The Chess Queen reminds us that we are not the only ones playing the game of life and that our strategies may be flawed if we’re only looking at the realm of Form within which to create our reality. Spirit is your co-creative partner and when you invoke Spirit and step into that vast all encompassing realm, the world lights up with magic. Leave the strategy to Spirit, focus on the essence of your desire, claim it now not down the road and watch the miracles begin. Spirit has a plan.
Transformation, intuition, patience
The Swan Queen glides your way and asks that you look at your reflection in the events of your life. She gives you the ability to see the beauty that has transformed your life from ignorance to wisdom. The Swan Queen lets you know that it’s time to go within and seek the answers in your own intuition. Don’t look outside yourself for answers now; the true power lies reflected in the still waters within you. Now is the moment to meditate and ask for a vision. The power of psychic perception is inherent in you, and the Swan Queen will help you dive deep into your query to find the answers you seek. This is also a reminder to allow time to transform ideas into reality. Nothing happens overnight.
This marker directs you into the unknowable Mystery of your journey. It is the sacred place where all things are created but are not yet formed. It points the way to pure power and potential, which meets the magic of intention. It tells you that the magical unknowable forces of destiny and fate are working in your life. The forces that you can never fully understand or control are, indeed, weaving their magic around you to help you fulfill your true purpose. There is, however, a warning to be humble here: The Mystery reveals itself only when it chooses, and not when or how you demand. The cosmic laws operate here outside of time and space, outside of human influence and intellect. Only hindsight will reveal their patterns. Only total trust and the deepest faith can be your allies when The Mystery appears as a sacred marker on your path. Sometimes it may seem as if you’re going backward, but truly, if you look at a spiral, it goes up, back, and around, reaching upward, although it may seem for a time that you are not. You are indeed progressing. Trust the Mystery, and keep going! For now, trust that the thread of your life is woven into the pattern of the Mystery with beauty, grace, strength, and purpose. This marker is an auspicious and profound omen that shows you that you are on the correct path.
The big picture, angelic help
The Eagle King is a sign that your highest destiny is within reach. You’re on the right path now, even if you can’t see where you’re going. The Eagle King soars high above the mountains and valleys of life and is able to see the big picture when you seem to be lost in a bit of a fog. He makes a formidable Ally as he takes your prayers up toward the sun and releases them to the Divine. They will be answered for the highest good of all. It’s a fortunate omen when the Eagle King decides to be your Ally.

Communication, praise, dishonesty
The Word Lord rules communication of all kinds and lets you know that positive interactions can be expected when he arrives as your Ally. He only speaks with positive words and praises all he sees. He reminds you of the laws of Abundance and Praise. When you bless the world, it blesses you back. When you say affirming, supportive words, they carry an energy that returns to you in physical form. Remember that each one has power and will resonate into the Universe, seeking its reflection in manifest form. Your body responds to praise, as does every thing in the world around you. Praise it for its inherent health and beauty. Applaud yourself for everything you do, as even the tiniest accomplishments are important. Praise your bills: give thanks for the services you enjoy, and watch the ability to pay them increase as you align with Spirit’s increasing power This is also a time to remember the powerful practice of affirmations. Write them down and speak them aloud as a spiritual exercise. Say it is so and it will be. It’s a very auspicious sign when the Word Lord chooses to be your Ally.
