I am awaiting:

Quester
Kazanlar

Gerbear! You're the only other person I've heard of who has (or is getting) the Tarokado! Ooh...so sad...now I will not be the only one who has it on the "Come on, Come on," deck list thread! :( But I'm happy that someone else will be enjoying the deck.

Oops...I forgot about the ones I have on Pre-Order from Tarot Garden: Tarot of the New Vision - Miniature Size, The Egyptian Tarot - Miniature Size, and The Buddha Tarot by Robert M. Place. And the Czech decks that I'm trading Baba-Prague the PoMo Tarot for. How silly of me to forget! :rolleyes: (By the way, that's a duplicate PoMo that I have...I'd never trade my one and only!)

Peace,

Melvis

I§m waiting for the Light and Shadow right now. I have become much more interested in Brian Williams§ decks than I expected. The PoMo I just got in trade is a joy. So, it§s the Light and Shadow next.

By the way, the fact that it is made from woodblocks also interests me.

oh = and please excuse weird punctuation. My machine does this from time to time. The keyboard just goes mad.

WolfSpirit
12-10-2003, 06:40
I am waiting for the Haindl.
Normally I plan my aquisitons, but this was a trade on a whim - and I am so curious. The more I look at the pictures on line, the more I think I will like it, but it is very different from my other decks.

Requiella
13-10-2003, 12:16
I'm just getting ready to order:

Gothic (Vargo)
Fantastical

I've been busy with a move this weekend, so everything's been put on hold (meant to order them last week!)

Emily
15-10-2003, 10:12
I am also now waiting for the Morgan Greer deck and book set - Didn't really want the book but I've had a problem finding the deck on its own so I ordered the set. This deck has been on my wishlist for a while :)

I don't know if this counts. I'm not waiting for it in the mail but I'm waiting for the release of Kate Black's Golden Tarot. I've got it on pre-order at Tarot Garden. But that's it for now. I may add a deck to that order but I'm trying to be good. I've got more decks than I am able to keep up with already!

Couldn't decide on a majors only but I couldn't shake that itch. You know the one.... so I ordered the Roots of Asia deck. Hasn't been talked about too much lately but it is in print, the scans look amazing and I was able to get it from Amazon.com for $14 US so I couldn't pass it up.

I'm waiting for a New Vision from catlin too! I'm getting a bit anxious about it, 'cos it seems to have been in transit for a long time. I can't p-m catlin as her mail-box is always full and she won't answer my e-mails, so I'm not sure if she even received the Gita deck from me. So, if you read this, catlin, talk to me, please!

I did get a nice deck in the mail this week - the PoMo. Love it to bits!

I just allow the Tarot compulsion 1 time per year and this year

was the time for: 1) Mansions of the Moon

2) Portal

3) Tarot of Prague

4) Gendrom

I've just spent all my Christmas money in them.

By the way I'm second guessing the Gendron now, does anybody
have it( opinions please), I choose it against the Spiral I guess
I have to wait another year to see if it was a good choice for me.

I ordered the Radiant RWS and Joan Bunning's book Tarot for Beginners today! :)

I hope they're good! First I was thinking about getting the Tarot for Your Self-book but since the delivery would have taken longer than usual (according to the Bookplus net shop) I decided to get the Bunning book. It was hard to decide after reading all the recommendations from here!

I hope the Radiant RWS won't be too large and I will like the colors etc. I'm very picky when it comes to decks and usually like more colourful decks like the Thoth or Kat Black's Golden Tarot.

So, now I'll have to wait for two weeks!!

I find myself in the unusual position of awaiting nothing, even wanting nothing, at least nothing that can be got right now. The only decks on my wish list are the Gilded (which is currently out of my price range) and the Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot (which is not yet finished). It's strangely disorienting, this sensation. I feel rather uneasy.

Ciro just emailed me and said my Gilded is on it's way....
I'm so excited.

I'm also waiting for the Golden Tarot (just like everybody else)

I am looking at my list and I have been very busy preordering things that aren't even in print yet.

Three Oracle decks on order:

The only deck that I'm waiting for, and have been for two months, is Arnell Ando's Hero's Journey Tarot. I can't wait!! I love her Transformational Tarot, and this deck precedes that one and should be very interesting!

And I just got an email from Arnell two days ago saying that she has completed her touching up of the original images with Photoshop (or some such program), and she'll be making my deck this week.

Weeeeee! :D The deck is costly, but I've paid more. I think this one will definitely be worth it! You can see her site at www.arnellart.com


Karen


P.S. In my excitement over this deck, I totally forgot that I'm also waiting for Kat's Golden Tarot! :| I guess I've been waiting so long for that one, that it's just become a part of life!

Plus, I am very much looking forward to all of Lo Scarabeo's releases this year! I've preordered the Pagan Tarot and Tarot of the Druids from Tarot Garden to start.....

Ok, I lied. Hero's Journey is not the only deck I'm waiting for. :P But it's obviously the one I'm most excited about! :)

The only deck that I'm waiting for, and have been for two months, is Arnell Ando's Hero's Journey Tarot. I can't wait!! I love her Transformational Tarot, and this deck precedes that one and should be very interesting!

And I just got an email from Arnell two days ago saying that she has completed her touching up of the original images with Photoshop (or some such program), and she'll be making my deck this week.

Weeeeee! :D The deck is costly, but I've paid more. I think this one will definitely be worth it! You can see her site at www.arnellart.com

Thanks Karen/EarthAngel for the link.....

I had forgotten how much I loved Ando's work, especially the Transformational Tarot (used to be on my wishlist until I finally gave up!) I have always loved her little miniature shops and collaged mirrors....very unique and lovely work!

I was surprised and encouraged to read on her website that she is in talks to get the Transformational Tarot published in 2004....it sounds like she is awaiting a contract from US Games??? I don't know any more than that, but like I said, it was very encouraging!!!! As much as I would love to get the "Hero's Journey" set (GORGEOUS boxes!!!), it is just way out of my price range.....but I am sure you will enjoy it and treasure it Karen....let us know when you do get it!

Luna,

Just so you know, I emailed US Games a couple of months ago asking about the status of the Transformational Tarot based on Arnell's website info, and the email I received back from Stuart Kaplan's assistant said that it is slated to be published in 2004/2005. (Of course, after this fiasco with the Golden Tarot, you can allow maybe an additional 6 months on top of that! :P)

Now, that's all that was said. So, I would assume that since Arnell has not been contacted by US Games as of yesterday, that we probably won't see this deck in 2004. Probably in 2005, but who knows when.

But the good news is that they're definitely interested in publishing this deck, so eventually it will be available to the general public again. YAY!!

And it is a wonderful deck!

Luna, don't stop trying to find it. Just a few months ago, I saw the Transformational on eBay for $100, but before I put a bid on it I checked Amazon and Amazon Marketplace, just in case. And am I glad I did!! I was in the right place in the right time, because a reseller had listed this deck for sale, AND AT THE RETAIL PRICE! I ordered it, even though I assumed that it might just be the companion book, but it wasn't! It was the original shrinkwrapped deck and book set! I was floored!! And I count myself extremely fortunate.

So you just never know...... ;)

THANKS Karen, for giving me a little more encouragement!!!
I never even considered checking Amazon for this deck...it just goes to show that you never know where or when you might find the "deal of a lifetime"!

I just emailed Arnell about the status of the US Games publication (after reading your last post, I guess I shouldn't have done it quite so soon...oh well, at least she'll know she's got another rabid fan...hehe :laugh:)

Yes, I agree that US Games tends to be a "little" off with their estimated publication dates.....but the good news is that it is coming, eventually....looking forward to getting my Golden in a couple of weeks...hopefully!!!!

PS: If I hear anything new from Arnell, I will be sure to post it here for anyone who is interested...

Thanks again!
:D Luna

Here is an update from Arnell Ando on the status of publication of the Transformational Tarot:

Well....US Games claims they will publish Transformational Tarot sometime this
year (although I have yet to receive a contract from them). My dear friend
Diane Wilkes encouraged a letter writing campaign regarding this issue back in
January and US Games responded to many folks who inquired that it would be
published so I remain somewhat optimistic...I think eventually they will focus in on it once they get caught up with their other commitments. At least I hope so. I will offer to help scan and retouch closer to summer if I have not heard from them as until then I am over committed with projects myself.

That is all for now...as EarthAngel mentioned, it is looking more like a mid-to-late 2005 release date at this point. But the GOOD news is that it sounds like this is really going to happen....eventually!!! :eek: Arnell's email was very nice, BTW...she sounds like a very down-to-earth and caring person, and she is looking forward to having this deck published so that more of us can get it at a reasonable price...I am now on her mailing list, so will continue posting on AT whenever there is news of the publication :)

That would be the Encyclopedia of Tarot, volumes I, II, and III by Stuart Kaplan. Published by U.S. Games. There are hundreds of
decks featured and pictures of thousands of cards. Included is a history of tarot and much more.

I'm waiting on the round Dragon Tarot by Lynn Secrist.

Yes, I was one of the people who wrote and got a slightly "short" email back from US Games - maybe they felt a bit bombarded! But I would love to see this deck published. I do have a copy (thanks to a trade here :-) ) but I have to be honest and say that the only thing I don't like about small run self-published decks is that they all tend to use thickish shiny machine lamination - which this deck has (I know there is no solution to this, it's really the only way that anyone can laminate a small-run deck, so I'm not complaining at all). I would like a copy with a more standard lamination, just so that I could use it more often.

Well, let's hope. I was a bit appalled to hear that Arnell has no contract as yet :-(

I do think this would be a great deck to see in more general circulation.

There have been two listings on ebay recently, one from Frank Jensen, and the other from friends of the artist. It's not in any database, and I've seen only the review in Manteia, which was quoted in the listing. Tarot Garden won one, so it should be in their database soon. Perhaps Jeannette could send you a scan. It's a round deck, in shades of wheat, with subtle pastel colors for each of the suits. Dragons, of course, are dominant, and they have nice emotive expressions on their faces. The artist has a degenerative eye disease and will not be making any more decks. I managed to get the last one she made.

Ancient Tarot of Piedmont-Liguria. You can see some scans over at www.tarotgarden.com

I won it quite cheaply on e-bay. A sniper tried to snipe me in the last ten seconds, but his aim was bad.

Moonbow* is sending it to me because the shipper only shipped to the UK.

I think it's going to be a very nice addition to my small collection of Marseille kind of decks.

1. A 100 card deck and book set that was $20 off the usual $50 set by Foolscap Press...the Gotthold and Gotthold Transformation.

2. Since it's almost April, the D'Estensi Tarot due in April 2004. I may also get the
Dotti "Mary Stuart" deck, both from Alidastore.com

3. I actually won an out of print vintage deck off of E-Bay, a 1973 RWS clone with booklet and box...it is an odd one called the Prophesy Tarot. It was $30.00, all that I would put down.

The others aren't due soon..

I found a secondhand, but hardly used, set in a bookshop here, but traded them to someone in AT as I just knew I'd never use them (they are nice cards, but I only use a very few Oracle decks). However, I think they are available in Germany still, and I guess amazon.de would be a good place to look. I know that Mystic Eye had them, but they were a lot more expensive there - even with postage I think amazon.de might be the least expensive place to track them down. Best of luck!

I'm STILL waiting for my Golden tarot... *sigh*

After finishing an animation project that has been stressing me out lately i arrived home and found a big cardboard envelope in my mailbox... Well, ofcourse I assumed it was my Golden finally... It wasn't!! Inside was only a book about scottish queens I ordered with it and a bonus book I had chosen... No Golden... :(

They have now updated the product page in that store but it claims the deck will be published on 31st of this month... Funny, because another book store here says it's available and is delivered in two weeks!! I'm too tired to order it from another place, I guess I'll call the customer service tomorrow to find out if my order is still holding ( I really hope it is coming since they didn't e-mail me about a delay!). I got home about 4:30 p.m. and ofcourse the customer service call line closes at 4 p.m.... AAARRGGHH!!!!!

That is terrible, Aure!

You really should contact the seller....this just doesn't make any sense! Unless maybe they shipped the Golden separately for some reason...hopefully it will come today! :D (I hope, I hope)

Not to add salt to your wounds, but.....

I got my Golden today!!!!!!

It is everything I had hoped for and more...the gilt-edging is just AMAZING!!!! It makes the cards look that much more lovely and luxurious....can't wait to try them out (although I am a little worried about the gold wearing off...). But I bought them as a reading deck, so I intend to have fun with them! ;)

GOOD LUCK, Aure....hope you get yours very soon...you are going to love them!!!

ya, I know, but i got lucky last week on an order and even though they said it would take several days it only took two... so, I was hoping that would happen again this time... no suck luck I guess!

MUCH MORE THAN I NEED! But that's ok....LOL I'm definitely having fun.....I miss being a student every few years....Didn't you say you are back in school, TA?

I was at Borders last night itching to buy something, almost got Mary Greer's Tarot Reversals book, but instead decided to go home and order online. Well, I needed a few bucks to make the $25 total for free shipping, so I decided to get a mini-deck to carry around with me. Went with the LoS Mini Universal. Hope I'll like it!

I am hoping to get mine soon....toward the end of the month! :D

Seriously....I am very excited for you....I know you will love them both...I have the Animal Lords deck and it is absolutely PERFECT!!! Reminds me almost of the feeling I get with the Hanson-Roberts....enchanting and sweet when you first look at it...but beyond the exterior this is a powerful deck that has so much to to tell you. Not a fluffy deck by any means...

I'm looking forward to both decks to give me a different slant on some of these cards I think I know so well. My goal is to avoid the LWB and use my intuition only, maybe help break me of a lil of my tendency to automatically gravitate towards traditional meanings for the cards. OOOOOH I can't wait.... maybe my Animal Lords deck will come today?

lunakasha
04-04-2004, 05:37
You should have no problem reading with the Animal Lords, Jypsie....these cards are very intuitive...not to mention the fact that the LWB doesn't give you much info anyway! Although it does tell you the names of the animals featured on each card, which is nice.....hope they arrive soon!

I just got my Fairy Tarot in the mail today. I don't know how I'll get along with the deck as a whole, but I've already found the best Heirophant ever drawn. He has a cat! That's what I've been missing all these years. No man can be wise who doesn't own (isn't owned by) a cat!

My cat Brigid agrees with me. She just climbed on my desk to check the deck out herself. :laugh:

The very wonderful faunabay and I arranged a sale of the Glastonbury Tarot in early February. Mailing form the U.S. to Ireland takes about five weeks. In the middle of this five-week period, a postal strike broke out.

However, strike action ended on Sunday and my new, beautiful Glastonbury arrived yesterday. The only word is - Yay!

And I love this deck - the artwork is great and what I;ve read of the book is pretty fab - the artist describes her creative process and includes the information that six of the women who modelled for her became pregnant before the deck was completed.

I really love this deck - uber-thanks to Faunabay!

It arrived this morning but I have yet to spend much time with it. I'm also waiting for Ziegler's "Mirror of the Soul" from Amazon to help illuminate the deck.

And I was just watching a new boxed Osho Zen on Ebay UK that was about to finish. I placed a bid of ten pounds about four minutes before the end of the auction. To my surprise I won that too :)

Hi Mimers,

If you try Blackwells in the UK, it can be ordered for around $30. It might be best to wait for it to appear on ebay. I got one a few weeks ago for $20. That's the only place I've found that can get it.

Well, I'm waiting and waiting and waiting for an order that should have been here a long time ago. I can only advise that no one ever order from RC Hobbies and Games http://www.hobbiesandgames.com/index.html
I ordered all the way back on April 13, this is May 6, still no package despite promises that it went to the shipper and they would send tracking info - that was last week and I haven't heard a thing since then. I had to send several emails just to get that much from them. I could drive to their store in a couple of hours so I really don't think it should take that long for them to ship two tarot decks to me.
Just goes to show that a deal isn't always a deal - don't be lured in by the cheap prices on their decks :(

I've ordered the Robin Wood deck three times from Proxis (Good prices;)). The first two times there seemed to be a problem with the payment (they weren't able to confirm the payment) so the orders were cancelled and I had to order again in order to get the deck. Now in this third order I changed the payment card and there is no deck + book in store. It's been about 4 months since the first order and one and half since the third order.
I really want this deck.:) Is this delay normal/usual?

Some of these decks have been on my on/off list for quite a while .

I held off buying new decks because of problems with delivery. That is before I found an online store that delivers packages via registered mail; at the same time I came across a bit of money ( though not the :T7S style ) as there is no reason to hold onto these :T4P any much longer. })

Hi Island Dreamer,

I am very curious, would you like to share what you didn't like about the ToP? I think there is a thread in this section about the deck, would you mind posting your opinion there?

Karen Mahoney, who is on AT break for the moment, has always reacted very positively and openly to criticism. From the very little I know about you, I am sure you can do a very interesting artistic review of the deck, in a constructive and positive way. (Karen had to suffer the very rude attacks from an aggressive forum member once, but I think he is no longer with us, and anyway Karen got back up forces to defend baba studio's deck!!!).

Warm regards,

Kissa

Hi Kissa,

I'll have to give this some serious thought before I post any firm opinions.

I just expected to go 'wow' when I looked through the deck (much as I did with some of my others) but it didn't happen.

When I ordered the deck it was on the basis of "If I like it I will save No 2361 as a special deck and order one of the single decks for my own use".

Can I confess to feeling more attuned to the Golden Tarot by Kat Black (which I haven't yet acquired but have drooled over extensively on her website?)

I think it's just a matter of person preference and I'm in the minority when it comes to the Tarot of Prague. There has to be one or two, doesn't there? ;)

The Parrott is interesting - a little cartoony but I feel better than the low rating that AT gave it. It feels to be a readable deck and it reminds me of Jimmy Buffett, so it is not all bad. The Ananda is beyond words. For some reason, I love a deck with non-English words and the Ananda was already one of my favorites. Now if I could only find a German Rohrig and Petersen .......

I think the maragerete petersen is only in German ?
I got the ananda in German too as I ordered it from Germany - the German amazon site (amazon.de) has the original german as a standard, I think.
Not sure about the rohrig though...it is exported so much that the original german is hard to find now. Schade, nicht ;)

The Margarete Petersen Tarot is available in both English, and German from Tarot Garden.

contrascarpe
19-06-2004, 22:39
Actually, the Margarete Petersen is available in both languages. The two versions are different beyond just the language part - the German has a thicker card stock and the coloring is more of a lavender vs. the tan coloring of the English.

