Divination, Synchronicity, and Gypsy Fortune Tellers - ROBERT SEPEHR


The Roma people have historically been associated with fortune telling, common methods including palmistry, coffee or tea-leaf reading, crystal balls and tarot card reading among others. While the tarot was used by Romani people when telling fortunes, it was also used as a Jungian psychological apparatus capable of tapping into "absolute knowledge in the unconscious". Cartomancy is fortune-telling or divination using a deck of cards.

Iranian Women Are Rejecting Forced Hijab - ROBERT SEPEHR


A growing number of women in Iran are taking to streets to protest against mandatory hijabs. They are publicly removing their headscarves, tying them on sticks and waving them in public. After the Islamic Revolution in 1979 the government made it illegal for women to expose their hair in public and they cannot wear clothes that show off their figures. The penalties include jail time and lashes. Please share, thank you.

Voodoo Queen of New Orleans - ROBERT SEPEHR


Voodoo is as intrinsic to New Orleans culture as Mardi Gras, jazz and the beignet (French term for a pastry). Marie Catherine Laveau was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, who was renowned in New Orleans. Although some references to Marie Laveau in popular culture refer to her as a "witch," locals say she is more properly described as a 'Voodoo queen'.
