Hermit’s Lamp Podcast: divination interviews

Canada’s Andrew Kyle McGregor isn’t just any tarot salesman. Other than offering great TdM (and tarot indie) decks in his webshop, he also offers original courses on divination and cartomancy. However, my main recommendation goes to his personal tarot knowledge and the way he uses it: McGregor’s The Hermit’s Lamp Podcast is a unique podcast within the Tarot Industry – with capitals, yep and if you subscribe to it you’ll be able to enjoy many awesome interviews with renowned names (artists, authors, readers). Along the line he’s got inside info from the recently departed Yoav Ben-Dov on creating his CBD, chatted with other great TdM-names like Camelia Elias and Enrique Enriguez and all podcasts are set up to teach you something or have you think about the topic of tarot and divination. Big divination names Of course, I am presenting this multimedia tip during Traditional Tarot Month, hence focusing on the Tarot de Marseille angle, but truly…everyone should pick out at least one or two to check out. He’s just released his 65th and in those 65 broadcasts you’ll also find talks with none other than author Barbara Moore on decks, James Wells on a journey through the Major Arcana,…

How to survive a holiday without your deck: 7 tips

First aid in tarot deck emergencies. 7 key tips on preventing divination distress.
Most readers are the same: we go on a holiday or business trip and plan the best decks to pack. That go-to tarot, that trust-y Lenormand, this new, cute oracle we bought last week, and perhaps we also had some Thoth or TdM studying to do. We soon end up with a bag full of decks and a big smile on our face: we are ready to rumble in whatever spot we land! But what if you end up on your destination sans oracle. NO trusted…

Lenormand Tutorial | DonnaLeigh’s LenormandLessons
Lenormand , Multimedia , Recommendation / 25 January 2016

Seek and ye shall find. In my case it was finding a good Lenormand tutorial. This weekend: score! I read tarot a lot and then it can be hard to put on a Lenormand-hat. In Lenormand a card can have a few meanings depending on its position in the spread, but it is the word that counts. Not the art, not the symbology on the card. A Rider is a Rider, it does not matter if in deck 1 it rains or in deck 2 he wears flaming red shoes (tarotists would definitely take that into account). Besides: it is just a new system to learn and with every new thing you need a good foundation. DonnaLeigh’s Tarot Tribe Beyond Worlds Lenormand Tutorial has a ra…
