Wow. I don't use that word lightly when it comes to tarot decks, but I said it out loud after unboxing the The AlcheMystic Woodcut Tarot by D. W. Prudence. Prudence had asked me to do a review on his deck and the title sounded interesting enough to make sure I got a copy. I tested this deck a little longer, so if you've been cruising the web in search of a TQS-original on the AlcheMystic...sorry! ...

Original, pretty (or extraordinarily gorgeous), enticing, out-of-the-box, newsworthy & educational. If any of those keywords are applicable to a deck or book that I’ve seen, chances are I want to have it (written about) on The Queen’s Sword. The Falnama Turkish Oracle cards is happily supported by at least one of those terms, which is why you’re reading this. Based ...

A playing card collector focused on high quality, born in the Indian Himalaya region - visited by Fortune tellers, Sadhus and Holy men on a frequent basis - having a wide network of Indian Tarot readers and a fascination with divination from a young age. Sounds like the recipe for a great tarot deck if such a man would ever try to create one, right? I am not saying it isn’t, but Sunish Chabba’s first try at reaching ...

Type Tarot | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review , Tarot / 19 February 2016

Here’s a treat for word-smiths and language-lovers. I had been eyeing the Type Tarot for review for a while and J Artis, designer, was happy to let my wish come true. Together with his close friend Tiffany Craig, he worked on this Tarot and I am really curious if they delivered just a novelty or also a useful deck. The Type Tarot is packed in a too big black tuck box with the logo and print on it. Not that ...

I decided to give you a golden oldie. Sure, a review site usually shows the newest releases (patience my darlings, the 2016 beauties are not yet published), but I do not want to forget about tools and books that are still useful years after their first release. So today: Everyday tarot: a choice centered book. The title of the publication, a choice centered book, becomes immediately clear in the introduction. Author Gail Fairfield sa...

Vintage Wisdom Oracle | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review / 27 January 2016

For years Tarot was my one and only love. I 'dabbled' in an oracle or two, but that was it. Until a course some time ago renewed my interest and convinced me it is a great stand-alone to get advice or 'divine'. I myself realized that in combination with Tarot it gives even more remarkable results. Oracle after Oracle now enters my cupboard. The Vintage Wisdom Oracle was the first. Did she affirm my thoughts or was this one a big disappo...
