No that long ago I did a review of this uniquely beautiful deck, it can be found here. This new edition looks more than promising and I am certain it will remain as hauntingly enduring as the first.
A pattern has surreptitiously emerged out of these auguries, I have just noticed, and it is that they tend to come out once the week has already begun. I mostly wait for the inclination/inspiration to do them. This week’s augury is a bit later than the previous ones, but nonetheless, the week is just beginning, … More The bridge of utterance.
October 16-22. This week’s augury brings a heady mix into play. At the center of this interplay are the three coins spinning in harmony, as well as fortitude, or strength, showing prowess and might standing above the beast, just as the lady upholds the moon above the serpent-like cords in her other hand. How do … More Wading through moonlit landscapes
After a brief hiatus last weekend, I was in the middle of moving, I am back with this week’s augury. As I was shuffling my playing cards, my mind drifted towards the Tabula Mundi deck by MM Meleen, which I have unfortunately rarely used.

This is a sign of things turning for the worse, but alas, as the edifice crumbles, the promise of release for the blade is immanent, as what … More A short augury
August 28- Steptember 3 As the month of August winds down and the lunar cycle is in its beginning stages, the week starts with a welcoming embrace but soon digresses into a polarized field of antagonism and pressure. Finally ending in an entangled note. The bottom card reminds us to keep our balances clear and … More Colorful Weekly Augury
Around February of this year, Rubedo Press released a book by Jose Leitao, compiled and translated by him. I jumped at the chance to purchase the book as I highly admire his writing, his narrative is both accessible and rich. I find his scholarly take on the subject of Saint Cyprian, and especially on The … More An Enchanted Landscape through The Immaterial Book
and with wine, for the week of August 21-27. This week starts off ‘swell‘ but deflates towards the end. The focus is mainly on work and money, again, initially. As the weekend looms closer the attention shifts towards more social and indulgent affairs. With the eclipse close at hand, and the violent events that continue … More Weekly Augury by candlelight…
