A Sword in One Hand, A Severed Head in the Other: The Goddess Has Returned ~ Tarot for 16 January 2018

The Star, 7 of Wands, and the Queen of Swords comprise today’s tarot reading. Six is the overall numerology suggesting an overall influence of harmony and the sacred. And there is one card from the Major Arcana, one Court card and one small card representing Elemental Water, Fire, and Air or emotions, will, and intellect […]

What More Needs To Happen?

What More Needs To Happen?

What more needs to happen for those who support Donald Trump to finally turn away from this travesty of a human being? I read a comment from him this morning that DACA is “probably dead” and of course, he’s blaming it all on the Democrats, sounding more like a petulant child than anything remotely presidential. […]

Within the Great Mother's Breath

Within the Great Mother’s Breath

In my research over the years into esoteric thought, a primary resource has been H. P. Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine. Along with the works of Alice Bailey, Madame Blavatsky’s critical treatise discusses the Tibetan Book of Dzyan, an ancient esoteric text and provides one of the foundations for theosophical thought. The book itself comprises two volumes and both […]

An Embarrassment of Riches or Just An Embarrassment? ~ Tarot for 11 January 2018

An Embarrassment of Riches or Just An Embarrassment? ~ Tarot for 11 January 2018

I typically try to let the cards tell me where they want me to focus, but given the new guy’s comments today about shithole countries, it occurs to me that this whole situation is either an embarrassment of riches for the Democrats and in turn the country, or it’s simply an embarrassment. I’m certain it […]

Ray Influences for 9 January 2018

Ray Influences for 9 January 2018

Because esoteric astrology is more concerned with a soul-centered focus in lieu of the traditional personality focus of most astrological charts, I’ve found that my attention is drawn more to underlying vibrational influences than to specific planetary ones. I like thinking about foundational influences and my Solar Fire software gives me the ability to look […]

Charting Our Own Course ~ Tarot for 8 January 2018

Charting Our Own Course ~ Tarot for 8 January 2018

The Fool begins his journey, charting his own course, in today’s tarot reading. I’m using my DruidCraft deck, a favorite among non-traditional tarot decks. I like its elemental feeling and with my Druid ancestry, I’m drawn to the depictions. And the notion of beginnings is reinforced by the other two cards of the reading, both […]

Are We Witnessing Elder Abuse?

Are We Witnessing Elder Abuse?

After reading Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury, I really have to ask, are we witnessing elder abuse? If the book is accurate, then my feeling all along that the campaign was nothing more than a lark for Trump was accurate. And I also felt at the time that something about all of it was […]

The Seven Rays Influencing My Natal Chart

The Seven Rays Influencing My Natal Chart

I’ve been exploring esoteric astrology of late in more detail because it incorporates the influence of the Seven Rays and looks at astrology from a soul-centered perspective rather than the typical personality perspective. The very idea that rays of energy emerge from Source comprising the building blocks of the universe and humanity is amazing. I remember […]

Soul Journey ~ Runecasting and Bindrune

Soul Journey ~ Runecasting and Bindrune

Esoteric astrology tells us that we’re in a time where humanity is shifting its focus from personality-based awareness to one that is focused on soul awareness. We are ascending in consciousness emerging into a service-to-others belief structure over a focus on service-to-self. In keeping with the running theme so far of a soul journey, I […]

Awareness and Spiritual Transition ~ Tarot for January 2018

Awareness and Spiritual Transition ~ Tarot for January 2018

Tomorrow brings the new year and for once I’m getting ahead of the game and doing the month’s tarot reading a day early. It’s cold out this morning so I think we’ll skip the walk, at least until later this afternoon. I’m using the Haindl deck again because it offers much more information than typical […]
