The sharp-edged Swords divide the misty Air, whose Moisture lets them yield to outer form, but they divide and sever, for they’re Warm. With nimble strokes their edges split the hair. By Eight degrees the wheel of nature rolls; Reciprocation balances the poles.
It does not seem to be letting up this week…. and again, decisions or choices are on the agenda again. Today you need to recognise your own part in the dilemma that you are in, and how you may have brought much of it about yourself through a desire to be clever, or to avoid “hurting someone”. It is important to recognise today that you have the power to end this situation well, if you are prepared to take responsibility for the hurt or upset that you may have caused, to yourself or to others. Honesty rather than avoidance is key here, and you may well find, that looking at things in a different way, or approaching matters from a radically different viewpoint can bring about the end to a stalemate situation that has been plaguing you. Once you change your view point, the game plan alters dramatically, allowing new energy to flood in, cracking open the stale and outworn structures that no longer hold relevance in your life.
This month, inspired by my three week exploration of historical sites in Ancient Mesopotamia, The Daily Oracle this month will be devoted to my exploration of The Mythic Tarot. Published in 1986 by Juliet Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene, the cards are drawn by Tricia Newell. I have loved the ancient greek myths since I was a child, and often use this deck to do readings when I am “stuck” with something for myself. I find the insight to be gentle and direct. The Verses that I have used for each post are the work of the gifted John Opsopaus, whose work 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.
