Oracles lack a systematic approach or have too little possibilities as a divination tool. Were you nodding fervently?

Decks that are based on mythology or different cultures aren’t exactly new.  It will ask a lot of a deck designer to find an angle that'll attract an audience eager to check his or her work out, and be original and consistent at the same time. The American Gods Tarot Majors Only, a newly released and very limited edition tarot (first edition only 25 copies) from the hands of Anastasia Kashian is exactly such a deck. Here’s my review & interv...

If you want you can even use the happiest, most colourful tarot deck for shadow work, but a deck specifically made for doing so could work better. The Spirit Within Tarot by writer and tarot reader Steven Bright is a good example of that. This tarot from the Schiffer/Red Feather stall is supposed to present the shadows in your life, past, present ...

This review almost didn't exist. Last year my planning was pretty full each month and a stay on Crete led me to skip a few pages in a certain publisher’s catalogue. Luckily I was later on convinced that it was “all about the review itself and not the date it was published”. That means you’ll get to read an article on The Star Tarot deck after all and myself would not have wanted to miss it for the world! ...

Imagine you love a certain card system and basically having only just one or two decks to read with. Now, there are hundreds if not thousands of cartomancers doing that on purpose - but if you were one of them you would not be on a review site ;-). Anyway, if you are a Kipper reader that was your reality for over a hundred years (if you started eh...young). Original Kipper was THE deck and while some designers added new material in recent history...

The Promethean Oracle | Deck Tutorial | Artist’s Advice
Artist's Advice , Chakra , Decks , Mythology , Oracle / 6 March 2018

I could find few oracle decks that drew their lessons from any male presence. To me, this represents a serious lack of balance, because, like it or not, men exist, and in order to create the universal harmony so many people crave, we need balance. In creating this deck, I drew from the history and mythology of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and the Bible. I deliberately chose many of the figures because they were flawed: lionizi...
