The Tarot of Vampyres
Date: 2010-10-18   By: Ian Daniels
The Vampyre possess a supernatural sensitivity to whispers on the night breeze. This allows them to hear every ripple of sound in the darkness with deadly accuracy—distinguishing its source and quality. Much like the sonic artistry of bats—with which the Vampyre is often associated—this ability allows them to align themselves to the lightest of vibrations. By attuning themselves to such frequencies they can navigate the invisible web of sound around them, guiding them towards their prey, their sanctuary, and their ultimate destiny. How does the Vampyre myth connect with the Tarot? As Ian Daniels, creator of The Tarot of Vampyres, explains, the answer to that question is, simply, quite well.
The High Priestess: Behind the Veil
Date: 2010-09-20   By: Barbara Moore
The High Priestess card is one of the most loved and most mysterious cards in the tarot deck. Its very nature, the way we interpret it, everything about this card suggests the unknowable. And yet we continue to try, as we should, for in the very act of seeking we find something. Perhaps not the answers we hoped for, but something of value. Tarot expert Barbara Moore not only presents some commonly accepted truths about the High Priestess but entertains ideas of her role in the scheme of things.
Play with Your Cards
Date: 2010-06-14   By: Barbara Moore
Tarot decks were originally used to play a trick-taking card came called Tarrochi. While the game is still played, particularly in Europe, tarot cards are more often used for readings, with readers approaching tarot more seriously and understanding the wisdom, advice, and guidance that the cards provide. But that close connection between cards (even tarot cards) and games cannot be overlooked, and can actually be used to liven up your tarot practice. Here, tarot expert Barbara Moore provides some fun ideas to play with your cards—and experience the tarot anew.
The Creation of Shadowscapes Tarot
Date: 2010-05-03   By: Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
How do you create a tarot deck? How do you create something so universal, choosing images to represent the metaphors for each card and suit? Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, artist of Shadowscapes Tarot, explains how the inspiration came to her.
Court Cards, Part IV: The Pages of Tarot
Date: 2010-04-26   By: Barbara Moore
Learning the meanings of tarot cards is generally not that difficult; even small children can learn to associate a meaning with a particular card or describe what is happening (as far as illustrated Minor Arcana are concerned) in an image. That said, the majority of taroists will agree that the trouble lies in the Court Cards. In this fourth installment in a series on the Court Cards, tarot expert Barbara Moore delves into the Pages of the Tarot.
The Hats We Wear in Tarot
Date: 2010-04-12   By: Janina Renée
Looking through a typical Tarot deck, you find that human characters in the cards are distinguished by many different kinds of headwear. Tied in with the symbolic conflation of hat, head, and mind, headgear says something about different states of consciousness. Tarot author Janina Renée explores the many meanings of hats, crowns, and other headwear in the Tarot.