The Rohrig is also available in both languages and some of the cards themselves have slightly different images (German version has more nudity).

The Parrott is interesting - a little cartoony but I feel better than the low rating that AT gave it. It feels to be a readable deck and it reminds me of Jimmy Buffett, so it is not all bad. The Ananda is beyond words. For some reason, I love a deck with non-English words and the Ananda was already one of my favorites. Now if I could only find a German Rohrig and Petersen .......

Dan

Did you know that there is an online book (that you can download) for the Parrott deck? See if this link works www.geocities.com/parrott-tarot/mdk-text.html

It is an interesting deck although I haven't used it a lot I do feel it has more value than it has been rated.

Thanks, lunakasha. My sister, who knows little about tarot, has been through the deck and counted the cards for me, so I know it's all there. I bought it on eBay in a batch of five decks = it was the only one without a box, so the seller didn't know what it was. Thanks to the malign influence of AT ;) I was able to recognise it from a single card! It came with the Herbal, the Aquarian, the Morgan-Greer and the Fantasy Showcase, and I paid around the going rate for a Greenwood for the lot, so the seller was quite chuffed with the result.
I'm tempted by the Chat du Marseilles and the Ferret deck too, so I'm off to p-m Hudsongray!

I have a book on Giotto finally ordered to go with my Giotto deck: "Giotto : The Arena Chapel Frescoes" by James Stubblebine. The Giotto was my fifth deck, I've always loved it, and it was my first Lo Scarabeo deck--always special to me.

Llewellyn is sending me a complimentary copy of the Gilded YOOHOO!!!!!
So I can't wait for that.

Yesterday on a visit to the Half Price book store I found a brand new, still in the wrap, copy of The Ancient Egyptian Tarot for 9.98!
So I had to snag that baby up....
After all it's on my wish list.
And a 1970 copy of the IJJ Swiss, still in it's little red cardboard box, with the LWB. Printed by AG Muller.
I've never had this deck before but it's very interesting.
And the energy coming from it as a used deck was great.
The deck has been well loved but is still in very, very good shape.
They were only $5.98 so how could I leave them there?

Well, last night I ordered the pocket sized Illuminated Tarot from Carol Herzer. Her vivid re-colorations of the Rider deck are almost indescribable.

She takes PayPal which made the payment process much quicker. She also included a handmade pouch (in your choice of colors) with your personal favorite Major card (embossed?) on the front of the pouch.
At some point I will probably go ahead and order the standard sized cards, but I really want this little pocket deck to carry with me in my purse.

Probably the next deck I will order will be Tarot of a Moon Garden. Simply because this deck would be so easy for children to learn. I don't have any grandchildren yet.....but when I do.....I'll have a deck earmarked for them.

I'm still waiting for my Kris Waldherr Goddess deck (from a trade) to arrive - I expect it'll show up this week.
After that I have to make myself be very good and not have any decks on their way to me for a while! :( Somewhere, a Hadar (and, I think, perhaps a Sakki-Sakki) are getting itchy feet waiting to start their trip to me.

I traded my spare Tarot for Cats deck and book set for a Shapeshifter deck and book set. I know the Cats have arrived safely at their destination so I am eagerly awaiting the Shapeshifter.

Oh, and I bagged an unused boxed Arthurian (Hallowquest) deck and book set on Ebay yesterday for £12.00 including p & p so that should be arriving early next week too.

Two decks in five days :)

[ received it today!!]I should be receiving my Osho Zen deck any day now. Then in a few weeks, I'll be getting a Jungian Tarot deck. The Zen deck is to go with the Zen class I'm taking at B&N in Sept.

[received it]The Jungian deck is to put me in touch with my "shadow self." Or at least that is the idea.

[received it]I've also ordered a deck for my daughter. It's the "Maria Shaw's Tarot Kit for Teens."

Oh, and many, many books. This thread is for decks so I won't list the books.

**edit: Now that I've received all the decks I was waiting for, I'll have to find new decks to "wait for." :)

Still waiting for the Norse - from a trade, shipped from Canada.

I never thought I would ever post in this thread...because, well...

I order very few decks...and when it comes to trading decks, I am really just happier to see a deck go to a good home...and I see every deck I receive in the mail as a sort of bonus...making it a case of not really"awaiting" for anything...

I normally have the patience of a saint...
but right now...
Oh I am going absolutely crazy waiting for my Sakki- Sakki!!!!

I must have this deck!

I've just won a Karma Tarot and a Thoth with what some people call the 'yucky green borders' on ebay.

I've wanted a yucky green Thoth for ages - much richer than the grey bits on the Muller edition. Also the back designs are borderless.

The karma looks lovely too. I don't know this deck so it's a real bonus. What artwork I have seen looks very vibrant indeed.

I just snagged the legendary Hermetic Tarot on eBay for a paltry $64.01. This 78-card black & white deck is considered by many to be the most accurate version of the Golden Dawn's Book T (minus the color symbolism, of course.) With this I'll have completed my collection of serious (i.e. no Liber T) tarots in the Golden Dawn/Thelema tradition and I'll never have any reason to buy another deck again....:D

After 6 weeks crossing the Atlantic by snail mail, I received the Karma Tarot, an Icky Green Thoth and a second copy of the Universal Books Rider Waite.

The Karma Tarot is wacky, mysterious and fascinating. I would never have thought to buy it on its own but I'm so glad it was part of this lot.

The Icky Green Thoth isn't icky at all in my eyes - believe it or not I really prefer it to the standard grey bordered version !

The Universal books Rider Waite? I wanted a spare copy so that I could use my existing one for everyday reading. This new copy is surprisingly different (a later printing). I'll post about it on my original thread concerning this edition.

It was on Australian ebay. Most of their listings are duplicated on the American site, but this one wasn't. It started at $7.00, and I won it at $55.00. If I had been bidding against the usual pack of deck hounds, it would have escalated upwards, and over $200+ at least. It was sent last week, so I should have it soon.

Does it seem like there a ton of used decks on ebay going pretty cheap right now?

Well, I got some good bargains there, along with a few from Tarot Garden. (the reverse auction aka waiting game) So despite the financial setback suffered this week by my fiancee, I still found a wad of cash to blow on Tarot decks. I should feel guilty, but I don't... })

Ebay Decks:
Sasha Fenton
Aquarian (my second copy, first one is worn out)
Ancestral Path
Voyager (I may trim off the borders)
Northern Shadows
The Goddess Tarot
Average price on this bunch was about $6.00 per deck!!!

Tarot Garden Auction Decks:
Ananda Tarot
Tarot du Roy Nissanka
Tarocco Bizzarro
These cost more, but still good deals ;)

Happy Halloween.....

So that's who nabbed them out from under me! ;)

Actually, it's probably a good thing. I've been spending far too much on decks recently. Heh. Don't we all? :D

I got myself the Estensi, Golden Tarot of the Renaissance & the Radiant Rider Waite from the Tarot Garden reverse auction, so these are two items for which I'm waiting. I hope I didn't already mention this. Bah. My mind is going, I'm sure of it ..

Hi there. I am new to the forum but have been viewing posts for a while now.
At the moment I am awaiting the Ramses and Gay decks by Lo Scarabeo, and a Korean anime deck.

I recently received two of these major only decks and love them to bits. They have a wonderful naive innocence about them, but still follow the traditional imagery for the major arcana. One is called slumber land, the other is called angel.

Other than that I can't justify buying any more, having now got 20 decks in the collection/on their way to me.

Regards.

1. Thoth (Everyone rants and raves about this one, I wanna see what its all about!!!)
2. Robin Wood (The pictures look so magical, and very easy on the eye...the kind you could fall in love with...)
3. Gilded (This deck has so much detail, this could be my "reading for other people deck")
and
4. Im especially excited about my Sakki Sakki tarot which is due any day now!! This will be the one I will carry around with me EVERYWHERE!!!

I'm waiting for the Celtic Wisdom from ebay, and I'm trading for the Haindl, which I'm looking forward to as a new challenge.

I recently got the Legend Arthurian, which I'm just not connecting to. I got it because I love the stories, but the artwork isn't my cup of tea. I've put it up for trade, if anyone is interested.

The Inner Child is well worth getting. I was pleasantly surprised with this deck, which I bought on a whim. I love it, find it very playful, but accurate.

matthew goodwin the complete guide to numerology 2
Numerology for the New Age"
Living Your Destiny"
Numbers and You: A Numerology Guide for Everyday Living"
CREATING YOUR OWN TAROT CARDS"

the quest tarot was going for a good price (thanks deadstar)
the archtypal imagery was delayed by amazon people sigh but i still order with them ,, in fact all the just now stuff was placed last night.

the book i am working, i decided i should incorpate more numerology principles, as well understand the core numbers more,, and i figured before i get into astrology ,,i should have a better understanding of numbers.

the living your destiny got a good reviews for relating the numbers to the major arcana numbers
the numerology for the new age has a good review for psycology aspect of numerology
the numbers and you, a numerology guide for every day living sounds really good by contents and is 400 pages.

and finally the creating your own tarot cards is a book i read long ago and decided it was time i get it IF ONLY TO GET IT OFF MY WISH LIST WHEN I LOOK AT AMAZON lol
not only that but it would help me to prepare for making my own tarot some day as i rememeber what i used to know by reading it again. eheh

...but I think that my husband has ordered the Secret Tarot for my birthday (in two weeks) - he succumbed to my notverysubtle hints! Can't wait - I keep looking at the pictures on the web and here and I don't even know if there's any cards left that will be a surprise when I get it :)

When I got my Crystal Tarot a couple of months ago (which is stunningly beautiful) I had a hard time choosing between that one and the Secret...so I've had this one on my wishlist for a while now. I think it will help because the Crystal has non-illustrated pips and is a very bright, positive deck, and from what I've seen the Secret Tarot is quite mysterious and well....secret.

The Forest Folklore Tarot-any news on this one, guys ? I cancelled my order at Amazon and placed one at Magusbooks. Magusbooks emailed me saying it was on back order. Oh, I'll love getting my grubby paws on this one ! Not that I can complain, I really can't. In the last few months I have bought some truly wonderful decks, some of which are handmade. And they're for keeps !

Am also waiting for Jeff Minkovics' Guardian Tarot, for those times when only melancholic angels in creepy backgrounds will really do. (The winking Emoticon was meant to be at this point, not at the top. Aaagh. I've said it before, I am not a computer freak.)

I did get another book today too (The Mary Greer/Tom Little Understanding the Tarot Court one), so I can work on that for 3 weeks. :-) That and a gigantic reading I am in the middle of on some inner-child stuff (Wheel of Change Tarot). Looks like I'll be busy for a while.

After a great deal of waffling, I am now impatiently awaiting an Inner Child deck. :) Yes, yes, I know, the art is bright and crayola-like. But I like crayolas. :D

I love bright colors, I love fairy tales, and I really love the idea of a deck I can use around my kids without worrying about nudity or excessive violence. :)

Lurea-aure, I too love bright colours and fairy tales. The Inner Child deck looks
wonderful-my Reiki therapist and I use it sometimes to round off a session. I'll be getting my own copy in due course. I certainly don't think it's just cute and frilly-fairy tales go very deep.

On the more immediate issue of waiting-I caved in yesterday and ordered the IRONWING. I was going to wait until New Year but, hey, it's hardly a crime.:D

I am also awaiting the AECLECTIC ANGEL from laluce and MOVIE MONSTER from dolphingirl. Both these decks are Major Arcana only-very different in style but what they do have in common is that they have been created by very talented women who are also members of this Forum. :D

Also, slightly different, though they are actually entitled "Tarot"-the DREAMING IN COLOR cards from Mindy Sommers. She has worked with fractals and Photoshop and all kinds of things I don't really understand to make a deck of rather stunning cards, most of them depicting plants. It's an interesting idea, I love the scans, and I have a hunch these cards will be great for meditation. I am more and more drawn now to the natural world as an essential part of my spirituality-thus this deck, and Ironwing, and the newly-received Garden Path and Gaian. Blimey, it HAS been a rich year for new decks !


UPDATE : The AECLECTIC ANGEL arrived on Monday. IRONWING and MOVIE MONSTER arrived today. I am very happy.:D

There were no pics, so I don't really know what I've bought.
Last night when I saw and bid it was some stupid time of night and I thought I was getting the same one as I had years ago.
But now I think this one might be older.

Lord knows what I've got.

And I won't find out till it arrives. ie. not for ages!

I have already received several generous Borders gift cards from my co-workers (don't let anyone tell you lawyers aren't nice people!) and one from my parents, so have pigged out with everything I have been wanting. (Of course there's always more to want . . .) In the mail to me:

Vision Tarot
Inner Child Cards and Workbook
Jungian Tarot and book (Aeclectic deck of the week made me do it!)
Tarot of Ceremonial Magic book (to go with the deck from an Aeclectic trade!)
The Oracle of Kabbalah: Mystical Teachings of the Hebrew Letters (a sale book to make up free shipping!)
(And a book on the Japanese tea ceremony that I have been wanting forever!)

The Goddess Tarot deck & workbook. The workbook seems to have nearly identical card information found in the book, but adds an extra description paragraph. The only difference seems to be that *instead* of four sample readings you get three additional spreads.

I'm waiting for 3 decks :

1) Bachblueten Deva cards, from Germany-I was thrilled to come upon these in earlier threads-each Deva embodies the spirit of the Bach Flower Essences, something I want to find out more about anyway in the coming year. But they are just gorgeous as art as well-rather like Sulamith Wulfing, poetic, dreamy, soulful.

2) Celestial Tarot, by Kay Steventon

3) Sakki-Sakki Tarot-I've been won over by the rave reviews and the funky brightness of the colours.




Update (10/1/05) The Sakki-Sakki arrived this morning. The Celestial is currently out of stock. I'm going to put that one on hold for a while.

I'm in the Netherlands and I ordered from the German amazon.
I ordered on Dec. 15 and they promised a delivery time of 10-14 days. So at the end of December I got a mail that they could not deliver the book within the set time. I thought there was also a marketplace seller selling one, but I ordered at amazon because I had a discount voucher.

I finally ordered the Fey Tarot... I'm looking very forward to receiving it and beginning to work with it. From what I've seen and read online, I've really fallen in love with it. It has so much of what I connect with in a tarot deck: a universal quality which transcends any specific culture, a balance of darkness and light, new perspectives on familiar themes, use of posture and vivid color to express certain energies and moods. I also love its playfulness.

My next deck originally was going to be International Icon Tarot, but now that one will have to wait until next time.

Today at the store I bought another deck. Gee, what a surprise. It's a "Xultun Tarot: The Maya Tarot Deck", in the green slipcase. One of the quintessential hippie decks from circa 1970. I'm on a circa 1970 roll right now. I was putting off purchase for close to a year to test my metal, yet the sale priced deck was still there, even though it's OOP. :)

I ordered the Tarot of Prague from Magic Realism press as an early, very early, Christmas gift for myself and it never came. (The holidays? Homeland Security? Who knows?) They're in England, and Karen is doll. Anyway, I wrote them Friday before last and they sent another set on Tuesday. These are seriously nice folks, and they're taking a bath on the exchange rate these days -- Karen asked if I could do something about pumping up the dollar. . . !

Anyhow, I just wanted to give them a plug. Karen is interested, BTW, in feedback about reading from the deck. The mark of true Tarot folks.

Of course I'm watching the front porch like a hawk. . . .

So I'm waiting for the Medieval Scapini. And as those of you from the Llewellyn sale thread know, in a moment of Marseille-induced weakness I ordered an Ancient Marseille, an Etteila, and may the gods help me, ...Gnomes. 'Nuff said.

I've started making these weird intutive leaps by comparing old/traditional decks with slicker, more contemporary decks. Juxtaposition is always illuminating, I s'pose.

Two more trades in the mail as well: the Vassaux Tarot of the Templars and and (fingers crossed) the Angelotti Phoenix. And a gift of a Camoin Marseille.

And now Diana has sent me on a quest for a Heron Conver... that's soon to follow, no doubt.

The notice Canpar left says that they make one more delivery attempt (tomorrow) and then the item is returned to the shipper. I'll be at work tomorrow so will have to leave instructions for delivery person.

I'm waiting for my Tarot of the New Vision, which I ordered weeks ago, but was held up. I can't wait - I think I'll like this deck far more than the original RWS! I just got word it was shipped yesterday, so hopefully it'll be in my hot little hands soon.

Also, the Housewives' Tarot, another one that I just cannot wait to own. I used to absolutely detest this deck, but now I love it, and I don't even have it yet!

The problem is that both are being shipped to my parent's home, which is in the States. I ordered the New Vision while I was still home over Christmas Break, and I expected it to arrive before I headed back to England, but no. So I'll have to wait even longer, because once they arrive home, my parents are shipping them to me.

The Dusserre Dodal will be your best mate, Terri :). You'll know the meaning of wise and experienced when you start reading with it.

I am expecting the Rodes and Sanchez Tarot, and I've just ordered El Gran Tarot Esoterico from Alida. No-one on this forum could tell me much about this intruiging tarot, although Fulgour pointed me to a website. I tried to find a site to order it directly from Spain, but no luck :( - All I found was a shop that sold foreign (non-Spanish) tarot, not even their own!!!

In case I have another craze, knows of any online shop in Spain that sells Spanish-made Tarot?

Anyone know where I can find out more about the Dusserre Dodal? I've heard good things, but haven't been able to dig up much information. I'd love to see scans of the deck and learn more about it. Got any links? :)

Hi Bleuivy,

here's a link to the Jean Dodal Majors

http://letarot.com/pages/49.les_images_du_tarot_de_jean_dodal.html

on Jean-Claude Flornoy's site (in the French section - for some reason the English section doesn't link to this page) - he has made a restored Majors-only edition, very beautiful (they were a Christmas gift and much appreciated), which he sets alongside the originals (it is the originals that are photo-reproduced in the Dusserre edition). Unfortunately the Dodal Dusserre is out of print.

I'm waiting for :

Lovers' Path-the scans I've seen are just so beautiful and romantic-Isolde's hair, the pathos of Swan Lake, etc.

Brotherhood Tarot-this sounds fascinating-it's a celebration and exploration of Radical Faery- a sort of Gay Tarot meets Fairy Ring Oracle.I'm looking forward to it very much.

