“Marion: What is all this? What's going on?
Clint: The same thing that's always going on. The end of the world.”
Rachel Pollack

“To learn to play seriously is one of the great secrets of spiritual exploration.”
Rachel Pollack, The Forest of Souls: A Walk Through the Tarot

“Do not confuse the 'subconscious' with the 'unconscious', whose attributes include courage as well as true knowledge. A great deal of confusion has resulted from the use of these two terms as synonymous. I am using the term 'subconscious' here to stand for material -desires, anxieties, fears, hopes - repressed by the conscious mind as it deals with the outer realities of life. 'Unconscious' means the absic energy of life, that area of being beyond the ego. The subconscious, despite its hidden qualities, is really an extension of the ego. In a sense, it embodies the ego's absolute domain, that realm where it makes no compromises with reality. Because it does not concern itself with consequences the subconscious will walk you in front of a truck to avoid an unpleasant conversation. The unconscious on the other hand, balances and supports us by joining us to the great surge of life beyond our individual selves. The Hanged Man in the Major Arcana gives us a powerful image of this vital connection.”
Rachel Pollack, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom: A Book of Tarot
