Tarot and Numbers

One of the many things I love about Anthony Louis’ Beyond the Basics is his overview of the historic evolution of so many of the facets of tarot. This really helps modern card interpretations make more sense. For example, in his chapter Number Symbolism and the Tarot, his explanation of how the Golden Dawn numerology […]

Timing Techniques

Many people find determining timing with tarot to be challenging. One reason is that the future isn’t set in stone, so timing remains fluid. Any number of actions, decisions, or situations can occur that could affect the timing of, well, anything. And it’s possible that something won’t happen…so trying to determine when it will happen would […]

How the Kings Manage Time

The Kings and Time Management In addition to playing important roles in readings, the court cards can help us learn about ourselves, show us how to shine our brightest, and clue us into weaknesses that might, if unchecked, get in the way of our happiness or success. As a freelance writer juggling many projects, I’m […]

Are You a Querent?

I have been studying the Tarot and giving readings with it for many decades, thousands of readings. I used to give readings at psychic fairs for as many as forty people a day. That can be really exhausting. The Tarot was one of my earliest occult studies. I’ve read hundreds of books on the Tarot. […]

Now, here’s a secret some people don’t want you to know: many forms of divination are just as simple. Let’s look at Tarot. According to some authorities, the Two of […]