I ordered my three sale decks from Llewellyn around the same time as everyone else. So, I waited quite a while, then I hit this intensive travel period. That is, off before dawn on Monday, back Friday evening (or midnight one week). Llewellyn, in their wisdom, used a courier service instead of (yay!) the post office. So I stagger back one Friday night to see a sticker on my door saying righteously that they had tried to deliver twice and the parcel had gone back to sender. I roll my eyes.

I went to the web site and got a 1-800 number which I called. Oh yes, I am up there in Canada. She gives me another 1-800 number, but apparently the branch office keeps much more restricted hours. Monday morning I fly to Vancouver, and phone them from there. She agrees to take the returned parcel and put it into the mail. That was 8 working days ago, it finally comes today (I could drive to Mississauga in less than 6 hours).

I am walking back from the mail box cluster thinking this sure seems small for three decks. Walk up the front walk, and there in its shiny pink glory is yet another sticker from the courier service announcing they had tried to deliver a parcel from Llewellyn and glory be! no one was home. Luckily, this time I caught the first delivery, so I could sign it and theoretically they will leave it tomorrow.

The parcel had only one of three decks. I sure hope they are going to deliver two tomorrow because I am gone all next week.

So, what am I expecting in the mail? Two decks from Llewellyn and one 1971 RWS from an eBay seller. ($2.75US plus shiping.) :)

My mother is coming to visit in early March, so this is my opportunity to take advantage of great deals in the US and have her bring them over for free. Hence, I've gone a little hog-wild with the decks this month.

I'm waiting for:
Victoria Regina set
Mythic Tarot set
Froud's Faerie Oracle set (new to oracle cards, but love faeries, should be interesting)
Fairy Ring Oracle (bought mainly for the book, we'll see about the cards)
Mountain Dream Tarot
Gilded Tarot

The last two are from a trade, and their imminent arrival makes me immeasurably happy. :) And I found all the others for less than $10 each on various sites, so they were must-buys. And now I'm hiding my credit card from myself! Honestly, I have enough new decks to keep me studying full-time for the rest of the year!

But then there's that new Secret Forest tarot from Lo Scarabeo...

The Dreamer
08-02-2005, 10:22
The Liber T. I'd never heard of it before reading the thread "public readings and raunchy decks". After hearing how twisted it was I had to check it out ;) and was very impressed by the artwork (I love the Thoth already). I find so many decks which have nudity or dark themes very repulsive but I like this one a lot. I think it has some good symbolic reflections of our culture's repressions and sensual/religous conflicts. I can't wait to get it.

University Books edition [pre U.S. Games] of the Rider-Waite deck ...

It arrived! :)

Funny story, by the way ... The letter carrier put the parcel into my postal box in the building. I couldn't get the parcel out of the postal box; the parcel was a bit too wide/tall. So I had to get out the scissors ... and open the parcel while the parcel was still inside the postal box. :)

The whole "addiction" running joke is almost turning not funny. I ordered 6 decks today, my payday. 2 from ebay, 1 from discountnewagebooks.com and 3 from overstock.com. They were all much less than full price, but really . . .

Haindl
Etruscan
Nigel Jackson
Mantegna
Ancient Minchiate Etruria
Lenormand Oracle

I'm sure they all will be great, but in the meantime I am enforcing a deck moratorium on myself. I'll keep a Devil card posted somewhere to remind me--no more addictive behavior!!!

I have so many new decks right now that I don't have time to learn them properly. So I am shutting myself off. Which is a good thing, since the cash flow situation has been log-jammed. Hoping the spring melt will start things flowing again.

I just bought another mustache cup ( I collect more than tarot decks, ya know!) off ebay - happened to luck out and be home when the auction was about to end. I have lost many auctions because they ended while I was at work and someone would outbid me by 50 cents!

My ebay tactics:

Put something you really want on 'watch' - never put in a bid with 6 days left to go - you will usually lose.

Keep tabs on when the auction will end - what day at what time, because on 'watch' you don't get notices like you do when you are bidding.

Make sure you are willing to bid high if it is worth it. Make one bid just before the end of the auction in case you cannot be there for the end.

Chances are others are doing the same tactics (duh!) With only one bid left with 5 hours to go, there is a possibility that others are not going to bid. Take your chances when you make that final bid. It's only ebay; something else will always turn up.

I, meanwhile, just ordered the Ancestral Path deck and book set from overstock.com. It was so cheap that I couldn't resist. My parents will be bringing them to me in March, assuming everything goes alright and they arrive in time.

And that is IT. No more purchacing of tarot decks for me for a very long time. No no no no no.

There. I have spoken.

Right now I'm waiting for the New Tarot of the Aquarian Age, the Prediction Tarot deck and book set, and the PoMo deck and book set. I'm also waiting on the Sola Busca deck and book which I traded for a few days ago.

It's true, it's true! But on the other hand: I find myself feeling the way I did years ago when I'd mail in 50 cents and two boxtops for a Cosmic Space Ray Pistol with a Secret Chewing Gum chamber. I'm not sure grownups are supposed to start checking the mailbox the next day.

My current Space Ray Pistol is a USG Tarot Classic set. I love my other Burdel deck, and decided I couldn't resist a second sample at a bargain basement price. Loud colors, and a positively psychedelic Ace of Cups! Excuse me, I have to go check the mailbox.

I just today received the Hudes deck and I think I am in love. :) The images are soft, watercolorish, collage-y using what appear to be book endpaper patterns, serene faces, and imagery that differs quite a bit from most RW decks, though it is still a RW based deck. I've done some readings with it already and it is dreamy.

I have on order mini Celtics, mini Secret and the Marco Polo.

I am having to really curtail my buying this year so may only opt for three more decks the whole year. A sort of belated new year resolution I guess. Suffice to say I have my eyes on the Tarot of Dreams, 78 doors and the Druidcraft.

Me! Me! I've had to severely cutrail my spending lately due to the lack of a job + US Dollar vs. British Pound being so crap. I haven't bought a deck in a month! And for me lately, this is a big deal. My plan is to buy only a few decks all year. Of course, this won't happen, but I can plan, right?

Besides, I'm still getting to know my Fey and my new Tarot of the New Vision, and getting reaquainted with my old Universal Waite. So I keep telling myself I don't need new decks right now. I still want them though. ;)

Speaking of new decks, I've been waiting for my Tarot of the Old Path for about three weeks from overstock.com. I'm having it shipped to my parents in the States. Anyone had to wait this long with something from overstock.com, or should I start getting worried?

Surface mail takes MONTHS, so I hope that's not the method you chose. ^^ This is all through the postal service, I don't know about UPS or FedEx international services. Don't they usually give you a shipping estimate w/ the order?

I sure hope it isn't surface mail :)
Actually I don't know what the shipping method will be, she didn't say and I didn't have an opportunity to choose anything. Perhaps I could ask her.

Thanks,

I found the most perfect fabric for a tarot bag for this deck.

One is the La Corte dei Tarocchi.

Just went to Amazon to check prices for the Bright Ideas Deck. I totally wan't gonna buy anything but Amazon's all like, it's totally better if you buy it with the Housewives Tarot (which I also had my eye on). And I'm all like, get outa town! And they're all, no, for sure, and you'll totally save money. And I'm like, ummm, okay, if you really think their "better together". And then they're like, if you spend a couple more bucks we totally won't charge you for shipping. And I'm all like, I did want to read Putting the Tarot to Work. And they're all, we know, mwah ha ha ha ha! So I was sucked into their little plot and all three items are now on the way. And then they're like Putting the Tarot to Work is so much better if you buy it with such-and-such book. But I was totally not gonna fall for that again.

Peace,

I played with the original German language-deck, decorated and wrote and enjoyed a creative time with the courts and majors...and then added decoration to the plainer pip cards...so my old deck needs a fresh translation and hopefully there's prettier and bigger scans of the majors and courts...but the pips, it may be the same and the book might not be French, Italian or English...

I've been checking out oracle decks this last couple of days, I needed something different but didn't know what but now I think I may have found what I was looking for in this deck that seems so modern and seems to be a cross between a tarot and an oracle deck. :)

At the moment, I'm waiting for the SHIP OF FOOLS' TAROT by the late, lamented Brian Williams. Where possible, he worked with original woodcuts from the C16th German classic NARRENSCHIFF-when it was not possible, he modelled the images in that style.

Apparently the deck comes with a book. And because Brian Williams knew more than a thing or two about Tarot, the book will be a pleasure to read. I'm usually a big colour person, and this deck is entirely black-and-white, but I think we'll get along perfectly well together !

I am awaiting the beautiful Mantegna from Lo Scarabeo.
I special ordered it from Barnes and Noble.
I've been doing that a lot lately.
I pay no postage and it comes in in about a week.

And I found a second hand Voyager at a good price for a friend on Amazon.
She keeps trying to steal mine and I've already gave away two of them and had to replace them.
Funny how new reader are so attracted to that deck.
Must be the visual impact of all that stuff on the cards.

I've just ordered the Mini Connolly.

And , on the other end of the price spectrum :) I've placed an order for the Abyssal Tarot, which the creator (Shelly Corbett, a renowned photographer) hopes to have ready by the end of May. It promises to be stunning.

The New Orleans Voodoo. I just couldn't resist - to be enjoyed with hot (hot) sauce, suitable charms and some excited apprehension. And a lot of pleasure, carnival spirit and interest, I am sure.

I hear it's a good deck to explore the shadow side. I am glad, I have some shadows to explore, and some of them very close to the Voodoo deck. But I want to do it in music and dancing.

I just broke down and bought the Druidcraft from Amazon. For years I've been waiting for a pagan deck that I could relate to and this seems like the one. I was so tempted to clear out my wish list with the Fey Tarot and Tarot of the Journey to the Orient but I remembered my promise to myself about "simplifying my life." I resisted temptation...but barely lol!

I am waiting for New Orleans Voodoo also! I am soo ecstatic! Giddy even! hmmm, Helvetica I am noticing a synchronicity here lately.... i'd love to hear what you think of it, as you should be recieving yours before I get mine...I only ordered it yesterday.I've just received the New Orleans voodoo, Astrid. I looks very powerful - lots of African memories for me there. I'll take my time with it, however, and try and approach it in the correct frame of mind (and rituals: you're supposed to wrap your deck for 9 days with some nail or hair clippings - now that's Voodoo - or Voodoo lite, at least). Not one to be rushed: very different from classic tarot of any system I know, all he names are changed, though it has integrated (bizzarely) the Kabbalah.

The drawings are wonderful, rich and carnivalesque, even the monsters are bright. Makes me feel all rhumba-dancy to go through the cards, though I can see the dark side of them even with a cursory glance. The cards are smallish, and barely laminated - I like the papery feel of them. The very first card I saw was titled Congo, named after Congo Square in New Orleans - it is the suit attributed to water: ah joy! I lived in Congo, and loved it. Many of the cards are in Creole French.

The book is fascinating - an education in Voodoo and Santería in itself.

Does anyone have the Inner Child Cards deck? what do you think of it (pros, cons, etc.)? I might be awaiting it in the mail--if I decide to order it.

The Inner Child deck is worth having. It's a very nicely painted deck and the stories in that book are very interesting, although I may not necessarily agree with some references to certain cards. If you are a child at heart, you will hopelessly fall in love with it.

The creator of this deck has at least 3 decks to her credit , but this is my favorite.

The accompanying book is a very hefty one, partly because the paper quality is heavier than usual.

This deck is pleasing to the sight, the colors are vibrant and vivid, but the size of the cards are much larger than normal cards ( I hope you know this already ), which I consider either a plus or a minus, depending on the quality and quantity of readings you wish to do at any particular time.

Although I drooled over this set for months in a row , I got it much later in my tarot career but I would definitely add it to my collection if I were you, before it goes out of print.

Hi Rusty Neon,

You got yourself a sweet deal: a sought-after out-of-print deck in exchange for an inexpensive in-print one. Hey, why didn't I know about it?

Actually, I picked up the Norse Tarot on Ebay UK for a bargain price because it was unidentified and the seller had no idea what he was offering. I simply didn't connect with it because it had no book - just the cards - and I wasn't familiar enough with the deities and Norse sagas to identify the images. (I also took an instant dislike to the Death card.....)

Then Kissa listed the Golden Tarot as one of her trades, I have wanted it since it was published and was happy to offer my bookless Norse in exchange. I suppose I could have offered it in the Aeclectic Trading forum but I hadn't really considered it. In the event, she decided to keep her own copy of the Golden and send me a brand new one instead which suited me (and saved her a lot in postage).

I've traded very successfully with Kissa before so I was glad she was thrilled with my offer of the Norse. I always scan an entire deck before I trade it away - for personal reference purposes - sometimes you want to compare a particular card with different decks and it's good to have archived scans.

For various reasons, decks just don't make it as far as the trading forum on occasions. Never mind, if I spot another bargain unidentified Norse, I'll keep you in mind ;)

I'm probably most excited about the Celtic Shaman's Pack....it may be the closest I get to a Greenwood for a while yet (it's done by the same artist). And it was amazingly cheap! Perhaps because none of the usual keywords (tarot, oracle, deck, cards, etc.) were in the auction title.

I'm not sure if I'm going to compliment it with a colored deck (I was thinking a Marseilles tarot). But, I may not, because I've truly fallen in love with the Light & Shadows Tarot just from a few pictures I've seen online! :)

It's funny because only a few months ago, I'd've balked at getting a Marseilles or a black and white tarot deck, because I'd've thought they were too "simple." Maybe I've come to a stage where I appreciate the more "simple" things? ;)

It is brilliant, really lovely and so clever. I love the reversal aspect of this deck, very interesting and nicely packaged, similar to the Gilded, in the box with book and black organza bag.

Also got my Gummi bear tarot too, LOVE IT, lots of fun ;o)

Waiting (frantically) for Luce, bought weeks ago on e-bay (UK mail is the PITS; the dealer is 100% OK and the delay CERTAINLY isn't down to her) and Revelations from amazon.....

Waiting. Holding breath. Sigh...........

Very much looking forward to each of them!

It certainly is a bit special - you will really enjoy it. I was so lucky with this one; just happened to be walking through Paris (look, it's closer to me than to you, OK, just like you guys going to Chicago !) and passed the shop that published it - there it was in the window. I mean, you can't pass up on serendipity like that, can you.
(Note - if you are broke, there are a couple of streets in Paris to avoid like the plague !)

It was cheap then, too. That's why I have been lucky; most of my (excessive) collection was bought at the original price, rather than on e-bay etc.

. . . most of my (excessive) collection was bought at the original price, rather than on e-bay etc.

I had also had all of my decks bought brand new, many right after they were first published, but recently I ordered a used/as new deck/set of The New Orleans Voodoo that I had been -on and off- drooling over and which should be shipping soon.

Has anyone been really reading with this deck? What do you think of it ?

I am also expecting the Medieval Cat deck to ship any day now.

Just Forest of Souls, which I got for free (gift certificate).

No more decks for quite a while. I just got three new ones (Housewives, Osho Zen, and Druidcraft) and have had essentially no time to even START working with them.

gregory

And I just gave in and ordered Songs for the Journey home (seemed the least I can do since the artist is over here just now.... Well it's an excuse of sorts.)

Just cancelled one of my credit cards. Will it stop me ? Probably not.....

17-05-2005, 08:02
the 78 card Marsella, yay! I am really happy about my choice (this is my first TdM, and it took some time to figure out which one to choose) and can't wait to see it in person!

I have the Voodoo, Bluelotus, and I do read with it, but what do you mean by really? I read almost soley for myself. I did do one reading for someone here, but it was a bit off, or I was!

I like the deck, but it's not one I'd use to do a reading for a pregnant mom or anything! I'd love to talk about this deck somewhere...maybe we can all get together in an appropriate forum sometime and do that! (Helvetica is another here who has the Voodoo deck! I'd love to hear her experiences with it)

That looks like a French Pattern game deck - not much fun for fortune telling with, but great for playing the game (and I would never want to play tarot/tarocchi with a good reading deck !) Kaplan has a load of them in vol 1 - they usually have double headed trumps with pretty little scenery on !

I was going to say waiting for Songs for the Journey Home, but Dwariko is in the UK just now, and must have had some with her; I got them the day after I ordered !!! SO fast I don't even have time to look at them properly today - I don't have "free" space till next week !!! Work is the pits. Time to quit. But then how would I finance my sins ?

Persephone - I know just how you feel. I only wanted one deck in 1975 when this all started..... Just because it was interesting to see one....

I have just ordered Arnell Ando's 1st deck, the Hero's Journey. This deck predates her Transformational Tarot, which she originally self-published. It is due to be re-printed by US Games.

Arnell has been making copies of the HJ by hand, including a woooden box and book, for 10 years now. She had stopped making them while readying Transformational for USG, but has begun production of HJ again. The cards are 3x5, larger than the Transformational.

I can't wait; it should be here next week!

And I've ordered the German edition of the Margarete Petersen...it's coming all the way from Germany, so there's no telling how long of a wait I'll have for that one....

You're very welcome ! I am about to cave in and order Carole Herzer's iridescent deck... I have NO money but work is so horrid just now I thought...

Well, no, I didn't think at all. If I ever did I wouldn't have as many decks as I have and an overdraft almost enough to pay for a new World Trade (and that's before the credit card bills...) Still - off to Scotland and no computer access for a day or two. That should help.

It was reissued - by USG - in 1996; that's the copy I have. You may find it with Somerville (http://www.playingcardsales.co.uk/cards) in France (formerly of Edinburgh) - mine was their catalogue no 12625, which still shows up at £12.50 sterling. I have never known him mess up, but you can always e-mail to check, and he will NOT fail to issue a refund if anything ever does go wrong. (I have to say that nothing ever has gone wrong, with me, except that once he undercharged me by miles. I have dealt with him for 20 years.....!) Tarotgarden (www.tarotgarden.com) also have it listed as a special order item - again, they won't let you down, and buying from them helps this website.

I'm still waiting on the Vertigo (2nd edition). Purchased it from an eBay seller about 3 weeks ago, and it still isn't here :(. It was supposed to have been sent by Priority mail, too. So I just sent an email to the seller to find out what's up. It's a long-time, reputable seller--and I purchased the optional insurance!--so hopefully it will all turn out in the end.

