The Star Tarot 2nd Edition

by Cathy McClelland If you are not familiar with The Star Tarot, I would like to introduce it to you. The Star Tarot’s creation started in 1991. I decided to paint my own Tarot Majors, beginning with The Fool. These images would be part of “The Star Tarot Deck,” a name inspired by my love and fascination for the stars. Each image became a labor of love, taking up to three months to complete. In…

That being said,…

by Paige Ozma Ashmore, author of Red Feather’s newly released Tarot of the Kingdoms.                                          “​May you live in interesting times.”   –Unknown Today there is no better time to be a magician.

Reflecting on Creating The Transparent Tarot

by Emily Carding, multi-talented creator of The Transparent Tarot (both 1st and 2nd Editions), The Transparent Oracle, and Tarot of the Sidhe. The Bolt of Inspiration It’s 12 years now since The Transparent Tarot was first released, and so it must have been a good couple of years before that (at a guess — publishing is a slow process but also I’m terrible with time) when I first had the idea and immediately started working…

Empathic Card Reading

This week’s guest author is Michelle Motuzas, creator of The Shamanic Healing Oracle and The Empathic Oracle (with Steve Wilson). How to Use Your Empathic/ Intuitive Skills in Card Reading by Michelle Motuzas Empathy? Intuition? Psychic? Are they the same? Are they different? Do they overlap?  Does it matter? When Red Feather asked me to write a blog article on using empathy to read oracle cards, I jumped at the chance, mostly because I thought…

Collaging a Soul Seal

by Amy Zerner, co-author with Monte Farber of The Creativity Oracle and The Enchanted Love Tarot Perhaps there has been no better time to explore ourselves as the creators of our own lives. While so many of us are home or isolated, many of us find ourselves sifting through what remains, missing those we love, longing for experiences gone, and piecing together the parts of ourselves that seem lost to us right now. This is…
