Yes, No, and Maybe type of questions

Yes, No, Maybe

I don’t recommend the use of the ‘Yes or No’ type of questions because I have my reserves regarding the accuracy of the answers to these questions. That doesn’t mean, it is not possible to use the Tarot cards for this purpose. Read more…

Unified Esoteric Tarot deck

Written by  on September 2, 2017

UET-Attila-Blaga

The Unified Esoteric Tarot deck is a standard 78 cards Tarot deck, resulted from 25 years of research, study and practical experience of card reading. The main idea at the foundation of this deck was to reveal the hidden connection between all the branches of the esoteric sciences and provide a very intuitive instrument both for beginner and advanced Tarot practitioners. I provide a modern instrument of self-exploration and development based on both the ancient teachings and modern psychology. Read more…

Professional vs. non-professional Tarot reader

Written by  on June 29, 2017

professional-vs-non-professional

Someone formulated a question regarding the ‘professional’, respectively ‘non-professional’ quality of a Tarot reader. It’s a pretty good question I guess.
Let’s start with what the vast majority believes and expressed in different forms: “Professional can find a market demand for the type of service offered”; “To me, “professional” means someone who makes their living off of what they are doing.”; “Anyone who lives off of readings / gets paid for readings – is technically a ‘professional’.” – and so on.
I would agree if it would be about hookers, hired assassins, or any other ‘shady’, respectively purely physical/material services. But we are talking about a ‘spiritual’ service which requires a higher degree of ‘spirituality’ – awareness, enlightenment, consciousness, call it as you please. It requires a different type of understanding not only of the things we can see, touch, smell or taste but also of the unseen (world). Read more…

The Four Worlds and Three Pillars spread

Although generally, I prefer the quick and simple spreads, three up to seven cards, sometimes, some specific and complex questions, requires some more in-depth analyses.
This 12 cards spread is highly recommended for personal development, so-called ‘spiritual’ matters, but it is also an excellent choice to obtain a detailed answer to any specific question regardless its subject. Read more…

The Way of Tarot by Alejandro Jodorowsky, book review

Written by  on May 23, 2017

Alejandro Jodorowsky - The Way of Tarot - 2009I heard lot of good things about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s book on Tarot, then I read a couple of positive comments on different Tarot forums and specific social media groups. Finally, I stumbled across a quite interesting book synopsis which determined to read the book.
I have to admit, I had quite high expectations, and somewhat I was pretty disappointed. I will explain.
For the beginning, let’s see who Alejandro Jodorowsky is?
Born to Jewish-Ukrainian and Polish parents in Chile, Alejandro Jodorowsky Prullansky (17 February 1929) is a Chilean-French film and theatre director, screenwriter, playwright, actor, author, poet, producer, composer, musician, comics writer, and spiritual guru, currently living in Paris (France).

Gypsy Oracle Cards – cards and meaning

Written by  on December 2, 2015

Evoking another time and place, this reproduction of a nineteenth-century deck characterizes a bygone era, while offering old-fashioned guidance and wisdom. With any sort of fortune deck it is already suggested that the reader needs to read between the lines since the placement of the cards will not necessarily make sense towards the question asked.

Written by  on November 26, 2015

I generally do not care to write about non-tarot decks. However, this one intrigued me because it is a variation of the idea used in the Storyteller Tarot. The idea is that cards can be used to create a story from start to finish including everything from character development to plot. This 64 card deck is designed to be useful in many different ways.

The Art Deco fortune telling cards

Written by  on November 26, 2015

The Art Deco cards first published by Piatnik in 1936, and the poster like images relating to the current times and the social concerns. When you study the cards deeper, than the image simplicity suggest at first sight, it reveals its secret, a deep understanding about human nature, the psyche, helping to understand not only others but yourself as well.
