The strong creative power that I spoke of yesterday, peaks today, although your excitement and desire for a quick outcome may cause you to react too hastily or prematurely. Your body is capable of expressing unusual amounts of energy and effort today, so it may be wise to channel this energy into some physical activity rather than pushing on in areas that require rest. It may seem like the need to act NOW is imperative, in fact you may feel rather obsessive, but as the I Ching advises caution today it may be wiser to heed this. Try to avoid arguments and quarrelling today, as this may lead to separations with others. You have the ability to take things slowly if required, so it may be advisable to tap into this energy, even though you may feel that in doing so that you are not getting your point across.
As a complete departure from both the Thoth deck, and in fact from Tarot altogether, I am spending some time next, with an (arguably) far more ancient form of divination, The I Ching. In this form of divination, “hexagrams” are created either through the casting of sticks, coins or rice grains. I will be using sticks, harvested this summer from my mothers apple orchard, one that she planted herself, as I channel the wisdom and intuition of the feminine, down through my feminine line.
Even before Tarot, even before Astrology, my first passionate teenage divination relationship was with The I Ching, and I am delighted to be sharing my re-engagement with this craft form here on my blog, thirty five years later!

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.
