Wisdom of the Vampires, as a topic book paired with the Game of Thrones Tarot. 🍷 I'll be away for a bit with Tarot study friends; back soon to my TBR reviews in September!

I learned a new spread, I Drink & I Know Things 😄🍷 The Red Keep is also a cool 4-card reading. The best expertise in placing characters to Tarot cards, with numerology tie-ins. Characters can make repeat poses, following true to storyline events; indeed with major spoilers revealed, if you haven't read all, or- seen all the HBO show. 😜 Even in interpreting wisdom from naughty kings and queens; I am impressed with this deck!

A general look at the beautiful and awesome Game of Thrones card representations. 🌞

Maewyn How are the meanings? If they are true to the experiences in the books and show and also accurately portray the meaning of the card then that could be a useful tool to a new reader. 2w
daena Wow. These are fantastic! 2w
AlobelThee @Maewyn The scenes and meanings are tied to storyline examples. I really like and easily pick up on insights from the cool placements. Characters will repeat a few times in the cards, with great takes on each message. -- I'm enjoying the guidebook read! 2w
Maewyn That is awesome! I might have to look into those. 🤔 Books a million is closing the store near work. If they have any left then they will be discounted. 2w

My current year in magick reads is getting luckier still! 😃🛡 GoT Tarot, just in at the local shop, as a previously used deck. I got it neatly cheaper than a high offer you bet I'm ready to make; $15 from $25, on a set I've noticed going pricer at the malls. This spiritual shop bargain also included a free ritual smudging of white sage. Gotta keep positive vibes around these characters. 😸

A simplified, very detailed and fascinating read; Oracle wisdom within everything in Lord of the Rings - lands, characters, and treasures. Lots of insightful tie-ins to other relating mythology archetypes. 🏞🔮 This is super cool for a deeper spiritually symbolic look at the brilliant adventure of the LotR series. Meditating on these cards are sure to inspire a full re-read again for the books. 🤓

Thanks to my crafty dad for some soft spray cleansing. The Middle-Earthy scent was stirring at my allergies; this might have been in a storage basement before getting to a used bookstore. 😟 I do feel cautiously superstitious, to bet against using The One Ring as a swinging pendulum .. card reading is my main focus. 🔔💓 I'll say, with my own Tingsha bells; the Rings can use more rings! I'm eagerly on to reading the guidebook.

SkeletonKey Oooo! Nice art. 2w

I started this iBook as a read between work shifts, now arriving at the end while fully enjoying the story. Tip adventures with the Tin-Man and Scarecrow, with some new friends (Jack Pumpkinhead, Sawhorse, and Woggle-Bug) traveling in an enchanted flying sofa Gump. 😄💗 The magic wordplay and logic conversations are hilarious fun! I was glad to get reading this Book 2, as I'll sure keep on for the full Oz series in iBooks.

MandaMT I read this series so many times as a kid! I love the characters in the later books. NBC did one season of a show called Emerald City, which did a lot of creative stuff with lesser known characters. 2w
AlobelThee @MandaMT I remember catching bits of the Emerald City show. It looked really cool to seek out again sometime. I just noticed now, there was a 1985 'Return to Oz' movie I'd love to see as well. 2w
MandaMT @AlobelThee I saw that movie as a kid. It creeped me out. I forget which book it‘s based on, but I remember the Gnome king is in it. 2w

A great book on wizard history, based around the story of Sir Isaac Newton's fascination with apothecary alchemy; a secretive past before he moves more to science than magic. Isaac's quest though magical studies, adds to a closer look at the history between honesty and trickery with pioneer wizards, such as astrology and medicine potions. Lots of historic illustrations with a cool read. ⚗️💚

Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle, bought new during my trip to see Barrie's shop - Bell, Book & Candle. 😏 I sure remember 10 years ago .. looking at this deck online, and struggling with feeling that it might seem too girly for a boy .. ✌️🤓 The opportunity today got me 50% off on belly dancing scarfs for sale.

Super beautiful illustrations and words of wisdom between each page; summarized from the Les Vampires oracle cards, now as a vampire messages flip-book. 🦇 I've been collecting card decks by the Lucy & Jasmine team - best enjoying these Vampires in book form; on positive discipline, coping with sorrow, and living your passionate joys.

My sister got really attached to borrowing my Les Vampires cards. I felt best to let her keep the deck, and I ordered in the book version. 😜 Wisdom of the Vampires is very much about hunger and positive self-control. With several Lucy & Jasmine desks I collect, I'd like better to carry one in book form.

My parents caught on to the Crave TV demos of Game of Thrones, found with Rogers Ignite as a new TV setup. That allows Seasons 1 & 2 for free, before the rest needs a subscription. Mom & Dad were okay with skipping on to S5 on sale at Walmart. 😄 I helped them out with S6 & 7 as well. -- That's going faster and somewhat alternative to the reading.. I might wait a bit more here with reading A Dance with Dragon, until Winter does start to arrive. 😜

rretzler I am also waiting for Winds of Winter (for both watching beyond S5 and for a reread)...but I think it may be a looooonnnnggg wait. (Even more than it already has been)😫. 3mo

I enjoyed this Carl Jung summary book, as a great study guide to check back on again at times with the library. Harry Potter fans could well relate to the elemental (like the Tarot) personality types. (I'm also thinking of the True Colours quiz with career workshops, inspired by Carl Jung's insights.) Star Wars on the 'shadow side', and many more heroic journeys that are really cool to compare. Lots of the best in dream analysis psychology. 📖

Look what the Easter Egg bunny brought me! 😸 This might be a coincidence, but I sure noticed the Hearthstone resemblance.

I like the surreal illustrations in this deck. The guidebook was a quick read, but fair on the descriptions that can tend to have darker psychological sides, including the featured Lunatic Spread reading. This would be best for Carl Jung fans of the 'shadow self', swayed mysteriously by the Deviant Moon image. 🌚 I currently have the iOS app version, saved for the eerie alternative study; insightful on understanding deep emotions.
