My journey through the Forest of Enchantment began early in 2015, when the Llewellyn Art Department suggested that, as I had been illustrating books for Llewellyn for some years, I might like to work on a full tarot deck of 78 paintings. Many years ago, I spent time with the Motherpeace Tarot and the Thoth Tarot (painted by Lady Frieda Harris), and I have always admired the artistry of the cards, but I wouldn't consider myself to be at all fluent in the language of tarot. So, the suggestion that I create a deck percolated for a while, as I considered what I could possibly offer such an awesome project? Then came the idea that I should collaborate with Lunaea Weatherstone, a writer and ...

Between 1912 and 1922, the great German Romantic poet, Rainer Maria Rilke, wrote a series of ten poems dedicated to the one he loved.

I'm a shaman and a mindfulness teacher. You may not think that these two identities are at odds, but I'm here to tell you: they are. The Oxford English Dictionary tells us that a shaman, "is a man or woman who is regarded as having direct access to, and influence in, the spirit world which...empowers them to guide souls, cure illnesses, etc..." Shamans divine—"divine" here in the verb sense of the word. Shamans practice divination, meaning that they receive truth from divinity. Shamans light sacred fires, peering into the dancing flames. They gaze into the fathomless depths of an obsidian disc. Or perhaps they sift through the dregs of a holy brew and channel hidden messages. ...

The Bright Spot of Your Sun Sign
by Kristy Robinett
Sun sign astrology often focuses on the pitfalls of each sun sign. What if, instead of focusing on the most complicated and annoying character traits of each sun sign, we focused on what makes each...
