Robert Bonomo has spent a lifetime exploring religious and spiritual traditions, from Zen to Gnosticism until a unique world view which he calls esoteric-anarchism emerged.  While the exoteric traditions can and do give us some clues, their insistence on faith in some else's spiritualist experience leaves us without real personal knowledge or gnosis.

Astrology and Tarot, the two Hermetic Arts Robert has focused on, allow one to directly contact the archetypes that shape and charge our lives.  The synchronicities that occur between the great cosmic clock and our astrological charts and the Tarot cards can lead to sublime openings to esoteric truths.  These two very effective tools are most effective when focused on self discovery and the solution of profound dilemmas.

Robert's astrological orientation could well be described as smack in the middle of the Jungian, therapeutic approach of Liz Greene, Howard Sasportas and Dane Rudyar and the Hellenistic/Medieval revival led by the three Roberts - Hand, Schmidt and Zoller.  As a lifelong student of Jung he is very comfortable in the world of archetypes, projections and alchemy, but as a purist he has a profound respect for the deep Hellenistic roots of this esoteric art.

Robert Bonomo's latest novel is a major exploration of the 22 major Arcana of the Tarot, and he also gives introductory weekend seminars on how to read the cards.  He uses the Rider-Waite-Smith deck.


Unfailing experience of mundane events in harmony with the changes occurring in the heavens, has compelled my unwilling belief. - Johannes Kepler

Astrological Chart Reading



An astrological chart reading will take an intense look at the natal chart of the native while identifying the major themes in their life path. Strengths, challenges and key conflicts will be highlighted along with the best path toward their resolution.  Then a prognosis will be made regarding the events of the coming year, identifying key themes, opportunities and difficulties.  The session will end with a Tarot reading, where one key dilemma of the querent will be explored.  A typical session will last between 60 and 90 minutes and the readings are done through Skype.  After the reading, all charts used in the reading will be sent to the native.

The cost for an astrological chart reading is $85.  After payment is received a time will be agreed upon to do the reading.  It's necessary to know the exact time and place of birth. At least two days of preparation for a reading are necessary and it's helpful if the the native identifies which areas of their life are of most interest.

Tarot Reading


A tarot reading can be one of the most powerful ways to break through the clutches of a dilemma.  The more profound and troubling the question, the more insightful the answer.  A tarot reading shouldn't not be one's first option. If  a doubt or question still persists after deep thought and consultations with trusted and knowledgeable advisers, than the Tarot can often be the instigator of the final breakthrough.  The cards are not appropriate for very general questions about the future, or for confirmation of decisions already made. But if you are deeply troubled by a decision you must make, the power of the cards to clarify can be sublime.

The cost for a Tarot reading is $35 and typical reading usually takes about 30 minutes.  First the question is discussed and clarified, then the spread is done and the results explored.  A reading may be done without revealing the question, however, it is requested that the topic be a specific question related to decision that has not been made yet.  After the reading, a document with the spread and an overview of the reading will be sent to the querent.
