Manual of Cartomancy, coming soon

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. (…)

The “Manual of Cartomancy” is Continue reading

Another look at the Court Cards, part two

The Hermit and the Page of Disks, Cary-Yale Visconti Tarot deck

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

Page of Disks – Virgo (Mutable/Earth, Mercury in Virgo), under the rulership of The Hermit.
The Page of Disks is all about taking care of practical things. They do not see the point in learning something unless it has a practical use. The Page of Disks are excellent at organising, planning and executing all sort of tasks and teamwork. They are analytic, a good judge of character, but they can be impatient and very critical with others. Logical, detail-oriented, gifted with languages, especially in writing, and with mathematics, the Page of Disks will seem hesitating because they always double, sometimes triple check everything before they give their good to go verdict. Still, Continue reading

Another look at the Court Cards, part one

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.

Archetypes and iconography

The Hermit Father of Time The Wise Old Man
“…the Alphabet of Thoth can be dimly traced in the modern Tarot which can be had at almost every bookseller in Paris. As for it being understood or utilised, the many fortune-tellers in Paris, who make a professional living by it, are sad specimens of failures of attempts at reading, let alone correctly interpreting the symbolism of the Tarot without a preliminary philosophical study of the Science.” – Helena Petrovna Blavatsky Continue reading

A brief history of cards and fortune-telling

Tarot history

History is the study of the past as it is described in written documents and based on physical evidence.
The earliest official mention of playing cards was made in 868 and came from the Chinese writer Su E who describes Princess Tong Cheng playing the “leaf game” with the royal family.
Supposedly, from China, the cards spread to India, Persia and eventually Egypt. Continue reading

The 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. Continue reading

Reading with the Magic Tarot by Frederic Lionel

Reading with the Magic Tarot by Frederic Lionel
Frédéric Lionel was born on 17 July 1908, in Amphion les Bains, France. “The Magic Tarot: Vehicle of Eternal Wisdom” was published initially in Franch by Editions du Rocher in 1980. The English translation I own was published in 1982 by Routledge & Kegan Paul Ltd. The book was accompanied by an exclusive, Major Arcana only deck designed by Lionel. The Magic Tarot is one of the very few specially designed, esoteric – divinatory if you prefer – Tarot decks. While the traditional Western esoteric system, primarily represented by the Golden Dawn, is Kabbalah based and only by subordination connected to Astrology and Numerology, Lionel’s work focuses on Alchemy and aspects of self-development and enlightenment.
