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):
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:
The Emperor as the emblem for the TarotCon and the Star grace our information flyer and set the scene for our highly creative conference
Stay tuned, another card will be revealed shortly!

To mark the next stage of manifestation for our work of love we introduce to you today the first set of pip cards – the Fours from all the four suits.
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:
Draco, dancing – neversetting
Star snake sov’reign – of our zodiac
Central Star – life source, splendour
I sing sublime celebration
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).
