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 […]

The High Priestess For Scorpio Season
It's magical to go on Google and look at all the different images of the Tarot. Just now I was posting on my Tumblr  pictures of the High Priestess and my understanding of her began to deepen. It's not that different from digging in the Tarot books, uncovering layers of meaning from different w

Tarot For The New Moon Eclipse In Scorpio
Eclipses are nothing to fear. It would be akin to fearing your life. The Eclipses ARE your life, reflecting your life back to you. The Moon as mirror. I type this and realize: okay sometimes I DO fear my life. What was, what is, what will be. All of it. I fear therefore I am. But this upcom

Bare Bones: Meditation on Sukkot and the Tarot Wands
I think today is the last day of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. I use an astrological calendar, not a Jewish one, and anything but a Jewish calendar usually gets this stuff wrong -- because the J Holidays start in the evening. In either case, today is the last day of Sukkot, or tomorrow is, and I

Three Cards For Delicious October + More Ten Of Wands?
It's here. In my neck of the woods, it's here. The better weather. The smell of fall. The rain is a cold rain. I light more candles around the house. I crave warm food and the smell of baking bread and apples and the noises outside automatically lower and descend. It's as if everybody knows shhh the
