    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    I bought it just yesterday, @Starlight. Searched for ‘coffret de Marseille’ on Amazon U.K. and it came up.
  3. Well the book that I was told was THE WORD OF GOD and all that, it's like... people wanna list rules that we can all follow with our heads and say "this is always right in all situations" and "this is always wrong in all situatios". But I have broken free from that opinion, and it's not me caving to something I don't feel no this is like... a hunch I've always had that is now being confirmed by experience. And it's not the relativist notion of "there is no true right or wrong" oh no I think there is, but I think it can't be decided by a list of rules. It's like a wavelength, it's like a light wave, it's an energy you either ride or you don't, and it's fluid toward specific situations you know what I mean? So what might be the right choice in situation A) is the wrong choice in situation B) etc. So how do we cultivate it? Yeah like you said, you gotta start letting the divine show you until you yourself begin to think like the divine.... And yeah, Tarot is definitely a phenomenal tool to add to the kit!

    Can I ask where you bought it, @Raggydoll? I've searched and only found it on French sites.
  6. Ah but I'm sure you know that there is judgement, the one that bothers us all and which causes so much trouble like you've observed and which made you go extreme, and then there's "righteous judgement" (I assume this means judging from the standpoint of the divine). The Tarot can contribute to our cultivating this. It won't do the whole job, but it can be a nice room to add to the house.

    Heck yeah I'll follow you dude. I would suggest checking out some of my playlists, my punk one is especially fun imo. I love my Acid Rock one too but it's not for everyone, those 60's recordings are pretty primitive even though the songs are aMAAAAAZING.

    I agree that the coloring on the ancien tdm is very soothing and it feels like a classic deck for good reasons. Has anyone seen what the anniversary edition looks like? Also, it said it was a limited edition but I didn’t see how many copies there would be? I went ahead and ordered one nonetheless, from England. It ended up being cheaper than from France.

    I know . I like to watch lectures by prof Bart Ehrman who is an agnostic New Testament scholar (who does history, not theology). And he has discussed this many times. He even wrote a book discussing the problematic and incorrect ideas of the Da Vinci Code and he did make it clear that Dan Brown did not come up with that Mary Magdalene-baby theory. (He actually enjoyed reading the book but he thinks it should be labeled as fiction only). It’s fascinating how it made its way into tarot though (but I had no idea about the Father Ted thing - cool!!)

    Wow! That second sketch is so full of expression and I love that you can see the details in her face up close! It’s amazing that you started it with your left hand. The completed card is lovely!

    Classic Crime Lenormand (Malpertius)

    I know very little about Lenormand, I've watched a few youtube tutorials and it seems complex. I hope to learn it someday but Tarot is more than enough to focus on right now, but that deck is veeeery cool. I love the Retro 60s/70s feel it has!!
  13. EEK! I defiitely want to find another option, it will be hard to convince my wife though. She's had close to 10 cats and all of them she had declawed and never thought anything of it, her mother is a cat lady who also didn't see anything wrong with it and she never saw any signs of you know, them being in pain or depression. But I've stumbled upon some articles that have me personally disliking the idea more and more and more. I honestly don't think we could clip his nails he would just thrash around and try to bite us, but we might be able to get those tip things on him if it can be done quickly and without having to be super precise. He's a tough one, he doesn't let you hold him very long, and he doesn't even really let you pet him unless it's on his terms. Oh he'll follow you around and force his way into your lap and lick all over you when HE wants that, but the rest of the time? You try to get near him and he just swats at you or nips at you. Very frustrating period in his life... *sigh* I'll do my best to convince my wife we should find another option though I truly will. Pretty confident it'll work too she listens to me Yay!! Thanks! Yeah like I said to Katrinka, I'm not sure that's a possibility, he's very very difficult to hold or keep still. The tip thingies she was talking about though may work. Thank you! And ok ok guys I'm gonna do everything in my power to not declaw Merlin! hahahahaha Yeah this? ^^ One of those moments that almost has me in tears.... haha ok so that's an exaggeration but I'm very moved by your words. Thank you so much, I look forward to getting to know you better! You're so right. My experience as of late has been quite the pendulum. It's like.. once I realized how judgemental my upbringing had made me I went EXTREME on the end of "I will never make a judgement again!!" And it began playing out with me entertaining all ideas, and giving everything the benefit of the doubt. It was cool cause it lead me here, but then I began to feel my identity slip away, I wasn't sure what I believed anymore, and my beliefs would change so fast on a dime it was starting to make me feel off kilter. Now I'm starting to come back to my mystical experiences and realize that much of what I've known to be true still holds true for me, and being open minded doesn't mean you just automatically assume any logical sounding opinion is better than your own. I feel my pendulum swung all the way to the other side, and now it's beginning to swing a little less, and find a nice spot in the middle. And omg you guys... I gotta say I had a period where I felt I didn't fit in here and I felt I couldn't connect (I got some readings about it on the forum too they were lovely) but that has really shifted in the last few days. All these kind words mean a ton to me, and it's just wild how it all reflects things the Tarot has been saying!! I am so honored to be accepted by you all and the feeling is quite mutual! I've always had trouble finding people who I felt were like... deep enough, real enough, open enough for me. I think that Tarot tends to appeal to people who are just like that, and then the journey of Tarot itself brings these qualities out more. So it finally does feel like... maybe I've found my people, so yeah, I'll stop gushing now it's just a little hard cause...

