With Halloween and Bonfire Night just around the corner, it seems only right to feature and to review an awesome, autumnal tarot deck such as The Bonefire Tarot – a vivid, hand-painted Rider-Waite based tarot deck inspired by the vintage, old-school tattoo flash of Sailor Jerry Collins.
The Bonefire Tarot is the ideal tarot deck for the explorative reader as it features visual keys and symbols to enhance and encourage intuitive reading.
Designed and created by Gabi Angus-West, The Bonefire Tarot began as a painting based upon ‘The Lovers’ which was created in honour of an engaged couple, who sadly never got to ‘tie the knot’.…
Since relighting my love for reading the tarot back in the springtime, I’ve collected countless decks, a few of which I’ve made storage bags and pouches for. Here are a few of the bags which I’ve thrown together over the past six months or so…
Handmade At Home
Though I’m not too bad on a sewing machine, my work is far from perfect, thus it’s rather nice to have a couple of professionally made bags to add to my ever-growing collection.
I was very kindly sent two professionally made tarot bags by a good friend (from OrsettiCraft tarot pouches) during a rather dark time – I must say her work rather put my own to shame and despite turning the bags inside out and inspecting them thoroughly, I’m yet to figure out how she made such seamless bags (they are quite literally seamless!).…
First published in 2019 by Liminal 11, The Modern Witch Tarot is a diverse, contemporary take upon the traditional tarot inspired by fashion and modern witches from the everyday walk of life.
Having seen quite a few walkthrough videos of The Modern Witch Tarot, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this deck for quite some time and so as you can imagine, I was elated when Liminal 11 agreed to offer me a copy of this delightfully diverse and divine deck in exchange for a review.
Designed by Lisa Sterle, The Modern Witch Tarot was created during a low point of Lisa’s life: Jaded by the trudge of feeling trapped within a dead-end-design job, Lisa felt her creativity, passion for art, and general faith in humanity was being drained.…
Throughout lockdown, I’ve built quite the collection of tarot decks, some of which I’ve been rather lucky to receive for review purposes. Though I love each and every one of the tarot decks that I work with, there are a select few which I particularly treasure – one of which is the Hip Chick Tarot.
Designed and created by Maria Strom, The Hip Chick Tarot is a diverse, modern deck for women that’s both spiritual and practical.
Maria is a tarot reader and artist based in Athens, Georgia. She first began to read the tarot at the age of fifteen after recognising the deep, spiritual knowledge within the cards.…
Though I’m most definitely a ‘Rider-Waite’ chick when it comes to reading tarot, I do quite like to dabble with alternative divination tools and techniques when I am given the opportunity. Earlier this month, Schiffer (also known as Red Feather) Publishing very kindly sent me a copy of the ‘First Light Tarot‘, which is most certainly an alternative to the traditional tarot.
The First Light Tarot is a space-themed divination deck, featuring imagery captured by the Hubble Telescope and according to the First Light Astronomy Club, ‘First Light’ is the moment a new telescope first opens itself up to the universe.…
