We are each free to access it at our own discretion and for whatever ethical purpose we choose.

The detailed 160-page companion book offers plenty of information and ideas to get users started, but it won’t take long for the creatures on the cards to take over and lead the reader through a personal journey to the other dimensions.

Deck of Interest—Wisdom of the Oracle

Nov 17 2015

Hay House

What does the oracle want to say to you?

Colette Baron-Reid brought each of these 52 gilt-edged cards to life when the oracle let her know that it was time for them to be born. That oracle speaks from somewhere within each card. Melding symbolism from the I-Ching, runes, and tarot cards, as well as other divination systems, Baron-Reid has taken great care to insure that the oracle’s voice will be heard clearly and truthfully. She tells us that she wants the deck to engage us in sacred conversation.

Jena DellaGrottaglia’s Alice-in-Wonderland-meets-Salvador-Dali illustrations create an environment for the oracle that readers can enter and explore. The cards are gently colored with a misty tone to them, but the symbolism is complex and tightly-woven together to form a complete world that resonates as one. The images will call readers back again and again to discover new insights and guidance.

Baron-Reid’s 208-page companion book is beautifully written and full of ancient wisdom presented in a new and inspiring manner. This deck is an elegant standout that lives up to its title. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Pagan Ways Tarot

Aug 07 2015

Schiffer Publishing

What’s new in nature?

These 78 vibrantly-colored images capture the energy and tradition of nature-based spirituality and bring the related gods, goddesses, nature spirits, and elemental essences into the modern era. The illustrations are bold, with almost theatrical costumes and settings. The goddess Empanada becomes the woman in the golden robe. The god Herne becomes stability of creation. Phaedra becomes the apathetic woman by the sea.

In the 190-page, full-color companion book Anna Franklin shares the symbolism and insight from her decades-long practice as a pagan priestess. You can explore the meaning behind the pictures as much or as little as you choose. Regardless, these images are so unique and show-stopping that no one will be able to dismiss this as “for pagans only”.

The book contains upright and reversed meanings for each card but seasoned card readers will find that they need no help in finding intuitive associations for these striking cards. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Book of Interest—Secrets of the Waite-Smith Tarot

Jul 11 2015

Llewellyn Publications

The Rider-Waite tarot deck is legend. It has been a best-seller for decades. When I was shopping for my first tarot deck in the early 70’s, it was one of only a few decks available for sale in mainstream commercial markets.

As I began to study Western Hermetic Mystery traditions, the symbolism incorporated in the cards came to life for me and aided me on my course of study. Like most people, I thought of Pamela Coleman Smith as a somewhat naive technician, carrying out A.E. Waite’s will. As feminine spiritual power continues to gain intellectual strength in metaphysics, the truth has begun to come out.

Smith, it appears, was not a choice that Waite made lightly. He picked an artist with global roots (she spent large chunks of time in Jamaica in her childhood), who pursued initiation in the Order of the Golden Dawn, and clearly was a sophisticated channel by the time she was creating this landmark deck of tarot cards. Free-spirited, unmarried, and living a bohemian lifestyle, she was thoroughly knowledgeable about music, theatre, and dance in London. All of these artistic elements were incorporated into her drawings as she rendered the import of the lower arcana and the dense symbolism of the major arcana.

We will never know how much of the extraordinary symbolism of this deck should be credited to Waite and how much Smith initiated on her own. What is clear is that the combination of superior transcendent minds created a tool that spans the generations. We owe a great debt to Katz and Goodwin for filling in as many of the blanks as they have. This is a very interesting and enlightening tome complete with new insight about the card meanings.

How do you take flight?

Tarot superstar Lisa Hunt has joined forces with Lesley Morrison to merge the human spirit with nature’s winged spirits. Her 39 subtlety dynamic watercolors pay homage to the creatures sometimes referred to as the messengers of God.
