Our card for the day, Monday, March 11th, is taken from the Angel Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine – Four of Fire – “Contentment, peace, and abundance. A happy home life. The successful completion of a project.”
– The suit of Fire represents our ideas and inspirations; it’s where we feel passion, display amazing creativity, and set our dreams into motion.
– The picture on this card shows a gold dragon inside swirling yellow and gold energy which is in the middle of 4 wands that are forming a square.
– There is a gemstone on the top of each wand and each is a different color – red, gold, green and orange. The wands themselves are blue. Underneath each gemstone is a unicorn.
– Red rushes to us with messages of passion, primal urges, action, pleasure, vibrance, radiance, and love.
– Gold represents the infamous legend of alchemists turning common metals into gold is actually a parable for the human quest to change base vulgarities like greed, hate and selfishness into qualities like love, virtue and compassion through the process of self-purification. Ergo, gold is symbolic of this transition of the soul. (http://www.symbolic-meanings.com/2009/10/07/symbolic-meaning-of-gold/)
– Green represents attributes of youth, sentimentality, nature, adventure, growth and health.
– Orange is about harmony, aspiration, sociability, contentment, and intelligence.
– Blue – open spaces, freedom, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity.
– Yellow is all about radiating creativity, protection, intellect, positivity and clarity.

– in the background it appears to be a planetary alignment which would stand for this being the perfect time to succeed in whatever you desire to do.
– Dragons were chosen to represent the suit of fire because of their fiery nature and their iconic place in our imaginations.
– Unicorns were chosen for the Angel Tarot Cards because their tranquil essence symbolizes peaceful thoughts.
– The meaning of the number 4: “The angels are with you. They send you the number 4 to reassure you that they’ve heard your prayers and are helping you.” Taken from Angel Numbers 101 by Doreen Virtue.
– This card is all about being in the flow of abundance in all areas of our lives – love, financial security, a fulfilling career, all the things that make life good. It is a time of being at peace, and being content with our lives just as they are at this moment. However the energies are still swirling around us and that means everything is subject to change. We are still undergoing our spiritual transformation which will still mean that we will experience some disruptions in our lives in the form of physical complaints, short tempers and so on as we progress.
– The spring equinox on March 20th is said to be the end of an almost 26,000 year cycle known as the Precession of the Equinoxes – A slow westward shift of the equinoxes along the plane of the ecliptic, resulting from precession of the earth’s axis of rotation, and causing the equinoxes to occur earlier each sidereal year. The precession of the equinoxes occurs at a rate of 50.27 seconds of arc a year; a complete precession requires 25,800 years. This is supposed to be the time when the earth’s axis which has been pointing into the sign of Pisces for the last 2,150 years will now move to the sign of Aquarius. Hence the Age of Aquarius that we are moving into. Because the earth’s wobble on it’s axis and the pull of gravity from the sun and our moon, some say we have already entered it.

– So this means more changes for the earth and all life on her but positive ones. This is also said to be the beginning of the Golden Age as talked about in the Bible and in the sacred writings of other religions as well. As our lives are continuing to change, this card is a reminder to enjoy the peace and contentment of today because all we know for sure is that change is an inevitable part of life on our beautiful planet. However, come what may, our angels are with us always and we are being guided, protected and provided for every step of the way. Remember you are so very loved always! Have a great day everyone!
