The Fool At The Helm

The Fool At The Helm

It’s tough being duped, isn’t it? We’ve become a social media nation and now it’s becoming clear that Russia bought ads on Facebook targeting certain voters with ads supporting Trump, Stein, and Sanders. Fake news is just another name for lies and fraud. The easy answer is to blame the media for all of it, […]

Letting Go Of Old Patterns

Letting Go Of Old Patterns

I love the use of black of the Wild Unknown Tarot deck. The artist appears to balance the unknown aspect of Tarot with scenes that stand out drawing the eye to each card’s message. Sometimes I begin with a spread in mind, but normally I lay out cards in whatever pattern that emerges. I like […]

Dear Donald: Now It's The NFL? #TakeAKnee

Dear Donald: Now It’s The NFL? #TakeAKnee

You know, I’m really trying not to write on Sundays unless it’s to work on one of the books I’m currently writing. But then you have to go off on the NFL so here we are again. Donald, we have a First Amendment right in this country to say what we want. If NFL players […]

Allowing And The Conflict Within

Allowing And The Conflict Within

At first blush, today’s tarot cards suggest the balance between authority and compassion or maybe something to do with polarity but there seemed to be more to look at so I added three more cards to give some additional clarity. And now, instead of two cards from the Major Arcana, I have four to contend […]

Beginnings And Endings: Observing The Autumn Equinox

Beginnings And Endings: Observing The Autumn Equinox

The Autumn Equinox is upon us. Also known as Mabon, this is my favorite time of year. It occurs just as we move from Virgo to Libra when light and dark are equal in length. Witch history is an interesting bailiwick because although we make every attempt to figure out who did what along with […]

Toxic People

Toxic people are such a challenge. They get things wrong and yet they proceed anyway. Instead of stopping to understand why things aren’t working out for them, they press on with their own toxic agenda. They become angry with everyone else involved when no one supports them, but they continue nevertheless. It never occurs to […]

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 […]

Polarity In Balance

Polarity In Balance

Balanced polarity is the theme of today’s tarot reading. One card from the Major Arcana along with two Court cards, one from the suit of Pentacles and the other from Swords surround a card from the suit of Cups. Earth, Air, and Water are represented with Fire absent from the reading. The overall numerology is 1 […]

It’s Over. You’re Done.

It’s hard I guess for you to grow up. To continue to act like a child when you don’t get your way. To be so full of yourself that you don’t realize the trail of evidence you leave behind, thus sealing your fate. To let anger drive you on into more and more inappropriate behavior. […]
