Today there may be an atmosphere of mental intensity, where communications may be coloured by troubled thinking, passive-aggressive argument or persuasive and crafty speech…. but on the other hand, it could all be paranoia!!. You might be over impressionable today, and rather than trying to win a battle of words, you would probably be better off withdrawing, and spending time on your own.
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.
