Daily Angel Oracle Card: Pele ~ Purpose, from the Goddesses And Sirens Oracle Card deck, by Stacey Demarco, Illustrations by Jimmy Manton
Pele ~ Purpose: “Think clearly about your next steps. It is time to uncover your purpose. Create something new. Take action; do not hide or hesitate. Balance your emotional extremes.”
“Madame Pele, as Hawaiians refer to this fiery Goddess, embodies one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The spectacular Halemaumau crater on Kilauea Volcano, on the big island of Hawaii, is said to be the Goddess’s home, where she creates new land from nothing but passion and fire.
Born of the female spirit Hina, who was directly descended from the Earth Mother and the Sky Father, Pele is a much loved figure in Hawaiian mythology. There are many stories about the beautiful and lively Goddess, many of them showcasing her dynamic qualities of change and purposeful transformation. She can appear as an elderly woman with a small dog or as a beautiful young woman, depending on her purposes, and it is said she appears to her people just before a major volcanic eruption. She can be a jealous and forceful goddess and very possessive of what is hers. Beware, to this day it is not advised to take any stones from her volcanoes!
Pele is the perfect goddess to call upon when you feel directionless or unclear. If you feel bored a lot or unexcited about life, you may need her dynamism. She is a creative force dedicated to moving you forward toward living your true purpose. If you don’t know what you want to do when you leave school, aren’t sure which course to take, or feel a little stuck about what your next steps in life should be, Pele will shake you out of your rut and get you moving in the right direction.”
Shadow Side/Challenger: “Pele is notoriously changeable and impetuous, and she likes to get her won way. She can be an extreme personality who only thinks about her own purposes and wants. It is important that we develop the emotional intelligence to balance our most extreme emotions and to recognize that sometimes we may not get what we want straight away. Sometimes compromise is necessary. While it is very important to have goals and an underlying purpose in life, we need to be aware that we should not go after these things while ignoring the well-being and needs of those around us.”
Symbols: “Volcano, Fire, The Colour Red, Red Flowers, Silk Cloth, Strawberries”*

All this excitement and success needs to be fueled by passion, which will lend you the confidence to move forward fearlessly. What is it, exactly, that you wish to create? Where does your passion lie? How can you turn your passion into a gift that you can share with the world? How can you incorporate it into being of service, healing others, animals and the planet herself? Why did you come here to this physical realm? What is your life’s purpose?
Pele is the goddess of passion and action, she is all about moving forward fearlessly; claiming what is your birthright, getting inspired and motivated to create something big. She is about boldly standing in your truth; empowered communication; undergoing rapid transformation and dynamic change.
And she is not to be messed with! As she is passionate, she is equally volatile. Pele does not put up with any games; burning away the masks and excuses that have kept our true authentic selves hidden… keeping us stagnant and stale.
