The Eight of Wands from
the Transformational Tarot

"The unknowable lives in a pack of cards after it has been fairly shuffled but before it has been dealt, when all the possibilities are open, and when each possibility matters."

What’s New…

It's been a while. (Mistress of the Understatement, that's me.)

I have had a lot of things happen in my personal life and I needed a break. I didn't expect to take quite such a long one. During that time, I re-assessed what I wanted to do with Tarot Passages.

I don't plan to review (or try and review) every deck or book that comes out anymore. What I want most is to concentrate on decks and artists and writers that I think are really of value to the tarot community. I realize that's subjective. But time is a precious commodity--not only for me, but you.

My intention is to update at least once a month (maybe more).

The Tarot Passages website is quite expensive to maintain. If you find the site of value, please use the links to purchase items. All proceeds go to maintenance of the site.     

If you haven't signed up for the Tarot Passages Newsletter, now might be a good time. The Newsletter offers information on the tarot that may or may not eventually make it to this page. Sometimes it even lists tarot bargains or unusual decks for sale. In addition, newsletter membership qualifies you to enter the monthly sample reading drawing.  Click here to join.                        

I've missed you.  And this.
