Lift Your Spirit!

One of my tarot students had a sudden accident and hurt her back when she tripped over her dog (a lovely lab) who always follows her around.

She selected 3 tarot cards, one each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. Body and Mind were good cards for her, but not Spirit. (This tarot spread for health is on page 164 of Introduction To Tarot.) So her spirit was waning, she was becoming discouraged, and she asked...

Video: Horse Month in Monkey Year

A woman from google, a user experience researcher, stopped by my place for me to beta test google’s new Director video app for iPhone 7. I was videoed using the new app, and then the vid was to be played for the google research team to help improve user interfacing. I was probably selected because I have a google account, and my zip code is in San Francisco. For my one hour of time, I received a $100 Visa gift card. At first, I could not figure it out because a couple of the prompts were not clear. Then it suddenly clicked, so the researcher helped me make a video. For a topic, I...

2015 SHEEP, GOAT, OR RAM?

2015 SHEEP, GOAT, OR RAM?

SHEEP, GOAT, OR RAM? Many people ask me if 2015 Chinese New Year is the Sheep, Goat, or Ram. Some translations refer to Sheep as Ram or Goat. This can be misleading. Ram is a yang symbol of masculinity, but Sheep is essentially yin. Ram could be confused with the western sign Aries the Ram, but Sheep aren’t know for their pioneering spirit like Aries. Aries correlates to the Chinese sign Dragon. Goat may bring to mind the western sign Capricorn the Goat, but Sheep rarely possess the drive to ascend to the mountaintop like Capricorn who correlates to the Chinese sign Ox. Sheep...
