The Gorgon’s Tarot

I do own this one. It’s AMAZING. It’s full of women and gorgeous/demonic little helpers and I just love it so much. Here’s my review!

    I just got the Ellis Tarot, and will blog with it next week. Can’t believe I hadn’t seen it before, and am totally loving it! It’s like a cross between the Tarot of the Silicon Dawn and the Deviant Moon. Very funky and colourful 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing these, Beth! Quite a few I wasn’t familiar with. I’ve been in the divination world for almost 25 years, having owned more than 200 decks, and I love seeing all these new decks crop up. I stopped (or tried to stop) purchasing decks a couple of years ago and started making my own oracle cards. But I have my eye on The Magpie Oracle — how ingenious!

      • Yep, I started using Printerstudio.com a few years ago to make some personal decks. I have a new deck idea almost every week so Printerstudio is an inexpensive way to see my deck visions come to life.

        I don’t draw well so I was using old book illustrations. I’ve also used clipart and some of my own iPhoneography images. People started asking about the decks so I’ve created a few that might be of interest to others too. My plan is to sell them through Printerstudio.

        (1) Over the Moon Oracle Cards – playing cards on one side/oracle cards on the other side. These go along with a playing card divination system I devised many years ago.

        (2) The Cinderella Deck – I used images from an old children’s book. Each image tells one part of the Cinderella story. This is proving to be a great manifestation tool – showing you where you are in terms of trying to manifest a goal. It’s also a great relationship reading deck.

        (3) The Simple Lenormand – Over the holidays, I made a Lenormand-esque deck using black and white line art images from openclipart.org.

        I also have an archetypes deck I hope to introduce soon.

        I started my new blog overthemoon-oraclecard.blogspot.com as a way to showcase the decks and introduce ways to use them. I am getting prototypes for the Lenormand and an update to The Cinderella Deck soon so hope to have some blog posts about them soon. Would love for everyone to check out my blog and give feedback.

        Thanks for letting me share this info!

  3. Gah! Damn you! That Oliver Hibert one is amazing! Too many lovely, juicy decks, not enough money/time to buy/play with them! I received the Dame Darcy Mermaid deck and the Tarot of the Magical Forest for Christmas, so I have plenty to be getting on with. Though the Ellis Tarot is on my wishlist with about a million others. I only have 5 decks at the moment and I have been VERY restrained when it comes to buying new ones. But I feel that 2015 is the year I go nuts for doughnuts on tarot decks. I am blown away by a lot of the independent decks coming out at the moment. I can’t even keep up.

    • Beth says:

      I think it’s good to be restrained about decks, to ensure that the ones you have really get enough attention and are used and really mean something to you. That said, collecting is fun…(just ask Chloe, above!)

      I love the Magical Forest… I did pass it on recently while decluttering, but I found it a wonderful deck to read with, the cute animals belie the depth of this deck in my opinion.

      Also I think you should get the Oliver Hibbert one when the full deck comes out… 🙂

  4. Danielle says:

    oh, jeez, the fountain one is so pretty! i’ve got the gorgon tarot & the housewives tarot (which i was super skeptical of when someone told me about it, but i spent some time on their website [with their little mini-reading game!] and kind of love its kitschy sarcasm) are both on my wishlist…

  5. constance says:

    The next deck on my list is the Prisma Visions Tarot; I’m loving the continual story that runs through each suit of the minor arcana. But, wow! The Japaridze Tarot! I hadn’t seen that one yet – I’m going to have to check it out.

  6. Sarah Dawn says:

    Geez Beth, way to enable my deck buying addiction. 🙂 I definitely want to get my hands on a copy of the The Tarot of the Zirkus Magi and also The Wheel of Fortune Tarot, but I still have to get around to buying The Wild Unknown Tarot and the Scared Rebels Oracle. So many decks, so little time (and money) indeed! 😛

  7. Oooooh, that Tarot of the Zirkus Magi is too fun!

    I have the The Wild Unknown deck on my wishlist! Also The Wildwood Tarot, The Druidcraft Tarot, and the Witches Tarot. 🙂 Is it weird to already want more decks even thought I JUST got my first one? Haha

    • Beth says:

      Nope, definitely not weird. You just joined a very big, very broke club Ashley 😀

      I have the Wildwood Tarot and absolutely love it… my one bugbear about it is that it has keywords on the cards, really throws my intuition off!

      The Witches Tarot is on my list too. It’s so cute!!

  8. JJ says:

    Aha, I wondered what The Gorgon’s Tarot was all about. I love round cards and black and white decks, but I also like Lovecraft and wrote a review (one of my usual rambles) of the Lo Scarabeo Lovecraftian Dark Grimoire Tarot.

    Hmmm…very humorous is Dolores–I often find that people who love horror fiction to be humorous.

    Holy cow, the deck is $52 CAD, way, way out of my budget. Dang, I shall admire from afar and look forward to seeing people use it. Thanks for the look and interview with Dolores–very nice to see creative people taking back tarot.

  9. Lor says:

    Wow, I LOVE that Wheel of Fortune deck! I’ve never worked with a deck that only has the Major Arcana, though. Any tips on how to use it, should I decide to buy it?

    • Beth says:

      Ooh Lor, I couldn’t tell you whether to buy this deck, and actually I’ve never used a majors-old deck before, though I do have my eye on that first deck up there…

      Does it call to you? If so…answer! xx

  10. Natalia says:

    oh no how to decide between the gorgon deck or the prisma visions! Any suggestions? I love the monochrome aspect of the moment, my favorite deck is the hermetic tarot, black and white. But the prisma visions seems so enticing and colorfully appealing.
