The Moon Oracle (2018) | Review
Astrology , Decks , Oracle , Review / 8 April 2018

Oracles lack a systematic approach or have too little possibilities as a divination tool. Were you nodding fervently? Then you need to keep reading, because this review could forever change your mind. I’ve had the pleasure to already review a few oracle titles that go beyond the ‘limitations’ many cartomancers think are part of this deck type, but with the updated The Moon Oracle just released by Eddison Books I’ve definitely found an oracle that’s as systematic as a

Fortune Teller’s Handbook | Review
Books , Psychic development , Review , Tarot / 2 December 2017

Google Sasha Fenton and you will get enough book results to make you as happy as Charlie in the Chocolate Factory. Red Wheel/Weiser already republished one of her successful titles on Fortunetelling by Tarot Cards and depending on your location December or January 2018 another one will be available for the masses again. If you are all about foreseeing the future Sasha Fenton’s latest reprint, Fortune Teller’s Handbook | 20 Fun and Easy Techniques for Predicting the Future, might be right up your alley. Based on just reading the blurb my prediction is: fun reading for the beginning diviner and a way to decide which rabbit hole you want to fall down in. Fenton’s Fortune Teller’s Handbook is a 186 pages counting paperback. Orange tinted back and cover with a classic Zohar gazing into a crystal ball. The subtitle basically gives away the angle of the book and the fact it won’t be an independant study of a particular way of divining. The Handbook shows “20 fun and easy techniques” and the intro adds these twenty chapters are “merely the tip of the iceberg. In all cases there are excellent in-depth books available on divination method in question (..)”. So, you…

Sola Busca Ferrara XV (LS) | Review

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. Sola-Busca Ferrara by Lo Scarabeo | Anima Antiqua Series 2017 2. Eros: The Garden of Love Tarot: burlesque TdM by Uusi Studios 2017 3. Minchiate Florentine Etruria 1795 by Il Meneghello 1994 (+ Minchiate El Leone) 4. Le Tarot Noir: a medieval inspired TdM by Matthew Hackiere/Editions Vega 2013 *** [Editor’s note: Even though there is already a Sola Busca review- on the Mayer 1998 – on the site, this one also includes its historical significance and all the differences with other older and new tarot decks] The Sola-Busca is ‘hot’ at the moment. For whatever reason this very special 15th century deck is gaining repro-brothers*. This review is about the most recent addition to the Sola Busca stacks: Lo Scarabeo’s latest reproduction of the deck*. Enter Sola Busca Ferrara XV from their Anima Antiqua line. Look & Feel The Unboxing of Lo Scarabeo’s…
