Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them.
Today, we might be coming up against the feeling that we are falling into repetition, perhaps working at something unfulfilling due to a fear of loss. We continue to go about our business, because we feel we must, even though it might be unrewarding, and we are not prepared to look at the “elephant in the room”. Emotional complexes are something that build over a life time, and although holding onto them gives us a certain stability, we may be finding that we cannot move very far, or very freely, because of a fear of breaking out of our rigid routines. Today we may need to consider the need to trust that our future will provide us with all that we require, and that no amount of holding onto unfulfilling work practices will help us. Allow the reins to slacken a little, and see what happens…. it may not be nearly as bad as you may imagine.
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.
