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.By Four-square poise an Order is defined, in double pairs the disjoint poles to bind.
After the turbulence of the week, take time today to withdraw if you can, and to focus within, in order to gain a calm perspective on what has occurred. Moving away from external stimuli will help you to hear your own voice on the matter, and to help you to see what material changes need to be made in order to move forwards with your plans in a clear and calm way. The potential is there for a smooth passage to a better state of mind, if you take the time to rest, and although what lies ahead may seem challenging you are reminded today that you have the abilities to change your situation easily now, to leave the past behind you, and that the path towards your goal is clear.
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.
