What's The Postman Bringing?

Recommended Posts

Kath

I'm a little excited.  It's been years since I purchased a new deck or book.  This will be my first Lenormad deck, and I'm looking forward to learning about the cards.

I’ve got the Golden Girls tarot on its way! It looks so awesome and I can’t wait to play with it 🤩

I didn't know this existed and now it is sitting in my cart!

 

I'm also waiting for the Dream Enchantress Tarot and Joie De Vivre Tarot.

Oh MAN the Adventurer's Tarot folks got their hard copy proof and shared a picture:

I *cannot* wait for mine.

Nice looking deck...but Death and XXIX (? It looks like a Swords card...) look like paintings, while XXVI has more of a pen and ink look.
Not sure what's going on with the numbering or the different mediums?

So the idea behind it is it's a D&D 5th Edition Tarot Deck. By which I mean, they used Tarot structure to make a deck for playing D&D 5th Edtion.

 

As a result, the majors are various classes and related, the suits are the various types of NPCs you encounter (The Undead, The Beasts, etc) It's more Oracle than Tarot, truth be told. sort of like the Cosma Visions Oracle, despite being built from Tarot structure, doesn't follow it closely enought that the artist (James Eads) felt comfortable calling it a Tarot.

I'm patiently waiting for a copy of the Pagan Cats tarot, after seeing so many people (even non-cat lovers) raging about it. It's supposedly a very witty and chatty deck!

 

Also, an extra deck of the Fountain Tarot is on her way.

It is - it's wonderful. And TOTALLY on point. Be sure and look carefully at 4 and 10 swords together when you get it !

 

To lower the tone - I just received - a new switch for the cement mixer :rofl: 

 

I am actually also expecting some dietary supplements - but the only DECK (not counting Kickstarters which are kind of random) is a preorder - Tarot del Toro.

Things that got delivered: An original edition of Dame Darcy's Mermaid Tarot which I have wanted for AGES and missed several of them on eBay. It's amazing - the cardstock is lovely and the colours are beautiful.

 

Talking of beautiful - Yesterday the postie knocked my door with the Large Version of The Dark Mansion from Taroteca and it's amazing! I bought the standard version with the dark backs a couple of weeks ago and loved it so much I had to have the bigger version before they vanished.

 

These and Dame Darcy are both going to get a LOT of use! ❤️

Ahhhhhh I was literally just admiring both of those decks on my shelf, @Bexter279 when I saw this! I really adore the Dame Darcy tarot, it's a beautiful vibrant deck. I'm doing a thing on-camera tomorrow where they asked me to curate my bookshelf to display stuff that shows off my geeky persona, and I'm tossing a few tarot decks into the mix. I'm going with the Cosmos tarot, the Golden Thread, the Jugendstil (the Japanese art-deco deck) and the Dame Darcy, because they're all colorful and should stand out, and because I feel like they're all a different flavor of niche geek. Was strongly considering tossing the Dark Mansion in there too, but decided the colors might not be bright enough.

@bookshop To me the colours of the Dark Mansion are quite bright and rich  - I'm totally obsessed with it. ❤️ I can see it being my main deck to be honest, especially now I have the big version. 🙂

Having been very restrained and not bought any new cards for two years i'm awaiting delivery of:-

 

  • Crow Tarot (sound weird and woo woo but i'm pretty convinced my late son visits me as a Raven)
  • Wildwood Tarot (what can I say, I love forests and woodlands)
  • The Stretch Tarot (as a mixed media artist and photographer this deck spoke to me)

All of the above have been on my list for a while.

 

I've also ordered Benebell Wen's book The Holistic Tarot.

Ooooo.... @WildPlace, that is some loot! I'll be interested on your thoughts on the book once you have had a chance to read through it.

I have just placed an order for the Momento Mori Oracle/Lenormand deck by Claire Goodchild. 
 

I have been trying to decide between two decks that are on the more expensive end for the past week or so, one tarot one Lenormand. Even though I don't think I'll have to the time to devote to learning Lenormand for a few months at least - I figured I could still enjoy the images and get familiar with them before I start. It will take a little time to ship from Canada anyway. That's my tarot budget blown for the new few months at least! Can't wait till it arrives.

Thank you Mr Postman 

 

My first Lenormand deck, and a new tarot deck.

I seem to be on somewhat of a roll at the moment and have ordered the Morgan Greer Tarot.

 

@Grace yes i'll let you know what I think of the Holistic Tarot book - it arrived yesterday and i've read the first couple of chapters so far - I also downloaded the study guide from Benebell's website, she has so much free stuff on there!

Excellent! I've read Benebell's free downloads a while back - they are a great resource, especially when I was first learning.
