“And a woman spoke, saying, “Tell us of Pain.” And he said: Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.”
For the New Moon Cycle in Taurus, I will be reading with the Thoth… Much maligned and much adored, this deck always amazes me with its pure and vibrant colour scheme, colours that seem to speak to my soul.
A certain peace and acceptance emerges today, in the midst of difficult circumstances, a peace with “what is”. Through an awareness of the greater scheme of things, you are encouraged to draw back from a challenging situation that may be threatening your foundations and hooking in to old ways of thinking that really now belong to the past. Events may even challenge your ideas about who you actually are, but rest assured that you will be able to come through the experience stronger than before, and with a tale to tell…. and the knowledge that we are all beyond definition.
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 wish I was “normal” but will be delighted in the end, that I’m not. 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.
