29 Tarot Spreads in 29 Days

Over on my YouTube channel, I participated in Ethony’s #31DaysofTarot2020 challenge, somewhat successfully, and now in February I’m going to participate as much as possible with DeeVination’s #29TarotSpreadsin29Days hashtag. I won’t call this one a “challenge.” It’s more low-key than that. But it’s a good way to hone your reading skills, and a good excuse…

78 Tarot Elemental – Deck Interview

A deck I backed on Kickstarter arrived the other day. The next entry from the 78Tarot collective, produced and coordinated by Kayti Welsh-Stewart with assistance from Joanna Nelson, book by Trish Sullivan, and created by 81 artists. I did a walkthrough video on my YouTube channel, which you can see here: I have to admit…

The Tarot of Pixie’s People Kickstarter

This is just a little plug for this Kickstarter that I’m backing, and it doesn’t seem to be getting much traction. If you follow me on YouTube, you will probably have seen the video I did of the Stone Marseille Tarot deck by Lily Stone. It’s a beautifully done deck. If, however, Tarot de Marseille…

My Universe and Your Universe

This is one of those things that I should probably just keep to myself but it’s bugging me and I need to get it out. Consider it an addendum to my post on spiritual shaming. There’s a new-ish tarot deck that’s been making the rounds on YouTube and elsewhere whose creator made some odd, and…

A Fistful of Decks

I suddenly find myself with so many new Tarot decks that I’ve barely had time to look at most of them. Some are still in the envelopes they arrived in, I haven’t even had time to open them. I’m going to try to get some reviews up here for those who prefer to just read…

Branching Out to YouTube

Just a quick note that I’ve started a YouTube channel, Souls Journey, on Tarot and related topics. There are only 5 videos so far: 4 Tarot unboxings and one subscription box (Sabbat Box) opening. I’m not the most polished presenter, being more a writer than performer, and I’m still working on exactly how to do…

Darker Moods Tarot

So many decks, so little time! I know there are people out there who do not care for the original RWS coloring, however inexplicable that may be (tongue firmly in cheek, everyone’s entitled to like what they like for whatever reason!) and there have been many recolored versions of the deck: Carol Herzer’s Illuminated Tarot…

Some Rider-Waite-Smith Geekery

Discovering the world of Tarot YouTubers has been incredibly dangerous for my bank account. But by gum, it’s damned good to find other Tarot-obsessives. I don’t know anyone in real life who reads Tarot, so there’s no one to talk with about it. Seems like there are a lot of us in the same boat….

New Deck Interview – Naked Heart Tarot

I have never done one of these, but with this deck I really wanted to. This is the Naked Heart Tarot by Jillian C. Wilde. I used the layout and position meanings from Katey Flowers, it hits all the points I’m interested in. What are you here to teach me? Hilariously I got the same…

Tarot and Authenticity

I started reading Tarot back in the early 1970s when I was a young teen, back in the day when there were hardly any decks available apart from the Waite-Smith, and the Thoth (although that was much harder to come by), but it wasn’t long before many more decks began to appear. Tarot of the…
