Panel Preview Occult Jigsaw Puzzle

Posted on Updated on

Occult Jigsaw Puzzle Panel, Forcing Correspondences:

You can find books with lists and charts of correspondences to use in your magickal work: which tarot card represents the same energy as which rune or Sephirot, or chakra or astrological sign. This drives some of us crazy. There are many real correspondences out there- the Sun and the metal gold and fire, masculine energy, these are the correspondences on which alchemy is based. But when people see that there’s a sun and a moon in the tarot and then try to make the various runes match up to tarot cards or astrological signs, the systems break down and chaos reigns. Come and share in this discussion where panelists will try to figure out which correspondences work and which are forced. Often the problems with such meshing are due to the fact that these systems can be meshed without an understanding or care for the culture of which they originated. This is a form of misappropriation, because these systems are inseparable from the context of culture and language. And sometimes- they just don’t work.

Panel Spotlight: Tarot Panel

Posted on Updated on

Tiertarock_Mannheim_ca_1778Come to the Atrium and listen to several of our speakers and guests talking about various issues. (let us know if you’d like to be on a panel, you don’t have to be a speaker, just have something to say about the topic. Let us know with the form below, or come to the facebook group and join the conversation!)

Tarot Panel- How to Read Court Cards

This is one of the hardest questions for a beginning reader, because there are SO many ways to read the court cards! Pages are youth, Knights and Kings Men, Queens Women, but while some use hair and eye color, some make an elemental pairing of the court cards, others see the faces on the physical cards. As usual, different readers have different techniques- come hear a few.

As an extra thing you might be interested in- as panels are near and dear to my heart, on the New Normal I ran through some of the topics we’ve had panels on over the last five years at Changing Times Changing Worlds. Listen to that podcast here.

When you get two such voraciously curious and enthusiastic practitioners as Tchipakkan and Maryalyce together, there’s no telling what we’ll talk about. We’ll probably mention her workshops at the con: Good Vibrations: healing with sound energy, Rock My world (about Crystals), Tea Therapy for Chackra Balancing, Angelic Allies, from there we may go on to talk about some upcoming classes she’s doing down at her healing center Akasha’s Journey in Wassaic NY Apple lore and Magick, The Wisdom of Crystal Skulls, Embracing your Path with Persephone, Honey Magick, Crafting Scrying Mirrors, Communicating with our Ancestors, even past lives,… and I’ve just turned her on to a new healing technique: Dynamind. We will just be having lots of fun.

Feel free to call in if you have any questions or comments on any of these topics (or if you think we might not get to the one you were hoping to hear about). 619-639-4606

“She changes everything she touches and everything she touches changes”

Maryalyce (aka Akasha’s Heart) has been practicing witchcraft and the magickal arts since 1994.  She is an ordained minister, priestess, ritualist, writer, teacher, and healer.  She is a member of the Hands On Trade Association, is a Reiki Master Instructor and Practitioner, Advanced Level IET Practitioner, RúnValdr Master (Instructor and Practitioner), and teacher of such things like reading Tarot and Medicine Cards, Introduction to Wicca, Introduction to Witchcraft, Witch-Crafting (making magickal tools), How to Organize/Construct/Lead Rituals, and others.  With her passion for just about all things esoteric, metaphysical, astrological, and deeply spiritual, she decided to follow her soul’s journey to feed, educate, and empower the world community.

This empowerment may come in the form of oracle readings for seekers, healing sessions, healing circles, or Reiki instruction among others.  As a dog lover, she extends this healing to not only dogs, but other animals and familiars as well.  Maryalyce is an ABCDT Certified Dog Trainer, and she and her rescued dog, Cody, are a registered Delta Society Pet Partner therapy team.  Akasha’s Journey has evolved from the same passion for magickal living and crafting tools and items for people and their pets to assist them on their own journeys.  Part of Maryalyce’s dream is to make healing & learning how to heal accessible to the community and the people who truly desire it, and of course, the beautiful animals who cannot ask for it themselves.
The joy is in the journey.  www.akashasjourney.com
