Between 1912 and 1922, the great German Romantic poet, Rainer Maria Rilke, wrote a series of ten poems dedicated to the one he loved. The Duino Elegies is a romantic, evocative, heartfelt, and deeply inspiring collection. The poems are emotionally powerful and beautifully written. And, for six months in the late 1990s, this book of poems was my oracle. While I have been a tarot master for thirty-five years, I long ago decided I wanted to know as much as possible about the whole world of the arcane, the unknown. Thus began my quest to become familiar with, if not understand, the major oracles in use today. So, I have studied the ancient science of astrology for forty years. I have been ...

If you have been following me online, or even if you just read the introduction to the guidebook of the Mermaid Tarot, you will know I have had complicated feelings towards creating this deck. Our relationship was rocky from the start, yet somehow over the three years from idea to fully created deck, we have come together in a beautiful and respectful way. The story of this deck is pretty much the story of a lot of ideas that seemed stupid, ridiculous, and even a little embarrassing at first. I mean, come on, mermaids and me, that's just insane. But this idea, this vision, the voice of this deck stalked me. It literally threw itself in my path on more than one occasion in the form of ...
