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 […]

A Graceful Presence

A Graceful Presence ~ Tarot for 7 Feb 2017

It’s difficult to retain a graceful presence when the so-called new guy is running amok, potentially sending us all off the cliff while he vacations on a golf course after only two weeks in office. Calming our emotions can be difficult during these unsettling times, but as much as we all need to stay calm, […]

Balanced Choice

Balanced Choice ~ Tarot for 24 Jan 2017

Patterns continue in today’s tarot reading from my Morgan-Greer deck. A young woman stands before the water holding two swords crossed in front of her. She is blindfolded, a waxing crescent moon behind her. The 2 of Swords signifies going within, assessing all facts, arriving at a balanced decision. Two nines and two sixes comprise the woman’s […]

Truth as Power

Truth as Power ~ Rune and Tarot for 29 Dec 2016

Speaking truth to power almost is too much these days. The push back that’s experienced is so volatile and abusive that it’s almost not worth it. But if the recent election has told us anything it’s that we cannot give up on expressing our truth, particularly with the destructive changes that are apparently in store. […]
