You’re not sure what you want, but you are quite sure that what you have is not what you want. How do you chase something you can’t describe much less qualify? By using your desires as signposts leading to what will enable you to achieve your desires. Permit your imagination to be larger than your reality so you can consider doing things that you normally would not have given yourself permission to do before. The act of reaching for the goal is part of that same goal. Get to it.


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.
