Bare Bones: Meditation on Sukkot and the Tarot Wands

posted by Aliza Einhorn

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 […]

Order & Chaos: The Major Arcana

posted by Aliza Einhorn

We have been talking about all kinds of things in my month long Tarot Clinic: reversed cards, the Tarot numbers, reading pairs and card combinations, interesting spreads from Alejandro Jodorowsky, and delving deep into the Celtic Cross (and more). This […]

The Trouble With Tarot Is Trust

posted by Aliza Einhorn

You know what? I don’t even know what I mean by that. The trouble with Tarot is trust. I was reading Yoav Ben-Dov’s Tarot book on the ferry and taking notes on post-its — for the on-line Tarot class that […]

posted by Aliza Einhorn

I want to share with you a little Tarot spread that I shared in the Tarot class this morning (and yes, you can still join us. My email is at the end of this post if you want more information). […]

Today's Tarot: Six of Pentacles!
I like shuffling the Tarot Illuminati because it is so thick and hard to shuffle, and we see the Six of Pentacles this morning, one of those complex cards according to Rachel Pollack (who I love love love love). But even with my glasses, which I need to read, I get a bit overwhelmed by the detail

Today's Tarot: The Hanged Man
Are you or are you not a sacrifice? I just drew the Hanged Man for someone and went to Google some images for her and saw a Charlie Brown Hanged Man and he looked so damn unhappy but the message I was delivering to her was not an unhappy one but "don't struggle against the ropes" which reminded o

Today's Tarot: Ten of Cups!
And what a beautiful card we see today, the Ten of Cups, one of the happiest cards in the deck. I've gone traditional this morning, got my Rider Waite here, and we see a happy couple with arms outstre
