I'll second sapienza with this suggestion.

Just an observation:
I've been Tarot Study Groups moderator for a few years now and one thing I've noticed is that study groups who put rules on when to post and the order of cards to study soon fizzle out.

Posting once a week is fine but if there is a set rule that says a new card should be posted on XXXXXX day, folks get fed up waiting for the day they can post and lose interest.

My advice is to post a new card whenever you like, if you're having trouble with a card, post a thread on it....
Oh and let me know when you do so's I can index it

There's already a thread for that card so post your insight up there and let's get goin'! I'm so excited. This card has a lot of "old tyme" imagery so there will be lots of research involved. Hee hee.
The Fool thread was posted some time ago: http://www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=96434

Thanks Sulis Your ideas make a lot of sense. There seems to be quite a lot of interest in this deck just now so I think this approach will work very well.

Cool Ten of vessels (cups)


OK - I'm going to suggest we look at this card because it bothers me. I'm not sure how to post a new discussion thread to make sure it gets added to the study group.

I actually don't have much to say about it other than, compared to all the other Place artwork, I find this card quite plain - in terms of colours and imagery. I like the interconnectedness of the vessels, but it doesn't fill me with the excitement I get from other decks. The ten of cups is usually one of my favourite cards in a deck.

Anyone interested in looking at this card - and helping me change my mind about it?

I won't get a chance until this afternoon but I'll start a new thread for this card. I'm happy to talk about it and hopefully we can change your mind


ETA - I've now started the thread for the Ten of Vessels....link is here:

It's here! It's here!

My copy of the deck arrived today in the mail. I've taken a look at it and really like the art. But as someone who is completely new to alchemy I'm a little over my head at the moment.

I'll be here reading what everyone else has to say about the cards, but I don't know how much I'll be able to input. I don't know that I'll be do any reading with these until the book comes out!

Neely75, I'm new to alchemy too but I went and brought a couple of books to help me learn it--and at the same time the deck.

I'm highly recommending The Complete Idiot's Guide to Alchemy. As for my other books; I've not started reading them yet.

Thanks Kenny. I actually spent some time this morning searching the web for sites with info on the symbols. I found a few good ones. Thanks for the reference for the book. I actually saw it at a bookshop here a couple of days ago, but didn't even think to pick it up and look at it as I was busy looking for something completely unrelated. Might have to go and have another look.

Hi Neely. The study group here might help as well. Leisa is posting text from the book as we go which is a great help.

Thanks Sapienza. I didn't word my post as well as I could have. I meant I will be reading each card as it is covered in the study group. I've been watching and reading, waiting for my cards to arrive. Now I'll have to start doing some harder work!
