Tarot Journaling: Using the Celtic Cross to Unveil Your Hidden Story
A tarot journal can help you learn more about the cards, but it can also teach you a great deal about yourself. Beginning tarot students are advised to keep a tarot journal, and many experienced tarot readers are devoted to the practice. The only book of its kind, Tarot Journaling covers everything needed to create, keep, and preserve a personal tarot journal.
Readers will discover hundreds of ideas to inspire and enliven their tarot journals, including considerations when choosing journaling materials, how to save time when recording readings, techniques for getting past writer's block, tips for turning negative energy into a positive brainstorming tool, and innovative ideas for protecting privacy. Tarot Journaling offers readers the tools to record and reflect upon the stories told by the cards-the stories of our lives.
| The Sacred Circle Tarot Kit
The Sacred Circle Tarot is a new concept in tarot design, combining photographs, computer imaging and traditional drawing techniques to create stunning images. It draws on the Pagan heritage of Britain and Ireland, its sacred sites and landscapes. Key symbols unlock the deepest levels of Pagan teaching.
The imagery of the cards is designed to work on a number of levels, serving as a tool not only for divination but to facilitate meditation, personal growth and spiritual development. The "sacred circle" refers to the progress of the initiate from undirected energy, through dawning consciousness, to the death of the old self and the emergence of the new.
The major arcana is modified somewhat to fit the pagan theme of the deck. For example, "The Fool" becomes "The Green Man", "The Heirophant" becomes "The Druid", and "The World" becomes "The World Tree". The accompanying book gives a full explanation of the symbolism in the cards and their divinatory meanings.

| Faery Wicca Tarot
The 83-card Faery Wicca Tarot is a unique system that blends traditional tarot images with the mystical symbology of modern Faery Wicca. It is based on the ancient Bardic system of understanding the universe, which is considered to be the shamanic roots of the Irish Faery-Faith, a pre-Christian, pre_Celtic spiritual tradition. This ancient wisdom is made accessible by integrating shamanic skills with meditative practices, and bringing the knowledge gained from the Otherworld into the light of everyday living.
The cards take you deeper into your spiritual evolution through magickal archetypes, mystical symbols, and the wisdom of the ancients. Each card contains a Bardic teaching designed to awaken greater psychic perception.
The book outlines the card descriptions, meanings, symbol interpretations, and Faery lore and myths. Powerful tarot spreads reflect the ancient mystery teachings.

|The Golden Dawn: The Original Account of the Teachings, Rites & Ceremonies of the Hermetic Order
The Golden Dawn by Israel Regardie is considered by many to be the book that started the modern occult movement. The original Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which started in the late 1800s, borrowed from a wide variety of occult traditions Kabalah, Tarot, Geomancy, Enochian Magic, Theosophy, Freemasonry, Paganism, Astrology, and many more and created a unique and viable system of magic that is still being practiced today. Almost every contemporary occult writer and modern group has been influenced, directly or indirectly, by the Order or its members, making The Golden Dawn one of the most influential occult books of the past 100 years.
The book is divided into several basic sections. First are the knowledge lectures, where you will learn the basics of the Kabalah, symbolism, meditation, geomancy and more. This is followed by the rituals of the Outer Order, consisting of five initiation rituals into the degrees of the Golden Dawn.
The next section covers the rituals of the Inner Order including two initiation rituals, equinox ceremonies, and more. Then you will learn the basic rituals of magic and the construction, consecration, and means of using the magical tools. Once you have these you can go on to evocation rituals, talismans, and invocations.
