Oracle of the Week: 5 – 11 February 2024 – Celebrate Romance

Before you roll your eyes and click away (meh. Romance. Whatever. Right?), consider this: February is fully upon us, and Imbolc has just passed. That means we’re closer now to spring than we are winter, and we can mark this time as perfect for new beginnings as well as the stirring of love. While Valentine’s Day may take the spotlight this month and, let’s face it, evoke mixed feelings all around, it’s undeniable that, as spring draws ever nearer, we begin to feel it in subconscious (or perhaps conscious?) ways. We may start to feel a little more sensual, a little more alive, a little more awake. This week’s oracle is the perfect guide as we consider tuning our senses to sensuality and love, for this week’s oracle is…

24. – The Sea Goddess of Sensuality: Celebrate Romance

From the guidebook - the sacred meanings of this card:  Awakening all of your senses; consciously reactivating desire; alignment of desires and reality; celebrating the romance that is life itself.

As you can see, romance and sensuality do not have to mean sexuality, or even involve another person. When we begin to raise our minds and hearts from their winter slumbers or doldrums, our senses also start to awaken. The landscape around us shows promises of the pending spring – early shoots stirring beneath the snow, a slight greening all around us, the days getting noticeably longer. Our eyes, previously attuned to the monochrome of a winter world, may delight with these small, but unmistakable signs of the earth stirring. We may smell the hint of warmer spring air in the winter winds. If you live along a coast or a body of water, you may be inherently tuned in to the subtle changes in the seas or waters around you as well.

As you tune yourself to the minutiae of the world around you, you’re being asked to direct that energy and be in full awareness of your own emotions, feelings, and thoughts, and to see what it is you’ve really been manifesting. What have you been tuning into (and blocking out) of your vision? What do you want to see more of in your life? Run through each of your senses gently and pay attention to them as you would a lover. Notice the small things and ask yourself how you can align each of your senses more fully with your end-state desires in your own life. 

For those of you just joining us on this journey, we are using Justine Serebrin's Sacred Sea Oracle: Dive into the Depths of Your Cosmic Soul.
