Tarot In Review: An Unfolding Journey

There is no such thing as just a deck of cards. Each deck has a special energy or story to tell. They have a very distinct purpose and tend to be heavily imprinted with the essence of their creators. This blog will explore both tarot and oracle decks and delve into their story, their purpose and how best you as a reader can utilize the gifts and abilities each deck has to offer.

Leeza Robertson

Leeza Robertson

Leeza Robertson is the most nonspiritual spiritual person you will ever meet. Her resistance to the New Age way of life set her on spiritual quest like no other. This began in 2006 when Leeza was first introduced to the concept of power animals. Then in 2008 she had her very first encounter with the fae world, which lead to her numerous radio interviews on shows like the very popular Tarot Talk. In 2009 Leeza lost her site due to a sinus infection. In this 3mth blindness she started seeing tarot spreads and cards along with images of the people the readings where for.
In 2011 Leeza made a conscious choice to take her relationship with tarot to a much deeper level and that is when she began writing about tarot, the cards and teaching others the many mysteries of the ever unfolding path that is tarot. Today she is a member of the American Tarot Association and runs a monthly study group called Tarot and Tea.
In 2013 Leeza was approached by Llewellyn World Wide to produce her very first Tarot deck, The Awakened Animal Tarot. Through the creation of this deck Leeza has forged an even stronger bond with the cards, their energy and the deeper aspects of their archetypal teachings.
Tarot Spreads with Barbara Moore in Review

Every so often a book comes along that just grabs your attention. Barbara Moore's Tarot Spreads – Layouts & Techniques to Empower your readings, is one of those books. Though, full disclosure, it didn't initially reel me in. I bought this not long after it came out. I immediately sought out the 3 card spreads, which are my personal favorite type of spreads and found a whole section dedicated to them. Then I got busy and put the book away.

It happens, right?

Blue Birds and Lenormand Cards In Review

Before I launch into this weeks review I have a confession to make. I SUCK at Lenormand. I am so bad at using these cards I am not really sure why I own any Lenormand decks at all. When Lynn Sparrow from US games told me she had sent me a Lenormand deck to review my heart sunk. Needless to say I was screwed. The deck was already in the mail and on its way to me. I either figured out how to use these cards or hang my head in shame and admit defeat.

This review falls somewhere in the middle of figuring these cards out and admitting defeat. I am not sure where that is exactly, but it's the intersecting points between knowing enough to pull this review off but not knowing enough to actually read anyone beyond myself with any real confidence.

In review – Crazy Sexy Love Notes by Kris Carr

So you may have noticed I have been MIA. In fact many of you may have even thought this blog had died a natural death. It's a fair call and I would probably have thought the same thing. But alas, I have just been writing my butt off for Llewellyn.

More on my own work later.

Not A Match Made In Oracle Heaven - Art Through The Eyes Of The Soul

Art through the eyes of the Soul by Cheryl Yambrach Rose – More post, less of a review

This review has been a year in the making and not because I am super lazy, but because I have been trying my hardest to like this deck of cards. Alas no matter how hard I try this deck and I just can't seem to become friends. Which is why this is going to be less of a review and more of a post about me, the deck and how we have had to go our separate ways.

    I have it. I don't use it for readings. I do use it for meditation. The art is amazing.

Oracle Of Initiation In Review

On March 6th through to March 8th I attended the North West Tarot Symposium, or NWTS. This was their maiden conference and I have to say I was incredibly impressed. The quality of the speakers and workshops was outstanding. And I include myself and my workshop partner Amy Barilla in that mix. My number one aim at any conference is to network with as many fascinating people as possible. OK fascinating to me. And I was not disappointed.

Over the next few months I will be featuring some of these incredible peeps on this blog, but I had to start with the one person who just impressed me to my core. This goddess is a piece of work and I mean that in the most empowering way possible. Mellissae Lucia is truly a trail blazing diva and her story not only needs to be told, but retold over and over again.

WIN A Collectors Copy of Llewellyn's Classic Tarot!

In 2013 I had the pleasure of attending Be The Change, Suzanne Evans conference extravaganza. During this 4 day event I learned a lot and took home some Suzanne Evans quotation gems, but one of the ones that has stuck to me is when Suzanne was talking about business models and product creation she said and I quote “You don't have to reinvent the wheel, but for God's sake paint it”. This deck is in my mind Llewellyn's painted wheel.

The Llewellyn Classic Tarot is a reworking of the traditional Rider Waite deck but, it has some nice new spins that give it a new lease on life without it subtracting from the feel of the original version. In my mind this deck is so good that anyone at any level of tarot experience can pick this deck up and immediately immerse themselves in it. This is mainly because of the incredible companion book. This book is so good it could very easily be sold as without the deck. It is that jam packed with tarot knowledge.
