Leopardskin Jasper: the Animal Spirit Stone

I’ve written BEFORE about how when I sleep with a piece of Leopardskin Jasper under my pillow – like the piece shown here – I very often end up having dreams about animals. Two nights ago, I slept with this very same piece under my pillow…but I had no dreams that night about much of … More Leopardskin Jasper: the Animal Spirit Stone

Astrology, Past Lives, and Reincarnation – Part 3

In my PREVIOUS POST, and also in the POST BEFORE THAT ONE, I got into some thoughts on how it’s possible to use Astrology to harvest some information about past lives that you may have led in times now departed. I was mostly summarizing some of the different indicators that astrologers use to get ideas … More Astrology, Past Lives, and Reincarnation – Part 3

Tarot Card Flash Mob

TAROT CARD FLASH MOB! I was holding forth recently about how it can be very illuminating to keep watch on cards that appear a lot for you across multiple readings in a short period of time (“stalker cards”). I also mentioned what I dubbed “MIA cards” – the ones that seem to be avoiding you … More Tarot Card Flash Mob

Tarot in the “Real World”

So last night was the last class session for this round of the Tarot Toolkit online course that I’ve been co-teaching with Vickie Wilson of Eternal Athena Tarot.

Tarot at Sunrise…

Watson and Francis Crick – published their discovery … More Astrology is in our DNA…

Anagram-Birthday!

I haven’t been shy about discussing my birthday of late, it seems.  This isn’t due to rampant egocentrism, and it’s also not meant as a huge scattering of hints that everyone should begin shopping now for when the big event next rolls around again, toward the homestretch of 2014 — it’s just been coming up … More Anagram-Birthday!

Halloween synchronicity…

I’ll keep this post short, as I seem to be battling a case of strep throat, and will be off to the doc’s soon to hopefully procure some greater medical firepower than I can gain access to just on my own… Meanwhile, though, I wanted to relate some odd synchronicities that have occurred for me … More Halloween synchronicity…
