Fortune Telling – the dance

June 30th, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

Here’s another Tarot Kickstarter Project, but this time it’s not a deck. It’s a dance show called Fortune Telling by the Long Beach, California dance company, RhetOracle.

Fortune Telling will be the company’s 6th full-length show. It features 10 new works, all inspired by the imagery of the Rider Waite Smith deck.

The performance will be structured as a Tarot reading with seven different choreographers each creating a dance based on a particular card.

The cards they’ll explore include the Magician and the Knight of Wands reversed, the Fool, Death, the 8 of Swords, the Hanged Man, and Judgment.

The show looks really interesting. I hope they get the support they need.

Take a look at the video below to see what you think. And for more information, visit the Fortune Telling project page.

Moon in Sagittarius – High Priestess in Temperance's Clothing

June 30th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess dressed in Temperance's Clothing

High Priestess as Temperance

The Moon moves into Sagittarius today and will be there until Monday.

Looking at it through the eyes of the Tarot, you can describe this transit as being like the High Priestess wearing Temperance’s clothing. She’s dressed like an angel.

The Moon in Sagittarius, or High Priestess in Temperance’s clothing, indicates a time when intellect, practicality, emotions and passion can work together in relative ease.

What’s normally only an idea might find its way to becoming real. Even-tempered inspiration and emotional playfulness can create what look like miracles.

Take this time to bring your emotions in line with your passions. And play with your most serious ideas. It’s in combining the unexpected that you’ll likely find gold.

#3 The Empress from Georgie's Tarot

#3 The Empress

#3 – The Empress

Creation and the celebration of the senses are highlighted today.  Art, food, music – anything that inspires our physical and emotional selves will inspire you and be well worth the time.

Nurture yourself and others.  It’ll probably be hard not to.  Nurturance isn’t just a luxury.  You need to maintain and even increase your strength in order to create what you’ve been working on. Eat delicious, healthy foods, surround yourself with beauty, take warm, aromatic baths . . . it’s all part of the Empress’ path to creation.

If you’ve been dealing with issues surrounding motherhood, women, or femininity in general, this would be a great day to take a closer look.  There’s wonderful energy now to help you resolve issues you might have thought irresolvable.

Art in the Hermetic Tradition – some photos

June 29th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

It’s taken me a few a weeks to get these pictures posted, but here are some shots from the Art in the Hermetic Tradition show presented by the Hermit’s Lamp.

It was a really fun opening night with good people, excellent art, magical discussions, and strawberries. We couldn’t have asked for more.

And of course Ivan Minsloff’s and my Hermit made his debut. He was well received and felt right at home in a shop dedicated to his light.

Opening night is long gone now, but the show is still hanging until July 28th.

If you’re in Toronto, get on over to 398 Vaughn Road to see it. And you can stock up on all your magic supplies while you’re there.

You might even want to get a limited edition print of the Hermit for yourself.

#19 – The Sun

You’ve made it!  Enjoy!  It feels great to be alive.  After the long journey you’ve finally managed to get to the other side of the night.

There’s no need to be shy – express yourself and let everyone see you smile.

You have confidence now and boundaries no longer pen you in.  Creativity carries you forward as if in a dream.

Focus your imagination and you can manifest what you will.  Be open, free and alive.

Let’s see you shine!

The Book of Knowing

June 28th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

This Kickstarter project is for a playing card deck rather than for Tarot, but Tarot or not, if you like reading cards with beautiful pictures on them, check out The Book of Knowing.

Ana Cortez and her late father CJ Freeman were the creators of the now out of print Oracle Playing Card Deck. Though the name describes what it is, it hardly describes how absolutely gorgeous the cards are.

What makes that deck so stunning is the artwork of CJ Freeman. And though Freeman passed in 2010, his work is very much alive.

Using the images from large oil paintings her father created over 35 years ago, Cortez would like to create another deck of 54 cards – The Book of Knowing.

The paintings have been in storage for years and it’s about time they meet the world.

Take a look at the video below to hear Cortez talk about the project and to see some of the artwork. And visit her Kickstarter page to see what gifts she’s offering to those who donate.

If you’re interested in the art, some of the originals are on sale at her site.

Moon in Scorpio – High Priestess in Death's Clothing

June 28th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

The High Priestess in Death's Clothes

The moon moves into Scorpio today and stays there until Saturday.

If you translate this transit into the Tarot, you could say that the High Priestess is dressed as Death. She’s in the midst of a great transformation.

The Moon in Scorpio, or High Priestess in Death’s clothing, suggests a time when feelings run deep. The ability to end relationships that don’t work, or release stagnant emotions is accentuated.

If there’s a situation in your life that’s nearing its completion, especially if it’s emotional or relationship-oriented, this might be a good time to let it go. At least explore it with emotional clarity.

This isn’t a time to be afraid, but rather a time to face your fears with equanimity and intelligence.

You’ve got what it takes. Don’t back down from the scary stuff.

#7 The Chariot from Georgie's Tarot

#7 – The Chariot

Today you’ll likely see some movement. The Chariot is the card of change, the card that takes you places.  Having finally determined the direction you’d like to go, now is the time to get cracking and go there.

Changing jobs, moving house or some sort of travel are the larger manifestations of the Chariot energy.  Sometimes though, it might bring no more than a strong desire to redecorate your living room or go for a long drive.

However it plays out, try not to give up if the going gets a little tough.  More often then not, just sticking it out and playing for real is all it takes to ensure victory.  You’ve come this far already, why would you give up now?

Fool Around the World

June 27th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

#0 The Fool from the Smith Waite Tarot

In Tarot, the Fool is commonly numbered zero and is most often regarded as the first card in the Major Arcana.

He can represent new beginnings, setting out on a journey, and/or just enjoying oneself without inhibition.

#21 The World from the Smith Waite Tarot

The World card on the other hand, is typically numbered 21, and is found at the end of the Major Arcana.

As such, it reflects completion, accomplishment, and the unity of the whole.

By the time we get to the World in Tarot, we’ve done a full cycle and are ready to start again.

The video below represents the second time round the world for Matt Harding who was a sensation back in 2008 for dancing around the globe.

He’s back with a new installment and it looks like this Fool has got the whole World dancing again …

3 of Cups

Celebrate with enthusiasm!  Today is for fun and sharing. Friends are at the forefront, especially the ladies in your life.

Good times, good friends, good drink – it could be a pretty excellent day.  Don’t be afraid to be happy and remember to let people know how much you like them.

Take delight in music, poetry, painting – this is a time of inspiration and creativity.  Social interaction with others will be invigorating and fruitful. 

Let yourself get carried away by laughter and joy.  Seek out the beautiful within yourself and those around you.  You won’t be disappointed if you do.
