I fell in love with beeswax collage work for its luminous transparency and the mystery that unfolds as each piece is created. These collages are extremely archival, but as with any fine art, care should be given to them.
There should be no fear of the work melting in normal household conditions. The wax and resin will not melt unless exposed to temperatures over degrees Fahrenheit. It is not a good idea to hang or display the collage in direct sunlight.
My marriage of 20 years ended at the beginning of that year, and I sold my beloved island home at the end of it. After I Read more. Bruce said she seeks out tarot readings to help her make more conscious choices in her life rather than being passive.
Tarot cards have existed in Europe since the midth century, when they were used for recreational game playing. Their origins as divination tools, however, are hazy. According to Helen Farley, professor of studies in religion and esotericism at the University of Queensland, theories range from ancient Egyptian practices to a myth that King Charles VI of France had the cards commissioned as a diversion during his struggle with mental health.
6 days ago In Tarot for September , The World is a Major Arcane that rules the four elements of life and all that seems contradictory, the polarities. 6 days ago The Fool, the card of Tarot for October , symbolizes a willingness to live new adventures, but also these new roads can bring you.
The first instances of tarot used as a mystical practice were documented in the 18th century. It has since spread through cultures around the world. A tarot deck includes two categories of cards, the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. Major Arcana cards are also referred to as the "trump cards. The Fool starts the journey with no life experiences and encounters the subject of each respective card in order to gain a new level of world understanding. The Minor Arcana is similar to a standard deck of playing cards, separated into four suits containing 10 numbered cards and four court cards.
A study by Susan Blackmore, a parapsychology researcher, found no difference in a client's perceived accuracy of tarot results told to them by a reader than when the results were randomly generated. Many people think of tarot as a form of fortune-telling, but Ipock-Brown does not.
She said she does not claim to predict the future by reading tarot. She said that assumptions about her motives can be insulting.
I understand that scared feeling, but I also believe so strongly in the ability of a tarot reading to give insight. She describes encounters with what she calls "spiritual allies," or "guides," when she reads the tarot cards.
She says the interactions take place in a "large white room" in her mind where her guides speak to her and show images that give her insight when interpreting the cards. Bruce said she doesn't care what exactly what Ipock-Brown is tuning into, "whether it's a higher self, god or spirits," but she trusts and believes in a gift that goes beyond giving perspective. Tarot readings take place in a careful sequence. After allowing a client to put energy and intentions into the cards through shuffling, the readers arrange selected cards on the table before them.
The layout of the cards determines how the meaning of each relates to the situation at hand. Some readers use traditional layouts, such as the Romany or Celtic Cross patterns, while others use a less structured approach. Ipock-Brown interprets the individual cards as pieces of advice. For example, the Seven of Wands on its own represented the purpose of Bruce's reading that day. It depicts a man standing on a hill, challenged by attackers from below.
He wears two different shoes, hinting at uneven footing or an unsure mind. Ipock-Brown said this signified a need for Bruce's current state of mind to be challenged.
