Spring Mysteries: Graces

One fateful day, after Lammas Monologues, hosted by the Aquarian Tabernacle Church, I gave my permission to be cast as a Grace for Spring Mysteries Festival 2017.  Little did I know, how demanding, and how rewarding this role would ultimately prove to be. While I cannot give many details about the journey of Spring Mysteries,…

Tarot lessons in Pop Culture

In the Tarot there are many who feel that the Fool begins his journey new-born and unaware of the dangers they may face. He seems reckless and headstrong because the Fool only acts on instinct. The Fool has no concept of others, only self. I agree with this assertion, though I urge everyone to do…

Get Moving!

Today’s meditation card-draw has to with getting moving, and meditation through dance. A great opportunity to use movement to express excess jittery energy.  Here is a beautiful example of sufi dance meditation. Who knew when we were all spinning in circles as children that we were infact gaining greater connection to the Divine? Ok, some of us knew…

Flowers and Dreams

I greeted today much like any day… slightly bewildered, groaning and wondering where on earth the coffee is… It wasn’t until I was outside, collecting my thoughts smoking and drinking my coffee that I realized I had dreamed last night that my ears were bleeding.

In many decks the wands are represented in a diagonal on the card in question, this diagonal action usually indicates…

Spring Mysteries 2015

Every spring for 30 years the Aquarian Tabernacle Church has held a festival honoring the Mysteries of Eleusis. If you are like me you might be wondering just what ‘Eleusis’ is…. or perhaps you are better educated than I, or have already attended SMF before. I will say the events of Eleusis are…. well elusive….

The day after Judgment

I realized with a little help through one of my inspirations (Leonie Dawson) that really what holds me back is fear. Fear of being too far out there, too much of myself and my struggles, my caustic sense of humor and my childlike sense of wonder always at opposite sides of my own self that…

Oracle decks are not Tarot

There are many tarot decks and oracle decks out there right now. However, they are not one and the same. Tarot decks are 78 card decks that follow roughly the same templates. Some decks will have a suit labeled as coins, and perhaps you are used to seeing pentacles? Again sometimes you will see staves,…
