The Empress Was Framed

Georgianna with Empress card illustrated by Ivan Minsloff

Take a look the beautiful Tarot card I just got framed!

It’s Ivan Minsloff’s original version of the Empress from the deck he and I have been working on.

The style of our deck has changed considerably since she was first drawn, but her spirit is always at its core.

Now she’s gracing my entranceway and welcoming all who come visit.

I don’t know why it took me so long to get her out of her poster roll and out on display, but I’m so glad I did. I just love her!

Another Chariot …

September 16th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

I’m always on the look out for images to complete my Toronto Graffiti Tarot, and sometimes I find more than I need.

For instance, I’ve already got an image to use for the Chariot, but then this one came along. I think it might be my new #7.

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.

3 of Cups from the Smith Waite Tarot

Tonight on Beyond Worlds it’s another Tarot Intensive!!

The cards we’ll be exploring this time are the ‘feminine’ threes, the 3 of Cups and the 3 of Pentacles – emotional abundance and material mastery.

Join myself and the Beyond Worlds panel of Tarot experts to dig down into the story of these two wonderful threes.

There’s a lot more to them then just dancing girls and work.

We’ll all be live in the chat room, and you can call in to listen at (646) 200-0765.

Debut of The World

July 28th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

#21 - The World - Minsloff/Boehnke

As I’ve mentioned many times before, my illustrating friend Ivan Minsloff and I have been working on a Tarot deck.

Just last month we debuted our Hermit card at Art in the Hermetic Tradition at The Hermit’s Lamp.

Today, we’re letting you all have the first glimpse of #21, the World.

I was inspired to reveal it after watching the video below put together by Knate Myers.

It’s a beautiful series of space images from NASA and perfectly expresses why we chose an astronaut as our final card in the Major Arcana.

Seeing our world from space reminds us that everything we know is really part of the grander whole, and whether we like it or not, we’re all in it together.

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 World with Marcus Katz – Tarot Face To Face

June 24th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Tarot Turn (Reversals) Vol 1 by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin

I just posted an interview the other day with Marcus Katz, the co-director of Tarot Professionals.

This afternoon, we have the good fortune of interviewing him ourselves on Beyond Worlds.

He’ll be talking with us about some of the Tarot reading methods found in his new book Tarot Face to Face, including using reversals, reading for cynics, creating oracular sentences, exquisite corpses, the Dwayne’s Boomerang Spread, and the Literal Lenormand Method.

Katz will also tell us about his other new book, Tarot Turn (Reversals) Vol. 1.

Also co-edited with Tali Goodwin, Tarot Turn is part of a three volume collaborative effort of 140 different Tarot readers from around the world.

Each reader was given a single card and was asked to write a description of how that card interacts with each of the other 77 cards in the deck.

As can be imagined, it was an enormous project and has manifested in some pretty gigantic books. This first volume alone is 569 pages. It features 3,388 pairings of the Major Arcana – all 22 cards, upright and reversed.

It also includes disaffirmations for all 78 cards, spreads, reading techniques, as well as some mini-essays about reversals from people like Barbara Moore and Robert M. Place.

Join Donnaleigh de LaRose and myself to hear more about this incredible Tarot reference work and how to read Tarot Face to Face.

We’ll be live in the chat room, or you can call in at (646) 200-0765 to listen.

Beyond Worlds Tarot Intensive #16 – the feminine twos

June 10th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

2 of Cups from the Smith Waite Tarot

Tonight on Beyond Worlds it’s Tarot Intensive #16. We’ll be looking at the 2’s, or at least two of them – the 2 of Pentacles and the 2 of Cups.

2 of Pentacles from the Smith Waite Tarot

Earth and water, stability and fluidity. These cards are about making physical change, and falling in love.

But that’s not all. Among other things, they suggest sharing and working, and making wise choices.

The feminine twos run deep.

Join Donnaleigh de LaRose, Ginny Hunt, Valerie Sylvester, Diane Wilkes, HiC, Dan Pelletier, and me.

We’ll be live in the chat room, or you can call in at (646) 200-0765.

It’s going to be a lively discussion. We’d love you to take part.
