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 […]

Balance and Choice ~ Tarot for 18 January 2018

Balance and Choice ~ Tarot for 18 January 2018

So we have an interesting synchronicity in today’s tarot reading using the Wild Unknown Tarot deck. I’ve been using a bi-level spread that has three overall influence cards on the upper level and two cards on the lower that indicate what challenges and supports us and today, an overall numerology of 11, the Master number […]

What Determines Our Experience? ~ Tarot for 12 December 2017

What Determines Our Experience? ~ Tarot for 12 December 2017

Earth, Air, and Water are influencing in today’s tarot reading with an overall numerology of eleven or the Master number for illumination. Odd numbered cards are present with two threes and one five suggesting a catalytic change is occurring as we begin in balance and then things appear to go sideways from there. Beginning with […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Arousing of Goddess Presence ~ Tarot for 14 April 2017

The Arousing of Goddess Presence ~ Tarot for 14 April 2017

My maternal grandmother, Bridget Murphy, was from County Kerry in Ireland. She was Roman Catholic and no doubt named for Saint Brigid. But before this co-opting by the Roman Catholic Church occurred, Brigid was considered a Celtic Goddess. And she appears in the hidden influence position of today’s Haindl tarot reading. Goddesses and witches go hand […]

The Conflict Within ~ Tarot for 2 March 2017

The Conflict Within ~ Tarot for 2 March 2017

The conflict within is reflected in today’s tarot reading. We can interpret Court cards as the individuals represented or their qualities therein. In today’s reading, it feels more like qualities than reflecting specific individuals. The overall numerology is eleven or the Master number for illumination and the elements represented are Earth, Air, and Fire. I […]

The Nonresistance Found Between Initiation and Retreat ~ Tarot for 22 Feb 2017

The Fool, The Hermit, and the Princess of Wands comprise today’s tarot reading dealing with initiation, retreat, and nonresistance. The Fool represents our creative potential, infinite and without expectation. Androgynous and innocent, The Fool as initiate begins the great work of life in physical form. From Lon Milo DuQuette: In essence, there are not really […]

Synthesis and Reawakening ~ Tarot for 20 Feb 2017

Synthesis and Reawakening ~ Tarot for 20 Feb 2017

Synthesis of hearts and minds cannot be imposed but instead achieved through quiet reflection. Negative thoughts can have a destructive effect upon our emotions. Channels we create by repeatedly visiting past issues become our present reality affecting our peace of mind which we inevitably visit upon others. Finding harmony within extends the same without and stepping […]
