Fool Me Once

Happy April Fools Day! If you are here for the “Two Truths and a lie game, you are in luck!” To recap, your job is to guess which of the following three statements isn’t true: 1) I only have ten more cards to paint, and the date of the Kickstarter for the Tabula Mundi Colores […]

Magazine article: field guide to the animals in Tabula Mundi

The current issue of Tarosophy Magazine Vol II Issue 7 has an article I wrote as a “Field Guide” to the creatures of Tabula Mundi. There is a glossary of divinatory meanings for animals both real and mythological. Digital copies are free to all Tarot Professionals members, and anyone can buy a hard copy. The […]

The Ten of Disks: Adam Kadmon and the Vault

The last of the decanic minors, the Ten of Disks, was the most recent card finished. This card, as the last decan of Virgo which is ruled by Mercury, combines the energies of the Hermit with the Magus, in the sephira of Malkuth.     The following is from Book M: Liber Mundi, the guidebook […]

Latest review of Tabula Mundi Nox et Lux

A review of the Tabula Mundi Tarot’s Nox et Lux edition was recently written by Djamila Zon, of the website “The Queen’s Sword” (www.thequeenssword.com). This is a link to Djamila’s review of the Nox et Lux on her website. It is very thoughtfully done and thorough. She reviewed the deck as a stand alone, with […]

Success and Failure

Success, it is satisfying. The Six of Disks turned out way better than I thought it would. Color made so much difference! Once again too, the color scales were perfect for the card. The Six of Disks is the only decanic Disk that does not have a flecked color for the sephira, as that color is […]

Color Scales in Action

Sometimes, color makes all the difference. Especially when the Gooden Dawn color scales fit the subject matter so perfectly. It just makes an impact. I was not going to post about this card because I did not photo document the painting process. But I wish I did because this one has been pretty fun to […]

The Taurus cards: the Five of Worry

These cards all have the colors of Taurus, or the Hierophant. All earthy tones Red Orange; Deep Indigo; Deep Warm Olive;  and Rich Brown. Plus the colors of the sephira in Assiah and the colors of the decan’s planetary ruler. In the Five of Disks the ruler is Mercury which has the more ethereal colors of […]

The Princess Scale: all those flecked colors

I’ve finally gotten to painting the decans of the Disk cards. This is where we most start to see the flecked colors which show the mixed and shattered colors inherent in the suit of earth. Tiphareth is the only sephira that does not have a flecked (or rayed) color in the Princess, or Empress, scale. I guess as […]
