Circle of Life - An Angel Message from a Spider

(June 23, 2013 early A.M. Spider Web.)

I hurried to the window early this morning, hoping to see the Super Moon.  Although it was not visible, another perfect circle stood out in the sunlight, a spider's web, in our neighbor's backyard. Several weeks ago, I was saddened when he cut down many trees, and left them in a heap.

Since then, I've been so thankful that the towering, older hardwood trees are still standing.  I find myself silently thanking them, appreciating their presence and not taking them for granted.  So,  in the midst of such disarray, the perfect circular web seemed like an angel message.

I wasn't sure what it meant at first. 

Then an idea came to me. 

The Circle of Life. 

And, how we are all joined together by one single thread, woven in a finite form representing infinity. With its shimmering in the morning light, I could see more clearly:  All life is related and each part should be accepted equally.

In Animal-Speak, author Ted Andews describes the spider as the guardian of the ancient languages and alphabets.  "Spider reminds us that the world is woven around us.  We are the keepers and the writers of our own destiny, weaving it like a web by our thoughts, feelings, and actions."

This circular web reminded me of a Hebrew letter shaped like a circle, Samech.   The symbolism is a circle, a wedding ring, or a prop.  The keynote, protection. 

A circle is infinity in a finite form, and all the points are equidistant from the center.  This symbolizes equilibrium in motion, a balance in this world while connected with the Divine.  Samech indicates a  need to open up more fully to the celestial realm and trust its protection. 

In yesterday's blog, I wrote about how summer marks the best season to connect with Nature and the angels.  I've been calling on Archangel Uriel for assistance.  How wonderful to see that portal opening up today in unexpected and creative ways.

The next time I returned to the window, the sun had shifted, and the splendid web was no longer visible.  A reminder that angel messages are always there, but illumination is necessary to bring them forth.  There is a divine timing.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
