The Daily Oracle: Thur October 18th

Desire draws the Moon and Sun to hold
Each other; hid in darksome depths, the bold
Embrace of sibling spirits joined in love
Unites the world below with sky above.
Unasked, the Dart of Passion strikes; be bold!

In the desire for relationship, the search for the “perfect” union, we are prone to unleashing a torrent of difficulties within ourselves….. and when relationships collapse, or run into difficulties, it can feel as if our world has ended. The appearance of The Star today, reveals that hope is not lost, but that it may be important not to place all your hope in one place, on a desired outcome, or person. If any decisions need to be made today, recognise that hard work and focus will need to be employed, rather than wishful thinking or praying for a miracle. It is time to be “grown up” about things rather than “childish” and see that the deeper experience and engagement that you crave in relationships , will be the result of a deeper and richer knowledge of yourself, in all your aspects.


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.
