And anyway, werenīt you wallowing in Marseilles less than two weeks ago? Bit fickle...
Well, it's a wee bit more complex than that (isn't it always?). I'm going to be taking jmd's course starting in March, and I knew that I'd need a break before that. So I signed on for an IDS with Shining Woman (which didn't last), and then I switched to Liber T/Thoth. Now, perhaps I was nudged in that direction by something I read here - yes, now that I think about it, I was - but I do have a handful of Thoth-derived decks: Thoth, Liber T, Cosmic, Light and Shadow (in order of perceived 'purity' to that Thoth tradition, lol) - and I did have a lovely large-sized beautifully-printed Thoth that I sold a while back.

Now, while Thoth will always be available, I keep hearing that the newer printing (out of Germany?) is *much* worse. So if I don't buy the OOP version now, it will only be much more expensive in the future!

(I'm enabling myself here, guys...)

Ouch! Stop that! I've got enough of a world of hurt going on right now - my thumb started triggering (due to trying to shuffle my Vieville into submission a while back), and I finally saw an MD yesterday.

She said: "you can have a steriod shot or you can have surgery".



I'm now on a 2-week sick leave, and with my thumb in a splint (after opting for the shot) I CAN'T SHUFFLE THE WAY I ALWAYS HAVE!!!

So... I really, really, really, need to find that large Thoth!! You know - retail therapy!

2) It follows it's own system. Do you really want to learn another system? More to the point, do you want to learn this system? No! And here's why:

3) The book. Rather than the usual explanations and descriptions of symbols on the card etc., this book is written in the form of stories/monologues/rants of the different characters. You think you'll like this unique take? Think again! It will patronise you, confuse you, and worse of all, you'll be none the wiser about how to read with the damn thing afterwards!

4) You only want it, because it's oop. Go on admit it.
Oh Elvenstar, all those points are perfect, including no. 4. You're right of course.

Thank you!

And it isn't a Tarot. Poppy says so. She never intended it to be a Tarot. So there.
(Any help?)
Yes, that does help Starshower. Thank you!

Too late.
I just ordered the large green box Thoth. I hear that it's as good as the previous blue box AGM.

Heavens help me....

I am one mouse click away from the Dal Negro Mitelli. Should I be dissuaded?

Did you have to do that HERE, after you asked for recommendations THERE ?????

But the very fact that you have come to this thread suggests that YES, you don't really need it. It is large. Don't you have small hands ? As I said to someone else, who did not take my advice - buy the larger hands FIRST, than think about large cards.... if you have any cash left....
