When they told you that you might feel something, you weren’t prepared for feeling everything, and that those feelings would fold into an encompassing experience. Well, here you are with an increasing wealth of sensations that are almost overwhelming. Don’t try to deal with them all at once. Pick one or two that you can touch without flinching and settle into them like a homemade shawl. As you learn how to let them flow without harm, you will learn how to handle the others you can’t yet touch as well. In time, what felt like an abyssal drowning maelstrom will become a comfortable lounging pool where you can be safe with yourself.


Bryan Lahr’s Wyzard of Odd tarot deck is a work of art featuring carefully crafted images of literal smoke and mirrors. The deck is based on the Thoth and the margins are lined with correspondences from various esoteric practices. The slightly oversize deck works well for contemplation as the images fold onto themselves and unfolds upon the viewer. In following with the tradition set by the Thoth deck, Wyzard Princes are equivalent to Waite’s Knights, and Wyzard Knights are equivalent to Waite’s Kings.

All readers are invited to leave a comment about what they perceive in the random spread as each person will interact with the cards in their own way.
