Ok, first of all..I don't know the name of the tarot deck I am looking for. I do believe it comes with both deck and book. A former friend of mine had it..and, I found it once for sale at Borders book store, however, that was years ago and I have not seen it since.

If I saw the front cover of it, I would know it.

I will try to be as detailed as possible, though, not sure it will help. I am not positive how many tarot's come..as far as book and deck. I am only really interested in finding this specific one, as, it has deep sentimental meaning to me.
Anyway, the box opens..from the top. It doesn't open like a crayon box does...it actually slides right off when you pull up on it and it totally dislocated from the box itself. I do believe the color scheme has a majority of browns, maybe some greens.

I know tarots are mostly related to the pagan/wiccan religion, however, I swear that I recall this specific deck having an exact name of such. Like, the Pagan Tarot or the Wiccan Tarot.

It's NOT The Witch's Tarot, and the Pagan Tarot I have found is not the same. I think I found a Wiccan Tarot deck too but..it's not it either.

To be more specific..and if I could remember the identity of the card that would probably help MY search better...I recall one very specific card the most (and for good reason..and the main reason I want the tarot.) There's a story behind it but, I am tired and don't want to get into it.

The card itself..has a picture of a woman, I do believe a younger lady perhaps..possibly with blonde hair. I think in her left hand (it might be her right, but, I can't recall. She is holding a mirror. I think she is anyway. If she is, the mirror is...er, can't recall the shape..but it's rectangular I think and appears to be afixed to the side of a slender pole. Either that or, the Mirror is just to her side. Either way, the Mirror overlaps her slightly. Potrayed within the mirror....is a phoenix. (No..this card is not the sake of my name..I actually have been going by this name since I was 15..I didn't come across this tarot deck until 4 years later).

I told my boyfriend about it, he thinks it sounds like either a Empress or a Priestess card..but, I wouldn't totally count on that.

If SOMEONE out there could PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! help me identify/find this tarot deck (complete, full...everything that comes with it) I'd sure be grateful!

If you have the deck..please show me a picture! If the card sounds any sort of familiar, please show me a picture! I'd know the card anywhere if I saw it!

Before anyone goes into anything of the sort..I've attempted to do searches for the tarot deck..and have not ever found it. I've tried doing specified searches for the card...can't find it. Trust me, I've tried. I've looked at sites that sell....a hugemongous inventory of tarot decks......and I've never found it.

So please, if someone out there knows of it..could you please help me? I can't honestly believe it's so rare that it's unfindable! It's not as old/rare as other things on the net and I can usually find anything!

When (about) did you see it ? I immediately thought Druidcraft - but no mirror.... A date would help....

I'm betting on an Empress, who often bears a shield with an eagle....

Anything on this page ring a bell ?

Still searching - I get obsessive....

Gregory, what an absolutely wondeful site!  Who maintains it? 

Phoenix, look under High Priestess for the Lo Scarabeo deck.

Sure - except for the Phoenix ! There isn't one ! (I looked at HP first !)

I do think it was an Empress card, on account of that - I suspect it is actually an eagle we are talking about rather than a phoenix !

Have you never seen the site before ? It's brilliant - AND - he has taken the trouble to get permission to post the cards and give credit ! NOT the norm ! it belongs to Thomas Albi Deuter.

Trust me, I get obsessive too. I saw the Druidcraft tarot..wasn't that one. I'd say..2004 or 2005?

About the empress..it's not a shield and it's not an eagle lol. It's flat out a mirror and a phoenix.

Nothing on the website you linked me..atleast that page, looks familiar. However, I will bookmark it and take another look at all the other cards. I don't remember them all, just a few and mainly the one I talked about.

I'm 100% positive it was a phoenix.

It wouldn't be the Faery Wicca Tarot, would it? I don't have the deck so can't scan any of the cards in, but I found one online that sounds similar to what you're describing. The Strength of Will card is pictured at this site:

DEAR PEOPLE, I thank you for all your help, and I have found it! I do believe someone linked me to the aeclectic.net website. I went through every page...was losing hope..THEN, I came across the W's. I saw one card that looked familiar..so I went and looked it up.

I was correct, the name DID have Wicca in it.

One this I was wrong about, the girl was not blonde, she had orangish hair. I remember it being blonde.

That aside.

The whole kit'n'kaboodle is called the Wicca Pack.

And, as proof that I am not going crazy lol. (more typed below!)



it doesn't state high priestess or empress..so, I was not for sure on that one.
 http://strangerealms.multiply.com/photos/album/32/Wicca_Pack#photo=41 that is the website that has every single card in that deck listed. SO GLAD I FOUND IT!

But yes. The first time I was given a reading with this deck..out of all the cards face down, I was asked to pick out 5. Out of those 5, still face down..and mind you...I'd never seen them before..I was asked to pick 3 that I felt a strong draw too.
I know for sure, one of the other ones was This one, but, I can't remember if the other was was this one or this one.
Out of those 3..I was asked to pick 1. The guy set that one card face down, and read to me about the other two, and how they relate to me.

When he turned this card over, I swear I nearly fell out of my chair.

In the circle I was in at the time, Garrison, there was a gal there that went by the name of Phoenix Vai. Now..I've always been very territorial of the name Phoenix..in relation to my knowing other people. I refuse to call anyone else, other than myself, by that name. At circle that night, our elder told "Phoenix Vai"...who..even shares my legal name IRL (funny, cause I never get along with people who share my name..so that makes 2 for her)..he told her that she might think she associates with the phoenix, but...I'm more associated with it than her. And, then we went into the whole story about the card. I don't think she was very happy, but..whatever.

Sad to say, our little circle wasn't one big happy family. I greatly despised that woman..with a passion..and not just for the names.

But yeah, anyway, there's me card and I'm not crazy! Sorry about the mix up detail with the hair but..and I just noticed, she's holding a mask to her face. I never noticed that before. I thought that went to the mirror. I believe it's because the mask color blends in so well with her skin. And, I did say the mirror overlapped her a bit, that was vice versa but..I think I got the majority of it. It's been a very long time since I've seen it. Now I'm happy cause I know what tarot to go after!

Thanks again everyone for your help!

Ah ! Well - yes, aeclectic is great; But that is an oracle deck - so - I wouldn't have known anyway !!!

I am glad you found it though ! And it should be findable; if you want one - I found a few listings but they could be just the book.

I've been following this thread with interest and after reading your 'EUREKA' post above was just about to express my amazement at Gregory not recognizing (and possessing) any tarot, when her reply appeared. That explains it then! I hadn't ever seen this card either - it's pretty fantastical - she looks so like a High Priestess.

Congrats on remembering the details so well, Phoenix, sometimes memory seems to transform things almost beyond recognition. And glad you found your Phoenix so I can stop searching the little grey cells for some vesige of a blonde lady with a mirror reflecting one!

Well - see the thread about the Mystical deck - it was debra who noticed it was using images from elsewhere - I completely missed it and so, even, did Adam :bl.
