December 7th Psychic Sunday

December 7th Psychic Sunday

Come in from the cold and into our Psychic Fair!  On December 7th you’ll find six intuitive readers, each a specialist in either Tarot, Runes, Bone or Palm readings. We also have Astrology Charts and all the good energy items the Eye has to offer. Of course, you can do some holiday shopping before, between and after your readings, we’ll have our store stocked.

Bring a friend along to Eye of Horus (910 W Lake St, Mpls 55408) and sample our readers as they take over every spare nook and cranny of our store for the last Psychic Fair of the year. Mini-readings are $2 per minute and booked every 15 minutes, with a 10 minute minimum and a 15 minute maximum so you have time to try different reader styles. Book two or more readings in advance and save $5.

2 for 1 special

On Psychic Sunday, you can get two Readings for the Price of one! How? If you book two readings, and keep them to 10 minutes each at the time of the reading, then your bill is only $40. But you can make that $35 by getting the $5 off by booking more than one reading in advance.  Our basic readings are $35 on any other day of the year, but if you are savvy and do two 10 minute readings you book in advance you get a twofer! Think of it, you can have two readers to review your question for $35. (Or get two 15 minute readings for $55, if you want all the details.)

To save, you have to book advance! Call 612-872-1292 or us links below

Chrysalis Tarot Suits

Chrysalis Tarot is a 78 card tarot deck with art by Holly Sierra and a little white book by Toney Brooks. The theme of the chrysalis, that of transformation is what this deck is about because it gives a fresh perspective on the paths and meanings of the tarot.  Instead of traditional, it is flexible, working with myth in a modern way. That is, it draws its images from a variety of mythologies most familiar to modern seekers and tarot readers.  You will find deities and spirits represented such as Herne, Kali, Ariadne, the Green Man, Psyche and even Papa Legba.

There is a full range of mythological creatures as well: a Pheonix, a Unicorn, aDragon, a Pegasus, a Pirate (Corsair). All the images of the Chrysalis Tarot are anything but typical or traditional, yet they are familiar to anyone who is versed in fantasy or mythology.  It is refreshing to see some diversity here, both in the myths and the cultures, though I’m sure purists would object to having such a jambalaya of references and peoples. But this modern mix of mysteries and archetypes both big and small is what makes this deck refreshingly appropriate for today’s tarot reader. We are familiar with and inspired by different cultures, and with such a strong artistic voice, they do somehow seem to work together.

The four suits that make up the Minor Arcana in the Chrysalis Tarot are:

  • Mirrors (Cups) – theme color blue
  • Stones (Pentacles) – theme color green
  • Spirals (Wands) – theme color gold or yellow
  • Scrolls (Swords)- theme color purple

The Court Cards stand out a bit with a frame around the figure, and again, they are anything but typical.  All of them are well, friendly, and familiar enough to work with. The Chrysalis tarot is just a visual delight overall and generally full of pleasant thematic surprises.

The Chrysalis Tarot is available from the online Tarot Shop at or in our Minneapolis Store. We even have a demo deck if you stop into the store, as we do for most decks. You can even get the Chrysalis Tarot as an app, though we haven’t tried that out. We tend to prefer actual cards at the Eye.
