Happy Wednesday! We're a little behind this week, but let's jump right into some divination. This we I am using the Mythic Oracle by Carisa Mellado and Michele-Lee Phelan.
Hephaestus - Work and Passion
Helen of Troy - Beauty Within
Demeter - Harvest and Cycles
For more details on these symbols, read more below:
Hephaestus is the god of smithing and skilled work, and the fires that burn deep inside the forge. In this deck, his appearance indicates that wonderful things can occur when you do the work you love the most. Pay attention to the inspiration you are receiving, but also be willing to put in hard work. This will lead you to positive results. Helen of Troy was said to be the most beautiful woman in the world. Here she represents beauty in all its forms, and encourages you to look outside of the "standards" of beauty to find what makes you and the world around you beautiful, because you truly are! Demeter is the goddess of the harvest, and the creator of the cycles of the seasons. Her card represents a time of harvest. It indicates that "winter" or the cold, dark time in your life has come to an end, and that the seeds you have sown grew successfully. Know the seasons of life shift toward reaping the rewards of your hard work. It's time to receive those gifts. Taken together, this omen seems to indicate that we should be working on those things we love, finding the beauty in that work and in ourselves, and that the work we have done so far will lead us to many gifts. If this omen spoke to you, or you have another interpretation, I'd love to hear from you! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week.