    The Silver Soul Tarot

    Thank you so much @LoveLightPeace! The official count as of today is 33 cards. I'm actually quite excited by my latest drawing because it started as a freestyle drawing with my left (non-dominant) hand. I kept at it with my left hand until I had something resembling a real figure (albeit not as realistic as my usual drawings). Suddenly I thought: Page of Cups! So I added the fish with my left hand too, and well... it's not the same style as my other drawings, but I'm honestly so happy with it. It's amazing how pleased I can be at art made by my left hand, and how critical and demanding I can be with art made by my right hand. I actually think that's perfect for Page of Cups. I also drew a little ATC with watercolor and ink to send to a friend.

    Hello from moi

    Would surprise me too. I mean firemaidens don't get banned ever. It would be like banning a unicorn, or a rainbow... or Olaf from Frozen. It's nonsensical.

    Hello from moi

    Probably because she had become inactive towards the end of the AT days. I remember missing her then, and wondering what was going on with her.

    But it appears in Father Ted. How cool is that ?

    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    There's LOADS of stuff all over the Camargue about this, especially in Saintes Maries-de-la-Mer, where they have exhibitions and all sorts.

    You can be fond of it all you like gregory ! Hey, I even have a Cat (the miaow type) Tarot of Marseilles (two in fact). But the Fournier is... well, sort of well... let's leave it at that. (the following is written in very tiny letters - not really a TdM. TdM doesn't do disco.) Love it all you like but don't recommend it !!

    Hello from moi

    I am certain sure she wasn't banned. No idea where that idea came from. But she was already ill.

    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    I will as from this point on respect the request, understandable, to keep this thread on topic (although it's a bit late now - it could almost be renamed) - I just want to add one thing I think maybe some people don't know. Philip Camoin didn't INVENT the story of Mary Magdalene coming to France with her and Jesus' daughter. It is an oral tradition that has been passed down for centuries, particularly in the South of France. I have never discounted it as impossible on the contrary, I think it could well be true, at least part of it. I mean, the woman had to go SOMEWHERE. And for a long time, even before Camoin's deck had been published, and before I'd even heard of him, I wondered the same as he did. I didn't only wonder, my research at the time even led me to think that maybe the Papesse represented Mary Magdalene once come to France. But that didn't last long. So when I saw the egg, I thought "oh my, he thought the same but he really believes it." I don't have time to find a really good website that speaks of this, so I'll just throw one here which gives a basic idea. I didn't read it well though - skimmed the first paragraphs. Maybe you should do some more research if you're interested and find a better website. http://www.sacredmysterytours.com/mary-magdalene#sthash.Ji0k4TNC.dpbs

    I only found out today, having missed this thread. Rest in peace, great Firemaiden.

    *cough* I am fond of the Fournier. Don't hit me.
  26. katrinka

    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    Yes. If one deck is recommended over another, I think it's important to say why - and that can often involve some criticism of the not-recommended deck.
  27. leroidetrèfle

    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    Apologises, Saturn Celeste. I can see that it may appear off-topic. However having taught TdM I do think some of the criticisms towards the Camoin-Jodorowsky (and Fournier) here quite valid when recommending a beginners’ introduction to the Marseille.
  28. leroidetrèfle

    Best Tdm Deck for Beginners

    That is my view, too. What I found with the Camoin deck was that it was potpourri of distraction. Once I knew that there was an egg, or an extra toe, they were ever-present and attention grabbing. One reason I prefer working with the Marseille-style is I’m not dealing with other people’s narratives or systems. I just have eikōns that create a tableau.
