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.

The Burning Serpent Oracle

Take a look at this fantastic IndieGoGo project! Robert M. Place and Rachel Pollack’s brand new Burning Serpent Oracle!

Two of my favourite Tarot teachers and deck designers have come together to create, not a Tarot deck, but a new set of Lenormand cards.

Place is responsible for the artwork on all forty of these beautiful cards, while Pollack has written the 260 page book that accompanies the deck.

I can hardly wait to get my copy! Go to the Burning Serpent Oracle project page to learn more, and maybe to order a copy for yourself.

Tarot Month in Portugal

March 21st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Watch the video below to see João Caldeira interview Rachel Pollack about Tarot, art, the spirit, and the House of Tarot’s upcoming month long Tarot festivities.

May is the House of Tarot Lisbon’s Tarot International Month and they’ll be celebrating across Portugal with Tarot art shows, lectures, and a conference in Lisbon from May 17th through the 20th.

But if you aren’t able to make it to Portugal, there’s still a chance to participate through on-line video feeds and skype workshops.

It’s sounds pretty amazing. Tarot has really stepped up to the technological frontier.

But as great as it will be to take part from my living room, I still wish I could be there in person.

Three Perspectives on Tarot

December 6th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

There are a lot of different perspectives on the Tarot, probably as many as there are people when you start getting specific.

Three of them are represented in the video below. It’s called Tarot: The Everlasting Debate, and was put together by Lisa Montanaro and Joe Martindale.

The clip features three different people all talking about Tarot. There’s Father LaMorte, a Catholic priest who comes to the topic from a religious viewpoint.

There’s Bernadette Ramirez, a psychic reader who owns a magic shop. She sees the cards as an intuitive tool, good for opening psychic communication.

And then there’s Tarot scholar, designer, and author Rachel Pollack, who approaches the cards as something to be studied in their own right.

They all have interesting things to say, I wish the interviews were longer.

Omega Tarot Conference July 29-31, 2011

Here’s another Tarot event that’s coming up fast …

The Omega Tarot Conference will be held from July 29-31 in gorgeous Rhinebeck, New York. This year’s topic is Tarot: Fate & Free Will.

Rachel Pollack and Mary K. Greer host the event, and this year they’ve invited three especially talented Tarot teachers to join them.

Toronto’s own, James Wells, author of Tarot for Manifestation, will be there. As will the founder of Tarot Professionals, Marcus Katz.

To fill out the roster will be Ellen Lorenzi-Prince, creator of Tarot of the Crone and Tarot Paper Dolls.

From the beauty of the Hudson Valley, to the brilliance of the company and the magic of the cards, this is going to be an amazing retreat. Get there if you can.

Tonight on Beyond Worlds we’ll be talking with Katrina Wynn, MA. Known for her unique Tarot counseling style, Katrina brings 36 years of Tarot experience and 22 years of teaching and professional counseling to her work.

She’ll be talking tonight about counseling skills and the value of supporting awareness and change for your Tarot clients. Join us online and/or call in – (646) 200-0765

And don’t miss tomorrow’s show with Rachel Pollack! She’ll be talking with Storm and Donnaleigh about unusual tarot interpretations and Tarot stories, or midrash.

Rachel Pollack

What is Midrash? It’s the stories in and around the cards. As Rachel herself explains, “In some ways, the idea of odd interpretations is a midrash idea, that is, meanings that are not part of the original design or concepts, but are a meaningful and valuable extension.”

It’s going to be brilliant. Don’t miss it!
