The Daily Oracle: Wednesday August 22nd

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.Buddha

Another day of facing up to the idea that your emotional structures, that have served you well thus far, may be in fact limiting your progress. A dawning awareness of this is occurring, as you look deeper and deeper into your self, a recognition that it really is time to change. Staying within the safety of those structures, keeps you firmly in the past, dreaming of a vision of the future that may never come to pass. Taking a clear and firm step to release these patterns, today brings success, as you look forward to a way of being that is not limited by the constructs of the past.


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.
