(Tarot Deck available from Cross Tarot is truly a compendium of Western Druidic lore and wisdom. This Tarot is an encyclopedic rendering of western occult knowledge rivaling such works as Crowley's 777. It is a return to the old ways, a guidepost leading the reader into the realms of the old knowledge. It is, in written and picture form, the lore of the story teller and as such the beating heart of the Western Traditions. Owen's practice weaves over fifty years and as a Tibetan monk can recite volumes of sacred teachings from memory, so also can Owen. This tarot is about Balance, not judgement of good or evil. Judgement against comes when a situation is out of balance. This tarot can be used to point to an imbalance and bring the state of affairs into equilibrium. The Cross Tarot is of necessity polytheistic (Aquarian). No single monotheistic (Piscean) good or evil force can provide the dynamism necessary for balance. The entire field of spiritual forces (Gods, Goddesses, Spirits, Forces, et cetera) are necessary to maintain the system of balances. As shown in the wisdom of this Tarot, Learning and Life are eternal properties of matter. Quotes from the Cross Tarot: Along the Path, the questor would find animals, minerals and plants; along with spiritual forces to which they relate. Deities are to be met within animals, minerals and plants. Especially, the Plant Kingdom gives a way the deities might be communicated with, as many of the deities, at times, take plant forms. As Jacob Grimm has said, the history of European Spirituality would; in many ways, resemble the history of trees.Small bits of herb might cause a great event to take place. A bit of herb might be hidden in the room of a subject to cause that person to fall in love. Media used herbs to stop the flow of rivers and to check the flight of stars...The wheels of cause and effect tie the trees, even to the smallest of herbs, with the great turnings of the starry heavens. Subtle connections between an herb and a distant star can throw the balance of an event toward one direction or another. It is said, "Every herb knows her loving star."
