Chakra Systems Interlocking…

By Steven Seinberg… When I was just a youngster, and still rising up through the US public school system, whoever was in charge of teaching my class-group its science stuff imparted a mnemonic device to us for learning the colors of the rainbow (or visible spectrum)…and that mnemonic device has always stayed with me. Maybe … More Chakra Systems Interlocking…

Entropy Never Sleeps…

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.” – from “The Second Coming” by William Butler Yeats Our Universe has a tendency toward disorder.

Kabbalah and Tarot

TAROT TIP It’s pretty common knowledge that if you want to, you can mix Astrology into your Tarot practice. They’re two very different systems, but if you settle on some linkages to connect the symbols of one with the symbols of the other, then using them together can actually enrich your practices with both.

Evolutionary Astrology: Past Lives in our Charts…

I can’t say I’ve ever been a pure believer in past life theory.  I mean, I do absolutely believe that consciousness exists in forms we can barely guess at just beyond the walls of linear space and linear time that pen us into this 4-D existence of ours.  Having said that, though, I was still … More Evolutionary Astrology: Past Lives in our Charts…

Morning pages…

Quite a few years ago now, I was put on notice about this book you may have heard of: The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron.  It’s a self-help book designed to enable people with creative impulses to get in touch with their inner artistic selves and become more artistically productive.  Ms. Cameron comes at the … More Morning pages…
