The Return of the Situational Deck by Toni Puhle, author of REDFeather’s newest release: Rainbow Kipper (with artist Steven Bright). The Kipper Cards are making a comeback with many readers grabbing for their favorite decks and laying down a predictive read that amazes the sitter in situational accuracy. This German system dates back to the 19th century and the original deck highlights moments in the everyday Biedermeier lifestyle. But how is Kipper becoming so applicable…

Dancing With the Riches of Your Life

by Kass Thomas, author of REDFeather’s newest release: Dancing With Riches. “Life is so crazy, and people often amaze me the way they’re always running around. They don’t take the time to really be real, they’re too busy, too busy to feel. And years come and go while they waste all of their time trying to be something they cannot be. If they just slowed down, then maybe they’ll see, all the time they had,…

by Kooch N. Daniels and Victor Daniels, authors of Sacred Mysteries: The Chakra Oracle (illustrated by Pieter Weltervede), and Tarot at a Crossroads: The Unexpected Meeting of Tarot & Psychology. Kooch N. Daniels is also the author of the Mystic Spirit Tarot Playbook.

What is Beautiful?

by Jay R. Rivera, author of Beautiful Creatures Tarot (1st and 2nd Edition) with illustrator Jasmine Becket-Griffith. The more often we see the things around us — even the beautiful and wonderful things — the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds — even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see…

Ripened Narcissism

…A Mystic’s Perspective by Ari Honarvar, creator of Rumi’s Gift Oracle Cards. Myths, told from a different perspective, can change our outlook and inject our life with a sense of joy and freedom. One of my favorite retellings is featured in the “Confidence Card” of Rumi’s Gift Oracle Set. In the Greek Myth of Narcissus, the ill-fated chap falls in love with his own image in the lake. This adoration renders him unable to move…

Target Practice

by Gabi Angus-West, creator of Bonefire Tarot. Have you ever approached a deadline? And did it occur that the word deadline may own a rather more sinister origin story than merely the unpleasantness you feel as you strive to meet expectations agreed to and placed upon you while striving not be labeled as an over-promiser (or worse, an under-deliverer)? Etymologically, the word “deadline” initially connotated one drawn around imprisoned Union soldiers in Confederate prisons. They…

Eternal Seeker Oracle

by Pamela Steele, creator of REDFeather’s newest release: Eternal Seeker Oracle. Inspired by the tarot’s major arcana, the Eternal Seeker Oracle has evolved from over 40 years of tarot study and reflection. In 1978, I acquired my first deck, the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot. After returning to the motel where my cousin, Maya, and I were camped, I opened the cards and laid them on the bed to have a first look at my first deck. After…

A Cultural Influence on Tarot: Tarot of the Moors

by Gina G. Thies, author of Tarot of the Moors and Tarot Coupling: Resources and Resolutions for Relationship Readings. When I was introduced to tarot cards over 25 years ago in a reading at a UFO conference in New Orleans, I could not have imagined the odyssey it would be as I celebrate my first published tarot deck. When tarot is mentioned or referenced, many times for those who have never had the opportunity to…

Reawakening of Life

I love the coming of Spring. Although I enjoy each distinctive season in its own right, there is something so refreshing, so charming, and well, INSPIRING about Springtime. It’s as though the season of new growth, budding vegetation, and mating spurs us all to dream of what might be. In many ways, the other three seasons of the year—Summer’s abundance, Autumn’s release, and Winter’s introspection—can be seen as working together in a sort of synergistic…

Dreams, Hummingbirds & the Soul

by Yasmeen Westwood, award-winning author of The Tarot of Enchanted Dreams. It’s going to be two years in November since my first tarot deck — The Tarot of Enchanted Dreams — was released. What an amazing moment it is, to see your work being sold all over the world! The deck was named runner-up in the CARTA Awards and won the Bronze at the COVR Awards, too. Not bad for a deck that was created…
