  1. It looks like Asherah Tarot will be removed from sale on September 14 and is planned to be back next year as a new third edition (with a couple of reworked cards among other things). In case anyone wants to get a current edition (1st Gamecrafter / 2nd MPC). Details on Sarah Wheatley's site.
  2. Yes, cardinal 2,3,4 fixed 5,6,7 and mutable 8,9,10.
  3. I have the first ed. book, but assuming Vitruvian is the same, there's text on the back of the pages! Perhaps you can color the art separately and then glue the images on top of the images in the book? (Or if you haven't seen it, there's the facebook group with a lot of posts about coloring and such, and you might see additional ideas there. )
  4. Thanks for the link! I like the bold coloring you get out of markers! I was coloring in my Book of Maps, so needed to not bleed through, but I like the sharpness of it and your notes and tests along the side. I especially love your second Priestess, which it looks like isn't your favorite, but I really associate that card with the blue you chose, and I love the contrast you got with the green and the pomegranate red. Also like how the scroll looks like old parchment.
  5. @Barleywine, it's good to see you here. So many of the threads I still refer to on AT have great input from you.
  6. Not really? Now that you mention it, the decks I read with don't relate a single season to each suit. But... I adapt for the RWS. Waite made some changes, like the Hermit. In the GD he corresponds to Virgo/end of summer, so the Thoth shows him in a field of wheat, but there's only snow in the RWS. Crowley sees a lot going on beneath the calm surface that we're going to reap as a harvest, while I think Waite emphasises cool stillness and clarity. I adapt to the art in front of me (which makes me -- like most of us, I bet -- picky about decks! ) Which makes me curious... Do you read with decks that have a different season match up than your preferred correspondences above?
  7. I'm pretty sure Lo Scarabeo decks hit most U.S. sites a bit later than their European publish dates. But Book Depository seems to be shipping it immediately from the UK, and Llewellen as well. (I really like the colors, so I was looking forward to this when the catalog came out, but it's Pam B as mentioned earlier, and unfortunately I'm with @Raggydoll on that, so in the end I went with the AGM. Speaking of the Lo Scarabeo catalog, I don't know if it's of interest, but since we're talking in print RWS, later this year they're publishing a black & gold RWS. )
  8. @LavenderMoon, @Anesiadora, I'm looking forward to it too. And thanks, Anesiadora! I didn't know it was on spotify as well. That's handy!
  9. No, not well, lol. I mean the GD has Aces and Princesses/Pages corresponding to "quadrants of space" (and to seasons) as below, and the closest I've come is playing around with those cards as cardinal directions from the perspective of where in the world I or the recipient of the reading was, but honestly, I didn't do much with it. I find the Princesses' seasons more meaningful than the areas. Or maybe I just haven't wrapped my head around the areas properly. Ace and Princess of Wands = Asia and the area of the sky in which Cancer, Leo and Virgo reside. (signs of Summer.) Ace and Princess of Cups = Pacific and the area of the sky in which Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius reside. (signs of Autumn.) Ace and Princess of Swords = Americas and the area of the sky in which Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces reside. (signs of Winter.) The Ace and Princess of Pentacles = Europe and Africa and the area of the sky in which Aries, Taurus and Gemini reside. (signs of Spring.)
  10. The image @McFaire posted from the GD is what I go by for a card's relationship to the seasons. It shows up in Crowley's writings about the Thoth. For example, he says of the 3 of Wands, "It refers to the Sun in Aries... The meaning is harmonious, for this is the beginning of Spring." Not that anyone has to agree with Crowley! I'm just saying I do. But that means for the minors, one suit doesn't represent an entire season to me... start of a new season Fire/Aries/Spring 2, 3 and 4 of Wands Water/Cancer/Summer 2, 3, and 4 of Cups Air/Libra/Autumn 2, 3, and 4 of Swords Earth/Capricorn/Winter 2, 3, and 4 of Pentacles mid season Fire/Leo/Summer 5, 6, and 7 of Wands Water/Scorpio/Autumn 5, 6, and 7 of Cups Air/Aquarius/Winter 5, 6, and 7 of Swords Earth/Taurus/Spring 5, 6, and 7 of Pentacles ending of a season Fire/Sagittarius/Autumn for the 8, 9, and 10 of Wands Water/Pisces/Winter for the 8, 9, and 10 of Cups Air/Gemini/Spring for the 8, 9, and 10 of Swords Earth/Virgo/Summer for the 8, 9, and 10 of Pentacles That's the same as the image above really. The seasons are heavily involved, and so is which part of the season we're talking about symbolically -- I'm thinking of things like the vast difference between the beginning of summer break as a kid when it seemed we had forever off, and then the end of summer when we were buying school supplies.
  11. Great addition. And thanks for taking that on, @LoveLightPeace!
  12. My favorite in print is the Tarot of A.E. Waite by AGM Urania, ISBN 978-3-03819-460-6. The one with crackle backs. I love the card stock, which is more flexible and matte than the Centennial imo. I'm not seeing them around as much anymore, but they're still a reasonable price in a few places. So clear and sharp, with gorgeous coloring, for my taste, though brighter than the Centennial that had been my favorite before that. I added a pic of cards, back, and box in this forum post. (ETA - there's also a pocket ed. and I think an oversized ed. Different ISBN.)
  13. Hi Not Dynamo. It's a welcoming place, and I hope you enjoy it.
  14. I'm thinking about the 22 weeks in mid to late July. (I have to admit, some of what she said about vipassana isn't what I practice, but really I could learn from her approach in the way that works for me. Given other things she's said, I'm sure she'd encourage that.) Also I have to say that it was kind of her to email these out to us and to make one specifically for the first ed. at no charge. She's generous with content.
