About this blog

This deck is overpowering, intense, complex, symbol city, the systems are totally endless. This deck goes on and on, there is no end to it. The Cards them selves are like a tunnel that doesn't end. Like a worm hole. I have found that some tarot lovers keep the the deck stored and only bring it out of the closet once in a blue moon, due to that it is too busy for them to read from. If your one of these people please join the study group.

To understand each card one must look at them differently than other cards from different decks. This was my first step. This deck has a strange way of communicating to it's reader, I have tried this strange method on friends, family, and strangers. to see the results.

With success!

IronSides's Method for reading the Medieval Scapini Tarot Deck.

I have been inspired for many years by Mary K. Greer's books, that through her personal wisdom has taught me so much more with understanding the Tarot. These are Mary K, Greer's books that have help me decode Scapini's symbols, 21 ways to Read a Tarot - Step 13, pg 129; Tarot Reversals - Traditional meanings that help me put keywords to the symbols. Tarot for yourself - helped me work through reader block, which guided me to finding my method on how to read the cards, simple and easy. Without these books over the past 7 yrs I would have been lost to ever understanding or ability to even read this deck. I strongly feel that Mary k. Greer deserves some credit here, and that I will give her. you will find that I will be posting quotes through out this blog from her books for reference only to help you understand the Scapini's deck.

  1. It's always fun to compare what others see in the same cards. For example, today's card for me is the 9 of Wands (Scapini Tarot is my go-to, all-time favorite deck). What I see when I look at this card, is repose, relaxation, "having a beer" after a hard day's work. The rainbow of colors are happiness, especially now that they're on shore and having a bit of "R & R". The galley ships are leaving, not arriving, so they've picked up a new crew while the other one is ashore on their R & R.

    So, my interpretation of the 9 of Wands is that of a much needed vacation or time of relaxation after a time of strenuous work. The time frame of day, days, weeks, or months of work (at work or in a business) would be determined by other cards.

    Your way of seeing the 3D in these cards opened me up to this deck well over a year ago. Prior to that I just couldn't figure them out, until I found your blog and this method of seeing the cards. This made it much easier - thank you!
