FLOWER OF THE DAY โ Frangipani (Plumeria alba)

Flower Affirmation ~ "I am happy and free"

Frangipani new photo webcards



Will Assist You ~
by helping boost your confidence and showing you where you may find greater freedoms and harmony. Releasing you from what holds you. If you are looking at taking a break or a holiday, Frangipani helps you to really enjoy yourself and to recharge.
Language of Nature, Flowers and Plants Oracle ~
The true feelings of yourself or another are in focus at the moment so be sure that you take notice. If you are looking for the answer to something, it is yes or positive in it's outcome.
Opportunities for holidays, rest, as well as renewal and even beginnings is surfacing for you.
Be very careful not to take anything at face value right now and step carefully because you will be fully held accountable for your actions at this time.
Gardening Note ~
So easy to grow in most warmer climates. They do not like the cold and prefer a war sunny spot for best growth. I've always grown mine from the cuttings and found that although you can just stick them in the ground, for the best and strongest growth, dry them out in a cool dry place for 6 weeks and then plant on top of a fish in sandy soil or you could just use Seasol :)
Flower Lore ~
Oh there are so many wondrous histories connected with Frangipani. Two of my favourites which I practice myself ~
you must wake them up each morning as some Asian Monks do by gentle knocking on them.
Another, from South America, is to always plant them at the front of cemeteries or your home so that evil spirits are confused by their scent and pass by.

May Nature Bless you always,

Flower of the Day ~ โ Oleander (Nerium oleander)

FLOWER OF THE DAY
Oleander (Nerium oleander)

Will Assist You In ~
Taking on difficult or challenging activities which will bring a positive outcome. This ca be anything from staring a new project to even undergoing surgery. Oleander helps with the anxiety and fear surrounding such things and puts them into perspective. Helps you see both sides of a situation more clearly.

Language of Flowers Oracle Messages ~
Olendaner indicates sudden positive breakthroughs and the end of pain or suffering. You could be charmed or even enchanted by someone or a situation and are warned to proceed with caution. All could be well but make sure you hold your boundaries.
Be careful that any anxiety you may be experiencing is not overshadowing a chance for growth as it could be at this time. You do ned to participate a bit more, as difficult as this may seem. Cynicism and outright nastiness are energies which may be present, be cautious but don't let it impede you.


Oleander new photo webcards

Gardening Notes ~
You need to garden with extreme caution (if at all) as this is a very poisonous plant to people and animals. Usually beautiful scented and a really gorgeous looking full shrub they have been a favourite as a garden filler and council road side plant for decades because they are very hardy. Temperate and above areas only as they dislike the cold but other than that, they are almost indestructible and can be planted in just about any situation.

โ How Can You Explore Your Passion & Power with an Oracle Deck?

Researching and studying ethnobotany (the relationship between people and plants), the language of flowers, healing modalities which are flower~based, the traditions, myths, folk and herbal lore of flowers, I found time and again, the patterns which lead me to easily creating Flower Oracles based on themes which relate to us directly. This is a foundation of ethnobotanical study and makes it rather easy to create a tool for personal growth, healing and guidance. My new Oracle Deck ~ 'Flowers of the Night Oracle' is part of my over three decade commitment to the study of flowers and us and the themes of power and of passion ran strong and true through all flowers which either blossom at night or have physical attributes which the night enhances such as a far stronger fragrance.
We can not have access to all the flowers of the world every day in our pocket, so it was my hope many years ago to create oracle decks which would share the Flower Wisdom and Lore with everyone, no matter the season or where they found themselves. There is great truth in following the signs of the seasons which surround you but even in the most ancient traditions, people have used images and dried botanicals and taken much interest in the dreams and visions of those plants not in season or in the immediate surrounds to guide and support. The absence of something and our continued connection with it actually shows a stronger connection to it's meaning, message and gifts.

Exploring your Passion and Power with The Flowers of the Night Oracle
Within the Guidebook of the Oracle there are reading spreads and other suggestions for using this deck for yourself and for others. Readings can answer questions and assist with topics focused on finding your passion in life, in understanding why it may be difficult to find or to stay true to the course began. Suggestions on additional paths to explore and solutions to difficult issues which have arisen. The meanings of these Flowers are naturally stronger than others and they are clear, focused and very easy to follow. They may in fact at times be a little too strong. Think of Jasmine. At times we may enjoy and in fact need to have our senses flushed with the aroma, and be tangled with it in our hair as we pass through a summer filled arch of it's glory but at other times perhaps just a faint remembrance on a warm breeze is enough. We do not want to be overwhelmed with it's intoxication. Floramancy, Flower Reading with the Flowers of the Night, needs to be approached in the same way.
Exploring your Passions can be a subject which requires additional illumination. Passions which are aligned with romance, creativity, career, friendships, life direction, blocks, these are areas which benefit from the wisdom and the energy of the Flowers which connect with the Shadows, with the Night. These Plants bloom strong and clear in the evening, they call out in the darkest night with their fragrances, their energy , empowered by the moon and stars and bring with them strong messages which you may learn from and align with.


