Flights of fancy .
Now whilst there might not be any real life flights this Easter weekend and there isn't a literal appearance of a dove on any of the cards, today's tune from the universal comms team is an all time feel good favourite of mine, " On the wings if a dove " by Madness.
The lyrics are a perfect way to bring a smile to your face and warmth in your heart !
"Take time for your pleasure
And laugh with love
Take the hand of another
And sing for the wings of a dove
For the wings of a dove
For the wings of a dove
Look up at the rooftops
When you're walking round
Don't think for a moment
Of looking down"
We may not literally be able to take flight, but our imagination can take us anywhere we desire.
Which is a seamless link to our first card today, a reappearance of the Ace of swords ( swords representative of the element of air, thought and mind)
So in short an inside job !
Angel Number 1(ace) is a reminder from your angels that we are all connected and we are all associated by our thoughts. Angel Number 1 asks you to be aware of your thoughts and focus upon your true heart's desires so that they are able to positively manifest your desires into your life.
Look at the shaft of light in the picture, at the centre of all the thought and trying to fathom and work out the complexities of life right now, there can still be lightness, brightness and moments of pure genius.
Today on Facebook I've seen the creativity of families across the land. From the paddle pool, fully equipped with an inflatable unicorn in the back garden of a friend in "Costa del Carlton" in Nottingham, to reminders for one family of sunny days in Cyprus, in their Jacuzzi in Sleaford.
It's all possible, just with a little thought, a sprinkle of manifesting magic and belief that in our imagination, anything is possible.
Our second card today is another sword. This time the king himself.
We see him on top of a mountain, with snowy topped mountains behind him. This reminds me of photos I've seen in recent days of the Hymalayas, the clearest view that there has been in many a year, now that the air is not awash with pollution.
He rests his right arm on his right knee, after all he relies on his masculine energy traits or logic, data and facts. He has a certain maturity , wisdom and knowledge. Flying by him we see a bat.Because of their echo-location and maneuvering in the dark, bats represent the perception of things that others cannot see. ... Bats often represent death in the sense of letting go of the old, and bringing in the new. They are symbols of transition, of initiation, and the start of a new beginning.
Behind him on a high post we see raven.The raven totem signifies mystery and divination, and the attraction to the magical or mystical ways.People come to him because of his knowledge and wisdom in the hopes that he can help them see the future or find the right path to success and love.
On top of the pole we see the alchemical symbol for air, which is an upward-pointing triangle, bisected by a horizontal line.
Air represents the breath of life!
It is an exchange of electrons or flow of energy. ... The element air, is associated with the autumn season. The Air Signs of the zodiac are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius and they are the possessors of the virtue of knowledge.
This idea of knowledge links with the wise owl sitting at the kings feet.
The owl spirit animal represents the deep connection that he shares with wisdom, good judgment, and knowledge.
Like the owl, which is known for its sharp vision and keen observation, this king also possess insight and intuition. ... The owl totem also means that he can see beyond the masks that people wear.
It certainly feels like he's steering our trajectory. A little like the science that advises us on how to proceed in these unprecedented times.
Our final card today is the 8 of pentacles ( representative of the Earth element and manifestation)
Angel number 8 can be related to infinite love, infinite energy or something other that you may have in abundance.
Also, it is considered that number 8 is a symbol of self-confidence, success, inner wisdom and compassion.
Other meanings of angel number 8 are decisiveness, self-discipline, efficiency and prosperity.
We see a young woman meditating on a green (heart chakra) candle, flame flickering. Around her we see an abundance of bowls with food, plants, herbs and spices. She has all of the ingredients she could need to create her manifestation.
We also see books and a quill pen, suggesting she has done much study to reach this place.
She has put her meraki ( love, soul and energetic essence) into her endeavours. You could say she is truly on purpose .
The colours of change and passion are also in this card.
Perhaps she is showing us that we have time for both creative play and manifestation whilst we are in this time of being overseen by the King of swords.
We can use this time to imagine anything, to be anything and to create our true purpose to be manifest perhaps in the autumn.
Wow what an uplifting set of cards today.
Happy Easter x
