Sitting Out The Wave ~ December 2017 Tarot

Well, here we are in the final month of 2017. Numerologically, 2017 was a year of new beginnings and unity. Time will tell on the unity aspect but there does seem to be a coming together of sorts. True, it’s a unity found in outrage over what may be happening to all of us but […]

A Change In Perspective ~ Tarot for 27 November 2017

A Change In Perspective ~ Tarot for 27 November 2017

A change in one’s perspective is necessary especially when loving communication is no longer possible. We want to blame everyone else when in truth, the conflict begins within. Decisions regarding others are made, harsh judgments levied, with schisms the result. At some point, when these things keep happening, it makes sense to look inward at […]

Inner Development and the Witch’s Pyramid ~ Tarot for 17 Nov 2017

Witches love correspondences and use them to support magickal workings. We break energies down by their elemental qualities and apply those correspondences to Tarot, astrology, runes, angelic presence, stones, plants, incense, just about anything, really. Today’s tarot reading includes one card from each suit along with one card from the Major Arcana serving as significator […]

We’re experiencing date related energetic alignments that some metaphysical observers refer to as stargates while others view them as angelic numbers. Beginning in October, the alignments occur on 10/10, 11/11, and 12/12. My birthday is in October and this group seems to affect me more than others in that I seem to become more reflective […]

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. […]

Samhain Blessings!

Samhain Blessings!

Blessed Samhain, everyone! My favorite holiday of the year! Three of the most beautiful cards from the Haindl Tarot appear in today’s tarot reading. All from the Major Arcana, each archetype suggests an ancient or foundational influence. Runes and Hebrew glyphs appear at the top of each card while their astrological correspondences appear below in the […]

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 […]
