Hierophant Major Arcana Tarot Divination Card Hierophant major arcana tarot card represents a quality within us that registers an awareness of phenomenon.

See Tarot Hermit and Tarot Devil In the foreground of the card the scroll of life unfolds and as it does so the […]

Hanged Man Tarot Card, Hunting Ground Of The Paradoxical Bat







Hanged Man Tarot Card The Hanged Man tarot card represents a world where consciousness is given up to sleep and our nocturnal eidolon, in the image of a bat, is released to hunt through our dreams.

Because our traditional concepts of language are not understood by the beings we encounter at these depths we […]

The Nightside







Qlippoth An Alternative View Of The Nightside There is a common belief in certain circles that there are two QBL Trees of Life: the Light or Dayside Tree and the Dark or Nightside Tree.  The Light Tree, fig 1, and the Dark Tree, fig 2 (fig 1 inverted). When displayed together they are often arranged as in fig 3. There is an argument for this, but, we might also consider that when we understand all is perspective, we then realize there is only one Tree. When a body is alive, the four worlds of the QBL are engaged together like gears […]

The images we are presented with are generally what we need to see. In divination, we are challenged to see the reasons why we are where we are and what we need to do to move forward. The answers […]
