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 […]

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 […]

Inner Mastery

The Inner Mastery of Self

We all seek the inner mastery of Self, even if we don’t realize we’re doing so. However, when it’s a focused experience the benefits of that level of self-discipline are maximal. Using the Wild Unknown Tarot deck I drew The High Priestess, The Chariot, and the Daughter of Pentacles to explore what influences contribute to […]

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

I’ve been working with runes for most of my life. Still, I always feel as if I’m beginning anew every time I cast them. I use runes for divination and create bindrunes for use in rune magick. I love Tarot, but runes are my go-to divination tool if I really need to understand or know […]

In Peace Amid The Chaos ~ Tarot for 11 June 2017

I ordered a new Thoth Tarot deck, this one larger than the first one I bought. I typically use a magnifying glass when looking at the cards anyway, but the larger cards provide a better look at Lady Frieda Harris’s interpretations of Crowley’s work. From the colors used to the flow of the cards, her […]

Deception From Energy Vampires: An Empath's Struggle ~ Tarot for 6 June 2017

Deception From Energy Vampires: An Empath’s Struggle ~ Tarot for 6 June 2017

I’ve been experiencing some panic attacks lately due to the antics of a handful of manipulative people. It’s one of the downsides of being an empath and has nothing to do with any fear on my part. It’s just an empathic awareness that becomes so overwhelming that panic results. When people seek to deceive, I experience their […]

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Sometimes we become scattered, each one of us off on our own path, unable to come together in unity with others. And yet we instinctively know that together we can accomplish far more than we can alone. Even when we have a clear responsibility to each other, we still find it difficult to come together […]

Micromanaging The Impossible

Tunnel Vision: An Empath’s Sanctuary

Tunnel vision is traditionally thought to be a hindrance, but for an empath or other sensitive humans, it can be our sanctuary. Empaths have all sorts of strategies when coping with uncomfortable energy and creating a tunnel is one such strategy. A tunnel is visualized providing a safe space from which to either exist or […]

Finding Our Inner Sun ~ Tarot for 7 May 2017

Finding Our Inner Sun ~ Tarot for 7 May 2017

I love The Sun card in the Thoth tarot. Its rays spiral outward overtop an egg-shaped orb surrounded by twelve astrological symbols. Two winged cherubs dance in complete joy at humanity’s awakening and rebirth. Clarity, success, happiness, and freedom are among The Sun’s influences. The 19th card from the Major Arcana, The Sun suggests expansion […]

A Circle of Protection To Bind Their Fate

A Circle Of Protection To Bind Their Fate

Protection can take many forms. It can be defensive or offensive in nature as with martial arts, or it can be born of inner awareness. Rune magick is a method of bringing runic influences together in sigil form for a specific purpose. It can be divination-oriented, or it can bring about a change of some […]
