    By Pagan Hands

    Break; break from the preachers of despair, join the liquidations of masses that travel electric around space, chiming in unison about lost quatrains. Their spiritual urgency created by a primordial light where sanctuaries of prophesies linger in spirals of white, Sabbath moon, tree of life. Break; break from the remorse of dawn, the stain of guilt that makes clock hands stick with savage servility behind star drifts of forgotten connections. You’re my beautiful ransom in this bubble of metaphysics that makes my heart beat faster and faster with the simple devotion of your manic passion. Break; break from those that hate, slithering as eels, inside the grief of your soul.…

    Oracles & Omens

    I recently had someone contact me via email requesting that I do a tarot reading for her.  I’ve never met her and had no idea what her current situation was.  I sat with a notepad, my favorite deck and a flickering candle.  I felt that the reading connected totally and the cards were making perfect sense, like they were falling into place.  Sometimes when I do a reading I get in the “zone” and just know that the message is coming through loud and clear.  After finishing up I typed what I had written and sent the reading to the inquirer feeling rather accomplished.  Within a day of receiving the…
