January One Card Draw!

The January One Card Draw is now OPENCLOSED! As usual, this draw will be open for 24 hours so that all time zones and schedules will be able to take advantage of it; I'll stop reading in the early evening and pick up again in the morning, finishing anyone who requested overnight. :)

Comment and I will pull a card for you from my original, unique bird oracle deck. Anyone and everyone is welcome! The more detail you give in your request, the better I can interpret the card's meaning for you, which is my role as intermediary, however, even just a general request will get my best effort; it's up to you. For privacy, you may post anonymously; sponsors may choose to get their reading via private message.

If you are facing a choice, the cards may help point in the most positive direction for you. You may request an overall card to meditate upon. You might want a card to let you know what new thing may come into your life in the near future, or what is the most important thing facing you at this time. You may ask a specific question and we will see if the universal subconscious can answer it for you. However you use this opportunity, I hope it will be helpful!

Today, I'm working for tips; please support my work if you can!
If total tips exceed $25, I will select from all sponsors to receive a free Wings reading. At $50, a random sponsor will receive a Simple Nest reading. At $75, everyone gets into the running to win a Wings read, and at $100, everyone gets a chance at a Simple Nest. Thank you for your support!
Can't afford to donate? Spread the word! Post a link to my draw in at least two different places and you can request a second card! (You may treat it as a separate request or use it to get further information about your first reading!) Thank you!

Update: Unfortunately, we did not make any of our incentives this month! Here's hoping for better luck next month; thank you for your support!









As always, please see the disclaimer on my profile page. Also, remember that you can purchase a read at any time from that same profile page!

I'll take a card (and so sorry I can't donate. :-( )

Any clue how my SSI decision will go? I have both of my outside exams (psych and medical) coming up in the next few weeks.

Hrm. I drew Bluebird. The search for, striving for happiness, and the fleeting dream that happiness can be. This bird is more about the surface than the depth, about possibility rather than reality, too gentle and nonaggressive for passion or drama, too much a creature of the present to be complex. This is also the "social butterfly" of birds, charming, light, a true extrovert and the source of "a little bird told me".

Okay, it took me a while but I suspect that you may get a "we only looked at the surface" rejection this time, and need to go back to get them to REALLY examine your case. You can try pushing them, gently and charmingly, to REALLY look this time, but I'm not sure how that will go. If you DO get rejected, you should definitely re-file.

Sorry I don't have better news!

I'd like a card please.

There has been something on my mind recently that's kept me from sleeping and has thrown me into panic in the middle of the night. Do the cards have anything to say about this and whether what is bothering me is valid or not? I'd like to find a moment of peace or acceptance so I can just move on.

Thank you!

I concentrated on your request for a moment of peace or acceptance so you can move on and I drew Gull. This is the bird of manhood from a broader perspective, encompassing everything from the chivalrous, protective, poetic knight to the rowdy, noisy and untidy sort.
I'm not sure I need to give you further interpretation, but if you feel confused, let me know!

I would greatly appreciate a card - anything the Universe has to say, although I'm curious about the outcome of Hubby's upcoming re-venture into working for himself/from home with the plan as it currently exists.

For you, I drew the Magpie, a very appropriate card as these birds are natural risk takers that thrive on the constant change that life provides. I would say this bodes well for Hubby's venture...or, at least, it suggests that he needs to do it regardless of the outcome. He will definitely follow through. Whether it works or not...I think you are there to balance him if it doesn't.

Good luck!

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I selected a card for inspiration and I got STORK! *much giggling* *ahem*
Unsurprisingly, the stork is associated with birth, parental care and sacrifice, as well as familial duty generally, home and hearth, the bringing of a person to new life both figuratively and literally. Storks, noted enemies of snakes, are silent and communicate with bill clapping and body language.

*pause*

*more snickering*

(Note to everyone else: Ellen is my friend and happens to be very pregnant at the moment.)

I am beginning a financial venture that I would like some ... I guess feedback on (the direction, confirmation.. something).

*hugs*... (will get my debit card in a few for a donation).

Thanks!

I drew Goldfinch, and I feel that the gold in its name is an auspicious sign! This bird brings flashes of insight and speaks of suddenly seeing something that was hidden, especially a hidden choice.

I hope that helps! (And thanks; it's been a VERY slow month.)

Yes... I feel like I'm on a new path to some financial security that I never saw before (or at least had the opportunity to follow).

I know... January is the worst month for any kind of retail... been there, done that, got the tshirt and the trophy... lol

*hugs*

For you, I drew the Frigate bird. In many ways, this is the ultimate bird of the air. With the largest wingspan to body weight ratio of any bird, they can literally remain in the air for over a week at a time. They are known as pirates and thieves because they often steal prey from other birds, although this is actually only a small part of their diet. These birds teach about mystery, especially the mystery of lifestyles dramatically and intriguingly different from our own, sometimes misunderstood, but always fascinating.

I could really use a card today. thank you!

For you, the Rook. If a rook leaves, you should too, because bad fortune is coming. Bow to the wisdom of the birds, respect their intelligence. This bird warns of blushing/embarrassment, shame, being knocked off one's high horse, being judged. They advise piety and propriety at the same time that they themselves are cheats and thieves. This is the bird of humility and temperance.

Whoa, heavy. I hope that it's helpful!

Thank you, dearling! I am not sure where that applies, but I will definitely work on staying humble and tempering my actions and words. *hug!*

Last one before I crash for the night. (I'll pick up anyone who requests overnight in the morning!) Welcome! Glad to have you here! :)

For you, the Osprey. This bird worships the sun. A noble bird, able to attract prey by sheer charisma but with a high code of honor. Respect others as you respect yourself (and vice versa), even those you clash with, showing respect via restraint. This bird sees through rationalizing/self deception as well as other illusions. This bird is drawn to water as well as the sun, and represents the harmony of sun and water...think of the way the light flashes on the waves. Splashing in, eating of fish.

This is a good card! I hope it has meaning for you!
