I have exclusively used the Tarot of Trees for the last 2 months. Looking through the deck I an surprised to note, that there were a few cards, that never came up in readings or daily draws:
The Page of Wands
The Wheel of the Year
and the 6 of Pentacles with the 3 Squirrels
Then there were the Queen of Swords,
the Queen of Pentacles
and the 8 of Pentacles, that showed up A LOT!!!!
So this morning I did a meditative “reading” with both these sets of cards……..
What does that tell me? -kind of thing…..
Then I have to name my favourite image of this deck: This award hands down goes to the Hierophant, a beautiful large Tee in its prime standing amid a natural landscape.
I also have a few candidates for the “sour lemon design” award, but the prize goes to the 6 of Cups.
What is this anyway??
A stand that you hang your coats up on and that someone put outside on the lawn for the spring yard sale?
Now the thing is holding up 6 cups of dripping Strawberry ice cream???
You be the judge…….
What I loved about this deck was – shuffling it! : Small, slick – and these beautiful backs!
It was a treat to handle the deck every morning 🙂
However, my shuffle-mania also exposed the decks weakness: The black borders I soooo like are now showing white on the sides, some cards look more “scuffed” than others…..
If I want to preserve the deck for an occasional treat, it is time to put it into its little wooden vintage box and find a place for it among the other decks of my card library.
