Contemplation card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Contemplation

Protect your embryonic idea through silent meditation.

We often forget the order in which things should be: FIRST God / The Universe / Higher Power, [...]

Descent card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Descent

Step down from ways that no longer support you.

Discovery

Dig down. Become aware of what’s been there all along. Generally when this card turns up, some previously hidden or obscure information about our family or community is coming to light.

Forgiveness card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Forgiveness

The past cannot be changed. Release old grudges and free your heart. The chart on page 65 of the Guide Book shows that FORGIVENESS comes long after we start our journey in the EARTH element.

Generosity card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Generosity

Share your riches freely & accept help when you need it. Giving to others helps us feel in control. But receiving? That’s another story! Most of us can be generous.

Rest card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Rest

Loosen your grip and let yourself relax. You’ve been overdoing it. Stop burning the candle at both ends and take a break, or your health, work, and relationships will suffer. If fear is driving you, it is time to trust that the Universe is not going to fall apart if you take time off. Your [...]

Simplicity card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Simplicity

Eliminate the excess. Boil things down to their essence. It’s amazing how relieved you feel when you drop your baggage. The good ole K.I.S.S. principle, “Keep It Simple, Stupid!” is what’s called for. We tend to gunk things up with too much stuff, too many ideas, excess emotional residue. Perfectionism makes us want to overwork [...]
