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 ...

Richard Hartnett | Myth vlog
Multimedia , Mythology , Review / 7 November 2015

Myths and mythology linked to daily life. Ask Richard Hartnett and he’ll do it for you. And there’s even tarot in there! Quantum Spirituality just started with these video’s on myth but I’ve already seen two interesting vlogs, about vampires and zombies. Food for thought in a lecture-ish way. He reminds me of one of my old history professors, but don’t worry; not snoring-inducing. He also uses loads of othe...

Tarot Illuminati | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 6 November 2015

I felt a bit disheartened when I first read about the ominous title Tarot Illuminati. While I had heard whispers it was going to be an amazing deck, that title unfortunately brought about such 'conspiracy theorist' connotations I was afraid this would actually solidify thoughts that tarot readers are a vague, untrustworthy kind with scary tools to boot. Until the postman actually arrived with the package and I forgot all about secret or...

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 whis...

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 sho...
