The Daily Oracle: Friday August 17th

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.  Albert Schweitzer

After the understandings of yesterday, you feel renewed and strengthened by what you have learned. The recognition of greater strength helps you now to get to grips with the prioritising that you have been trying to do, and you feel more able to cut away the things that are no longer necessary to you. Simplification will help you to give more energy to the important things in your life, the ones that serve your soul, and light the way to the future.


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

    It Only Takes A Tiny Spark To Light A Light

    Never accept defeat over anything; simply know you can do something about it. Look for the way and it will open up for you. For example, the world situation looks very dark at times and you think how grim everything looks. But never leave it at that. Consider for a moment what you can do about it. Never feel that one small individual is hopeless amidst such chaos and confusion Seek within and become very, very still and find that infinite power within you. Then use that power and send it out into that dark and gloomy situation. Remember it only takes a tiny spark to light a light and you can be that tiny spark. When many tiny sparks unite in thought and prayer and send out to any situation, anything can happen, and believe it will happen.

    Sparkle On!
