Month: April 2018


Hey, Tarot readers…

Do you ever have one of those readings where it’s not until after they’re long gone that you suddenly realize there was meaning there you missed?  And they’re not someone you know so you can’t track them down and tell them about it…. Bummer.


Becoming Your Best Self

The difference between evolution and self-evolution is that, to some extent, you can shape and direct your self-evolution.  The whole point is that you don’t have to be or to become the person the forces around you would conspire to create on their own.  You can let your life experience make you what you are, […]


Pen to Paper

I don’t talk about my coloring books here much, but it’s actually one of the things which takes up a lot of my time.  Turning out a 30-page coloring book each month is a challenge, to say the least.  But there’s something zen about drawing all those designs, and people do still really get intrigued […]


Why Should the Feminine be Sacred?

There’s a lot of talk about the sacred feminine in the pagan circles I run beside, and I have to admit I’m pretty conflicted about it.  Yes, there is far too much sacred masculine in the world, and in the sense that we need the sacred feminine to bring balance I absolutely embrace it.  In […]


Spiritual Questions

I’ve written a lot in the past about spiritual pathfinding, or figuring out what the best tradition or practice is for yourself.  While I’d definitely categorize some spiritual beliefs and practices as detrimental either to the individual or to society at large, for the most part I believe that people should find the best path […]


What’s Left

It’s come to my attention recently that, as a side effect of my life going the way it has over the past couple of years, I almost completely gave up regular practice of anything spiritual.  It wasn’t intentional, though I always kind of assumed those things I did with even small amounts of regularity were […]


Becoming the Change Agent

When I tell people that I’m an alchemist or a student of alchemy, I always have to elaborate further.  And I think for the most part people are less interested in what alchemy is about than what I do with it. Ultimately, what I do with it is think a lot about the nature of […]


About my hiatus…

I’ll be honest, I struggle with keeping up routines.  Not the actual keeping up part, so much, at least no more than anyone else.  But once I’ve mentally committed to a routine, the inevitable point at which that routine gets disturbed or derailed also inevitably results in me feeling guilty over perceived failure.  The only […]

Tarot Reading

Sample Tarot Spread: Two of Pentacles, Queen of Swords, Seven of Cups

I worked with tarot for a long time before I finally figured out the key to doing a good reading.  You can know all the card meanings really well, but what really makes a reading is how the cards relate to each other to paint a whole picture.  I believe that all the cards in […]


Tarot as Life Coach

I’m a tarot reader on a professional level now (in the sense that I now do it to generate income rather than just doing it for friends) and though I’ve talked some about the tarot deck I’m working on I’ve not really talked about my approach to tarot.  At least not that I can remember.  […]
