Meditation on the Moon (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

And now we turn to the Moon. I remember in the first Tarot class that I taught, we had a long long discussion about the Moon. The class was all women I think, women mostly younger than me, and many […]

This Beautiful Place: Meditation on the Star (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

The Star is the future. It’s not here now, not here yet. Stars are far away. This card always feels vague to me. Hope? Yay! Whatever. I know I know, context is everything. I rather see the Star than the […]

Don’t Be Afraid of Your Life: Meditation on the Tower (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

Sometimes I wonder how I got here. We get thrown by the wind. I talked to a client yesterday who has been through so many crisis changes. One of her cards was the Tower but the Tower was the past. […]

Meditations on the Devil (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

That moment when you see exactly where someone’s limit is. I mean this in the context of romantic relationships. You see where someone’s limit is and you can go no farther. Because they won’t go. You can’t make them. Holding […]

A Tarot Card for Leo Season

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I don’t know what a year of healing looks like yet. I’m just starting mine. Like a new song, I don’t know how it goes. The verses, the bridge. Healing bridge. Go over it. See, we were belched out. Evicted […]

Meditation on Temperance (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

This afternoon I took a walk to the ferry. Didn’t go anywhere but there. Just wanted to walk. Wandered the station for a bit. Got something sweet and cold. And I wasn’t thinking about the Temperance card — except that […]

Rootless, Wandering the Earth: Meditation on the Death Card

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I’ve written about this card before. It comes up often enough. What I want to emphasize about the Death card this morning is the slowness of it. It’s no swift Tower conflagration although you may see Death and Tower in […]

Meditations On The Hanged Man (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

Hung up. Strung up. That’s what I sometimes feel and see when I see the Hanged Man. And then other times it’s just a wait. Pause. Break in action. Surrender to the moment, on the dot. Do nothing. Breathe. Hung up. […]

Meditations On The Justice (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I used to get annoyed when I’d see this card. Didn’t know what to make of it. Justice for what? For who? The image didn’t speak to me. Same for the Temperance card. In fact, I found them — gasp […]

Meditations On The Wheel (Of Fortune Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

Every new loss is a repeat of the first. The first loss. Is every gain a repeat of the first? The first time your mother held you. The Sun is in Cancer now so home, family, and mother metaphors come […]

Tarot For Mars In Sagittarius!
I knew I wanted to write something astrological today because Mars has recently entered Sagittarius, which feels so different than Mars in Scorpio. Lighter, more hopeful. Not bogged down in Scorpio gunk. Not that I don't love the Scorpio gunk ;) The problem with Sagittarius, for some, is its anti

When The Tower Is The Answer (To Your Love Problem)
So I was doing a reading for someone the other day. And the topic was love. And the first card was the Tower. And I said JUMP. The Tower is a prison until you jump. Until you change your consciousness. How do you change your consciousness? I got the Death card. Excavation needed. DIG. Sh

And A Dolphin For You: Full Moon in Pisces (Sept 8th)
The Full Moon in Pisces is on Monday. Here are some things to keep in mind: -it can be hard to find your balance on Full Moon day and even for a couple days before or after. The Sun and the Moon are in opposition to each other. The tendency is to see-saw between Sun and Moon, light and dark.

We Fall Like Leaves: Meditation On The Ten Of Wands
Truth is I had my doubts. They'd been dating on line for how long? A year? More? She didn't want to meet. He did. He was ready. She wasn't. And then a slew of health problems delayed it even more. But he stood by her (virtually), loyal and true. And I'd done readings for this gentleman a few time

I Am The Queen Of Swords (Meditations on the Tarot Queens Part 1)
How much pain can you bear comfortably? Hmm. Comfortably is a weird word here, isn't it. Apparently I can bear a fair amount of mental pain. Assimilate it. Integrate it. Learn from it. Teach from it. I have a Moon Pluto conjunction in Virgo in my natal chart (in my First House). You astrology fans k
