The Tattooist of Auschwitz

Easter is a time of hope. It therefore seems the perfect moment to explore the riveting survival tale of the Jewish man who tattoed prisoners at the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War 2. His story has not come to light until now because of the incredible guilt he carried about what he was forced to do to his fellow prisoners.

Let’s explore his story shall we? No spoilers, I promise. Continue reading

Ten Of Cups: Happy Families

10 Cups

Ten Of Cups: A man and woman wrap their arms around one another while children cavort happily at their feet. In the distance you can see a well-appointed home. The grass is green, water flows through the meadow and a rainbow in the sky promises a pot of gold.

This is the ultimate cups card. Cups are about feelings and you can feel the love oozing out of this picture. The Ten Of Cups represents a happy family, in whatever form it may take. Maybe it’s your immediate family or your work family or the family you’ve made with friends. Whatever type of family it may be, it’s a blessing in your life.

I feel the love in my classroom everyday, my grade is a happy family (ya know, most of the time.) Do you have a Ten Of Cups style family you are part of? Please share…

Ten Of Cups + The Tower: Family Drama

We’re having our fair share of family drama at the moment. My favourite astrologer Mystic Medusa says that the whole world is experiencing what she calls the Zap Zone, i.e. a period of upheaval and change, and that this can be felt on an individual level.

The Tarot Of The Christmas You Want Vs The Christmas You Get

So. It’s Christmas Eve here in Australia and I’m writing my post early before heading off with the family to my parent’s house. My youngest daughter is beyond excited and is champing at the bit to open her first present which she’ll get to do when I finish this because it’s too darn heavy to lift into the car (it’s a rubber dinghy). But before she starts ripping into that wrapping paper I want to discuss the Christmas you want versus the Christmas you often get.

This card represents the Christmas we want…

Death In Its Infinite Variety

My thoughts today are with the families and friends of those who have passed away during  the once-in-a-lifetime weather event happening along the U.S. east coast. So I thought I’d explore different types of death Tarot style. Keeping in mind that the Death card doesn’t always mean someone is going to die. Far from it. But sometimes it does. Death during a freak event such as Hurricane Sandy would be represented as follows:
