You can run, but you can’t hide…(and you maybe can’t even run)…

As I’ve gotten deeper and deeper into the field of Tarot, I’ve come to realize that its practitioners seem to fall into two camps: one camp consists of those who devote themselves almost exclusively to one single deck, while the other is comprised of those who cultivate collections of a much larger number of different … More You can run, but you can’t hide…(and you maybe can’t even run)…

Pick a card…

You likely already know this, but I’ll state it explicitly up front here anyway: sometimes when you start digging into one field of study, your efforts there can cross-pollinate your work in another field, even if those fields aren’t otherwise directly related.  Something like this just happened with me yesterday, and I thought I’d share … More Pick a card…

Deucalion…twice!!

Yes, very often they do.  And one like this — at least in … More “Sure, but what does it actually MEAN?”
