The Ghetto Tarot

April 24th, 2015 § 2 comments § permalink

Here’s an interesting Indiegogo Tarot project – The Ghetto Tarot by photographer Alice Smeets.

Smeets and a group of Haitian artists called Atis Rezistans (Resistant Artists) have reinterpreted the traditional Rider Waite Smith deck using Port-au-Prince as their backdrop and source of inspiration. I think it looks fantastic!!

Take a look at the video below to see for yourself, and visit The Ghetto Tarot project page to learn more.

The Linestrider Tarot

February 24th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s another sweet Tarot Indiegogo Campaign to look at … The Linestrider Tarot by Siolo Thompson.

Her graphite/ink/water colour images are just beautiful, soft, elegant and really powerful. I like all the cards I’ve seen, but am especially fond of the Queen of Wands (I think it’s the black kitty on the Queen’s shoulder that sold me.)

To see the cards for yourself, and to learn more about the deck, visit the Linestrider Tarot project page at Indiegogo and/or Thompson’s website, The Linestrider Codex.

The Alchemical Tarot: Renewed Four

January 21st, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Last week I posted about Robert Place’s new New York Lenormand Oracle Cards. In the post, I mentioned that Place is the creator of The Alchemical Tarot, one of my all time favourite decks.

As it turns out, while working on his new Lenormand cards, Place has also been re-working his Alchemical Tarot and is now ready to print a 4th edition of these fabulous cards.

To see the new deck (each of the cards has been reworked and renewed), visit The Alchemical Tarot: Renewed Four project page. There you’ll find images of all the cards, and a description of what’s changed since the last printing.

Wizard's Pets Tarot

May 20th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

Pamela Steele, creator of the Steele Wizard Tarot, has done it again, this time with a slightly more whimsical take on the traditional RWS imagery.

Her new deck, the Wizard’s Pets Tarot is adorable. Though the characters in the Minor Arcana might be familiar, the Court Cards and Major Arcana are populated by magical (and very cute) dragons.

You can see the cards in the video below, and/or at the Wizard’s Pets website. And to learn more about Steele’s IndieGoGo campaign, visit her Wizard’s Pets Tarot Project Page.

The Burning Serpent Oracle – Rachel Pollack Demonstrates

April 21st, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

I posted about Robert Place and Rachel Pollack’s Burning Serpent Oracle before, but now there’s a video so I can’t help but post again.

The Burning Serpent Oracle is Place and Pollack’s take on the classic Lenormand deck, a deck not unlike Tarot, but with only 38 cards, and a very standardized (though still quite magical) method of reading.

In the video below, Rachel Pollack talks about the Lenormand deck and its history, as well as how to actually read with it, using The Burning Serpent Oracle to demonstrate.

If you’re interested in ordering a deck of your own, the Burning Serpent Indiegogo campaign is still on until Thursday. Visit the project page to learn more.

If you’re a Tarot aficionado who enjoys a good short story, you might want to check out Annetta Ribken’s IndieGoGo project, Allegories of the Tarot.

Ribken is editing a book of twenty-two short works of fiction by twenty-two different authors, each inspired by one of Tarot’s Major Arcana cards.

Several writing genres will be represented – fantasy, paranormal, horror, bizzaro, dystopia, romance. Sounds fun!!