In much happier news, I finally caved in and bought the Froud's Fairies Oracle set (also from eBay). **does happy dance** :D :D

Edited to add: Hi gregory, I just sent you a PM about the seller :). Since this person is, to the best of my knowledge, a well-respected eBay seller, I didn't want to broadcast their name in the thread.

gregory
24-05-2005, 05:52
Which reliable seller were you dealing with ? Because I just had the same experience with one - and it turned up today after more than 4 weeks. AND it was postmarked when she said she'd mailed it - though was surface rather than the air I had expected !

PS thanks for the PM - point taken; not nice to name unless there is certain shame !!! Hope the deck arrived.

I am waiting for The Classic Tarot by Lo Scarabeo. Very keen to see what it's like - it will be my first "historical" deck. :)

I won; now waiting for "Klee in colour" from e-bay - looks gorgeous and I love Klee anyway !

I thought that was you, so I didn't bid. Besides, the seller will list another one in time. Only about a dozen of the hundred copies have been put on ebay. Cobgratulations Gregory!

gregory
13-06-2005, 02:58
You should have ! I actually technically lost, and instantly got a second chance offer at my (genuine) max bid.... I had noticed they were coming up one at a time, but the price has been rising steadily..... used to be BIN at $70 !!!!

But how did you know it was MOI ????? I know we have been up against each other at times, but were it for the name of your collection, I wouldn't have known your e-bay ident....! CAUGHT ! Sigh. So much for anonymity.

Gerbear
13-06-2005, 03:15
Hehe, I had strong suspicions before, since i watch ebay, but your recent Perdutti bids and a few others, narrowed it down to YOU. The Klee was just a confirmation. Loose lips, sink ships. :) Btw, I'm waiting on the Tarot of the Ages, one which has escaped attention for years, but thanks to EarthAngel2911, will soon be headed my way.

Sigh. Oh well, at least here I am among friends. And if it means you won't bid against me - I've only ONCE beaten you while you were doing !!!!
Still - life is easier now revdaudrey has a new hobby ! :joke:

Sorry Tarot of the Ages took you so long - there is something to be said for buying things when they come out !!!

I went mad and ordered BB Cats and Fey today. I'm so excited.

I think Gerbear should be awarded major karma points for restraint on e-bay.

I got a bit confused about what gregory actually won.

I'm moving my new decks from my wishlist to my collection now. What does everyone else do? Wait til they actually arrive?

Gregory technically didn't win, but just lost a Klee; got a second chance offer at her max bid price and bought it. She also bid on and lost two Perduti decks, but then managed to make a deal with the seller (who does have a store in Italy) to buy the whole set.

She is now about to negotiate a credit card deal.... she hopes ! She is very grateful to gerbear for his restraint and wishes she had any restraint at all.....

I don't put anything from wish list to own until they arrive. Too many things disappear in the mail !

BTW I have just discovered that the Klee is put out by a friend of mine. BUY IT, EVERYONE !!!!! (amazing what surfaces when you get the e-bay bill !)

Gerbear
14-06-2005, 02:29
I try to restrain myself when an Aeclectian is involved. Don't want to discourage a new or growing collection. It's also easy to restrain myself due to the fact that I don't use credit for any deck purchases.

As for the Klee, I will be buying it, but these private sales keep popping up with tempting goodies. I just found out about a Pamela's Portraits offering, which I just must have. However there are about two dozen decks lined up ahead of it, so it will have to wait, unless I win the lottery!

Next up on the arrival list is the Moure Tarot and the Transwaite Tarot.

gregory
15-06-2005, 01:33
Pamela's Portraits - wow (WHERE ?? - no I shan't bid; I ABSOLUTELY PROMISE; I am just amazed and it would be good to see images). I doubt if I could afford it anyway - especially as (in order to trade - that's what started this...) I am now awaiting (for myself) White Cats, 1001 Nights and Secret Forest.............

Oh G*d (or whomever one puts in in this forum) - I have to learn restraint. PERSONAL restraint, not just e-bay etiquette restraint !

Sigh.

Gerbear
15-06-2005, 03:39
Sorry Gregory, Pamela's Portraits wasn't on ebay. It was from a private sale that I came across, number four this year. A lot of my recent decks(Transwaite, Caduceo di Volta, Mystery of Egypt, Mexicano, Arcani di Leonardo, Tresors du Tarot, etc...) have been from these sales. I have about thirty more decks reserved, so my ebay activities are down as a result.

gregory
15-06-2005, 03:52
Where DO you find these sales - I have ONE dealer who passes on details, but...... Mind, that IS where I got the Sexual - a less than pleasant deck but interesting and not common. I shall not be posting THAT as a clip ! (I suspect one could get done by the web police....)

Gerbear
15-06-2005, 04:18
Another deck I'm awaiting is the Gambedotti Gourmet, not the folded portfolio, but his other deck. You can see it at Tarot Garden. All of these sales came to me from online collector friends, who managed to buy what they wanted, before mentioning them to me! LOL However, the leftovers are just fine, thank you.

gregory
15-06-2005, 04:26
I think that's the one I have (Tarocco Gastronomico Gambedotti - from Club della Buona Carta) - I don't do folded up portfolios ! Enjoy ! VERY odd !

Emeraldgirl
16-06-2005, 13:24
I was being really good but then I folded :)

I am waiting on Stuart Kaplan's Encyclopedia of Tarot volumes II & III from Amazon. They were on sale and sooooooooooooooooooooo cheap.

Saturness
16-06-2005, 13:29
I'm waiting for both The Fey Tarot and The Fortune Teller's Deck! The Fortune Teller's Deck was in bargain price at Amazon, i just couldn't not buy it (all hail the credit card!)! And The Fey Tarot is a gift from Kara!

They will take one month to arrive though...standard international shipping is crappy =/

I have just committed myself ... AGAIN ... to abject poverty. I have just bought the Giorgio Trevison Tarot of the Renaissance, Giordano Berti's Dante Tarot and the Giotto. Yay ... for decks ... got to wait for them to come from the US, but it's another rice fortnight LOL.

mythos

PS: I'm insane ... no self control. Just bought the Albano Waite on ebay ... the next fortnight is going to be sooooooo 5 of pentacles. I imagine, with the Albano, I'll be able to look at a new and more colourful version of me being out in the snow and starving.

I'm awaiting the Tarot of the Lepidopteran People, by AT member, blue-fusion.

Annabelle
18-06-2005, 02:44
I'm waiting for the Robin Wood, the Cachet, the Tarot of the Four Elements, the Haindl Rune Oracle, and last but not least, the Margarete Petersen (which still hasn't arrived from Germany!).

Those should be my last purchases for a while, though, as I'm going on vacation in July and want to have plenty of spending money on hand.

Alta
19-06-2005, 22:24
Sigh, insanity struck again. Why didn't I buy The Golden Dragon when it was easy to get? Anyway, saw it as a Buy it Now on eBay and after being stern with myself for two days gave in and ordered it. I just love my dragon decks, couldn't help it.

Starlily
20-06-2005, 00:36
I'm waiting for the Fey and the Gothic (Vargo). I'm also thinking about nabbing one of the Mythics on E-Bay.

21-06-2005, 22:14
I am presently awaiting quite a mix-

Ancient Minchiate Etruria
Ancient Italian Tarot

first time ever I am awaiting a deck in the mail... and it just HAS to be that one :D

the Tarot of the Lepidopteran People by blue_fusion...

Owlface
22-06-2005, 02:16
I'm waiting for the Abyssal Tarot-have actually paid for it now and am eagerly awaiting its release in the next few weeks.

And I ordered the Archeon.


I'm not an art expert but I do believe that both these are influenced by the Symbolist painters. Aaaah.

HearthCricket
22-06-2005, 10:28
And I just ordered the Soprafino. I am now doing a very happy dance! I may be afraid to even breathe on these cards, they are so gorgeous!

gregory
23-06-2005, 03:25
Just got my White Cats, Secret Forest and 1001 Nights - and also, which I won rather suddenly, the New Woman, which managed to get to me in just 6 days from Australia - impressive !

That leaves the 5 Perduti decks and the Klee - plus the Lepidopteran People and the 2 Marsellas, which I will have to wait for till I get to Canada in July, as they will be coming from the excellent TG along with my Kaplan - which is MUCH cheaper to have mailed to me there !!! Sigh. Suspense. OH - and there are all the bags I traded for..... if I play my cards right (hee hee) I will never have to sew another !

what is this "new woman" deck that you speak of?

Gerbear
23-06-2005, 03:56
I'm waiting for the Akron Tarot, and the Tree of Life Tarot. They should all arrive next week with my wonderful Lepidopteran!! The Akron is by the same guy who worked on the Baphomet, but this one has much more color.

Btw, that New Woman deck is in the Tarot Garden database, listed as from England. I, also have the Australian version, which has the same cards. It's majors only, with a modern career woman theme.

shaveling
23-06-2005, 05:01
The old, Dodal-based USG Tarot of Marseilles. This time I did it the right way, and ordered it from Mr. Somerville. I chose the economy shipping, so I've got a bit of a wait ahead.

Annabelle
23-06-2005, 05:07
I'm excited :). This past weekend I ordered the Ferret tarot, the Chat du Marseille, and the New Vision tarot (no, not the LS Tarot of the New Vision), and they should all arrive on Saturday or thereabouts.

Aside from those I'm not waiting on too much . . . a few items that I've traded for, plus the Tarot for Cats that I won on eBay the other day, and of course, last but never least, the Margarete Petersen, which still hasn't arrived from Germany. Soon, though . . . it will be here soon, I just know it. :)

23-06-2005, 07:15
gregory~

Not an easy one to get hold of - but it was cheap, and I'd wanted it for a while ! It isn't a real feminist thing; it was given away with a magazine of that name, in England in about 2000 with a repeat performance in Australia in 2003, I think. "Hip comic" artwork by Nicole Onslow and Emma Marlin; majors only. As gerbear says, there are images on the Tarotgarden site... and a review on Morwenna's pages - if you speak German LOL !


.... last but never least, the Margarete Petersen, which still hasn't arrived from Germany. Soon, though . . . it will be here soon, I just know it. :)
German mail seems to be appalling just now - I'm waiting for something completely different from there, and it has been AGES ! :)

I see that the deck has already been explained, but it comes up quite regularly on Australian ebay, and is usually quite cheap.

gregory
23-06-2005, 15:44
It was cheap ! But I'm surprised you say that; I run a regular search which picked it up this time and it has only done so twice before ! Still - I have it now, and being selfish - that's all that matters to me ! :)

iseekserendipity
23-06-2005, 17:17
the Robin Wood Tarot deck. first of all because it's a very RWS based deck, second because of its pagan point of view, third because it will be practical to use to read for others (potentially)!
but there are so many more on my wishlist!

Of course I can excuse myself as these decks are not in shops in Australia, and when else would I get them hand delivered huh? })

24-06-2005, 14:15
Well, you will laught.

I´m wainting for the 78 degrees of widsom, because i heard so much about it here at the forum.
The pictoral key of tarot, because this isnt translate to portuguese.

Because i dint found any at the shop. So because of this i bought too the other 2, but i must wait.

gregory
28-06-2005, 07:02
Mine is the original in the limited ed of 99 too.... Myabe I just didn't look at the box recently enough... (maybe (more likely) when I added it to my catalogue I translated it for my daft self !!) I also have his Pictogram, 1987. (and his more recent Oak, in the first, flimsy photo version - not sure I like it !) Maybe I will go have a look. Then again, maybe I won't

Enjoy your pictures...... If you can find a way to scan them for on line viewing - no-one else has yet,but I often wonder if a negative scanner.....

I'm also trying to decide whether or not to order the Ironwing tarot. Well...I know I'm going to order it - really I'm just trying to decide whether to wait until next month or not :).

And of course, I'm still waiting on the Margarete Petersen. When it gets here, you'll all know it...you'll be able to hear me shouting for joy regardless of where you are on the planet!!

Les Adorables Tarot. The one courtesy of our very own Blue Fusion.

I can hardly wait to hold it in my hands (but will have to wait til next week atleast) and it could only be rivalled in attention by the expected puppies at my breeders kennel that are about to come out into the world..

i recieved

1 of: The Japanese Art of Reiki : A Practical Guide to Self-Healing
1 of: Reiki The Ultimate Guide, Vol. 2 Learn Reiki Healing with Chakras, plus New Reiki Healing Attunements for All Levels
1 of: Reiki Best Practices : Wonderful Tools of Healing for the First, Second and Third Degree of Reiki

upon which i would say for me, the ultimate guide was the best book ,

this week I recieved

1 of: Mystical Origins of the Tarot : From Ancient Roots to Modern Usage
1 of: The Tarot : History, Symbolism, and Divination

I havent' read mystical origins yet , just a bit of the preface.
i did almost read the tarot history symbolism and diviantion but missed two or three chapters which didnt interest me at the time.

however i ordered these like a month and half ago,, and a month ago , combined them with two more.
1 of: Forgiveness and Jesus: The Meeting Place of 'A Course in Miracles' and Christianity
1 of: Mahatma I and II
1 of: The Power of Twelve : A New Approach to Personal Empowerment
1 of: The Journey That Never Was: A Guide to Hearing God's Voice Regardless of One's Faith, Religion, or Personal Beliefs
1 of: The Disappearance of the Universe: Straight Talk About Illusions, Past Lives, Religion, Sex, Politics, and the Miracles of Forgiveness
1 of: The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself
1 of: Change Your DNA, Change Your Life!
1 of: The Living Christ: Conversations With a Teacher of Love
1 of: One Course, Two Visions: A Comparison of the Teachings of the Circle of Atonement and Ken Wapnick on 'A Course In Miracles'
1 of: Dialogue on Awakening

the reconnection, change your dna, and power of twelve is about dna healing.
mahatma i am not sure what is about,, but i heard good things.

the rest i ordered to help me understand the course in miracles better.
and so they should be here by gee,, next payday eheh.

after which i think i will order that ascension reiki,
and take up ultimate reiki workshop by jeffrey martin.
and after that my job will end most likely .
and i will be on unemployment.
but that is all in the air.

i would like to order the communion with god, friendship with god, new revelations with god, what god wants.
series. by october.

anyhow that is what been going on for me book wise eheh

I finally gave in and ordered the Dreaming in Color deck yesterday, along with a lovely bag to go with it. Bladeraven tipped me off - the deck is on sale for the next few days at the creator's web site. I'm excited - I've been really wanting this deck for a while :).

Had a little B'day fling, by winning a surprisingly cheap, Poet's tarot, on ebay.

gregory
03-07-2005, 19:20
Not that I care that much, seeing that I have the Poet's (and actually don't want Dreaming in Colour (shock horror - but I have to restrain myself somewhere and it IS more of an oracle deck !), but this purchase highlighted yet again something strange about e-bay (yes I KNOW, the whole place is deeply weird, but....)

Quite often I will find things on there that no-one else seems to - and quite often (as now) someone will turn up something that my search strategy didn't. What causes this ???? (Even if one tries JUST Tarot, these things sometimes don't show up. It's not as if I really need E-bay to lead me any furthr astray, but I just wonder; I know, for instance, that my parameters are almost identical with another member's, and she has still turned up decks I didn't and vice versa....
(e.g Gerbear - what string do you use to search ??)

Just won the Tarocchi Guttuso on eBay for only $52, pretty much by accident . . . I logged in and ran my standard search, and there was the Guttuso with less than a minute to go, at a $50 bid. So I read the item description at lightning speed, then put down a bid with only a few seconds remaining . . and won!!

Now, the seller is in Italy . . . so shipping will be a nightmare (either a lot of money, or a little money but a 2 month wait). But still, $52 is not bad for a deck that Tarot Garden lists for $250.

Yippee!!!

My old edition US Games Marseilles arrived from Somerville this afternoon! It's the out of print one, based on the Dodal deck. I just unwrapped it, and haven't had time to study the artwork. But I can already see where some of the elements in the modern restored Marseilles decks came from.

I also see why the old posts here cautioned people not to buy this as their first Marseilles deck. It is, as my mother would say, ugly as homemade sin. But I am thrilled to have it, and am going to run and finish my chores so I can examine the whole deck, card by card.

Have just learned that my Dreaming in Color deck is safely in my parents house in the States. It arrived there Friday, and will soon be making it's way over the Atlantic to me.

Or I hope it will be making it's way to me. I asked my mother to flip through the cards to make sure they were all okay, and she became quite attached to them. She kept saying, "Oh, look at that," and "Oh, this one is even better than the last one," such while flipping through on the phone with me.

At least now I know what to give her for the next gift-giving holiday, assuming she can ever part with my copy of Dreaming in Color. :laugh:

I got this at an excellent price through an auction and it appears to be in good shape and a complete set. While I am waiting (impatiently), I did find a set of the Inner Child Tarot cards at a used bookstore. The outer box has a few dings, but the cards and book are in good shape. I occasionally read for younger children (with their parent or guardian's permission) so this should be good for them. I love the mermaids in the Cups suits as well as the bright colors and large size of the cards.

Postie just arrived with my Avalon Tarot. I've only had the chance to have a quick flip through ... my immediate reaction is one of ambivalence .... a bit too cartoony for me, and being a Mists of Avalon crone, an armour-clad arm rising from the lake with sword in hand seems a tad ... er ... wrong!

I think I need to spend some time with it ... and I can't right now. Ma's 80th Birthday lunch is looming ... Happy Birthday to my Ma, who is also a Mists of Avalon fan and a dark Celtic pixie.

Yay, I look forward to reading your thoughts when it eventually gets in your hands- looks beautiful doesn't it?!

And I can also add another on my 'in the mail' list- just ordered a Victoria Regina deck. I had thought about getting it before but never bothered and I just realised that it is getting harder to get hold of, so thought I would treat myself now.. just in case :)

It was out of mine too - but - er - well, this forum is a dangerous place. }) It might arrive today. I hope I hope I hope.

PS It just arrived wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Not even opened the parcel yet - you are the first to hear ! Watch carefully LOL :) :) :) :)

Also the Star that Never - that is coming to me in Canada along with my Encyclopedia and other goodies from Jeannette. Added value to my holiday, I'm telling you !

Tarot of Dreams was also 'theoretically' out of my price range - nevertheless certain decks just have to be bought!

It arrived yesterday and it's awesome - it leaves everything else, even the Gilded Tarot, standing. Not only that but the CD Rom is fantastic - ten times more engaging than a regular book.

