Here's my walkthrough video of the Magical Child Oracle cards. You can order the set for a limited time here in my shop.
To All Believers. This phrase was on the dedication page of the 1914 fairy tale, The Book of Friendly Giants, by Eunice Fuller, illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith (PCS of the RWS Tarot). I first saw it on one of the title cards from the Hanson-Roberts Tarot. (See images below.)
It reminds me to be open to the mystery, magic, and all the little miracles in life.
This inspired me to add the sweet phrase to the Magical Child Oracle title card. There is a touch of "Pixie" (PCS) in this deck, including a card using one of her drawings.
That is the magic of art. When there is pollen enough to inspire cross-pollination across a hundred years. 🌻
The Magical Child Oracle is now available to pre-order!
Limited pre-orders available. I do not plan much of an overrun, so if you are interested in this set, please reserve your copy today.
Buy one set in my shop or you can purchase two sets! Gift season is upon us!
If all goes smoothly, I am anticipating shipping Magical Child Oracle pre-orders by early December, hopefully arriving (within the USA) well in time before the holidays!
(Wholesale also available: contact me to request a pre-order invoice for 6 to 10 sets of the Magical Child Oracle. Please include your location and how many sets you would like.)
Update 10/14: The Magical Child Oracle is done! Pre-orders open on Oct. 24th for a limited time. This is my 6th release and I am so happy to present this sweet project to you.
I had wanted to release the Magical Child Oracle following the Divine Muses Oracle completion in 2019. But as life would have it, the oracle got shelved multiple times.
Getting excited for the NW Tarot Symposium! It will be at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas, Oregon, Oct. 7–9.
I will be vending all of my decks (a few of them are low in stock.) I will also have the prototype for the upcoming Magical Child Oracle.
I hope to see you there! Be sure to swing by to say hello. If you are not attending workshops, you can still enter the vending hall for free!
Unfortunately, tarot scams and fraud have become more and more frequent, between piracy of actual decks and the array of fake sites pretending to sell decks at a fraction of the price, but send you nothing. Remember: if the price is too good to be true, it probably is!
Today, I am writing about the “triangulation scheme” that has been going on using tarot & oracle decks, and other popular selling items on Etsy.
The Antiquarian Tarot can be purchased in the shop now for a limited time. I only did a short print run based on requests and pre-orders. I am not planning on reprinting anymore for a while, so if you would like a copy, grab yours here. The set comes with a comprehensive guidebook and matching padded zipper bag making it the perfect gift for the beginner tarot reader or collector. Please contact me if you have questions. Happy Summer! Maree
Summer blessings! The Sun in astrology is about self-expression, power, vitality, and well-being. In Tarot, it teaches us to connect with our creativity to find what makes us thrive. The Lord of the Fire of the World is inviting us to shine our unique Light brightly with confidence. In a world that pushes fear, strips away faith, nuance, and is turning us into dedicated cynics, the Sun reminds us of our positive potential—our beautiful life force. It reawakens us to our creative source, helping to open our eyes wider with childlike wonder. This card asks us to unblock our hearts, dissolve bitter walls, and spread much needed joy. May the Sun shine its optimism on your path!
Gateway to eclipse season is here! The first eclipse of the year is a Taurus Solar Eclipse, this Saturday April 30, at 1:28pm Pacific.
An aspect of Mystic Rapture, from the Divine Muses Oracle, reveals a message about eclipse season that is ripe for reflections. Eclipses bring change and can make us look at our shadow. It's a time to adapt & grow beyond our current perception of ourselves and that of the Universe.
