Express Yourself with an Herb Garden
Date: 2016-04-11   By: Sandra Kynes
While we may think of herbs as unassuming little plants, their importance and use is intertwined with human history. And herb gardening need not be mundane, either—as The Herb Gardener's Essential Guide author Sandra Kynes points out, it can be an exercise in creativity and magic! Herb gardening creates a connection through time that binds us to the earth, the ancestors, and to each other. You'll be amazed that something as simple as an herb can be so powerful in so many ways.
Tarot As a Mirror
Date: 2016-04-05   By: Barbara Moore
Some say tarot reflects back what you think, feel, or believe. Some say that it reflects back what you want to see. Whatever you believe, you can blend these ideas into one process that helps you identify your ideals and your practices so that you can be aware of the distance between those two points. Then you can develop an action plan to close the gap between your ideals and how you live your life. Here, tarot expert Barbara Moore provides a process to do just that.
5 Areas Mindfulness Can Help Relieve Stress & Anxiety
Date: 2016-04-04   By: Erin Byron MA
It is a busy world and most of our lives are full. So full, in fact, that we barely have time to notice how we are living as life hurries by. This sense of disconnected rushing leads to stress and, in time, pervasive anxiety. Mindfulness, or the act of bringing awareness to our thoughts, bodies, and the present moment, is a powerful practice for reducing stress. Here, Erin Byron, MA, co-author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Mindful Living, presents five areas that mindfulness can help us relieve stress and anxiety.
Using the Animal Totem Tarot to Achieve Your Goals
Date: 2016-03-28   By: Leeza Robertson
Once upon a time, we were all part of the earth. The birds, the animals, the plants, the dirt, and us. We were one family, related, bonded, and each holding a thread to the same ancestral story that is life on earth. Throughout the generations, however, we lost that connection. Now, Leeza Robertson, creator of The Animal Totem Tarot, discusses the power of Animal Totems in helping us reconnect with the earth—and achieving our goals.
The Politics of Divinity
Date: 2016-03-21   By: J. A. Kent PhD
For millennia, our culture has been dominated by the masculine and monotheistic religions of the Abrahamic tradition. J.A. Kent, author of the new Goddess and the Shaman, explores the politics of divinity, from gender and history to what it means to let the Goddess lead.
Interpreting Whole Sign and Out-of-Sign Aspects
Date: 2016-03-14   By: Amy Herring
In the map of the sky that is the astrology chart, the positions of the planets are noted by the sign they are in and, more precisely, the degree they inhabit within that sign, each sign being 30° wide. However, because the planets move and their relative position to each other is not fixed like the signs (until we freeze them into place in an astrology chart for a time and place), they can wind up anywhere within the range of 30° of a sign when a chart is calculated. A planetary aspect is therefore defined more specifically by the actual degree distance between two planets. So how are aspects defined? And what do they mean? Amy Herring, author of the new Essential Astrology, explains.
Demeter and Persephone: Sacred Mother, Beloved Daughter
Date: 2016-03-08   By: Katalin Koda
As we approach the Spring Equinox, we feel the warming air and are inspired by the natural beauty of rebirth after winter. The story of Demeter and Persephone powerfully captures the unfolding of the seasons, welcoming in new light. This myth is a tale of the deep connection between mother and daughter and also the story of maidenhood and

How to Begin the Process of Change
Date: 2016-02-29   By: Jenny Mannion
Simply hearing the word "change" can bring up resistance. We are taught from the beginning that change is hard, and we will sometimes resist change with all our might even if we know that what awaits on the other side would be much healthier for us. Knowing this, how do we begin the process of pursuing those goals that require change? Jenny Mannion, author of the new A Short Path to Change, provides 10 tips to get us started.
Chakras: What Would Science Say?
Date: 2016-02-22   By: Cyndi Dale
Chakras are everywhere. They are referenced in yoga and meditation. And, we know a lot about how chakras affect our lives. But how much do we know about the science of chakras? Cyndi Dale, author of the new Llewellyn's Complete Book of Chakras, explains how science explains our chakras.

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
