Which Tarot Cards Represent The Zodiac Signs?

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


No time for an introduction, this is a big post! Here’s your one place for all the tarot cards that represent zodiac signs and their cosmic elements. Here’s how this works. First comes the main Major Arcana card representing the zodiac. Then, there are three minor arcana cards representing the three decans of a sign according to planetary alignments. You can check your decan online by searching for a decan wheel! You might even share some of these attributes if your planets fall on these signs. Finally, the most relatable court card will merely be mentioned. Take note, Pages always represents the signs’ element as a whole, so only Knights, Queens and Kings will appear. Be aware that some of...

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


In the last few months I’ve gifted two of my friends their first tarot decks. However, because they’re both long-distance friends, when it came to teaching the basics I got… busy. What I should have done, I thought, is send them a few links to start with, rather than leave them at the mercy of their own research, because they too can get too busy to start! And so, this blog post is a sort of Tarot 101 that’s long overdue for La Muci’s website! It’s a single page you can send to a complete tarot beginner, full of links for further reading! With no further ado, let’s dive straight into a series of basic questions and vocabulary that many...

Tarot Deck Interview Spread

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


We often feel the call for a new tarot deck, sometimes guilty of consumerism, other times unable to explain this urge. Whether you’re reading personally or professionally, it makes sense to feel this urge: because tarot is a language, different decks can have a different visual cue to communicate to you subconscious. Many tarot readers have ‘a deck for every occasion’, intuitively feeling when to use which and why they got it in the first place. However, if you want to be completely sure of the what and the why, a simple deck interview spread can help you identify its traits as well as break the ice.   The deck interview spread Depending on whether you practise with Guidance or not,...

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


How would you interpret three fours showing up in your reading? Or four Knights? A King and an Emperor? The answer is in numerology. By the end of this blog post, you’ll have the knowledge to interpret these phenomena! Tarot and numerology go hand in hand. It’s often the recommended first thing to learn when getting into tarot divinations. In combination with suits and astrological associations, the breaking down of these elements is what makes the learning process easier for some.

Thoth Tarot Deck vs. Rider Waite Smith Tarot Deck - How Do They Compare?

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


June last year we had a blog post explaining: Are all tarot cards the same? The answer then was yes and no. Yes, so long as the basic ‘rules’ and structure is the same, the visual possibilities are infinite. At the same time, because visuals and symbolisms can be different, it empowers different dimensions of interpretation and, potentially, meanings. That being said, why does the Thoth Tarot Deck seem to be treated as separate from most tarot? Same origins, different takes The classical Rider Waite-Smith which most decks redesign these days and whose system they all primarily follow, comes from an author and illustrator from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. It was a secret society studying and practising...

Are tarot cards witchcraft?

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


Last August, we wrote a blog post answering: ‘How do I explain Tarot cards to family, friends and colleagues?’. The blog post asks you to consider how you explain tarot to yourself. Only then consider diving into the many ways you can formulate your practice to non-practitioners. A common question non-practitioners ask is: are tarot cards witchcraft? The short answer is no While many witches practice divination, reading tarot alone doesn’t identify you as a witch. Creative writers use tarot for story telling. Business people use it for brainstorming. Even psychiatrists use it for conversing with their clients. Tarot is a language and a tool, and it’s your intention behind your use of any practice, as well as personal choice,...

Announcing the Baroque Tarot Deck

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


With the successful shipment of the Fantome Kickstarter and a satisfied, peaceful mind, knowing that all of my appreciated supporters are receiving their decks one by one, I am proud to announce my second Kickstarter campaign for the Baroque Tarot Deck!As its name suggests, the deck is inspired by the Baroque style movement that was at its peak in seventeenth and eighteenth century Europe. The most prominent aspect of Baroque is gold, lots and lots of gold. With the producing of Âme and the La Muci Oracle Deck, at the time the card could only mimic gold with printed colors, for La Muci Design was just starting out. Now, we can finally deliver on a gorgeous, gold-foil design with the Baroque...

A beginner's guide to spirit-work.

Posted by Esra Dagtekin on


Throughout the Month of Alternative Divinations, which was every week of October up to Halloween, I've referenced 'spirit-work'. Especially when it came to pendulums and runes, I skipped over the concept of ancestral divinations or working with your 'spiritual guide'. This might have piqued your curiosity — it sure spiked mine while I was researching for the blog posts! So instead of sending you guys down a rabbit hole of research, I decided that I'll provide you with a post that covers the beginner's things to be aware of before starting with spirit-work. What is Spirit-Work? There are several facets to spirit-work, but today's most popular focus is connecting and working with your Spirit Guide — a spirit that helps your soul attain...
