A Jupiter Venus opposition in the skies that accompanies Chirons ingress into Aries, brings with it a conflict between the desire towards sociability, and the knowledge that a new way of life needs to emerge. The desire to “party”, and to be dramatic and extravagant, could lead to overindulgence, and you may need to be aware that you could be overvaluing something that has passed its time. You are encouraged to go further than the “quick fixes” and to examine how in some way you may actually fear asserting yourself in the way that you deeply desire. Become aware to-day of the ways that you may over-compensate for this, and to see that through following your own authentic way, that you may become a pioneer in a way which will be of service to others.
As a complete departure from Tarot altogether, I am spending the next month with an (arguably) far more ancient form of divination, The I Ching. In this form of divination, “hexagrams” are created either through the casting of sticks, coins or rice grains. I will be using sticks, harvested from my mothers apple orchard, one that she planted herself, as I channel the wisdom and intuition of the feminine, down through my own feminine line.
Even before Tarot, even before Astrology, my first passionate teenage divination relationship was with The I Ching, and I am delighted to be sharing my re-engagement with this craft form here on my blog, thirty five years later! The images and Hexagram text are reproduced here with the very kind permission of Benebell Wen.
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.
