The Daily Oracle: Wed October 17th

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.

Another day where you may feel “bound” by the decisions that you have made in the past, and where too, that you must take responsibility for your part in any dilemma that you may be experiencing. Events now are requiring you to look more deeply at your emotional side, and challenging you to explore this aspect of yourself more deeply. Although you may feel that you have lost out, this phase is unlikely to be the end, but rather an opportunity to make a stronger commitment to the future. All is not lost, something remains which can be worked on, and it is up to you to take up the challenge.


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.
