Tarot School Correspondence Course Review

The Tarot Skeptic

IMG_3634I signed up for the Tarot School Correspondence Course in May of 2012. I’d been flirting with the idea for several months. I picked up my first pack of tarot cards back when I was thirteen (I’m in my thirties now) and had taught myself to use them by reading books and practicing on friends. I was well-read, but not particularly experienced, and definitely not confident.

My professional life is in academia and teaching, so I’m a big fan of organized learning. I need a lot of structure, whether I’m creating it for myself or working though someone else’s. I was interested in applying some of the same formalities to my own studies of tarot: set reading materials, homework, practice activities, and feedback from an expert I respected and trusted.

There are a lot of tarot courses available online and through correspondence (nevermind the countless books that provide all kinds…

Tarot Mucha 01 Box

I kept dragging my feet on whether to join the Tarot Mucha bandwagon, but here it is, and sometimes you just have to give in to the tarot reader majority when they’re all gushing over a certain deck, because they tend to be right. There are so many reasons to get this deck that I don’t even know how to process my thoughts and begin this review.

I’m loving it so much and will probably find myself using it in professional reading settings. It’s also a fantastic starter deck for a beginner reader who wants to commence study with the RWS tradition but may be having a hard time connecting artistically to the original Rider-Waite-Smith deck.

Tarot Mucha 02 Deck Set

The Tarot Mucha is inspired by the artistic style of Alphonse Mucha (1860 – 1939), an Art Nouveau painter and illustrator. While his commercial works were the ones that gained fame, e.g., his postcards, advert…

A weekly reading for 25-31/5 2015

2015-05-24 18.41.46

I made a spread to do a weekly reading that I think is going to suit me. I seldom has the time during the week to get any reflection time with my cards so I will try doing it this way.

The nine cards are all from Tarot Illuminati by Erik C Dunne and the Oracle card are from Oracle of the Mermaids by Lucy Cavendish.

Queen of Pentacles. Avoid this: During this week I have to try to maintain a balance between work and home, a balance between spending and saving as this is also the week for when we get our salaries… I think the card tells me to not “over” anything

1 of Wands. Monday is a day with fresh ideas, where I will feel optimistic at work, or maybe someone else reveals new ideas. Do something different than I usually do things can lead to positive news.

The World. Tuesday is a sort of a end-of-a-phase day, a pretty good day of harmony and feelings of being an integrated part of the work.

8 of Wands. Wednesday will be a day of swift anything – results, action, messages. Act responsible and go with the flow.

The Empress. Thursday I will see results of work previously done even if I feel overloaded right now with work. I need to have a createive outlet today – maybe knit or create something on the computer…

4 of Cups. Friday will probably be a bit boring and I will not feel the need to seek out other people, I need a bit of reflection time

The Magician. Saturday will see a focused energy, maybe via the computer or other modern technology. everything I try to achieve will depent on myself.

Queen of Cups. Sunday is Mother’s Day here in Sweden and it looks like that in the cards too, even if maybe the girls will bicker on each other a bit… a nurturing, nice day to follow my heart.

The Devil. Do this week: Tough one here… Don’t make rash decisions but instead plan carefully. If you can try to break free of negative patterns of behaviour.

Oracle guidance for this week: Receptivity – a week of abundance is waiting for you – be open to recieve the gift of love from the Universe.

Tarot Spread – Happy Anniversary!

Deck Review of the Tao Oracle Cards by Ma Deva Padma

I love this deck and dont use it as much as it deserves…

Tao Oracle Deck 01 First Three

I’ve fallen in love… with the Tao Oracle deck by Ma Deva Padma published by St. Martin’s Press. This is the I Ching oracle deck. It’s a deck of 64 cards based on the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching Book of Changes. Padma’s paintings are emotional, textured, and fully expressive of each of the hexagrams they represent. A quote from the artist: “The evolution and creation of my paintings is sparked by a deep and intensely personal journey into the realm of the subconscious — the kingdom of archetypes and the home of mysterious symbols.”

Tao Oracle Deck 02 Packaging

The deck is beautifully packaged in a sturdy high-gloss box. It comes with a 310-page perfect-bound guidebook that contains the author’s personal interpretations of the 64 hexagrams. St. Martin’s Press really out-does the more popular tarot and oracle deck publishers du jour. I cannot praise the quality of this deck enough.

Tao Oracle Deck 03 Guidebook

The guidebook is…
