DAILY POWER ANIMAL
Dolphin spirit | Engage in joyful play.

Ever watched a school of dolphins playing with each other, or with the surfers in their midst? If you have, you’ll understand the message Dolphin brings today—the message of joyful play. Dolphins are in total harmony with their environment, and practice love for each other—always helping the young, or a sick comrade. Join Dolphin’s happy community today and celebrate how much we’re all alike, instead of focusing on our differences.

Dolphins are commonly associated with being playful, joyful, and ready to help. These animals get along with most species. Presumably, that is because of their high intelligence. We are amazed and intrigued by the nature of this animal. It represents divine love. With its communication skills, playfulness, ability to solve complex tasks, and willingness to help and guide other species, this animal is by far one of a kind. Dolphins have a strong individuality and play a unique role in a group setting. There isn’t one single pattern of behavior that we can relate them to, as they are all different from each other.

It is believed that dolphins have psychic abilities. They seem to understand the higher truths in life and apply them daily. When you can see the whole picture, the only thing that’s left is enjoying the part you play in it. Dolphins have effortlessly accepted their fate and have decided to get the most out of every experience life has to offer. They are considered the most intelligent animals on earth -some proof of that is: the ability to use different objects to achieve their goals, having complex emotions, like grieving the death of loved ones, mimicking and teasing others as a form of entertainment, and being gentle to other species.

Dolphins are the connection between humanity and nature. They embody the elements of water and air. Their higher intelligence is represented by the element Air, while Water is a sign of emotional depth. They embody joyful energy, filled with curiosity and intuitiveness. However, their playfulness comes from their ability to see the bigger picture and to care about other animals. Dolphins can be seen as humans’ best friends in the ocean. For centuries they have been guiding us,  swimming with us, helping us through different experiences in our life, including the miracle of giving birth. They are a symbol of protection – there are various tales of them saving sailors from drowning. In Greek mythology, they are guides who have helped people go through different realms. In this sense, dolphins are not only associated with intelligence and playfulness but with protection and spiritual awakening. They are thought to have metaphysical qualities. They can sense different animals and because of their highly developed brains, they know how to appropriately react to any situation. A sign of their high emotional intelligence is their ability to play with each other and other species. This is one of the few animals that experience such a colorful palette of feelings and is entitled to having an authentic personality. This means that there is no universal knowledge of how dolphins behave. Whether they’re introverted or extroverted differs from one animal to another. However, the personality trait that they all share this kindness and curiosity.


DAILY ORACLE CARD
IX | 9 OF WANDS

The Nine of Wands tarot card is one that symbolizes great hope even when one is faced by many problems that threaten to make them lose their balance. The Nine of Wands symbolizes one’s life, which has undergone too many trials but through their determination and will, they were able to overcome them. These won battles are symbolized by the eight upright wands; however, there are still more trials that the person may face. This can be one major trial or challenge that they are supposed to face for them to reach their goals or be successful in their quest. The card is a sign of hope and encouragement that you should face your trials with courage so that you may attain success.

The Nine of Wands symbolizes a life of someone who has undergone many trials, but through determination and will, they were able to overcome them.

The Nine of Wands may also mean that a person has been betrayed and has thus become mistrustful towards others. This may be because of something that has happened a number of times, and might on first glance seem hopeless. But there is also hope and courage here, and the belief that this outlook is about to change. Someone or something may come into their life that will change their whole view of their past struggles. It encourages one to take that risky move because they may be surprised.



JANUARY 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR

1/14/2023 LAST QUARTER IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.

1/21/2023 NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy.

1/28/2023 FIRST QUARTER IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