Fox tv Damask violet ecardExamples

As I mentioned, oracle reading spreads are included in the Guidebook and you can use these for general readings along with reading spreads that you may already know and any topic
can be explored. By using the Flowers of the Night Oracle cards, you will see readings which are a little stronger in emotion and message, particularly over other Flower Oracle Reading Cards. For example, a simple three card spread exploring the past, present and future of an issue could bring up Night Flowers which share messages connected with themes such as sensuality, awareness, intuition. Flowers of the Night would be showing you that the answers may lie in how you feel about a the issue, that you are becoming more aware of these feelings and perhaps you could use you intuition a little more when looking towards the future. I would use this Oracle if I felt drawn to do so in a general reading, if I wanted to explore the powers and foundations that surround the issues or the passions and emotions which drive it.

If you wanted to explore the theme of Passion more closely, this deck is perfect. The Flowers all connect and align beautifully with Power and with Passion and you will find it very easy to attain deeper insight into both. Use the provided spreads or others and once you settle on your direction of discovery, you will find that the Flowers drawn from the deck with provide a very clear path to follow. Assistance is offered to those working out what their passion, their passion is, how they can better attain a life which is filled with this passion and how to overcome challenges. Guidance and clarity can also be found in matters of romance and of the heart, including close friendships. Questions can be answered and timelines can be formed to give you a plan and direction.  


Card of the Day
In a similar way your powers can be examined. What is it that is hindering you? What needs to change? How can you strengthen your resources or even find them. The Flowers of the Rose 1 Night will bring forth these answers in any oracle spread you use or even more simply as a Card of the Day. I find drawing a Flower of the Night from my growing deck each evening to be a fascinating lesson. I can see what it is that I could focus on internally that night in order to make a change for the coming day. For example, last night I drew The Rose of Mexico and it's themes are strength and resilience, of over coming what may seem insurmountable. That night I did lie in bed and had a few moments of reflection were I realised that I had been worried about a difficult issue. I felt so much better as I calmed myself and focused on being stronger with hesitation the following day.

Flower Therapy
All of my Flower Reading Oracle Cards are based on the Tradition of Floramancy, a divination tradition which aligns with the Language of Flowers but has a far greater connection with the Doctrine of Signatures and Herbal Lore. Because of this, the cards can be used in healing modalities as the actual attributes which you will find in these modalities are the same. In Flowers Essence Therapy they work wonderfully an additional attribute resource and prescribing tool. In creative meditation they could provide a focus and in all healing modalities as a guide to the properties and wisdoms of the Flowers. The Flowers of the Night, with their nature focus on Passions and Power could also be a really interesting counselling tool. Those working with aromatherapy could also find it an interesting resource to explore the properties of those flowers suitable in this modality. 


If you would like to know any more about this Oracle or any of my work with Flowers
or have any questions, 
I would love to hear from you. 

Until then, 
May Nature and flowers bless you always,

Flower of the Day ~ Sturt's Desert Pea

New webcards sturts desert pea

 
















 

 

Card from Australian Wildflower Reading Cards Oracle '
Sturt's Desert Pea' linocut, gouache on paper Cheralyn Darcey


Will assist you in ~
Overcoming situations in which you feel momentarily powerless by enabling you to accept and move on. Support for those who are taking things too personally. Sturt's Desert Pea gives great perspective in all things and offers emotional healing.

The Language of Flowers Oracle ~
You need to let something go. You may not be able to sustain long term improvement or change so it may be better to count your loses and move on. Be very careful of giving too much of yourself at the moment as you could open yourself up to emotional hurt. You do not know all the facts to a situation.

To give to another ~
"I am sorry for your loss"
"Wishing you well again" (emotional or mental healing)
"I support you"

Gardening Notes ~
You are in for a challenge. I have heard you ""treat them mean to keep them keen" is in order but I like to love my plants so I rather look at this as providing the thought environment which they are used to!
Do not fertile or water too much. Soil should be sandy, open and, well, like the desert! I've grown them once in a pot successfully on a hot window sill. They like it hot and they like it dry. On my list for this Spring in our new home!
Plant in Spring from seeds.

FLOWER OF THE DAY ~ Jade Vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys)



Jade vine new webcards



Will Assist You In ~
Jade Vine assists those struggling with being heard, who are looking for resolution in situations and who may also wish to either join or create new groups and communities. An excellent flower in the aid of healing work in general as it opens up pathways that may be unfamiliar.
The challenge that Jade Vine presents is in the clarity of information being heard. Misinterpretations are a common theme as are loss of files, misplacement of paperwork and disruption of communication devices.

The Language of Flowers Oracle ~
Such a powerful lesson from Jade Vine. Native to the rainforests of the Philippines, this plant has evolved to look like the folded wings of a butterfly at rest which enables it to be pollinated by bats.
If you feel drawn to this flower today it could mean you need to look at new ways in which you can communicate. It also speaks of a change in the way your current daily life looks so travel, a change of environment or position may be forthcoming.

Gardening Notes ~
A tropical plant which loves full sun on it's leaves but a shaded root area. Really only suitable for Northern friends here in Australia and tropical areas elsewhere. Like most tropical plants it will require a lot of feeding and to be kept moist. You will need a lot of care with position and will need to grow against a support of some kind.
Have a wonderful day!!
