Chris Butler, known from the Gay Tarot, recently published his newest title The Healing Tarot with Lo Scarabeo. I had been eagerly awaiting my copy for a while, because I wanted to know if the premise of working with light & shadows and portals to a healing place remained simply a pretty but not entirely working concept, or would made for an effective tarot deck. Actually it wasn’t at all what I’d expected…

Tarot of Bones | Review
Decks , Review , Tarot / 6 July 2017

It is always great to be able to review a deck that shows the amount of work the designer has put into it and that also promises to be different than others…but still a tarot.
The Tarot of Bones is a combination of tarot structure and bone divination. According to its designer “a different kind of beast”.  Curious, I ‘cast the lot’, and here’s my conclusion.

Fortune Telling by Tarot Cards | Book review
Books , Review , Tarot , Waite-Smith / 11 June 2017

When you’ve written over a 100 books on spirituality and divination two things can happen: you either have the experience and knowledge to write a kick-ass Tarot beginner’s book that actually holds up in the stack of ever growing beginner’s titles. Or…you write something that is obligatory, boring, a dime a dozen, repetitive or focused on myth, so a newbie better stick with the well-known books.

Companion+ for Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery

Place’s new book is a companion for the Sevenfold, the TdM and Hermeticism I own many of Robert Place’s decks (granted, I love most, but am not equally enthusiastic about all of them). Strangely enough that has not translated itself into even one review, but I am sure I’ll rectify that at one point.
 Besides his decks I’ve come to enjoy many of his writings and books. Combine those two and you have the reason for this little news-item. Because….Finally, it is here! Well, almost then. Place’s newest book is coming soon and it is one many of us Place-deck-collectors have been waiting for. Not only is he an artist with a very recognizable simple but elegant art-style, but he is also an extremely knowledgable art-historian and tarot historian. His book Tarot and History is a classic (on the pile of my standard tarot reference books) and the companion for the Alchemical Tarot (AT), Alchemy and the Tarot, is unequivocally one of the best deck companions ever written. But…if you are very much into his AT (ed4 or not), chances are you have the Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery too. And as gorgeous as it is… most of us have…

After Mandala coloring cards, coloring books for adults and specific mindfulness coloring exercise books it seems the next step is in our own branche: tarot. In the last few months several tarot coloring books hit the market. Tarot by Design by Diana Heyne is one of them and I got to doodle away and tell you all about it (no, not going to
