Part Four of Mick Frankel's excellent course: Hebrew for Tarot Readers - the Planetary Trumps.
A tutorial series by guest poster, Mick Frankel Part One: the Mother Letters There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet: “Ch” is pronounced like a full-on Scots version of “Loch”. Along with “tz” it’s the characteristic sound of Hebrew as in the word, “chutzpah”.
We’ve all been there, it happened to me this week. You’re looking at a tarot card, and the one next to it and you know it’s where you’ve got to go – but you just don’t know how you’re gonna make it! Well my dear readers, I have the answer for you. It’s called the Stepping Stones to Success Tarot Reading Method. Catchy eh?!
Guest post series by Bonnie Cehovet I think that everyone understands that the journey through the archetypes of the Major Arcana is a journey of individuation, of personal growth and enlightenment. There are several different ways in which the journey can be broken down.

In the previous post I introduced to you the tarot equivalent of Robert Dilts’ Logical Levels Model – a tarot spread I created and imaginatively titled The Logical Levels Tarot Spread! It brought together two powerful systems to help you understand yourself better, where you are in yourself, in your life and in relation to your goals and desires.

Created and self-published by Mary Griffin, this stunning deck took 3 years to complete and is the most wonderfully colourful deck I have seen in a very long time.
