Tarot of the Imagination (2 decks)
Decks , Review , Tarot / 12 November 2015

As a tarot collector it’s always a pleasure when you’re able to buy a deck that is out-of-print. Especially if you haven’t been reading since the 70s or live in an environment where non-mainstream decks aren’t easy to obtain, chances are there are a lot of Tarots that later on catch your fancy but that are simply no longer available. Unless you are willing to pay a handsome sum of course. Quite recently I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Tarocchi dell’ Immaginario – also called Tarot of the Imagination -by Ferenc Pinter. So lucky, I got the Italian Majors only edition and the full 78 Tarot of the Imagination cards from the English edition. And OOP or not, this deck is worth a review. The Majors only version (1991) of Tarot of the Imagination was created in a period that…

The Angel Tarot | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 8 November 2015

Doreen Virtue. A name (or practically institute) you either love or hate. Whatever side you’re on, her decks tend to bring out some pretty spicy discussions on the average forum.

Decks , Review , Tarot / 6 November 2015

I felt a bit disheartened when I first read about the ominous title Tarot Illuminati.

Until the postman actually arrived with the package and I forgot all about secret organizations. I won’t say it is ‘the deck to rule them all’, but it definitely…

Daily guidance from your angels
Decks , Oracle , Review / 1 November 2015

Doreen Virtue is mostly known for her oracle decks and especially ones that have a link to angels and other benevolent creatures and spirits. The 44-card counting oracle deck Daily Guidance from your Angels is no exception. But is it truly an oracle you could use for divination and advice or is it -since we are talking about daily messages – more suitable for affirmations, mediation or when you’re in dire need of an uplifting Angel whisper?

The Llewellyn Tarot | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 28 October 2015

There are decks, that once you open that box and hold the cards in your hand something special happens. It doesn’t occur often, even if you have a huge collection, but when it does a deck like that becomes the go-to-wonder or the answer to ‘what would you take with you if you got stranded on a deserted island’. The Llewellyn deck by Anna-Marie Ferguson is such a deck for me and if you’re a fan of RWS-inspired tarot cards you should definitely check…
