Ridiculous Deck Flip Through

When I was in elementary school, I loved the grotesque humor of the Garbage Pail Kids. Snot dripping, vomit spewing, head-bursting, skin melting grossness. It was kid humor heaven.

My mom, however, did not approve. Probably for good reason. There was a lot of unhealthy social mockery and cartoonish violence in them for sure.

Well, now I am an adult and I do-what-I-want, MOM! I gave in and splurged the $25 for the official Garbage Pail Kids Tarot Deck.

It has a book written by a legit pro tarot reader, Minerva Siegel, so I felt validated. The deck also does a decent job translating the original Waite-Smith Symbolism into the grody theme.

A Pandemic Deck

The collective experience of 2020 was powerful. Around the world, we ALL sheltered in place. We ALL faced our fears of illness on such a grand scale.

Many of us faced loneliness, income loss, and/or depression.
Yet, many of us also found a sense of relief to slow down, reconnect with our inner introvert, make art, read books, or binge shows.
In the US, we also witnessed an uprising of protest for human rights, and many of us added our voice in our own way.

All of the above is true for me. Perhaps it was for you as well.

Take a moment to reflect on your personal journey with such a powerful moment in recent history. How have you grown or changed since then?

Deck-adent Tarot

This week, I share with you a view into my favorite new deck, The Tarot of Mystical Moments by Catrin Welz-Stein.

It more than satisfies for myself as a reader. However, it’s also not an easy starter deck. The images don’t wholly express the meanings of each card. Many are very simple in their symbolism.

That is why it adds so much to your life as a lover of meaningful art to really learn the 78 cards of the traditional Tarot. Once you grasp the essence of each card, which I teach you how to do in my upcoming online live course, you can read with any deck that you feel drawn to.

This might very well be the last chance to get this class live in-person with me! Early bird rate ends Monday.

Sovereign Oracle Deck

Theresa Pridemore has released 3 expansion decks for her word-based oracle deck. This is an accessible deck for a wordsmith or someone who is interested in divination, but not keen to dive into the depths of symbology.
