What is Alchemy?

Alchemy is an ancient practice that can be considered in part as a precursor to chemistry. However, like Freemasonry, it can be said to have both a speculative and an operative side. While “operative” alchemy deals with the transformation of base metals into gold, “speculative” alchemy uses similar symbolism, allegory, and language to speak of spiritual truths and a path to inner light and wisdom.

Upcoming Tarot Reading Events

It’s October, which means that Hallowe’en is here! Many of you have been wondering when I’ll be doing more Tarot readings, and the answer is this month. Pairings Portland has invited me to read Tarot at their wine shop two nights this month. I will be there on October 27th and October 31st. We are still working out the details, so be sure to check back soon for Facebook events and more information.

Here are some things I do know about the events right now.

  • I’ll have new Tarot decks that you haven’t seen before!
  • Readings will cost $10 and I’ll be accepting Bitcoin.
  • There will be lots of wine.
  • Costumes are encouraged!
  • I think if you bring your Hallowe’en candy in on the 31st, you can get Jeff to pair a wine to it.

The Tarot is a never-ending journey. A rabbit hole of esoteric symbolism! Spending time with @soror_tzadkiel’s #RotaTarot and taking to her about it is a great reminder that I’ve got a lot left to learn. The Major Arcana in a wheel reminds me of the 231 Gates, like Bruno’s Seal of Seals. So many possibilities!
