Tattoo Tarot Interview

This deck is very special to me. The Eight Coins Tattoo Tarot is my 8th deck, and I’m an 8 in numerology. It came signed and with an extra card drawn from the creator’s personal deck… well, when it came. The USPS took my initial order and lost it in spectacular fashion. Sometimes I stillContinue reading “Tattoo Tarot Interview”

Tarot of the Silicon Dawn Interview

The Tarot of the Silicon Dawn is by far the most challenging in my collection. There are 21 unconventional arcana cards in addition to the traditional 78, including Void cards and four Fools! The personality of this deck is, in the artist’s words, “fully prepared to give you the finger.” But I adore comic bookContinue reading “Tarot of the Silicon Dawn Interview”

The Deviant Moon Tarot Interview

The Deviant Moon by Patrick Valenza is my oldest and dearest deck. I was drawn in by the dark, almost Tim Burton meets Salvador Dali aesthetic back in college and it’s the deck I’ve studied and learned on and bonded with over the last 10ish years. (Catch up on all my deck interviews at theContinue reading “The Deviant Moon Tarot Interview”

Binding of Isaac Tarot Interview

I’ve always viewed this deck more as a novelty – a collectible from one of my favorite video games ever, The Binding of Isaac. I’ve never used it before. This is a completely virgin deck! Until now. The cards depart from the traditional suit structure, instead calling on items from the game to represent suits.Continue reading “Binding of Isaac Tarot Interview”

The Wild Unknown Tarot Interview

I jumped into this latest interview with one of my more advanced decks. The Wild Unknown replaces the knights and pages with “son” and “daughter” cards for each suite. The imagery, while whimsical and gorgeous, presents in a watercolor minimalist style that connects deeply with nature instead of adhering to the traditional tarot symbolism. SoContinue reading “The Wild Unknown Tarot Interview”

Lioness Oracle Tarot Interview

My latest tarot interview reads with one of my most beautiful tarot decks, the Lioness Oracle Tarot. Tell me about yourself. X of Wands I possess the energy and strength to guide you through your commitments. I work hard and sometimes I take on too much. I’m all about fulfillment. I want to end cyclesContinue reading “Lioness Oracle Tarot Interview”

Oliver Hibert Tarot Interview

A couple weeks ago I interviewed The Golden Thread Tarot. This week, I sat down with another of my newer decks- The Tarot + The Secret Arcana by Oliver Hibert. Tell me about yourself. VIII of Swords I balance the intellectual and emotional to find the best path forward. Every trap has an escape ifContinue reading “Oliver Hibert Tarot Interview”

Golden Thread Tarot Interview

Now that I’ve amassed a healthy collection of tarot decks, I figured it’s about time I really get to know their personalities and differences at a deeper level. I’ve been using some of them for years, but others are still fairly new to me. Through an interview spread, I asked my newest deck, The GoldenContinue reading “Golden Thread Tarot Interview”

Do Tarot Cards Get Jealous?

Since 2009, I’ve been working with a deliciously dark, Tim Burton-esque tarot deck known as the Deviant Moon Tarot. I don’t remember how I discovered it or where I got it, but it was the beginning of my tarot practice and study for a series of poems I’m eternally writing. This deck has always connectedContinue reading “Do Tarot Cards Get Jealous?”
