Oracle Cards: How They Work
Predictions are amazing! They provide hope. Inspire you to go for it knowing there will be a good outcome, but what happens when you focus on nothing but what you want to happen… that’s the danger. And yes… everybody’s favorite… more myth-busting.

Essential meanings: A need to see beyond the superficial; the desire to don a mask or dress something up to disguise its true nature; trying to be something you’re not; chasing after every sparkling new thing; being mercurial.
The Oracle’s Message: It’s only human to want to adorn ourselves in trinkets and paint a pretty picture of ourselves. It’s natural to want to acquire the trappings of status—or to deny them as a statement of rebellion. But if it sparkles, is it better? Whether it’s a fast car, a big house, a title or position, the power of authority, or the sparkling of diamonds, these icons let us know something about a person, place, or thing. Or do they? The truth is that we seek to acquire things because of what they will do for us, and how they symbolically will elevate us and make us more attractive. This card signals that it’s time to see beyond the adornments and probe underneath the glitter. Learn to recognize the masks people wear and the motives underlying them. Imagine that all the glitter is gone. Would you still desire the object or person?
Relationship message: Sometimes we try to become something we’re not to impress others. We embellish a story a bit, adding some dramatic elements to make us more appealing. The real person becomes hidden behind the sparkle and shine. Then there are times when we don’t see the true value of someone else because he or she may not have the glitz and glamour that seem so desirable. Now is the time to look past the surface, beyond the mask, to the essence of a person. Who that person is, not what he or she has or can give you, is important now. See beyond the glitter and look for the inner glow. Use the eyes in your heart. Let go of artifice and let what is authentic shine.
Prosperity message: Sometimes an opportunity looks so good that it glitters like gold and you just can’t resist it, especially when it appears others are doing so well and have hit the mother lode! Just as during the American Gold Rush everyone hurried west to find their fortune and then deserted entire towns after the mining depleted the gold veins in the earth, so too can you to deplete yourself as you chase after the latest shiny thing that has caught your eye. There is a mercurial quality to your present circumstances. Pay no attention to those who chase after fool’s gold. Resist the temptation to be jealous of others. What they have achieved may not be the true success you seek, so don’t compare yourself to them. You see only the surface right now, only the sparkle. Be assured that you will experience your own shining moment if you stick to what you know. All that glitters may not be gold for you.
Essential meanings: Joy and contentment; a sense of fulfillment; a feeling that all is well.
The Oracle’s Message: Your desires are effortlessly fulfilled now. Find joy in the present moment, whatever is happening, and be satisfied with things as they are. You’re free from the shackles of longing and able to experience the liberation that comes from actually being happy moment to moment, for you have chosen happiness over yearning for it. Now is the time for feeling joy for the sake of joy, and experiencing contentment. None of this is because of something outside yourself. Your happiness is a result of your being at one with Spirit’s plan for your life. All is well. The tide is in for now. Enjoy playfully splashing in it.
Relationship message: There are moments in a relationship when you just feel good about who you’re with and you know that your heart is wide-open . . . to befriend, to love, and to care for another, without wanting anything in return. This is the kind of happy that you just want to share. The appearance of this card in a reading tells you that joy and contentment are here now, not somewhere else or off in the future. The grass is greenest right where you stand. Be grateful and delight in your relationship, and if you’re seeking one, be happy now- happiness attracts more of itself like bees to honey.
Prosperity message: This is a time to take pride in your accomplishments. You’re doing good work, providing exceptional service, and are well compensated for it. The world shines upon you with gratitude, and you’re happy with the results of your hard work and creativity. Isn’t it amazing all that you have done? Remember your partnership with Spirit in this moment too. You soul has always known you could accomplish anything if it brought you joy.
Essential meanings: Disarray; being at cross-purposes with another; the tension of opposites; the value of chaos before order
The Oracle’s Message: Opposing forces come together to create an atmosphere of conflict. But consider the value of Chaos that serves you well, as you become unmoored by its force and scattered to the winds, leaving the parts of yourself you no longer need behind and blowing seeds into the world to birth new life. Although the conflict appears to exist externally, its essence is also internal, projected outward and causing disarray. You may find yourself at cross-purposes with someone else, facing a storm you feel you can’t control. Yet every storm passes, and chaos leads to a reordering of things. Conflict provides a way to see more than one side of a situation. Look upon this as just a moment in time when you may need to take shelter and step away from the fray. Don’t be too eager to fight. This is a time to understand rather than to be understood.
Relationship message: Stubbornness is keeping you in a state of opposition. The incessant need to be right will only serve to prolong the conflict that deep down you want resolved. This is an opportune moment to learn about your values, your sense of self, what’s really important to you. Some things are nonnegotiable. If that’s true, it’s not necessary to fight, rather you can use the chaos to find a way to the truth. Can you find a way through the stormy emotions to higher ground? Soon the air will clear, and you will be in a much better place than before, for the storm will have passed, dispersing new seeds in its wake. Things can become electric and enlightened – always better than before if you use this time constructively.
Prosperity message: Circumstances appear to be chaotic, but everything that is happening now is in truth shaking things up so you can find the real path to your prosperity. Yes, it’s a stormy time, and it feels as if there are opposing forces wherever you turn. Be reassured that there is Divine purpose in this chaos. Everything that doesn’t work is being taken from you so the truest parts of yourself remain. The events occurring now are essential for your ultimate prosperity. This chaos is Divinely inspired even though it doesn’t appear that way now. In time you will know this to be true.
