Ancestors and Angels - Guardians - Two

Today I'm exploring more into my new oracle deck Angels & Ancestors by Kyle Gray, art by Lily Moses. I wanted to start with a smaller part of the deck and become familiar with the it. Not just memorize the author's meaning of the cards but really fully connect with the intent of the card and what it says to me. 

We'll be going back to the deck and pulling four more of the guardian cards. I hope you enjoy.


The Protection Guardian comes with the message "Drop your shields". She wants us to release what is standing between ourselves and the things that bring us joy.  She is protective and loving. Her intent is to help us drop that which is hiding our gifts and allow them to shine through. She is calm yet assertive and reminds us to release any pain or embarrassment from our souls and reach out past that to grow and embrace the fearlessness and courage we have within.  When this card is revealed, it reminds us we are stronger than we think we are and we are protected from harm.

The Magick Guardian delivers the message, "Unlock the Magick Within". Many times we look to the world around us for our magick. The Magick Guardian reminds us that the magick is actually within us. Magick allows us to manifest the power at our will.  She helps us direct our will to bring items either into creation or to move items at our will. She holds a cup in her hand showing the magick radiates from with her. When she arrives in a reading she tells us to look to ourselves from the power and not to the external. It is our power and we own that power.  She tells us we are the gift and we have the power to make our will, reality. 

The Heart Guardian reminds us to "Love and Let Yourself Be Loved" on her card.  She can be called on when working with all matters of the heart. Be it love gained or love lost, the Heart Guardian is there to support us in our relationships. The center of the card has the sacred heart which is a symbol of boundless and complete love.  Love is around all of us, all beings on the planet. Love should guide us in all we say and do.  When this card is drawn we are invited to welcome in others into our lives, and be open to what love can bring us. All relationships, self, romantic and familial are included in this representation.

The Direction Guardian tells us to "Choose Your Path". This card tells us to follow our deepest desires. Take the road that leads to happiness and joy.  When we are at a crossroad, the Direction Guardian appears to remind us that we need to choose not the easiest path, and not the hardest path, but the path that leads us to happiness.  This card refers to Ezekiel, who met four faces at a crossroad. A cherub, a bull, a lion and an eagle. This reminds us that our messengers can have many faces but are there to support us in a positive manner. When this card is pulled we should understand that there are many directions we can travel. There are no wrong directions, just ones with different challenges and opportunities.

I hope you have enjoyed my take on these Guardian Cards. Next week, I'll be delving further into the Ancestors and Angels deck. Feel free to add your comments or questions - or reach out directly for a personal connection.
