The Oriens Tarot is an animal themed deck that is available for pre-order at Kickstarter. 10% of the funds raised for the project will be denoted to rain forest preservation.
Each card in The Oriens Tarot Deck is designed with rich symbolism and innate intuitiveness in mind. Every animal is meticulously selected through thoughtful research and analysis for their metaphoric significance. The deck also references the Rider-Waite tarot deck and its influence is prevalent across the cards.
30-year-old relief pitcher Liam Hendricks of the Oakland A’s was pretty bad last season. He was bad enough that management demoted him to the minor leagues in mid-season. Desperate to get his career back on track he turned to a psychic for advice.
“Talking to my wife’s tarot card reader really helped. She’s phenomenal,” he said. “She does a great job. She’s done a couple readings for me and it really helped me open my eyes a little bit,” Hendricks said.
The psychic had this to say about her sessions with baseball player:
“Healing is a never-ending process and as long as clients understand that then I can work with them,” Rios said. “We may uncover triggers, blocks and find solutions, but in all reality there is always something we have to work on ourselves. …
“I believe that if a client has reached a point where change needs to happen, being open minded to any healing method whether it be with tarot cards or energy healing there comes a time when you have to just take that opportunity to see if any change can occur.”
Another quote from Hendricks about his experiences with divination: “Triple-A last year was humbling,” he said. “She told me the cards and I was more concerned with the meaning, whether it was face up, face down, upside down and all that. I just think it’s a better mindset. Whether I’m all gung ho believing it or not, it’s something that helped me get out of a funk.”
Here is a new tarot deck that is currently being funded by Kickstarter. If you are a fan of the famous Rider-Waite-Smith tarot like most of us are, this is very intriguing. Focused on the faces and the main messages of the original drawings of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, each card should give you a new perspective on Pamela Colman Smith’s marvelous drawings. Basically, it looks like the images are zoomed in to focus on the character’s faces. Here are a couple of examples:
The artist and creator of this deck is Lily Stone who also created The Pixie Tarot and The Stone Marseilles Tarot. Apparently she named this new deck Pixie’s People because Pamela Coleman Smith (the Smith in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck) was nicknamed Pixie. That is news to me, I never knew that before. Anyhow, you can support her Kickstarter campaign and pre-order your deck here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lilystone/the-tarot-of-pixies-people
