I decided to turn to the Isis & Making Magick Oracles for this message. Asking what most of you need to know at this time. The First thing I noticed was the connection between “Ra” and the “Sun”. With the Isis Oracle I pulled, “Initiation- Spiritual Testing of Ra and the Lady Isis”. With Making Magick, I pulled the “Sun”. Ra is known as the God of the Sun. With these two we have an immediate connection. The Sun card foretells that with the golden energy the sun can bring fame and fortune. Most won’t become famous, but what will come to you is GREAT achievement.. Either through a reward, an accolade or a contract. With an initiation, it is a transitory phase leading to a new beginning. We do have the New Moon in Virgo coming up on August 31st. It is not shown in the picture I took, but lifting the card the astrological sign of Virgo is underneath. I didn’t do that knowingly either. I wasn’t actually paying attention to that as I plan on conducting New Moon/ September Reading’s This week. 😀 That’s always how it goes for me. One connection leading to another. I digress!
There is this Goddess Lady Isis (You… whether Male or Female) staring in the direction of the Sun (The achievement), Ra’s energy surrounds you, leading you, directing you, willing the best results to come forth. You will feel as through your strength grows beyond all boundries. What is coming if meant for you, designed just for you… and no one else. This destiny of yours you’ve been working very hard towards, even if subconsciously. Physical plans, physical actions need to be made and taken. Fantasizing is over. Physical progress is required.
This card states, ” When you are being spiritually initiated into the mysteries of light, love and power, there are moments of deep challenge. They key is to find the light within the challenge – the learning, growth or wisdom that can be summoned to turn the challenge into an opportunity for healing. Whilst the scorching heat of Ra seeks to burn through any resistance, the Lady Isis with compassion and cleverness will protect you from burning and instead enable you to be nourished and grow from the Light of Ra. Let lsis help you pass the test of intense growth as you thrive with new life. For advanced aspirants on the path, initiation will occur at various stages. Sometimes your entire life will feel like an initiation, at other times specific areas will be flowing easily whilst others are deeply challenging. This Oracle comes as confirmation that you are not needlessly suffering If you can find the light within the struggles, tests or challenges that face you now, you will experience a breakthrough healing.
It is the almost unbearable solar fire of Ra that can cleanse the Soul of wounds and the love, compassion and intelligence of Isis that can temper the heat of Ra and stop it from burning and drying you out, or else you would be left with nothing but emptiness, anger, bitterness and despair in your heart! These are not meant to be the outcomes of life’s challenges! Rather than losing love and hope through the challenges of life, the Initiate understands all aspects of life are growth opportunities in various states of disguise, waiting to Be discovered.
As an Initiate, this Oracle urges you to honor life as a gift and treat any challenge or pressure as a way for you to grow into a brighter and purer light capable of great spiritual service on this planet. That spiritual .service includes growing an ability to be able to love freely and beyond limits, to love with courage and faith.
In fact initiation for you now, dear one, is an opening to new levels of power and peace, self-possession and love. There are such sweet fruits waiting for you at the top of the tree you are currently climbing. It may seem as though you are in barren land at times with little hope, nourishment or encouragement, yet your spiritual oasis is not far away! The Lady Isis and the Power of Ra together are helping you grow. Stay focused on the Lady and Her love for you and you shall pass through the desert of Initiation unharmed and deeply transformed.“
Some phrases came to me– Don’t stare at the sun too long, you’ll hurt your eyes. Also, When it comes to the Sun… it does bring Warmth, Light, and Happiness (especially to those that deal with emotional and mental challenges by Dark and Gloomy days), But just as the Sun can gift you with Joy, you can also be burned by the same sun. You have to be careful not to take even the smallest things for granted, to be very appreciative of what you have and what you can currently work with in order to move forward and through any obstacle.
Also, what clicked with me while reading the card’s meaning was, “Be Discovered”. Some of you will be discovered for your skills and talents come this Fall (Northern Hemisphere). You are beginning this new phase or project soon and it will become the jumping point to your ultimate future.
Have a Blessed Sunday!
