Spiritual Equality

In a world where so much of what we do and believe, how much of our organizational systems are set up, involves and relies upon the idea that men and women are inherently different in more than biology.  Even in cases where the prevalent patriarchy isn’t in charge, where women take the helm and define […]

Pathfinding

No Truth

The different types of spiritual paths can be divided up a lot of ways, but I think one of the most significant are those with a goal or result and those without.  Some paths promise some kind of reward for achieving something spiritually, either after death or in the form of enlightenment.  Some paths focus […]

Alchemy

Too Much Soul

I got to wondering the other day about how time factors into alchemy, not in the sense of timing various workings, but in the much more general, long term sense.  Why is it that so many alchemists and students of alchemy cling so tightly to the past and reject present-day attempts to approach the subject […]

In Need Of Updating

The frustrating part of established spiritual traditions, even those which don’t quite fit the bill of “organized religion”, is that the prevailing approach to them is to adapt ourselves to their philosophies rather than choose to adapt the ideas themselves.  I think organized religion is largely to blame for this, as it introduces the attitude […]

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 […]

Alchemy

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 […]

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.  […]

Duality and Sexuality

I’m back again, ready to write blog posts again!  But rather than take this time to explain why I took such a long break, I’m just gonna jump right back in. As I have posted before, I’m still working on my feminist tarot deck, and as time goes by I feel more and more resistant […]

Better?

I aspire to evolve, to develop myself through my spiritual pursuits.  But this concept isn’t without its problematic aspects.  Exactly what do we envision when we are told to strive to become a higher or better version of ourselves? Having taken up social justice as a focus, I’ve been having more and more conversations with […]
