The fervent Wands convey the force of Fire, their Heat expanding upward, subtle, pure. With Dryness they impose what they prefer, for ideal forms ignite the will, inspire. By Four-square poise an Order is defined, in double pairs the disjoint poles to bind.
A strong message today, that will be reiterated in various forms throughout the week. On some level, you have reached a point of achievement, and what might have felt like months or even years of vacillation, seems today to be put into perspective. There is a sense that you have reached a point of stability that now cannot be taken from you, and you know that you are now able to use this as a base from which to move on. Although you understand that there is much work to do in the future, you also know that you are ready to start the next stage, and are now familiar with the theme of three steps steps forward and two steps back that seems to often accompany your endeavours. Ready and willing, you are once again prepared to take a leap of faith into the unknown, for you can now feel the strength of the uprush of energy that has been nudging at your awareness for the last few weeks. Although you have no idea what the plan is, that does not seem to matter right now, for anything is possible.
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.
