    What's The Postman Bringing?

    @Danvers I added some pics of my deck over in the unboxings thread, if you like to see it

    Unboxings and First Impressions

    Yesterday I finally received the first copy of my own oracle deck! My goal was to create a personal intuitive deck that did not have any keywords, just evocative imagery that would tell stories when laid out in a row. That is why I am calling them Intuitive Reading Cards. I outlined the deck so that it would be balanced and multi faceted and I altered stock photos to fit my vision. There are many layers to each card and I am eager to discover more as I put them to use. I know that I will make a second printing because there are some minor changes and additions I want to make now that I have it in front of me. But this is a sneak peek at what it looks like! This is a fairly small deck - poker size - and it fits my hand perfectly. There is a total of around 70 cards at the moment. And I’m really loving it! Here is the back: And some cards. I have found that I like to read them in rows of three. Like you can see there are no borders and no titles/keywords. I do have initial keywords written down but they won’t have much impact on my readings since they are intuitive.

    7 of Pentacles

    I did promise to feature some different takes on this particular card, so here goes! Let's start with the more 'common' ones, that emphasize patience. Like the Halloween tarot: He doesn't seem very frustrated, but rather pleased with himself. And, I mean - a scarecrow that successfully grows that many beautiful pumpkins do have a lot to be proud of. But this girl (from the Stretch tarot), on the other hand, seems a bit more underwhelmed and frustrated: Spolia tarot focuses more on the potential and the growth: While light seer's tarot emphasizes that there is someone in charge (or who can take charge) of the growth: But lets take a look at some cards that show different angles than those above! Stella's tarot is more in line with Thoth and the theme of failure. I like this card because it show how you can feel trapped by your achievements and by your goals: It also seems to imply that you no longer are (or feel) in control of what happens and that you can feel vulnerable in your position. Another thing that I tend to see in this card is that there are resources to be found but that they are generally not available to you. Sometimes an investment is locked in a business, but it can also mean that you are not the breadwinner in the family or that someone else has charge of the funds (allowances and family money could be indicated, especially with the ten of pentacles). Then there is the Crone tarot, which takes a whole other approach and focuses on travel: A peek in the small version of the guidebook: How about the eastern philosophical approach? Let's check the Roots of Asia: We will look at the guidebook for this one too: And finally, a look at the shamanic approach in the Greenwood tarot: (Here's a snippet from my greenwood binder that has Chesca's original interpretations in it): Then it becomes something very different again. Clearly there are more than one way of looking at this archetype and I find it fascinating to see the many angles portrayed by different creators! I hope other people enjoyed this too

  6. What a great reply! I can totally see why that would surprise you. And what an amazing thing to discover! It must feel so good to be comfortable making videos!

    I don't know where you are, but the top place I'd run with in the UK is Watkins in London. If you can ever go there you'll be bowled over. Watkinsbooks.com You can always email them to find what you want. And you can buy lo scarabeo decks direct from them.

    @Saturn Celeste no problem! I had no idea either until recently. @Rupicapra, thanks, I'll check them out!
  12. Hi Mark Foot - I have a few questions. You say the Fool is the main card - does this mean it is part of a larger spread, and if so perhaps you could post the whole spread in the Readings section? I'm not sure how valuable or relevant a discussion of the meaning of just a piece of a spread can be. Why did you decide to use two clarifiers? What deck did you use and how did you lay the cards out? And where did you place the clarifiers? I find the expression "general reading" very vague. I'm never sure exactly what people mean or if they all mean the same thing. What were you hoping to learn from the cards? And I'm curious as to how these cards led to your interpretations. That's all for now but if I think of more I may be back! Of course if you really just want comments on the meaning of these three cards together, just disregard my questions! Love, Grandma
  13. I did it. Starting week 2. Haven't done the 9 card diagnostics but I have done the preliminary and one card reading mentioned in the week 1 reading box and the initiate reading. So I have to do the Monday reading and all the other Monday activities, the 9 card reading, and.....I think that's it for readings. Then week 2 will be started I think. Woof. I hadn't really grasped there'd be so much homework in between. It's pretty quick though I guess.....Hm It's kinda put my coloring along the wayside though. Ah well. I'll be doing at least one card every Tuesday anyway.
  14. I am literally struggling to interpret this combination: The Fool (main card), clarified firstly by the Moon and then by the Sun. This is a general reading To me this indicates a) pregnancy or b) a benign spontaneity (the sun lights the path, so this extreme romantic spontaneity does not lead to disasters).

