Fiery Mars has now entered Libra and you may be sensing a strong desire to create more balance and order in your life. Diplomacy and justice become more important now, as do the realms of creativity and relationships. However, as The Sun also enters Scorpio today, the next month may well be coloured by a rising desire for passion and fulfilment, in your life, and you may find that this conflicts with the need to keep things on an even keel. Today, it may seem that the repetition of your mundane life, although perhaps rewarding on a material level, is stifling you emotionally. Your thoughts are likely to turn to more creative projects, something that excites you and speaks to the depths of your soul. You may get the feeling that you are putting a large part of yourself on hold, compromising your personal authenticity in order to please others, or just to pay the bills. This month may well see this come to a head, especially towards the end of the week when Jupiter joins The Sun in the sky, although you may well keep your ideas under wraps for the time being. Today brings a clear recognition that you are able to change the way things are, and to bring new life to what you are doing, to become more closely connected with your hearts desire.

This month, The Daily Oracle will be devoted to my exploration of The Alchemical Tarot. Created by Artist and Scholar Robert Place. This deck envisions traditional tarot understandings within the wisdom of the alchemical tradition, and I have found it a very pleasing deck to work with. Providing interesting links between the more traditional interpretations of RW, and the energetic mandalas that I perceive within the Thoth system, I find this deck uncomplicated but also deeply insightful. The artwork is both peaceful and dynamic, and works to allowing the intuition to flow easily amongst the cards without the distraction that I have found in some other decks. Alchemy has long held a fascination for me, and I am very much enjoying my exploration of this particular deck, one that speaks with a gentle yet clear and commanding voice. Information on Robert Place, his work, and how to order this, or one of his many other tarot decks, can be found HERE.

My children probably wish that I was “normal” but may well remember my eccentricities fondly when they come to face the challenges of their own paths.
