With the Sun moving into Taurus today, it is a good month for establishing routines and material order into your life, although with the hedonistic side of Taurus also being illuminated, it may be challenging for those on any sort of “consumption detox”. Persistence is at a high though, so although this particular day may bring a lack of clarity, and unknown factors which may challenge your judgment, you may be able to find some relief through the practical use of art and music. Its not a day to make promises or binding contracts, but rather a time to soak up all the impressions that you are receiving, and to be inspired.
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.
