I now offer tarot readings here on my website, and if you have ventured to the tab that lists my offerings and wondered what all of it means, this post is meant to get to the details of what it all means. This is a clarification of what exactly it is that I offer. The … Continue reading Spreads, spreads, and more spreads
Continuing from my previous post about having courage and a good deal of agility, I went down that route out of a realization that I am often too headstrong for my own good. Determined to achieve a specific goal, or vision in mind, unwilling to relent even when all fingers point the other way. It … Continue reading The Stairway
Recently, I briefly shared that I had created a spread for Ostara. In retrospect I should have given more detail about the spread itself. This is me rectifying that. Believe it or not, I created this spread with a pack of Aleister Crowley's Thoth deck, a spanish edition of the deck I had lying around … Continue reading A spread for a spread
A small well kept garden with little baby buds flowering, peaking out of the earth, ready to greet the sun. Stretching their leaves gracefully and slowly as the sun begins to nurture their skin, and the rains feed them, spurring their growth. It is a slow process that of resurrection. This is what I see … Continue reading Ostara with the 3 of coins
As October wafts onward, the air gets cooler on this (where I live) side of the globe, and as the popular saying goes, one can almost feel the veil between this world and the unseen get thinner. I have briefly put down my varying Tarot de Marseilles expeditions in favor of meditating with Robert Place's … Continue reading Thoughts on a full moon and October
I've been feeling a little out of sync lately and decided today to do a compass spread, I stumbled upon it while perusing the forums in aeclectic.com a few days ago. I liked the spread and wrote it down so I could try it later. Today is later, so here it is: It was a … Continue reading Dailies
Things have been a bit hectic around here these days, especially with the baby. I haven't had time to really sit down and order my thoughts and share my daily draws and spreads. I have been intermittently playing around with the Lenormand. As a literature scholar, or so I consider myself, and theory enthusiast, I … Continue reading An update and the Lenormand
These are the times of dreamy quietude, when beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliancy of the ocean's skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it; and would not willingly remember, that this velvet paw but conceals a remorseless fang. -Moby Dick, Herman Melville Today I was thinking on Moby Dick, because I frequently … Continue reading Moby Dick
Hello, I'm going to keep this short, I feel a little tired. Just wanted to share my full moon spread. It seems the time was propitious to give me a very concrete set of warnings, the cards did not make it a point to spare my feelings. It was refreshing, eye-opening, and straightforward. Certainly, the … Continue reading Full Moon Spread
This is a great post with excellent ideas, correspondences and an excellent source of information for spell work.
The idea of using Tarot in magic(k) is not exactly new. The Aeclectic Tarot Forum has a whole constellation of discussions on this topic, and Kelly-Ann Maddox at the Four Queens did a video on it not too long ago. Here, I want to take a bit of a different tack and talk about how Tarot can be used to help schedule spellwork and ritual.
I personally don’t practice magick,* but I love the theory of it. Every now and then, when I have free time, I’ll wander around the internet and look at different ways of classifying magick, or different theories as to its practice. I’m a nerd at heart.
And one of the big ideas that floats around most magickal practices is the importance of timing. Some people work with the changing of the seasons. Many (and most Wiccans in particular) use the phases of the moon…
