“How can I explain to the new tarot enthusiast the connection between the water on the six of swords and the woman sitting before me who lost a small child by drowning decades ago? What miracle allows the human mind to be inspired to see a vision of this event triggered only from the image on a small paper card? Personal interpretation– Intuitive Reading– will be your key to successfully reading the tarot.”

I’ve been finding and watching Youtube videos on both Black-eyed Children and Shadow People, and let me warn you if you’re easily spooked, watching these videos (or listening to these podcasts) when you’re home alone on a dark and stormy night (or any night) might leave you more than a little uneasy. But it’s fascinating. For anyone who’s never heard of either one of these paranormal phenomena, in a nutshell, here’s what they are ~
Black-Eyed Children…(sometimes called Bek) are young people, often children, with eyes that are solid black with no differentiation between sclera, pupil, or iris, and are occasionally reported to have blue or bluish tinted skin like that of a corpse. Those who report encounters with them often feel that the children were somehow supernatural and extremely dangerous though they could not explain why.
Often they can be seen playing games and singing the nursery songs Old Man Long Legs or He Jumped into a Bramble Bush.
They are usually near abandoned or deserted areas. Sometimes, the reports talk of them appearing at one’s doorstep- usually alone or in a pair. They appear to be unusually confident, yet shy children who avoid your gaze and look down, hiding their eyes, but speaking with an eloquence far beyond their apparent age.
Shadow people appear just as their name describes them, as faceless human shadow forms.
Some common features of shadow people are:
- A shape that is generally male in appearance
- They are aware of us and react to our observing them
- The typical shadow person is tall, ranging from about 6′ to 7′
- Very often they seem to be wrapped in a cloak or large old fashioned cloak
- Hats are not uncommon
- Their appearance has depth to it, unlike a shadow cast on a wall that is flat
- Quite typically they have no visible eyes, but some will have glowing red eyes
- Shadow people are rarely reported to have spoken or tried to communicate
- Physical objects seem to not matter to them and they can walk through walls
- Can have a demonic shape and demeanor
If you love creepy fascinating paranormal phenomena, I’m betting you’re still with me after reading the definitions of these etheric mysterious creatures. Now the fun stuff. I’m posting some of the videos that I’ve been watching, and the two I’m posting here today are radio podcasts with Art Bell. I’d love to hear YOUR perspective on these topics! Feel free to leave comments below. Have you had a personal experience with either one of these entities? Do you have a theory about what they are?
Enjoy!… And keep the lights on. 🙂

Aquarius ~ 10/Swords (reversed)
There’s nothing worse than being nailed to the wall, other than being pinned down and cornered to do something you were hoping to get out of, or being called out on the rug to explain yourself or your actions– and this last one is going to be a spine tingling adrenalin rush experience for some of you Aquarians. This is always a difficult card when it rears it’s ugly head, and for many of you, you didn’t see this coming (until now). The best thing about this card is that it’s reversed. Many of you are going to claw your way out of an unpleasant confrontation, or situation, and find solid footing once more. Kiss the ground when you get there, and make sure this doesn’t happen again, do what you have to do, change what you have to change.
Capricorn ~ King/Swords (reversed)
Something is left unsaid. Communication is not happening, and it has to be resolved before it’s too late. There are reasons and ways in which things that need to be said, may never be heard. Make sure you have no regrets. Don’t be afraid of sounding silly, don’t be afraid to face disagreement, don’t be afraid to be wrong, don’t gloat if you are right. The words lay like a choking parcel of food caught in the throat. Don’t swallow them. Open your mouth and set them free, along with your conscience, your soul, and your peace of mind.
Pisces ~ 3/Swords
Some of you may face heartbreak or disappointment. Lessons are learned, wounds will heal. Life will pick you back up and carry you forward on your path, mercilessly marching you towards new horizons and experiences and awakenings. What we learn from heartbreak, pain, and sorrow is that it’s not the end, but only a pivotal point on our journey. Be strong, ride the waves, wait out the storm. Calm seas and peace await once the clouds have parted.
