we are becoming. Sit with all the reluctance to get going, all the self-pity and your list of excuses. Sit with them until you are ready to call in divine grace. It won’t take long for you to get out of your own way and pick up whatever tool you are meant to use. Simply begin…Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. – Lao Tzu Click To Tweet
