March is a peculiar month, with some days warm like spring, and other days cold like winter – the sun shines warm and the wind blows cold. The shades of winter begin to fade and the colors of spring begin to bloom. It’s too soon to put away the sweaters, and too soon to bring out the tanks and shorts. While the weather in March is so often confused, the energy that circles around us can be the same.
Oracle Cards are an excellent way to listen to your guides and your higher self, and sort through the confusion. We are bombarded by real life that we forget to take a minute to tune in. Oracle can help reassure. They can help renew and they can help remind you of your inner strength. Below are 4 Oracle cards from the Oracle of Shadows and Light by Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith. The backs are all the same, but by using your intuition choose one of the cards that calls most to you. There’s no magic in this, just simply trusting your gut. So take a deep breathe in and out, don’t second guess yourself, and choose. Which card speaks most to you?

CARD # 1- The Dried Flower Fairy – This fairy is all about collecting sweet memories, treasuring them, and keeping them from fading. She wants you to be reminded of happy times. No matter how far away the memories, they are always able to travel to you. Wrap yourself up in their sweetness, especially during the hard times, when you forget all of the good that has happened. When those sweet moments seem farthest away, that is when you most need them. Expect reminders of loved ones, loved ones on the other side, and past happiness that you once embraced. Allow yourself to reminisce about sweet moments, think about your firsts, or your childhood, or anything that brings a smile to your face. Don’t forget to create those little memories as well, go for a walk in the sunlight, watch the stars, eat a really delicious meal, take lots of photographs, kiss someone deeply, go cloud watching. Discover a perfect moment that you can remember and cherish always. You might pull out photograph books, old videos, or even visit a loved one’s grave site. This isn’t about feeling sad about the past, but embrace the past, people, and lessons, and know that because of all you’ve encountered you’ve become a stronger person.
Card #2 – SEA STORM – As you endeavor to create a prosperous life, you may encounter unexpected reversals that cause you to shift directions. This is a good thing, so there is nothing to fear. Perhaps an opportunity you sought went to someone else. Perhaps you have pursued something that you suddenly realize is not in your highest good. You might not be one hundred percent clear on where you need to go, but you are certain that things are not going as planned. Circumstances are not in your control right now. Wait it out. All will be well – even better, actually. Trust. There are conditions brewing in your life you have no control over. Do not fight them. Change is inevitable and is for the best, for the higher good. Even if this storm blows away the structures you think you have built your dreams on, all will turn out as it should. You will have a renewed clarity and strength to do something even better.
Do not fear the change, and do not try to stop the storm. Your life is shifting and changing… morphing into something brand new. Fear can only cause you unnecessary pain and use up vital energy that would be better put into focusing on the creative manifestation of your new reality.You are not a victim here, you are very much involved in the co-creation of your new reality. Hand in hand with Spirit, you will create a life of pure authentic beauty. You will have the resources to reach out and help others, so know that there is no need to struggle. The Universe will provide. Instead, wait out the storm, and stay calm amid the chaos.
Card #3 – Mend-a-Broken-Heart Fairy – Here she comes to gather up your heart’s sore pieces and place a sweet bandage on the place that is most wounded. And this one tender gesture does more to heal you than could a thousand years of therapy. It’s time for small kindnesses to be received, for you to know that the little gifts of friendship and sweetness are the ones that will assist you most at this time. Allow yourself to be treated gently, to be attended to with kindness, and to be hugged. Allow yourself to accept that this is a time when you need to take good care of yourself. You are healing, and on the mend, but do not undo her medicine by forcing yourself to hurry up and get over it!
You have been hurt, and this heart feels bruised to me. It may have been what is called a lovers’ quarrel or unrequited love, it may have been a breakup, and it may be that an adventure in love has turned harsh . . . but I am here to help you mend, and I will not let your broken heart bleed. I will wash (clear), heal (balance), and place the bandage over the wound (protect), and send you the healing that means deep, restful sleep and peace return to you. I want you to take it easy on the path of love for now . . . soon you will feel your vitality return. But for now, it’s a time of rest!
When you have heartache, it is important to treat yourself well: take time away from the flurry of shoulds you are so often confronted with. Why not take some time to snuggle on the couch with a favorite old movie, and have a sniffle. Have a long, comforting bath, and be sure to make a promise to yourself to let close people who are worthy of your love! It is not about being bitter or guarded, but you are a sensitive and tender sweet being, and some people are just . . . not! So, now is not the time for harshness. Soft blankets, sweet dreams, long baths, and a reduction of the harsh energy around you are best. Then the Mend-a-Broken-Heart Fairy can fly in to soothe you. . . . You will feel her presence, and she will lift the pain, until all that is left is sweet, gentle wisdom!
Card #4 – The Violet Angel – The message of this card is that you are on the verge of a new day, new beginnings. She waits for you to become aware of all of the beautiful things that are just waiting for you. When she appears it is a sign that changes you have been waiting for are just around the corner. The angel looks tired from her past hurts and worries, but this card reminds us to leave these in the past where they belong. Learn from your mistakes and the actions of others, but try not to carry them as burdens into the future. Start each day with a new, clean slate, stand tall in the face of adversity, and know that you are strong enough to carry on.
The worst is over and coming to an end, ready for a new dawn to break. It’s felt as though the tough times have been going on forever, but the wheel always turns, and now this cycle is coming to an end. Try to look forward to the future, even if it’s still hard to do at the moment, better things are on their way. There have been times when you’ve lost your spark and your physical body has been exhausted. It has been a long dark night of the soul but the worst is over and the best is on the horizon. It is a faint gathering of energy but it is on the way. Your energy will flow again. Your spirit will blossom.
