Major Arcana Gallery
I’ve made a gallery of all the Majors, apart from the Universe.
I am going to do a Minor Gallery at some point too.
Still working on getting things ready for release. Things always take longer than you expect, and 2016 has been a challenging year.

From my book…
“In a colloquial sense, the term Hanging refers to unstructured and apparently unproductive passing of time as well as the loss of control of a situation. Hanging may seem like a negative experience from a material perspective, as it usually involves the loss of status and possessions, but it’s actually a profound evolutionary process. A total inversion of perspective erases our restricting social imprints, habitual limitations and assumptions and allows a new potential for creative and personal development to emerge. All the superfluous and outdated aspects of the persona are stripped away so that the individual can be reborn. Even in a purely physical sense, the inverted poses of Yoga are often the most powerful and healing. A Yoga Inversion swing has to be one of the greatest tools for self liberation in existence. Hanging upside down decompresses the spine and allows the free flow of vital energy. The blood rushes to the head and refreshes the intelligence. The inversion experience is one of the reasons why the flying fox, an animal that roosts upside down is my personal totem.”

An excerpt from my book about this card, which of course is the Libra card. Happy Super moon Eclipse!
“Lilith is derived from the Mesopotamian word Lilitu or spirit, and she appears in myth of Inanna as a resident of the Huluppu tree. Like the owl she builds her home inside a tree. The owl is has the ability to see in the dark and so is a symbol of occult wisdom and a guardian of the gateway into the Akashic realm or collective unconscious. It is a totem of the underworld, and a symbol of death, but also has the wings of spirit which lift it into the spiritual heights.The bird goddess is also a snake goddess and her origins are Neolithic. She is the original all powerful female deity who represents the entire continuum of life, death and rebirth.
Lilith is associated with the serpent and appears in the bible as the original partner of Adam who is unwilling to be submissive sexually and so is rejected by him. She can be interpreted as the untameable force of female sexuality being chased away by emerging patriarchal power. Justice is surely offended by the oppression and enslavement of half of the human race by the other half. Bringing the world back into balance will require the reacceptance of female power and sexuality, as represented by Lilith, the indomitable woman.”
