Bringing Ideas In Sync With Our Will ~ Tarot for 23 February 2018

Bringing Ideas In Sync With Our Will ~ Tarot for 23 February 2018

The hand of inner wisdom and guidance reaches forth from the rocks to grasp the ancient tree of knowledge. The 6 of Swords is titled Science and illustrates six swords, four pointing upward and two pointing downward suggesting the interaction between knowledge learned in form and the inner knowledge of Spirit. With the majority of the swords pointing upward toward […]

I Don't Care If It Works. Do Something. Do Anything. Protect Our Children.

I Don’t Care If It Works. Do Something. Do Anything. Protect Our Children.

Yeah, I don’t really care anymore what gun advocates believe. Too many of our children have died while they’ve had a field day owning and playing with any number of dangerous weapons. Enough is enough. The founding fathers could never have imagined what we’re dealing with today when they crafted the 2nd Amendment. But then […]

Blessed Be Our Children ~ Transits for 16 February 2018

Blessed Be Our Children ~ Transits for 16 February 2018

I had intended to write up a tarot reading for today, but joy was its premise and I didn’t think anyone was feeling particularly joyful given our recent tragedy. So I’m going to look at astrological transits instead. Pisces is strong today as is Sagittarius and Aquarius, but intuitive and emotional Pisces provides the strongest […]

It's Not About Putting America First. It's About The Safety And Protection Of Our Children. Always.

It’s Not About Putting America First. It’s About The Safety And Protection Of Our Children. Always.

Okay. I’m not sure I can focus enough to write this, but I’m going to try. Yesterday’s shooting in Parkland, Florida has left me shaky and emotional. But however I might feel, it pales in comparison to what the students, staff, and families are feeling right now. Watching cellphone footage was bad enough, but frankly, […]

Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life in Oregon as a cannabis patient is typically non-eventful. Patients actually have amounts that work out well for those who wish to create their own medicines. I’m one such patient. I wrote about my healing with cannabis in my first book, Confessions of a Back Porch Herbalist in which I shared how I healed my severe […]

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 […]

Tarot and Transits for 20 January 2018 ~ Shutdown Edition

Tarot and Transits for 20 January 2018 ~ Shutdown Edition

Prior to the shutdown of the federal government, we asked for some Temperance, instead we got the 9 of Swords and now, like the 2 of Wands, we’re at a standoff. I’d ask what happened, but then the new guy is upset that the whole shutdown thing is affecting his anniversary party at Mar-a-Lago, so it’s really him that happened. He […]

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

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 […]

2018 ~ Runic Influences for the Year Ahead

2018 ~ Runic Influences for the Year Ahead

After doing my Solar Return chart, I thought I’d take a look at the runic influences for the coming year. Next year purports to be transformational for me at least so I wondered if the runes would support that idea. Either way, this runecasting applies to everyone. Instead of viewing the runecasting as a series […]

Catalytic Holidays, Or Finding Joy In These Ridiculous Times ~ Runecasting For 20 December 2017

Catalytic Holidays, Or Finding Joy In These Ridiculous Times ~ Runecasting For 20 December 2017

Tomorrow is Yule and the Winter Solstice. But you never know about holidays. Some folks like them and some folks dread their yearly arrival. I live far enough away from my own loved ones that I can stay home and hide out if I like. Plus, we never know how much snow we’ll get and […]