Watch me get this wrong!!!!! La Veritable Tarot de Marseille ... okay I think that except for the lack of an acute over the 'e' in 'veritable', I'm doing okay. I am so excited, and Jeanette is posting it today .... and it is definitely time to get into the zen of waiting.

I've been piddling around with Kris Hadar's classes, but without his deck, I have felt at a disadvantage ... and, in all honesty ... I am as lazy and slow as a snail on valium.

Next ... the Marsella Deluxe ... jmd, that man of evil temptations, brought it to Tarot Cafe ... just superb! ... and the devil has entered my soul. I must have, she cries, tempted beyond her credit limit! ... until next week anyway.... hehehehehe })

I am currently awaiting the arrival of three decks.

1. Sacred Rose
2. Margarete Petersen (english version)
3. Full Moon Dreams Tarot

The last one, Full Moon Dreams Tarot, will be the longest wait. Currently this is an on-line deck/oracle. The deck's creator, Lunaea Weatherstone (www.lunaea.com/tarot/), is pre-selling her "hard copy" version of the deck in order to finance the deck's printing. As of this posting, she has 25 more pre-sales to go before she can afford to print. The images are such that I think it it is more than worth tying up some of my money and being patient. Besides, the other two decks should keep me plenty busy for a while!

"Wisdom Well" by Ivarna Kalilinkova. I am fascinated by anything Jungian (plan to get the "Jungian Tarot" one day!).

Also just won that classic, the "B.O.T.A."!! This one quite puts me in mind of a childhood favorite classic, "My Bookhouse Books", Olive Beupr`e Miller, published 1920. Very typically "Golden Age of Children's Illustration", & so is the deck! Meant for grownups, of course, but the style is very along those lines.

I am bidding on:

- "Le Jaro", a really cool vintage (reprinted) oracle
- The "Archeon Tarot", really superb artwork
- Blank cards to make my own deck, which will be oils on canvas paper gessoed & glued REALLY firmly to the cards (I'll be posting that one! :D )

I know that none of these are exciting or sophisticated, but they were all on sale, and I've actually had my eye on the Tarot Basics set for a while. And although I already have a 1st edition copy of the Elemental tarot set, I went ahead an ordered a second copy, given that they are selling them for under $8.00.

My French-only Grimaud Marseille arrived today. And the thing that I'm finding most striking about it is how much it looks like the pictures in the books. (Ms. Sontag wrote about this sort of thing.)

You know how folks often say to start with the RWS, because that's the deck that is explained and illustrated in most books? Well, in the Marseilles world, the French Grimaud seems to be that deck: the one you see in the books. So the pictures have a familiarity and rightness to them that my bilingual edition didn't have.

In real reading terms, that's meaningless, and in historical study terms, it's a deception. But it's a good feeling, and I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm very pleased with this new arrival!

mythos is mute with desire ... okay, leave out the word 'mute' and add 'mad' ... mythos is mad???? Yep, that about sums it up!

Amazingly enough I'm no longer waiting on any decks in the mail - lots of things arrived yesterday (4 decks in one day!). I am, however, waiting on some fabulous "tarot kozies" that I bought from an eBay seller yesterday. It's hard to explain them if you haven't seen them (I have one already that Smokey sent me in a trade), but they wrap around a deck, so that you don't need a tarot bag for it.

I actually ordered the William Blake Tarot of the Creative Imaginiation last night, but woke up this morning to find a "refund" email from the seller, who had neglected to remove their listing after selling the only copy they had left. Harumph! They had it at a low price, too . . .

There are a few I've been eyeing this morning, though - both the Gaian and the Mary-el look stunning, and of course there's always the Hero's Journey deck. I'm also watching some decks on eBay, as always . . .

Hi Gregory,

I was desparate for money a few months ago and paid $50.00 to have access to lots of survey sites and was promised I could make lots of money etc. I felt like a sucker as soon as I hit the pay button and was kicking myself for being so stupid.

I signed up for as many sites as I could and to be honest have not received much back. Most sites just enter you into a contest which you never win. I have only received Amazon certificates one time, having done multiple surveys for which I received nothing (except being entered into a draw) So not as good as it sounds.

All the best,
Ruby7

The Complete Tarot Kit and an old US Games Marseilles that turned up for cheap on ebay. Only, I was hoping they would arrive in today's mail. Sigh! Something to look forward to tomorrow, I suppose.

The kit will be my first Toth and the first RWS I've had since I started studying Tarot. My focus is really on the Marseilles and its cousins. But I look forward to what the other two traditions will teach me.

Weirdly enough, I did save money while on vacation! But actually, I'm still putting off ordering the Hero's Journey at this point . . . it's just really hard to part with that much money all at once!

I got one on ebay direct from the artist about 18 months ago (I think - roughly), and I'd been waiting AGES before that. It's a great deck, not a reader I think, but interesting for the way it captures a certain period.

Currently I'm not waiting for anything, just focused on trying to get our next deck finished...

Thanks Gerbear :). I saw that you were bidding, too, and didn't really want to bid against you, but this was one I was prepared to fight for! And as it turns out, no one but me was bidding at the very end. I was expecting to have to pay much more than I did . . .

LOL . . . yes, on occasion we bid against one another. I'm probably often bidding against other AT folks, come to think of it, who (like me) have an eBay ID that doesn't match their screen name here. I do make an effort not to bid against you and Gerbear, though . . . although most of the time it isn't an issue. You two both already have most of the decks I'm looking for!

Don't know why your search string didn't catch it . . . that's odd. And I'm not rich!! I'm just in the odd situation of being in my thirties and having no kids, no mortgage, and no car payments right now. And I agree that it would be nice if they'd reprint, but odds are it won't happen. Sigh...

By the way, I got lucky (again) on eBay and am now also awaiting the Flying Hearts tarot :).

*Editted to add that I have just come across this recent interview (www.angelfire.com/nm/spiritualwarrier/index.763.html) with the creator of this deck, Johanna Gargiulo-Sherman which I found quite inspiring and made me want this deck even more

19-08-2005, 04:17
It came yesterday. Giant Rider Waite, Housewives, Gummy Bear, and mini Egyptian.

L-O-V-E them. The gummy bear tarot is the cutest thing ever....and my friend got the Ferret Tarot in the same shipment....they are HI_LAR_I_OUS. We sat around reading the reversed (evil or something) meanings from the Gummy Bear ...just because they are so funny.

We got the Giant Rider Waites because they're big..you can't NOT get them...but I actually enjoy using them. Not all the time granted, but once I got the shuffling with my entire arm down, I think there's something to be said for flipping humungous cards and their impact on you.

The housewives tarot is so styleized I'm obsessed. I need to do more domestic things so that I have more to ask about. I can't stand how much I like them.

And I always love mini things, and I always love egyptian things. I'm already carrying them around with me. I like that my big version has black background, and my mini version is white. One of each, nice balance there.

*is way too happy*

and

Oh ... be still my beating heart La Corte dei Tarocchi So extraordinarily beautiful. Think Bayeux Tapestry with colour. Thick card stock. About 5cms X 14cms, in a natty little package ... like a book cover, tied together with pale lemon ribbons.

I wish the Necromantic was here already (it will be at least a week) - then my guilt would be tempered with pleasure.... the Sugar Mystic should be here today and I have no idea where the Charmed has got to.... but the seller is OK, so it will be the mail again !

I'm waiting for the Dark Sirens Tarot, Demetra Tarot (Style 2), and the Brancaforte Tarot.
Reading your posts is bad for me. I have never heard of half of them... Now I shall have to do some research - again.

BUT - so much for my (alleged) new restraint.

I am now awaiting Magical Forest and Lars Holmsen. I could say it was a celebration for actually HAVING the Black Flamingo in my possession, as well as Charmed (it turned up) and Sugar Mystic…. But it would be an untruth. I just WANTED them. And the Holmsen really was cheap.

PS just have done my research- where DO you find these things grrrrrrrrrrrrr not that I could afford them !

N.B.!
Gerbear lives in the deep Tarot woods and hunts strange game far afield. :D Unwitting travellers should beware the spoor of the Gerbear around dazzling, unfamiliar decks! At this point, I think it's safe to say that the decks have started collecting Gerbear.

What an alarming thought..... At least I have hunted down where one of them came from; I plan to use this info as an amulet to protect my little room at the top of the stairs, on a wild moor where I do MY hunting..... I must watch for the spoor; I hope it is luminous.....

PS seems to me I have seen you out there with your little tarot gun, too.....

LOL!! Perhaps the decks are hunting me! I just keep an eye on the various ebays, and depend on friends to alert me of others. The Brancaforte and Demetra are available in Europe in stores, well, some stores. :) Are you aware that there are two Felicita Tarots on ebay now? Neither seller seems to realize what they have, as the starting price is very, very low.

Ah, all these Folchi decks! I just got the Tarot Storico del Palio di Pistoia in the mail yesterday, and while it is beautiful, I'm glad I didn't pay very much for it. Maybe it's the overly-bright colors, or the stilted human figures, I don't know . . . but for now, one Folchi deck is enough for me :).

At the moment, I'm still waiting for the Necromantic (from ebay), as well as the Tarocco Bologna, and the Jodo-Camoin Marseille (thanks Hedera!). Very soon, the U.S. Games Visconti-Sforza will be on its way to me (thanks Scion!), as will the Margarete Petersen with the wine-colored borders (thanks gregory!).

And I think that's about it . . . I'm trying to resist buying the Tarot of the Magical Forest but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to hold out. I should also be getting some fanning powder in the mail any day now . . . perfect for making those glossy, sticky decks a little easier to handle.

Yes - but I have it, mercifully. I guess I haven't been to some of my European stores lately; I have a few on file too. Maybe not till next month's bill for e-bay comes in....

PS just looking at e-bay - Luca Vietti will know what he has; best of luck :) He's a bright guy !

Tnx Gerbear. I owe you one. But not a deck ! ;)

PPS Interesting. The Felicita with the ridiculous start price has been deleted "because of an error in the listing." (on the other hand all the seller's other items are glass lampshades or something !)

Yay, Jeanette!

Got the minis in the mail today!!! My daughter is so pleased with her Fairy Tarot, and literally squealed when she pulled out the LWB!!! The Fournier TdM mini is soooo mini and cool, that I can't help but give it to her also, as she is so delighted with how teeny tiny it is.(much smaller than the "regularly sized minis") Oh, love them all. :) and am becoming intrigued with this mini Visconti, as it is my first of this genre. (hope genre is the right word :) )

The second is the Sakki-Sakki from Leo62, who has kindly agreed to wait for quite a while for the deck I'm trading it for arrives from America.

Cannot wait! I haven't gotten new decks in a a long while and now I'm getting two! And from such generous people! Yay!

Nothing tarotic, I am surprised to say. Tthough an embarrassing amount of other stuff. :(

I bought a second copy of the Tarot of Transformation.
Every time I look at this deck I get the urge to get my scissors and snip off those borders; many people have said the deck is so "purple", but I am convinced the artwork will look totally different without the borders.
The book does not have pictures of the cards though, and the cards look so untraditional that I can't see from the card which one it is ~ so I want to keep an unsnipped deck to see which card is what.

This deck snipping has something to answer for ~ I also have two copies of the DruidCraft, and I also want a snipped and unsnipped copy of the Swedish Witch :laugh:

The Tarot of Transformation is on my wish list, but I cannot stand the borders. If and when I get it, I'm going to take my scissors out, because I just do not like those big, bulky borders. I'd love to see scans of the borderless cards after you give them a trim. :)

Stunned silence because you really love it? Or because you can't stand it?

I just received the Visconti-Sforza in the mail today and can't take my eyes off it. I love the large cards . . . and the art is just so breathtaking. Can't wait to try a reading with them sometime.

Oh, and by the way, guess what I'm waiting for in the mail - the Blue Rose!!! At long last, it will be mine! :D :D :D :D :D

Soon I will be awaiting the arrival of a number of decks from a private sale, as well, but my money has to get there first before the decks can wing their way to me :).

My Visconti Gold arrived on Monday. It is exactly as advertised: beautiful reproduction of fifteenth century paintings, gold stamped, pips, the whole deal. But, somehow, waiting so hard for it took away the joy when it finally came. :( I am much happier with the Halloween Tarot, which I picked up on a total whim at a local metaphysical bookshop. Maybe I'm just a RWS-person. The lesson I've chosen to take away, however, is Whim Good, Waiting Bad....regardless that Animals Divine, which I don't like, was a whim, and Vargo Gothic, which I love, was worth the wait. :rolleyes:

The Visconti is getting better with familiarity, I should note. Playing with it helps. It leaves sparkly dust in its wake. All the courts' faces still look the same to me, but those pips are gorgeous (and I prepared for them, so interpretation isn't a problem). It's also a kick to match my cards to images on "history of tarot" webpages. But the reality just didn't match up to the anticipation.

Edit: Oh, and no more mail until I'm better aquainted with the decks already here. :P

gregory
02-09-2005, 18:55
Stunned silence because you really love it? Or because you can't stand it?Not an easy one to answer, believe it or not. I had met all the cards on line, but they still come over as a surprise when you meet them in the flesh - not least that they are smaller than I expected, even though I knew what size they were. I don’t think I could say I like them exactly – or maybe I could - but it is not a deck I would ever want to part with. Does that make sense.

Oh, and by the way, guess what I'm waiting for in the mail - the Blue Rose!!! At long last, it will be mine! :D :D :D :D :DYou have heard how cross I am that you beat me to that one by a matter of minutes. Sob.

Roll on Major Tom's to cheer me up.

Yes, one credit card. I'm one of those crazy people who pays off the entire balance every month. So, another credit card wouldn't make a difference -- it's technically my bank account that's getting hit hard. And I would love to get another one of those. ;)

Tarot Garden's site was down when I tried to order Internation Icon. I went through the artist's direct site instead. If I order another II, it will support Tarot Garden. So there's two reasons for separate packages: seeing the deck first, and spreading support. The shipping's a moot point by now.

And this is my 25th post, so I can now get into Trading Post... :D

Well, I had promised myself no new decks for the moment - but when I saw on ebay an auction for the OOP Tarot de Paris photoreproduction (by Grimaud - that's the ancient 17th Century deck, not the modern collage deck, which is also on my wish-list), I was unable to resist. I've been looking for it ever since I saw it at a friend's. I won it for a reasonable price, too. So that's what the postman will bring - soon I hope :D

I also pay mine off every month, believe it or not.

BUT I have this cunning system. Now why I got it - I need a Mastercard as almost nowhere in Croatia seems to take Visa - BUT - you get one with 6 months at 0%, take out as much as you can, put it in savings and put it back at the end of the 6 months - and you have all that lovely interest. Sadly they plan to put a stop to people like me. They call us "rate tarts".....

So - I am waiting for the Soul Mandala, a couple of other good Polish ones, and the Brancaforte. (And, still, Timeless Truth - but I know Canada Post all too well.....)

The Hanson-Roberts tarot.

I've never really looked at this deck - just assumed I wouldn't like it after seeing a few scans.

I've looked at the whole deck though and really like the look of it. The small size is good and the faces on the characters look as if they convey real emotion.

2) Tao Te Ching Cards: Lao Tzu's Classic Taoist Text in 81 Cards with Booklet

3) Tarot of Love by Wulfing Von Rohr (book only) After months of trying to trade this deck, I gave up and ordered the book. I figure it must have something to teach me, and I like the art, just couldn't connect, so the book should help.

4) Herbal Tarot: The Spirit of Herbs by Michael Tierra (book only) I bought a demo deck from my tarot shop which is unfortunately closing, and want the book as I understand it's very good.

5) Ls Voices of the Saints

6) Tarot of the Saints with Cards by Robert M. Place

7) Kaplan Encyclopedia Volume 4 (which is on backorder) I have the first three and they are prizes of my book collection--an immediately valuable reference and interesting to browse for anyone.

The Thunder Bay Press TdM. I'll probably always think of it as my lucky deck: the seller told me she got her eBay items, including these cards, out of Biloxi just before hurricane Katrina hit there.

I need your commiseration-- I bought a Margarete Petersen on eBay, but they sent me "The Transformational Tarot: The 100-Card Deck" instead!!! Kind of the opposite in artwork! Oh, no! I sent the seller a message, but I haven't heard back from her yet. So, to asuage my disappointment, my fingers are creeping, ever so slowly, to the Buy Now! button for La Corte dei Tarocchi . . . I am truly shameless!

Oh, and I'm also breathlessly awaiting my Knapp-Hall from Bean Feasa! (That should be enough, but the collector in me is getting insatiable!)

17-09-2005, 07:06
If that's the Charles Butler black and white one - I don't know what you paid for it but you could be in line to make quite the profit by reselling - one recently went for a healthy sum on e-bay. You might care to hang on to it....! or offer it up for trade. (not to me; I have it - until it showed up on e-bay I had no idea what it was, as I'd bought it for next to nothing ($7 CDN as I recall) in a store that wanted rid of it - I e-mailed the e-bay seller and he filled me in and sent all kinds of useful backgound.) It doesn't even show up in TarotGarden.....!

Nope, Gregory, I don't think it's the one you're talking about. It's "Developed by Shirley Gotthold, Illustrated by Peggy Gotthold, Published by Foolscap Press." It has a beige and white jumping jester on the backs (upside down in relation to the fronts). It has numerological equations on the top of all cards, for example "11=2" on the pages (who are young women, btw, which I like).

It has these extra court cards (for each suit):
15=6 Teacher-Student
16=7 Reformer
17=8 Oracle
18=9 Sage

It has these extra majors:
22=4 The Master
23=5 Galactic Force
24=6 The Androgyne
25=7 Mystical Life
26=8 Transcendent Mind
27=9 Universalized Will

That makes it add up to 100 cards (I guess. I didn't add . . .)

The artwork is a bit naive (not that I could do anywhere near as well!) and pastel.

If I don't hear back from the seller or if she says keep it, I'll send it to you!

Yes, yes, so you are sorry?

I really wanted this deck too!
Thinking about what Tarot deck I would like to have drawn myself, it would be David's Tarot!
So I must get consoled with the available scans of the deck.
I thought about printing them but they have a too low resolution.

But in some way you really helped me saving money :)
I guess next time I should first look at your profile to see what you dont have before bidding.

