Color

One of the reasons so many of us love tarot is the cards…we like to collect decks because we love the art. We love reading visual images (rather than words). In addition to the symbols, composition, and style in each of these tiny pieces of art, color plays an important role in how we respond […]

The Future of Tarot

Today’s post is more of a long, rambling kind of question rather than tips or ideas.  It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. As an acquiring editor, it is part of my job to think of these things. Also, sometimes when I’m at conferences or on panels, I get asked about this. […]

Illuminati 9 of Swords

Each week this month, we are taking a look at the Tarot Illuminati by Eric Dunne and Kim Huggens. The 9 of Swords is not really my favorite to get in a reading, but in so many decks, I find the card to striking and powerful. Such is the case here:

7 Tips for Interpretation

On of the things I like about The Ultimate Guide to the Rider Waite Tarot by Joannes Fiebig and Evelin Burger is their lists of “10′s.” There list of The 10 Most Important Rules for Interpretation inspired me to write my own list: 7 Tips for Interpretation Because any one tarot card has such a […]

Illuminati 3 of Cups

Each week this month, we’ll take a look at a card from the Tarot Illuminati by Eric Dunne, book by Kim Huggens.   The 3 of Cups is one of my favorites, and this is no exception:

Developing Your Skills

Learning to read tarot includes study, such as understanding the system behind your deck of choice, exploring card meanings, working with correspondences, and reviewing reading techniques and spreads. No matter how much one studies, it is (I think) impossible to become a skilled tarot reader without a lot of practice. People often ask me how […]

Black Cats Tarot

Right. I like  RWS-style deck as well as the next person. I like cat decks pretty well (which is good, considering I designed the Pagan Cats Tarot) even though I am more of a dog person. I certainly did not expect to fall in love with the fabulous felines of the Black Cats Tarot. Seriously. […]

So Right It’s Wrong

Recently, James Ricklef asked several regular users of Tarot how they think giving readings with the cards actually works. He published the answers on his blog in two posts located HERE and HERE. In his posts he begins by sharing his own theory and that of Robin Wood. He also shares the beliefs of Rachel […]

The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

In a recent post, Psyche gives some excellent information on how to give a Tarot reading. Specifically, she advises that the information the reader gives should be presented in a manner that is useful to the person receiving the reading. This sounds like it should be elementary information—if the information presented in a reading isn’t useful, it’s […]

Lenormand and Tarot

This past weekend at the Readers Studio, I noticed that some of my fellow attendees are becoming very interested in Lenormand decks. They like that Lenormand gives very specific, very clear readings. Once familiar with the cards, which have specific meanings rather than a range of meanings like tarot, and the reading method, usually but […]
