Join me on an exciting creative-enlightening journey

Two of Cups [work in progress]

Two of Cups [work in progress]
Last December, I was exhausted. I am working for a while now on a Cartomancy manual which will be divided into four large volumes, and it was conceived as a step by step, initiatory process. Although it is roughly based on my three decades on research, study and practical experience, on things I have written and especially on the accompanying book for my first published Tarot deck, the re-writing and re-editing process wear me entirely down. So, last December, I decided to allow my self a small break from work. Those who know me by now knows that ‘break’ in my case means another kind of work, respectively focusing on another project.
Some of you also may notice my interest in so-called dystopian literature, especially Read more Join me on an exciting creative-enlightening journey

(Beeswax [Encaustic] Collage: “The Cartomancer” by Joanna Powell Colbert. Source gaiansoul.com)
The most frequently asked questions are regarding issues concerning our relationships. I would say this is something natural; humans are emotional creatures. It is also a fact that most people are looking for answers or guidance when the circumstances are not as they wanted to be. When everything is peaceful and peachy, nobody needs a cop, a doctor, a priest, a therapist, a shoulder to cry on or an astrologer, a numerologist or a cartomancer. People generally seek out Read more Relationship and third-party readings

Manual of Cartomancy (book cover)
As probably the vast majority of the card readers, I also started backwards. I have begun with reading the cards; only afterwards, I started studying and learning. Three decades later, I am still learning. I have got to the conclusion that learning is an ongoing and never-ending process. The day I will stop being a student is the day I will probably die.
Cartomancy is the art of reading the cards. (…)

Another look at the Court Cards, part one

The Emperor and the King of Wands (Cary-Yale Visconti)

The Emperor and the King of Wands (Cary-Yale Visconti)

The Knight of Wands, Queen of Disks and Page of Swords.

The Court Cards are the super-humans of the deck of cards. They are the gods-chosen, the representatives of the gods in our world. For example, the Two, Three and Four of Wands are different facets of the Knight of Wands and their process of spiritual development – which may be called awakening or enlightenment – should lead them to transform into Knights of Wands.

The esoteric diet

Esoteric diet

Esoteric diet

Staying or getting fit, living a healthy life is one of the Holy Grail of modern man. All sort of ‘miraculous’ or ‘secret’ methods are circulated nowadays. However, not so many people are aware that esotericism deals not only with abstract and apparently fruitless theoretical aspects but also with the health of the physical body.
According to the most commonly used definition in the dictionaries, esoteric means “intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with specialised knowledge or interest.”
People are generally scared and refractive of things they do not know or do not understand. Bringing up ‘esotericism’ is one of those things that makes people uncomfortable. Esoteric is often considered mysticism and the sum of dubious medieval superstitions and practices. Read more The esoteric diet
