With gentle hand and eye she charms the beast
And teaches him the time to speak. Released
From fear of one another, freedom grows
For each, a bond that blossoms like the rose.
It’s love, not force or fear, that tames the beast!
Today, the Full Moon in Taurus, illuminates a tense T-Square in the skies. The Sun conjoins with retrograde Venus in Scorpio, opposing The Moon & Uranus conjunct in Taurus, both of them squaring the North Node in Leo. These energies are closely reflected in the cards today, with Strength (Leo) & Death (Scorpio) both present. Issues regarding ego, and allowing situations that you have been battling with, to pass out of your control are on the table today, and although this experience may be difficult, you are also aware that this needs to happen, in order for you to move on in a more balanced way. Power struggles, revelations, manipulation, pride and jealousy, all struggle against the desire for freedom and liberation 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 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.
