Self-Imposed Cruelty And The Gift of Spirit

Self-Imposed Cruelty And The Gift of Spirit

Something compelled me to use my Thoth deck today and wouldn’t you know it, four Major Arcana cards show up. The fifth card is in the position of challenge and is titled Cruelty. So there you go. Soul influences abound. An overall numerology agrees with the Master Builder number 22 focusing on cosmic law and […]

As The Mother Wolf Rises

A lunar eclipse occurred this morning which I confess that I slept through. Since I’m beginning the intepretation of this tarot reading before it gets dark and the Full Super Moon in Leo rises, I’ll include a picture from last night’s Maiden Moon in the unlikely event I finish while it’s still light. Tonight’s full […]

Collective Abundance

Collective Abundance

Whenever I use my Haindl Tarot deck, I have the opportunity to explore other divination systems as well because Haindl includes Hebrew glyphs, runes, and hexagrams or guas from the IChing on his cards. Abundance is the gua reference from the IChing providing the primary influence of the 6 of Stones, however, with the presence of Justice and The Empress, instead of material […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

The Journey of Experience ~ Tarot for 22 December 2017

The Journey of Experience ~ Tarot for 22 December 2017

Appearing on each card, bubbles abound throughout today’s tarot reading signifying grace, hope, and inspiration. Two cards from the Major Arcana, The Universe and The High Priestess, surround the 6 of Cups representing Earth and Water and have an overall numerology of eleven, or the Master number for illumination and our connection to the subconscious […]

Energetic Alignments ~ Tarot for 14 November 2017

Energetic Alignments ~ Tarot for 14 November 2017

We’re experiencing date related energetic alignments that some metaphysical observers refer to as stargates while others view them as angelic numbers. Beginning in October, the alignments occur on 10/10, 11/11, and 12/12. My birthday is in October and this group seems to affect me more than others in that I seem to become more reflective […]
