The idea of a mysterious, magic mirror evokes scenes from fairy tales like Snow White, where the wicked queen looks into the mirror and is able to see what her enemies are plotting against her. But do magic mirrors really exist? Can they be used to see into the future, as seen in so many fantasy and horror films? The answer is yes.
The magic mirror, also known as the black mirror, is a powerful scrying tool that has been used for thousands of years. A scrying tool is typically an item with a polished or reflective surface, such as a crystal ball, mirror or even a bowl of water. The seer gazes into the reflective surface to see psychic visions.

The Tarot’s suit of Cups represents the element of water and signifies our feelings and emotions in readings. It also denotes love, intuition, desires, dreams and relationships – including professional, personal, family and casual relationships.
Beginning with the Ace of Cups through the Court cards (Page, Knight, Queen and King) reveal feelings, intuition and love in a reading. Depending on the context of the Tarot reading and the nature of the particular spread, the Cups describe how we may be feeling towards love and how others in our life feel about love. Is there love between the querent and the other party? Read the rest of this entry »
There are many meditation tools available, but none so specific as the Tarot. The rich history and symbolism contained in these cards, from their early Egyptian origins to their use as gypsy fortune telling tools, have given them a life of their own. The Tarot cards have become a living oracle.
Meditation on the cards can create a unique focus in your meditation practice. The ability to draw and absorb the energies contained in the cards will also better your life. Read the rest of this entry »
When preparing for a psychic consultation, make sure you read the adviser’s profile, reviews and testimonials, especially if you have never read with the psychic before. This way you can get a general sense of client satisfaction, accuracy, and their style of delivery. Use your intuition when picking a psychic adviser. This is extremely important!
If the psychic has a lot of positive feedback, but one or two bad comments, don’t allow yourself not to read with the psychic. Nobody’s perfect and we do not always have a good connection with everyone. Read the rest of this entry »
Tasseography is the art of reading the tea cup or coffee cup, otherwise known as tasseomancy or tassology. It originates from the Arabic word tasse, which means ‘cup’ or ‘goblet.’ This ancient form of divination is derived by reading the patterns of the tea leaves, coffee grounds and even wine sediments.
Although it is commonly associated with gypsy fortunetellers and crazy old cat ladies, it is a mysterious and ritualistic art with long history going back to ancient Greece. Tasseography developed independently throughout Asia, the Middle East and Greece. Modern tasseography was further seen throughout Scotland, Ireland and Eastern Europe. Read the rest of this entry »
When I was a kid, I lived on the end of a very long street. At the top of that same street lived the local tea-leaf reader. I wish I can remember what she looked like, but I vividly remember her house number scrawled in thick black marker on a piece of cardboard… and nailed to a tree. Of course, we all went to her for readings when we were teenagers, but I can’t for the life of me remember what she said to me during my reading.
Not surprisingly, tea-leaf reading as a method of divination, also known as tasseography or teomancy, goes way, way, back. It also makes sense that reading tea leaves follows the path of the cultural and economic practice of the trade of tea itself. Read the rest of this entry »
As an intuitive, I do my best to gauge how things are unfolding in a given situation. I gain insight from Spirit about how things are unfolding, based on the momentum of a situation. That being said, I do not believe that we are fated into anything in this life, nor is our future static. I do my best to stay away from ‘fortune telling’ language, because it often takes away from the innate power of our own actions.
Every focused intention is a cause that will lead us to an effect. So, the best we can do in our lives is to ascertain what type of action creates an ideal circumstance. In my experience loving causes as a rule create the ideal circumstances and open up the highest path for the individual.
In the esoteric Christian tradition it is stated that, “God is Love.” So, to align with the will of Love is in essence aligning with the Creative Force of the Universe. It is certainly true that there is a higher effect when we are able to align with the will of Love. The challenging part is to ascertain Love’s will. Read the rest of this entry »
Many people come to a Tarot reader wanting to find out about the future. They seem to think that the future is set in stone and so they can be told exactly what is going to happen. They want the reading to “predict the future.” The reality of Tarot is that it offers guidelines. The reader looks at the cards, interprets them, and then tells of the probable outcome.
Many people can read Tarot cards, but to be really good at it does take a practice, and good intuition or psychic ability goes a long way. The best way to learn Tarot is to learn the meanings, hold the cards, shuffle them, and feel what they are telling you. You also need to practice, practice, and practice. The most recommended Tarot deck to start with and learn with is the Rider-Waite Tarot. The pictures are clear and they seem to work best for beginners. Read the rest of this entry »
