“Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho
All is available to you today, but on a deep level you may still be fearful of something that appears beyond your control, and which is likely to be strongly connected to past events. Be aware today of the tendency that you may have to “feed your fears” and try to look at what any fears are telling you, what do they need, what is it that you are missing. Be gentle with yourself today, and recognise that you have all that you need, that there is no need to fear at the present time. Gratitude for the abundance that is with you will help to release anything that seems unpleasant today.
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.
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.
