Very excited about this week because I got a new oracle deck: Angelarium - The Oracle of Emanations.
This is the type of deck where you will want to sit with the card meanings and really feel into where you fall into it. Because we live in a vibrational Universe, we can only experience things that which are a vibrational match to us, so the card(s) you've chosen will apply to you in some way.
The beings that are represented on these cards are beings you can invite into your experience and work with them. I was blown away by the artwork on these cards, and I find the meanings written in the booklet to be so full of depth and mystery. The back of the cards are so stunning; they are adorned by a Smokey Quartz sphere, as well as some smaller tumbled pieces.
Hold your intention or question in mind, and then look to see if one or more cards draw your attention. Then, continue scrolling down to reveal the cards and read their meanings.
Before we get to the cards:

Did you miss the live, online workshop I did with Beatriz Reyna on Boundaries? The recording is now up!
Now, without further ado-
Reminder: This isn't one of those decks where the meanings are blunt & straight-forward (like Teal's frequency tarot haha). I invite you to feel into the messages and find where you fall within them!
Card #1 - Shelegiel: Angel of Snow
The bravery of happiness in the face of sadness. Happiness that stands against the stark cold and does not shiver. The winter is heralded by the fall of snow as Shelegiel dances, each step as unique as the snowflakes that frolic about this Angel.
The quiet reveler of winter, Shelegiel moves over the rime, a bright and joyous visage amidst a harrowing landscape. Its presence brings relief to those who seek escape from an overburdened world. Take refuge from what ails you. It is time to recover.
Signs: A snowflake, a seed, a pine tree
Card #2 - Chesed: Right Hand - Empathy
The fourth Emanation. The hand that embraces. The healing tears brought on by the forgiveness of sins. Each kindness repaid in kind.
Chesed's force pulls humanity together, allowing peace to exist between us. This is the power to look inside the hearts of those around us and see that we are truly alike. Our need for love and kindness is an essential part of our existence and transcends all other differences we might have.
The blue orb's embrace extends across all existence.
Chesed is at the very center of the pillar of mercy, defining its core characteristic and forming an extreme opposite to its female counterpart, Gevurah. The two arms of the Tree extend in opposite directions. Chesed pulls tight so that Gevurah cannot push away. This wrestling match cannot be won by either side, yet the struggle itself is meaningful because it is the struggle that defines our morality.
Focus: Kindness, charity, love
Card #3 - Da'at: Null - Emptiness
This Emanation is a conduit. It radiates no light for itself, holds no shape, and touches nothing. It is perfect and invisible. A space through which nothing--and everything--passes. In its arms, all ten of the Emanations dance, each of them shining a great light through its void.
This Emanation has no number, no color, no connection to the other Emanations. In that, it is unique. Its solitary nature sets it apart from the other Emanations in such a significant way that Da'at is sometimes considered to not exist at all. To give a name to the emptiness at the center of the Tree is vital and so too is the need to understand the significance of that emptiness.
Focus: Meditation, silence, sleep
Card #4 - Gevurah: Left Hand - Judgment
The fifth Emanation. The hand that separates. The rule of law that brings order to the world. Gevurah assesses what is just, helping us overcome our adversaries both without and within. It is her power to cleave apart a unified whole and leave its component pieces. It is a trait that commands as much fear as respect because with it comes an inherent violence. She does this without enmity--it is an act that must be committed to create balance.
The red orb exists as a boundary, closed to the unworthy.
Gevurah's position at the center of its pillar defines that pillar's trait of severity. Her push against Chesed, on the opposite side of the Tree, is met with equal and opposite resistance. Without both of them in equal measure, we have no means of maintaining healthy relationships. We must have judgment to discern what is healthy for us, so that we can bring it into our lives and embrace it.
Focus: Law, bravery, punishment
Thanks for tuning in this week!
