The Daily Oracle: Monday August 21st-The Total Eclipse of The Sun

It seems fitting that the draw today, on the occasion of a solar eclipse, where The Moon takes center stage, that we have  three cards from the realm of Binah, what an intensely feminine draw! So on this day, take the time to rest a little and to acknowledge how far you have come lately, the ground that you have covered, and the difficulties that you have overcome. Now is not the time to make new inroads, or to push ahead with anything new in the outer world, it is a time of acceptance, or darkness, of fertility. This is the time of conception, of creation in the unseen worlds where the seeds of new dreams are germinated in the soil of our past achievements and watered with the sorrows that have fallen on that soil. The tears that we have shed have not gone to waste, for they will grow the next phase, the phase that we can conceive now, while we rest. Now is the time to let go, and to allow the darkness to soothe us, as we make ready again for the light to return. Along with the general buzz of the solar eclipse, a harmonious bond between the New Moon & Uranus today, suggest that although it is a symbolic time of rest, it is also a fertile time for the conception of new ideas, even if they seem quite radical, or different to what you have been doing in the past. This moment favors a keen interest in ideas which are progressive or innovative, with the emphasis being on scientific, inventive or exciting approaches. Ideas that are concerned with changing things around and bringing improvements into your life is well starred today, as you recognize that it is time to express your individuality in a spirit of freedom, openness and experimentation. You can see today that in this way your energies will have the chance to become more balanced, and that there will be a clearer expression of your inner masculine and feminine energies, ego and emotion.

  1. Beautiful! I was looking forward to your todays reading. My (not so) favorite decan card 3 of swords, right in the middle.

    Ego alone is insufficient to sustain what is unnatural. Whatever is taken away will create an attraction for something more appropriate to who you are now, and who you are becoming.
