Between 1912 and 1922, the great German Romantic poet, Rainer Maria Rilke, wrote a series of ten poems dedicated to the one he loved. The Duino Elegies is a romantic, evocative, heartfelt, and deeply inspiring collection. The poems are emotionally powerful and beautifully written. And, for six months in the late 1990s, this book of poems was my oracle. While I have been a tarot master for thirty-five years, I long ago decided I wanted to know as much as possible about the whole world of the arcane, the unknown. Thus began my quest to become familiar with, if not understand, the major oracles in use today. So, I have studied the ancient science of astrology for forty years. I have been ...

Honoring your ancestors, like any practice that deals with spirits, is a lot like cooking. Anyone can do it, not just people with special training.

She wasn't aware of it at the time, but I'd just started writing Llewellyn's Little Book of Unicorns, and the synchronicity couldn't have been more perfect; this succinct message was the very heart of the book. Unicorns are said to be courageous, fierce, and wild while also being gentle, compassionate, harmonious, and full of grace. They're passionate about themselves and the happiness of those around them.

When I was ten years old, a chance meeting changed my life forever. I made friends with a middle-aged woman who lived a few houses away. She was an excellent cook, and I regularly visited her, motivated at least partly by her cakes and cookies. She and her husband were childless, and I think she enjoyed regular visits from a small boy who loved sweet foods as much as she did. I was a keen reader, and was fascinated that they had a library room in their home. One day, while browsing through their library, I found a section of books on palmistry. She told me her husband was a palmist, and when he came home, he told me something about the subject. Amused at my interest, he started teaching ...
