The Thoth Minor Arcana: “Back Door” to Cartomancy?

I've long wanted to practice playing-card cartomancy, and have studied it just a little. But learning a new system and figuring out how to effectively work with it is a time-consuming proposition, so I haven't made much headway beyond buying a few decks of playing cards and a book or two. However, during online discussions … Continue reading The Thoth Minor Arcana: “Back Door” to Cartomancy?

The American Justice System Superimposed on the Astropsychological Tree of Life

Mainly for my own amusement, I spent some time superimposing elements of the American Justice System on the paths of my "re-imagined" version of the Hermetic (Kircher) Tree of Life. I started with the idea that Justice has to do with the "trial" in any judicial setting and Judgement speaks of the "verdict," and then … Continue reading The American Justice System Superimposed on the Astropsychological Tree of Life

Harmony Montgomery Missing-Person Case: A Natal Horoscope Rectification Attempt

The implication is that nothing remarkable has been found or they would be crowing about their success; however, the FBI is involved and they … Continue reading Investigative Prospects for the Harmony Montgomery Case

What Happened to Harmony? – A Horary Perspective

AUTHOR'S NOTE: I'm running my study of the Harmony Montgomery missing-person case on a parallel track to my normal daily posts, so - at the risk of overloading my readers - here is the latest effort, a bit ahead of schedule. Because the accuracy of horary astrology relies on the instant the astrologer understands the … Continue reading What Happened to Harmony? – A Horary Perspective

The Astropsychology of the Tree of Life, Part 2: General Notes

Since the philosophical and hierarchical bases (beyond my First Principle that "Nothing is sacred") may not be perfectly clear for my comprehensive redistribution of the planets, signs and tarot trumps on the paths of the Hermetic Tree of Life , I decided to post my notes. My goals in reallocating the seven traditional planets to … Continue reading The Astropsychology of the Tree of Life, Part 2: General Notes
