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!
The theme continues on from yesterday, although you may have a better idea in regards to what you are struggling for. You are challenged to improve your offering, which can be hurtful to your pride…. I mean, “what was wrong with what you were giving in the first place?” On some level, you are being asked to step up your game, to really commit to what it is that you are seeking, if only to test your resolve. In some way you are being tested as to how much you want this thing, this vision that you have, and how far you are prepared to go, in other words, today, do not count your chickens, before they hatch!
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.
