Help isn’t always helpful is a lesson I learned from Annie Lomax of blessed memory back in the 70s when she was training me to work on a hotline. Sometimes, help is offered as a sedative when someone else is having strong emotions that make you uncom…

Just as the decks we use are diverse, so are the ways in which we look at the cards. Examine the cards and ways to interpret them, be it through color, symbolism or sheer instinct. Learn the differences between the major and minor arcana as well as how to interpret simple tarot spreads. Please bring a tarot deck to class (preferably Coleman/Waite a.k.a Rider-Waite) or a deck that you have been using for a while.

The Journey from Hod to Netzach: or how I came to Love the Tower Card, by Karen Bruhin
“There is a lot that happens magically when we truly initiate from one level of our practice to another. Our mundane lives get shaken up and stirred while we get more clarity in our actual spiritual/magickal practices, and the dance goes back and forth between the two. In this class we will take on quick over view of the Qabalistic spheres of Hod (Splendor), Netzach (Victory), the path between them (27), and the Tower card from the tarot, and how they relate to initiation.”

It seems there’s always some astronomer or scientist debunking astrology without understanding the very basic premise of astrology.
Philadelphia Witch Karen Bruhin says she doesn’t have the gardening space that rural and suburban Witches enjoy. Her go to plants are horehound and chamomile.
It is a great pleasure in the life of an artist to be able to share one’s vision with the world. The internet and online libraries are a lot of fun, but being able to showcase one’s work in a place where people can come and view it in person is so mu

Another great book from Ivo Dominguez Jr.. As always his instructions are clear and concise. My favorite take away from this book is his Cord Ward; it was easy to construct, is easy to maintain, and provides an effective ward while traveling.
Please join me for the opening reception for my art exhibition, Goddesses for Our Time, featuring paintings of my friends posing as Goddesses needed in these difficult times.
I have been involved in occult and spiritual pursuits since I was a child, performed rituals as a teenager, but my first attendance at a Pagan event was in 1978 so I count that as my start in the community. Next year will be my 40th year as a member of this community. In that time I have learned from peers, elders, students, spirits and God/des/es, and from close observation and contemplation of my experiences. I’ve owned and run a metaphysical shop twice in my time as a Pagan. The first time for 6 years and the second time for 10 years. Some of my most important lessons came to me from my role as a shop keeper.
This paper looks at the lives and works of Female Surrealists and Symbolists living in the Twentieth and Twenty-first centuries, and considers the ways in which Surrealism has empowered them as women and painters and sculptors.
