The Daily Oracle: Wed August 15th

Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A clear message today, to prioritise what is important. Your life may have taken on a rather desperate feeling, where there are too many things to do, and all of them are fighting for your attention. “Fire fighting” is a stressful situation, and one that wastes energy, so that in the end, you are lacking when it comes to the more important things. You are challenged today to decide what really is important, and to put aside something in favour of focussing energy into nurturing and caring for someone or something closer to home. Today, it is important to show love and attention, to a situation that you may have been neglecting, with the future in mind, rather than using up all your strength on fighting your day to day battles, as in the end, they will have little importance in the greater scheme of things.


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 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.

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.
