The Daily Oracle: Monday October 15th

The Lord of Death is paid in bitter coin
For dissolution, hoping he’ll rejoin
The scattered parts, far better rearranged,
For callous Death’s decrees cannot be changed.
“Accept thy fated end,” he doth enjoin.

Today, on some level, you become more aware that the joyful and blissful state that we all aspire to in any relationship, the “Honeymoon Period” is merely the starter, and is never meant to last, and nor is it a true relationship. The depths to which a complete relationship is asked to dive to, is unknown at the beginning, and many people cannot last the course, faltering at the degree of intimacy and surrender that is required, for a true union of hearts. Insight today, illuminates some aspect of your relationships that you may not have recognised until now, and you are prepared to look at how in protecting your wounded side at all costs, that you may have kept yourself in a place of “youth” and “naivete”. Pay attention to what comes to you today.


This month, 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 Head Shot Fadebeautiful 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.

  1. This struck such a cord. My relationship with my mother has always been difficult and thus my relationship with myself. I feel so sad that the point of realisation is the point of giving away that which I have come to own.
