The necessity to cooperate with others emerges today, with themes of obligatory teamwork, forced adjustments to situations and schedule pressures. Dealings with families or groups which are closely bonded raise questions of leadership and authority. The Full Moon, falls early this morning in the first decan of Scorpio, which is associated with the tarot card of The Five of Cups. This is the culmination of a six month cycle, which was started with The New Moon in Scorpio in November last year. You can click on the link to read about the meanings that I ascribed to this particular cycle last year, to see if it resonates with you.
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!

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.
