The Pre-Raphaelite Tarot

The Pre-Rapahaelite Tarot
Lo Scarabeo
I'm delighted to add this deck to my collection.  I have a fondness for Pre-Raphaelite art and also enjoy the work of artist Giuliano Costa who also created the Mystical Tarot (another favourite of mine) so this deck is a real treat for me.

There is so much detail and symbolism in each card and I enjoy noticing the little details which aren't always what they seem at first glance or those which appear in a different way in another card.

The artwork on the backs of the cards make these my most favourite of all.  They are not reversable which may bother some but to be honest that never features in my mind as a concern, and I do read reversals.  The image is so detailed, with a large percentage of it in mirror image, that the difference doesn't immediately stand out.

It's a lovely deck and one i'll receive a great amount of pleasure from.

May beckons.

What does May hold for us? The guidance offered for the month ahead by the card the Ten of Summer is to enjoy the company of others and embrace the moments that allow you to be carefree and happy, even if for a short while. This may be the nudge you need to create these moments for yourself this month - so plan that picnic in the forest or fun day out at the beach. Seek out ways to bring the joy of playtime, laughter and love into your life this month. Take that boat out for a paddle, fly that kite, dust off the swingball set, roll down a grassy slope with your children - whatever you do - have fun and most of all be a little bit silly.

The Mermaid Tarot

I've been so looking forward to this deck arriving, a lovely belated birthday gift bought for me on pre-order and i'm not disappointed.

It is a joyful and beautiful deck, following the Rider Waite system and although there are a few cards which take a different approach to the traditional imagery they are easily recognisable and offer additional perspective.

The deck is by Leeza Robertson, illustrated by Julie Dillon and published by Llewellyn.  The book is in colour with full page images of each card.  The cards are borderless and glossy but not unbearably so.



If you enjoy decks like The Everyday Witch Tarot or Green Witch Tarot then i'm pretty certain you will enjoy this deck too.

I will be using this deck for the month of March so keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram  for regular postings.

The Enchanted Tarot

The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber
A gift from my lovely hubby earlier this week. Sometime in 1998/99 I used the computer/website version of this deck because getting my hands on Tarot decks in South Africa wasn't so easy and they were quite expensive. It's a deck that has been on and off my wishlist several times over the years. So excited to open this up and explore later today.
