MUMMY’S BOY - This one still lives at home at age 44. He’ll have very good excuses for doing so (divorce/unemployment etc), including being close to his mother. But this is not a man who loves his mother – it’s someone with an unhealthy tie to his mother, which is making him dangle from her apron strings in one way or another. There are quite a few of these who actually hate their mother and make no secret of it, yet they seem incapable of breaking free.
How he’ll make your life hell: On some level he will always be comparing you to her. If he loves her, you will never be good enough and if he hates her, he will keep spotting similarities between you.
What he looks like in the Tarot: Continue reading
Looking to date an über romantic guy? Need your man to compose his own love poems for you? The Knight of Cups is the guy for you!
This is the man who as a young boy used to include a handwritten poem in the Mother’s Day card. He is the one who used to get scolded for daydreaming by his teachers, but who stunned the very same teachers with his imaginative art, writing or musical composition.
Often quite shy with the opposite sex, he’s a later bloomer when it comes to dating and getting to any sort of ‘base.’ However, once he gets a handle on lurve, he’s firmly stuck on romance. He’ll never be single for any longer periond of time after that. And if he does have singledom enforced on him, he’s constantly yearning for and jonesing after the ever-elusive ‘One.’ Continue reading
The other day, a client emailed me to ask about how timing, fate and free will are related.
It is actually quite simple.
First of all, let’s get the whole fate vs free will thing out of the way.
We all have free will.
Because of this, very little is set in stone. Continue reading
Last week I posted a post on Seer Pathways, titled 22 Things I Want in a Lover. As you may have guessed it was inspired by both confessional singer/song writer Alanis Morissette and the Tarot Major Arcana.
But what about the shadier side of the Majors? What if they show up reversed or poorly aspected in a position of a spread that reveals the traits and characteristics of a possible lover?
Can the cards help us detect warning signs of trait we do not want before it is too late? They sure can!
(Humour warning! Take seriously at your own peril.)
Look out for these 22 warning signs:
The Fool – He may very well be stoopid. Unless you’re of less than average intelligence yourself, you’re probably not a good match. Continue reading
Which cards will reveal that what you think of as romance or even true love, is really a thinly veiled power dynamic with all the trappings of a passionate love affair? Before asking the cards, you will have probably already experienced the push-me-pull-you dynamic present in any relationship with power as a core theme. It could even be less subtle, in which case you would probably refer to this is a love/hate relationship.
Before looking at individual cards, I want to make clear that all relationship dynamics serve a purpose and hence there is no judgement associated with any of them. They exist to teach us valuable lessons and have been created by subconscious portions of the self, looking for an expression in order to be brought to the light and healed.
In the Tarot, cards indicating a (sexual) power dynamic often relate to the Mars cards. Mars is the masculine expression of the sexual energy and is found in both genders but to a higher degree in men since it is directly related to blood testosterone levels.
The Mars cards are: Continue reading
