The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Chariot

Posted by on Dec 7, 2012 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Chariot

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 7….. The Chariot Tarot card As we all know, when choice and relationship enters your life as we saw with the Lovers card, it can be very hard to stay focused enough to move forward in one direction, and you may find yourself being pulled all over the place by conflicting demands and invitations from them and from within yourself too.¬† Your soul may want one thing but your ego something very...

Transformations of Myth Through Time

Posted by on Nov 27, 2012 in Book reviews | Comments Off on Transformations of Myth Through Time

This was one of my many fortuitous second-hand finds. I’m lucky to have an endless source of used books as I live just half an hour from Hay-on-Wye, otherwise known as the second-hand book capital of the world! Anyway, I’ve been meaning to read some of Joseph Campbell’s work for a long while, but this is the first of his books to present itself to me so it must be the right time. Campbell was a well-respected writer and lecturer who specialised in comparative mythology and religion. He is probably most well known for his...

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 6….. The Lovers Tarot card Having gained all you can from your mother, father, and spiritual teacher, it’s time for you to venture out on your own and learn to understand and manage yourself in relationship to everything as well as everyone. The Lovers asks you to explore your relationship to people, work, money and more, all from a spiritual perspective. You must learn to see things from...

The Apple and the Thorn

Posted by on Oct 24, 2012 in Book reviews | Comments Off on The Apple and the Thorn

Recently I posted the following entry on Facebook: “Men and women – different yet equal. Let’s celebrate and enjoy the differences instead of averting and fearing them.” Almost immediately afterwards synchronicity steered me to stumble across the book The Apple and the Thorn by Emma Restall Orr and Walter William Melnyk, and to my amazement I found myself reading a beautiful and haunting story that perfectly illustrates that statement. The Apple and the Thorn recounts the arrival of Joseph of Arimathea in Avalon some...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hierophant

Posted by on Oct 22, 2012 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hierophant

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 5….. The Hierophant Tarot card The further along the spiritual path you walk, the more you realise there is to learn, and that’s exactly what the Hierophant tells us. It’s important to remain open to new knowledge and wisdom, retaining a teachable spirit, otherwise you could easily become dogmatic and rigid in your beliefs and history shows where that leads…… This...

How to Recognise Your Intuition

Posted by on Oct 19, 2012 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on How to Recognise Your Intuition

I’m always being asked how you can tell whether a message or thought is coming from your intuition and higher self or whether it’s your ego (your small self) talking. Here’s a video with some useful tips to help you recognise your intuitive voice, but remember practice makes perfect! If you’re interested in developing your intuition and your ability to hear your higher self, you may like my Spiritual Development...

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 4….. The Emperor Tarot card Once you have learned to work with love and your intuition, it’s important to know how to create something practical and effective with them, how to build something real and lasting in the world as this is one of the cards that represents the sacred masculine. The Emperor is the form and action to the Empress‘ inspiration and raw potential. Discipline is...

Fairy tale wisdom

Posted by on Sep 30, 2012 in Book reviews, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Fairy tale wisdom

I’ve always loved fairy tales and could sense in them, even at an early age, a kind of innate magic and significance, but I don’t think it was until my university days that I realised the depth of their wisdom. I chose to study Old French as one of my English literature options (don’t worry, this isn’t going to get too cerebral!) and one of the authors I read was Marie de France and her wonderful 12th century lais – short but vivid narrative poems about knights, maidens and adventure. One of these lais struck me...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Empress

Posted by on Sep 26, 2012 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Empress

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 3….. The Empress Tarot card Armed with the wisdom and the limitless spiritual resources learned from the Priestess, you are ready to extend unconditional love and compassion to all living beings around you as the Great Mother. You can “be” love, the greatest gift of Spirit, as this is one of the cards that represents the sacred feminine. There are several aspects to this giving of...

A General Tarot Spread for Psychic Readings

Posted by on Sep 20, 2012 in Tarot | Comments Off on A General Tarot Spread for Psychic Readings

Here is the general Tarot spread that I use to open readings with my clients. Although I respect the traditional Celtic Cross spread and know many people use it with great success, I never really felt comfortable working with it so I designed this one. I find it gives me a good overall impression of what’s going with the client and where they are physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It shows me the potential for the next twelve months and highlights any problem areas that may need addressing. From here, I usually go on to...
