Book of Interest—365 Tarot Spells

May 17 2016

Llewellyn Publications

Can the tarot change your life?

Sasha Graham began her journey into the magical world of tarot at her kitchen table with Jenina Renee’s book Tarot Spells. Once she was able to connect with sacred space, she found the walls of her kitchen confining and took her work outdoors, embracing the lessons of the natural world. Nature combined with tarot taught her a lot. She’s sharing what she learned in this exciting new book.

Graham tells us that there are three components of spellcasting: desire, feeling, and action. She points out that every one’s connection to the magical realm is unique. While most people associate magic with the natural world, Graham says that the tarot cards offer a special metaphysical gateway into the magical realm through our individual consciousness. Relying on powerful symbols and archetypes, the world of tarot connects us to the wisdom of our Higher Self and beyond.

Graham has created 365 magical tarot spells, one for each day of the year, and has described them in detail for readers. She includes ingredients, method, visualization, meditation, a special incantation, and an illustration of the associated tarot card. The instructions are beginner-friendly yet sophisticated enough to capture the attention of experienced tarot/magical practitioners. SHOP FOR THE BOOK

Deck of Interest—The Angel Oracle

Apr 18 2016

Connections Book Publishing

How much influence do angels have in your life?

Angels, messengers of the gods, have been a trustworthy and comforting link between humans and heaven since the earliest recorded times. They have appeared in some form in almost every culture since the beginning of recorded history. The Angel Oracle brings the traditions of all those millennia into one box that gives readers the ability to call on the power of these elevated spirit beings and to ask for their help, and their insight, in their daily lives.

The 36 angel cards capture the power, love, and inspiration of these extraordinary spirit beings. The illustrations and the symbolism they contain harken back to familiar depictions of these heavenly entities but with subtle updates. Metatron gives readers a conspiratorial look from his stately pose on a cloud. The Angel of Forgiveness has a decidedly flirty, albeit innocent, air about her. And Uriel looks as if he’s about to break into a happy dance. It’s a sign that these angels are here to interact with us. Wauters captivating 112-page hardcover book summarizes the most relevant existing literature regarding angels but tells readers that their personal experience is more valuable than anything they will read. Each card carries an affirmation to help readers connect with the angelic energy it represents. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Book of Interest—Deviant Moon Tarot

Mar 22 2016

U.S. Games Systems Inc.

Does the moon speak to you?

Never before has the tale of discovering tarot, from the sighting of a small box in a shopping mall to the creation of one of the most successful and inventive decks of all time, been recounted in such detail and with such animation. From the moment he talked his parents into buying him that first tarot deck, Valenza practiced recreating the cards. He arrived at adolescence with advanced drawing and interpretative skills. By the age of 18, he had created the first thirteen Deviant Moon tarot cards. Then, as he matured and his style began to morph and his interests changed, he put those first thirteen cards away and didn’t return to them until 2004. When he did reconnect to the deck, it began to come to life in an extraordinary way. Digitally merging the figures with his extensive photography collection, the current version of the Deviant Moon tarot was born.

Beautifully printed, this book is a visual feast as well as a stellar documentation of the creative process. After telling us his story, Valenza takes us on a personal tour through the deck. Each card is reproduced as a full page illustration. Valenza tells us how he interprets the card and gives us a peek at how the card came to life by sharing preliminary sketches and reference material with us. Tarot lovers, artists, or those who are curious about creative esoteric reality will find this a very special treasure indeed. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—First Light Tarot

Mar 12 2016

Schiffer Publishing

What will you find in outer space?

Drawing on the beautiful images sent back to earth by the Hubble telescope, this  highly inventive new deck of oracle cards merges astrology, numerology, and the Major Arcana of traditional tarot cards with those images. A second set of cards uses the images to communicate intuitive guidance sent to earth from the cosmos. Finally, a third set of cards provides a framework for using the first two sets of cards to divine information in response to specific inquiries.

The result is that, even with no previous experience, it is easy to ask this deck for answers. Just pick the Spread card that states your intention (Why is This Happening?, First Step, Obstacles, etc.). Then shuffle the remaining cards and pull one from the deck (Major Arcana cards or Insight cards) to place on top of the Spread card. Pull additional cards as you desire, remembering to factor in the number on the cards you choose and the astrological designation if available. Key words appear on the front of each card for quick-start readings. The companion book provides additional suggested interpretation. Two Wild Spread cards are included which allow users to craft their own specific questions as they become more advanced.

The elegantly-boxed set includes 22 Major Arcana cards, 22 channeled Insight cards, 22 Spread cards, a 96-page full-color companion book, and a 4-page quick reference chart. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Tarot of Marseille

Feb 09 2016

Lo Scarabeo

What is the power of the Tarot of Marseille?

This revitalized version of Claude Burdel’s classic 1751 French tarot deck wasn’t reproduced as an exact replica of the earliest decks. Instead the colors have been restored to their original intensity and hue, the background has been cleaned up, and the images have been sharpened. The result is a deck containing long-standing, powerful esoteric symbols and icons created with modern technological quality.

Because Marseille became the manufacturing center of high quality, low cost tarot decks in the 18th Century, the symbolism used in those 78-card decks became the standard for decks everywhere and was carried forward into current times. These images have been used for divination for hundreds of years and thus have acquired an astral presence which this deck definitely taps into. The fact that the Minor Arcana contains numerological representations of the four suits, rather than pictorial illustrations as in the Rider-Waite deck, means that it requires additional engagement by the reader to unlock its secrets. It’s a perfect deck for those interested in numerology and the symbolism of the four directions. The boldness of the Major Arcana imagery provides easy entreé to the beginner, and the concise instruction book will give them the basic interpretations they will need to get started. It’s a must-have for every serious student of tarot. SHOP FOR THE DECK
