Reblog: Wicca Moon Tarot

The above is a nice review of a tarot deck created by a friend of mine.

Dangling Pentacles Tarot

Here’s a gem I stumbled across on EBay a few weeks ago. It’s a self-published deck from England, and very probably the single most pagan Tarot deck I have seen. While it’s based on the Rider-Waite, there are significant changes to many of the cards. I wish I could show you the whole deck, but copyright prevents this. While the art is not always sophisticated (some of the figures, particularly on the court cards) seem somewhat flat, there are others that really stand out.

One thing I love is the cards are borderless, and large. The card stock seems good, far less flimsy that certain commercial publishers’ decks. They’re not slick, so handling them is more sure and they’re not likely to simply slip as you shuffle them. They are large, roughly 97mmx148mm (just over 3 6/8″ x 5 7/8″) so those with smaller hands might find them a challenge…

All Hallows

I had made quite a number of plans for All Hallows eve – I was going to set a dumb supper, sit out for the night as I usually do, and indulge in a bit of scrying.   Unfortunately, the gods had other plans.  I was ill and spend the night with indoor plumbing. 

To be honest, I am not sure it wasn’t what I deserved.  I had noticed the change in the air about 14 days ago and I could feel it building up to a peak, but I ignored it.  After all, I had booked the 31st October and 1st November off work in order to honour the occasion.   I knew the peak had passed and winter was now upon us and I had missed the shift.  I supposed I deserved a dose of illness as a punishment for ignoring my instincts.   From now on, I am going to have to make a concerted effort to listen to the landscape and, as work are so flexible, book the days off I know I will need as and when.

At least the days for solstice are fixed.
