After trying on seven – seven! – different occasions to film this video, I finally did it! Had to wait for my cat to fall asleep first though (she was diving at the cards before and yanking my background fabric in her teeth!)

I am using the Osho Zen Tarot for this one…

Have a good week and thanks for watching 🙂

Prisma Visions Tarot & Light Visions Tarot Deck Review

The Light Visions Tarot and it’s colorful sister deck the Prisma Visions Tarot are created by James R. Eads. Both decks are gorgeous, high quality decks with some very unique features.

Likes:

Very high quality card stock

Borderless Minor Arcana! Yes!

Deck comes in a wonderful, sturdy box

Minor Arcana suits form a long picture when you lay them out (more on this!)

One extra special card that is unique to the deck

Dislikes:

Tricky to shuffle because of thick card stock and glossy finish

Borders on Major Arcana can make the Majors feel a bit small

You know you’ve got a high quality deck as soon as you hold the Prisma Visions Tarot box in your hands. It’s beautiful and sturdy and when you crack it open you see the mystical looking card backs of the deck nestled inside…

I was lucky enough to receive the Prisma Visions Tarot as a gift from one of my students almost a year ago. As soon as I opened the box and looked through the deck I thought “this deck is mine and it’s only for me!” which is funny because I don’t usually get possessive with my decks.

I have found this deck to be a welcome challenge in my reading practice. The cards aren’t always easy to decipher but they beg to be contemplated and pondered. This has helped me get new ideas and insights that can only come when you sit with a card for some time.

Prisma Visions Tarot is gorgeous. The Cards are vibrant, richly colored and pulsate with energy and movement. And I LOVE the fact that the minors don’t have borders.

One of my favorite things about this deck is this: each suit when laid out in order (Ace to King) forms one long, continuous picture. See my video above for a demonstration. This allows you to really study the minors in a whole new way as you get to see the story of each suit unfolding and see each card in a greater context.

Prisma Visions Tarot

Is there anything NOT to love about Prisma Visions Tarot? I have two minor gripes…

I don’t love the fact that the Majors have borders. It make the cards seem smaller than they actually are although I guess it’s easier to tell them apart from the Minors.

The other thing I don’t like is that this deck is a bit cumbersome to shuffle. The cards are normal size but their thick, good quality card stock makes them un-bendy and their glossy finish makes them slippery. If you have big strong hands this shouldn’t be an issue but I’m a weakling in this department.

Light Visions Tarot

I was recently sent the Light Visions Tarot (for review) and it’s been really fun working with both decks and comparing and contrasting them.

The Light Visions Tarot was actually the original, colorless deck. The Prisma Visions Tarot is basically the colorful version of that deck, with a few minor differences.

Light Visions Tarot

After working with the Light Visions deck for a week or so, I still cannot decide which deck I like best.

These decks each have a slightly different energy to them – the Prisma Visions is bright and alive while the Light Visions beams with…uh, light and takes on an etherial, other dimensionesque feel.

I have to say that I appreciate the simplicity of the Light Visions Tarot. Sure, lots of vibrant color is great and all but sometimes your just like enough with all these mind cluttering hues, I need a break!

And that’s when a color-free deck like the Light Visions Tarot can feel like a sigh of relief, like a cool, dark basement during a heat wave or the soul-nourishing quiet of your own home after your friend with three kids has left.

Sometimes your mind needs kind of that space, that kind of calm, to access the intuitive realm and this is what the Light Visions accomplishes so beautifully. Fuck color! You don’t need it.

Just kidding. I love a big, bright, colorful deck but I am starting to really appreciate the black and white decks too. Although the Light Visions isn’t really black and white, it’s more dark purply and sepia/cream.

Should you buy this deck?

Light Visions Tarot

I wouldn’t recommend this as your first deck. If you’re brand new to Tarot get something easy like the Rider Waite or Robin Wood. Then get this one when you want something meatier!

Readers with a bit of experience will appreciate this deck most and anyone looking for a bit of a challenge. Deck collectors will want this one in their collection for sure.

This deck also makes a fantastic gift for the Tarot lover in your life 🙂 I say this because of the exceptionally beautiful box that the deck comes in!

Quiz: Which Tarot Deck Should You Buy?

Have you ever stared at the massive array of Tarot decks available online and thought “fuck. Which one do I get?”

There are thousands of Tarot decks out there and it feels like new ones are popping up every second. While this massive amount of choice is exciting, it’s also incredibly confusing and overwhelming.

Which Tarot deck is for you? Which one should you buy?

