The Wheel of Fortune

According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking.

Astrologically, The Wheel of Fortune corresponds to Jupiter, Planet of expansion and King of the Gods.

The Hermit

The Hermit (Virgo) corresponds to the Third Eye. The Hermit archetype helps us connect with our inner wisdom through life reviews and acknowledging the lessons of the past. The Hermit then shows us how to shine our light of deep understanding in the world as guides, counsellors and teachers. As you may well have guessed this is also a card of being alone and isolated. The isolation can be self-imposed but this is not always the case. The energetic focus of the Hermit card...

Positive personal development on the level of The Chariot...

The Lovers

Today, I learned the true meaning of The Lovers when meeting the gaze of a young girl of about 11 with learning disability. Her eyes shone brightly, unburdened by discernment and judgment. Like two suns, they burnt with love straight from Source… and I felt naked like Adam in the Garden of Eden when God looked him up after he had tasted the forbidden fruit. This quote by Rumi sums up what the spiritual lesson in The Lovers is all about: “This is love: to fly...

The Hierophant

I’d like to start this post about The Hierophant with his own description of himself (as channelled by Alejandro Jodorowsky): It is through me that the flesh ascends to mind in sublime fireworks. It is through me that the flock of angelic energies descends toward the coldness of matter to dissolve it into waves of magnetic heat. (from The Way of Tarot) If these poetic words from a leader of one of the world’s greatest institutions take you by surprise, perhaps...
