The Empyrean Key Tarot Reiki Astrology Classes Writing About Schedule Testimonials






Aeclectic Tarot
My personal favorite! Aeclectic lists over 1000 (yes, count them) decks, most with sample cards to view, reviews, and links to buy! Message boards, interviews, tarot card meanings, and info on tarot books all add up to make this an indispensable tarot site! Browse decks by almost any conceivable theme, publisher or characteristic.

American Tarot Association
The ATA is a professional networking organization for anyone interested in tarot. They offer classes, free readings and virtual conferences. If you join, you can sign up to give free readings and gain valuable experience! Their Resources tab lists tons of great tarot sites!

Facade allows you to do tarot readings, runes, I Ching and use other interesting divinatory tools--no charges here, everything's free. And, for the People-fans out there, read readings about your favorite celebrities!! For your own reading, you can pick from one of about 20 decks, including the Minchiate deck which is based on a 16th century deck with 97 cards, adding in cards for the Zodiac, Virtues and elements above and beyond the standard Trumps. The readings are computer generated, but I've found them to be just as unique as doing my own readings (such as that mysterious process of getting the same card over and over). It provides a basic interpretation for you, but of course, doing a bit of your own work with the reading will reap great rewards.

Llewellyn Journal
This is Llewellyn's online journal. They feature articles on many Llewellyn subjects, including Tarot.

Renna Shesso

My friend and colleague Renna Shesso's site on Shamanism and Tarot. Don't miss her amazing book, Math for Mystics

Sacred Texts
This site provides the complete e-texts of a number of very important and influential tarot writings from some of the great occult scholars. Read A. E. Waite's The Pictorial Key to the Tarot, S. L. MacGregor Mathers' The Tarot, and many others! A great way to deepen your knowledge.

Tarot Garden
A database of over 1500 decks (who know there were so many decks??); a library full of articles, collector's decks, games and more; and of course a boutique to purchase decks and tarot-related gifts!

Tarot Hermeneutics

This is my friend and colleague Paul Nagy's site. He focuses on a very academic style of Tarot exegesis called Tarot hermeneutics, in which correlations are drawn between two disparate texts, in this case, between the Tarot cards and spiritual or literary texts. I personally have found the hermeneutical style to be highly effective for triggering the receiving of inner knowledge, or gnosis. I can highly recommend this practice for those wishing to expand knowledge well beyond the limits of the norm.

Tarot Today
This is the homesite of Scott Womack's Today's Tarot Podcast!! Definitely check it out and take a listen; you'll learn a lot and the music is really otherworldly.

Tarot Update
Sign up here for Llewellyn's Tarot e-newsletter, Tarot Update. Excerpts from Llewellyn titles, featured decks and sale decks, Tarot author events and links. 

Concentrates on the origin and history of the Tarot.

This is Adam McLean's awe-inspiring site on alchemy. He shares a huge number of primary source documents that cover all aspects of this chemical and spiritual practice.

Not to be missed is Rafi Metz's fabulous site. You can get lost for hours here exploring and discovering Kabbalah and Tarot, yoga, astrology, etc etc. Overwhelmingly full of incredible information!


This is Rabbi Ginsburgh's comprehensive site on kabbalah in the Hebraic tradition. I find his explications of the Hebrew letters to be powerfully revealing.

Theoi Greek Mythology

This is an indispensable source on the Greek myths, providing for every entry concise overviews supported by excerpts from primary texts. It's brilliantly easy to navigate, wonderfully illustrated, and deliciously comprehensive.

For Heaven's Sake

4383 Tennyson Street, #1F, Denver, CO  80212.

Herbs & Arts
Great selection of books, lots of herbs and of course, lots of tarot decks. Great and knowledgeable staff. I was told they would open decks for perusal, because, as the owner told me, "it's not like an adept packaged it." Bonus points for funny--and on the mark! 2015 E. Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80206.

Isis Books
I had this site listed on my tarot syllabus as fantastic store that sells decks online. Imagine my surprise when the Denver Tarot Meetup's first field trip meeting was there, AND at the time it was only two miles away from my house. You sometimes forget that the virtual world is grounded in the real world, and I had no idea these were one and the same store. The online site shows an uncountable number of decks. You can see 6 sample cards per deck, full size with plenty of details. And if you go there in person, you can choose from a huge selection of decks in stock. 2775 South Broadway, Englewood, CO, 80113.

Shining Lotus Metaphysical Bookstore

They have a great selection of new decks, including some interesting historical ones, but my favorite thing about this store is the wonderful selection of used books and decks in the back. 2178 S. Colorado Blvd., Denver, CO 80222.

Not a huge selection of decks, but a playful atmosphere, and their open sample (full) decks and comfy chairs to relax in make this a first-choice for deck perusal and purchase. Not to mention the great people! They'll special order anything they don't have in stock. 3301 E. Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80206.

Tattered Cover
A very small selection of decks, but the "cool" factor for this independent community bookstore is sky-high. Of course, they can order anything that's not on the shelves. Colfax: 2526 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO 80206; LoDo: 1628 16th Street, Denver, CO 80202; Highlands Ranch: 9315 Dorchester Street, 80129.
