Dark Fairytale Tarot Deck Review and Interview

The Dark Fairytale Tarot is a Lo Scarabeo deck illustrated by Raffaele De Angelis. It is inspired by both the Waite Smith Tarot and the Thoth Tarot, with Justice as Major Arcana number 8 and Strength as 11.

If you are looking for a dark/gothic themed deck with fully illustrated pips (unlike the Anne Stokes Gothic Tarot), this may be the deck you've been looking for.

Mixed Oracle Spread with Tarot Charms, Random Words and an Oracle Card

Ever since I got my beautiful Tarot Charms from the lovely Julie of The Witches Coven, I have been wanting to have a play with them but then a house move got in the way. Now that we have all finally settled in and the kids are back at school, I decided to create a mixed oracle spread to use with these charms.

Like for the Magpie Oracle spread I created over on Seer Pathways, I decided to use a random word generator but this time I decided to allow an oracle card from the Energy Oracle to give the central theme for the reading.


Get to Know Your Dragon Guide Tarot Spread

Do you like dragons? A lover of fairy tales, they have always fascinated me! The fact that they exist in the myth and lore of all cultures around the world is enough to make you realise that they are real even if most people can't see them these days.

Have you perhaps had the (rather terrifying) pleasure of meeting a dragon already? I met one shortly after an attunement to dragon Reiki. She was bent over my bed one night as I woke up. I found myself completely hypnotised by her gaze.


5 Misconceptions and 5 Realistic Expectations of Tarot Readers

5 Common Misconceptions People Have of Tarot Readers

1. Mind Reading? Contrary to popular belief, Tarot Readers are not mind readers. Depending on the reader's own personal style, you may or may not have to state your question out loud but what comes out in the reading is a reflection of the issue at hand, not a result of the Tarot Reader being inside your mind.

2. Psychic? Tarot Reader does not equal Psychic. There are Tarot Readers who are psychic and Tarot Readers who are not. Being psychic does not necessarily make you a better Tarot Reader. If it is important to you that your Tarot Reader is Psychic too, ask!


The Carpe Diem Tarot Spread - Dedicated to Robin Williams

A huge fan of Robin Williams, both as an actor/comedian and as a human being, I have decided to dedicate today's Tarot Spread to him for all the smiles and human warmth he brought to all of our lives.

One of the films I have really fond memories of is the Dead Poet Society and the picture quote above is from that film. My earliest memory of Robin Williams is the 70's sitcom Mork and Mindy, making him one of the first actors I have clear memories of. He made an impression on me then and continued to do so for almost four more decades.

Robin Williams is thought to have committed suicide due to severe depression. I find that so poignant when his own life and work served as a beacon of hope for so many. He is the archetypal Wounded Healer, giving to others what he was incapable of giving to himself. 

The Carpe Diem Tarot Spread is based on the Top 5 Regrets of the Dying:
