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 usually whilst trying not to burn the dinner! 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.

The Compass Reading

This unique approach combines Astrology and Tarot, weaving the wisdom of the stars into the realm of divination. Through the current cycles that you are experiencing, as described by your natal chart, together with the position of the stars at the time of consultation I can gain a deeper insight into the guidance yielded up by the cards. In this way, you have the option to “co-create” what is happening in your life, for the best outcome. I choose a spread or spreads, depending on your question and what is required. This reading takes place either in person, or via skype/zoom and takes approximately 60 minutes.

Natal Astrology

Natal Consultation may be undertaken for any number of reasons. Some people are merely curious, it is always fascinating to get a deeper insight into one’s personality, and an Astrologer can help to shed a great deal of light into the workings of a person. Some people are looking for answers to questions, and although the Astrologer may well not be able to give clear cut answers, they may be helpful in offering insight into the reasons why you are asking the question and helping you to understand the issues surrounding the question.

Horary Astrology

Horary Astrology, meaning “The Astrology of the Hour” was, up until relatively recently, the most important tool in every astrologers toolbox. Requiring the detailed study of rigorous and sharply defined symbolism, its popularity gradually waned in favour of modern astrological thought, relying on essential principles and a psychological approach. Simply put, Horary is divination using astrology, and is most useful when you have a definite question.


I specialize in readings for those who are undergoing life transitions and aim to empower and guide you through the challenges that you may be encountering at this time. Using a combination of the Quareia Magicians Deck in order to look at the energy that surrounds you at the present moment, together with cards from the Crowley-Harris Thoth deck, I offer guidance to answer your questions. I am fully endorsed by TABI, the Tarot Association of the British Isles.

Moon Mentoring

My “Astrological Mentoring” allows you the facility of connecting with me for a 6 month period, as you travel your “rite of passage”. The process follows the lunar cycles, with a set of “prompts” that are derived from your own natal chart, and which are individually tailored to you. These will be issued at the New Moon, with a 1 hour video link at each Full Moon, to reflect on the work that has been achieved.


I am passionate about learning, and am continuously updating my knowledge base.

Thank you very much for your reading – I very much appreciated your thorough and perceptive interpretation! For better or worse, I tend to see most things in my life as part of an inner journey, so even though I had in mind a new venture into freelance illustration when asking my questions, my real interest and how I interpret the answers is always by default about how it relates to my ‘spiritual journey’. Overall your reading makes a lot of sense to both my immediate project and my life as a whole. It’s helped me to see the need to focus on what I actually want, the tools I already have, as well as to recognize  and  appreciate the work I’ve already done. As such it is grounding as well as encouraging – a great mixture of inspiration and practical advice!

I have been an astrologer for nearly 40 years. Weaving my knowledge of the stars with intuitive tarot techniques, I craft highly personalised guidance for clients who are often negotiating  complex life transitions. In recent years I have rejuvenated my approach through the study of Horary Astrology, finding that the traditional techniques of the ancients have helped me to interpret my knowledge in a whole new way. Considering the uncertainty that we face in todays world, I consider that the integrity of this ancient tradition is an essential tool in giving my clients the guidance they seek.
