Tarot issue of Many Hands coming September 1st

My grandmother, Germaine (Spaens) Finley, was born in Lille, France. Her husband was the Vice-Consul from the United States, and when he died in 1932, she was given special permission to come to the United States (the document, signed by Herbert Hoover, is still in our family papers). Along with her two sons and one daughter, she also packed a small box of strange-looking, colored fortune-telling cards call the Le Tarot de Marseille.

Save the date: October 23rd, 2011

I'll be the featured guest of Donnaleigh de la Rose's Blog Talk Radio - Beyond Worlds at 7 p.m. on October 23rd. I will be talking about one of my favorite subjects, the "too much" and "too little" meanings of each of the Major Arcana. So head over to her site now and register so that you can listen or download the show.

Tattwa Tattva Tattwas Tattva

However you spell it, working with these cards is one of that best ways to quickly tap into the unconscious.




If you would like a set of downloadable, printable tattwas cards plus detailed instructions on how to use the cards, I've created the images and pulled all the information together from various sources for you into a PDF. $2 via PayPal. Email me at paris@tarotbyparis.com for details. (If you're into the tattwas, we should meet!)

15 - XV The Devil in Tarot

Quotations that help us get the feel of this card:

You can run but you can't hide. (Joe Louis)
It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. (Helen Keller)
No man is free who cannot control himself. (Pythagoras)
A pedestal is as much a prison as any small, confined space. (Gloria Steinem)
The devil tempts us not–'tis we tempt him, beckoning his skill with opportunity. (George Eliot)

How to figure out your Tarot birth card

Method One (used by The Tarot School):
Add the month + day + first two digits of your year of birth + the last two digits of your year of birth.

For example, let's say that your birthday is July 27, 1951. Add the numbers like this:

07
27
19
51

104

Then add the first two plus the last digit, 10 + 4 = 14.

Card 14 is Temperance, the first Birth Card for this date. 14 reduces to 5 (1+4) (The Hierophant), which is the second Birth Card.

Method Two
Add the single digits of your birth date (example 7/27/51)

Too much, balanced, or too little

One of the core principles of Tarot as expressed in the earliest writings about the Tarot is that each card represents an energy* that can be expressed as too much, balanced, or too little.

The Emperor is a card of male-principle energy. Too much male energy results in death and destruction. The scenario unfolding in the Amazon rainforest is a good example–a completely unchecked male energy at work with an utter disregard for the balancing and more nature/nurture female energy. Too little male energy results in apathy and impotence. Balanced male energy is purposeful, strong but not forcing, caring and the perfect partnership to the female energy of The Empress. I like

L'Homage


"The wild is within you; you are its voice. You will never belong fully to the castle, the realm of humans, for yours is a different task: to be the voice of the land, the stars, the wild things, to speak for them in the councils of the castle, to live on the borderlands, not one thing or another but always moving between: shaman, magician, Witch."

From The Twelve Wild Swans by Starhawk and Hillary Valentine
