The Hermit becomes The Magician

Happy Newwwww Years Eve!!!  Yay, yippee, wahoo…you made it!!  Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, congratulate yourself.  It may not have been the easiest year, at times, for some of you, however the good news is its over.  Now I’m not saying it was a bad year.  Some of the greatest awareness’ and growth came…

Discovering Your Archetype

Way back when we began this journey I told you I would eventually tell you how to discover your own archetype.  Well I’m happy to announce that day has come.  Just figure out your archetype (the formula is below) and then you can then go back to the archives and read about the Major Arcana…

0/22: The Fool

“When you take a leap of faith one of two things will happen… Someone will catch you or you will be taught to fly.” To me the Fool has always had this sort of carefree, lighthearted, and yes sometimes even foolish energy.  However that being said I also wonder if it is that very nature…

21: The World

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God….

20: Judgement

I sometimes watch the movement in an egg, in a nest on a cliff no one has ever neared, in a world that has not even been named. The purity of all, its wonder, and your sight embracing everything, how could that ever be? Some kind of real omniscience? You will never be able to…

19: The Sun

Well if there had been something you’ve been in question about, or debating what the best choice is, I’m happy to tell you the wait is over.  The Sun is the one clear yes card in the major arcana.  So if you’ve been waiting for a sign, this is it.  However, this is not a…

18: The Moon

Emotions are high with the moon and their is a great depth to them as well.  As most of us know we are all impacted by the moon.  Even the tides of the sea follow the moon and move towards her embrace.  It is a gravitational pull we can never resist.  With the moon we…

17: The Star

If you knew the sky was filled with unlimited possibilities numbered as every star in the sky what would you wish for?  The Star is a reminder that wishes and dreams really do come true. The challenge here being figuring out what it is that you truly desire. Then trusting it actually exists and not…

16: The Tower

The Tower is usually an uncomfortable transformation card to be sure.  It is often interpreted as a tearing down of the old to make room for the new.  However, I can also see this archetype as an invitation to pay attention to whats really important.  What is your foundation?  What are you building on? The…

15: The Devil

In this life a lot of people live in some sort of a cave.  They are sitting in a cave staring at these shadows dancing on the wall.  There are times when a few may become curios and look around to find that there are other people holding up paper cut outs in front of…

14: Temperance

It is because of Temperances elusive nature that I feel there is a mysterious nature to the people who have this as an archetype as well.  One may call it an enigma as well as harmony between all things.  A meeting place in the middle, if you will. Where there is a place and a…

13: Death

Funny how peoples first reactions to the Death card is often to pull back, to worry, or to fear death of someone.  Usually the Death card does not mean the death of someone in particular but rather a death of a way of being.  Its like you’ve been going one direction or believed in something all…
