Today’s oracle reading comes from “Ask Your Guides” by Sonia Choquette. As always, every Monday I ask my Guides to pick a card (or two) with a message that they want to share with me and my readers.
Today they picked two cards for us. The primary card is Deceit/Guardian Angels and the 2nd card is Decisions/Higher Self.
From the book:
Card 1: Deceit/Guardian Angels –
“Your Guardian Angels are present, alerting you to the fact that all isn’t as it appears; something is off and you may be in danger. Pay close attention to what’s going on within you. You’ll soon notice that bad vibes are in the air. They signal that someone is potentially able to exploit or manipulate you in some way, so be on the alert, and trust your vibes if things don’t feel right. “It’s hard to believe,” you say. “That can’t be!” But your Guardian Angels remind you that treachery and deceit are subtle and difficult to see. After all, no one wants to believe that someone might hurt them.
Sometimes it’s a deliberate attempt to injure, but more often it’s an act of self-protection at your expense. It may show up in your co-worker’s failure to inform you that the project deadline has changed, or your mother withholding the fact that your father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, or even your own neglect to tell your mate that you’ve overspent this month and can’t pay the bills.
Deceit and manipulation need not be maliciously intended to occur or to be damaging. Often it’s just the result of thoughtlessness or fear. Your Guardian Angels urge you to trust your vibes completely when it comes to your suspicions of others. Also, equally scrutinize your own deceptions. Either case leads to dead ends and disappointing outcomes. As your Guardian Angels to protect you from the deceit of others and your own temptation to deceive. Have the courage and integrity to be honest. Your Guardian Angels’ message: “We will watch over you.””
Card 2: Decisions/Higher Self –
“You’re faced with many choices and aren’t sure what to do. Leave or stay in a job? Terminate or recommit to a relationship? Stop or continue a creative project? Go to work or stay at home with the kids? Life is an endless stream of choices, and doing what’s best is never a simple thing.
Fortunately, your Higher Self can help you resolve these difficult decisions, especially if you’re willing to let some of the balls you juggle drop to the wayside for now. The key to making the best choices is to simply follow your heart and attend only to what you care about right now. Focus on priorities that feed your spirit, and don’t become overwhelmed by the demands and expectations of others.
Ask your Higher Self to help you discern and trust in what requires your attention right now, and be willing to disappoint people. Your Higher Self assures you that what falls to the wayside isn’t important in the long run, despite the drama of the moment. The message for you is: “Don’t try to be all things to all people; it’s a waste of time, and you’ll surely fail.””
Personal meaning for me:
The Deceit card coming up for me is super interesting because I had an intuitive reading done by a friend last week and this concept of deception, someone trying to deceive me, etc. was a central theme in her reading. I have no idea who or what this is referring to. In the reading my friend did for me, she was speaking primarily of business dealings and I feel that this card is also speaking of business dealings. Especially when paired with the Decision card, because I am struggling with a decision about my business right now. Interestingly, the decision comes down between what I feel is the smartest thing business-wise and what I WANT to do. The card would have me making the decision based on what I WANT to do. But where is the deception coming in? I have no idea, unless I’m deceiving myself about something to do with this decision. It is actually very possible that I am deceiving myself and looking at the option that I say I want with rose colored glasses and not seeing it for what it really is. I’ll have to talk to my Guardian Angels about this and see if they can clue me in a little better.
How about you?? Do these cards bring anything up for you? Feel free to share if you want.
Light and Love, Shawn
