Calculating Your Numerology Life Path Number

At best, this attempt to link the study of Numerology to an ancient source is a desperate clutch at credibility. At worst, it’s sheer dogma. I have come across a number of sources who decry mainstream religious belief, particularly the Judeo-Christian system. These authors, so called, often point …

Symbolism in Tarot Reading – Blindfolds

One of the most powerful symbolic images reflected within the Tarot is that of the blindfold. Blindfolds are barriers, both literally and emotionally. Symbolically, they refer to one’s level of denial or inability to perceive things as they really are. They can represent a distortion of reality and typically refer to lack of insight.
