    She Who is All – Goddesses & The Divine Female

    Mira Bai/MiraBai (1498-1546 CE)   (Image Credit: learnreligion.com)   Mirabai, also known as Meera, is a Bhakti poet and mystic from India. She is the central poet of the Bhakti movement, a path of spirituality that focuses on a personal love for the Divine, and that one is able to have direct access to the Divine through this intense devotion. She became a symbol of the suffering and persecution of her people, of all castes. She was born into the Rajput aristocracy. Legend has it that when she was a mere four-year old, she and her mother witnessed a wedding procession. She seriously looked at her mother and asked who…

    Learning Lenormand

    Using Your Pendulum With Your Lenormand Cards I’ve been doing this for a while now. It came to me when I first laid out the all the cards for a Grand Tableau and I thought – gee, what if I used my pendulum to pick out the most important cards? But I didn’t do that for a long time because – ya know – I was still learning. But I’ve been stuck – really stuck – for what seems like ages. I think a big part of that is that the Lenormand is my “second language” – so to speak – the Tarot is my first language – and I’m…

    Dreaming: A Vital Aspect of Intelligence

      There is a world behind this world. The old cultures used to be in constant conversation with it through the sacred practices of storytelling, dreaming, ceremony, and song. They invited the Otherworld to visit them, to transmit its wisdom to them, so that they might be guided by ancient momentum. But as we succumbed to the spell of rationalism, the living bridge between worlds fell into disrepair. As fewer made the journey…we forgot how to find the Otherworld…Though we often think of materialism as the drive to consume, purchase, and accumulate stuff, these are really just the symptoms of an underpinning rationalist belief that nothing exists beyond the physical…

    Tarot Talk

    Comparing 3s and the Tower     Many Tarot cards can seem similar enough to each other that interpreting them when they both show up in a spread can be challenging. One way to achieve a deeper understanding of a card is to compare it to another card. This month we will compare a Minor Arcana card, the 3 of Swords, with a Major Arcana card, The Tower. We will explore similarities between these two cards, and then we will look at the differences. I will be using card images from the Rider Tarot Deck for this analysis. First, the similarities. The basic messages or interpretations of these two cards…

    Witch & Popcorn The Original

      Review of The Bad News Bears 2005 Version     Bright Blessings, Film Lovers! I found another gem with magical lessons and this one is a remake of a beloved 1970’s movie that can never be forgotten: The Bad News Bears. Not for the easily offended, this one casts Billy Bob Thornton, and Greg Kinnear as sparring coaches, hellbent on proving to one another that THEY are the best little league baseball coach with the best players! Here is a trailer.     While this is considered to have bombed at the box office, and critics have called it a replica of the 1979 version, saying that was disappointing.…
