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!
A day to recognise where you may have invoked conflict in your life through your choices in love, but also how this has put you on the path that you are now on. Learning how to handle the inner conflict that is instigated within relationships, without having to “end it all” defines the passage towards learning about “adult relationships” no matter what your age. You gain a clear perspective today into the power of a loving and loyal heart, and of how these are a necessary part of any true bond. You see too, the power of a relationship that is able to withstand destruction, change and transformation, and which is able to rise again to become stronger, more passionate and more authentic than 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.
