While doing a bit of “tarot windowshopping” (it’s become a hobby lol), I came across a really interesting deck- it’s called the Fablemaker’s Animated Tarot Deck. The pictures on the cards move while you read them!
After a bit of digging around, I found out that the cards move because they are holographic- each card has 8 or so frames that appear while you tilt and move the cards. Certainly makes for engaging readings!
I came across this deck on the maker’s website because I was originally interested in another deck they make- the Adventurer’s Tarot Deck, which is a deck based on D&D. The Adventurer’s deck, although very beautiful, seems like it might be tricky to use in readings, but when I saw this Animated Deck it really jumped out to me- I’ve never seen anything like it!
This is a reallllllly beautiful and magical Tarot Deck Bry! As much as I would loooooove to get it, I know I won’t be able to as it’s too pricey! Ah! Also I am matching with you on that one habit of yours! Tarot & Oracle Window shopping is my go to pass time. I absolutely love exploring more and more decks and secretly praying to The Gods that one day they would be available at the price of vegetables! Hahaha, honestly I know that is not gonna happen for now, so I have made peace with my three tarot decks currently that I have - The Golden Wheel Tarot, Tarot of The Divine and Tarot of Rider Waite. Still, this was a lovely find my Travel Witch!
I feel the same way… I don’t think I could actually read it though it would throw me off in a distraction kind of… Oooo… shiny! Kind of way & I’d sit there watching the cards & forget what the question or subject was
@Solasta_Amore I’m terrible at Window Shopping I wind up with so many things on different wishlists or even in my cart then I have to come back down to earth before I wind up impulse buying them.
Haha, @Siofra_Strega that happens with me too! I seriously dunno how many carts are filled with how many items, in my case! But one thing is serious here - The Buy Now Button, Oh god as in really that’s something equal to a dangerous temptation!
But I still heart browsing witchy stuff online, ones that I probably end up buying in my dreams!
An animated deck would be the coolest thing!!! My son plays D&D and has some animated cards that are so awesome! I would take the animated Tarot EVERYWHERE and tell anyone/everyone about how cool they are!!! THIS IS MY GOAL NOW!!! LOL
OH, I just read the price! Yikes!! I’d have to charge $ to do readings with this just to cover the cost!! lol
This is so fun! As a budding beginner, I think an actual animated card would be amazing to kind of help you learn where to focus on each picture and card… I’m having to do a lot of looking at my guide book right now, and I am finding I miss pieces. I guess it’s all part of the process of learning, but it would be so neat! This is a very cool deck!
@Siofra_Strega Hahaha that’s a good point! And you’re right- I could easily see myself having a blast playing with the cards and making them move too- and never actually get any reading done
@Garnet I feel that, Garnet! If I ever won the lottery I think the money wouldn’t last as long as my wishlist- so many fun and interesting decks out there!
@Amethyst Same! I wonder if the movement would add to readings, offering more inspiration for interpretations- or if, on the other hand, it would distract. Maybe someday one of us will come across the deck and be able to find out!
@MeganB It’s definitely got a “wow” factor going for it- I’ve seen so many amazing interpretations of the Rider Waite style deck over the years, but this is the first animated deck I’ve come across! I wonder if it will be a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing, or if it will kick off a new trend for other holographic decks
@Solasta_Amore Hooray for a fellow deck window shopper- it’s amazing how the time flies when looking at pretty cards, right? And ohhh that’s a wish that we share- makes me think about looking into some prosperity spells specifically for increasing deck money You’ve got three wonderful decks at your service- may they continue to serve you well! Happy reading (and window shopping)!
@Kasandra It is definitely on the higher side of deck prices- my guess is that a lot of it goes into the holographic details, I imagine the materials are pretty pricey! Still- a witch can always hope for a sale (I might be checking back on this one near Black Friday or the holidays haha)
@Heav3n Hahaha they do look like the type of deck to have fun with- so many pretty cards to wiggle around and watch the animations!
@GemRobin76 That’s a creative way to potentially have it pay for itself! Put the deck to work and have it earn its keep
@AileyGrey Agreed! It really caught my eye for its uniqueness- I’m glad you enjoyed seeing it too, Ailey!
@Artemisia There’s a lot to be said for the beauty in the old school styles- nothing wrong with enjoying the classic decks!
Oh… I’m really inclined to put money away for this deck… the more I see it the more I’m intrigued, still not sure that I would actually be able to do the reading but maybe after some time I could once I got past the excitement of watching the cards! Hmmm… time to think about this one because I just purchased an Oracle deck & Tarot deck yesterday
