The ample Cups contain the Water’s flow, for Cold unites disparate kinds as one.
With Wetness they respond and overrun and, yielding, fill the emptiness below.The Knight, obeying orders, Undertakes a Venture, going forth, by duty bound, with Vital strength for which he is renowned. By wedding word and deed, the youth awakes.
The emotional opening up over the last few days, whilst full of promise, is still in its early days, and although promising, is not the final outcome. It is important to recognise now, that hard work still needs to be done, and also an acceptance that not everything will be a bed of roses. Some confrontation with your own darkness and passion, will be needed in order to enter into a fulfilling experience, and although in the past , you may not have wanted to address this aspect of life, you will have another chance to now. Take things at face value today, and celebrate what you have, whilst recognising that you are no longer a child, living in the “safety” of your mothers domain, and it is now time to know the true strength and power of your inner self, and all the richness and fertility that it contains.
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.
