Tarot and Astrology by Corrine Kenner

June 26th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

If you’re a Tarot reader interested in learning more about astrology, or an astrologer interested in learning something about Tarot, you should really check out Corrine Kenner’s book Tarot and Astrology.

It takes two unique yet related topics and melds them together with ease. The book is straight-forward, friendly, and packed with information.

Even if you know nothing about astrology, with some understanding of Tarot, you’ll be quickly on your way to creating and interpreting your own chart.

And as the subtitle of the book promises, it will ‘enhance your [Tarot] readings with the wisdom of the zodiac.’ It’s true, it will!

Take a look at the video below to hear Corrine talk about her book with astrologer Nadiya Shah.

Mercury in Leo – Magician Dressed in Strength's Clothing

June 26th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The Magician Dressed as Strength - Mercury in Leo

Magician as Strength

Mercury moves into Leo today and stays there until September 1st.

Looking at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the Magician is wearing Strength’s clothing. He’s still floating his lemniscates, but now he’s wearing a dress.

Mercury in Leo, or the Magician in Strength’s clothing is a time of energetic and maybe even exhilarating communication.

During this cycle, it’s easy to express your ideas with enthusiasm, and you’re encouraged to do so. Don’t be shy, but try not to walk all over anyone else’s sunshine.

Watch out for ego talk, either from yourself or others. Everyone likes a good storyteller, but boasters are less welcome.

Let yourself be inspired and your desires be clear and focused. When innocent passion is directed by an intelligent will, the possibilities are infinite.

Tarot Card of the Day – 6/26/12

#0 The Fool from Georgie's Tarot

0 The Fool

Tuesday, June 26, 2012
#0 – The Fool

This is a great day to take the leap and do something different.  It might seem crazy and you have no idea how it’s going to turn out, or maybe even how you got on this path in the first place, but here you are.  It’s time to make your move and do so without fear.

The Fool card isn’t telling you to be an idiot, but rather to stop double thinking yourself all the time and worrying that every single thing is in order before you can make a move. 

Life isn’t really that logical.  There’s no way to prepare for all eventualities, no matter how smart you are.  Do what you can and let the universe take care of the bigger story.

Moon in Libra – High Priestess in Justice's Clothing

June 26th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess in Justice's Clothing

High Priestess as Justice

The Moon moved into Libra today, and will stay there until Thursday.

Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing Justice’s clothing. She takes on the mantle of the Karmic Decider.

With the High Priestess as Justice, or the Moon in Libra, we might be required to face up to something and decide.

Our emotions will demand respect. If we’ve leaned too far back or forward, we’ll probably find ourselves moving just as dramatically the other way.

It can be a slightly challenging period, perhaps a little manic. But by the time it’s done, something is likely to have been decided upon.

Don’t be alarmed by conflicting emotions. They’re there because you can see both sides. It’s not good enough though to just acknowledge them and walk away.

During this transit you’re being asked to take a stand one way or another. And you’ve got the wisdom and power to do so.

Gaithersburg, Maryland Considering Repeal of Psychic Business Ban

June 25th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

It might soon be legal to open a psychic business in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Last week, the Gaithersburg City Council proposed amendments to the city code that will repeal the present ban on fortune-telling businesses.

They also introduced changes to the city’s zoning laws to establish where such businesses may be located.

Until the zoning amendments are finalized, however, Gaithersburg will retain the right to deny applications for psychic business licenses.

According to the Gaithersburg Patch, Council expects a zoning proposal to be brought before them within the next few months.

#20 Judgment from Georgie's Tarot

#20 Judgment

Monday, June 25, 2012
#20 – Judgment

Most likely, this is an important time.  You’re probably coming to the end of a long phase and are in the process of review. 

Judgment might be a heavy word to use, but that’s likely the situation – you’re judging yourself and your progress to date.  How do you rate yourself?  How are you rating others?   Where do you want to go next?

