Weekly Card Contemplating the 7 of Pentacles

Now that’s a comfy cat! We’re back at the 7 of Pentacles, which we’ve seen before in very different form. You know from Tarot . . . It’s Easier Than You Think that 7s are about imagination and experimentation and Pentacles are in the material world, our health and finances. Tarot Two…

Embody the Sacred

We’re at the end of our journey with the sacred this year. Next year we jump into concerns in the outer world, where it can be easy to lose sight of the sacred. But next year requires a deep connection between our inner world and the outer world. In other words, we’ll…

Sacred Integration

We’re almost to the end of our year of exploring the Sacred.   November gives us the chance to integrate, to complete that exploration.

What form does the sacred take?   Cathedrals?  Icons?  Arrangements of stones?  Geometrical shapes? Your own body? This earth we live on? And why form at all? We give form to our conceptions of the sacred to give them stability.  We can retreat to a cathedral, knowing it’s dedicated to the sacred (okay,…

Expressing the Sacred