There needs to be a Tinder app just for Tarot decks! But since there isn’t one, I bring you the next best thing….my signature Daily Tarot Girl quiz that matches your personality with an appropriate Tarot deck.

You’re welcome! Now take the quiz…

1. You’re sick with the flu and forced to stay at home all week. You use this time by…

A) Powering through a box of salted caramels while watching all five Twilight movies back to back – without shame.

B) Languishing in bed and telling friends and family that you “might not make it”. Oh, and also watching lots of grisly true crime shows.

C) Finally testing out all the herbal medicines that you spent all Summer making.

D) Sitting on the couch, glued to your laptop or smartphone, catching up on email.

 

2. Which vacation appeals to you the most?

A) A sailboating trip where you get to skinny dip with dolphins and have giggly, day-drunk picnics on deserted islands.

B) A tour of haunted hot-spots in London, with plenty of museum pit stops.

C) Staying in a remote eco-village where you sleep in a spherical treehouse with a composting toilet. Orgyatic dance parties happen every evening in the main lodge!

D) An all-inclusive in Mexico or a Caribbean cruise. Fuck history and all that dumb shit, you just wanna go someplace sunny where nothings expected of you.

3. In the kitchen, you love to make…

A) Glorious cherry pies, lemon cupcakes with copious buttercream frosting and magnificent chocolate layer cakes!

B) Takeout. You’ve spent most of your life developing your intellect, but your cooking skills? Not so much!

C) Something vegan, fermented and KALE.

D) You rarely have time to dick around in the kitchen but when you do it’s tuna casserole, chicken noodle soup and lasagna – you know, comfort food!

 

4. Your favorite thing about the internet is…

A) Kitten videos! Grumpy Cat memes! Green juice recipes! Etsy! Pinterest! OMG soooo much!

B) Snark blogs. Twitter fights (observing them, not participating). And writing scathing reviews on Amazon.

C) How you can share information about gardening and stuff and learn really cool things like how to make kombucha and how to cure yeast infections with garlic yogurt.

D) Google maps

 

5. Most of your sex fantasies take place…

A) In a mythical land of your own imagination where everyone lives like primitive hunter gatherers except with electricity and showers. Everything’s organic and everyone’s super hot and buff.

B) In a library

C) Outside in nature! Also, see option A above.

D) In bed

 

6. Your #1 pet peeve is…

A) People that need scientific proof to believe in something. God those people suck!

B) Trailers for “feel-good” movies like fluffy romantic comedies or movies with kids in them. Yuck!

I’m 100% vegan. Eggs benny doesn’t count.

C) Fair weather vegans

D) Facebook. It’s a frivolous time suck of epic proportions – a voyeuristic black hole of boring baby photos, pointless opinions and self congratulatory crapolla.

 

7. Your favorite reading material consists of…

A) Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones and some pretty weird mermaid smut that you secretly downloaded to your Kindle.

B) The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The DaVinci Code and anything by Agatha Christie. Murder mysteries, true crime and Victorian ghost stories are right up your alley.

C) How-to books on wildcrafting, living off the land and anarchistic utopian manifestos get you all fired up!

D) The manual that came with your new Bissell Stick Vacuum.

 

8. Your perfect day would be spent…

A) Cuddling kittens and puppies and eating strawberry waffles while Daniel Craig (circa 2008) massages your feet.

B) Perusing antique bookstores, sipping Turkish coffee and running into your favorite old University prof who just so happens to remember you (and your above average intellect) after all these years.

C) Marching passionately in a political protest, meeting a sexy fellow protestor and heading back to your caravan (or tiny-house) for a “sensual experience” involving organic hemp oil, Nag Champa incense and that overpriced yoga bolster you never use…until now.

D) Getting your taxes done early, not hitting any red lights on your way to work and coming home to discover the new IKEA catalogue waiting for you in your mailbox!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, now tally up your score!

 

Mostly A’s – Mystical Daydreamer

You’re a happy soul who loves to daydream and roll around in your imagination. Some say you’re spacey but it’s because you’re too busy traversing other worlds to be fully present in this bland one. And you need a Tarot deck that reflects that!

Decks with fairies, mermaids and dragons will get your heart pounding while new agey decks with sun rays, chakras and angel wings might strike a chord, too. You  prefer uplifting decks over dark, broody ones and you’re magically drawn to animal decks.

