Tarot Reading for Oct 31 – Nov 6

Happy Halloween!!!!! For this week’s reading, I’m using the Trick or Treat Tarot by Barbara Moore, which was recently gifted to me by one of my Tarot students, Julie, who expertly edged all the cards in orange, making this deck extra special to me 🙂

If you’d like Julie to edge your deck for you, she can be reached at tweettarot@att.net

Have a good week!

A few highlights about these decks:

♥ Card stock is very high quality – matte finish, good thickness, gilded edging, vibrant colours!

♥ The boxes are all lovely – good quality, attractive and with a magnetic flap (yes!) and each deck comes with it’s own little guidebook.

♥ The guidebooks are larger than your typical LWB (little white book) making it easier to read (no tiny print!)

Decks are smaller sized (cards measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches) making them easy to handle, travel friendly and it kind of brings a more fun, carefree energy to a reading.

All card backs look the same across all the decks, allowing you to mix and match the cards to create your own, unique “hybrid deck” (info on how to do this is included in the hardcover glossary)

♥ The Major Arcana in the Tarot deck all form a continuous picture if you line them up side by side (I demo this in my video). And each minor suit tells a story – I particularly love the story told in the Suit of Swords (you’ll see what I mean if you watch the video above).

This is a really lovely boxed set and I feel lucky to have it in my collection.  I’m especially excited about the Tarot deck – the images are simple, sweet and really capture a particular vibe – I can’t wait to start working with it!

I’m also pretty excited about the Rune deck – I made myself a set of runes many years ago and just never learned what they all meant but with this deck in my possession I can see myself finally learning.

All decks (and the glossary) in this set can also purchased separately.

Unboxing the Wide Open Tarot!

Join me as I unbox the Wide Open Tarot! This bright, sparky, minimalist Tarot deck is unique, full of personality and really fun to read with….

A few highlights about this deck:

Card stock is very good – it’s sturdy and thick with a nice, matte finish (my favourite!) and cards are a nice size (7 x 12 cm) making them pretty easy to shuffle.

The box is super cute and sturdy and the guidebook is also thick and full of helpful info about the cards. I don’t pay much attention to the little books that come with most decks, but if you’re a beginner, you probably will and so this detail will be important to you.

The cards don’t have borders on them – YAY! And the style is very clean and uncluttered with minimal detail and symbols, but just enough symbolism to help you tap into each card and jump start your intuitive process.

This is a fun deck to have, no matter what your level of Tarot skill is, and I look forward to exploring this deck more in my weekly readings and Tarot journalling sessions 🙂

This deck is illustrated by Camamblo and guidebook is written by Ashleigh Henry.
