Oracle: Goddess Themis
Book: Fortuna, Creation through the Goddess

Invocation:
Goddess of Wisdom, Themis, Mother of the Fates, Bringer of Justice and Peace, help us to create our own future!

Oracle:
Those who declare they seek Wisdom do so often for its own sake. In their hearts they crave for love, success and happiness. But none of these gifts can be theirs without wisdom.

I cannot give you wisdom. This can only come from your own selves, when you have the honesty to learn from your past errors. You cannot transform your future and so acquire eternal reality, without facing your own fallibility. Even the Fates have a Mother. There is always a greater Deity whispering in the ear of a mighty God!

Listen. It is easier to wait for an Oracle with stilled mind than it is to listen to those around you. It is hardest of all to listen when you are criticised. But too often your friends harm you by always agreeing with you: it is your enemies who can bring you the greatest benefit by their censure.

Wisdom comes not only from listening but through seeing. Apparitions of the Deities do not come to those who only look at the tips of their noses, and never gaze with interest at others outside themselves! Watch a child at play and you may see a prophet. Every young girl can be the Sphinx. Three old women sitting knitting over a cheap oil-stove may be the Fates.

It is not enough to receive wisdom. It is necessary to act upon it, and this is the real test for my book-loving students! For such philosophical souls, it is easier to meditate on justice than to defend a neighbour: more pleasant to believe in peace, rather than to intervene in a conflict in order to resolve it.

I whisper in the ear of Zeus: I do not shout at him! Follow my example. You will better bring your own perception of truth and goodness to others when you listen to their own ideas. Arrogance, whether spiritual or intellectual, blinds you to the concealed Goddess or God disguised in some ordinary form. I can speak to you through a cleaning woman, a dog or even someone you dislike. If you follow my advice you will create a transformed future without enemies, folly or misfortune. I am Fortuna. By using symbols I create the future. Learn to make your fortune by reading your own palm!
