Oracle Card

Today’s oracle message comes from a deck called Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer. I like the fact that this deck includes quite a few animals that aren’t often included in animal decks, for example, the Meerkat, Kiwi, Platypus, and Pueo (Hawaiian Owl).

I pulled the
PANDA from the deck. Each card has a message at the bottom. For the Panda, it is: “Create a sacred space for yourself in your home and/or place of work.”

In the book that accompanies the deck, each card also has a list of Associations. For the Panda, these are: “Rarity; Vegetarianism; Polarity; Willpower; Solitude; Privacy; Sacred Space; Intuition; Perspective; Gentleness; Strength; Flexibility; Modesty; Economy.”

From what little I know about pandas, the message and Associations seem appropriate. Pandas are generally solitary animals that spend most of their days feeding. Their diet is almost all bamboo. Female pandas do not permit other females to violate their “space.”

These days it can be especially important to create a private spiritual sanctuary for yourself. We seem to be constantly connected to other people by computer, by telephone, and so forth. How can we hear our inner voice if someone else is always talking in our ear or sending messages to us to read on a screen?

For the sake of our emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual health and balance, we need to have a place where we
can contemplate, meditated, or just exist for a moment without any agenda or demands.

-----------------------
In addition to my 60 Tarot decks, I own a great many oracle decks. I love these decks, but don't use them as often as I would like. Every now and then, I am going to share a card from one of these oracle decks here on the blog. I hope people will enjoy seeing cards from various decks and will gain something from the interpretations of the cards!
