As you know, I love the tarot - it is comforting, validating, and inspiring. While in Eugene visiting my daughter last year I bought the Moden Witch Tarot Deck by Lisa Sterle.
Some of the cards are exceptional, some seem like she was just trying to complete the 78 images. The cards are printed on plastic, so a very large deck for my small hands, and unwieldy to shuffle. Plus they won't get that lovely worn-out feel like paper cards. Nice interpretations in the LWB (little white book, but this one is blue). Below is a picture of the three cards I drew plus what she writes:
"XII: The Hanged One - True peace can only come from within. The Hanged One has found this inner zen in what seems like an unusual place. She hangs from the tree of life in a comfy sweater and equally comfy sweatpants. Maybe she seems a little odd, hanging upside down and perfectly poised, but she;'s also calm. The Hanged One is just simply relaxed and at peace.
Finally, it's the calm after the storm. You might have just had some tough battles or obstacles to conquer, but now it's time to relax a bit. Meditate, slow down, nurture your body and soul. You might have to sacrifice something in order to reach the state of zen, but don't worry. There's no right or wrong way to do it. It may even feel like your self-care routine is a little strange to others, but this process is crucial for you to embrace who you are and to Free yourself of other's expectations and demands."
"Three of Wands - Standing solidly on Earth, you've got your wands for support and you're contemplating your plans. You're working hard and getting ready for the future. It's working! You've got a solid strategy, so all you need to do now is put it into action. "
"The Sun - With sunshine comes new life. An innocent child, full of carefree joy and happiness, waves a red banner high in the sky. behind her, a gray wall is her past, and the flowers of memories Bloom and thrive in the Sun. There's wonderful and warm everywhere. The sun has turned the day into a promising playground ready for exploration. It's a time to feel totally alive.
Winter (2020) is over. The world is lush and full of excitement and beauty. Bask in the sunlight, embrace life! You might have just stumbled upon a big discovery or revelation that's astonishing, amazing and helps you see things in a new and beautiful way. This new perspective is the result of your hard inner and outer work, and now it's time for the reward. So treat yourself! Do something fun, have an adventure, the days are yours to fill with childlike wonder and optimism."
Italics are mine, to re-emphasize - This new perspective is the result of your hard inner and outer work. To all my clients - I am so proud of you, I know you are on your path and I am both grateful and humbled to witness and be a part of your process.
