True Tale 11

Spiritual Intimidation In my previous post, I described why I decided to quit a small, Crowley-oriented group from when I lived in the San Diego area: First: One of the leaders attempted to cover up his clear lack of knowledge. There is so much information available today, it is quite impossible to know everything. One […]

True Tales 8 through 10

Delta T and Delta C One of the challenges of being involved in the study of occultism is to find people with similar interests. The pool of occultists interested in studying magick is even smaller. The pool of magickal students who want to practice magick is smaller still. It is true that today you can […]

See Me and Other Llewellyn Authors In Person and Online

As I wrote at the end of my previous post, This coming Saturday, September the 14th, I’ll be giving a workshop for the San Diego Pagan Pride day event. This family friendly (and dog friendly!) day will be held from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at 6th and El Prado/Laurel in beautiful Balboa Park. If you […]

Self-Closing Doors and Gates

In my previous three posts (HERE, HERE, and HERE) I described an easy way to astral project, why astral travel is important and how to do it, and the concept explaining why performing astral magick can be very powerful. In the last post I wrote, “it’s possible for us to prevent ourselves from achieving our […]

Is the Wiccan Rede Ethical?

Modern Paganism embraces a wide variety of spiritual traditions. One of the challenges of these traditions is that in some instances they are not thoroughly considered. An individual tradition may leave out large swathes of concepts and limit themselves to small sections of reality. There is often the worship of deities, the practice of magick, […]

So Right It’s Wrong

Recently, James Ricklef asked several regular users of Tarot how they think giving readings with the cards actually works. He published the answers on his blog in two posts located HERE and HERE. In his posts he begins by sharing his own theory and that of Robin Wood. He also shares the beliefs of Rachel […]

Time to Listen to Your Intuition

Over a decade ago I was feeling frustrated over seeing the way most Westerners thought about Tantra. If you’re like most people, Tantra is “that sex stuff.” Or perhaps you know a bit more about it and thought that it was all about sacred sexuality and extending periods of sexual bliss. In fact, Traditional Tantra […]

Discovering Tarot: Learn From the Old—Create the New

There is more than one mythic history of the Tarot. It’s important to note that by mythic I don’t simply mean that the stories were made up and imaginary. Rather, myths are information conveyed in a story to indicate the importance of something. Aesop’s fables, for example, are myths explaining timeless truths in simple stories. […]

Meditation vs. Meditating — Jesus vs. Astrology

Back on January 3, I posted that I have two preliminary goals for the new year. The first goal was to finish the manuscript for my next book and submit it to Llewellyn for consideration at PantheaCon. I am glad to say that indeed, I accomplished that goal. For a variety of reasons it takes […]

The Problem Is With Your “But”

Many years ago I read the book Meta-talk: How to uncover hidden meanings in what people say by Gerard I. Nierenberg and Henry Calero. The basic concept is sort of like interpreting body language for the use of words. With body language, the position and motions of the body can amplify or refute the words […]
