The Deck of the Avatar

July 10th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

The show may have closed in May, but at least this video lets us see a little of what we missed.

Artist and writer, William Stoneham, was part of the exhibit, Oracle: Visionary Art Expressing the Prophetic Voice at Oakopolis Gallery in Oakland, California.

The show featured visionary art and imaginative paintings and animation surrounding the theme of prophetic dreams and oracles.

Not only was Stoneham’s artwork displayed, but also his own oracle, The Deck of the Avatar was put into service. Stoneham himself gave readings during the show.

In the video, he talks about his deck and how it grew out of his paintings, and how his paintings grow out of his visions and dreams.

The story of card #9, the Ghost, is especially haunting.

Moon in Scorpio – High Priestess in Death's Clothing

July 10th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess in Death's ClothesThe moon moves into Scorpio today and stays there until Tuesday.

If you translate this transit into the Tarot, you could say that the High Priestess is dressed as Death. She’s in the midst of a great transformation.

The Moon in Scorpio, or High Priestess in Death’s clothing, suggests a time when feelings run deep. The ability to end relationships that don’t work, or release stagnant emotions is accentuated.

If there’s a situation in your life that’s nearing its completion, especially if it’s emotional or relationship-oriented, this might be a good time to let it go. At least explore it with emotional clarity.

This isn’t a time to be afraid, but rather a time to face your fears with equanimity and intelligence.

You’ve got what it takes. Don’t back down from the scary stuff.

#15 The Devil from Georgie's Tarot

#15 – The Devil

Don’t be frightened by the Devil but certainly take him seriously.  He’s no lightweight.  He is earth – the deepest and darkest part of it and he plays hard. 

He is physicality, materiality, reality.   He’s in the world of the senses unhindered by the spirit or the mind.  He is what we can see, hear, smell, touch and taste and when he’s around it’s hard to get enough.

Obsessive behaviour is highlighted today – what’s yours?   You’re probably fixated on something – good or bad? 

Sex, drugs and wild living might be obvious places to look, but could your obsession be something you don’t even notice because it’s an ‘acceptable’ addiction.  Maybe too much study, work, an unrelenting compulsion to make money, an obsession with being ‘right’?

Once you’ve found your mania, take a look to see if it’s a problem or not.  It’s up to you to decide when you’ve had or done enough.  Sometimes you need to obsess for things to really happen.  Or are you just making excuses? 

Watch for a feeling of disjointedness within yourself.  Does it feel like your spirit is in sync with your conscious behaviour or are you wrestling your ideals to fit with what you’re actually doing?

Love, live and laugh hard today but pay attention to whether or not you’re actually doing what you need to be doing. You’re the only one who can chain or unchain yourself to anything.
