The”Holistic Well-Being” Example Reading: A Personal Wellness Blueprint

I originally created an example reading based on an existing medical crisis (not mine) but caught myself trying to massage the meaning of the cards to fit the circumstances, so I scrapped it and started over. This time I strove to come up with a personal "wellness blueprint" capturing my present and future state of … Continue reading The”Holistic Well-Being” Example Reading: A Personal Wellness Blueprint

An “Affirmation and Negation” Life-Path Example Reading

To test this spread and its associated table, I performed an example reading using the Retro Thoth deck. I've been contemplating a business venture as a tarot reader for corporate management, so I chose the Knight of Wands as the "Heart of the Matter." On the "Affirmation" side of the spread, the Ace of Swords … Continue reading An “Affirmation and Negation” Life-Path Example Reading

A “Weekly Tone/Daily Tone” Example Reading

To test my new weekly/daily forecast spread, I used my Retro Thoth deck to perform a seven-day reading for the current week beginning Monday, February 21, 2022. I permitted reversals, but in this spread they merely represent a less evident expression of the upright influence. I'm getting good mileage out of the minor and court … Continue reading A “Weekly Tone/Daily Tone” Example Reading

A Missing-Person “Sectional” Suspect and Location Spread

Just when you thought I'd gone off the deep end, here is a very simple layout that I will be using in connection with my other more detailed missing-person spreads. (You will need a board-game spinner or other random "sectioning" method to work with it.) As mentioned in the accompanying text, the thrust of this … Continue reading A Missing-Person “Sectional” Suspect and Location Spread

A “Three-Ring Circus” Business Health Reading

To test this spread, I performed a reading on the corporate health of a relative's employer. I used the Retro Thoth deck with its court-card hierarchy of Princess, Prince, Queen and Knight. The Functional Effectiveness row includes the 10 of Wands reversed; the 3 of Disks; the 2 of Disks reversed; the 3 of Wands … Continue reading A “Three-Ring Circus” Business Health Reading

A “Left Brain/Right Brain” Example Reading: The Fate of Roe vs Wade

AUTHOR'S NOTE: Here is the companion piece to the spread I posted earlier today. To test my new "Left Brain/Right Brain" Split-Decision Spread, I decided to tackle one of the most highly-charged and divisive issues of our time from both a legal and emotional standpoint: the fate of the Roe vs Wade abortion law in … Continue reading A “Left Brain/Right Brain” Example Reading: The Fate of Roe vs Wade

Where Is Harmony? – A Tarot-Cartography View

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is one of my "bonus" posts that I will occasionally double-up on in my daily output. UPDATE: During an online conversation about this reading, someone observed that the 4 of Wands clearly means she is deceased. I responded by saying that I'm not so sure. Aleister Crowley's idea behind the title for … Continue reading Where Is Harmony? – A Tarot-Cartography View

Lunar Month Look-Ahead for February – March, 2022

I just applied my "Threepenny Opera" three-deck selection method to my Lunar Look-ahead reading for the February-March cycle that began with the New Moon on Tuesday, February 1, 2022. I use astrologer Dane Rudhyar's 8-phase "Lunation Cycle" model for this layout (with a nod to Marc Robertson’s Cosmopsychology: Engine of Destiny); each phase is roughly … Continue reading Lunar Month Look-Ahead for February – March, 2022

Updated Transits for the Disappearance of Harmony Montgomery

Authorities have now updated the most likely period for the disappearance of Harmony Montgomery of Manchester, NH to between November 28 and December 10, 2019. Since she was officially in the custody of her father at that time even though her biological mother lived in Haverhill, MA, the event probably occurred in Manchester. Given the … Continue reading Updated Transits for the Disappearance of Harmony Montgomery
