The Pentacles exert the force of Earth, whose Dryness sets the shape, a rigid mold,
a body joined together by the Cold. The solid ground of life confirms its worth.The Five erupts beyond the ordered bounds; the Crisis shows another world surrounds.
Today you may be confronted with a loss of faith in yourself, or someone close to you, which challenges your position of solidity and achievement. It may be important to recognise today, where you may have been trying to hold on too tightly to past versions of yourself, rather than to move with the times. Take a moment to look at exactly what you have achieved lately, and the new sense of strength that is emerging, and consider how any difficult feelings may be fear based, and connected with your fear of uncertainty and the challenges of moving away from who you thought you were. Financial concerns may be the backdrop for your worries at the moment, and may well be a reflection in the outer world of the sense of uncertainty that you harbour about your own value. Remember today that you have come a long way, and that the uncertainty about your own value and self worth that may have accompanied you in the past, and separated you from all you had achieved, was for a purpose, and that reconciliation and acceptance, both externally and internally is now 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.
