I met Kathryn Samuelson at an event last fall… a psychic fair where we were both reading.

First impressions of the Starlight Dragon Tarot

When I saw the Starlight Dragon Tarot, I realized that the dragons are different from anything else in my collection. I think the only dragon artwork I have may be one or two cards in the Shadowscapes tarot and then dragon card in The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Oracle.

Getting to know the Moon Deck

My first impressions: This is a gentle deck, soft and reassuring as your grandmother’s hand on your feverish five-year old forehead.

Arcana of Astrology Unboxing

Here’s a video of my initial thoughts on Black and the Moon’s Arcana of Astrology deck. If you’re not into videos, let me sum it up for you: I really dig this deck. There are 26 cards. They’re minimalist, but rich. Overall verdict: it rocks.

The Arcana of Astrology is by Claire Goodchild, creator of the […]
