The Unhappy Hierophant

The Hierophant card represents the traditional, orthodox teachings of religion considered suitable for the masses. She is the ruling power of organized religion. (NSFW) I don’t think there’s an unhappier card in the Tarot deck than the Hierophant. There are more frightening and probably saddening cards to receive in a reading, the Tower and […]

The Stickers are Here!

Hey look! We’ve got stickers! They arrived today from PSPrint! They look REALLY good, so you should buy one! That’s right, our first merch is up and online in our new shop! It’s not much yet, but I’ll be continuing to add merchandise throughout the year and hopefully before too long we’ll have a deck […]

The Temporal Rulers – A Spectrum of Power

I’ve always had a very superficial understanding of cards 2, 3, 4 and 5, in the tarot, otherwise known as the temporal rulers compised of the High Priestess (aka Papess), the Empress, the Emperor and the Hierophan (or Pope).

My Vision for the Chibi Tarot

Chibi Chibi Con!

Thanks to the last minute notice from a new friend of mine, I was able to attend the Chibi Chibi Con this year. It’s without a doubt the closest con to my house, a scant few miles up the road to Evergreen State University. So last Saturday I packed up the family and we drove […]

New Tarot Books!
