Names and Magick
One of the strongest aspects of magick is the use of names. By this I mean the use of one word or phrase to represent something much grander.
For example, if someone were to mention my name, you might think of a blogger, a writer, a workshop leader, a hypnotherapist, an occultist, a magician, a Tantric, a musician, or something else. Perhaps you might think of several of those things. To me, my name is a representation of all of those things and more.
The same is true of designing a word to represent a magickal goal. You don't have to think of "After doing a divination to show a positive outcome of doing a ritual, I'll be doing that planned rite to obtain $1,000 to
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. I wrote the introduction for one book on the subject (The Rabbi's Tarot), use the Tarot as part of the work in my own books, including Modern Magick, and wrote an entire book on the subject, Tarot & Magic. My novel, The Resurrection Murders, includes the use of the Tarot, too. I was awarded the title of Tarot Grandmaster by the American Tarot Association.

An Exciting, Worldwide Webinar
Topic: How to Make and Use Talismans and Amulets
There were some severe technical glitches when I gave this webinar a few weeks ago. As a result, many people who wanted to attend could not sign up and were left out. I am glad to say the problems have now been resolved, but this still prevented many people who had wanted to attend the webinar unable to do so. After talking with the great people at Thelesis Aura we decided two things: first, we decided to give this workshop again so everyone who want to can attend. Second, we’re giving it at a
When I was just a wee little thing (if I was ever such) I was fascinated by Saturday morning cartoons. This was in an era before cartoons were nothing more than advertisements for dolls...I mean "action figures," and commercials for sugary, overly-processed breakfast cereals were actually addressed to parents rather than easily-influenced ijits like myself.
One of the shows I remember through re-runs was the King Leonardo show. This was typical of the era with amazingly bad animation and worse stories. If cartoons were so bad why did I watch them? It kept me busy and let my mother sleep in.
Well, the King Leonardo show was a short-lived series that actually divided its half hour into
