The Shining Queen, who rules the velvet night,
And nurtures nascent growth, concealed from sight,
Transforms and changes, wheeling light and dark,
And seeks the Sun to sire the unseen spark.
The watery depths bring forth the Child of Light.
Death really is taking center stage in this cycle, as is only right at this time of year, with so much emphasis on the sign of Scorpio. Today, in accepting the passage of time, and the changes of the seasons of your life, it is important to focus on the wealth that you possess, the strength, solidity and beauty of your own body, the sensuality and generosity that you share with others, and the ways in which you can nurture and respect yourself and those close to you. Keeping this energy to the forefront of your mind today, and focussing on standing central to any changes that are occurring in your life, will help you to free yourself from the countless worries that may well be assailing you. Know that these are your fears and worries, and not a true reflection of what is actually happening.
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.