Just a short note. I too love David's Tarot and was pleased to see that David Chastain had offered the deck for registered owners of the Orphalese Tarot Software. It's in the Decks by Other Artists section so I'm assuming he has given permission to the programmer and there is a link to his web site. I spent all day yesterday fiddling around to make a special background and card back for David's Tarot.

It's a wonderful deck of artwork, I wish a publisher would pick this up, it deserves to be in-print.

Now I just need to resist ordering the Rock Art tarot and the Hudes Tarot, which are the two decks at the tip top of my wish list at the moment.....ARG! Why can't I be excited about the Halloween Tarot and leave it at that? Why do the other decks have to taunt me???

Feels and looks so old, I like this...but the thing that really pushed me into buying it, was the quality of weirdness in the images! Especially the faces of the people, many are just so off center, almost crossed.

Will be back browsing there tonight, maybeI will get the Marsiglia, by il Menghello. I have been eyeing it for a while now...and there is a thread now, in Marseilles section about it, in case anyone wants to look.

1) Italian Frescoes: The Early Renaissance by Roettgen --there are four books in this series--3 on various periods of the Renaissance and a new one not yet released on Giotto. I wanted this because it has the frescoes from the Hall of the Months in Ferrara that are depicted on the Golden Tarot of the Renaissance. VERY expensive book, which my Dad is buying me for Christmas.

2) LS Golden Tarot of Klimt (preorder - birthday money!)

3) Da Vinci Enigma Tarot (preorder - birthday money!)

I've been waiting for a month for a package... all I knew was... it was probably a tarot deck. Two packages were sent at the same time from a freind clearing out her collection, one package arrived two weeks ago and was the Norse Tarot set in it's original packaging, in fantastic condition!!!

Today I checked the mail, found a yellow slip for package pickup and recieved...a beautiful amber beaded velvet/gold tarot bag, tucked inside was the Celtic Dragon Tarot, along with it's book and a dream journal! I love it... I just am having a hard time believing that she could part with either one.

What a great way to begin the changing of seasons!

That's a funny deck isn't it ? I had never seen it before, and now within a week I saw them on ebay, from a marketplace seller and on Tarotgarden as well. I guess someone found a crate of them somewhere :D
It is from around this area (either Dutch or Belgian, not sure) and not expensive here at all.
What caught my eye were (of course) all the animals in the majors, but yes it overall looks different and a bit weird.

I just ordered a copy and hope to welcome it soon :)

Bleuivy, I also just bought something by a marketplace seller and I got an email from amazon that says:

"This message serves as
advance notification of your shipment--most sellers will NOT send a
separate shipment confirmation."

So if you have questions maybe you'd better contact them yourself.

gregory
25-09-2005, 19:52
Too true. I just got one from a marketplace seller the very day I had e-mailed them to say 'where is what you sold me' stuff..... It is really annoying. (if they renege, Somerville has the Rock Art.)

Thinking about the Ironwing.....

bleuivy
25-09-2005, 21:52
Thanks for the advice. I've only used the marketplace a couple of times before. Maybe I got lucky and bought from some of the few sellers that sent email notifications. Hmmm...

Anyway, if the deck doesn't materialize soon at my parents house, I think I may have to email the seller just to make sure she isn't on vacation or something.

Brian Williams' Minchiate. I know I'd said before that I didn't want that deck, as the art didn't really appeal to me.

The Minchiate is quite a quirky deck, and I'm looking forward to learning more about it.

It feels weird not having to look for one anymore...as I have now also seriously overstepped my tarot budget I won't buy anything for a while now, but I thought I might as well go out with a bang :D

Congratulations! :)

I was watching too, but unable to bid....glad you got one at a semi-reasonable price....enjoy!

This evening I am hitting the shop and getting the Druidcraft. I have loved the artwork in this deck for ages, and now that I have sold a great deal of decks, and am re-creating my collectiong as more of a "working" collection, rather than just for the sake of collecting (does that make any sense?) I am really excited about getting the Druidcraft. I have heard a lot about the variety of colours in the back, some flaws, etc., but ever since I started purchasing oriental rugs for my house, I am falling in love with handmade things, with slight imperfections, which give certain things far more character than the perfect object. Druidcraft is just waiting for me!!

Just ordered the Rune Vision Cards :). They are by the same folks who did the Tarot of the Old Path and the Tarot of the Northern Shadows.

I was unknowingly "enabled" by Flidais - I saw the scans she'd posted in the thread where she's offering one-card readings from the deck, and I was immediately hooked!

Tarot of the Journey to the Orient with some money I got as a gift at a luncheon from people in the community and former co-workers.

Nobody seems to like this deck, but I loved the art and when I downloaded it from Orphalese for my computer I knew I'd like to have the "real" deck. As with many Lo Scarabeo decks, I like that they are different and present a challenge to use. They really do publish THE most interesting decks.

I also ordered "The Selected Poetry of Robinson Jeffers" with my gift money. Great poet--I shall pick one of his poems to go with my new deck for initial bonding and study!

I ordered A.Castelli's Tarot Art Nouveau. The cards look really beautiful on the scans. I currently own the Estensi deck, but I'm paranoid about the gildings. Now I'll hopefully have a deck to abuse without guilt. Some reviews say that it's hard to read, but I'll see it myself in a week or two. (They said the same about Estensi too). Ooh. I feel soo rebellious! A beginner that I am, maybe I should just get a Waite/Thoth/Marseilles?

I ordered the Animals Divine a few weeks ago and cancelled the order because I wasn't sure about it, but after loading the deck in Orphalese and examining it and working with it (even at schlocky low resolution), I have succumbed and re-ordered it from Amazon. I loved Lisa Hunt's book on her Shapeshifter Tarot so I think this one will be good too.

Also ordered "Mystical Origins of the Tarot" by Paul Huson as recommended by Marion, Rusty Neon, and others in the tarot book forum.

My birthday money is gone, I just have to wait for these things to start rolling in.

I am saving up for the Totem Tarot by David Works and Traci Darin--should be ready to go by Christmas. I LOVE their work!!! (Can hardly wait for the Portal minors to be finished.)

I know there is a worry about copyright infringement with Orphalese, but if these cards hadn't been posted, I would still be vacillating about the deck. And they were posted in low resolution so I figure it's good advertising and helpful to people before they purchase.

I was keen on the way Lisa mixed goddesses and animals and insects--I might be one of the few but I find insects and reptiles interesting. I used to know a photographer who did THE most beautiful, detailed pictures of insects and his own bearded dragon, and I've always loved scientific illustrations of insects. The Animals Divine seems to have a great mix of "animals," and I find such decks irresistible.

01-10-2005, 04:35

La-luna, as long as you still have a little bit of money left when you are done, you can never overbuy tarot decks - at least that's my theory. :cool2:

I ended up buying one more deck today - the Forest Folklore. I was buying something else from Amazon (Halloween Town is finally out on DVD!) and needed just $12 more on my order to qualify for free shipping . . . and the Forest Folklore happened to be just over $12, and well, what can I say. I'm weak! When a tarot deck calls to me, I must have it!

*sigh* I gotta stop playing on Ebay }) Wow, Emeraldgirl, you've got to tell me more about the Indira Hindu Tarot! I Googled for it and there were no references at all. I suppose it must be OOP.

I went on a "learn chakras" buying spree and as well as getting a bunch of stuff written by Andoea Judith - including the Chakra Balancing Kit with chakra cards - I gave in to a fascination with the Triple Goddess Tarot which I thought I had outlived a few months ago. Triple Goddess is a Majors only deck with four extra alchemy cards and seven chakra cards. Anodea's Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self just came today from Chapters.ca, and the rest, including Triple Goddess, should be coming in a couple of weeks from Amazon.ca.

After using Carol Herzer's eight chakra cards for meditation using a screensaver over the past week, I'm wishing I had ordered her Chakra Arcana Tarot (http://www.soul-guidance.com/tarotdecks/page_5.htm#Chakra%20Mandala) instead of Triple Goddess, but chances are good I would want Triple Goddess eventually anyway, if only for completeness.

Thank you Gregory. At least I found out now, but I wish publishers wouldn't call something a Tarot deck when it isn't! :PI don't think one can always blame publishers..... some artists are determined their decks are tarot and will argue the point even though any of us here could tell them different. Double :P !!!!!

but chances are good I would want Triple Goddess eventually anyway, if only for completeness.
Yup. That's why I bought mine :grin:

Other than that, trying so hard to read this and the Taroholics threads and stay sober and calm and restrained. (But I really want that LS 78 Doors deck, it appeals a lot!)I will let you know when mine arrives..... :P

I haven't the nerve to post everything I am waiting for, after saying I was going to restrain myself, but the Pamela's Portraits Postcards and the Schubert Deutsches Original are worth mentioning in particular.

I picked up two used Oracle decks today. They were rather impulse purchases. I don't run into them often in person, and cost was around what I would often have paid for many vendors' eBay shipping and handling charges alone.

* "Rune Cards" (Partridge / Linsell)
http://tarotpassages.com/rune1.htm
Very sturdy, thick matte-finish laminated cards. Could use them as square-shaped coasters. :)


* "The I Ching Pack" (Anthony Clark and Richard Gill): Clark is artist for the Magickal Tarot and for the minor arcana of the Servants of the Light Tarot. Since I have those other two decks, it would have been a 'shame' not to get this one too. Clark is very versatile: the three decks are three vastly different art styles.

I got the Tarot of the Spirit d/b set from weaver. Wow. This deck looks lovely, and the book looks fascinating.

I also, finally, recieved the Rock Art Tarot. It looks lovely and very interesting. I can tell I'm going to need to buy the book.

Also, earlier today I bought Tarot to Go at Borders, so now I have a mini Hanson-Roberts for my purse.

Ooooh, I cannot wait to start playing with my new goodies! :D
The only problem is I can't until after I've finished writing a chapter of my dissertation. :( They are sitting on my desk as inspiration to get me typing. })

Getting very very concerned about the status of the three decks I'd ordered in the last week of September. Two were coming to Canada from the US - from California and from Florida (from cirom, no less! Bouncing in the chair and clapping of hands) and one from the UK. Unless Customs has decided to hit me hard this time and hold up three decks, I may have some concerns. Hope the crazy neighbour lady hasn't been stealing our mail ...

Of course, the first time I ordered a used deck from somewhere in the States, customs opened the deck,charged me $15, and LOST the Ten of Pentacles!! I was in shock! I was vehemently assured by the very reputable seller that she had determined all of her used decks have all cards, and she in fact did write to US Games and had them send a replacement card. But I've been wary ever since.

But I digress. I am still awaiting the Tarot of Dreams, Belgian (Bacchus) Tarot, Sakki-Sakki Tarot and the Brian Williams Minchiate which was to have shipped out today. When I have some assurance that I am receiving packages (ie, I receive at least one) I will be scooting over to Alida to place an order for one little gem that has just come back in stock :)

Full speed ahead and damn the torpedos!

Just returned from Alida, and La Corte dei Tarocchi is on its way to me! Been dreaming of this one for a while, but the price in the North American market is a bit steep for me. Even with the conversion rate it was cheaper to wait for Alida to get it back in stock (and I'm sure Argeo is breathing a sigh of relief I'm no longer emailing her about it!).

Wow . . . awoke this morning to find that I'd unexpectedly won the Glow in the Dark tarot on eBay, even though my max bid was super-low, and had been placed hours before the auction ended. :)

Also currently awaiting Luis Royo's Black tarot and Ralph Blum's Rune Cards, and am still awaiting the Tarocchi di Matteo Maria Boiardo as well as some more "tarot kozies."

. . . Forest Folklore arrived yesterday and is BEAUTIFUL, and I get to pick up the Hero's Journey set at the post office today after work . . . can hardly wait!

Updated: Hooray! The Hero's Journey is here, and it is fantastic. Amazing in every way. And the tarot kozies arrived today, too!

I couldn't help it! I ordered the Gummy Bear Tarot this morning. I thought after recieving the Rock Art, Tarot of the Spirit and mini Hanson-Roberts yesterday, I would be done buying decks for a while, but noooo. I was seduced by its cuteness, its simplicity and it's price.

So now I am waiting on the Gummy Bear Tarot. It should take a while though, as I've ordered it through Borders and it will arrive at my local store. (I have gift cards, you see :).)

Rejoice and be hopeful, Gregory! All is not lost! I contacted the eBay seller on one of mine, and it turns out it had fallen through the cracks and he hadn't yet sent it!! I should not have been pleased, but I was too relieved to see my deck was not lost in postal limbo to be properly annoyed and I accepted his profuse apologies.

And another one of my decks arrived today! Goody! Unfortunately, I'm not playing with a full deck (lol, story of my life... but I did receive TWO Queens of Pentacles! How ironic!) and I've directed a query to the publisher. I won't state which deck or give any details until I hear back, to give the small publisher a fair break.

So ... maybe not quite a happy ending for me (still waiting on one that should have been here by now), but a hopeful sign, Gregory. Someday your decks will come :)

I have been sitting on the other end of the same sort of situation. My very first trade on this site with a member in Ireland, has yet to receive her package. Due to shipping costs, I foolishly sent the deck and book via surface mail. Never again! My trade partner has been just great WRT the long wait but believe me, it has been horrible for me. I'll not rest easy until I know she has received her things and that everything is still in good shape!

Currently, I am waiting for the Light and Shadows Tarot, i Tarocchi Visconti Sforza, Soprafino, and the Full Moon Dreams Tarot. (The FMD deck HAS been a long wait...I pre-ordered it last May!) Pre-orders include the Fairytale, Golden Tarot of Klimt and the Fantastic Menagerie. In a nutshell, life is good! :grin:

Well, as I said in a previous reply to Gregory, there is hope! One deck arrived yesterday (albeit missing a couple of cards - just waiting to hear back from the publisher), one was sent a few days later than I'd originally thought so should be here any day, and one was somehow never sent by a profusely apologetic eBay seller who should have put it in the mail long hence but has now - so he says. And one was only mailed Tuesday. So I'm vastly reassured, and just waiting for the rest of my babies to arrive before I embark on a new spree! I have a new list waiting: 2 from Amazon, 1 from an artist directly, dozens more still in my dreams :)

Surface mail will take a while, Weaver, but rest easy, it will get there sooner or later!

QofPI HOPE so - but sadly the seller and I have been in touch and it was mailed, airmail, 3 weeks ago now..... I have had several packages from the US posted way later than that which HAVE shown up already - we've both posted it as a problem with e-bay, to protect ourselves in case either of us has to claim....

But on a brighter note I had LOADS of decks arrive today (and the Enigma yesterday) - I MAY finally have hit the 1000 mark - stay tuned, as I'm busy all evening and though I can look, won't have time to catalogue etc.....

Well my Triple Goddess just showed up yesterday. The jury's still out on whether I'll be able to read with her. It is interesting that just last Monday my creativity teacher was observing how the weakness of some feminist work is that it seems to conveniently ignore the existence of one half of the human race. And indeed this deck is somewhat spookily set in a world where all those useless, inconvenient and badly behaved men have been completely obliterated. Even the Lovers card has become the "Open Heart" because she has no visible lover - except perhaps herself! In this brave new world in which men have been eradicated, wouldn't the Lover have another woman as a visible object of affection? But this group of goddesses seems strangely isolationist and unrelational.

However it is early days yet, and maybe I'll have cause to eat my words... :)

Argh!

Canada Post is becoming the bane of my existence. I received an email from Ciro last night - my Tarot of Dreams arrived up here, but the post office "corrected" the street number to a completely different one, where it was delivered and opened - *including the Tarot of Dreams box* - retaped up and returned marked "unknown". My husband and I have received bunches of things delivered here with no problems in the six months we've lived at this address.

Why, why, WHY???

Ciro is resending the package today - to my landlady's house, who is also a dear friend - and is also sending the label for the first package so I can fight it out with the post office.

So not only do I have to wait another week or more for my baby to arrive, I have a lot of uncertainty about what could happen to any other babies I might buy. :(

Tradera, a kind of e-bay-ish site where you get the full adress and phonedetails of the other person when an auction is won and closed.
Most of the decks there have been new and unopened (more pricy) and the "odd ones out" have been scarce, but I even saw a copy of the African Tarot there last week. Went over my allowed budget though so none of that for me..

To get there, just visit www.tradera.se
The whole site is in swedish but registration can be done in english and there are translations for the different listings available on the site just by the click of a mouse. Sellers also state if they are willing to sell worldwide or outside of the country.

Poor Ciro! How does he deal with postal services around the world? I hope they're all not as inefficient as here!

They're here. My decks...my babies are here. :D

I have the Archeon Tarot and Madame Endora's Fortune Telling decks here in my hands. FINALLY. ANDDDD my bookstore called and said my Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling deck is ready for pick up. So I will get that deck tomorrow.

I'm so happy I'm giddy. The Madame Endora's cards are BEAUTIFUL. And they are not stiff like new decks can be so they shuffle wonderful even on the very first shuffle. There is no need to "break in" the deck. I love the back image of the cards. Very nice. The cards remind me of a fortune teller at a Shakespearean carnival.

The Archeon deck has a very urban occult energy feel it. The energy is raw, slightly gritty, the deck reminds me of a movie or novel about looking for ancient occult secrets in the middle of a city. These cards are perfect for the purpose I bought them. To help me discern the energy of my city. City energy is a raw, unique, eclectic and sometimes unpredictable energy and I wanted a deck to help me discern the energy when necessary. Yep, this is the deck I'll carry with me.

My Brian Williams Minchiate just arrived, and I gave the postman an earful about the fiasco with my Tarot of Dreams that was misdelivered and returned. He said he thought the house was unoccupied! We rent a very old small farmhouse that's not in great shape; with the blinds drawn against the sunlight and nobody home, he apparently decided nobody lived there.

At least he knows I'm here now, and once I receive the package from Ciro Canada Post is going to get a more official earful.

Confession - I love this thread. It's so much fun, reading about the decks everyone is getting. :D

Another confession - in addition to a few other decks that still haven't arrived, I'm now awaiting a second copy of the Celtic Shaman's Pack. It was going so cheaply in a buy-it-now auction that I could not pass it up. And it will be nice to have a spare; it's one of my favorite oracle decks. :)

I must admit when I got this deck (free) I was not impressed with the images, but I am impressed with method for doing a reading that Caitlin explained at the conference. It would be interesting to see other decks use the back of the cards for such a purpose.

