Tarot Is Totally Normal

I’ve been reading tarot cards for almost 30 years. And while I’ve never had anyone NOT want their cards read, I have had to do a lot of explaining about what tarot cards are and what they do. People often seem nervous— or even scared —for some reason, so I want to explain why this response is not warranted in this article. Tarot cards are really just as normal as dream interpretation. I like to start the explanation by sharing that Dr. Carl Jung (founder of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, shadow work, archetypes, the collective unconscious), reported opening his client therapy sessions with a tarot card reading. That makes perfect sense to me. While he was a medically trained professional, …

This article is about making a do-it-yourself (D-I-Y) pendulum for dowsing. If …

A General Look at Alchemy Part 4

Steps in Alchemy Every spiritual system has its steps or phases of development. The Qabalist has his guide in the fruits and the paths of the “Tree of Life.” Mahayana Buddhism teaches its adherents the various “bhumis,” or “grounds” that has to be passed; other traditions such as Sufism and Yoga similarly have designated the rungs of the spiritual ladder. The 33 degrees of Freemasonry has its prototype in the vetebrae of the human spine. Kundalini is supposed to climb 33 rungs before she is crowned in the sahasrara chakra. The Patriarch Jacob was shown in a vision how to climb that spiritual ladder. In Alchemy, teachings differ as to the number of stages required; some adepts propound 5, 7, …
