Disruption Before Change

Disruption Before Change

An interesting synchronicity occurred with today’s tarot reading. Its overall numerology is three, the same as today itself. 10/10/2017 reduces to 1, 1, 1 which then also becomes three. Wholeness, triple aspects, and unity are among three’s numerological influences. It’s expressed by Mother, Father, and Child and the sense of something greater than before. Rather […]

The Seven Hermetic Principles Of The Kybalion

The Seven Hermetic Principles Of The Kybalion

The Kybalion was written by the Three Initiates and is a discussion of seven Hermetic principles attributed to Hermes Trismegistus who some believe was actually Thoth. Over the years, I’ve studied various channeled texts including A Course in Miracles, Seth, and the Law of One along with The Book of Enoch, The Emerald Tablets as well as ancient grimoires in an […]

In Joyful Presence With All

In Joyful Presence With All

Wunjo, Ehwaz, and Othala comprise today’s runecasting. Elemental influences are Earth and Water; absent are Fire and Air. Overall, the numerology is six or the sacred layer of Self, governing our emotions, communication, harmony, and balance. I crafted the runes I’m using from a black locust branch from a tree in my backyard. I craft most […]

Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

I prefer the Universal Waite deck to the traditional Rider-Waite because the scenes are more clear. I haven’t used it in a while so I thought I’d bring it out for today’s reading. I wanted to look at influences of both Spirit and form, so I chose a six card spread with three cards above […]

A Balanced Purpose

A Balanced Purpose

I like the number seven. Not because it’s lucky, but because when drawn, it resembles scales to me, striking a balance of some kind. Three on each side of one in the middle, seven can signify the balance of polarities, between inner and outer awareness, and of physical and nonphysical aspects of Self. It’s also […]

In Totality With All

In Totality With All

My husband and I sat out under the willow trees to watch this morning’s solar eclipse. It began in Madras and at our home in Redmond, we were in totality at 10:20 am. I remember as a child in Alaska watching a solar eclipse at my aunt’s house. But it wasn’t like this one. This one […]

The Will And The Path Ahead

I like using non-traditional Tarot decks. They reflect the author’s perceptions and it’s interesting to see how their depictions correspond with traditional interpretations. My favorite is Crowley’s Thoth deck but the one I’m using today, The Wild Unknown Tarot deck, is hand-drawn, full of interesting lines, and replaces people with wildlife and I really like […]

The Blessed Conduit

The Blessed Conduit

My first love in divination is rune divination and magick. So it’s nice when I can use a runic spread to define a tarot reading. Algiz is the rune I’ve used today and represents protection and a connection with Divine Presence. Known as a guardian rune, its top three branches represent Elemental Air, Fire, and Water […]

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

I had intended to do a really nice tarot reading with the 3 of Swords, The World, and the 3 of Cups but when Donald started taunting Lil’ Un with threats of war on social media, I decided that a Thoth reading was better followed by a runecasting. We need to know what we’re facing […]

Transformation Within

Transformation Within

The 8 of Stones, The Tower, and the King of Wands comprise today’s general tarot influences. The Hanged Man is placed in the position of hidden influence and the 5 of Cups represents the outcome. Hexagrams are attached to both the 8 of Stones and the 5 of Cups involving the concept of the small with the preponderance of the small and […]
