#TarotDaily – Ace of Cups Rx + King of Pentacles (Guardian)

TarotHunter’s Salt Rounds: What emotional baggage from your past lingers? It’s preventing you from a fresh start and manifesting the fulfilling, prosperous life you desire. You keep repeating the same mistakes in your relationships. You spiral in and out but learn little and don’t progress to the next level. If you think your perfect partner…

#TarotDaily – 5 of Coins + 4 of Swords (Grand Luxe)

Tarot Hunter’s Silver Bullets: Focus on the help and support necessary to provide aid to those in need; give the excessive verbiage a rest. Hold out your hand if you need assistance. People can’t help if they’re not aware of the need. They also tend to relax their judgementalness in times of crisis. Although logic…

Our own mythic journeys

I was pondering stuff the other day (okay I had time on my hands and my brain was just rambling on) after thinking about some of the masks I wear and the burlesque act I can put on for company. ┬áThat made me think about how I see myself as the star of my own…

Family Wyrd – when weirdness is generational

I recently completed an inner labyrinth journey using the Majors and Aces from the Dark Goddess Tarot. It was very transformative and magical and left me very excited to continue. So I have decided to work with Runes. I’ve dabbled in them for many years but have rarely focused on them in a more serious,…

Wheel of Change Tower

Wheel of Change Tarot created by Alexandra Gennetti Published by Destiny Books, 1997 ISBN #0-89281-609-0 The Book Says: In a reading, this card represents a loss of structure – perhaps a straight-forward physical loss, such as losing one’s job or home, or a more complex emotional loss, such as feeling of being misplaced or terribly…

Learning through the pain

I have spent a lot of time over the last few years caring for my elderly, ailing mother-in-law. I have often written about how frustrated and trapped I feel in this situation but the last few days I’ve been looking at it from a different perspective. I’ve been considering what I’ve learned through this experience…

What annoying TV characters have taught me.

Have you ever hated, I mean seriously hated a fictional character? I have. Recently I’ve been watching past seasons of The Walking Dead and I realized that I really detest the Andrea character. I find her arrogant, completely lacking in insight or intuition, and gullible. She refuses to participate in anything resembling “women’s work” (which…

Hierophantic Spirituality

Orthodoxy & fundamentalism scare me. Organized religion sends me running for the front door. There is nothing inherently wrong with believing that your way is the “right” way. In fact I can admire that kind of dedication. The problem arises when you also become convinced that your “right” way is the only way and everyone…

Envy, greed & lust – sins for a 21st Century Devil

For some reason the other day I found myself pondering the sin of envy. I’m not really big on thinking about sins but the more I thought about it the more convinced I became that envy might just be the worst of the batch. When I think of the acts that envy has caused individuals…

When abuse transforms into self-abuse

Yesterday my daily cards pulled from the Dance of life Tarot were the 3 of Health Rx and 8 of Relationships. Reading the companion book I was struck by the author’s notes about healthy sexuality (the 3 of Health) and abusive behavior (8 of Relationships). It made me stop and seriously examine my attitudes towards…
