The Sidewayz Tarot by Roxi Sim-Hermsen and Jade Storm

The Sidewayz Tarot by Roxi Sim-Hermsen and Jade Storm

Each Tarot deck has its own body, soul and spirit. While one may choose to purchase a particular deck instinctively, love at first sight, it takes time and patience to learn a deck and get into its groove.
The body of a deck is represented by its aesthetic content, its particular artwork and design. The “eyecatcher”, as the professionals call it. Once a deck appeals to our taste and standards, an emotional connection is established, and that’s how we get in touch with the soul of the deck.
The third step is the most challenging. Discovering the spirit of a deck requires dedication and conscious effort. It is about learning and understanding how each deck works and how we can make the most out of it. While most modern decks are knowingly or by simple mechanical copying are based on the traditional Golden Dawn system, some choosing the Waite-Smith, others the Crowley-Harris pattern, there are also notable exceptions.

The mystical Moon

Bram Stoker wrote, “Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplated by men’s eyes because they know -or think they know- some things which other men have told them. Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explains not, then it says there is nothing to explain”.

Very few people are aware that the ancient Mesopotamian Moon-gods were masculine. Semitic tribes Read more The mystical Moon
