Once upon a time, a girl walked into a tarot deck and found exactly what she'd been searching for… The Dark Wood Tarot is a sensual and immersive tarot experience. It brings you deep into the shadowy heart of an enchanted forest. The Shadow Witch reflects you, the reader. Each archetype offers a discovery, a lesson, and a reflection of your deepest self. The Dark Wood is a shadow deck meant to push you out of your comfort zone in the best way possible. I've always harbored an intense fascination with haunted, occult things. Power, mystery, and darkness are tantalizing and powerful. The supernatural reminds you of how very much alive you are. Gooseflesh erupts across your skin, ...

Playing cards have been with us for centuries, but they're less popular in divination today than more famous systems such as the tarot. This is partly because the few definitions we have for reading poker-style decks are very old-fashioned: nearly all of them focus only on work, illness, and marriage (the most important topics at the time!) and their attitudes to women are...well, two or three hundred years out of date.

I was free to take the concept in any direction I wanted. My first instinct was the four-house school approach because I love it, and also four suits, four houses; it is a natural blending. But it has been done and done very well. I believe ideas can be explored ...

If you have ever done a tarot reading with the Celtic Cross spread, you are probably familiar with that "moment of truth" feeling as the final Most Likely Outcome card is revealed. It's like playing the old Mystery Date game: when you open the door will your mystery date be a dream or a dud? Excellent advice is available for how to deal with seemingly negative cards. They are not to be feared and can offer powerful nuanced insights into our issues. Let's continue with the Mystery Date analogy: what if you got the guy dressed for the beach but you really wanted to end up with the guy going skiing? Both results are fine, but your preferred result didn't show up at the door. Are we allowed ...
