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.
After dancing around in the shadows during the week, Death finally emerges into the reading. Today you are able to accept the gifts of the recent changes that you have been experiencing and to trust in the difficult sensations of endings and loss that may have been prevalent in your life in some way. Through this acceptance, you are able to open yourself to a new way of relating to others, but it will entail a willingness to jump into the unknown, and to risk all that has gone before.
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 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.
