Today’s cards are from The Archangel Oracle by Doreen Virtue. The illustrations are by Catherine Andrews and Marius Michael - George
Relationship Harmony with Counselor.
Relationship Harmony came up again today and, instead of reposting the blog I did previously on this card, or even drawing a different card I asked for another card to further illustrate the point that the angels want to get across to us today. The second card was the Counselor. So today we are working with Raguel, the Archangel of Fairness and Justice and Azrael, whose name means ‘Whom God Helps’ and is the Angel who helps souls to cross over at the time of death.
The message that is coming to me today is that there are many times when, no matter how hard we try to make peace within a relationship, or even just make it work day to day, things just don’t go the way we plan or would like. Particularly with Mercury in retrograde now, a lot of us may find that communications with others go awry. We may be misunderstood or just not be able to communicate exactly what we need to. This can then lead to arguments and problems, and even worse, to separation.
If you find yourself in a situation where you are getting nowhere in a relationship, yet you still feel that the relationship is right for you, then today might be the time to look for outside help to get you back on track. Counselling can be beneficial, but also help from friends or family members you can trust to be truthful with you. Just talking things over with someone who is not involved can shine fresh light on your problem and give you new avenues to ponder.
The important thing to remember in any relationship is to be yourself while allowing the other person to be who they are. Sometimes we unintentionally try to change someone, to fit into our own idea of who they should be. This can cause resentments, conflict and an undercurrent of stress without either of you being fully aware of why. We all have a desperate need to be loved and will often sacrifice who we are to make a relationship work. But in the long run this just causes unhappiness. The hardest thing we must learn in life is to love and accept our selves for who we are. Only then will we find we can confidently enter into relationships with others that can be filled with love, while still being uplifting and giving us the freedom we all need to be happy.
So spend time today considering what help you can obtain to help your relationships. Open yourself and talk to someone who can offer an honest, unbiased opinion. And also spend some time looking at what you think is lacking in your relationships because this is the biggest clue as to what is in fact lacking in your relationship with yourself.
