  1. There’s probably magic involved
  2. How exciting!!! Please share pics when you get it. I never did order it, I couldn't justify it when ive had access to the app for so long and hardly read it. But their guidebooks are really really good.
  3. Now hurry and spend those two euros on something nice - you’ve earned it!!
  4. I read them intuitively and so I don’t use any set keywords, but since the images still are based on tarot traditions then it’s fair to expect that a certain amount of tarot-derived interpretations can emerge. I recommend that you at least try to completely skip the tarot associations and just look at the picture. It’s very freeing and I have found it to be very accurate too. (Just like they do it in the ISG circles here on the forum!). And when you’ve crossed that threshold you’ll soon discover that you can read with any cards, or any pictures... or with any objects. It’s an exciting journey
  5. That’s great! We basically never have crystals in our charity shops. I wish we did!!
  6. I heard this rumor a couple of times on Facebook, that Ellen was looking into having the dark goddess tarot mass produced and to also reprint her Tarot of the Crone. I wasn’t sure what to believe but today I saw this: So it certainly isn’t a done deal but still potentially hopeful news. If anyone knows more then please share!
  7. I’m glad you chimed in! And I agree that crystals or stones aren’t any more special than soil or grass or wind - those all have spirit to me. But I do feel that the communication that is possible with these different entities will differ based on their very nature. So rocks are in my opinion good because they typically don’t move around like air does and they don’t constantly get mowed like grass does. So in that sense I find them great to work with. I also find that they are more of ‘record keepers’ than for example flowers. But soil and trees are great record keepers too. Again, these are just my experiences and current understandings, I don’t intend to present them as universal truths
  8. I am really glad you brought this up. It’s one of the reasons why most of my collection is made up by stones found in nature (that, and financial reasons). Lots of them were not found by me, they were picked by family members several decades ago (yes, I inherited rocks - and I also inherited some copal/amber and fossils that my dad and granddad once picked). To me, those pieces are just as special and powerful as store bought crystals. I still use crystals though, but I try to limit my consumption and be mindful of where I source them. I have used a lot of crystal beads for jewelry in the past but I am beginning to experiment with also using seed-beads, wooden beads and other alternatives alongside the crystals. And I like the contrasts you get with different materials
  9. I know! I giggled too It probably helps that I wasn’t raised religiously so I don’t actually believe in the devil as such Yes. It’s also when we deceive ourselves and allow others to run the show so we can choose to feel like victims... Absolutely. If the devil represents another individual then it’s usually not great news. It might not always be ‘evil’ or explicitly bad intent, but the end result would most likely still be very destructive or unhealthy.
  10. This. People seem to constantly forget why decks go out of print. It’s not that the publishers want to limit how many fabulous creations that we can get hold of - it’s generally because they didn’t sell good enough to justify further production. People take stuff for granted and only begin to covet them when they are no longer available for purchase. (I do understand that sometimes we simply miss a deck when it’s in production and only discover it later, but I still don’t get the hysteria because there are simply SO many great decks being created all the time now. So hardly no need to despair if you couldn’t get one of them).
  11. I love the cryptic little guy! It’s like he’s saying: “I’m so misunderstood! ... but this fabric is really nice”
  12. Weird! Especially considering when he has a button that switches it to English!! I have been able to buy my yves decks to basically the same price as he has them, via my local dealers. It’s thanks to Stuart Kaplan who decided that he would buy and help distribute some via us games. Not everyone understood that it was the exact same decks just distributed by another company so more people would have access to it. He bought them in bulk and got a good deal so he wouldn’t have to charge much higher prices. Stuart apparently admires the work Yves do, and so do I!
  13. Just checked my box. It says 2015 and it’s numbered. I bought it last year from adlibris. I also have the claude burdel and the Pierre madenie - numbered. Bought them from those two sites. But the madenie is not available anymore. Mine was the first edition that they had a small batch of. Maybe they are selling newer editions now thar aren’t limited I will say that I don’t particularly care. I prefer the first printing of madenie because it has the ghost lines but the other ones I believe are the same. Did you check Yves site to see what he writes in the different editions? He always lists any changes and how many decks that were printed (if limited)
  14. I have a copy. They are still in stock for original price here in Sweden (much the same as what you paid), but I’m sure the shipping isn’t much cheaper. https://www.tarotshop.se/tarot-franois-heri-1718 https://www.adlibris.com/se/bok/tarot-francois-heri-1718-9781572818705
  15. Oh yes, our ISG party! Don’t fret and don’t sweat. Just get in the groove
  16. Sorry, I know you were! But ok, I’ll be good and share something very special. She comes from the piece of land where I grew up. On that property some of my relatives performed folk magic and would heal wounds etc. It is very sacred and special land to me. And if anyone for a second thinks she does not have stories to tell (and actually tells them to those who will listen!), well - then please keep that you yourselves!
  17. I showed this thread to some of my stone friends. Our stupidity made them speechless.....
  18. Well it’s definitely part of the commonly accepted understandings of that card . The Devil is, for many, the master puppeteer. “The Devil made me do it!” and all that So alongside ‘bondage’, ‘addictions’, ‘toxic relationships’ etc, then ‘manipulation’ is definitely an accepted and very common interpretation. But personal understandings of cards will of course vary. It just felt silly that we forgot about it since it’s such a frequent theme. Just a few examples from google (This one isn’t a tarot card but it shows that this is a fairly universal idea.)
  19. Welcome! This topic sits in the wrong area and you do not have the required minimum of 5 posts for me to move it. When you have five post, let us Staff members know (you can send a PM) and then we will move and unlock your thread. We are then going to ask you to elaborate on your own interpretations before anyone can help you. Plus we will also require that you provide extensive feedback to everyone who helps you out
  20. Living crystals!! You managed to get us all back on topic!!!
