I got the most hilarious divination kit ever at Toys R Us yesterday for $3. (60% off clearance – I guess no one was buying them. I nearly went back and got a second one, for that cheap.)

It has a pendulum!


The pendulum has a magnet in the board and in one end, so they repel each other. And the pendulum sticks to the board if you set it down. Which is hilarious.


It has a weird fortune-telling Cootie Catcher thing. (Uh, my roommate stuck the stickers in it in the car on the way home. He’s the one who wrote ‘Fuck you’ on one. >_>)


But the best part is the Tarot deck.


It comes with a mat with I guess the only spread you, the preteen girl intended audience, is supposed to use. For some reason it’s a Star of David.


The cards are bright blue and hot pink, and have past/present/future definitions written on the tops of the Major Arcana. It’s unclear what you’re supposed to take them to mean if they show up as Your Wish/Their Wish. They kind of gave up after the Major Arcana and the court cards and the other Minor Arcana are just cards with suits.


The booklet doesn’t say any difference between the suits in meaning. It has a tiny blurb for each number, and that’s it. Also, there’s a ~Magic Twist~: All of the cards say on the back what they are, so you can amaze your friends by reading their fortune without turning the cards over.


My favorite card is Death, which is just kind of amazing. 


The booklet also contains gems like the claim that Tarot is ‘thousands of years’ old, and that ‘cavemen’ probably used pendulums to make decisions (?!). All three games have special “magic twist” instructions for how to cheat and amaze your friends.

Best $3 ever.

My roommate has declared that I have to do “one of those spreads that takes the whole deck” for him with it. Because I am lazy, I’m not going to find anything that extreme, but I will do the Pyramid Tree Of Life which takes like 24 cards because why the hell not.

*grabby hands*

you don’t understand

this deck (and the similar dollar store deck) are on my wish list



…….should I go look or……

I really love the art on that deck…

Edit: It’s no longer listed on their website and I can only find things about how terrible and evil these things and the Ouija boards are when I look them up. I am no sad and that probably explains why it was on clearance…

Nooo! I was totally going to look this up online.

I have this deck, but I let my girls play with it, so it is pretty beat up now, and missing some cards. I think you can still buy it online, look up the Wishcraft Tarot, they have a website that lists how to buy it. here is the site here is a listing on Amazon.

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.
