The Daily Oracle: Friday November 3rd

Powerful symbolism in the cards today, and the second time that The Chariot and Death have appeared together this week. On some level, you are now ready to take the steps to regain your sense of power and purpose that have been nudging you lately. Today the call becomes loud and clear, and you know that in order to get back in the driving seat, you need to be a little impetuous, and move forward quickly and without hesitation, even if there is a slight speed wobble in the process. Your desire, indeed, your deep need for powerful and profound change, clamours at your awareness, and it may well seem as if all things point in the same direction. You are advised to heed your inner wisdom at this time, for the advice and reason of outside interested parties is unlikely to be of much help, and may in-fact slow down the process. Although your decisions may well refer to others with whom you have close bonds, ultimately it is you who needs this change, for the understanding of your own self that is the gold that you are seeking.

The Emperor, The Chariot, Death. 

The Alchemical Tarot-The Lovers2
The Lovers2

Using the numerology method, the associated Trump today is The Lovers

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 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.
