The Druid Craft Tarot Deck Interview

A conversation on one of the tarot forums about whether the Druid Craft Tarot is "mean" prompted me to run it through my "Tell Me No Lies" personality-profile deck interview. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wsz2m38qfzgh9p1/Expanded%20New%20Deck%20Challenge%20Spread.pdf?raw=1 The top row is the Wands row, indicative of the deck’s vitality and spirit; the second row is the Cups row, showing the deck’s … Continue reading The Druid Craft Tarot Deck Interview

Example #2: Lenormand Deck “Attitude Check”

Ciro Marchetti's Gilded Reverie Lenormand has been my go-to deck since I first started studying that system of divination in 2013, but I've been less enamored of it lately. So I decided that I would bring it to my Lenormand "attitude check" spread to see what that might tell me. The Significator once again turned … Continue reading Example #2: Lenormand Deck “Attitude Check”

Example Reading: New Lenormand Deck “Attitude Check”

The Golden Lenormand Oracle is my newest Lenormand deck, so I thought I would run it through my new "attitude check" spread.

I've read with it a bit and the … Continue reading Example Reading: New Lenormand Deck “Attitude Check”

Fortunately, US Games has apparently acquired the license and has just released an admirable version of the CBD tarot at a reasonable price. I performed my "Personality Profile" deck interview spread … Continue reading The CBD Tarot de Marseille Deck Interview

The Tarot of Dreams Deck Interview

I just received Ciro Marchetti's Tarot of Dreams (the 2015 reissue) today and decided to run it thorough my "personality profile" deck interview spread. This is Ciro's second tarot project, following on the heels of his Gilded Tarot. I consider it a step up in excellence.

The Mystical Tarot Deck Interview

Few decks in recent memory have been the subject of such intense on-line debate. It is undeniably beautiful and also quirky, with ornate borders that some love and others loathe. It's a Sola-Busca-meets-RWS extravaganza that toes the interpretive line while also seeming simultaneously fresh and antique. I happen to like the blend, although I haven't … Continue reading The Mystical Tarot Deck Interview
