There is a new kid on the block in the world of divination – one that promises to spark interest, inform, educate, and share the work that is being done in the fields of Tarot, Lenormand, and Oracle reading. The Cartomancer is a quarterly magazine whose premier edition came out on May 1st, 2015. The magazine can be purchased in both print and e-zine format, and is being brought to us by Devera Publishing (Jay and Jadzia DeForest). I am very honored to have been asked to be on the editorial staff for this publication.
The premier issue included articles by Jay, Jadzia, and myself, along with Jaymi Innowen Elford, Camelia Elias, Pamela Steele, Heather Mendel, and Mellissae Lucia. Great articles on divinatory humor were presented by James Ricklef (“Today I Will Nurture My Inner Demons”), and Pamela Steele (“Good Trade!”). Reviews include Under the Roses Lenormand, Le Tarot Noir, The Burning Serpent Oracle, the Vintage Wisdom Oracle, thte Sacred Mandala Lenormand Oracle, and the Tarot de St. Croix. Featured deck imagery included the Wise Fool Tarot (along with an interview with its creator, Cade Burkhammer), the Magical Realism Tarot, the Portland Tarot, the Egyptian Lenormand, the Rainbow Travellers Tarot, The Syzygy Oracle and SacredMandala, and Jadzia’s Unpublished Majors Deck.
Note that articles have to be unique and unpublished, and that the Cartomancer has exclusive publication rights for twelve months.
The Cartomancer is a full color, glossy magazine. In my opinion, this is a collectors item. We look forward to submissions from the cartomancy community, and the sharing of experiences as well as art. From the mission statement: “Our goal is to support an inclusive and mutually supportive community of Tarot, Lenormand, and Oracle readers worldwide through a quarterly journal that includes … ” (well written articles, high quality divination art, a marketplace for artists and authors, a public forum for letters and editorials).
We are looking forward to your submissions!
