Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Illumination

holding the light

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”
Carl Jung

Illumination can have many meanings. Usually, we think of it as being a word for light or for turning on lights for seeing.

But it is also the word for the practice of decorating a manuscript (often holy scriptures) with highlights and ornamentation.

It also refers to clarification of a subject, through explanation or revelation. And it is often used when discussing spiritual enlightenment, in which insight and awareness bring soulful liberation and understanding.

Illumination in its many facets is a passion for me. It is my purpose here to offer a little light, as well as inspire you to embellish your life with magic and beauty.

As you explore these pages, you will see that I have categorized the Illumination topics according to the Hermetic Quaternary, also known as the Witch’s Pyramid.

They are: To Know, To Will, To Dare, and To Hold Stillness. The fact that these components are aligned with the four suits of the Tarot, and therefore, with the four Elements, is no accident.
