Apocalypse of the Occult: Blowing Down the Esoteric House of Cards



by Jo-Anne Penn-Kast April 10, 2009 08:02 PM EST

Welcome to tarot with a twist, an ironically unpredictable blog dedicated to taking a more empirical and sometimes lighthearted approach to exploring and unraveling the Tarot.

My name is Jo-Anne Penn-Kast, but you can call me Jo. I'm not a psychic, nor a mystical guru, and I don't do card tricks. In fact, I'm more than usually ordinary, but I have extraordinary hope for the future because I can predict things--and so can you.

"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain"-- Professor Marvel/The Wizard of Oz

So Why does tarot work and How can I help to make it work for you?

Using tarot to discover connections between the mysteries of the universe and the mysteries of the heart has led me to empowering revelations about our common human experience. These systemic methods have had implications of epic proportions in my own life, and over time, I will strive to pull back the veil to expose, not an illusion, but the genuine magic and sustainable power that we all possess for achieving our hearts desire.

With a background in the social and anthropological sciences and an insatiable hunger for relative, meaningful connections, my ongoing work to scientifically untangle the Tarot continues to lift the occult veil from its long history of use as an exploitive fortune-telling parlor trick cloaked in esoteric mystery.

My mission simple: to translate its underlying universal language and uncover the enduring truth embedded in the Tarot. This, in order to gain a better understanding of our unique, reciprocal observer/participant role in predicting, and thus shaping a more sustainable, rewarding life in the unfolding process.

The purpose: to superimpose these naturally symmetrical, geometric patterns and conspicuous absences revealed by Tarot over the living kaleidoscope of our common human and environmental experiences.

The intent: to make Tarot more accessible and resonant in the main by anyone as a valid method and practical tool for personal exploration, hope and transformation by providing empirical context for what was, is and can be a wonderful life.

I welcome and encourage comments, inquiries and feedback as we go along.
