January 2nd, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Since 2010, The Academy of Cartomancy Arts & Sciences has been handing out Pecto Awards meant ‘to celebrate and acknowledge the best achievement in cartomancy’ for the previous year.

There are twelve categories for cartomancy enthusiasts to vote for including everything from Outstanding Tarot and Oracle Decks, Illustrators and Collaborators to Outstanding Books, Publishers, and Vendors.

One of the categories is Outstanding Cartomancy Website and this year the nominees were Tarotholics via Facebook, The Tarot Guild, Inappropriate Tarot Readings via Facebook, Tarot Passages, and the one closest to my own heart, Beyond Worlds.

And guess what?!! Beyond Worlds and Tarotholics won the honour together!

What a truly happy way to bring in the New Year!

Beyond Worlds with Robert M. Place and Enrique Enriquez

September 9th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Tonight on Beyond Worlds we have a very special treat – two of my favourite Tarot readers, Robert M. Place and Enrique Enriquez are both going to be our guests.

And not only are these Tarot icons going to be on the show, they’re going to be interviewing each other. I can hardly wait to hear what they have to say.

Robert Place of course is the creator of many incredible Tarot decks including the Alchemical Tarot, the Buddha Tarot, the Vampire Tarot, the Tarot of the Saints, and the soon to be released Tarot of the Sevenfold Mysteries.

He’s also the author of multiple books on the histories of Tarot, magic, astrology, and alchemy.

Enrique Enriquez is an inspirational Tarot poet and author of Tarology. He’s also the star of Chris Delio’s most excellent recent Tarot documentary, Tarology: the poetics of tarot.

This is going to be a fun night – I hope you can join us. We’ll be live in the chat room. And if you’d like to call in to listen, the number is (646) 200-0765.

The Lenormand Cards

September 8th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Marie Anne Lenormand

Marie Anne Lenormand was a French fortune-teller born in the late 1700s. Through the Napoleonic era she was heralded as one of the greatest cartomancers of all time.

Mlle. Lenormand was said to have read for the likes of Robespierre, Marat, the Empress Josephine, and Czar Alexander himself.

She made quite a stir during her lifetime, writing books and other texts, causing many a public controversy, and sometimes even ending up in jail.

And though she herself didn’t use the deck her name was later attached to, her cartomantic powers seem to have lived on through it.

The Lenormand deck in its various manifestations has become quite in fashion among the Tarot folk these days. Even I recently caught the bug.

At BATS I attended a seminar on the topic with Mary Greer and within hours I had myself two news decks of 36 cards each.

You read these cards a little differently than Tarot. The meanings of each are much more fixed. They’re more like words in a sentence than symbols in a dream, but I’m starting to catch on.

Beyond Worlds has a Lenormand tutorial series and Donnaleigh herself has been posting how-to videos. I’ve got a lot watching and listening to do.

And though I’m looking forward to having a new divinatory tool to play with, I’m afraid I’ll find all the new Lenormand decks hard to resist.

Take a look at Ciro Marchetti’s soon to be released Gilded Reverie to see what I mean. It’s beautiful.

As if I need another reason to buy cards.

Beyond Worlds with Dan Donche – the Darkana Tarot

July 8th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

I promised it last month, but it’s really going to happen tonight – Dan Donche, the Inappropriate Tarot Reader will be joining us live on Beyond Worlds.

Not only is Donche hilarious, he’s a creative genius as well, as can be seen by his about-to-be-published Darkana Tarot Deck.

I’ve had mine on order since February and can hardly wait to see it for real. And I’m really looking forward to hearing what Donche has to say about it tonight.

Join me and Donnaleigh de LaRose and everyone else live in the chat room, or call in at (646) 200-0765.

It’s going to be fun, and probably inappropriate as well.

Beyond Worlds with Robert M. Place – Divining Methods

July 1st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Tonight on Beyond Worlds we welcome back the brilliant and always illuminating Robert M. Place.

He’ll be joining Donnaleigh de LaRose and myself to talk about methods of divination.

Using everything from entrails, bones, and shells, to stars, palms, and Tarot cards, humans have been busy divining for a long time now.

What does it mean to ‘divine’ and how have we been doing it? Not to mention, why?

Is divination the same thing as predicting? Or is it something more?

These are some of the questions we’ll be exploring with Robert, and it’s sure to be fascinating.

Join us live in the chat room, or you can call in to listen at (646) 200-0765.

Beyond Worlds – Boundaries for Tarot Readers (part 2)

April 1st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

We had so much to talk about last time that we’re doing another show …. tonight on Beyond Worlds it’s part two of our discussion on Boundaries for Tarot readers.

The expert panel is back to talk about how to establish, modify, and/or maintain personal and professional boundaries as a reader. And it’s not always easy.

Each reader has a different experience and a different perspective on how to work with clients or other readers. And each will have to determine for themselves where they’ll draw their personal and professional lines.

Join Donnaleigh de LaRose, Diane Wilkes, Theresa Reed, James Wells, Sharon Brown, Marcy Currier, and me live in the chat room, or call in at (646) 200-0765.

We’ve got lots to share.
