I’m A Tarot Card!

For years, I’ve studied Tarot cards…and now – thanks to the mighty and benevolent Steven Bright of Tiferet Tarot – I am one! Steve has been putting together a new deck that he’s creating called the Fragments of an Illusion Tarot, using photos of real people, and then adding in other images, text, and graphic wizardry […]

Make or Break Cards

Aside from scooping up the out of print Tarot of the Origins, which I’d been coveting for a long time, I haven’t treated myself to a new deck in over a year now. Last week, I ended that streak, though, by picking up Lo Scarabeo’s Epic Tarot. I’ve been sidetracked by various bits of biz […]

As with any of these suggested linkages, there are pros, and there are cons. The Pros. Both symbols describe a vulnerable character surrounded by an armored shell. A human charioteer inside a […]

Astrology/Tarot Mapping: The Lovers

The astrological symbol that you’ll most often find associated with the Lovers card in Tarot is the Sign of Gemini. In a very superficial way, this association makes some sense. That is, The Lovers can conjure thoughts of two people (i.e., the number it takes to tango)…and Gemini also has to do with a pair […]

Astrology/Tarot Mapping: The Hierophant

The most widely used astrological correspondence for the Hierophant card is the Zodiac Sign of Taurus. And this is definitely one of the correspondences that, for me personally, just doesn’t work all that well. On the one end of the pairing, The Hierophant is a spiritual teacher and go-between, someone who – at least in […]
