A fiery line up today, drawing your attention to the importance of not overstretching yourself. Although you have been working hard to achieve something, there is a sense that you may have been putting too much energy into the wrong place, and that in fact what you need to do is relax a little and spend some more time doing what you love. Too many projects at once, will not necessarily help your ship to come in any faster, and in fact may block your true desires from manifesting in the way that you dream of. Take a break today, and think about whether the direction that you are going in really serves your overall plan, or whether you may have become distracted by the vision of an easy way out of a dilemma. Remind yourself of the importance of having fun, being creative and exploring as yet untried areas.

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 traditional 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 allowing 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.
