The Daily Oracle: Tuesday October 16th

The Nascent Moon commands the sunless skies,
And offers wisdom to whoever tries
To cross the desert. Guardians must be
Appeased to make the passage from the Sea.
Approach the dreadful Dark with insight’s eyes!

A trio of major players today on The Oracle… indicating that the surrender of some cherished, or long standing attitude or state of mind may be called for, in your desire to be free from an apparently unending cycle. Although this may well be a state that you have thought long and hard about, the answer may seem evasive and unobtainable. Allow time, and the workings of the unconscious to play their part, rather than battling with what you cannot hope to change, as this leads to the best result. Although you may be in an “impossible” situation, try to relax into that place, surrender your ideas about what is “meant” to happen, and trust in the process.


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.
