The Sun conjuncts Jupiter today, bringing with it, a strong urge to grow, develop, learn and expand, to become bigger than you are now. There is likely to be a greater consciousness of spiritual values, and you may well experience the desire to travel or to reach out to new ideas through education. Optimism and confidence flows today, and there is likely to be an increased willingness to speculate or to take risks. The choice that was bubbling beneath the surface yesterday becomes further clarified today, as you see your situation simplified. The choice is between putting effort into something that serves your practical, material or sensual needs, and putting effort into creating what serves you on the spiritual and emotional, as well as the earthy levels. You see clearly today, that of all your options, you know clearly in your heart, which is the right path to take, but in some way, feel afraid of taking this step. The uncertainty and risk that is contained within the unknown may be off putting and scary. However, the alternative is to carry on in a way that you can see is likely to become more and more unfulfilling as time goes on, and today you are able to gain some clarity in this situation. What fears do you hold about following your dreams? Does scarcity and poverty make you fearful? Is it worth being enslaved to keep yourself in the “comfort zone”, or are you able to step free and to experience life in the way that you dream? Big questions today…. and in your heart of hearts, you know the answer. The only voice worth listening to is the voice of your own heart.

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.
