Tarot In Review: An Unfolding Journey

There is no such thing as just a deck of cards. Each deck has a special energy or story to tell. They have a very distinct purpose and tend to be heavily imprinted with the essence of their creators. This blog will explore both tarot and oracle decks and delve into their story, their purpose and how best you as a reader can utilize the gifts and abilities each deck has to offer.

Leeza Robertson

Leeza Robertson

Leeza Robertson is the most nonspiritual spiritual person you will ever meet. Her resistance to the New Age way of life set her on spiritual quest like no other. This began in 2006 when Leeza was first introduced to the concept of power animals. Then in 2008 she had her very first encounter with the fae world, which lead to her numerous radio interviews on shows like the very popular Tarot Talk. In 2009 Leeza lost her site due to a sinus infection. In this 3mth blindness she started seeing tarot spreads and cards along with images of the people the readings where for.
In 2011 Leeza made a conscious choice to take her relationship with tarot to a much deeper level and that is when she began writing about tarot, the cards and teaching others the many mysteries of the ever unfolding path that is tarot. Today she is a member of the American Tarot Association and runs a monthly study group called Tarot and Tea.
In 2013 Leeza was approached by Llewellyn World Wide to produce her very first Tarot deck, The Awakened Animal Tarot. Through the creation of this deck Leeza has forged an even stronger bond with the cards, their energy and the deeper aspects of their archetypal teachings.
The Unfolding of the Chrysalis Tarot

Earlier this year the Chrysalis Tarot by Toney Brooks and Holly Sierra made its way to #1 on my must have list. I had been following the creation of this deck on facebook and checking in regularly with Toney's blog. Not long after I wrote my must have post I finally got a copy of this gorgeous deck in my hands.

Holly Serria the artist for this deck went above and beyond with the packaging. Everything about the packaging was done with the consumer in mind. The littlest details made a huge impact as I unwrapped each layer. It did not surprise me at all to find out how quickly the first release of this deck through U.S Games sold out.

Magic and Spells with the Witches Tarot

Ellen Dugan's Witches Tarot has become my go to deck and that is a special privilege in my deck collection. I wasn't sure anything could top the connection I made with my Steampunk deck but then the Witches Tarot called to me in a dream (I kid you not) and now it is the deck at the top of my pile. This is a deck I flirted with for awhile before it showed up in my dream. I made googly eyes at it on Amazon and even drooled over the images on facebook but I had not committed to buying it.

Then it happened, it came to me in my dream time. Yes this deck is that powerful, it will communicate to you while you sleep. I dreamed of the cards and each one spoke to me, literally, it was a dream what can I say! The images imprinted themselves on my mind so when I work up I had no choice but to ring my local Pagan Store, Well of the Moon and ask them if they had the Witches Tarot in stock. Of course they did, right!

There are some new and noteworthy decks on my wish list so i thought I would share the love and let you see what is next on my new, noteworthy and must have list for the remainder of the summer. 

Kicking things off at #1 is the Isidore Tarot - Bethalynne Bajema

The Other Half - Fairy Lights Tarot

It is said that each of us have someone in the world that is just for us, even if we don't want them. Some call them soul mates, some call them twin flames others call them a pain in the ass. Like it or not there is an energy out there that is your matching pair. Lucia Mattioli takes this idea to a whole new level with her deck Fairy Lights Tarot. In this deck each of the cards have a matching pair or another half floating around somewhere in the vortex of the deck. Not only does this fascinate me from a deck creator stand point, but it also totally switches things up from a reading stand point.

Before I bought this deck I knew about this fascinating plot twist within the story of the Fairy Lights Tarot. In essence it was the reason I bought the deck. I had to see it for myself. I wanted to put the pieces together and put them together I did. Although this was harder then I thought it would be, finding all the pairs didn't take me as long as I thought it would. And you can bet your bottom dollar once I did reunite the couples in the deck I took a photo of them. I did this for one reason and one reason only, I wanted a quick reference guide to the matching energy for reading purposes.

The Burning Serpent Oracle - An Interview With Rachel Pollack

This week I got to do something that I never in a million years thought I would ever get to do. I sat down and interviewed the Author who wrote the book that literally changed the course of my life. She is the reason I am here on this blog, I am talking about the great Rachel Pollack. 

Rachel Pollack is the author of 36 books of fiction and non-fiction, including two a1sx2_Thumbnail1_Rachel-from-Rubi-Rose-1.jpgaward-winning novels, and over fifteen books on Tarot.  Her 78 Degrees of Wisdom: A
Book of Tarot
 was published in 1980 and has been in print ever since, described around the world as "the Bible of Tarot readers."  A visual artist, she created The Shining Tribe Tarot.  Rachel's work has been translated into 14 languages.

Exploring The Sacred Masculine Through The Golden Dawn Temple Tarot

I am going to start this review with a little blunt honesty. I am not a big fan of Golden Dawn derived decks. In fact I own only 3 of them and only bought one of them. Two where gifts including the deck I am reviewing today. Now i am not saying there is anything wrong with this school of tarot, it is just that they all seem to have a very strong, hard masculine energy to them. This is a turn off for me personally as a reader, which is why my collection is very much Rider-Waite.

So I expected to have the same relationship with the Golden Dawn Temple deck as I had with the many others like it that have crossed my path in the past.

A Journey of Rebirth With the Tarot de St. Croix

My review today is not the one I had planned. In fact I have a hard drive filled with other reviews that really should be posted before this one. However this deck is speaking the loudest, is pulling me more to it and has just captured my heart. I am speaking of course of Lisa de St. Croix's stunning deck Tarot de St. Croix.

This deck arrived in my mailbox Easter weekend and has not left my hands since. It has mesmerized me, entrapped me and left me longing to experience more. Yes I am still talking about a deck of cards. I could feel the energy of this deck before I even opened the bubble wrap postal envelop. This energy only intensifies the moment you get it into your hands.
