The Pip Cards

posted in: Card Image, News, Practice | 0

Today, we share our conception of the pip cards and two of our images as an example

The 6 of Swords & The 2 of Pentacles:

twoPips

We decided to keep the pips unillustrated, to focus on the numbers and the element of the suit symbol, similar to the tradition of the Tarot de Marseilles. But as Lady Frieda Harris in the Thoth Tarot, we go beyond the symbols in expressing meaning through colour and form. Each suit has its own colour scheme to fit the element. So for the Swords it is colours of coolness for the rationalty and decision-making of the suit, whilst the Coins are in colours of earth and vegetation. But here and there you can also discover a dragon-figure or dragon-eye. Just look closely …

Tarot Conference 2016

posted in: Card Image, Event, Practice | 0

On our TarotCon last Saturday, Nora Huszka and Steph Engert presented the deck to the highly engaged audience. As the deck has progressed considerably since our last presentation in November, we now focussed not so much on showing individual images, but on the overall conception and on how to work with the deck. Its unique format of square cards “on tiptoe” opens new possibilities for spreads and readings. Here a first glance on one spread pattern – just the ‘mechanics’, not the interpretation.

We begin with one card as a significator (drawn or deliberately chosen as an expression of what the query is all about):

empress

Then we lay out the spread as four cards marking the axis points of the Significator:

We read the cards along the axes like from the bottom (base) card up and from left to right. Obviously, the Significator card has here a real position of power, integrating as well as directing the flows from the cards.

Then we have different options to ‘mutate’ the original spread, this is one of them – completing the picture:

The added cards can be viewed as ‘bridges’; they say something about how we get from one to the other axis cards. They also a square of energy of their own around the Significator.

Today, we invited the local press in Solingen to the Atelier WeCreate, location for our conference on March 19th. The press meeting as well as  the event itself naturally includes a presentation of the Starlight Dragon deck.

See here Nora and Steph proudly presenting the Empress and the Hierophant from the deck on a photo from the excellent article by Martina Hörle for the Solinger Bote, a local paper on the Internet:

Das Starlight Dragon Deck ist die spannende gemeinsame Tarot-Schöpfung von Steph Engert (Konzeption/Texte) and Nora Huszka (Konzeption/Bilder). Befeuert von Drachen und unserer Kreativiät öffnen wir Pfade zum Drachenland wie man es bisher nicht erlebt hat. Tarotmethoden, manche direkt inspiriert von diesem Deck, erschliessen seine Wunder.

Aktuell ist das Deck noch ein ‘work in progress’. Es wird nach einer Crowdfunding-Kampagne im Frühjahr/Frühsommer veröffentlicht werden.

Heute zur Eröffnung der Website für dieses Deck zeigen wir drei Bilder aus den Großen Arkana.Jedem Bild ist ein Vers beigegeben in einer Form, die der nordisch-angelsächsischen Hrynhent angenähert ist, passend für unsere rätselhaften und wundersamen Drachen.

Auf dieser Website informieren wir ab jetzt über unsere Fortschritte in unserer Arbeit an dem Deck und, wenn es soweit ist, über die Crowdfunding-Kampagne. Informieren lassen kann man sich auch direkt in die eigene Mailbox durch unseren Newsletter. Hier kann man sich dafür anmelden.

Celebrating the Magick of Dragons

The Starlight Dragon Deck is the exciting, collaborative tarot-creation work by Steph Engert (conception/texts) and Nora Huszka (conception/images). Fired by dragons and our creativity we take you on a journey to dragon-land never experienced before. Tarot methods, some specifically inspired by this deck, will further unlock its wonders for you.

The deck is  currently in the making and will be published in late spring/early summer 2016 after a crowdfunding campaign.

Today, we are showing three images of the Major Arcana as a first teaser.  Each Image is accompanied by a verse in a form approximating old Norse/Anglo-Saxon Hrynhenda, which is so fitting to these mysterious creatures:

XVII

Draco, dancing – neversetting

Star snake sov’reign – of our zodiac

XIX

Central Star – life source, splendour

I sing sublime celebration

XIII:
Dragon of Kur – killing by glance

Lapis Lady – Water of Life

This website will bring to you all the news about the ongoing work on this deck and the crowd-funding campaign to make it happen (later this spring).
