Return of The Spirit Oracle – Take Flight

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” 
― Leonardo da Vinci

It’s been ages since I’ve sat at my computer and written anything, let alone a blog post. I suppose the current Moon in Aries has me feeling a bit motivated even though I’m emotionally in a weird space. I decided to work with the Return of Spirit deck for this blog post. It’s an oracle deck that I find myself turning to whenever I’m feeling internal conflict. It’s an extremely intuitive set of cards.

I focused and asked the cards about what I’m feeling at the moment. “Take Flight” practically flew out of the deck. What’s interesting is that the cards message doesn’t align with what I’m feeling at the moment. This card encourages one to come out of seclusion, yet I find myself wanting to curl up into a ball and hide. I don’t want to start making friends (as this card suggests) I want to dissolve into myself.

I pulled my tarot journal out and really started to think about this cards message of groups and social surroundings. Perhaps I need to find a group of individuals who are feeling the same way I do: Feelings of isolation and confusion.

Maybe I need to stick with my intuition and look at this card for what I felt when I first looked at it: moving away from energies that are causing me a lot stress. Take flight for me means getting the hell out go doge for a few months allowing myself to focus on my spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. I need to spend time looking towards the sky at my ancestors and calling on them for guidance.
