The Magus - Rolla Nordic Tarot
Over the past few years, my perspective on The Fool/Le Mat/La Fou has changed a lot. This card is from the Rolla Nordic Tarot, and she considered it to be the true Magus of the Tarot. I'm beginning to see her point, in that within the Fool is the entire realm of all possibilities (she called Trump I "The Juggler", which fits well with my growing understanding of TI as misdirection.) As Gandalf told Frodo, “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off too.”  Is it more foolish to leave home in Quest/Journey, and learn our lessons, or to remain there, "safe and secure" in ignorance? After all, "ignorance is bliss" as well.
As you may have guessed, Babbling Brooke Readings is getting a facelift. It’s taken some time, and honestly, longer than we had anticipated, but it’s “mostly complete” and the site is up and running. Thanks

Seattle Psychics Association

Today's quarterly online Seattle Psychics Association Professional Development Retreat just finished up, and it was a fun event. I normally do not get to attend for the full day, but this week was an exception, for which I'm very happy. All of the presentations were great and informative. N'mier LaVeau: Presented a talk on the…

More storage ideas

Early on, I had linked to a video about using a train case/makeup case for use while traveling or working. I use one of these myself, but I have many more decks that won't easily fit into the one. I recently had a birthday, and was gifted with an aluminum storage case, which I filled fairly…

Winding down, gearing up

Long day is winding down, everyone else went to bed two hours ago. I’ve been enjoying the solitude, and reading “CBD Tarot De Marseille” by Dr. Yoav Ben-Dov. I also have a couple of his other books. I purchased his restoration of Conver Tarot de Marseille some time back, along with the books, but hadn’t…

Some changes, recent and upcoming

Our rates page is back online. During the worst of the pandemic, we shuttered the business side of things, and even though Washington state is back under a mask mandate, we are all fully vaccinated and continue to practice social distancing as necessary. 1. Presently, rates for readings are $25 per hour or part thereof.…

The Bohemian Method

The “Bohemian” Method As learned from Judith McNally (Lady Siobhan, Order of the Silver Wheel, NYWTW), who may have learned it from Rolla Nordic, as they were close friends.   This method is one of the most specific I have ever used.  It fills in a lot of blanks. Your significator is taken out first…

The Hoi Polloi Tarot

The Hoi Polloi Tarot was one of the first decks I ever bought, following the disastrous purchase of “Zolar’s Astrological Tarot Fortune Telling Cards”. Until I found the Albano-Waite deck, it was my go-to for most of my studies, as it seemed like every book on the market back then used the Waite-Smith ("Rider-Waite") as…

Lost & Found

After having been missing for over a year, one of my oldest Tarot decks, my Miniature Albano-Waite Tarot, resurfaced today, on the top of my dresser. Where my glasses live at night, and I see every day. The copyright on this deck is 1968, it's the second printing of Frankie Albano's recoloring of the Waite-Smith…

Wild Kuan Yin Oracle for the day

It's been a while since I posted a daily pull. Life has been ... quarrelsome of late, and I've been neglecting many things. I can see a glimmer that may be the light at the end of the tunnel. Or, it may be just an oncoming train. Time will tell.

Some recent additions

I've increased my inventory of decks and books. Here are some of them: The Game of Hope: This deck is a facsimile of the original Game of Hope cards published in 1799. The deck was initially conceived as a parlor game to be played with dice. Fifty years later the cards were…

Tarot storage ideas

The question comes up on pretty often on every Tarot Social Media forum that I'm on, asking how to store your decks when you're on the road, or working in a shop. A lot of us use train/makeup cases. Here's a video demo of one such case, courtesy of Celt Heart, on YouTube: Hope…

Kuan Yin Oracle

While I own several dozen Tarot decks, I'm not all that fond of oracle decks. In fact, until just recently, I only owned two. I purchased this deck on something of a whim, back in 2016 - I honestly don't recall why. It arrived, I glanced at it, and set it on a table, from…

Rolla Nordic

Rolla Noric (Muriel Berulfsen) Photograph courtesy of Adam West-Watson Rolla Nordic was a pseudonym of Murielle Doris Berulfsen (née Baker), (2 Dec 1898 - 14 Sep 1995)1 2 3 Nordic was an accomplished author, teacher, a designer of tarot cards, practitioner of divination by several means, including rune stones as well as Tarot; and under the…

27-2-2020 – The Two Of Cups

Today's draw comes from the Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls , which is technically a Tarot card game by Mathew Lowes and illustrated by Josephe Vandale. Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls launched with a hugely successful Kickstarter and has inspired it own line of Labyrinth of Souls fiction written by an incredible lineup of veteran and award-winning authors…

The best part of waking up?

So, there I am, in bed, rubbing my eyes trying to wake up, as I do most mornings, listening to the incoming alert vibrations coming from my cell phone. These sounds go one for a few moments, and,  once they stop, I reach over and pick up the device and open my email and begin…

Almost ready

We are now in the last stages of setup before we can finally be officially open! It will be wonderful to finality change the message on the phone number to something other than "we're sorry we cannot take you call at this time." The paperwork for the State is complete, we are waiting for the…

Inversion Tarot

Speaking of concept decks, this arrived today. I'd forgotten that I ordered it! (Much as I recently wound up with two copies of a Gypsy Oracle deck, although in that instance one was listed as "cards" whole the other was listed as "book", so it can be excused. I was going to return one,…

Getting closer

More work on the website today, most of it behind the scenes, which should be mostly invisible to you, the visitor. Today's card is the Seven of Pentacles, and matches well the question of "Ashleigh, Ashleigh, how does your garden grow?" While I liked the concept of the "Mystik" theme, it just had…

16 Dec 2019 – Daily Draw

Card of the day: Seven of Swords (Futility) Description: A man in the act of carrying away five swords rapidly; the two others of the card remain stuck in the ground. A camp is close at hand. Smith-Waite (Rider-Waite) Tarot image of the Seven of Swords. Meaning: An opportunity to withdraw from a hopeless situation and…

Albano-Waite deck (a video)

The Frankie Albano edition of the Waite-Smith deck has long been a favorite of mine. I'm exceedingly fond of the miniature version, which fits comfortably in my hand as is easily portable. Sadly, I recently learned that my oldest copy of this deck has been damaged by something being spilled on it, and so I'm…

Sola-Busca & Waite-Smith Tarot

An interesting comparison of one of the oldest Tarot decks, with the Waite-Smith deck. In 1907 the Busca-Serbelloni family sent from Milano to British Museum the black and white photographs of the complete Sola-Busca Tarot deck, perhaps at the request of the same Museum. Shortly ther… Source: Sola-Busca & Waite-Smith Tarot | SOLA-BUSCA TAROT MAYER…

About rates

I’ve had a couple of folks ask about my rates.

For other settings, see the rate schedule, which is always…

On Tarot Decks

Over the years that I have been reading Tarot, I have used many decks, from the Smith-Waite ("Rider-Waite") to David Palladini's "Aquarian Tarot", and numerous others. My very first deck was The Zolar Astrological Tarot, which is a strange Chimera indeed. It is a double-sided deck of 56 cards that touts itself as 'four decks…

Reading at OLOTEAS in November

Unless something untoward happens, I will be available for readings during the November OLOTEAS event on 23 November 2019, probably between 3  PM and 5 PM.   EDIT TO ADD: Due to health issues, this did not take place.

Hello, again.

  The Tarot has sometimes been described as "The Fool's Journey. It may also be an apt descriptor for attempting to launch a business venture during the tailing stages of a Mercury Retrograde period as well. :D Welcome back (if you've been here before) to the reconstructed edition of our website.…
