Tarot Reading for Finding Romance

Welcome to Transmutology Tarot.

Transmutology is a new approach to the study of change. We wish to know about the art of transmutation and to practice it.

Can we find the precious gem of the true self? Can we turn obstacles into pathways? Can we become more aware of our true nature and the nature of reality?

Today’s reading is on the search for romance and a serious relationship. How can we make ourselves more open to the possibilities?

The Tarot is used to meditate on our way of thinking about ourselves and the challenges of life. There is nothing psychic involved. There is no fortune telling, no prediction. ‘Suggestion’ would be a better word.

There is a question. Then the cards are read and their story revealed. The story may open one’s mind just the way walking into a room full of artistic masterworks can change a life forever.

My readings do not speak of how you will soon meet the person of your dreams. My readings talk about you, the questioner. The readings are an inquiry into how you actually are within a situation – how you may try looking at things, both consciously and unconsciously.

The Tarot is a marvelous tool for meditation. It creates unique visual impressions and stories full to bursting with meaning. All the stories revealed by Tarot readings bring something to the reader and the questioner. All Tarot readings are valid. They must simply have their subtle messages decoded by the reader based on his or her connection in the present moment with the questioner.

A reading stumbled upon in a video may have much to offer you in a particular moment. Enjoy the moment. Sit back, clear your mind of distractions, and follow along with the story of the cards.

The deck I am using is the Tarot of Marseille which is the oldest deck currently still in use. The minor arcana cards (the number cards) are much more abstract than the commonly used Rider-Waite deck. This leads me toward a method of reading that incorporates numerology. In other words, each number has a character which when combined with a card’s suit gives a meaning.

I will conduct more readings and they will all find their way here. I hope my readings are of service to you and begin a journey of awareness and eventual transmutation.

William S. Burroughs Ditched Scientology

Here’s an article from I09.com about how William S. Burroughs was, for a period, fascinated by Scientology.  He joined and even used many of the group’s principals in some of his work.  But he eventually turned against the group because he recognized that they were more interested in maintaining a corporate hierarchy of secrecy than in pursuing genuine ideas.  It’s natural for a writer of Burroughs’ genius to be curious and to find the best in a group like Scientology.  It is also natural for him to see through the horse shit and ditch the idiots in a Hollywood Boulevard gutter.

Here’s a good read about Burroughs and Scientology from Dangerous Minds.

Animation by Evan Mather: The Patron Saint of Television

Filmmaker Evan Mather made this beautiful animation about the life and visions of St. Clare of Assisi.  I had no idea that television was divinely protected.

Makes me miss that old cathode ray.

Evan Mather produces films for his Hand Crafted Films company.

This is a very sly and clever filmmaker who seems to enjoy thinking about what makes certain film genres tick.  He works with language as easily as he works with images.  There’s lots more to post from him but you can go and explore his work on his Vimeo page.
