The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hermit

Posted by on Mar 21, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hermit

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 9….. The Hermit Tarot card Spiritual work is no different from any other in that at times it is helpful, and even essential, to remove yourself from all the activity and distractions of the world to return more effectively to your centre, and to just “be” with nature and with Source. Whenever I see this card I am often reminded of pilgrimages, and so don’t be surprised if you...

The big idea!

Posted by on Mar 6, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on The big idea!

Towards the end of 2012 and the beginning of this year I was guided to just sit in the void during meditation, to abstain from active techniques and just to be deeply present. It felt like I was allowing space and time for something life-changing and radical to germinate but I had no idea what. One of the things that came up for me personally during this time was my overwhelming sense of responsibility and duty. I never took a gap year when I finished school and so had gone straight from there to further education, to marriage and work and...

The Underground Stream: Esoteric Tarot Revealed

Posted by on Feb 25, 2013 in Book reviews, Tarot | Comments Off on The Underground Stream: Esoteric Tarot Revealed

If, like me, you’re primarily an intuitive Tarot reader and tend to avoid the older decks, this book will open up a whole new avenue of appreciation and interpretation for you. I’ll be honest and say that it’s not the easiest, lightest read in the world. The author, Christine Payne-Towler, is a serious Tarot researcher and scholar of many years and this is apparent immediately just by the size of the book. It looks like a text book and almost demands to be laid open on a desk and pored over intently, not curled up with...

Reclaiming the sacred feminine

Posted by on Feb 12, 2013 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Reclaiming the sacred feminine

For a long time now I have been particularly drawn to the idea and expression of the sacred feminine. I don’t think this is just because I’m a woman; I believe men have equal access to this aspect of themselves as women do to their sacred masculine. But I know that part of the reason for me being here now as a woman is to demonstrate and encourage sacred femininity in action. I think it started (as did my in depth spiritual journey if you’ve seen my About page) with reading Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Adjustment

Posted by on Jan 24, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Adjustment

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 8….. Adjustment Tarot card This card shows the lesson of the Chariot well-learned, in that you have perfected that state of inner calm and centredness so well that you’re literally able to balance on your toes on the tip of a sword! It is at this point that you can begin to understand and work with the idea of karma – universal justice. You recognise that the energy you put out into...

Lost and found – the amazing love and lesson of animals

Posted by on Jan 14, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Lost and found – the amazing love and lesson of animals

My beloved dog Jester suffered an unusual and never quite diagnosed illness at eighteen months old from which he never fully recovered. Incredibly sensitive, we battled with his stomach’s inability to accept and absorb food and made regular returns to the vet to monitor his diet, weight and protein levels. He was loved by all my clients and instinctively gave love and healing to those he felt were most in need. At Halloween, he suffered a particularly bad bout of vomiting and a friend (thank you Judith!) recommended I speak to Meg...

A new golden age – reading for 2013

Posted by on Jan 7, 2013 in Spiritual living, Tarot | Comments Off on A new golden age – reading for 2013

With all the hype surrounding the end of 2012, and with some believing that none of us would even be here to see 2013, I was really interested to see what advice the Tarot would offer us for this new year. The card I drew is the Nine of Cups, a card of happiness and celebration. I’ve always known Spirit has an excellent sense of humour and I think there’s certainly an element here of the universe saying “yes, be thankful and celebrate the fact that the planet and the people on it are still here!” Joking aside, I do...

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...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Lovers

Posted by on Nov 19, 2012 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Lovers

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...
