Book of Seshet | Companion Rosetta Tarot | Review
Books , Review , Tarot , Thoth / 27 May 2017

Every deck that goes a little deeper than merely being a clone of TdM, Thoth or WCS deserves a decent companion. But unfortunately there aren’t many good ones out there. Book of Seshet is one of the exceptions. This guidebook, written for The Rosetta Tarot by MM Meleen, also happens to offer slightly more if you’re into Golden Dawn and Thoth.

Seeing a new Meleen deck come to life is always a happy time for this reviewer, but a reprint of an older deck can be just as much fun. Especially when said designer promises to give it a new twist and fix the few things that might have kept buyers away. So, here’s my review of the Rosetta Tarot. Or better said: Rosetta Tarot Papyrus Edition

New: Rosetta Tarot Papyrus edition | Thoth
News , Tarot , Thoth / 10 February 2017

I don’t believe it is a huge secret I am a fan of MM Meleen’s work. And even if you are not or don’t like Golden Dawn inspired decks, you most likely can agree with me she has an enormous amount of creativity and a vast knowledge of everything esoteric and tarot.

Books , Review , Tarot / 4 December 2016

For years it was obvious which book to read if you wanted the ins and outs on reading tarot for yourself. Mary K Greer’s very similary titled workbook was the answer. Despite the fact the question “Am I allowed to read tarot fo myself” is still a huge one, Greer set a standard. And a difficult example to follow. Until now perhaps. With “Tarot for One. The art of reading for yourself”…

Book M: Liber Mundi | Review
Books , Decks , Review , Tarot / 5 March 2016

Companion books usually leave a lot to desire. We don’t call them little white booklets for nothing; they are hardly deserving of the name book and we usually crave lots more information when it is a deck that has a lot of symbolism or a consistent theme. Luckily there are decks where a companion book can be bought separately. Book M: Liber Mundi is one of those, and belongs to the Tabula Mundi nox et lux. My job to see if Book M…
