Free yourself from the complexities and drama of your life. Simplify. Look within. Within ourselves we all have the gifts and talents we need to fulfill the purpose we’ve been blessed with.
Today you are drawn to examine your family or social network, and to look at where you may need to make some adjustments. You can see that you are at the end of an emotional journey, and that changes may need to be made, but could be unsure as to how to achieve this. There are aspects of this network that are no longer required, and in a way, they may be robbing you of your resources. You know that there is not enough energy for everything, and that choices need to be made. Think carefully today about what is most important to you, and try to concentrate on that, nurturing that which is essential, that which is connected to your deepest sense of self. In this way, you allow the blossoming that is required to come forth, rather than wasting your efforts in places that will bear no flowers. There is no obligation to keep the connections that were valid in the past, but which are no longer relevant; the seasons of life come and go, and with them our wider community changes, reflecting the changing patterns of 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 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.
