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….

Efflorescent Tarot

I ran across this on Etsy way back in May, but at the time there was only a black & white version available.  While I love b&w decks, I was enchanted by the images of colored cards that were posted at the time. I think the creator had printed some colored decks, but they were…

Celestial Stick People Tarot

I ran across this deck on The Gamecrafter, and it looked so unusual, well, of course I had to have it! There weren’t many photos online there, but enough to intrigue me. (Aeclectic.net has more, but for some reason it didn’t occur to me to check there before ordering.) I ordered it May 18, and…

Alice Tarot

This deck was in the works for years, and for years eagerly anticipated by dedicated Baba Studio fans, and Tarot enthusiasts in general. So what do we have? One of the most exquisite decks ever created. It’s like nothing else out there. The artwork is all original, based on the books by Lewis Carroll, and…

Tarot of the Hidden Realm

OK YES. I treated myself to a new Tarot deck. I had a couple small things to get from Amazon (new SD cards for my camera, and a small gift for someone) which didn’t amount to much, so to get the free shipping now that they’ve raised the minimum to $35… well, what could I…

The Wild Unknown

Here is an extraordinary deck I’ve had my eye on for some time but was unable to get until recently. Drawn by artist Kim Krans, The Wild Unknown is like no other deck I’ve ever seen. It comes in this incredibly sturdy box. The fit of the top is quite snug, took me a little…

Tarot of the Spirit

I haven’t been hobnobbing with the Tarot community as much this year as I would have liked and I guess as a result, this escaped my notice until a few weeks ago. This deck has been on my “must have” list for years, literally, but as it was out of print for some time, the…
