Good day, soul friends! I hope your week was lovely and that the weekend brought you some much needed rest. I have been busy trying to get things in their place (physically and mentally). This year has brought many changes, but I feel the deepest ones have been within my soul.
Today's guidance comes from the Universal Mind Oracle deck by Michelle Black.

Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected Card 1:
Solar Eclipse / The Unseen - Wolves represent family and unity, but here the lone wolf becomes a symbol of freedom... reminding you that stepping fully into who you really are will bring you gifts of freedom and strength. In doing so, you may find it necessary to confront unresolved inner conflicts or aspects of the shadow self. It is important to consider how your presence and efforts contribute to the whole of the Universe. Pause.
Look within, but do not allow yourself to get caught up in your inner work; seek to balance your inner workings ritualistically so that you can integrate yourself to be fully present in your service and communication with others. It is also recommended to avoid travel plans if possible to focus on these matters. Keywords: Freedom, Inner Work, Shadow Self, Strength, Past Lives Crystals: Citrine, Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, Carnelian Essential Oils: Ginger, BlackPepper, Thyme, Bergamot Element: Fire
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Safe Passage - Sometimes the Universe presents us with a set of options, and the best way forward seems unclear. Other times, we know exactly which way we want to go, yet fear of the unknown paralyzes us with a sense of entrapment. The energy of this card is all about the many contexts which surround word “safe”. When we choose to “play it safe”, we miss out on opportunities to discover and grow. Trying out a new direction might feel uncomfortable at first, but can turn out to be just what you need in the end. Spending time in the forest is recommended as a natural way to revitalize your energetic body. Being near(or literally sitting on) the roots of trees can help to ground and center you at this time, and will activate Muladhara -the Root Chakra - to strengthen your spiritual and emotional foundation. Keywords: New Direction, Comfort Zone, Grounding, Confidence, Root Chakra Crystals: Amethyst, Moonstone Essential Oils: Cedarwood, Cypress, Patchouli, Vetiver Element: Earth
If you chose Card 3:
Sacred Space - “We are not born into the Earth, we are borne out of the Earth.” - Chris Gruden The Earth, our Home, is a Sacred Teacher. She shares Her wisdom and Her beauty. She connects us to Her, and we find ourselves becoming more connected through Her. Although Nature is the most effective sacred space for spiritual work, it is important to designate a sacred space in your home for spiritual, meditative, and magickal workings. This becomes a place where you can create daily rituals and routines. This card signals you commit to daily spiritual practice. Actions to consider: meditate on things you are grateful for, create a daily journal practice, return to creative projects that set your soul on fire, purge unnecessary material objects, refine your collection of spiritual tools or foster a more consistent working relationship with them. Keywords: Reorganizing, Decluttering, Candles, Gratitude, Ritual Work, Meditation Crystals: Tangerine Quartz, Lumerian Quartz, Celestite Essential Oils: Myrrh, Thyme, Sandalwood, Rose Element: Air
