A window of opportunity is suggested today, as a situation that is likely to have been experienced as stubborn and challenging, comes to a place where it is possible for things to change. Where you may have felt like you were wrestling with something that was beyond your ability to overcome, the fixity that was all engulfing becomes apparent, and you are able to allow in the energy that is required. There is no doubt that you will forever be changed by the experiences that you have undergone lately, but you can take heart from the fact that you will be stronger and more resilient as a result. This new strength is testament to your powers of endurance, and you are able to view the recent events that have been occurring, against the backdrop of your wider experiences, and see the value that has been gained in the process.

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.
