A Beginner's Guide to Learning Tarot

Most Tarot enthusiasts start their training by purchasing a pack of cards and reading a Tarot book. Then they buy another book and read that too. Afterwards, when they compare notes, they find that each book has a different approach and probably gives slightly different meanings to the cards. Assuming that both books are based on the same style of cards, such as the Rider-Waite deck, the learner is now confused. They say to themselves, 'Which approach should I take?' So they buy another book to see which way to proceed. And they find that this latest book leads them on a new journey, and looks at Tarot from yet another point of view. Tarot websites can provide another unwelcome …

Misconceptions About Psychics

Never having experienced a psychic reading before, your expectations may be skewed due to the enormous amount of misinformation about psychics, astrologers and numerologists, mediums, and other similar practitioners. As in any industry, there are both treacherous and honorable practitioners in the psychic field. We've encountered both, though far more good ones than bad. We recall the first time we consulted with a talented psychic, in the late 1980s. We did not know what to expect. Would she prognosticate doom and gloom? Would she be so vague we'd leave confused and with more questions than when we arrived? Would she see all our faults and criticize us? Fortunately, none of the above transpired, and it was a wonderful, awe-inspiring session …

Numerology: Is It Myth Or Reality

Psychic reading has been in use in order to predict the future since the time immemorial. It is basically a pseudo science that is used to understand the paranormal behavior. The movement of planets, stars and various other heavenly bodies have great influence on our lives. Using this science, the readers try to understand the paranormal behavior which is beyond the understanding of the common man. The psychics are those persons who possess special powers.

Beware the Tarot

Tarot cards have existed in one form or another since early medieval times. Most historians will tell you that Tarot decks first appeared in northern Italy sometime between 1410 and 1430, that they most likely began as extensions of the four-suit playing card decks already in existence, and that they were originally referred to as “carte da trionfi” or “triumph cards.” The oldest extant Tarot card decks, painted by mid-15th century artists, were probably commissioned by the Visconti-Sforza family which ruled Milan at the time. Almost from the beginning, and certainly by 1540, Tarot cards were being used to predict the future. Divination, however, may actually have preceded the invention of the Tarot; a book known as The Oracles of …

Numerology and The New Millennium

Pythagoras is said to have set up schools to study this subject. As a Numerologist I believe that this discipline can be used to analyse important and changing influences that affect us and the world that we live in. It can also be used as an instrument for analysing people’s individual personalities and destinies. Numerology is a positive discipline inasmuch as it supports free will and does not make fatalistic predictions. Instead, it focuses on the prevalent trends in our lives and communicates what actions and attitudes are required in order to achieve happiness and success. We always have a choice. We can choose to adopt the spirit of this advice or we can decide to go our own way. …

Time for An Updated Numerology Reading

Forty years ago, I was a psychic junkie. I had discovered reincarnation and the mesmerizing power of psychics. But, out of the blue, I was turned on to numerology. I was young and starting my career and marriage. I really loved finding my next psychic. One day, someone said numerologist to me. I was a blank. I had no idea what that meant. But I intended to find out. I was working in Dallas. I was told this numerologist was in Fort Worth and her name was Marie Norris. Sounded innocent enough. How do I book a numerology session with her? It was a bit complicated. It seems Miss Norris wasn’t a big fan of the modern use of the …

Numerology Dissects Jack the Ripper

The year was 1888, and in the Whitechapel district of London, England, a person or persons unknown was murdering prostitutes in the most macabre manner. What made the crime unusual was that the perpetrator of these atrocities appeared to possess knowledge of surgical skills and quite possibly belonged to the English upper classes. The police investigation, led by Inspector Frederick Abberline, was making little, if any, headway. Theories concerning the series of murders that took place in that year continue to the present day. One famous hypothesis suggests that the reason for the killings was to cover up the birth of an illegitimate child to a member of the royal family. The Order of Freemasons is often purported to be …

Transmutation of Passions

I recently had lunch with my dear friend Darlene who is a Master Numerologist and one of my favorite people to brainstorm with. We often meet at a wonderful Thai restaurant in Wells, Maine where we plan workshops, discuss world events and simply enjoy being together. I got my anticipated fortune cookie and it said, “The greatest magic is transmuting of passions.” Hmm. That gave me a lot to think about. Interpreting a fortune cookie feels a lot like English Literature classes when my conclusions about a book did not match that of my teacher’s. So, take what fits here and interpret it in another way. In the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams & David Carson, transmutation energy (fire medicine) …

Making the World a Better Place One Single Thread at a Time

Jesus Christ did not always answer a question about life with a religious answer. When they asked him big questions about kingdoms and religions he often pointed them to smaller and more approachable matters like helping one individual at a time. In fact Christ was constantly steering his disciples away from big earth shaking type questions. He pointed them back to the least common denominators such as love, kindness and faithfulness over the smallest responsibilities. He was less concerned with the macrocosmic than the microcosmic solutions to problems in our world. Here are a couple of examples that show how Christ called for people to re-focus on the smaller everyday matters of life. And whosoever shall give to drink unto …

I Used to Look to Fort Worth for A Numerology Reading

Fort Worth, Texas is primarily known as the start of the West in Texas. It’s also known for rodeos, cattle, horses and the Basses. Few know it as the once home of numerology. But I did. During my early years, I discovered psychics and loved the fun of finding what they saw. In that same era, I discovered Marie Norris, the best numerologist Fort Worth ever had. Her father had been an army officer at Ft. Worth, the actual army fort. But she was as far from that world as anyone could be even forty years ago. She said she had studied numerology at Stanford University. I had no way of checking that. But I needed no degree to realize …

Numerology & The Number 11 – What it Means & Why it’s so Challenging

Seeing the number 11 over and over in your daily life can mean many things. It’s possible you have prominent “11” in your comprehensive natal and, or timing charts, which would mean the number 11 is especially important to you. It’s common for people to favor certain numbers, or for certain numbers to mysteriously show up time and again in their lives, without even realizing that the numbers are of great magnitude (i.e., position and, or frequency) in their comprehensive charts. Or, perhaps it could be purely a subconscious attachment to the number 11 for any number of reasons. We’ve written extensively about the phenomenon of seeing the same numbers over and over. 11 is a Master Number, as are …
