Prophecy and Initiation

Blessed Imbolc! As the wheel of the year continues to turn, we are presented with the first signs of spring. The days are visibly growing longer, and Winter is slowly becoming a memory.

A Review: The Prisma Visions Tarot

The Prisma Visions Tarot started as a Kickstarter campaign, and has been on the market for nearly a year for all non-backers.

Growth and Change

When we begin to exist in this world, we are but a speck - unseeable to the naked eye. From there, we grow thousands of times over before we begin to exist as a recognizable person.