Here are some suggestions:

crystal-visions-tarot-jennifer-galasso

Crystal Visions Tarot 

Shadowscapes Tarot

Hezicos Tarot

Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot by Dame Darcy (This one can be tricky to find)

Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue

Osho Zen Tarot

The Animal Wisdom Tarot

Mystical Cats Tarot

Paulina Tarot

Mostly B’s – Intellectual Cranky Pants

You’re overly brainy, pessimistic and moody and you love to take a stroll on the dark side. You never turn down a challenge! You don’t want “easy” and you don’t want “fluff” – you want a deck that’s confusing (to idiots), darkly intriguing and something you can really sink your teeth into.

Thoth Tarot Deck by Aleister Crowley

Game of Thrones Tarot by Liz Dean and Craig Coss

Prisma Visions Tarot

Tarot de Marseilles by Jodorowsky

The Vampire Tarot by Robert Place

Tarot of the Sweet Twilight

Secret Tarot

 

Mostly C’s – Rebel Hippy

You’re a rebel, an eccentric, a brave trail blazer who lives outside the system and grows her own kale. You love getting out for long nature hikes (or so you say), doing full moon rituals and protesting Monsanto. You’re interested in decks that emphasize nature, animals, feminine power and Wicca or Druidry.

Wild Unknown Tarot

Druidcraft Tarot

Wildwood Tarot

Everyday Witch Tarot

Motherpeace Tarot

Tarot of the Pagan Cats

 

Mostly D’s – No-nonsense Nelly

You’re a practical, no-nonsense individual and you don’t have time for all the bullshit that seems to inundate everyone these days. You know what you want and where you’re going. No one’s ever accused you of being “too exciting” but who cares? You need a deck that brings you the goods straight up without any fip-fop fappery.

Since I know you’ve got somewhere to be right now, I’ll make this quick…

The Universal Waite Tarot Deck

Morgan-Greer Tarot

Robin Wood Tarot

Anna K Tarot

2018 Tarot Forecast Reading!

My favorite part of New Years is doing my annual Tarot forecast for the year ahead!

Although I don’t really see my reading as a “forecast” in the sense that it’s predictive – it’s more a glimpse into the themes, opportunities, challenges and energies of the year ahead and how we can make the most of it.

Remember nothing is set in stone – things change and shift as we move through space and time.

Please forgive my intermittent coughing throughout this video. I’m still recovering from pneumonia and I’m not 100% better just yet. If I was good at editing videos I would have just edited out all those coughs, but instead you’re getting the raw, uncensored, true to life version that’s full of unsexy hacking! 😉

Another thing I love to do as the New Year approaches is add up all the numbers in the year until I get just one number.

So 2018 would be 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11

and then 1 + 1 = 2

Since 2018 boils down to 2, I took a close look at all the 2 cards in the Tarot. I think all those “2” cards give us some extra insights into the themes of 2018.

The High Priestess

Hanson-Roberts Tarot

This card is all about the inner realms and aspects of life that are secret and hidden.

I think many of us will be exploring things like intuition, psychic skills, dreams and our power to heal in a much deeper way in 2018.

Secrets will also be explored. Secrets can be delicious and precious or they can be destructive and toxic. What secrets will you keep and which will you reveal? What role do secrets play in your life? How do they effect you?

 

2 of Pentacles

crystal visions tarot

Crystal Visions Tarot

This card is all about juggling multiple things and going through the busy times with a certain grace. You can’t always control what life throws at you but you do get to choose how you deal with things.

Another way to think of this is that you are a dancer of life and while you may not have a say in what music is played, you get to decide how to dance to that music.

 

2 of Swords

Paulina Tarot

Decisions, decisions! We will have to make some tough decisions this year. Whenever we go through one door, other doors close – but we can’t just waffle and deliberate forever.

We won’t always have all the info we need to make an informed decision, forcing us to rely on our instincts even if that feels uncomfortable.

This card shows that we will become skilled in decision making in 2018…because we will get lots of practice!

 

2 of Cups

hanson roberts two of cups

Hanson Roberts Tarot

This card is all about finding common ground with another person and bonding over shared values.

2018 will be the year where we make important alliances and meet others with similar passions – this could be romantic or platonic.

2 of Wands

shadowscapes tarot

Shadowscapes Tarot

This is where we take a pause to contemplate where we want to put our energy next.

We have a chance to re-evaluate what we’ve been doing so far and whether or not we want to continue or make changes.

This is a card of soul searching and inner contemplation.

 

 

So there you have it! 2018 in a nutshell! I hope you’ve found this post/video helpful and I wish you the best of luck as we move into the New Year!

Penny for your thoughts…

I’d love to hear your take on 2018 – what are your hopes and dreams for the year ahead? Where will you be putting your energy and attention? Feel free to share in the comments below 🙂
