Tarot & Love: A Changing Perspective

Tarot & Love: A Changing Perspective

It's shit - that moment when you realise that not only is the tarot never going to deal you the cards you want to hold; life isn't going to either. You know too much. You see too much. Interpretations are no longer one-dimensional, straightforward.

Tarot: Dreaming While You're Awake

As with dreams, tarot prefers to communicate using symbol and metaphor. Often, it is a language that on the surface appears nonsensical, but which we find we can understand once we become willing and able translators.

There is a part of us that is adept at moving in the same rhythm, and it is this part that takes over when we work with tarot.

"No Guru, No Method, No Teacher", Part I

For a very long time, I considered myself a bit of a charlatan. I've been a jack of all trades; and a master of none. I have talked about, and worked with, tarot, but I have never managed to fully tread the path of the adept in anything tarot-related.

Is Your Life Falling Apart? Or Is It Trying To Come Together?

Is Your Life Falling Apart? Or Is It Trying To Come Together?

One of the greatest gifts that a Jungian approach to tarot - and to my own life - has given me has been indescribably precious: The understanding that the crisis and breakdown that I was plunged into aged 34 was not only normal, but a rite of passage.

When the Teacher Becomes the Student - A Lesson in Humility

This week, I came face-to-face with another learning lesson, in a very personal way. And this time it wasn't a lesson in doubt and awe, but a lesson in humility.

Tarot is a Verb, Not a Noun

Tarot is a Verb, Not a Noun

I believe that when we look at a reading, we are looking at an aspect of the unconscious. And when we become aware of the unconscious, the unconscious becomes aware that we are aware of it.

Pedestals and Projections: A Tale of Growing Up

I can remember a moment when my style of tarot reading changed significantly. Actually, it was more than that: it was the moment when I started to relate differently to what I once thought was separate from me.
