Goetia, Tarot in Darkness

A tarot lady on YouTube mentioned this as her “disappointing” deck of 2022. She unboxed it and I really liked the pictures. Even though they’re not RWS-based, they’re still pretty. Unlike Occult Tarot, they don’t use the drawn pictures from the Key of Solomon, Ars Goetia. 78 cards, with a couple of doubles. Also, each… Continue reading Goetia, Tarot in Darkness

Planners for 2023

I am a calendar hog. I love buying planners and journals and dated things every year. I used to buy six or seven calendars during the month of December to prepare for January, and try to write in each one every day. There was a journal, a one-word/sentence datebook, a wall calendar, a planner that… Continue reading Planners for 2023

Tarot for Yourself

I have this as a physical book. Mary K. Greer is the best author on tarot, ranking right up there with Theresa Reid. This workbook is detailed (if repetitive). I used a separate notebook for most of it, but I never finished the book. 4 stars

Israel Regardi

ZZZZ So dense. I tried to read four of his books, but it was like plowing through the Canterbury Tales in Old English. Golden Dawn, Tree of Life, Garden of Pomegranates, and Middle Pillar. They were physical books, which makes it even worse. Two stars for all of them.

The Essential Golden Dawn

For such a small book, it’s jam packed with information that is necessary for you to decide whether or not you really want in on the Golden Dawn. After reading this, I found that maybe, just maybe, ceremonial “high” magic isn’t right for me. I’ve read four books on high magic, and all of them… Continue reading The Essential Golden Dawn

The Magic of Tarot

by Sasha Graham. I wrote my review of this book in Goodreads before reading the other reviews. I gave it 4 stars and did not finish it because the last third was card meanings. I also found myself skimming through the first half of the book. It was so choppy, meant for someone to work… Continue reading The Magic of Tarot

Holistic Tarot Review (part 1)

by Benebell Wen. When I first saw this book, I was like, “$21.00 for the Kindle edition? Screw that.” Little did I know that the entire book is over 800 pages! I bought the physical copy and was indeed surprised at the size of it. The size didn’t scare me. I read through the first… Continue reading Holistic Tarot Review (part 1)

Llewellyn Sale!

Some books were 50% off, so, of course, I jumped at the chance to get them. I compared them to the Kindle books, and purchased the physical books if they were cheaper. Crystal Talismans which consisted of four crystals for Love, Success, Fortune or Well-being. I chose Fortune. Adventurine, Hemataite, White Moonstone and Clear Quartz… Continue reading Llewellyn Sale!

Llewellyn’s books

Read so far a book on Dreams, which was worthless. Just finished Complete Book of Divination, which is a really good overview of different kinds of divination, from Augury to Tarot. Four stars on Goodreads. Complete Book of Ceremonial Magick is next in the pile.
