As I write this, we're officially in Autumnal Equinox (Mabon) season -- the actual day being Sept. 22. I thought I'd post this now because in the face of natural disasters and other difficulties so many of us are now facing, it's good to be reminded that Nature does in its own way move towards balance, and we can too.

Mabon is a recent (20th century) neo-pagan name given by Aidan Kelly, American founder of the New Reformed Orthodox Order of the Golden Dawn, to the seasonal holy day of the Autumnal Equinox. The name has stuck for many followers o...

One of my favorite ways to celebrate the cross quarter holyday of Lammas is to do a special tarot reading. (Another is to read the excellent novel Lammas Night by Katherine Kurtz, available for Kindle but may be out of print otherwise. More on this below).

But before outlining a Lammas tarot spread for you, a bit of background on this holiday may be useful.

Lammas in Brief

Modern Pagans often use August 1st or 2nd as a date of convenience for Lammas.  I prefer the more exact Litha / Equinox midpoint date of when the Sun reaches 15 degrees of Leo....

The last four important sacred days of the year for Pagans and others who follow the natural calendar are Lammas, Mabon (autumnal equinox), Samhain, and Winter Solstice (aka Yule). These days, also called sabbats, correspond with various solar and agricultural points in the year that were of primary important to our ancestors. Sabbat is a word that, similar to the word sabbath, indicates a day for ritual and celebration.

Because the usual Pagan dates vary from the astrological dates, I tend to call the period that encompasses both as the respect...

Feeling like the spiritual black sheep in the family? Got a vague sense of mission since a young age? Not sure what it is?

Having extraordinary or scary psychic experiences?

I know exactly what that's like.  And I want you to know this ~ You don't have to live in despair, wanting to articulate and feel certain about your beliefs, but having no understanding guide to help you sort out wisdom from spiritual blackmail.

I can relate to what you're going through and I have the tools and training to help you figure it out.

Many of us grew up with the tales of Patrick the Irish hero-saint who drove the snakes from Ireland, who is celebrated every March 17th with green beer and shamrocks. Problem is, nothing about that myth is literally true.

Patrick was not his original name, it was Maewyn Succat. He wasn't Irish, but a Briton born in a Roman town, now believed to be in the Cumbria England region. There is no scientific evidence that slithering reptiles have ever inhabited Ireland. And to top it off, he was never actually officially canonized by the Vatican. C...

From time to time I teach an introductory course in reading the Tarot. Students often ask which tarot deck they should buy, and this is my answer -- buy the one that speaks to you.  There are hundreds of decks to choose from, some traditional, some not, but you will know which one is right for you to start with by how you resonate with the imagery. Some styles of artwork will leave you cold. Other styles will draw you in. Still others might completely turn you off. 

Depicted above is the first card in 6 different decks. Only one of of these...

The answer to that question, in my opinion and experience, is BOTH. Indeed some people are born with acute psychic sensing. Those who are lucky to be in a family where such ability is inherited, or at least recognized and nurtured, learn from an early age how to handle it responsibly.

In my experience, born psychics are fairly common, while hereditary psychics are relatively rare.

There are many who are born with some psychic ability, but such a thing is beyond the belief system of the family. In these cases the abilities are discourag...

For many Pagans, Samhain is the most sacred time of year. Whether celebrated on a single night, commonly Oct 31, or acknowledged to last until 24 hours after the Sun reaches the 15th degree of Scorpio -- which this year is at 9:38 pm Pacific time Monday Nov 6th --  Samhain is considered the time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest, and when communicating with the dead is easiest.

In fact, those who have the gifts of psychic mediums may find this season to be replete with contacts from the deceased. If you are new to your psy...

Tomorrow, 19 October 2017 at 11 minutes past noon on the Pacific Coast, the Moon officially meets the Sun at 26 degrees of Libra, and we'll call it the New Moon. Technically, though, we don't see any new moon when these astro-conjunctions occur because the Sun blocks our view of it. So in reality this period, and the days or hours before and after when the Moon is not visible are called the Dark Moon.

Some modern calendars name the date of the New Moon as the time when the first sliver of the waxing crescent comes into view -- usually as much as...

So many of us are feeling unsettled lately. Realities and arrangements as we have known them seem to be unraveling. These are times in which it is so comforting to have spiritual tools like oracle or tarot cards to provide perspective and insight

The image came to me today of knitting, and how it almost always happens at some point that we undo the rows we have done in order to start a different pattern. Amazingly, when I drew an oracle card, it depicted the idea that our fates are predetermined, woven for us in the spirit world.

That thought cor...
