Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Illumination: To Know

“Learn to see, and then you’ll know that there is no end to the new worlds of our vision.” Carlos Castaneda

Enjoy a richer, more soulful way of living. Thrive, even during times of challenge, transition, and transformation. Aligning yourself in harmony with your own visions, your truth, and the rightness of life is a revolutionary act of self-care. Allow me to show you how.

Illumination means to shed light on a place or a subject. It also refers to when books of knowledge have pages embellished and even gilded with artwork.

And “to know” means that you have a clear objective in mind, plus the understanding of how to manifest the changes you want to as a result of your intention.

To know is the principle of the Witch’s Pyramid that relates to the element of Air and East. In most Tarot systems Air is associated with the suit of Swords.

The Swords can cut away the superfluous, help you determine and protect your boundaries, and teach the skills necessary for success without harm. Swords focus on the power of the mind, including communication, song, poetry, and perception.

Thus, within this section, you will find my published and most frequently asked-for articles and essays, including the perennially popular ones I’ve gathered for you in The Reading Room.