Currently, I am awaiting Caitlin's other deck in the mail: Hallowquest.

Ooo, La Corte dei Tarocchi! I recently got it. It is so beautiful, and I got a lovely, gentle new deck reading with it, too. I know you will enjoy it.

I broke down and ordered Kabbalah Cards and Language of Flowers playing cards directly from USGames. The Kabbalah Cards are by the same artist as the Old Path and look lovely. And I couldn't resist the playing cards. They have a flower and a one-word meaning of the flower on each card. I bought them seeing only the limited number of pictures on the USGames site. I hope they're worth it!

I ordered the tarot of prague from amazon about four weeks ago! I got it yesterday! It took less time than estimated. :-) It is lovely! One more for my small collection!
I'm enjoying reading the book! It is making me understanding more deeply the meanings of Tarot cards (mostly some major arcana). A different perspective is allowing me to perceive the meaning of some cards in a different way.

Good purchase!!

SunChariot, the decks are great for readings and the images are beautiful. I mentioned in another post that I particularly like(d) the Klimt and the 78 Doors. But all are great collectors' and reading decks.

The Gaian and The Da Vinci Enigma Tarots .Both should be on their way to me. I am soooo thrilled . . . ! and can hardly wait.

I received both of these decks yesterday, but apart from counting the cards and looking thoroughly at them, I haven't yet done any serious reading(s) with either.

However, I noticed that the Gaian deck had 2 Gaia, The World cards. I wonder if this is normal :confused:. The images of these 22 cards are so breathtaking that they may as well be framed instead.

Well, having groused about the long wait for the Full Moon Dreams deck to appear at my doorstep on this thread, it seemed only right that I return here properly shamefaced to say that my deck HAS arrived and that it WAS very much worth the wait. I feel very badly that I complained. (My husband has mentioned on more than on occasion that I am not very good when it comes to delayed gratification! :()

For those not familiar with this deck, it was only those of us who pre-ordered FMD that faced such a long waiting period. Lunaea, the deck's creator, needed a certain number of pre-orders in order to finance the project.

At any rate, for those of you waiting for your deck to arrive, it will doubtless arrive soon and when it does I suspect you will very much like what you see!

Yippee! My I 22 Arcani Fiabeschi arrived looking as cute as a button - mind you, I have seen many a button which is not cute, but is, in fact, down right ugly ... but this deck is definitely of the cute button type ... wonder where that saying came from?

It's the beginning of the new month and have new money to spend and my decks want new friends to keep them company
so i ordered :

- Le Tarot du Roy Nissanka
- Tarot Maddonni
- Le Tarot des Pauvres

i would say that's a very reasonable list to start the month :D

Well, technically the Victoria Regina deck and book set, which is OOP, is in the mail to my "local" Tarot shop rather than to me. Four more brand new copies are available through Lobelia's Lair (http://www.lobeliaslair.com/), located 2-1/2 hours drive from here. I have posted details in the Advertisement Forum.

Gregory, it looks like Leila has improved her shipping - I received my Tarot of Timeless Truth in the mail today. It arrived in a padded envelope with a flattened cardboard box (very like the ones US Games use) and four individual piles of cards, each shrink-wrapped. That way they were sent letter post and arrived in ... oh, about a week. Very pleased!

Oops! forgot to add the Da Vinci Enigma, and my copy of Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism arrived last week, and my New orleans Vooddoo tarot arrived Monday. Mythos, because you enjoy Jung I think you will find Meditations interesting, and certainly great bedtime reading ;). I think the Unknown Author's weakness is his dislike of Eastern Religions, which is unfortunate because if he had treated them seriously this book would be even more useful. You might be interested to check out my notes on the course ("Tarot Holiday") Lynn and I took recently, based on the book.

All this talk (a few posts above) got me all aglow about the Glow in the Dark deck which I don't own. From reading a review, I find that the procedure for englowing is quite intricate and the glowing results are quite short-lived (like a candle in the wind), so my 'need' for the said deck has subsided.

Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!! I finally got my Druidcraft today. First impressions are, for one, I can't believe how big these cards are. These and my Baroque Bohemian Cats are about the same size. And it just seems like the cards are really personable. The expressions of the characters and how they are portrayed. Really adds life to the deck.

I recently got my Ancient Minchiate Etruria and I suprised how much I like it. At least at the moment, it seems to have become my prime reading deck. It really like the extra dimension given by having the astrological signs, although its taking a bit of getting used to. I would be interested to know how it works out for you.

I had forever been infatuated by this deck, but only recently I aquired the Minchiate Tarot by Brian Williams which I thought was pleasantly plentiful, and thus wanted to get the original - per se - version of this deck, which was really the main reason why I got the BW's deck in the first place.

I do like decks that have that extra dimension of astrlogical signs, as I find them really helpful in reading and understanding the cards. I also like the extra cards that are included in both decks.

They are in fact a real bonus-steal :laugh: not to mention the gorgeous artwork of this original version, although I am not yet sure if I would make it my primary reading deck. Only time will tell . . . !

Sophie-David
16-11-2005, 14:21
Oh yes, I think I am doomed to buy the Brian Williams deck now too, if only because the set contains the only available English language book on the Minchiate. Yes, the AME artwork is gorgeous, but the deck has a really fun feel to it too.

I just received my Victoria Regina two days ago. I haven't had a chance to actually open the deck, but what I have seen of the book is goosebumpish!

While I had a bit of money left I have just ordered the Chakra Arcana Medium Format from the artist, Carol Herzer (http://www.soul-guidance.com/tarotdecks/page_5.htm). It is expensive, but the cards are quite beautiful, and I have been using the screensaver (http://www.soul-guidance.com/screensavers/exefiles/Chakras.exe) based on the chakra cards as a meditation tool. They do come in their own bag, which is nice. This deck should complete my chakra based resources. I put together an arrangement of silk flowers to represent the chakra colours while I was out, I think this will be a good daily focal point for continuing chakra work.

20-11-2005, 03:05
Oh, you enabler you. :) That set is now coming to me as well. I really like those cards! Well we can both blame Wildchilde for introducing me to them! })

Carol Herzer designed the Majors by assigning two chakras to each one, with the Fool containing them all. I am intrigued to see how well this system actually works. In any event, if it doesn't work the Majors will still be very usable.

Anodea Judith has a set of seven chakra cards in her Chakra Balancing Kit which I have used as placeholders for chakra spreads with standard Tarot decks, so in a sense any Tarot can become a chakra Tarot. But apart from Carol Herzer's very similar Chakra Mandala and The Triple Goddess Tarot, I would be interested to know if there are any other custom chakra decks available.

OK, I just tried the free online reading (http://www.soul-guidance.com/tarotdecks/readings.htm#Three%20Card%20Chakra%20Reading) with the Chakra Arcana - I don't normally do or trust online computer readings - and here it is:
Sex chakra - The Star - Crown Chakra

At its best sex energy is a channel for spirit, the life force, creativity. Are your life force energies are blocked by fears that there will not be enough, that you will not get what you need? Love will again flow in a healthy way in your life and you will be able to share love if spirit is allowed to enter. Creative energy is inspired by spirit. Love requires freedom, freedom from fear, from being afraid there will not be enough, or that one will not be able to handle what life brings. Emotional energies and the life force must be allowed to flow so give back some of what has been given, generate abundance by generosity of spirit. This reading is absolutely right on for this week, and month so far! This bodes very well for the usefulness of the deck itself! :)

BEST of luck - I just cancelled my order with amazon as the delivery date got later by the minute - when it said it would be Christmas Eve I decided enough was enough (the 1st date they gave was Oct 5th....!) there are HEAPS on the magic realist site though..... it SAYS there are 150 kits or 25 decks..... available for immediate delivery.....! I hope this is true....
Hmmm....when I looked yesterday on fairytaletarot.com, it said they were sold out...

A friend of mine has had the same experience with Amazon. I actually ordered it from an independent supplier via the marketplace, so I'm hoping it'll arrive much quicker...

I've had the same issue ... when I first placed the order I was given an estimate of Dec 13 2005 - Jan 4 2006. Big window, huh? Contacted Amazon.ca to add the Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot to my order, and it is now upped to Feb 16 2006 - May 25 2006. I really hope that's an excessively conservative guess! That's 4 decks in Amazon limbo now ...

I rarely order directly from Amazon any more, they are sooo slow to deliver! They were decent a few years ago; I wonder what happened. I still order from independent sellers on their website though.

A new laptop for SO – and I am scared now. I saw it in a flier for Dell that came with yesterday’s paper. I dialled the number on it and it was unobtainable – so I went to their (?) website, got the number there, and ordered by phone.

Of course, it WAS Saturday afternoon – but the guy said I would get a confirmatory e-mail. I haven’t yet – but it is Sunday…. But then I remembered about the current mobile phone scam and got worried…. I will monitor e-mail tomorrow – and if there’s nothing find a way to get in touch with something I can be SURE is Dell…. If not I’ll get on to the credit card…. :(

I work in the security department for another computer sales call centre, Gregory, and I can appreciate your concerns! Smart to get the # from the website directly ... if you went to dell.co.uk and got their number from the top of the page you should have no real concerns, but I know that most orders in our centre don't get processed on the weekends. If you have a Hotmail or Yahoo account or something similar, make sure it hasn't been outsorted into Junk Mail. But I wouldn't panic until Monday if you don't get confirmation.

But anyway ... back to the topic at hand ...

I cancelled the baba prague products from my order with Amazon, and ordered them from Prague directly. So now Amazon will deliver my Nigel Jackson and my Intuitive by the end of the month for free, and while I have to pay for my Fairytale and Baroque Bohemian Cats (kit for the first, just deck for the second), I will get them a lot faster!

Shame on me ... only a month before Christmas ... but Santa will be treating hubby well too, and hey - aren't we supposed to have scary MasterCard bills in January? :(

In spam it ain't - though I admit I'd not looked - thanks. What worries me is that if you type in the web address (it didn't strike me at the time...) you get to a different address entirely - and that was where I got the phone no from !

Well we can both blame Wildchilde for introducing me to them!

Sigh...tis true, tis true. I am an evil enabler I tell you. :smoker: In my defense...I only introduced David to my all time favorite Wish List deck...I did not force him to drool uncontrollably and purchase it before even I can!!!

I fell in love with the Chakra Aracana Deck years ago, but still have not saved up enough to purchase it! LOL I suppose it has something to do with eBay....(evil eBay!!!)...

Recently I received from eBay sellers another of my top wishlist decks: Tarot of the Spirit, and also the Jung Tarot. Unfortunately with the latter I did not realize that the book is extremely expensive and hard to find so I'm a little lost with what to do with that deck at the moment!

On top of all this...I now have another new deck coming thanks to House of Tarot, as they have asked me to do a review for them. The deck I chose is The New Age Tarot, and after researching this one online I am very excited to work with it!! (bad HoT, baaaaaddddd)

BTW, Soul Guidance will throw in a copy of the Pictogram Tarot (http://www.soul-guidance.com/tarotdecks/picto.htm) free if you request it when ordering.

Hi S-David,
This set is a bargain and although I am not usually one to buy 2 copies of the same deck, this was an exception, and I was not disappointed.

Actually I like the size of this mini deck more than that of the regular HR one . The mini one is perfect to handle, and is larger than the other mini decks on the market, particularly the LS ones.

Thanks.They do say they are in the Tyne and Wear area (you are also in the north, I see !!). I am close to there, if we can find a street address.... Also the phone number they give is a mobile - have you tried texting ? Can get a response when voice mail doesn't (it works on my daughter !)
If you paid with a card (or paypal) you can always do a chargeback.....

Oh PS I see she says she's in TABI.... but her name doesn't come up as an endorsed reader there.....

It could, of course, have been her last Ananda, Marion ! But if you want one that much, Milfoil, they are available from amazon.de for 20 euros used, 25 new. And German amazon is delivering WAY faster than UK just now !

Well, I said I was waiting for the invoice for my Jacques Vieville repro deck ... holy cow! I would have been just as well off ordering from Alida. My initial reaction was "Are they buying it a bus ticket??" - paid $15 for the deck, fine. $20 for the shipping is NOT. It's going from New Jersey to Nova Scotia - have paid less for shipping of hardcover books from the UK on eBay! And this is a small deck ... grr. I was charged a lot less on the book and deck sets coming from anywhere in the US.

Have asked the seller for an explanation of the charge before I pay, but of course I'll have to pay it :(

That'll teach me to buy from new sellers without asking for shipping costs first ... I really hope I like the deck.

I was out-bid on ebay for a deck I sort of wanted. So I overcompensated by going elsewhere and ordering the LS Visconti set, Volume II of Kaplan's Encyclopedia, and Gail Fairfield's Everyday Tarot. It would have been a lot cheaper to have bid more and won my second-hand deck. But I'm looking forward to my consloation prizes.

Well, the eBay seller and I have reached an agreement regarding the shipping cost of the Vieville and it should be on its way to me soon! Still cost more than I think a used deck of Tarot cards warrants, but also still less than buying new from Alida or R. Somerville and shipping over from Europe.

My consolation prizes came today. The LS gold Visconti is as gorgeous as everybody says it is. I'm going to love it. I thoroughly expect to get lost for hours in the Kaplan encyclopedia. This was my first volume, and it's Volume II, because I'm such a Marseilles queen. But now I'm hungry for Volume I as well, and maybe more. The Fairfield and the book for the Visconti set are in my stack of tarot books to read cover to cover. There's still one book between my current reading and those, however.

Have to stop ordering for a bit; don't want stuff to get all tangled up in Christmas mail. Hi Marion

Did you get the Chakra Arcana? Mine just came in yesterday, in the medium format. Absolutely gorgeous! This is the third time in a row of receiving some of the most wonderful cards in my collection, starting with the Ancient Minchiate Etruria, then the Victoria Regina Tarot, and now the Chakra Arcana, each one succeeding the previous in knock-em-dead glorious beauty!

I also appreciated the loving care with which the artist, Carol Herzer, packed the deck, and she even used the subtle "These aren't the droids you're looking for" technique on Customs, labeling the package "pictures, cloth bag" so that they came in for free.

Marion, I was curious when you receive(d) the deck, did you find a large extra charkra card enclosed, signed by the the artist on the back? Was it also the heart chakra like mine? I found it very inspiring that after all the focused work I have put into this chakra lately, to great benefit and joy, (and some of the effort was in meditation using Carol's free chakra screensaver) I would just happen to receive this bonus card.

So I'm one happy energy worker! ;) - David

Yes, like you mine came just yesterday.

It was meticulously packed, I was so impressed. The cards were in perfect shape.

Yes, they are just lovely. Currently laid out on my coffee table for me to admire, which I did for an hour this afternoon. So subtle, so many nuances. Fabulous.

No, there was a large extra Fool card, unsigned. Probably a comment by the artist. :D Also a small hand done card of the 3 of pentacles, which must be from another deck, also unsigned. I am pretty sure she didn't sign anything I got. But the cards are remarkable, so different from any deck that I have seen.

In the Chakra Arcana he is integrating all of the energies.

This makes that extra card very special then, it would suggest that Carol reads her customers when she is enclosing it. I will certainly treasure this, and will be sure to write to thank her.

Yes, I also received three sample cards, one additional Lovers card from the same deck - in the same medium format but with a plain back - and two from other decks.

Creepy Coincidences!!!

This was one of the decks I bought in the early days of researching my own tarot project. Over the last few weeks I've 'rediscovered' it and have started to read with it again on a regular basis.

It's a truly gorgeous deck! It's all done in ink and watercolour and just seems to have a strange twilight feel to it that I love. The illustrated minors don't follow the Rider Pattern, rather they give pictorial scenes to the keywords from the Thoth pip cards. The Courts are Princess, Prince, Queen and King.

The Colours and the Artwork have a real Wow factor. Stunning back design too. I think you'll love this one when it arrives!

It is a pity (though not for her) that the nice lady selling her collection takes paypal.... see several posts above - four "new" decks coming up............ !

Gregory, with the s*** they're putting you through you deserve every oop, every rare deck you can get your mits on :)

Maybe we should make a petition or something to ban paypal and creditcardpayments for nice decks, so that you actually physically have to go to your bank to make the payment. Then the bankemployee can stare really hard at you, and make you feel all guilty before you can buy anything. Then again: damn it, I deserve those decks ;)

Gregory, you ARE a bad influence!

I've just returned from R. Somerville's website - 3 decks and 45 pounds later, ack! - and am now awaiting:

- Golden Tarot of Klimt
- Golden Tarot of the Renaissance
- Minchiate Fiorentine (the Solleone version in the wooden box - even Tarot Garden doesn't offer it at present!)

(Hums to self and bounces on desk chair)

About the last one, Jeannette had emailed me about it quite some time ago, when I was looking for the Il Meneghello version; I've now been bitten by the Minchiate bug, and this will be my 3rd Minchiate - and the Etruria is still out there!

I did mention you by name - well first name, anyway, I'm sure he knows you well! Do you work on commission? :)

AND bidding on 2 decks on eBay. I have no self-restraint on rainy days ...

In that my husband is still gainfully unemployed, I have been forced to be a good girl. Sigh...

Still, I do have a waning credit with Tarot Garden. Using it, wonderful Jeannette is sending me a copy of the Large Swiss Thoth deck she now has in stock. (It is currently an off-line item on the TG site, but I think Jeannette has plans to post it with the other boutique decks shortly.)

This is a deck I have wanted for quite some time, so I am a very happy camper! (Also, it will be nice to have a treat arrive at my door!) :)

Do you work on commission? :)I did offer once :P but he wasn't having any.... he did give me a freebie once when someone from here who was desperate for something that he'd had to return to another seller as it was misdescribed (and Roddy will never do that !) went there and spent - well, a lot, I gather..... Before he left Edinburgh he always gave me a discount, but can't afford to any more :( Oh yes - he knows me by my first name. Even has my Visa number filed that way :}) (er - you do mean my REAL first name ??? maybe I better e-mail him.... I did tell him once I was also known as gregory, but...)

The timing's never right for these auctions ... the ones I anxiously wait for the results on always end while I'm at work (my bosses are notoriously particular about watching eBay on company time, fuddy-duddies) or while I'm sleeping. So holding my breath even for short periods doesn't really pay :)

Ooooo....all of you are such a bad influence!! I was reading your posts about eBay auctions . . . was reminded that I haven't visited eBay lately . . . went there and just ended up buying a copy of the Odilon Redon!

