I bought myself a necklace for my birthday. I saw a picture of it at the shop and decided that if it was still there on my birthday, I would buy it.
It’s a handcrafted piece done by a local artist who has put tarot cards on a pendant. Since I first learned the tarot, the Fool has been one of my favorite cards. But I got special insight into WHY this weekend.... Read Full Post »

For me personally, I would LOVE to state a label for my Personal Belief System. But practically speaking that would be impossible - and ridiculous - as it is unique to me. In my individualism, I am most like a humanist.
However, just 7 years ago I had a completely differenent religious belief system that I could name and adhere to... I was on top of the world and navigating it as best I could. Then I star...Read Full Post »

It may seem to some to be futile mind-numbing work to examine the fundamental story that lies behind most of our individual behavior and thought. And don't get me wrong. It IS a lot of work.

There are as many belief systems in the world as there are people. A belief system is that idea in your brain that you have created or co-created that tells you how life works. It attempts to answer those three universal questions discussed in philosophy classes: Who AM I? What am I here FOR? Where am I going? Also known as: Identity, Purpose, Destiny
Many people have found that they either inherit and adhere to a belief system or find a new one or strike ou...Read Full Post »

Phases of the Moon part 2
Crescent Moon = Sextile
An aspect is a word astrologers use when two planets are within a certain number of degrees of each other.