There’s a strong element of resurrection in this energy.  As the phase you’re in comes to a close, you ready yourself for rebirth.  Listen carefully to what your soul is trying to tell you. What have you learned through these last years? What might you want to try again? What might you want to let go of? The big question is how might you be even more alive going forward?

Enjoy this time for what it is, though it might feel confusing and even a little anxiety-ridden. Soon there will be movement. Take a good look at your past, a good look at your present and envision what you want to do next. What do you want your life to be like tomorrow? It’s up to you to make it happen.

Beyond World with Marcus Katz – Tarot Face To Face

June 24th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Tarot Turn (Reversals) Vol 1 by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin

I just posted an interview the other day with Marcus Katz, the co-director of Tarot Professionals.

This afternoon, we have the good fortune of interviewing him ourselves on Beyond Worlds.

He’ll be talking with us about some of the Tarot reading methods found in his new book Tarot Face to Face, including using reversals, reading for cynics, creating oracular sentences, exquisite corpses, the Dwayne’s Boomerang Spread, and the Literal Lenormand Method.

Katz will also tell us about his other new book, Tarot Turn (Reversals) Vol. 1.

Also co-edited with Tali Goodwin, Tarot Turn is part of a three volume collaborative effort of 140 different Tarot readers from around the world.

Each reader was given a single card and was asked to write a description of how that card interacts with each of the other 77 cards in the deck.

As can be imagined, it was an enormous project and has manifested in some pretty gigantic books. This first volume alone is 569 pages. It features 3,388 pairings of the Major Arcana – all 22 cards, upright and reversed.

It also includes disaffirmations for all 78 cards, spreads, reading techniques, as well as some mini-essays about reversals from people like Barbara Moore and Robert M. Place.

Join Donnaleigh de LaRose and myself to hear more about this incredible Tarot reference work and how to read Tarot Face to Face.

We’ll be live in the chat room, or you can call in at (646) 200-0765 to listen.

Moon in Virgo – High Priestess in the Hermit's Clothing

The High Priestess wearing the Hermit's clothing

High Priestess as Hermit

The Moon moves into Virgo today and will be there until Tuesday.

From a Tarot perspective, you might think of this transit as the High Priestess wearing the Hermit’s clothes. She’s putting on her cowl.

The Moon in Virgo, or High Priestess in the Hermit’s clothing, is a time for practical, quiet reflection. Seeking the advice of an expert, and listening carefully to what they have to say could be worthwhile.

Or maybe someone will be asking you for your advice.

Your home is more important now than the outside world. Start thinking how to make it more practical. You might not be ready to do the work just yet, but this is a great time to plan.

Emotionally, it’s a time of calm. Perfect for listening and reflecting rather than acting out in passion. Take your time. There’s no rush.

Study, organization, contemplation, solitude, emotional self-reflection. Don’t be afraid to be alone right now. There’s lot’s to do on your own.

Four of Wands from Georgie's Tarot

4 of Wands

Gather and celebrate!  It’s a day to enjoy what you’ve been working on.  The project might not yet be finished, but at least you’re on your way. Well done!  You have reason to smile.

Follow your passion and create from the heart. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know how it will all turn out, just keep at it. The hard work’s been paying off, and you can take a moment to enjoy before heading on to the next step.

But don’t forget, you probably aren’t doing all the work yourself.  Share the glory or you’ll be hearing about it later.

One Minute Vacation

June 23rd, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The video below is called One Minute Vacation. It shows a series of 1 second clips from each day of a two month trip Kevin Kelly took to Asia earlier this year.

The video has nothing to do with Tarot, but of course I thought of Tarot when I watched it. The super short clips seemed like cards being flipped in a reading – a new image for each day.

I saw some obvious Tarot symbols flash by, like the Wheel of Fortune, the Hierophant, and the 3 of Cups.

And I thought I caught glimpses of the 10 of Wands, the Ace of Cups, the 6 of Swords, and maybe the Page of Cups as well.

Take a look for yourself and see how many Tarot symbols you can find. Or just watch it and enjoy. It really is a little vacation.
