Breaking the Mold of Linear Time

  |   Articles, Reflections

I recently dug my way through the book Tarot and Psychology by Arthur Rosengarten, and there is a chapter in it on linear time vs. “interconnected arising” that literally blew my mind. I have always sensed and believed that time is only linear within our conscious perception of it. Reading tarot has, in fact, taught me that the interconnection between...

Hanged Man tarot card

Card Focus: The Hanged Man

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

Mary K. Greer, who is one of our modern day tarot experts and author to several amazing books, calls the Hanged Man the ultimate reversal card. Because, in most decks, the hanging man in the illustration in its upright position, is actually reversed. I love this explanation of the Hanged Man. It gets right to the lesson at stake when...

Lovers tarot cards

Card Focus: Lovers

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

With my Sun in Gemini, if I go by Golden Dawn astrological correspondences, the Lovers is my soul card. But also, if I add up all the digits of my birthday and year, then reduce to a number under 23 (thus, corresponding to a card of the major arcana), I get 6, which is also the number to the Lovers...

Dreaming Way Tarot The Tower

The Soul Refuses to Compromise

  |   Articles, Reflections

I used to be willing to compromise. In fact, my life was all about compromise. Until a little over one year ago, when the Tower struck in my life and it all fell apart. I then finally decided, enough is enough. It was time to dedicate my life to my soul’s purpose.   With spring in full force and all the beginnings,...

Wheel of Fortune tarot cards

Card Focus: Wheel of Fortune

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

The Wheel of Fortune is one of those cards with such profound, often overlooked wisdom. It is a highly spiritual card, but not in an obvious way. Despite what some might say, I do not believe the Wheel can foretell or warn of anyone’s fortune or ill fate. In fact, its message is precisely the opposite: it’s total chaos out...

The Devil Tarot Card

Card Focus: The Devil

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

The Devil is one of the tarot cards that embodies so many different facets of the human experience I often wish that it was divided into three or four different cards. Especially right now in the world and in this country, I see the dark manifestations of the devil everywhere. (And, yes, Trump and his hate campaign of glory is...

Intentional Dreaming

Getting Started with Intentional Dreaming

  |   Articles, Dreams

At the Gnostic Society here in Los Angeles, I recently attended a lecture on Dreams and Soul Transformation by Dr. Stephan Hoeller. At one point he described dreams as “letters from your soul,” and not paying attention to your dreams as not opening that letter. This resonated with me on a deep level. Dreams can carry powerful messages, that when...

Three of Swords tarot cards

Card Focus: Three of Swords

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

The illustration that accompanies the Three of Swords in many decks that follow the RWS tradition—three swords skewering a bleeding heart—always in some ways baffled me. I get that the three swords do not meet peacefully. And I get the heart-wrenching feeling that is being conveyed by this experience. But it’s the heart itself on the card that feels misdirected....

Four of Cups tarot cards

Card Focus: Four of Cups

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

Continuing my series focusing on specific cards, the Four of Cups is one of those cards that when I read about it in a book, I literally feel myself squirm for all the introverts of the world. Traditional meanings have summed up this card as basically a child pouting in the corner, refusing to receive the gifts offered to him...

7 of Cups tarot cards

Card Focus: Seven of Cups

  |   Articles, Card Meanings

The 7 of Cups is one of those highly frequented cards for me—it shows up all the time in personal readings. Because of this I have grown to understand it quite differently from the explanations given in books, and thought I would share my thoughts. Some books and traditional interpretations of 7 of cups rely solely on the negative “wishful...
