What would Antoine Court de Gébelin think of the Happy Squirrel?

De Gébelin was a Protestant minister born in the 18th century. He authored the multi-volume tome Le Monde primitif, which insisted that the tarot deck contained secrets of the ancient Egyptians, whose priests had distilled their occult wisdom into the cards’ illustrations, imbuing them with great mystical power. Before that point, tarot was primarily a card game—meant for fun, not prophecy.

It was a bold and somewhat absurd assertion, given that de Gébelin could not read Egyptian hieroglyphics (no one could at the time, since they weren’t deciphered until the 19th century). Despite a total lack of historical evidence to back his claim…

Review: Astrology Reading Cards – By Alison Chester-Lambert

venus is ascending


As always I’m extremely excited whenever I see an astrologically-themed deck floating around the oracle/tarot universe. The Astrology Reading Cards deck is visually stunning (illustrations by Richard Crookes) and is more detailed an in-depth than the, Ask Astro Star Kards. Consisting of 36 cards divided into 3 sets (houses, planets and signs) each set of cards can be shuffled individually, or shuffled all together for a more impromptu reading experience. I preferred this method as it gave my reading a more organic feel. 

The cards come with a 95-page book that gives insight into each sign, house, and planet. The planetoid Chiron is included in this deck as well as the asteroid, Vesta, which was a pleasant surprise. It would have been a wonderful edition if other asteroid goddesses such as, Juno, Ceres, and Pallas were included; despite this omission the deck is a joy to work with and if…

The Beginning of the week and the Devil warns you that you should avoid temptation.  It’s time to to consider what you are doing and ensuring that you are only doing it for the right reasons.

The middle of the week and the 9 of Swords says that you are feeling overwhelmed.  Whatever is causing you to worry is probably your own mind making a mountain out of a molehill.  Put worry to one side for the time being and then consider it when your mind is in a rational place.
