Spiritual Manifestation: A free reading from the Journey Oracle for Autumn Equinox

Autumn equinox is a time of harvest.  Of gathering into the storeroom of our awareness what we planted and tended with our physical, emotional and spiritual intentions.  This is the time of receiving nourishment from our inner garden.

Here is a Journey Oracle reading for you to use to access insights about what you are manifesting during this season of harvest.  My own reading notes are written in blue to serve as an example of how you might conduct your own reading, but they are not a "right" or "correct" way to explore the analogies and metaphors of the Oracle pronouncements.

The Situation
How is this an image of my garden?

My intention for the year has been to 
accept what I have already been given; 
to not be in doubt but in trust 
of my connection with the Spirit world. 

I see with a woman with a flame of personal power 
holding aloft a heart.
Beyond her is a snake.  Do I see this as a threat or an ally?

How is this an image of your garden? 

Here are the pronouncements from the Oracle about your situation.


This situation began by forgetting to ask for signs.
The prevailing energy of this situation is a downward movement.
The core energy pattern of this situation is old stars.
The Mother of this situation is striped with sun.
The Father of this situation is still alive.


Your perception of the situation is wondrous.
The impact of this perception is alive in fire.
Your relationship to the prevailing energy is flowing on water.
The connection between the core energy pattern and the situation
 is felt as a rough touch.

The momentum of this situation is fed by resting.

This last pronouncement has a special ring of truth for me. 
 I often push too much, try too hard. 
 Perhaps the most important word in my intention is "accept."

The experience 
What am I experiencing 
in this situation?

I see a creature that looks threatening if I look
at the right eye, benign if I look to the left.

Naming it makes it so.  

What are you experiencing in your situation?

Here are insights about your experience
from the Journey Oracle.

something to learn


An exterior or support system for the situation is embryo.

 I like that the support for my experience
is an embryo.  Something just forming; full
of possibility.  I can be in fear or
in delight about what I am growing.
My choice.

What change is calling me; the 
change that will help me be nourished 
 from this situation?

I see an intensity in this gaze. 
I have a feeling of being watched.
Do I actually realize what I have been given?

What change is calling you in your situation?

Here are the Oracle pronouncements about change.


 The power needed to shift this situation will be a sound of clanging.
Change will come by unexpected acclaim.
Your relationship to the change in this situation is shut tight.
The moment of letting go into the change will smell soft.
The concern to be avoided within this change will taste oversweet.

The wisdom of speaking out will empower the transformation.
Completed transformation will be felt as a quality of having claws.


 Are you letting others tell their story in their own way?



There are so many insights here that I think
I won't try and reveal them all.  
Speaking out, having claws, rain
are all the best answers 
for how to be nourished by what 
I am harvesting. 

The resolution 
What are the insights from
my unconscious wisdom
about this spiritual manifestation?

I see a tiny figure going through an opening
while a being made of wood, water and stone
watches from nearby. 

I feel I am being shown to turn around,
 to see what is everywhere surrounding me. 

What is the resolution  of your situation, 
this manifestation you are harvesting?

Here is a Journey Oracle fairy tale
in which you intuitively know the meaning of 
all the characters, the connections to your 
situation, and what is the happy ending. 

A Journey Oracle fairy tale
A long shape passed by. One end formed a slight diamond which tapered to a thin needle. The shape was brilliant turquoise; as if nature’s usually somber palette felt it was time that something went amuck. Four fragile lines of neon orange waved behind the shape, occasionally flaring open in unison and then pumping closed, as if continually pairing and seeking each other. From the center of this motion drifted two electric red lines that were pulled along by the jerking rhythm of the creature. A squadron of turquoise shapes passed by, their pulsing movement like blows at the water through which they swam.
“These must be shrimp larvae” the woman thought as she gazed over the side of the boat. “Even though sometimes I crawl inside some of the logs I find in the woods, I have never seen creatures as strange as these.”
The shrimp squadron moved through a cloud of tiny white lozenges. At one end of each flake was a whirling wheel of hairs, causing the creatures to tilt in different directions as they drifted, like they had a memory of snow.
“There is another whole world in there, and my usual short attention only allows time enough for easy tasks—never enough time to see the truth of things hidden then revealed. Who would imagine that a shrimp on a dinner plate had a life as a jeweled soldier? This might be a place of misunderstanding for us humans. I need to do homework about the whole life of what lives in this place with me, instead of settling for the incomplete view that creatures are only valuable if they are useful to me.”
Minute transparent circles came into view, each with a cross of iridescent rainbow threads marking its four quarters, which fused into a tangle of lines that dangled below the slowly meandering balls.

         “Jellyfish babies,” the woman said. “I guess the spring sun is calling all kinds of food back into the water.”

"...time to see the truth of things hidden then revealed."
This reading is showing me how to be in trust
rather than doubt, how to see the whole life 
of what lives with me in the
seen and unseen worlds.
Turn around.  

Happy Autumn from the Journey Oracle
