Years ago tarot designer MM Meleen started a project called Tabula Mundi. It was supposed to be a colored deck, but a small group of fans convinced her to release a black and white version first. That deck, the Tabula Mundi Nox et Lux now has a very large group of fans and it scored high in reviews, including mine. I wasn't sure if the colored version, the Colores Arcus, [the original project] should get its own review. After all, how much dif...

Ever since I got to review the Gravenchase Lenormand by Lynyrd-Jym Narciso Lenormand has demanded a steady percentage of my cartomancy activities. So it was great that Mr. Paraluman -Narciso's studio name- had another deck up his sleeve. Totally different, but such an ideal and nice beginners tool, that it has been my trusted sidekick since the moment it arrived. Join me on my Anino Lenormand -tour!

The Minchiate Tarocchi is one of those decks that seems to be acquired later in one’s tarot life. When you can read with more systems or when a decent appetite for traditional decks has been developed. Just like a lot of readers I figured the Minchiate Tarot decks were collector’s items. With all those cards and differences it could not be a reading deck, right? This review, particularly of the Il Meneghello Minchiate Fiorentine Etruria from 1...

Their 2016 Pagan Otherworlds Tarot and Invited Artist line are good examples and the in 2018 to be released Supra Oracle promises the same. So when I found out that artist duo Linnea & Peter released a Modern Tarot de Marseille during my Traditional Tarot month I was super excited. Let’s see if their slightly spicy TdM called Eros: Garden of Love Tarot is quality too. Uusi has a name to uphold when it comes to their card

In this TdM month, named Traditional Tarot with a Twist, I’ll review several TdM’s & Tarocchi’s, traditional reproductions or reinterpretations that can be recognized as both tarot and Marseille/Ancient Italian-like. However, their deviations and differences, might invite discussion on their pattern of ‘true’ TdM/Tarocchi-ness. Regardless, they are all unique and gorgeous in their own way. 1.

The Journey | Brandon Bays | Review
Books , Review / 26 October 2015

When a book is touching on healing serious psychical illnesses controversy comes into play. That is definitely the case with Brandon Bays’ book The Journey. The Journey is no longer a story about a miraculous healing of a tumor but has also become a therapy on to itself. So how to read a book like that? As the writings of a possibly inspirational woman or as one who wants to sell a course, even if that course or therapy could be bene...

Upcoming: review Marchetti’s animated Kipper oracle
News , Oracle / 20 October 2015

Ciro Marchetti has a new deck coming out at the end of October, so the ones who ordered can expect a deck around the beginning of November. He's designed an oracle deck based on the German system of Kipper cards. Marchetti's kept the main system and numbering but added a few cards. Also, the visual setting is in the Victorian age. The designer has done something remarkable though; if you hold your smartphone over a card you'll get to...
