The Daily Oracle: Tuesday October 31st-Samhain

It is time to let go of emotional patterns which have prevented you from expressing your true self, however, the process may be painful, either emotionally or physically. As a result you are particularly sensitive during this time, and need to take good care of yourself. Events or people around you are likely to upset your equilibrium, and there may be a general sense of introspection that sees you pondering on childhood memories and relationships, particularly with parent figures. Although this can be a painful process, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and you have the opportunity to gain new understanding of past events and move forward in your life with wisdom and insight. The spiritual lessons that you have learned in recent times, stand you in good stead, and you are able to see further than the events that are happening right now, to a place where you are able to finally let go of something that has been on your mind for some time. You may also be gaining clarity into a dynamic in your life that has been confusing and unclear. You may be able to see now where you may have fallen prey to deception, either your own self-delusion or someone else’s veiled actions. The tense feeling of being unsure as to exactly what is going on, begins to fade now, leaving you feeling more certain about your readiness to let the cleansing power of endings move into your life.

The Chariot, The Nine of Vessels, Death.

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 allow 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
