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.The source is One, whence things are brought to be, for chaos is the Primal Unity.
After the last couple of days, with all the passionate and emotional energy that has been flowing through the cards, the Ace of Swords enters the game, alerting you to the fact that the old order is under threat, and it is possible now to put an end to the self destructive mental habits that undermine your ability to move forward. You recognise again, as you did last week, that your sense of stagnation is only caused by a fear of what may happen if you accept change, and that in order to truly move on with things, you need to recognise that the fears that you have, are merely the product of your own mind. The physical change that you fear, and also that you crave, is within your power to attain, you can make the move if you desire, when you recognise that the structures that you have relied on to keep you “safe” in the past, may now be acting as your prison. Staying in this realm, without making a clear decision to move out of it may keep you in the realm of nightmares. Make the decision today, to move on.
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.
