The conflicting thoughts and peaking emotional situations that have been the main theme of the week, are not governing the situation quite so much today. You are encouraged to stand clear of any turmoil today, and view the situation in a more detached manner. Recognising that there are no “winners” or “losers” will help you in discovering a clear way forward, to ascertain the wise counsel that has the potential to emerge from any discussions that take place over the weekend. Remember that your intuition is something to be regarded, and that through listening to this small, firm and yet steadfast voice, you will be led in the correct direction. Fortune stands guard over the future, but the doors that are open for you only stay there for a short time, before the wheel turns, and the opportunity disappears for another while. Know that this is an important time for following your inner voice, apart from the supports that you may have come to rely on lately. Although your concerns may be with a lover, colleague or family member, ultimately it is your own story that you are writing, and you need to keep yourself as the main character, or risk being written into the backstory of someone else’s life.

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.
