Sorry...autocorrect got the best of me. "Most positive way imaginable". :)

Yes, I mean fluffy bunny like "warm and snuggly, light and playful". While I have embraced my inner child on my couch in front of my Xbox, when it comes to tarot I have a tendency to be too...serious. :) This deck is truly unique, and I mean that in the most possible, one of a kind way imaginable. It took a lot of courage to think outside the RWS-clone box, and for that, you have my utmost respect. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective with us!

Tarot Decoded Elizabeth Hazel Weiser Books, 2004 $18.95 ISBN: 1-57863-302-8 One of the many factors that separate amateur tarot students from the more serious tarot reader/scholar is the use of dignities (the relationship of cards in a tarot spread) andcorrespondences (relationships of tarot cards to other disciplines). Elizabeth Hazel’s Tarot... Continue reading

I've been reading tarot for over 20 years, and I'll admit that I've had my share of interesting questions from friends, family members and clients. When I say interesting I really mean offbeat, oddball, or otherwise goofy. And that's understandable--a lot of people don't know what how the tarot works... Continue reading

No one who has worked with the Tarot would argue that it is filled with imagery that allows the reader to tell a story to a client. Each and every card has a whole range of different meanings, and these meanings can be related to all kinds of other disciplines,... Continue reading

To call a tarot deck different is definitely vague. The Crystal Visions Tarot by Jennifer Galass, published by U.S. Games Systems, is different from many tarot decks I have come across. The cards reflect Galasso’s fantasy style, so those who enjoy fantasy-themed decks will surely like this one. Most of... Continue reading

Tarot 101 is an imposing title for a book, since the implication is clear: This book is required reading for beginning tarot students. If you scan the table of contents, it certainly appears different from many other tarot books, because there’s not a listing for each card; it has entries... Continue reading

Actually, Janet, I don't know how it came up...but that's a very interesting interpretation. :)
