    Bonestone and Earthflesh Tarot

    Yeah, I am not very optimistic either. But maybe Ana Tourian can help her back on track. She was part of this deck too (she made the art plus the layout of the book) so she should want to see it move along. But lets just say I am not holding my breath.

    How do you read court cards?

    awww they are not so bad, I like them but when you are starting out in tarot they are the trickiest cards of all! I recommend studying each card and making a profile in your notes or head of each card, think of them like social media personalities or on a dating website. What sort of person are they? what do they like/ dislike? what are their goals and needs? Each of the 4 of each suit type are quite different, it's interesting to study the differences! When you have a "profile" or character of each card, try to learn it and remember it. Then later on when it comes up you can use it in many ways! You can even try to fit your loved ones and family to the different personalities or take a fictional book/ film / tv and see how the personalities apply to the characters. For example in my "character profile" of the Knight of Cups in card images he rides a handsome white horse and is good looking and charming, this is someone who is romantic and like a creative poet. He or She will write you poems and woo you but when they have won you over, they often lose interest! They are not a stayer or a committer really. This is someone ruled by their heart but they forget logic and to think things through. So if someone was looking for their perfect partner in a tarot reading for a long term marriage and starting a family and this was the person that came up, it's not the best fit! But if you want a wooing person who will read you poetry around a camp fire, this is perfect! It won't last for serious commitment, they don't have staying power! But this would be wonderful for questions about creativity and expressing their emotions and this is a good card if someone is asking for job news or a career in creative or where they have to come up with a lot of ideas. But if they are asking about their career as being a philosopher or brain surgeon, this card is not great! Once you know the attributes of the character of the court card, you can apply it both as a person but also in answer to the question. If this was a daily card, it's a great day to express your emotions and be compassionate and also to be creative, create art or write poetry. It's a good day to take someone out on a date. It's not such a good day to do your tax returns or sort out all your complicated bureaucracy, the Knight just won't sit there doing it all with accuracy and this Knight can be a bit dreamy and unrealistic, so don't do really serious planning for the future and expect it to happen exactly like that, it's just dreaming Just how I use them and how I see them! They are like top trump cards, they have positives and negatives and you just have to explore each persona and learn them

    Bonestone and Earthflesh Tarot

    I don't believe we will ever get it. I have not believed in it for a long while. And what happened to the friend who was helping her ?

    Bonestone and Earthflesh Tarot

    I totally understand why you or anyone else would struggle to believe this because there has been so so many disasters and unexpected unfortunate events etc. I have myself felt frustrated from her updates about how one of her kids has a cough and now she can't get to work, and how her husband took the good laptop and so things are getting delayed... etc. But I was actually not surprised to hear this news. I was once part of her patreon and I have seen their private footage and the vlogs that feature her family (even ones her ex husband filmed himself). I absolutely believe her husband has left her and I did also hear this from someone who knows Avalon in real life. I am not out to convince you, I am just saying what I honestly believe. But the point of this thread is not to discuss whether or not she is lying. I am just informing people that it is highly unlikely that this deck will be finalized anytime soon.

    Hmmm. I don't believe it. Sorry, but this all seems rather convenient. And she's not a very good actor.

    Bonestone and Earthflesh Tarot

    Avalon made an update on youtube. She is going through a personal crisis as her husband just left her without any warning. She is now alone with her children in their off grid property and her ex husband has moved into the bigger house that they finished building only a short while ago. Presumably this will delay the project further but there isn't that much left to be done before its up to the printers and to the chinese distribution center. So hopefully she enlists friends to do the last bit and then has it over and done with.

    What Are Your Favourite Lenormand Decks?

    I went back and re-read...Decan used the term "derivative" when he was talking about the Legendary. I think what he meant was that it was derived from Lenormand, but it's not a proper Lenormand. It's silly, and it's intended to be. I reviewed it here https://fennario.wordpress.com/2016/05/10/the-legendary-lenormand/ I wouldn't recommend it as a beginner deck, for that you'd want a proper one. As a rule, I would define "proper Lenormand" as a standard, uncrowded one that has no need of titles on the cards. It shouldn't be "innovated" or any of that. Like Decan said, the Rider should be a man on a horse moving along at a fast clip. Not a woman, since it can be a young man or rival male. Not a bicycle or a car or any of that, as it can stand for large animals, knees and feet. See how that works? The best decks don't contradict the method. And Lenormand IS a method rather than a deck.

    What Are Your Favourite Lenormand Decks?

    Well you know the "canon" like the Tables of the Law of Moses lol No, more seriously, the rider is male and not a female figure, the Tower isn't Big Ben or the Eiffel Tower (at times we find that), and so on... Creativity is fine, but... Just my opinion though!

