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 […]

You Are Not Alone: The Hermit

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I was happy to see the Hermit this morning as I was checking what card to blog about next. From the power of the Chariot to the passion of Strength to the solitude of the Hermit. Alone time. Introspection. Guidance. […]

Without Hazard: Thoughts On The Strength Card

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I was looking through one of my ginormous airtight containers this afternoon and found folders and manilla envelops of papers and photographs and old bills and letters of reference from professors and rejections from poetry magazines but the best find were the […]

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

Mercury Retrograde Meets the Knight of Wands
Do you ever fall in love and not know why? I fell in love with Tarot. I am in love with Tarot. But I don't think about it, you know? I just do it. Live it. And sometimes I wonder why or how. As a kid I wasn't

Sweet Fruit In The Nut: Total Lunar Eclipse October 8th
What you can do this Full Moon (Eclipse) is release the pain from inside the nut. Release it. Let it go. I wasn't sure how far this metaphor could take me so I looked up "nut" on my Mac dictionary/thesaurus
