Today’s cards: Prince of Cups, Knight of Wands, & Princess of Swords.

They portray themselves as benevolent and generous to the point where their appearance is taken as a sign of approaching grace. All the more reason to be critical of their actions and subtle in your response. It is not enough to note how many flags they fly with one hand, but what actions are they taking with the other behind their back.


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.
