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!
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.
Pagan Cats and Astrology and The Golden Dawn, oh my
Just got a new deck (a mini deck) called Tarot of Pagan Cats. I love cats. I’m marginally pagan, and I love almost anything Lo Scarabeo does. This has all three things. Also picked up a general astrology book. My Parker’s Astrology is getting a little beat up. This one is published by Llewellyn, so… Continue reading Pagan Cats and Astrology and The Golden Dawn, oh my
The great thing about Llewellyn is that they publish so much in the magickal realm that it’s easy to get lost among the really good books and the crappy books. I went on a buying spree and bought a bunch of Llewellyn’s complete book of ____ series. The first one I perused is about dreaming.… Continue reading Llewellyn books
Golden Lenormand Oracle
When I did RI Comicon a few years ago, I read Tarot cards for $10. I made more money doing that than selling books. (I’ll never forget the disgusted look another author gave me when I told him that.) Mind you, I had only one book out at the time. Two years later, I moved… Continue reading Golden Lenormand Oracle
Not sure what to think of this deck yet. I like it for its diversity, and to see women in such powerful positions (mostly nude. Why are they always nude? Is it a pride thing?). I bought this deck years back (I think, though it was black and white). I didn’t care much for it,… Continue reading Motherpeace Tarot
The Woman Magician
What a stupid fucking book. I wanted rituals for women–yeah, I got that. After reading through bullshit of “What constitutes woman?” and “How do you handle the patriarchy of the different Orders?” I’m like, for fuck’s sake. I didn’t want a feminist treatise. But I got one, just the same. By the time the author… Continue reading The Woman Magician
I bought this deck as a companion to a 3-part Tarot series by the same author. I didn’t realize until I got it that it has a lot of Christian-influenced artwork. It didn’t seem to work with me.
What do you want to tell me? A flying out card, King of Cups. A man with emotion. the next card, The Emperor, reversed, usually symbolizes my dad. I’m going to get a lecture today. (I usually call him on Sundays for a check-in.) The Moon Reversed generally means that what I see is not… Continue reading Mythic Tarot
You know, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Lenormand, with its 36 cards, is just fine. But no, this author, Ryan Edward, had to come up with 52 cards of a standard deck. First, the pictures are butt ugly. Second, the additional cards aren’t worth the price of admission. I got this as… Continue reading Maybe Lenormand
