Oracle of the Week: 4 - 10 March 2024 – Environmental Awareness

Oracle of the Week: 4 - 10 March 2024 – Environmental Awareness

Hello, my oceanic and watery loves! This week’s oracle, The Coral Reef Sea Queen, really made me catch my breath. The Coral Reef Sea Queen is charged with protecting the reefs of our beautiful, blue planet. The keeper of these vibrant marine sanctuaries, she maintains a lush and nourishing ecosystem to the world’s waters and marine life. Sadly as we all know by now, that environment has suffered abuse and trauma beyond measure.

Here in Salem, MA (US), we are used to long winters, blanketed in snow and ice, but as the year’s have gone on, we’re seeing less and less of this and more and more loss of snowpack and wildly oscillating temperature extremes. Even now, at the beginning of March, it’s far too warm here. Climate change and collapse may be hotly debated political topics, but the evidence to support them is clear and the oceans are suffering; however, this card brings more to the table than just awareness of the physical environment. That physical space may be viewed as representative of our inner space too, so I suppose that the Coral Reef Sea Queen felt my disquiet over the too warm, snowless days and made her face shown to me in order to bring her greater message to you. Let’s see what she’s asking us to reflect on this week.

17. – Coral Reef Sea Queen: Environmental Awareness  

From the guidebook - the sacred meaning of this card:  Stay alert; be conscious of your environment; bring understanding to your difficult experiences; heal yourself first and foremost; as above, so below

As above, so below. We hear this phrase often in our magickal practices, regardless of the school of craft or faith we come from. For the Coral Reef Sea Queen, this message is especially important – but the below in this case is found within us. We can call upon the Coral Reef Sea Queen to begin healing our minds and bodies, and then extend that energy to the planet itself. As she protects the ocean’s reefs, so does she protect our inner sanctuaries, our inner reefs, from harm.

She asks that you contemplate your own reality – trauma, abuse, wounds, and scars as well – and mirror that to the health of the planet. By beginning to heal ourselves from within, we can eventually use that momentum to work together to heal our planet too. How, you ask? Unhealthy, untended, and un-healed mental and spiritual states of being lead us to make poorer and less informed decisions when tending to ourselves. As we begin to heal from within, we can also begin to contemplate healthier, more sustainable ways of living, eating, consuming, thinking, and loving others. And when we begin to make that shift in our own lives, we project that into the world.

After all, while it may feel like we are powerless in the face of mega-corporations or national governments who are the largest disrupters of environmental sanctity, our choices do matter – and the smallest changes can often have the biggest impact. When we begin to truly heal, when we begin to truly live intentionally, those around us take notice. People are often influenced by action over words. Seeing you heal and grow and make conscientious choices to live in harmony with, and protect the world around you, that speaks volumes, and they will begin to follow. So, heal the world with the Coral Reef Sea Queen’s guidance – and she asks you to begin by going within to heal yourself. She will be there for you through this journey if you allow her to stay!

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.
