The Underground Stream: Esoteric Tarot Revealed

Posted on Feb 25, 2013 in Book reviews, Tarot

The Underground Stream by Christine Payne-TowlerIf, 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 casually on a sofa (although I did take the latter approach occasionally with the result of aching arms)!

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Adjustment

Posted on Jan 24, 2013 in Tarot

Thoth Adjustment Tarot CardContinuing 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 the world is given back to you, whether positive or negative. Everything you think, say or do has an effect and whatever you think, do or say to others will have the same impact on you eventually because, in truth, you are not separate from “the other”.

A new golden age – reading for 2013

Posted on Jan 7, 2013 in Spiritual living, Tarot

9 of Cups in the Thoth Tarot deckWith 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 think this is very important. I believe the future of the human race on our planet hung in the balance for a while with our future undecided, and in the last few years it has really been up to us, our thoughts and our actions as to just how events would unfold (take a look at my previous yearly readings).

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 different indeed.

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.