But it is beautiful and a very limited edition . . . and wasn't terribly expensive . . .

No, I haven't bought the Kandinsky, Klee, or Malevich so far, although I've seen them come up quite often on eBay. They just don't look very much like tarot decks to me, while somehow the Odilon does. Glad to hear that it isn't laminated!

True - they are less so than some. Then again, knowing the artist helps with the money side.... (seriously, I got them at a discount in return for past favours rendered !)

Baba does ship to the States and my book orders with them have arrived quite quickly. (Generally in under 2 week's time.)

Tarot Garden might be another viable option to explore. I know their shipment is well on its way to them. Everything I've ordered from TG has been shipped promptly via Priority Mail.

Hooray, HearthCricket! I am so happy for you! (I wonder which one of us will have our deck first?!)

What on earth, do you suppose, is going on at Amazon? Did they really intentionally send you a damaged product that you had to pay for shipping to return?! (I can only hope you were reimbursed for the return shipping!) My last book order from them, an easily available title, took over a month for them to send out. Another part of that same order would have taken longer but I cancelled it because of the delays. I wonder if the company undergoing some sort of restructuring?

The Kernow is on its way via a trade.

And I am now baffled by amazon. I got the incomplete order last week and complained - as you do. So they got back to me and said they would set up a new order for the missing item separately. Today in my e-mail I have a note that the second order has dispatched AND a note that the first (it would be complete if it were right) order has "now" dispatched (I never got a note the first time, mind...) - am I going to end up with 2 of everything ? I am so mad at them now that I shall keep it all to use for trade if I do !!!! })

I don't know what is going on over there. One minute a book in my cart says it will be ready in 24 hours, two minutes later it says it will be 5-8 days. Then a minute later it says 24 hours, again. The price of the DVD's keep increasing and decreasing, minute by minute. What is up with that? Also when I pick out a deck via AT and use the Amazon link and put it in my cart, if I check my cart later, none of those items show up. And yes, they have now sent me two damaged paperbacks in case I want them. They charge me and stick a note on them saying if I want it fine, if not, here are the directions on how to send it back-I pay for the shipping costs. Needless to say, I now order from Borders or B&N and just pick the item up at the store. If there is anything wrong with it, I can send it back. Luckily my husband works 2 buildings down from a B&N and can pick things up on his way home. Grrr..

Let me know when you get your Fairytale tarot! I am sooo excited!

If they say they've been shipped you're probably OK. It was when I heard nothing and checked my account status that I found the ever increasing deliay - "by 24th December" at least count.... But if they DARED charge me for return postage on a damaged item, I would claim back on my credit card ! How appalling !

Oh you enablers ! Maybe I should not have looked at that deck ;) I am glad I did though. I have a chakra balancing set (book + cd's) that I like a lot, but the cards that came with it are not very inspiring imo, and the Chakra Arcana looks lovely.

I actually like the cards, although they aren't in the same league as Carol's set. I'm now working through Anodea Judith's definitive book Eastern Body, Western Mind using the chakra pairs from the Chakra Arcana. I find that the combination of the two media is very stimulating, in fact the Chakra Arcana works like a visual key to the book. Carol's interpretation of the Majors is quite original, it really makes you think, such as the Devil (Illusion) as the combination of Throat and Brow chakras - suggesting the Devil is all a head game.

Yes, I also got the medium format, I don't think you'll regret it. I wonder if Marion got that size too - I don't think you said, Marion?

I'm awaiting The Harry Potter Tarot (movie edition), The Fairytale Tarot Kit, Tarot Symbolism Book, The Minute Deck and some lovely Dreamstones from Chronata. I'm also waiting for one of the first 10 Midnight Masquerade Tarots but that isn't ready to ship yet.

Summerdream:)

The received my package from Chronata. The Minute Deck is so gorgeous. The quality is wonderful and it's hard to believe that she only spent less than 5 minutes on each card. The set of Dreamstones she made are beautiful too. I got the Harry Potter Tarot in the mail today too. It is more of a collector's deck to me since I am a big fan of Harry Potter but it won't be one I will be able to use to read with.

Now I'm anxious to receive the Fairytale Set, Tarot Symbolism Book and the Midnight Masquerade :)

HearthCricket, you are going to be up to your ears in decks by New Year's Eve at this rate! :D

I am STILL waiting (more and more impatiently) for the Odilon Redon - it only had to travel from Canada - I was expecting it by last week. I still believe it will get here by Christmas, though.

The Templar and Glastonbury came yesterday - wow! I like them both better than I thought I would. The Glastonbury is subtle . . . very soft, somehow. And the Templar is pure eye-candy. Gorgeous colors and detail in every card.

I know! I am actually slowing down, believe it or not, because I have the majority of decks I want, now. I am sort of moving from the mainstream decks by USG and LS and more into the privately published or more unique decks, which means more money, and less decks. But I am still super picky. There are lots of decks I won't get because I know I won't use them. Right now I am really, really happy with what I have and have been getting, lately. Now I just need to find the time to bond with them! I think the Fairytale will stay on my nightstand, tonight! :D

...as small or budgeted bids on ebay got overturned, but that's okay. I promised myself by the end of year, if the book based on Robert DeAngelis' Lo Scarabeo Universal Tarot comes out, then I'm going to get the pricey pretty paper edition of the cards....Alidastore.com gave me a bit of a discount and I ordered the Universal Tarot book separately.

It turns out--crossing my fingers and toes--a first edition deck that someone ended up paying triple digits for on E-Bay--I found a similar first edition was also available for half that cost on abebooks.com...and it had everything the E-Bay auction was advertising, perhaps even better...since I got it for 'half' the E-Bay auction price, I'm so glad the other buyer won the auction!

So I wound up spending less and getting more.

I'm happy--we'll see if the abebooks listing is as good as it gets! It was listed in another language, so people probably missed it. (I've been learning some European languages to read what I wanted from texts...this hobby encourages this sort of thing!)

Well, I received a package from the eBay seller who sold me the Vieville... or so I thought. Instead, she sent the LS Minchiate Etruria, obviously used. AND the postage on the envelope shows she charged me $10 more than it actually cost. I've sent her an email asking for an explanation and voicing my unhappiness, but I have a feeling this will be a disputable matter with eBay.

... although I am pretty pleased to have the Etruria! But not $28US on a used deck readily available worth of pleased.

Somewhat to my surprise, I won an eBay auction yesterday. I only bid the starting price ($20US) and no one else bid so I got a notice saying I had won. srkusgs auction for collectible playing cards, four different sets. I really bid for the 1923 Hersey Chocolate set which I was coveting since seeing a wonderful display of chocolate promotional memorablia a few months ago.
They have not sent me the shipping charges yet so I guess it won't get shipped until I pay up. :)

Still fighting with the eBay seller that was to have sold me the Vieville deck. First she took ages to reply to my first email, then when I sent a second one she denied getting the first one, then she swore up and down that it was the Vieville she had sent me and suggested I do some research on it (I guess I'm not capable of telling the difference between a woodblock Tarot deck and an engraved Minchiate deck, or of differentiating between original and reproduction decks - she made a point of telling me I had not bid on the original deck! - or of reading titles on boxes), then she finally said ok, I can send this one back and she will send me "another" Vieville deck. Hmph.

I don't feel like I trust this seller at all ... do I let this deck out of my hands before I get the deck I paid for, and hope she'll hold up her end of the bargain? Right now I have a deck I paid far too much for, but it's better than having paid far too much and not having anything to show for it. Also, while the city and state on the return address on the package are the same as that listed in the eBay description, the name (first and last) are not. I think I got screwed.

The moral of my story? Don't buy from eBayers with very low feedback.

gregory
19-12-2005, 04:40
Who the heck was it (so we are warned) (I am wondering about the resurfacing of one in particular....)

You could always buy a Vieville from Somerville (who WILL sell you the right deck - Cat Ref: 11081, £10.00 +postage which is reasonable) and flog whatever you got on e-bay. With the right description, you might even get more than you paid.

There are also 2 on e-bay now - one from Kaplan....

I don't think that you should put any more trust in this person since she has proven herself to be untrustworthy. You could end up with even less than you have now (nothing). Keep the deck, give her the feedback she deserves (bad) and get the Vieville elsewhere. I don't think you will get a Vieville from this person. Too bad some people really are jerks.

All the best,

I've already looked at the Vieville from R. Somerville - I think it will very well be part of my next order from him. I'm also interested in the Liber T and a couple others from him. But I'll wait until his first parcel arrives: Klimt, Estensi and the Solleone Minchiate!

(BTW, I was very impressed with his service! Very polite emails; I made a mistake in entering my credit card info on the order forms, he sent me an email right away stating what the problem was and offering a couple of solutions to get him the correct info, then follow-ups to let me know he had the info received, and to inform me of the date the parcel shipped, AND a physical invoice and credit card receipt in the mail! I will definitely be going back to him again, thank you for sending me his way, Gregory!)

As for the Minchiate Etruria I did receive, I am thinking of keeping it. If I do decide to unload it, I will try to do so via trade here. But as it was a part of my (eventual) wish list, I think I'll hang on to it.

About the eBay seller, I was not going to name any names from some sense of fairness to a person who is not (at least I HOPE not!) on AT to defend herself, but I will tell you via PM.

And thank you, too, Ruby7, for your opinion, which happens to coincide with mine at the moment!

Oh well. I guess this balances out the absolutely stellar eBay transaction I had with an Italian seller for a Visconti deck! Really fast transaction (I bid a week later on it than on the Vieville, and received it from Italy in 9 days) and the communication was great, even though he teased me about my cruddy attempts at translating messages into Italian!

Gregory-Why torture yourself? Just cancel with Amazon and order from straight from Prague. I live across the pond and mine came in 10 days. I have 2 Fairytales, an extra BBC and a gorgeous carpet bag! I don't care what the postage might cost-so, I give up a deck to get another at a more decent time frame. It was well worth it. I get to read from mine every day. Amazon has been such a mess, lately, that I have stopped ordering everything from them. I don't know what is going on, but I am fed up with them.

gregory
20-12-2005, 08:05
You misunderstand me shweetart - I did that some time ago (and the Magical Menagerie for good measure) and it arrived from Karen by return - and I LOVE it, you're right. :love: :love: (and a great book, just the thing for when you're off sick - I love fairytales.)

My post was just to warn others - yet again. Someone in the US on another forum has just had her due date moved to APRIL - and she too has cancelled and ordered direct !

Rhiamon
20-12-2005, 12:55
it's weird, I am hearing so many horror stories about Amazon, but I ordered 3 decks and they got shipped the next day...one already arrived. is it just because you all are ordering stuff that is on pre-order?

gregory
20-12-2005, 21:00
Whe I ordered the Fairytale it was in stock (Karen says and so did the amazon page) and amazon also said "shipping in 24 hours". After 6 weeks, during which the date got later and later and finally said "by Christmas Eve" I cancelled, ordered from Karen and got it 2 days later. She is beside herself - Amazon both sides of the pond have copies and aren't sending them out.

I have learned from my mistakes and never preorder fom amazon any more - but STILL the stuff I order takes ages these days....

Amazon - in my experience, they're either sublime or ridiculous, nothing in between. Either the thing arrives within 2 days or it takes weeks....
Amen to that! I've had the same experience with them . . . things either arrive right away, or take forever! I get the sense that they've been overloaded with more orders than they could handle this holiday season. I placed several orders with them around the beginning of December, and all were supposed to arrive well before the 25th. Some of the items have already arrived, but about half have had their "anticipated arrival" dates pushed back to anywhere between the 23rd and the 30th. So frustrating!!!

At least I'm not waiting on any tarot decks from Amazon at the moment. All the decks I've ordered this month have arrived now with only a couple of exceptions. I finally sent an email to the eBay seller who was supposed to have sent the Odilon Redon Noir tarot out to me weeks ago . . . he admitted that he had forgotten (!!!!) but said that the deck should arrive today. When and if it gets here, assuming it does come before the 25th, I'm wrapping it up and putting it under the tree! :)

Maybe I should tell him he is getting bad press just now.... ! One he was sending me he got a rocket from his wife who found it on a bookshelf (I couldn't really argue as they were giving it me for services rendered.....!) But it is worth the wait; you'll love it !

Annabelle
21-12-2005, 09:48
You are so right, gregory . . . the Odilon Redon was indeed worth the wait!! It was waiting for me when I got home from work today :). Hadn't planned on opening it before Christmas, but when I saw the lovely tin that it came in, I had to have a peek. It's marvelous! . . . but is now safely wrapped up under the tree.

I've bought from the same seller before and always had wonderful service . . . I think he really did simply forget this time around - but he made up for it by sending it by some sort of lightning-speed method (after I reminded him of my purchase ;)).

Now the only thing I'm still waiting for is the Scapini Vetrate . . . and the Christmas money from my mom and grandparents, which I intend to use to buy the Full Moon Dreams tarot :D.

21-12-2005, 10:23
I have to agree with the general consensus regarding Amazon (.ca in my case): they have 2 speeds, reverse speed and light speed! When I had ordered the Fairytale from them my delivery date crept from end of November to anywhere from January to May. When I cancelled and ordered from Prague directly, my remaining 2 decks from that order arrived three days later!

I've noticed several posts on the Odilon, and seen it on eBay. What is it like? It's a major-only deck, right?

My fight with an eBay seller regarding the Vieville deck (or lack thereof) has reached what I hope is an end. She had told me that if I send back the deck I received, she'd send me her "other" Vieville deck. I asked her to confirm her return shipping info, and sure enough, the name is different from that on her Paypal account, but matches the name on the customs form on the package. I replied and told her I was going to cut my losses, hang onto what I have rather than send it back and run the risk of having nothing to show for it. Well, not in so many words, but I did tell her I would keep what I have.

Her reply? "The deck you got instead wasn't sheaper then the deck you wanted and I'm sure you know that that is why your keeping that deck. Which is fine but please don't act as though you lost out." First admission that she knew she didn't really send me the Vieville. And the Vieville isn't necessarily cheaper. Grr ...

Whatever. Screw it. I got a mass-produced deck in a squished box from an unethical seller. And paid much more than I would have to add it to my shopping cart at Chapters ... I can't even be bothered to reply to the seller anymore. I just get angrier.

QofPYes it is - and strange. Black and white, mercifully not laminated in the way some of his others have been, the work is taken from those of the original artist - well chosen, I think. Sort of a bit scary. If you've seen it on e-bay - what more can one say ? Do you want scans ? Here's a couple....

Oops, the link I sent you is for the particular page that the Tarot de Paris was on ... the only one I was really interested in. At the very bottom is a button that says BACK in English and that will bring you to an index of sorts. Anything there that has either aqua font or pictures is a link to a new batch.

And the currency is in Yen (Yens?). According to xe.com, my deck cost me around $48 Canadian with shipping included (that was ... I forget ... around 4600 Yen. I did not see how to figure out shipping cost, in a reply email Satoshi sent me the total cost.

The Windmill Tarot is a Japanese tarot, very much based on the RWS actually. So no windmills on these cards. If I understood it correctly, it was published by the Windmill company in Japan. I got a link from pictures on a Japanese site if you are interested.

It is very different from the TDMs and really interesting:
you can find funny faces on the cups;
There are a lot of differents coins too, a real coin collection.
I like it very much.
Sure, as most of the photo reproductions of older decks the coloring looks very confusing (overlapping and so on) and sometimes it even completely hides the drawings.
These pictures on Trionfi give an idea on how the deck could be:

I am still waiting for the Pictorial Key to the Tarot, I bought it off Ebay before Christmas and the seller is giving me the run around, she was sick etc. etc. I am beginning wonder if this is the first time I am gonna be burnt on Ebay.... she had 100% postive feedback rating, so I am still living in hope - oh well there goes my £2.49. !!

Gilded Tarot, So pretty, but i'm nervous now because someone said something about christian overtones. i'm not christian, but i'm not against it either. Does it really matter?

Thanks
Love *& Light, Janey xx

It does not matter, as long as you like it! I have the Golden Tarot which is super Christian based and I love it.

Love *& Light, Janey xxI may be a bit thick but I hadn't noticed it being particularly Christian. Then again, I wouldn't have been looking....! I too have the Golden, and the Christian overtones there don't trouble me at all; I love it and have even read with it. Nothing matters if a deck speaks to you.

After the postal holiday Monday, I came home from a very bad day at work to find a whopping SEVEN decks came in the mail yesterday! Poor hubby just looks at me and shakes his head.

From R. Somerville ... Golden Tarot of Klimt, Golden Tarot of the Renaissance and Minchiate Fiorentine by Solleone (what a funny little deck!)

From Chapters.ca ... Liber T, Ancient Tarot of Lombardy and Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg

And from Japan, TAROT DE PARIS!!!!!!!!!! It's here! Super fast shipping, as it was only mailed on Boxing Day! Impeccable condition, still factory sealed (although the box has come unglued on one of the long ends; I understand this is common from the box design and for this deck), and what wonderful quality!

Also received a PM from Chronata that my Minute Tarot is in the mail :)

What a lovely surprise and quite a pick-me-up!

I also gave myself a huge Christmas treat - and now Arnell Ando has notified me that my handmade copy of the Hero's Journey is in the mail...

*sighs with total bliss*


I am getting one too! Mine must be next because she said it would be ready around the 9th! I am so looking forward to this. It is the most I ever spent on a deck, but I have longed for it for so long, and I love collage decks.

I can't wait for her Transformational to come out this year!

Wow, it must have been a good "Tarot Day". I got the Amy Brown Oracle and Fairytale Tarot for my store yesterday. Was it something in the stars? I bet you are thrilled with all those amazing decks! I am sure it was a late night for you staying up and perusing them! What fun.

First, darn you enablers you!!!!!

Still waiting, and they were sent in the order listed but the postal service has it ways:

Naibi di Giovanni Vacchetta (Alida store)
Midnight Masquerade
Full Moon Dreams

I looked at the Hero's Journey and I am sooo happy that it does not look like a deck that I would want (sighs in relief). Also sort of stunned by the price of Robert Place's art re-print of The Alchemical. Glad I have the mass market copy. :( but....

Hi folks,

This thread is very, very long and is taking an age to load so MeeWah and I have decided to close it and open up a nice, new thread for 2006.
