The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night
If you have relationship concerns today, you may becoming aware that you are supporting someone who is not as able as you on some level. Whether energetically, financially or emotionally, in some way you are providing the larger share of the strength and stability. You are aware too, that this needs to change, but it does not seem to be possible to do much about it right now. Be aware that there is an ongoing process, where you are building your own inner strength, in a way that will allow you to let go of needy or dependant people, in a way that does not lead to suffering or disapproval. You are discovering an inner sense of authority which will help you to take the steps that you need without the fear that your “dependants” will suffer unduly. In doing this, you help others too, as your growth will also be their growth, and the whole kingdom will benefit.
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.
