The Crescent Moon and the 2 of Swords: A Beautiful Partnership

Softly the water laps at the shore.  The conscious mind is now stilled in quiet, balanced meditation, turned inward to the breath and posture. Nothing stirs as the Crescent Moon watches and whispers to

The Gathered Soul

About a year and half ago I stared looking for a journal where I could track multiple esoteric leanings.  I wanted to track my daily tarot card, or reading, bio-rhythms, dreams, etc. I found nothing that suited my needs.  So, I started tinkering with Excel

The Woman of Tarot

Last weekend as I was working with the Rider-Waite deck, I started looking at the women in tarot.  Those that are specifically named.  Not The Star, or The World, etc., but the queens of Pentacles, Swords, Wands and Cups, the High Priestess and Empress.  I pulled them all and then

Tarot and Affirmations

This morning I did an exercise outlined in Scott Grossberg’s blog.  Through the exercise, I wrote 5 affirming statements:

Generosity Isn't Always Given, Sometimes It's Received

Today”s card is the 6 of Pentacles reversed.  It”s a card about generosity – and reversed it can signify a need to accept generosity from others, and from ourselves, without judgement.  And not just generosity in the material sense,

Poppers for the Weekend

When I started asking what I need to consider over the weekend, I asked for 3 cards.  As I shuffled, one popped out – the Queen of Pentacles (a card that represents me most often).  Then I shuffled further and another popped out – Temperance reversed.  I asked for just one more card, and very […]
