Welcome to Golden Pomegranate Tarot
If you are interested in reading about Tarot and the Tree of Life, Qabalah, and the Thoth Tarot, then this is the place for you. The goldenpomtree blog is where I look deeply into invidual cards, how to work with Tarot and the Tree of Life more generally, and also review (mostly Qabalah-related) decks.
Here are a few of my most recent blog titles: ‘Turning The World Upside-Down: The Thoth Tarot from a new perspective’, ‘Kether Rising: The Presence of Divinity on the Tree of Life’, ‘”Tzaddi is not the Star”: Clash of the Titans’, and ‘Trump XVI: Eye in the Sky’. You can also find posts that offer tips on how to use the Tree of Life in your own work, for example ‘Court Cards and the Zodiac Wheel’ and ‘The Thoth Tarot and Your Birth Cards’. Have a look through! You can find links to my most recent posts below.
