The Awareness of Water…

By Jessica Lee… Blogging is weird, especially when I don’t like talking about myself. It isn’t something that comes naturally to me, I am more of the observer than the speaker. But, I also want to get out what I am feeling, because I know a lot of people right now are having some of … More The Awareness of Water…

Tarot Tip: Reading Space

Obviously, it’s not always possible to trick out a given area before you get busy with your cards. For example, if you’re reading for someone in a coffee shop, you can’t really violate local fire codes by setting up handfuls of candles and incense, and you can’t demand that the local populace shut its collective … More Tarot Tip: Reading Space

Tarot: the Suit of Cups

The Suit of Cups in Tarot captures our time spent on the emotional plane of life.

Astrology 101: Intro to the Signs of the Zodiac

At one point in our history, the majority opinion was that the Sun orbits the Earth.

The Four Elements: Links between Tarot and Astrology

When it comes to metaphysical disciplines, I’m a huge fan of Tarot and Astrology. Both are rich, fascinating, and deep as fractals, and they each provide their adherents with methods for peering into the very fabric of reality. However, beyond those overall similarities, the two are extremely different systems. One thing they do share, though, … More The Four Elements: Links between Tarot and Astrology

5 Reasons to Love The Hanged Man

Not too long ago, I attended a Tarot gathering here in Los Angeles. At one point during the meeting, I happened to mention to the group that I personally love the Hanged Man card.
