Wonderland Tarot in a Tin Available Thursday January 20th
by Chris Abbey (Author), Morgana Abbey (Author)
Join the mad tea party with the beloved characters of Lewis Carroll in The Wonderland Tarot, including The Mad Hatter (Fool), Alice (High Priestess), Humpty Dumpty (Sun), the White Rabbit (Judgement) and all the others. The delightful artwork by Morgana Abbey pays homage to the hand-drawn Victorian style of Sir John Tenniel, illustrator of the first edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In this whimsical tarot deck the Minor Arcana suits are flamingos for Swords, peppermills for Staves, hats for Cups and oysters for Coins. In the spirit of the Alice books, as a nod to the Queen of Hearts, playing card suit marks are included on the Minor Arcana cards, so this deck may be used for traditional card games as well as tarot readings. This pocket-sized deck comes in a tin with a 56-page booklet.

Note from Chris Abbey & Morgana Abbey 2016: A lot changes over the years, and this deck remains a happy memory for us. If you knew it from before, we hope seeing it again brought you a grin, Cheshire Cat-like or not. If you are encountering this for the first time, we hope to match the grin. Thank you for all before and for all that is to come.

From the wonderful Victorian images to the silvery card edges...I’m over the moon for this deck!
I’m also loving the fold over box lid that closes magnetically.  U.S. Games and Ciro Marchetti have executed a wonderful product that I recommend to anyone who has an interest in learning “Kipper” card reading.  I love that Ciro has updated the imagery in a way that keeps the integrity of the original cards yet gives us something fresh and new.  

In the guidebook you will find quite a bit of information-and I like this. In the past we’ve seen many LWB’s that give us very generic information about card meanings.  This book is truly a guidebook that you will want to read.  Ciro covers the story about how this deck came into being as well as information from three different experts that will help you learn the card meanings:  Fortune Buchholtz, Stella Waldvogal and Susanne Ziti
There are two spreads illustrated in the guidebook to get you started.  

17 Gift
From the Guidebook- FB: Fortune Buchholtz
This is a very positive and enabling card.  While the significator relaxes in the family room by a cozy fire, a surprise is presented.  This card means gifts, aid, help, support, resources, rescue and joy.  It is usually exactly what you need.  This powerful card has the ability to soften  nearby challenging ones.  It also reveals an interesting timong idea unique to Kipper, representing “by the next holiday of any sort” or a birthday.  Generally, I use it to stand for winter, Christmas or Yule.  (FB= Fortune Buchholtz)

Be open to the support of others.  Be receptive to small positive gestures or proposals.  This card can indicate a new job offer, a promotion or helpfulness.  It also announces a gesture of reconciliation or even a declaration of love.  This this gift and embrace the opportunity. (SZ=Susanne Ziti)

This is a very lucky card that can take the idge off of nearby negative cards.  It stands for happiness, praise, profits, recognition or an actual gift.  Near the significator, it’s even stronger.  There is no downside to this card.  It indicates a timeframe around the next holiday or celebration.  (SW= Stella Waldvogal)

The gesture is depicted in such a way as to serve both as a the act of giving or receiving.  (CM=Ciro Marchetti)

Mystical Wisdom Cards for Dream Analysis?

Mystical Wisdom Cards for Dream Analysis?
by Gaye Guthrie (Author), Josephine Wall (Author, Illustrator)
U.S. Games Systems Inc.



I’m so taken with this deck that I decided to give it a try for dream analysis.  I’ve been in a cycle of dreams, dreams on top of dreams and recurring dreams for a few months now.  I drew four cards to shed some light…I removed the three angel cards from the deck before drawing the cards.
Below you will find the card images and the information provided in the guidebook.  All credit for the information goes to Gaye Guthrie, Josephine Wall  and U.S. Games Systems Inc.
As I look at each image I’m amazed at the layers of information you can use as cues for your intuition.  I’m impressed with the way this deck can clue into dream space.  I’m not sure the deck was created to be used this ways but it works!  You may be wondering why I removed the three angel cards before choosing four cards for the message...for me personally, the angel cards would only cloud my ability to intuit information.  It’s interesting to note here that during this particular dream cycle, I’ve been trying to work out what it is I want to DO next.  Stuck in a rut?  Maybe, but it’s bigger than this.  I’m finally feeling physically better than I have in a year-but I know I have to work at this daily with good choices.  Now, there’s a battle of weight that was gained over the past several years that cannot be ignored.  Our bodies are something we all take for granted.  When they break down there is always a reason.  Stress will kill you.  We hear it all of the time...but, we don’t really understand this until we are faced with an illness.


Enough about doom and gloom!  My dreams are simply showing me that I can move on, it is time.  But, I have to move in a new direction-a direction that excludes chaos.


Opportunity Knocks
Go For It!
New opportunities are coming your way, brilliant ideas, educational possibilities, new friends, expanding your potential and opening yourself to greater possibilities.  You are a good team player and have gained respect from your work colleagues and peers.  You have a good reason to feel proud of your achievements and attitudes towards yourself and others.  Embrace this new endeavor with this raw creative energy.  Go for it!  It is time to dazzle yourself and stretch your wings and fly.


Enlightenment
Pursue Spiritual Growth
You have come into your own and are in search of something more meaningful to add to your life.  Now is the time to meditate, deliberate self-evaluate and withdraw voluntarily from the world to seek truth and solitude.
Reast and a quiet retreat away from the daily routine will allow you to consider enlightened decisions and go in the direction of the heart.  This may also be the time to seek advice and spiritual guidance from a mentor or experienced person.



Creative Wonderment
Follow Your Passion
You are able to bring fruition something within your imagination that you alone have thought of.  Being creative is relaxing and therapeutic whether it’s cooking, sewing, woodworking, photography, writing or art.  Whatever it may be that stimulates your imagination, this is the time for you to create and inspire others.  Utilize your skills.  Take classes and follow your passion.  You will one day have the opportunity to turn your heartfelt creativity into your life’s work.  Create Your labor of love!



Battle of the Blues
Take Steps Towards Positive Change
When you have sad feelings of gloom and inadequacy, you need to recognize this is a temporary situation.  Feelings of sadness and negative thoughts can immobilize you and only you can change this.  Perhaps it is a wake up call to get into action and make changes.  Take small steps and keep moving everyday to bring positive changes and self empowerment.  Exercise, study, socialize with like minded people, listen to music, and talk about your feelings with trusted friends and family.  Know that the magic of the universe and the angels are there to support and guide you.  Gather your courage and rise to meet your challenges.
