A Little Self-Care

June 27th, 2017 § Comments Off on A Little Self-Care § permalink

Here’s a sweet new deck by Anastasia ‘Deja’ Osbourne – My Quality Time Self-Care Deck. It’s not so much a Tarot deck as it is a collection of ways to take care of yourself … especially if you’re a lady, but men can use it too!

Take a look at the video below, and/or visit My Quality Time Self-Care Deck project page or Deja’s website to learn more …

Symbology: an A to Z of Archetypes and Epiphanies

March 27th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

I know I just posted a Kickstarter project the other day, but here’s another one, this time by Annie Davies, curator of The Collective Tarot.

Though it’s not another Tarot project, it is occult oriented and involves pictures. It’s Symbology: an A to Z of Archetypes and Epiphanies.

Symbology is what Davies describes as a ‘largeish minicomic’, a 32 page black and white book gathering together esoteric symbols based on each letter of the alphabet.

I love the idea, and the artwork. And the video below where Davies displays the various rewards you can get for donating is fabulous. Take a look!

Caravan of See'ers …

August 29th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

All playing cards can be used for divining, but Jennifer Kast has gone ahead and designed a playing card deck meant especially for just that.

She’s created the Caravan of See’ers Fortune Telling Playing Cards, two different decks, a Blue one and a Red one.

On the Novice-Blue Deck, she’s written the oracular meanings right on the cards, while just the key word meanings have been inscribed on her Intuitive-Red Deck.

Shadow-like images on the cards also tell a story, one that’s upright, and one that’s reversed.

Both decks, of course, can be used for all of your regular card gaming needs. The only difference is that these cards are a little more overtly oracular than most.

Take a look at the video below to see images of the Red Deck. And visit her Kickstarter project page to learn more about both.

The Soul of Science

October 29th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

In the fall of last year, artist Daniel Martin Diaz became obsessed with scientific diagrams. Though he knew they weren’t intended for their aesthetic value, he thought they were beautiful and was inspired to create his own.

In his forthcoming book, Soul of Science, Diaz shows us some of what he’s come up with. Using ink and graphite, he interprets big concepts like consciousness from a scientific, philosophical, and spiritual perspective.

The book will include 40 drawings by Diaz, as well essays by esteemed scientists and experts in various fields of study – mathematics, biomedicine, philosophy, plasma physics, etc.

Diaz’s work is gorgeous. And bringing together science, art, and the spirit like this is exciting.

Take a look at the video below to learn more about the project.

And if you feel like helping to make it happen and getting a copy of the book for yourself, stop by the Soul of Science Kickstarter Project page to donate.

Here’s another Lenormand deck Kickstarter project card readers might like – the Stick Peeps Lenormand by Gidget London.

All I have to say is that it’s absolutely adorable.

Under the Roses Lenormand

September 11th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Wasn’t I just talking about Lenormand decks the other day

Here’s another Kickstarter project, but this time it’s for a Lenormand rather than for Tarot.

The Under The Roses Lenormand was co-created by Kendra Hurteau and Katrina Hill.

Based on the Petit Lenormand, this very pretty 36-card deck includes an alternate Lady and Gentleman card and 4 informational cards.

On the face of each, there’s not only a picture, but also a list of key words, making it a great deck for beginners and experts alike.

Take a look at images of all the cards in the slideshow below, and visit the Under The Roses project page if you’d like to learn more.

The Hero Project

August 8th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

This Kickstarter project ends today, and unfortunately, I don’t think they’re going to be able to raise the funds they were hoping for this time round.

Still, I wanted to post The Hero Project video anyway because I just love what they’re trying to do and am hoping that toy designers Tucker Johnson and Wayne Losey don’t give up.

Action figures aren’t usually my thing, but I really like the idea of these ones. They’re mythological heroes (and sheroes) from around the world.

Starting with the Indian god Rama, they hope to move on to others like the Celtic hero Cuchulainn, Horus, the Sky god of ancient Egypt, and the Aztec air god Quetzalcoatl.

Female characters they’re considering include the Greek goddess Athena, Hawaii’s Pele, and Sita, a Hindu incarnation of the fertility goddess Lakshmi.

The Rama figure they’ve created looks fabulous, as do the sketches for all the rest.

I hope this project manages to come to fruition. I’d be thrilled to have my very own Bastet action doll.

To keep up with The Hero Project, follow them on Facebook. And watch the video below to learn more.

A Photographer's Oracle

May 19th, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

I know I just posted about a Tarot Kickstarter project yesterday, but I’m going to do it again today.

Well, what I’m talking about today isn’t exactly Tarot, but it is a deck of cards meant to inspire and direct the inner vision.

The Vision Quest Photo Assignment Cards are a set of 36 cards with, as might be expected, a photo assignment on each.

The assignments include things like ‘Photograph Red’, and ‘Interpret the subject Love. No kids, pets, parents or partners. Go deeper …’

By using the oracular method to choose assignments, photographer and card creator, Douglas Beasley hopes to get creativity flowing and allow synchronicity to direct artists to their perfect task.

I love the idea! And combining two of my favourite things, picture taking and divination, in one stylish package certainly gets me interested.

And apparently, I’m not the only one. Beasley has already raised the money he was looking for to print his deck, so it’s definitely a go.

But you may want to support the project anyway, just to get your own copy.

Cartes Infernals

April 27th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

If you’re someone who enjoys devilish art, especially in the form of pack of oversized cards, this Kickstarter project by Ariana Osborne might be just the thing for you.

Osborne is illustrating the 69 demons from the Dictionnaire Infernal, a 19th Century compendium of demons by Jacque Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy.

Demons like Abraxas and Cerberus, Bael and Alastor. Very magical, and despite their grusomeness, quite beautiful.

Not only is she making an absolutely gorgeous deck, Osborne’s also put together a PDF featuring all the cards and a more detailed description of each demon.

Take a look at the video below to hear what the artist herself has to say about her project, and visit her Kickstarter page to see the gifts she’s offering to those who donate.

She’s already raised at least five times what she was looking for, so the Cartes Infernals is definitely going forward. It’s not too late though, to get in on the action yourself.

Rock And Roll Oracle Deck – classic rock edition

September 21st, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Rock and Roll is the inspiration behind David Rosenhaus’ new deck – The Rock and Roll Oracle Card Deck.

He sees music as intimately connected to the spirit and wanted to use songs we already know and love to deliver messages from the divine.

It’s meant to be the first in a series of Rock and Roll Oracles, covering the years, genres and styles of popular music through the last half century.

This first one is the Classic Rock Edition and focuses on music through 1973.

It includes classics like Zepplin’s Stairway To Heaven as the Choices card, and the Stone’s Sympathy for the Devil as the Shadow Side.

Appropriately, Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze represents Confusion.

The 44 Card deck and its accompanying guide book are already at the printers, and the deck should be ready mid-December.

If you’re interested in supporting the project, Rosenhaus has a Kickstarter page where donations turn into Rock n’ Roll rewards.

Check it out.
