“Magus” is an old Persian word meaning Priest. The Bible tells us that three Magi visited baby Jesus bringing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, and here we get a small insight into the dynamics – the birth of someone special is always heralded by spirits to those who have the ability to perceive. This knowledge is received by friends and enemies alike; King Herod launched a ore-emptive strike by slaughtering new-born boys, to no avail. Continue reading
Interesting article on a client’s experience of having an Opening of the Key Tarot spread reading by Demian Allan
A booklet devoted to the Fool, with 93 copies for the standard edtion, and only 31 for the deluxe edition with extras, is published on June 21st at 8pm GMT.
All you numerological and gematria enthusiasts will note the significance, and the longest day – is that the time of the solstice?
The graphic on Lashtal is rather twee, so if it is part of the graphic of the Fool, it will be an interesting departure for Kenneth Grant’s secretary.
So is the Typhonian OTO going all cute, or is some major magical operation going on regarding the Tarot? I somehow doubt Mr Staley will be forthcoming on the subject.
This is a great video by princeofcups518 of a tarot reading using the Opening of the Key spread. You get a really good feel of how to interpret the Tarot using card counting and Elemental Dignities in a natual way.

Punditt Maharaj exemplified this extraordinary ability to transcend all spiritual and magical systems in this world, and worlds beyond. Continue reading
From a very early age I knew I was different. I spent most of my childhood on school premises, and I was particularly aware of spirits, especially when the buildings were empty. I remember one day at school when I was thirteen, looking at the other children, and realising that I was different. Now, you may think that I was going through a typical teenage phase, but for most of my teens I felt too old to do most things! I also spent a lot of time with adults and older people, despite being nearly the oldest in my year. Continue reading
The January 2013 issue of Attune Magazine for Tarot readers who know more than the basics, is out, and it looks very good. I only came across it via an invite from the editor Mary Nale on Google+.
Tarot magazines have a checkered history, for despite the popularity of tarot, no dedicated publication has prospered. Mary Nale may have discovered a way of reviving the genre, creating the magazine on Joomag, which is a free online digital website.