  17. Sorry for the wait! I had to reflect on the second question a bit. My favorite thing is being able to use my intuition and skills in order to help others. It feels good to be able to make a difference! This question is tricky, so I'll do my best, but one of the most surprising things was that while I started with PDF and hotlines, I much preferred working through videos more.

    House of Formlab - Netherlands I think. Nice selection but not cheap. holisticshop.co.uk, again in the UK but delivers internationally, has more of a mass produced deck selection, nice selection tho.

    The Death Card---dum Dah Dum Dum!

    That's a good thought, Saturn! I thought of that this morning, too, that the High Priestess might have indicated her. Her husband passed about a year ago and they were both in their 90's. I didn't think she'd linger once he was gone and I was right. They were married for a good 60 years and more and they never had children of their own, even though they wanted some. They were just so close all those years. The day before she passed, her oxygen saturation was only fluctuating between 44 and 56 so I knew the end was close. She passed at 1:30am on Sunday morning. My aunt was always there for us kids, though, helping to teach us stuff about canning and sewing and child care, etc. and at times she even took in some of my siblings for periods of time because my step-mother was an alcoholic and not a stable parent. We always knew we could count on Aunt Illa to be the repository of information, you know? Especially for young people. My father had six kids----my mom and dad had me between them but then divorced and then each had 5 kids after me with other spouses. When my father and my Uncle Ken were young, they were going up a ladder to the hay loft and my father was carrying a pitchfork, going up the ladder after Uncle Ken. There was a slip by Uncle Ken and the pitchfork ended his chances of ever having children of his own, so the kids my father had were kind of shared between them. Uncle Ken always took a place as someone stable that everyone could look up to and strive to emulate. My father died at 44 years old and Uncle Ken was kind of my father for 50 years or so after that.

    What's The Postman Bringing?

    That's wonderful! It must take such a lot of work and thought to design your own deck. Has it arrived yet? I can't wait to see it Myself, I'm waiting for my grumpy postman to deliver a much anticipated delivery from Baba Studio - the Tarot of Prague limited edition set and the Alice Tarot + book. I had a lucky windfall so decided to treat myself to these 2 decks as I have wanted them for the longest time but just never seemed to have the spare cash before. Happy days, waiting for my delivery!

    Hello!

    We do have an AT revival section you might be interested. There are some threads brought over from AT that were great discussions over there and now embrace new discussions here!

    Oh I'm sorry! I had no idea. I learned something today.

    Hello!

    Thanks, @Saturn Celeste! I'm on the same boat. I posted sometimes but was more of a lurker, so while I recognize some of the frequent posters, I don't know if they'd even remember me.

    Thanks, everyone! I had no idea Alida Store still existed and didn't even remember its name. I didn't know the other two, I'll go look them up now! :) I love LittleRedTarot's selection! I've been eyeing the Anima Mundi on their shop for a while. Sadly, I'll have to order it later, hopefully any fees won't be too bad. Thank you, but Book Depository is owned by Amazon :( They bought it some years ago. But I've found wordery.com, which is similar (they also offer free worldwide shipping, I think) and it has a similar selection of books. I'm not really sure how it compares for Tarot, but some of the better-known decks are on there!

    Hello!

    Hello @dust! Great to have you here! I was an AT member but didn't know many people over there. I'm sure you'll reconnect with old friends and make some new ones!

    The Death Card---dum Dah Dum Dum!

    Oh dear Griz, I am sorry for the loss of your aunt. Perhaps she has attained the secrets the HP reveals to us and she has moved on in the higher plane of her soul's journey.
