Sacred Space, Tarot, and Your Magical Practice
Date: 2016-05-02   By: Sasha Graham
Sacred space is the pliable and expansive place where creative possibility exists. Sacred space, like a crossroads, becomes a threshold where multiple possibilities converge. Tarot cards can easily be used as a gateway to this sacred space, the sacred space within ourselves, to achieve our magical goals. Sasha Graham, author of the new 365 Tarot Spells, explains.
The Magical Use of Prayer Beads
Date: 2016-04-25   By: Jean-Louis de Biasi
On the spiritual level, mantras and prayers can be used in the same way; a precise and regular repetition of words that will progressively build an inner core, allowing you to rise to the divine. I am not talking here about hymns or declamatory prayers. Likewise, prayer beads can be used in all spiritual and initiatic traditions to help with this process of prayer and repeition, creating strength with each refrain. Jean-Louis de Biasi, author of the new Magical Use of Prayer Beads, discusses their history and power.
The Future of Money Magic: What Do We Put Under the Candle When Our Currency Goes Digital?
Date: 2016-04-18
The global economy is changing, and we are moving to a new form of money: a completely digital one. Most people will not currently believe it, but such a world is almost here. How does this impact money magick? Gordon White, author of the new Chaos Protocols: Magical Techniques for Navigating the New Economic Reality, explains how we can navigate these changes and how we might even benefit from it.
Understanding the Moon Signs of Others
Date: 2016-04-13   By: David Pond
The sign your Moon was in at your birth describes your habits, comfort zones, the way you respond to your emotional needs, and how you express yourself emotionally. Knowing the Moon sign of others will give you clues as to how to better understand and relate to their emotional needs. In this excerpt from Astrology & Relationships, author David Pond explains the emotional needs of each Moon sign.
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
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
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.

Do you recall the first time you cast a solitary spell? A real spell. Do you remember the moment when you took power into your own hands, lit flickering candles, burned tendrils of incense, called to the corners, created sacred space, and invoked your intention to manifest in the universe? It was memorable, wasn't it? Like a teenager fumbling... read this article
