Robin Wood Tarot and Tarot of the Old Path Side by Side Comparison
Tarot of the Old Path was my first tarot deck in 1999 and I really love the major arcana. I struggled with the minor arcana until I got the Robin Wood Tarot, which had minors which were much easier for me to understand. This is a side-by-side flip through of both decks.
Soul Cats Tarot (Deck Review)
I am absolutely in love with this deck. I don’t even have a cat. My mom has always had cats and still does but I’ve lived with only a dog for more than a decade. What I’m saying is that you may find this deck stunning even if you’re not a “cat person.” Soul Cats…
Kawaii Tarot (Deck Review)
Kawaii Tarot is, no surprise, absolutely adorable. I remember when I was first learning tarot, there was pressure on a forum I frequented to eschew the cute and go for the dark, serious, masculine. I ended up buying a lot of decks I never liked and no longer own. Nowadays I buy what I like…

Tarot Original 1909 Circular Edition (Deck Review)

In this deck, the Nordic imagery is complemented by symbolic animals, from wolves (for protection) to owls (for wisdom), which provide a deeper insight into the cards’ meanings.

Things to do when you get a new tarot deck
Whether it’s your first or your fiftieth, a new deck is exciting. You want to learn this deck and you want to learn it now. Slow down. Seriously. I used to get a new notebook and label a page for each card before I’d even looked at them. That’s because I thought it was the…
Exploring Tarot Apps
Part of the allure of Tarot is the mystery. You envision a candlelit read and a table spread with your grandmother’s tablecloth. There is soft music playing as you shuffle a well-worn deck that glides like butter in your hands. You lay out the cards next to your crystals and ponder their meanings. Unfortunately that’s…
