About me

James WarlockHi there.  I'm a Tarot Reader, Hypnotherapist and now Blogger based in West London.  I've been using the Tarot for about 20 years now, and doing professional readings since 2004. I've started using the Tarot when I realised it worked – really worked – and I've been rather fascinated by that fact ever since.

My background is actually scientific – I have a degree in Physics – which may explain why I became so fascinated with the Tarot – this kind of thing isn't supposed to work you know.  We don't have an explanation.  And yet it really does work, and it really is very useful.

When I first realised that Weird Shit was real – really real, it was going on all over the place and most people just didn't talk about it, or chose not to notice – I began trying to find out as much about it as I could (you can read about what, exactly, I mean by the term weirdshit here).  But I quickly became frustrated with the 'woolly thinking' and, frankly, the amount of bullshit that was present in so much of the spiritual/magical/occult world. I developed the '90% bullshit' rule – it struck me that 90% of everything written about Weird Shit was going to be Bullshit. I later renamed this the '95% bullshit' rule.

Hence, in my own small way, I'm trying to do my bit to improve the quality of thinking, writing and discussion about spirituality and magick. The latest step in this is my Blog where I'm writing about my own experiences of magick, weirdshit and the Tarot.  I would never claim to know The Answer to anything, but I'm trying to express my views and experiences as clearly as possible.  The spiritual, and particularly the magickal, community can be an insular lot, not prone to sharing our experiences (particularly those things that don't go so well or didn't work out as we intended) – but through sharing and comparing we learn more and perhaps avoid the mistakes of others.  If my blog can help with that at all it would make me quite satisfied.
