Learning the Greek Alphabet Oracle: Alpha

Welcome my very first week in the Learning the GAC series. I loved walking through the Ogham as a system that I wasn't familiar with, but this time we're diving into the Greek Alphabet Oracle, or the Olympian Oracle which is one of my very favorite methods of divination. Before I discuss our first symbol, I want to give a little bit of context to different pieces you'll see below and explain what they mean!

  • Description: This is a combination of the original text for this oracle and my own interpretation for what the symbol represents.

  • English Letter: Which English letter the Greek letter is aligned with

  • Knuckle Bone/Dice Value: There are ways to use this system of divination using either knuckle bones or dice and matching the value of those items to the letter in the chart. These may be discussed more in depth in a later post, but you can find more information here.

  • Color: This is 100% my own interpretation and feeling tied to the symbol and has no historic context at all. Feel free to ignore it if you don't agree. ​

Alright, with that information in mind, let's jump right into our first symbol: Alpha! Description: “The God [Apollo] says you will do everything {Hapanta} successfully.” Alpha is a symbol of positivity and accomplishment. it says that success in everything has been foreseen by the god Apollo. Apollo was one of the Olympian deities. He was the god responsible for music, poetry, and divination. Because of his gift of foresight, Apollo indicating that something will be successful feels like a prophetic gift. In my own workings, Alpha represents the idea that current goals or projects will be prosperous if you continue moving forward. It’s also a message that you are on the right path and should trust your instincts. Alpha may also signify the end of a struggle, where things can come out in a positive way despite doubts or heartache. Essentially, it says that things will turn out well, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they will turn out the way you think they would. Ultimately, it is a message of success and that alone can be a very positive message in readings.

Below are a few attributes of this symbol:

  • English Letter: A

  • Knuckle Bone Value: 30

  • Dice Value: 30

  • Color: Blue

  • Memory Phrase: All things are good!
