A new spin on the traditional tarot, this 78 card deck is printed on plastic (not sure it is very good for the environment) and is designed to be used in layers, to see how a situation is unfolding or how the Querants journey is unfolding. I know that Emily created this deck to be used with multiple cards, that is the whole point so working with the deck in this way is can be very meaningful to see what combinations of the cards are going to look like and in what order they fall. Keeping track of the order...

There is a superstition that has been in the tarot community for as long as I know and everyone has heard it or read it in a book, it is that you are not supposed to buy your own deck as it will not provide you with clear readings and it is bad luck, you are supposed to have someone buy it for you or receive it as a gift. The gift one is supposed to be the best luck. Tarot/New Age/Pagan people (not all together most of the time) tend to be suspicious people and this worries new comers. I...

"The only way is up" - Yazz. For some reason every time I see the card the Nine of Wands this is what I get in my head. It is a completely reasonable reaction as the cards energy is all about overcoming obstacles, being steadfast and having determination.The person is battle weary but the end of the struggle is nearly here. The figure in the RWS (Rider Waite Smith) card has a bandage around his head and looks very tired. He is probably going to have scars from what he has gone through but along with that comes experience,...

I have been very uninspired this week due to a lot happening so I am going to sum up a couple of things in this post. Book ReviewThe Tarot Reader's Daughter - By Helen DunwoodieRosa has moved with her family, begrudgingly from the city to the country and whilst helping her mum unpack stumbles across a pack of well-worn Tarot cards inside a pouch with her mothers name embroidered on it. Her mother freaks out when she sees Rosa with them which sparks Rosa to dig into her mothers past...

It was in my handbag and it was a gift for someone. She was light blue with purple mane and tail. I seriously doubt any dream interpretation books have My little Ponies as a entry, unless of course it was written by Doreen Virtue PHD. My favourite blonde haired, money hungry, vomit inducing New Ager.So with that introduction here are some random ponderings of the day:Pop Culture - Michael Jackson has so much crap, no wonder he is hard up for cash. I am not a huge Michael Jackson fan, I think his music is amazing and do have a...

I wonder how many people are going to get that reference.Card of the Day - Strength - 3rd April 2009I am currently pondering what kind of strength that I am being asked to have today? Is it the strength not to obliterate 20 Easter eggs? Is the strength not to go down that dark thorned path? Is it the strength to just dig in and get it done? Or is it the strength to see the good in every situation and remain positive? It is probably all of these things.This is a card I get often but one that I...

I am backtracking with the last two days, as I have been busy working with the President and CEO of my company so here are the cards of the day for the last two days in March. I am going to work with a different deck of cards each month however am going to give the Whispering Tarot all of April, two days just doesn't seem fair.I asked the cards when shuffling: What I am to pay attention to today or what is the energy of the day going to be?30th March 2009 - 10 of Wands - Whispering TarotThe...

I am a happy little bunny today because my scanner is finally working. My very naughty beagle ate my power cord and I was lucky enough to find a replacement one floating around my office. So I have finally started to scan my tarot cards in order to start posting card of the days and comparative tarot posts!It also means I can scan artwork again. I was at home last night, taking advantage of an empty house and worked on my jewellery and drawing. I created the mandala below based on the suit of swords.The suit of swords rules over...

http://kozmic-kitchen.com/home.htmlThe Whispering Tarot by Elizabeth Hazel is such an imaginative deck with beautiful detailed pictures. Finishing this deck took Elizabeth three years and then a further 9 years to get it published, which she did independently in 2008. I purchased my set direct from her site and it had no problems getting safely to Oz. I purchased both the CD (Handbook) and the Deck of cards.The Deck: Comes presented in a nice hard cardboard box that is better than the normal boxes that are offered in. Each deck is numbered and signed by Elizabeth. The cards are coloured on both...

This has got to be the coolest cake I have ever seen. It was custom created for a party by the Yummy Cake Company in the UK - http://www.yummycakecompany.co.uk/ I stumbled across it while surfing the web and had to share. Too good to eat, although if it was a chocolate cake it would have no chance with me, I would take a photo of the thing and then eat it. Yep I am a chocoholic and proud of it! ...
