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…

Crooked Way Gothic Tarot Funding on Kickstarter

Just want to let folks know there’s a lovely new Tarot funding on Kickstarter. It’s only got nine (9) days left in the campaign as I write this, and a little over 50% funded. This is by the same person who created the Zirkus Mägi Deck, Tinker’s Damn, and the Trick or Tarot deck. I’ve…

More Decks to Come

I’ve been immersing myself in Tarot and seeking out new decks lately. It soothes my soul and keeps me sane. With any luck at all, I hope to be posting more regularly here this year. I’ve acquired some new decks and have several more coming from Kickstarter campaigns that I backed. I’ve also recently discovered…

Sad News About Malpertuis Designs

Tarot collectors may be familiar with the Malpertuis Designs site. The creator had several Tarot and Lenormand style decks up for sale. Unfortunately, I ran across this news today, which others may not have heard. I am quoting a post I found on the Tarot Collectors Forum, a site I’ve been a member of for…

The Starchild Tarot

I’m not sure how I ran across this deck. As usual I was probably just searching for Tarot decks and ran across a picture of it. This is The Starchild Tarot by Danielle Noel (as you no doubt surmised from the photo).  The artist/creator self-published it in 2014, but since I’ve had to back off…

Replenish

A good reminder that we all need to take time to refill the stores of our own mind, body and heart. People are stressed to the max these days; it’s imperative that we remember we need to take a break once in awhile, too. Don’t feel guilty if you need some time away from whatever…

Connected and Free: The Alchemist’s Oracle

To all the witches, healers, herbalists, medicine men and women, out there… To all the shaman, guides, teachers and visionaries… To all the change agents, revolutionaries and believers… This is for you. You know who you are… From the Forward. An intriguing opening. I honestly don’t remember what I was looking for online when I…
