Balancing Will with Reason ~ Tarot for 8 November 2017

Balancing Will with Reason ~ Tarot for 8 November 2017

I’ve been using this particular five-card spread for a while now and I really like it. I’m not sure if it’s out there in the tarot universe as a named spread but I like it nonetheless. The upper three cards represent general influences while the two cards below represent what influences challenge and benefit us. […]

Realizing Our Dreams ~ Tarot for November, 2017

Realizing Our Dreams ~ Tarot for November, 2017

It’s time again for a monthly tarot reading, this time for November. I’m using three cards for each week with an initial card that indicates the overall influence along with a card for what crosses and one for what benefits. The overall numerology of the month is 22, also known as the powerful Master Builder […]

We're Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

We’re Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

So much for humanitarianism. I woke up in time to watch the last half hour of Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC this morning only to hear from Rep. Luis Gutierrez that the situation is worsening in Puerto Rico while the White House believes their response has been a 10 out of 10. Instead of waking […]

Disruption Before Change

Disruption Before Change

An interesting synchronicity occurred with today’s tarot reading. Its overall numerology is three, the same as today itself. 10/10/2017 reduces to 1, 1, 1 which then also becomes three. Wholeness, triple aspects, and unity are among three’s numerological influences. It’s expressed by Mother, Father, and Child and the sense of something greater than before. Rather […]

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

I like to cast runes during Esbat rituals. Whether it’s the Dark Moon or when she’s Full, Esbat rituals offer an opportunity for a variety of magickal workings as well as divinations. I performed this runecasting during Thursday’s Full Blood Moon and drew Thurisaz, Mannaz, and Berkano to see what would be influencing in the coming month. […]

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 […]

In Totality With All

In Totality With All

My husband and I sat out under the willow trees to watch this morning’s solar eclipse. It began in Madras and at our home in Redmond, we were in totality at 10:20 am. I remember as a child in Alaska watching a solar eclipse at my aunt’s house. But it wasn’t like this one. This one […]

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 […]

The Blessed Conduit

The Blessed Conduit

My first love in divination is rune divination and magick. So it’s nice when I can use a runic spread to define a tarot reading. Algiz is the rune I’ve used today and represents protection and a connection with Divine Presence. Known as a guardian rune, its top three branches represent Elemental Air, Fire, and Water […]

Transformation Within

Transformation Within

The 8 of Stones, The Tower, and the King of Wands comprise today’s general tarot influences. The Hanged Man is placed in the position of hidden influence and the 5 of Cups represents the outcome. Hexagrams are attached to both the 8 of Stones and the 5 of Cups involving the concept of the small with the preponderance of the small and […]
