Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Pisces

Pisces Season is a mystery.  The last sign of the Zodiac doesn’t promise answers to the most profound of life’s questions– it only promises to take us deeper into the questions themselves.  Depending on your relationship with the unknown, Pisces Season can either be a mystical, creative time full of surprise or a miserable slog through your own hidden lose ends.  I’ve had both, sometimes concurrently. I think of Pisces as the sign of the dreamtime, the void and the invisible world. Pisces is th...

Tarotscopes that slay: New Moon in Aquarius

Aquarius Season is a time to get weird. This is the sign where the Sun feels like a stranger to itself. It can’t behave in the way it’s most accustomed– rather it must embrace the electric strangeness of this cosmic air sign. Consider Aquarius the sign of the voyeur, the rebel, the alien. As an Aquarius Sun myself, I have always felt like an oddball– the things most people take for granted I cannot help but question. And as a result I have that ferocious streak of Aquarian contrariness. I am al...

Tarotscopes that slay: For the solar eclipse in Capricorn

Remember that iconic scene in Moonstruck? You know the one. Where Nicolas Cage‘s character tells Cher’s character that he’s in love with her and she slaps him twice, hard. And then she says her classic line: Snap out of it! Well that is essentially the energy of Capricorn Season.  It’s a hard slap across the face from someone who actually loves you very much. It’s time to snap out of whatever magical thinking you’ve been living in and face reality. Because the Zodiac is a progression, Capricorn...

Tarotscopes for the New Moon in Sag, hennnny

For all its Cosmic significance, the Zodiac is as terrestrial as dirt. It grounds us on Earth and plants us firmly in our bodies and our lives. We look to the stars, not as an escape but rather, to illuminate our life here, on this planet. The story Astrology tells is our story, including not just our ancestors and descendants but all living beings. If we can harness its wisdom, this ancient system orients us to be in right relationship with the seasons, our diverse communities (human and other...

Tarotscopes that slay: New moon in Scorpio

Welcome to the Season of Death.  I don’t mean to scare you. Death should not be scary.  Death should be our friend. But our Western culture hasn’t set us up too well for that.  And as a result, we have a pretty fucked up relationship with Death. I mean, just notice how we celebrate Halloween.  We either sugarcoat our fears with cute spiders and adorable ghosts– or we head in the other direction. We put severed heads on our lawn, we paint ourselves like monsters and give over to our obsession wi...

Salvador Dalí’s Tarot Cards Get Re-Issued: The Occult Meets Surrealism in a Classic Tarot Card Deck

Tarot began as a card game and became a tool of occult divination. In that form, with its usually elaborate illustrations, the tarot deck found a major cultural role as an art object: here on Open Culture we've featured decks either designed or inspired by the likes of Aleister Crowley, H.R. Giger, Philip K. Dick, and Salvador Dalí. That last, whose limited edition was published in 1984, has proven to be enough of an object of desire to gain the attention of Taschen, the publisher of visually (...

First Decan Taurus and the 5 of Pentacles

We are fully submerged in the lushness that is Taurus. The first 10 degrees of Taurus are the purest expression of Taurus energy. Rich, abundant, solid, sturdy, strong, immovable. Since that is the case, I found it difficult to see all that lushness in the 5 of Pentacles. It doesn’t look lush... (Click on the title to read the full post and explore the website.)

Baby Tarot Cards

Babies are all potential, no past—so they’re ideal subjects for Tarot readings. As a little one starts their journey through life, these cute cards channel your intuition to tap into their future. Adorable color illustrations bring a playful spirit to the archetypes and suits of the traditional 78 card deck: The Magician’s wand is a rattle, Cups turn into baby bottles, and Pentacles become wheels on a toy train. A source of inspiration and entertainment for new parents, it makes a fun and especi...

The Power of Candles in Brooklyn

The New York Post reports on a fascinating business that grows in Brooklyn: Like any budding businesswomen, small-batch candle makers Hayley Elisabeth Kaufman and Whitney Huhmann have settled into a work routine. Kaufman will pick a tarot card before they melt wax, while Huhmann performs reiki over a pile of clear quartz crystals. Trap music blasts through their Greenpoint studio as they meditate and focus on what energy the candle they are about to pour will bring. This happens on the night of ...
