The Cartomancer – The New Kid In Town

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Portland Tarot, the Egyptian Lenormand, the Rainbow Travellers Tarot, The Syzygy Oracle and SacredMandala, and Jadzia’s Unpublished Majors Deck.

Next publication date is August 1st, 2015. We are looking for submissions for articles, artwork and photography,  reviews, classifieds, and forum.

Note that articles have to be unique and unpublished, and that the Cartomancer has exclusive publication rights for twelve months.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!

I am sure the chocolates got your attention! Jadzia and Jay DeForest (founders of Devera Publishing) are presenting what we all hope will be an annual event this coming March – the Northwest Tarot Symposium. The focus, however, is not limited to Tarot – also included are oracles and the Lenormand. The Northwest Tarot Symposium (NWTS) will be held at the Monarch Hotel in Portland, Oregon, March 6th – 8th 2015.

This years presenters include Barbara Moor, James Wanless, Julie Cuccia-Watts, Jadzia DeForest, Jay DeForest, Jaymi Elford, Toni Gilbert, Miriam Jacobs, Mellissae Lucia, Marcia McCord, Heather Mendel, Teresa Michelsen, Carrie Paris, Christine Payne-Towler, Leeza Robertson and Amy Barilla, Casey Scanlon, Major Tom Schick and Valentina Burton, Pamela Steele, Carmen Waterman, Courtney Weber, and Katrina Wynne.

There will be vendors carrying books, cards, decks, ritual tools, jewelry, crystals, statuary, Tarot boxes, aromatherapy sprays, chocolates (ilk, dark, and white), learning cards, and more!

A potlatch table will be available, where people can place decks and books to be given away, or they can pick up a deck or book that they may not have, but are interested in.

Pamela Steele (The Steele Wizard Tarot, The Wizard’s Pets Tarot) is the driving force behind an incredible silent art auction – this will be a first for me, and I am really looking forward to it!

Enough for now! Check all of this out, then make your reservations post haste! Hope to see you all there!

The World of Magazines

magazines cover

What do magazines have to tell us? What place do they serve in our lives? There are all kinds of magazines, from the very, very general to the very, very specific. Today I am going to talk about magazines that focus on the world of divination – specifically Tarot, Lenormand, and oracle decks. We are going to look at two publications – The Cartomancer, a print quarterly that will have its birth into the real world in January of 2015, and Attune Magazine, a digital quarterly that has been with us for some time now.

The Cartomancer

The Cartomancer is a print quarterly, founded by Jadzia and Jay DeForest (Devera Publishing). The focus is on Tarot, the Lenormand, and oracle decks. The magazine will include articles, columns, book and deck reviews, art, advertising, and more. In a sense of transparency, I need to tell you that I am on the editorial staff. I will be contributing to the magazine, and I encourage all of you that have something to offer to submit your work too! You can also advertise your work here, which I think is a huge bonus, as the magazine is targeted to a specific audience. I am looking forward to seeing how well this magazine does. For more information, here is the link to The Cartomancer website. There is also a Facebook group that can be found here.

Atune Magazne cover

Attune Magazine is a digital quarterly founded by Mary Nale and Bill Back. The focus is on Tarot, the Lenormand, and oracle decks, as well as other things within the world of divination. The magazine includes articles, columns, book and deck reviews, poetry, videos, advertising, and more. Attune Magazine is also targeted to a specific audience, so advertising here is a bonus for your work. This magazine just keeps getting better and better! or more information, here is the ink to Attune Magazine. They also have a Facebook group which can be found here.

So, why exactly do I find magazines interesting, if not essential? Magazines put in one small space a lot of information on defined topics. I subscribe to fashion magazines, to financial magazines, to whatever magazines ill in the niche where I feel that I need information. I like the mix of text and images in magazines, and the articles are (usually) of a length where I can read  them in one sitting. I have gotten a tremendous amount of ideas from magazines – they have expanded my thinking, and my world. With these two specific magazines, we have the opportunity to express ourselves, and to grow both personally and professionally. I hope that you take the time to check them both out!
