Randomness and Tarot

I recently finished reading The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives by Leonard Mlodinow. In it, he shows how our lives are ruled by random chance, and talks about the statistics and theories that rule this randomness. I found this book very interesting. Mlodinow did a great job of providing examples of how we […]

More Thoughts on the Seeker

Not surprisingly, I’m a bit behind when it comes to the exercises with the Gaian Tarot and the online community. When you have a toddler, life isn’t always what you’d like it to be. And, yeah, that is a bit of an excuse, but it is also true. Anyway, today I am having a bit […]


Fear of the Seeker

I recently joined the Gaian Tarot Circle, an online community for Joanne Powell-Colbert’s wonderful Gaian Tarot deck. And, although I have hardly dived into it, I already have this feeling of community. I know all the people there love this deck at least as much as I do, and that they are all intent on […]

Moving Through the Tarot: Chariot to Strength

There is something about the images on Tarot cards that enchants me.  It doesn’t matter which deck, the images still call to me, daring me to discover their secrets, and my own. Every time I look at a deck, I learn something new. Today, I was thinking about The Chariot and Strength. I feel that […]

Anubis Oracle, Tell Me True

Back in December, I signed up for a free teleconference about an oracle deck I had picked up a little while before. The deck is The Anubis Oracle, by Nicky Scully and Star Wolf, illustrated by Kris Waldherr (who created The Goddess Tarot and The Lover’s Path Tarot).  I was really interested to hear what […]

Gaian Tarot in 2012

Joanna over at the Gaian Tarot Artist Journal announced yesterday that she has a publishing contract for her wonderful deck: Gaian Tarot Publishing News. The deck is on tap to be published by Llewellyn in 2012.  I sincerely hope they do a good job on this lovely deck.  But, for those who don’t want to […]

Uncle Al on Tarot

Lately I’ve been reading biographies of Aleister Crowley in an attempt to better understand the man who had a great influence on both the modern Western Mystery Tradition and on Tarot.  Of the three books I read, the last, Do What Thou Wilt: A Life of Aleister Crowley by Lawrence Sutin, was really the only […]

Touchstone Tarot is Coming!

The Touchstone Tarot is now available for pre-order through The Tarot Connection Store. (I believe Tarot Garden will be taking pre-orders.) It is a limited edition of 500 decks, which include a signed title card and a lovely handmade bag. The cars will be 3″ x 4″, a great size, I think. While the price […]

Tarot Decks to Lust After

My interest in Tarot is probably well known to all readers of my blog. For those who don’t know, I’ve been reading Tarot off and on for over 15 years. I’m going through one of my more off than on periods right now, mostly because taking care of little Baby C (now just over 5 […]
