The Healing Path—A Call of the Soul
Date: 1969-12-31   By: Michele Germain, LCSW
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water … Thus begins the classic nursery rhyme. The hill is a metaphor for the journey of a marriage or non-marital relationship. The pail is where each of them puts his/her longings, hurts and past ...
The Healing Power of Trees
Date: 2004-12-27   By: Joe H. Slate PhD
Have you ever marveled at the power and beauty of trees? As earth’s oldest and largest living things, they are the planet’s natural antennae to the universe. By their very presence, they command our attention and invite our interaction. Like a ...
The Healing Wisdom of Birds: The Spirit of the Dove
Date: 2011-01-17   By: Lesley Morrison
The dove is one of those birds whose imagery seems universal. It is a symbol of hope, purity, and faith, and many people would never think to look any deeper into its complex and ancient past. But why the dove? How does a quiet, ground-feeding little bird come to evoke such potent imagery from culture to culture? Lesley Morrison, author of The Healing Wisdom of Birds, explains the long-standing symbolism of the dove and just why we should be paying attention.
The Hearth Witch in March
Date: 2017-03-13   By: Anna Franklin
Spring is a busy time for the hearth witch. It is time to prepare the ground, plant seeds, and gather the early flowers and greenery of the year for food, remedies, and magical use. In this article, The Hearth Witch's Compendium author Anna Franklin takes us on a morning walk through the English countryside, gathering flowers and plants to use in everything from teas and tinctures to soaks and salads.
The Hebrew Alphabet
Date: 2009-09-29   By: Anna Franklin
The most important symbolic alphabet in Western magical tradition, the Hebrew alphabet entered occultism by way of the Cabala, a system of Jewish mystical thought and practice adopted by many non-Jewish magicians during and after the Renaissance. The Hebrew letters have a more extensive set of symbolic correspondences than any other alphabet used

The High Priestess: Behind the Veil
Date: 2010-09-20   By: Barbara Moore
The High Priestess card is one of the most loved and most mysterious cards in the tarot deck. Its very nature, the way we interpret it, everything about this card suggests the unknowable. And yet we continue to try, as we should, for in the very act of seeking we find something. Perhaps not the answers we hoped for, but something of value. Tarot expert Barbara Moore not only presents some commonly accepted truths about the High Priestess but entertains ideas of her role in the scheme of things.
The Historical Tarot
Date: 2009-08-19   By: Llewellyn
We tend to think of the tarot as a timeless icon, passed down to us unaltered through the ages, but historical research shows us that the tarot is fluid, changing with time as human culture changes. We may think of the Fool as a young traveler, fresh-faced, carefree, a friendly dog springing alongside. But early cards show a Fool who is sometimes
The Horoscope Spread
Date: 2009-07-20   By: Llewellyn
The horoscope spread is a favorite among astrologers. Because the horoscope is a mandala symbolizing the entire life of the individual, the horoscope spread is excellent for a general reading. Starting with the first house of the horoscope, lay the cards in a circle, placing one card in each of the twelve houses. Many readers place a final
The Horseshoe Spread
Date: 2009-07-20   By: Llewellyn
The horseshoe spread is a dramatic way to explore the details of any question or situation—all in a mystical seven-card reading.    1. Past. The circumstances and events that led to the present situation. 2. Present. The current situation. 3. Future. The near future. 4. Self. The subject’s attitudes, thoughts, and feelings about the situation5.

In the Major Arcana of the Tarot, the Fool goes on a journey. This is similar to the Hero's Journey in mythology, and some view the ups and downs of the Major Arcana as the pathway the Fool takes to wisdom. Most people take the "Fool's Journey" several times during their life. If we hold the journey up as a template against our own life, it can... read this article
