A day where you may feel that the peace and harmony that you seek seems to be eternally beyond your reach! The cards today speak of the need to recognise that not all things are possible right now, and that moderation and process are necessary to reach your goal. There is no use in straining at the leash and wanting everything achieved right now, and in fact, if you are drawn to consider too many plans at once, then you may lose your momentum, something that at the present time, you are afraid of doing. You are reminded that balance is imperative in all things, and that making the right connections with the right people, can help you more than you may initially recognise. Even people that you would not normally turn to, may be able to help your cause, it would be unwise to dismiss a any helping hand, just because it has not helped in the past. Out of the losses and mistakes of the past, new growth will occur in time, and the knowledge of this will help you to make peace with yourself, and to overcome any fears you may have of being bound by the turmoil of your thoughts.

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 allow 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.
