Melissa Lenormand

here is something interesting :

“Melissa’s Lenormand is a thirty-six card oracle deck inspired by French style Lenormand cartomancy and beautiful vintage ephemera.

The images are predominately public domain vintage postcards and elements from vintage advertising.”

I just love the vintage look ! you have the possibility to order the deck online … enjoy !

Merry Christmas !

xmas-on-blog

Hi there,

I have been busy these last few days … Writing my book and also taking some clutter away from my office ! I miss posting so I will be back soon 😀  I made this little card for you to wish you of course a very Merry Christmas ! Personally, it is really not my favorite time of the year honestly but I will do my best to make the most of it. I also think of making a “Grand Tableau” for myself to see what the year 2009 will bring. Hugs to you all !

Cheers
Jayce

The druidcraft tarot deck

druidcraft tarot princess of swords

I just bought myself a brand new deck : the Druidcraft Tarot deck ! I just couldn’t leave the shop without it. The visuals are just beautiful : you don’t get the feeling the artist focused on the Major Arcana and overlooked the Minor Arcana as it is sometimes the case. What I also love is that the meaning of each card is strongly related and inspired by the classic RWS. So if you have experience with a classic deck, the transition isn’t hard to go through. Yet it offers a lot of details when it comes to symbolism. What I like most : the design of each card, you feel like entering the card and exploring its world, like it is a movie you want to watch over and over again. It is very inviting, the colors are rich, details are well designed, the characters have personality and seem very human. The trees and forest are just beautifully rendered in luscious colors. I tend to dislike the Emperor (Major Arcana 4) in the classic tarot deck, and I love the one in this deck. One difference is that the Page are called Princess in this deck.

What is really nice is that having a brand new deck you tend to discover each card all over again. You notice details you might have overlooked previously. And along with the deck, there was a well written book (in sepia tone ) with explanation about each card and also some suggestions for layouts. The book is offering insight on every card with keywords to relate easily and very thorough. I spent several evenings looking at the cards with a notebook on the side, jotting down ideas and feelings, making combinations and such.

The cards are bigger than the deck I usually use so this takes some time to get used to. But the design of each card is so compelling, It’d be a shame to be printed on smaller cards. I think that in the next few weeks, I’ll use this deck quite often as it is giving me inspiration and new insights. It is a very fresh alternative from the RWS I used to work with.

Cheers,
Jayce

The vision of a Tarot/Oracle Reader

Before posting an article on what Tarot can do for you, I wish to share this picture with you.
I believe it represents what a reader is to me, someone who can translate images into a specific vision.
The numbers on the wall are like the numbers on the card and the cards themselves, under a special light direction they reveal a vision of its own. The position of the numbers on the wall are like the position of the cards within a spread, they have their importance, placed differently the final image to be seen would be else ! The light is your intuition, your wisdom and experience ….
I just love this peice of art !
The name of the artist is Kumi Yamashita
Some pictures can also be seen on Fubiz and on E-Sushi as well. Hope you enjoy !

Setting things up !

Ace of Wands (Crone deck)
Just trying to figure out the details in order to post messages on this blog.
So I guess the Ace of wands form the beautiful Crone deck is indeed appropriate to illustrate this point.
You may view this entire deck at Taroteca
This deck ranks high on my wish list !