Aries ~ The Tower
Many of you are going to be called upon to endure great changes and disruptions in your life. For some it may be connected to relationships and family, for others it could be jobs and careers, and for still others it will be something unique to you and your personal experience, earth-shattering, life-changing. Oh, how we fight major life transitions, kicking and screaming our way through the storm, even when we know that things will be better when we reach the other side. Many of you Aries will be put to the test, stretched beyond your limits, tried by fire, tempered like steel. This is where you find out how strong you really are.
Taurus ~ Temperance (reversed)
This card is all about balance in our lives, and since it’s standing on it’s head for you, there’s a problem in this area. Many of you may find yourselves feeling up in the air, either overwhelmed with work, or not getting enough hours; some of you may be experiencing unexpected upsets with health issues, which so often kicks our lives out of balance on a variety of levels. You’re like a cat right now, Taurus, in free-fall. You’re going to have to figure out what you have to do to turn yourself around so that you land on your feet.
Gemini ~ Knight/Cups (reversed)
For some Gemini, the Knight-in-Shining Armor fairytale is going to remain a myth. For some of you this may mean that you have unrealistic expectations, and if you don’t lower the bar to a more human level, no one is going to pass the test, no one is going to be quite good enough. Developing a successful relationship with someone means that you learn to accept their very human flaws (This doesn’t mean that we “settle” for losers, which is the flip side of this coin.). It means that human beings aren’t perfect, and everyone has their own little quirks; and if we meet someone and fall in love, you learn to accept the WHOLE person, quirks included.
Cancer ~ 7/Cups (reversed)
Many of you Cancers will be making very important decisions during this period, and some of you will not be facing all the facts and may even be colorizing your choices and decisions with rosy glasses and less than a solid grip on reality. Be sure to honestly look at all the questions in order to find all the answers. Study the choices and brutally asses whether you can make them work in the real world. In order to have a successful game plan, you have to have a logical and realistic course of action. Now, go for it, Cancer!
Leo ~ 4/Pentacles (reversed)
Many of you Leos may have issues coming up that you’ll find rather challenging during this period, and some of these issues will involve relinquishing control (a horror scenario for strong and independent Leo). You may also be faced with unexpected financial circumstances that require substantial payments, which means breaking into savings, which means parting with your dearly beloved and precious golden coins. I know, Leo, you lovingly tend your growing nest egg and having to slice it open and remove a chunk is going to be difficult and unpleasant. Never fear, once this issue is resolved, life will resume as before.
Virgo ~ The Moon (reversed)
You will find yourself surrounded by deception. Either someone isn’t being honest with you, or you are not being honest with yourself. Some Virgos might feel that they’ve entered the twilight zone. There’s a very thin line between reality and fantasy, and when you find yourself in an extremely stressful unpleasant situation, it can make recognizing this line very difficult, which can make it dangerous on a variety of levels. During this time, seek out individuals, spiritual practices, or professionals to help you find the answers you need. It’s not a sign of weakness to seek help making right decisions, or getting through traumatic or challenging circumstances.
Libra ~ Princess/Pentacles
Messages and answers to financial issues will be forthcoming in a very timely manner. Some of you Libras will discover previously unknown facts, or knowledge, that will benefit upcoming decisions and will also shed light on circumstances, or people, surrounding you. Knowledge is power, the more you have, the stronger you’ll be. There’s s solitary flair about many of you Libras, intent on personal self-discovery, with a renewed interest in old and unfinished projects. Make your own kind of magic during this period.
Scorpio ~ 6/Pentacles
“The more the merrier” will be your mantra at this time, Scorpio. Where before there was not enough, now you will have a surplus. However, don’t let your guard down, don’t waste precious time or opportunities that come your way. Continue this forward progression with right action, solid common sense, determination, and a strong work ethic. It’s time for many Scorpios to climb the ladder to success. We so often talk about setting goals, but we so seldom stop and relish the accomplishment of meeting those goals. Do this, Scorpio.
Sagittarius ~ Knight/Pentacles
For some of you Sagittarians bouncing merrily through this year, you’re going to find yourself stopped short by the need for quiet practicality. Solid common sense, thorough and slow thought processes to work through an issue, are going to assure your happiness continues through 2017. Don’t be rushed into making any decisions. Remember, the show can’t go on until you say it does. The wonderful grounding aspect of this Knight will bode you well, reconnecting you to Earth energy and the solidity you need at this time.
