    Learning Lenormand Reviews – Titania’s Fortune Cards: 36 Fortune Cards and How to Interpret Them by Titania Hardie

    Learning Lenormand Reviews Titania’s Fortune Cards 36 Fortune Cards and How to Interpret Them by Titania Hardie     When I first opened up Titania’s Fortune Cards and got the cards out of their little cardboard container, my first thought was, “How minimalist.” As I flipped through the cards one by one, I didn’t even notice that they were Lenormand Cards until I got to the Clouds card and finally recognized the pattern of the pictures. There are no numbers on these cards and no words. And there are no playing card inserts. There are only pictures. Really bright, colorful, almost surreal pictures. At first, I thought that this would…

    Book Review – The Big Book Of Numerology: The Hidden Meaning of Numbers and Letters by Shirley Blackwell Lawrence

    Book Review The Big Book Of Numerology The Hidden Meaning of Numbers and Letters by Shirley Blackwell Lawrence 288 Pages     You know those Numerology books that give you practical advice on how to use the letters in your name and the numbers in your birth date to figure out the best avenue for your career, your love life and everything else about yourself and people you know and care about? This is not that book. To be sure, that information is embedded in this book – way at the end, and briefly – but before the reader gets to that point, there is so much other information that…

    Book Review – The Weiser Book of Occult Detectives: 13 Stories of Supernatural Sleuthing, Edited & Introduced by Judika Illes

    Book Review The Weiser Book of Occult Detectives 13 Stories of Supernatural Sleuthing Edited & Introduced by Judika Illes 320 Pages     I confess, when I first heard about this book, I thought it was a book about true crime – stories in which crimes had been solved by calling in psychics and other occult professionals. But The Weiser Book of Occult Detectives: 13 Stories of Supernatural Sleuthing is a book of short stories – thirteen of the greatest detective stories ever written. Collected, edited and introduced by Judika Illes, they are an entertaining read for any fan of ghost stories, detective stories or just well-written prose. In the…

    Seeing the Signs

    Review of The Power Deck: The Cards of Wisdom and Guidebook by Lynn V. Andrews     Back in the 1980’s, when I was searching for a way out of my depression and drug addiction, I found what was then called “Women’s Spirituality”. Having been raised Catholic, I was of course well aware of the female aspect in religion – the Virgin Mary and all the various female saints – and I always had a strong devotion to the Holy Mother. However, the Nicene Creed recited at all Masses demanded that I “believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth”, not the Mother of that God,…

    Learning Lenormand

    Review Diana Clark’s Gaelic Lenormand Deck & Companion Guide I received this magical deck several months ago but several issues got in the way of my sitting down and writing a review of it – health issues, family issues – but I have been working with it and using it on a daily basis this entire time and I have to say that I LOVE THIS DECK. Especially now that I’m watching “Outlander” on Netflix – and reading the books by Diana Galbadon – so these cards provide the perfect imagery for where my head is right now. No – you won’t see pictures of the exquisite Caitriona Balfe, who…

    Learning Lenormand

    Dreaming Lenormand I remember when I started learning reading Tarot cards over thirty years ago. I had a deck of Rider-Waite cards and I would lay out one of several spreads on a daily basis – usually a Celtic Cross – but sometimes a Horoscope Spread or a Tree of Life Spread or some other spread I had just read about in a book I had just gotten out from the library. My diary is filled with these readings – some are ridiculously lame – since I obviously had no idea what the cards truly “meant” and I was simply quoting what the “little book” said, trying to fit the…

    Learning Lenormand Reviews – The Fairy Tale Lenormand Deck

    The Fairy Tale Lenormand This is one of the most adorable deck of cards I have ever seen in any form – be it Lenormand, Tarot, Oracle, or just a deck of playing cards! Published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc. (www.usgamesinc.com), with artwork by the very talented Lisa Hunt and with a booklet written by Arwen Lynch, this set of Lenormand cards is sure to delight any level of practitioner. As someone who is still at a beginner’s level (I admit it), I think it would be great for someone who is learning the basics of Lenormand or who is just beyond the basics. And I love the little tin.…

    Book Review – The Numerology Handbook: Uncover your Destiny and Manifest Your Future with the Power of Numbers by Tania Gabrielle

    Book Review The Numerology Handbook Uncover your Destiny and Manifest Your Future with the Power of Numbers by Tania Gabrielle I tend to forget about numerology. I’m not sure why – it’s a main component of such divination methods such as the Tarot and certain Oracle card systems and divining by Dominoes and playing cards – but perhaps that’s why I do forget about it. And although I have divination books that have a chapter about numerology in them and I have notes on numerology in my personal Book of Shadows, this little book, titled The Numerology Handbook: Uncover your Destiny and Manifest Your Future with the Power of Numbers,…

    Book Review – Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad by Witchdoctor Utu

    Book Review Conjuring Harriet “Mama Moses” Tubman and the Spirits of the Underground Railroad by Witchdoctor Utu I know that there are going to be many glowing reviews of this fabulous book, published earlier this year by Weiser Books, an imprint of Red Wheel/Weiser. There is so much in this incredible book – history, biography, herbal knowledge, rituals, occult secrets, Voodoo and Hoodoo and Christianity too! When I had just finished reading the book, I sat and thought about how to write this review. I fell asleep or maybe just into a trance but … I had a dream about Harriet Tubman. In it, she was very old – like…
