“There are as many pillows of illusion as flakes in a snow-storm. We wake from one dream into another dream.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-nineteenth century.

Tomasz Pilch woke up abruptly in the middle of the stuffed and noisy room. He probably felt asleep for a moment, he thought. How bloody embracing is that? What bothered him even more, was that he had no clue where he was and how he got there. It was a large saloon full of people sitting at small, wooded round tables with tiny little candles on each one of them creating an intimate, familiar ambience. However, the atmosphere was more like incendiary. The crowd started cheering and screaming impatiently. Tomasz takes a quick glance at his clock: twenty past nine. The waitress returns to ask if there will be anything else. Tomasz starts to say no, but then he looks at the empty glasses and Read more Seven of Cups (Excerpt)

The Magian Tarot and Postmodern theory

Stephen E. Flowers The Magian Tarok

Stephen E. Flowers The Magian Tarok
I bought this book a while ago, and although I still didn’t found time to read it throughout, this introductory chapter is fascinating.
I share a small fragment here in hope to open your appetite to buy and read the entire work.

“Many philosophers and historians of culture have come to the conclusion that the Western world is entering upon a new epoch of history. The changes that are sweeping the Westernized cultures are similar to those which swept across it with the coming of Christianity and the onset of the Middle Ages (in the early part of the first millennium CE), or the triumph of Scientism following the Renaissance (around 1500 CE). This later development led to what we call the Modern world today.
More recent changes, mainly in the late twentieth century, have Read more The Magian Tarot and Postmodern theory

Pamela Colman Smith has put a lot of work into the details of the Seven of Cups. On the other hand, in addition to the interpretation of the card, based on Etteilla’s work, this is everything that Waite considered sufficient to transmit: “Strange chalices of vision, but the images are more especially those of the fantastic spirit.”

From an esoteric perspective, and following the Christian dogma, the most relevant is that the number seven symbolises Read more The RWS Seven of Cups decrypted

78 The Fool [work in progress]
Back in April, I started a large project which includes a Tarot inspired, esoteric, dystopian-crime novel. Here is a small excerpt from Chapter four, The Fool.

Chapter four, The Fool

“Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot are fools, and those who dare not are slaves.”
(Lord Byron, English poet, peer and politician)

Julian lited up another cigarette. The famous last one before the next. The last cigarette before quit smoking, the last cigarette before supper, the last cigarette before going to bed, the last cigarette before whatsoever. Occasionally, something big, significant, unforgettable like a drunken New Year’s Eve or a birthday party that has gone terribly wrong. Julian loved each and every one of his last cigarettes. They are were all special – and not only because it was problematic to get real cigarettes these days. Truthfully, Julian Read more The Fool (Excerpt)

Monkey business

Etsy 2020

Etsy 2020
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary means ‘illegal or improper activity or behaviour’.
I am – among many other things – a self-publishing Tarot creator. I generally create ‘odd’, uncommercial decks. It is my opinion that the Tarot primordially is an instrument of preserving and transmitting esoteric knowledge (wisdom).
I do not have the possibility to print and store larger quantities of my decks, let’s say 2000 copies, which, obviously, means considerably lower production costs. At this point, I only can offer print-on-demand decks, which means Read more Monkey business

About the new Numerology course

ITF Numerology course

ITF Numerology course
Astrology and Numerology are not alternatives, but complementary methods of knowledge. These two branches of the esoteric science are deeply interconnected. St. Augustine of Hippo noted that “numbers are the Universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.”
Mathematics is considered the language of God(s) and therefore, the language of creation. According to the Jewish mystical tradition Read more About the new Numerology course
