  1. I was really thriving on the bookmarks. Is there a way to bookmark threads on this new version? Thanks!
  2. Thanks gregory[/member] ! I will look into that. I saw the Animals Divine on amazon, but also saw reviews from some people saying they just got the book and not the box set as is said in the description. :/ I ended up finding out the World Spirit Tarot has a second edition out and bought it, even though it was twice my desired budget. *sigh* I couldn't resist a deck where I love every single card in it! It will serve me well and for a long time. I really look forward to using it in conjunction with the Shamanic Healing Oracle because both decks have fairly tribal art with vibrant colors and black backgrounds. ;D Phew! That was quite a process, haha! Thanks for everyone's replies and input! I am sure the time will come where I go looking for another deck; the information has been helpful. Cheers!
  3. I have been studying herbalism for years as a hobby and have looked at a lot of herbal oracle decks, but none really completely compelled me. It was actually yesterday I spotted the upcoming Magickal Herb Oracle and I think I am in love!
  4. I have been all over the place with the next deck picking. I thought I decided on the Green Witch Tarot, but then got drawn to the Wildwood Tarot yet again and then realized it was more of it's own system and got redirected to Tarot Mucha because I don't have an RSW type deck and was kind of still desiring to have at least something close to the original symbolism. The Star Tarot is still near the top of the list as well. I am thinking I will settle with Tarot Mucha for now, it is probably more useful earlier on than later. Ostara has lost some appeal for me because of some of the more caroony imagery, but by no means would I turn it down if someone handed me a copy! I love art and all the beautiful decks, but I am trying to prioritize for now. ;D Animals Divine would be my first option at this point - it is so intuitive to me and beautiful, but it looks like it's out of print and hopefully, I can find someone to trade for it some day. I also discovered the Alchemical Tarot and would really LOVE to work with that deck, but it's over $65 if you include the price of the deck plus the book (and then shipping on top of that). Also, I read reviews of the book having bad grammatic errors, so I contacted the author, Robert M. Place, and he is having it edited with another printing coming out in four months! So I will go ahead and add that to my wishlist for later this year! I am so excited to learn more about alchemical correspondences, for some reason, I am very drawn to them. I have no idea, who knows, maybe tomorrow I'll change my mind entirely and decided to get another oracle deck! J/K :))
  5. When you bend down to pick something up and emit a groan when coming back up!
  6. Thanks for all your replies! I ended up looking closer at the Ostara Tarot and decided it was not the right choice for me right now. It is definitely something I would get for the sake of art collection, but I can relate to the disjointed aspect when looking at the cards. Some of the cards I just love, but there are some which I just don't connect with all that well. Beautiful art, by all means, but for what I am seeking right now, it's not the right choice for me. The Star Tarot - still a contender, but the price point being a bit higher than the others plays a part and the fact that the card stock is lacking and the borders are large, would mean it would be a trimming and edging project. I am not sure I am up for that at this moment. However, what attracted me to the deck in the first place, was the incredible symbolic colorful imagery and the book which supports the deck, seems worthwhile in and of itself. I am still considering it because I can always use it until the point I am ready to do a trim and would probably learn a great deal from the book! The Green Witch Tarot - I love everything about it, including the symbolism (I have deep pagan roots, so it's very much my style). The only thing that draws me away from the deck is the design on the back of the cards. I know it seems like a small thing, but what you end up looking at a great deal of the time while shuffling is the backs. It's the ONLY thing that detracts me from buying it right now. Maybe I am just silly. Perhaps I don't need another deck at all, but I would really like another one. My first deck which was of my choosing was the Shadowscapes Tarot and anything else is hard for me to compare because it's the perfect deck for me! I have the Enchanted Tarot - this is the deck I have owned for over 15 years, but it was a gift and I never chose it, so choosing a deck (being an artist myself) is a really wonderful process. It's like choosing a familiar, a companion, if you will. I could just forgo choosing any of these and wait for the decks that are to be released (potentially years from now) on my wish list, but I am not that patient and would prefer to start a collection of decks/art. I have been an artist for many years and studied art in college. It is strange how life goes, because my relationship with art went as-cue for a while and then when I started reading for others, it re-enlivened my passion for art because I could see, once again, how it connects all of us as a language cross borders, cultures, and creeds. So I am down to Green Witch Tarot vs. Star Tarot (leaning toward Green Witch, but the book with the Star Tarot, oh man!). I will probably end up with both eventually, lol. Thanks again!
  7. Greetings and welcome! I am also an Aeclectic transplant, lol. :heartz:
  8. I know, I know, tarot deck choices are just for you and you alone, but seriously, there is so much wonderful art, it is so hard to choose! I am wondering if any of you have had experience with these deck as to how they read, comparison to the RWS meanings, and your general reviews. These are the choices I am currently looking at: The Star Tarot (2017) Ostara Tarot (2017) Green Witch Tarot (2003) Are there any other decks that you like better which you might suggest? I am currently using the Shadowscapes Tarot and loving it! Thanks!
  9. There are some really amazing decks out there, I am discovering! I am already in love with the Oriens Tarot Deck (in progress) Bonestone and Earthflesh is absolutely divine! (but currently out of stock?) Blood Moon Tarot (in progress) Prisma Visions Tarot (new) The Brady Tarot Deck (new) Children of Litha tarot (May, 2019) Sylvia Ritter's Tarot (in progress) Forest of Enchantment Tarot (October, 2019) Animal Tarot by Vivian Hansen (in progress) These are older decks, but new to me. I am thinking of choosing one of these for my next deck, but can't decide for the life of me! :bugeyed: The Star Tarot (2017) Ostara Tarot (2017) Animism Tarot (2013) Green Witch Tarot (2015)
  10. Talking about anger always reminds me of this quote: "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." ~Nelson Mandela Anger is an umbrella emotion. It's like the red light on the dashboard. It's a signal of another feeling, of a need that isn't being met. It's useful only as this signal. Indulging in anger longer than for a brief moment to realize that it's a signal will hurt you more than whatever or whoever you are angry at. There is something deeper. It's not always easy to examine, but if you go beneath the anger, there is something there that needs to be addressed. Confusion can create and elevate anger. There is something to be discovered. Perhaps about the situation, but more likely, about yourself. I used to have quite a temper, but I really didn't like it. It takes some time, but the more you practice, the more it become easier to quell the anger, return to love and then act, in whatever way you can. Some things are out of our control and those are certainly a waste of time to worry about, or be angry at. Redirect - when you feel that boiling feeling, redirect your thoughts. Take a deep breath, count to ten, practice sensory awareness (what can you see, what can you feel, what can you smell, what can you hear, etc.) to bring you back to the present moment and refocus. Meditation helps in the long term, but any kind of practice that helps redirect your emotional state at the time you are angry will help.
  11. That was your 444th post Esk[/member] ! I was wondering, what books do you not use and what are your go to books?

    gregory[/member] Good find! I was trying to find what SCAD's was from pinterest, but failed to find the source. Was mostly aiming to find the publishing, but I guess the reason I failed was because there is none. Oh man, I am so in love with this art, wish I could get the decks, but they aren't actualized....yet! Hope these artist thrive. These images are so beautiful! Thanks.
