Books That Make You See into Your Future with Guest Mark Horn 

Knowing our path, getting insights into the future, and finding truth are all things that intrigue us. Who wouldn’t love to know the winning lottery numbers, after all? But what if there is something, something deeper, in uncovering our personal journey into the future? 

Let’s take a closer look at how Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and the ancient Kabbala have an underlying connection in this interview with author Mark Horn. Host Desireé Duffy discusses the significance of the Tarot and a practice known as “counting the Omer”.   

Can we pull from mystical practices associated with the Tarot and Kabbala in an effort to find revelations and personal insights or growth? Is it okay to uncover our destiny? How can we actually do this? 

Mark Horn’s book is called Tarot and the Gates of Life. It integrates the Tarot and Kabbalistic traditions in counting the Omer and is a guide that anyone can easily learn to use. Plus, it can help with meditation, plus, help in discovering inner truths and insights that we all need in uncovering our life’s personal journey.  

Author Mark Horn has studied Kabbalah with academic, religious, and practical teachers, and he also studied Tarot with many of today’s leading teachers in that area. His writing has appeared in The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and Metrosource. A teacher of Kabbalistic Tarot, he lives in New York City.
