So I am going to be completely honest, I was very disappointed in this deck. I was actually a bit shocked by it. The Weaver Tarot, The Ascendant Edition is a deck from the Threads of Fate company and I had previously purchased their Shadow Oracle deck, which I love. I actually could go on and on over the oracle deck, however this is not about that deck, this is about the Weaver Tarot. While it has all the potential for a wonderful deck, one small design choice really ruined it for me. So let’s get into it!
So I had never actually heard of the True Black Tarot until recently when I was turned onto it by one of my online friends. Once I went to the site and found it, I fell in love. The cards were stunning and the website had an air of mystery involving it. I ordered the cards and have had them for a few weeks, and as such decided I would do a review on this stunning, and exclusive, deck.
Dream Magic can be very powerful and has been used for as long as magic has been around. Appearing in everything from modern day magical texts, and going back through the ages to appear in the Three Occult Books of Philosophy by Agrippa in the 16th century, The Sworn Book of Honorius from the 13th century, and even appearing multiple times in The Greek Magical Papyri which was written between the 2nd century BC through the 5th century AD, dream magic has long been used by man as a way to bring affect change in the world. From spells that use dreams for prophecy, to influence the dreams of others, to even contacting the spirit world, Dream Magic is as versatile as your dreams are.
So for those that normally love my writing, I apologize as my fingers are killing me from work. In the meantime, check out my latest episode by simply clicking play above! (And imagine it is more of my wonderfully worded prose versus my rambling diabribe). I promise to be back soon with something else fun and exciting!
So this is a deck I am very excited to review, as I know the actual creator and I have been personally hounding them for MONTHS about this deck to come out (#sorrynotsorry). In fact, the moment they announced the release of the deck I went and bought it so quickly that I later found out that I had been the first person to purchase it! Yay me! But enough about me and the amazing person who brought this deck to life, this is about the deck and cards itself. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
As a witch, you have a responsibility to yourself to practice your craft the best way you know how. How can you do that when you don't learn yourself how these things work? How can you feel confident in your craft and yourself if you are always looking for validation from others instead of learning the confidence to try something yourself?
So this is going to be a bit personal for me. I think it would be for anyone. When we talk about deities and our relationship to them, we are talking about a sacred part of who we are and our beliefs. We are talking about the part of ourselves that looks for something more, looks for answers, and looks for guidance. It is easy to get swept up into the Witchtok version, where deities seem more like best friends who are always there for you, and while that might work for those individuals, to me deity worship in my practice is a bit different.
So, you want to be a witch. You might be new to the craft, or a self identified “baby witch”. You could be someone looking to see what this is all about. You could even be looking at this from a perspective of someone looking to get back into the craft after years being away.
Earth, Air, Fire, Water. Since the dawn of time these elements have been the driving force of our world. They have been worshipped, studied, admired, and even feared. What can be more beautiful than a snow capped peak, or a rose petal dancing in the wind? What can be as awe inspiring as a hurricane? Or as feared as a forest fire? In this lesson we will do a dive into these primal forces to help get a better understanding of their uses in magic.

Thank the gods I only have 26 twitter followers so it wasn't that bad, but it was not a good feeling when a close friend messaged me saying I looked like a … Continue reading The Personal Responsibility of Spirituality
