Emphasis again today on looking at the stagnant emotional situation that you maybe in, and the fear that keeps you from moving forward. Rigid patterns, that have their origins in your family history, keep you rooted in a place of safety, but in a way that impedes growth. Your fear of collapse, and of breaking with tradition, keeps you imprisoned in a safe but uncomfortable place. You are challenged today, to risk moving beyond what is known, and to seek the renewed source that awaits you when you have the courage to break free of your limitations. On some level you are being asked to wake up and smell the flowers, to recognise all that is being offered to you, if you seize the potential that lies in the current moment, if you trust in the seed that you hold in your hand.
The Four of Vessels, The Ace of Vessels, The Lady of Coins
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.
My name is Joanna Grant, I am an Astrologer, Tarot Reader and Writer, who lives on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in the South West of Ireland. I can often be found at home, deep in arcane research, or practicing some new form of divination whilst burning the dinner! 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. My long knowledge of Astrology leads and informs my practice, in offering guidance, empowerment and healing, helping others to lead a more authentic and magical life. You can read more about me here.
