Before I get going with this week’s article, I have been asked by Eric and the Planet Waves team to write something about my own experience of Planet Waves and why it is that I have been a subscriber for some years now. Being terribly English, and subject to the unwritten law of self-deprecation and understatement, the only trumpet-blowing you’ll typically find here is on the Judgement card. Having said that, I am passionate about those things that I value, and I value Planet Waves — what it stands for, what it offers, and its level of professionalism in a medium that often seems to want to prove everything to the contrary.
I came to Planet Waves through Jonathan Cainer several years ago — clicked on an article written by Eric, found the Planet Waves site, and kept coming back. As someone deeply interested in psychology and self-development, Planet Waves provided something I had rarely found before: the opportunity for inquiry and insight. It has provided support and validation. It has also been provocative and challenging, provoking and challenging me to start widening what were then all-too-narrow horizons. My life has changed immeasurably since I started reading it, and writing for it, and in no small part due to our meeting.
Having been a Web writer and content manager in my previous professional life, I know what it takes to publish online in terms of time, resources and manpower. The subscriber editions rival little else that I’ve seen in terms of content and production values; and I know first-hand that they have the ability to catalyse and effect change. If you feel at all moved to become part of something that can support, validate — and, yes, provoke and challenge — then click here to become a subscriber.

On a whim earlier this week, I decided to pull a card from the Thoth Tarot and use that as the basis for today’s article. I work with the Thoth for most of my own readings, and it felt timely to go back to it. Yes, it tends to polarise people into ‘love it’/’hate it’ camps — most frequently due to one of its creators — but most people would be hard-pushed to refute that it is visually striking. I consider it one of the most beautiful tarot decks I have seen — and there are a lot out there.
