After the calm of yesterday, you feel enthusiastic about all the possibilities that lie before you, and may well feel quite excited about moving on. Although you feel that you have done a good bit of work, and have got to the first stage , you also get the sense that this is a stage that you have often achieved in the past, before being faced with the results of your past actions. You may find yourself looking at not only all your achievements, but also with all your self betrayals, and this may often be the crux of the matter for you, the place where your heart tends to fail, and where you can feel like giving up. You are reminded again of the importance of choice, and the message from the beginning of the week, that you have the strength to achieve what ever you want, if you should so choose, it is all down to the power of your own vision, and your ability to see past your own doubts and fears. Like an explorer of ancient times, you are on a voyage that goes beyond your mapped world, where it says on the aging parchment “here be dragons”.


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 Head Shot Fadebeautiful 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.
