Quick question before work to apply to everyone re: what hidden insights re: this aspect will help us reach our collective highest manifestations.
Strength of God is evident in the artistic representation of Archangel Gabriel. Saint Gabriel who rules Moon (currently in Virgo), is the patron saint of messengers and all communications workers. Gabriel helped the prophet Daniel interpret dreams, and is often associated with blowing the horn of judgement.
Gabriel is pictured with a white lily which represents Mary receiving the news of her blessed pregnancy. S/he delivers sacred texts, is associated with making seemingly simple messages drop onto our path at the precisely right time resulting in profound perspective shifts.
This is the final marriage of the two trees of life – good & evil, knowledge of both; the wedding of soul & body; time and eternity. Gabriel harmonizes opposites, integrates spirit with manifestation, delivers divine gifts.
This card also exemplifies freedom of spirit consciousness; the heights of sexual flame (genie lamp) known as the little death, heavenly ecstasy on earth. Divine messages in tandem with working heart, mind and soul results in humanity skillfully executing physical manifestation of higher realms of spirit consciousness here on Earth.
