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…

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…

To Trim, or Not To Trim

I’ve been watching a bunch of videos on trimming decks. There are so many decks to which publishers seem to insist on adding very wide borders, maybe to increase the overall size of the card. Do they think that makes it more desirable? I don’t know. Nobody needs or wants 1/2″ borders on cards. Two…

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…

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…

Staying Positive

Moving right along here with my Whispers of Healing oracle deck, I pulled this card a couple days ago. The day after that, I pulled three cards from the Victorian Romantic Tarot I think they’re telling me the same thing. So here’s the story: I started at the job I’m in now a little over…
