I love how the hand-poured wax seals make every deck an individual!

I am super excited–and proud–to announce the release of my first tarot deck, The Beautiful Rebellion Tarot! This interdependently publish deck is now available through my Etsy shop, ModernMysticRLC, in a limited edition run. Nearly a third of the 300 decks printed for this first edition run have sold through pre-orders (squee of joy!), and those orders were released into the world yesterday and are their way to their new homes.

Guys, this is such a huge accomplishment for me. I’ve been reading and collecting tarot for over two decades now (aaaaand I just made myself feel real old right there). It has been a passion of mine for just about as long as I can remember, and putting together this deck using such stunning artwork–another long-standing interest of mine–was such a wonderful, enriching experience. I am beyond excited to see how much love this deck has received in the months leading up to its release, and I can only imagine how much it will grow from here. (I’ve caught wind that there might be an unofficial “When Will Robin Need to Start a Second Edition” pool going among some local tarot readers already as well…)

Pre-Order Weekend (as July 28th and 29th of 2018 will now forever been known in our house) was a blast and went much smoother than I anticipated. (Take that, Mercury!) My wonderful husband, now dubbed Mr. Modern Mystic, pitched in for deck wrapping as I wax-sealed each deck. His hand-tied handy work was much appreciated and, I dare say, he did a better job that I could have done. With his aid, and the helping hands of my best buddies, we got all 90 decks up and out yesterday morning, and I can’t imagine having done it without them!

Mr. Modern Mystic is my hero for many reasons. His dedication to helping me with this deck is just one of them!

Yup–for those with keen eyes, that is Critical Role playing on the TV while we worked. Critter love knows no obstacles–even a 6ft table stacked high with tarot decks!

And there she is–my personally curated, lovingly created, artsy-fartsy hand-made tarot deck. I all who purchase her love her as much as I do. I may be a tarot slut from way back, but this beauty has stolen my heart and I just can’t seem to put her down!

Copies of the deck are still available in my Etsy shop, and will also be available in my person for my NJ natives at the Soul Journey Release Party┬áin Butler, NJ on Saturday September 8th. I will be attending and offering tarot readings at this year’s Ninefold Festival in Colorado Springs, CO and will have a small stock of decks available there as well.

PHEW! And that’s all for today’s announcements. Today I am a happy indie author/artist–but y’all know I can’t sit still for long! So, what’s next?

Another book or two, a hardcover art-style guidebook for The Beautiful Rebellion Tarot, another tarot deck (this one dedicated to shadow work, using vintage photography and a collage/scrapbook style) down the line… I have lots of creative goodies in the works and hope to be coming back to you soon with some new announcements and release dates!

In the mean time, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your love and support.

Oh! And its National Coffee Day, so–ya know–its just going to be a great day all around. (And since I’m sipping my Tim Horton’s from my Iron coffee mug, it’s pretty much perfection to a little ol’ caffeine fiend like me.)

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it and hope you enjoy reading about Caitlin’s adventures as much as I did writing about them!