  12. Thanks for clicking here. I'm just starting out my youtube channel, but I have a clear vision of what type of reading I'm trying to do. still on my way to it but it's really important for me that: - messages that i tell are exactly how i see it in the cards. (no "he still loves you, want you, if its not the case) - themes of readings are ONLY ones that can give you relevant insights and help a reflexion in you growing. For instance, i would rather something like "What obstacles do i need to overcome in order to X" rather than "Who i will marry" If this resonate in you, then, you might like my tarot videos and I invite you to check it. (my channel have also videos about self-development, and documentation of my inner peace journey) I'm at the really beginning of it, i have a LOT to improve, but that's why i also need you Drop also your link and i would love to check your channel, facebook page, website (i'm also a web designer!). Let's grow together

    What Are Your Favourite Lenormand Decks?

    hi guys! @Decan and @katrinka, you were discussing "derivative" lenormand decks and can i just ask the dumbest question which is: derivative of what? a lot of the popular lenormand decks seem to me to be very similar to one another so i'm curious about what criteria would make a lenormand deck derivative!

    The Hermit

    It's interesting when it gets contradictory like that. I can imagine people covertly making the mano cornuta at passing monks. I'm sure it would be considered rude to do it openly! And it opens up some interesting reading possibilities - is a card on the "eye side" of the Hermit, or the "back side"? Nobody knows how evil eye beliefs started, or how they managed to get so universal with only minor variations. It's actually in Rabbinic literature. https://books.google.com/books?id=cwB8Hfkjpx0C&pg=PA176&hl=en#v=onepage&q&f=false The differences mainly seem to be concerned with who's vulnerable, and how to ward off and/or cure it. Often it's said to come from envy, but some believe that certain people just have it (usually those with extremely pale eye color) and can infect others without being envious at all. Some people protect their animals, there are horse brasses intended as apotropaic charms. Others just concern themselves with humans. Where I live, it's the Tejano variant that states babies are vulnerable. Someone admires a baby wishing they had one, and then the child gets sick with a fever. At least that's what people say. But I have had people ask to touch my hair or a piece of my jewelry "so they wouldn't give me the eye." So apparently adults can get it, too. Touching is supposed to ground it off, somehow. This can get a little problematic, as I wear a jade Pi Yao pendant, and you're not supposed to let people touch those! So I usually wear it inside my shirt or dress. Fascinating stuff.

    How do you read court cards?

    I'm having some difficulties to read court cards. I understand clearly when i watch videos explanations. But when it comes to reading, I'm like.. ._. There are cards that you feel more connected to... and there are court cards

    Can You do a Tarot Reading for Yourself?

    I love reading for myself. When someone ask me if I loved more this ex past relationship or that ex, I'm like "Well, you can't compare. It's just two really different love stories". I have the same feeling with "reading for myself" vs "for others". It's just not the same rules, approach, and goals. I can understand that not everyone can read for himself. In my case, it just feels right, as I'm fully aware of the biased vibes i could get. But it's also by phases. Sometimes i feel i don't want to read for me, and only for others. Sometimes it's the opposite. If you really need to read for yourself, you'll do it.

    What Is Your Spirit Animal?

    Got a dog. Which is weird as I dreamed of a spirit guide looking like a dog couple of months ago. I'll be puzzled now.
  19. I still use RWS a lot, too. But I like to bring a little Thoth to the interpretations. Waite narrowed the lens a bit overmuch, IMHO.

    let's share our tarot journey! -hello from france

    Welcome to the forum @theholysticvagabond! It's sounds like you've had an intense journey with the cards so far. I hope you will enjoy your time here and continue to learn!
  22. Hello tarot lovers, I'm the holystic vagabond and I'm part of the lucky humans that had tarot entering their lives. -who would imagine that?- I was completely CLOSED to any sort of spirituality in the past. Rationality and science were my mantra. But for some reasons, tarot chosed me (at least, the feeling i had): I had a spiritual awakening, and many signs showed up that led me to the cards. Did you experienced something like that too? -like a need- I spent night and days learning about the interpretation of the cards (and still learning every day). But it took me a while to share and "confess" my passion to my surrounding. Especially in my country (france), tarot is not something well received. Is it the same in your country? Anyway! (i talk too much) I'm now reading for myself, for others, and just started recording general tarot reading videos on YT. It's an intense journey, and I would love to hear yours !

    Changes you would make in decks

    YES. And I wish they'd do away with that glossy stock once and for all! Schiffer is really bad about that.
  24. katrinka

    Can You do a Tarot Reading for Yourself?

    In certain contexts. You certainly don't want the Sun to turn up for somebody who's trying to do something evil, as it would make them successful. But when you fall into the muddy interpretations, the reading gets muddy. And then you're asking for help with a spread that ought to be crystal clear.
