Tarot 101, My Way – Minor Arcana: The Twos

The number Two represents the Line in Pythagorean number theory; it is the original Point "in extension," which in theory is infinite but in practice joins Point A to Point B. It cycles from one extreme to the other in an oscillating or reciprocal fashion that is symbolized by the swing of a pendulum, briefly … Continue reading Tarot 101, My Way – Minor Arcana: The Twos

Tarology: Enrique Enriquez and the Tarot de Marseille

After watching the documentary Tarology, I've decided that - although I'm probably a quarter-century older than he is - I want to be Enrique Enriquez when I grow up. He finally gave me a sound rationale for why I've staunchly resisted applying esoteric symbols from Qabala and astrology to my study and practice of the Tarot … Continue reading Tarology: Enrique Enriquez and the Tarot de Marseille

Where (and How) is Trish? – A Missing-Person Combo

UPDATE: This news report indicates that crates pulled out of a pond in Grafton, NH are connected to this case, but at this time it isn't clear how. My reading mentions her "staying put," possibly in "a wet place," along with being transported over water. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. https://www.wmur.com/article/crates-pulled-from-grafton-pond-connected-to-missing-woman-police-say/22998453Continue reading Where (and How) is Trish? – A Missing-Person Combo

Tarot 101, My Way – Minor Arcana: An Overview

Any discussion of the Minor Arcana - or "pip" cards in traditional terms - must start with a discussion of numbers. Before there were tarot cards with illustrated scenes, the familiar "small" cards bore only suit emblems in the appropriate quantity, along with a few decorative details. These rather mute cards are still the bane of … Continue reading Tarot 101, My Way – Minor Arcana: An Overview

Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Pentacles Court

The members of the Pentacles court (also called Disks or Coins depending on the deck) are the "planners" of tarot royalty. They are for the most part orderly and regular, not prone to flights of fancy and wasted motion (or for that matter, emotion). Give them a set of rules and they will follow it … Continue reading Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Pentacles Court

Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Swords Court

The members of the Swords court are the "thinkers" of tarot royalty. Their domain includes anything to do with mental pursuits, from education to arguments and legal disputes.  In the simplest terms, they often involve a decision the seeker is facing or a quandary that will soon appear, and can suggest the proper "angle of attack" in confronting … Continue reading Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Swords Court

Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Cups Court

The members of the Cups court are the "emoters" of tarot royalty; I would have said "feelers," but it's too passive a word for the more assertive side of elemental Water (and it seems a little too tritely mystical in a "New-Age-y" way). They may choose to keep their feelings to themselves but are just as likely to … Continue reading Tarot 101, My Way – Court Cards: The Cups Court
