Deck and Book Reviews

I love nothing more than to write reviews. Although tarot is my primary cartomantic tool, I also read with Lenormand, Kipper, and other types of oracle decks. If you’d like me to review your tarot or oracle deck, please contact me at benebellwen (at) gmail (dot) com with your query.

To get a sense of my review style, please check out the archive of past deck reviews here:

I also review nonfiction books in the metaphysics, esotericism, occult, spirituality, magic, and New Age categories. Please send book review queries to benebellwen (at) gmail (dot) com.

I ask that physical copies of decks and books be sent to my mailing address, which I will give when you query, so that I can include high-resolution personal photography of your work with my review.



Want to use a snippet of text, disseminate a document I’ve provided for download, or use an image from my site? Go for it.

Although I find it cute when people e-mail me to ask for permission, I’m here to tell you it’s not necessary. You are free to use any image, any amount of text covered under fair use principles, and share any document I’ve provided on this site, and to cause it to be republished if it has already been published here.

If you send me a link to where you’ve used my work, that’d be awesome, mostly to satiate my curiosity.

You may have noticed that I provide lots of downloadable image files, reference material, and more. Some of you might feel moved to insert them into your metaphysical working journals, add my sigil work or correspondence tables to your personal grimoires, etc. and are wondering if that is okay. YES. It’s perfectly fine. Yes, you can take photos of those journals that have included my work and post those photos publicly on your social media or share inclusion of my work in your work via your vlogs. So long as you’re not passing it off as your own original work, I’m happy and honored to be a part of your studies and path, so yes, have at it.

Deity Images in the Public Domain

Any and all drawings I share, ever, that are images of deity, such as any of the images from this album I offer, “Pantheon of Deities,” is in the public domain. I have granted and I do grant any and all works I create that are of deity to the public domain.

That means you can print out, use, copy, even trace and make changes, revisions, or derivatives of, and work with any way at your will any of my images of deity. You may use them for personal or commercial uses–any use whatsoever at your will.

However, I ask that all uses must be respectful. Do not use the images in a way that desecrates deity. Do not use the images in a way that is not in a spiritual or religious context. You’re more than welcome to use the images or your own derivatives of the images in a commercial manner so long as that manner is within a spiritual or religious context.

Miscellaneous Personal Inquiries

Effective recently, I am no longer responding to miscellaneous personal inquiries. Trying to respond to all is impossible and overwhelming. Responding to some but not others felt discriminatory. I try to answer commonly asked questions via blog posts and articles scattered throughout this website, or via videos on my YouTube channel, so please run keyword searches to see if I’ve publicly answered your inquiry. Private, personalized responses about my favorite tarot and oracle decks, reading material I recommend for a beginner or initiate, how to get started on whole signs astrology, whether I read with reversals, or my recommendations for crystals and gemstones, etc. are questions, yes, I used to try to respond to one by one via personal email, but at this point, it’s become impossible. On a slow day, I get about 20 new messages incoming. On an average day, it’s closer to 40. So thank you for your understanding if I don’t respond. =)
