I donāt know about you, but at this time of year I am often asked for a wish list, which I (being a lover of many things) have no trouble providing. In the spirit of dreaming and wishing, I am asking you dear readers to let me know what cards from any Llewellyn or Lo Scarabeo decks you wish to see and Iāll do my best to post them.
Additionally, Iād like to know what is on your tarot wish list, both books and decks.
One dear friend of mine (and fellow blogger) said that the Tarot of the Magical Forest is on her wish list. This is one of my favorite decks (read my full review here), so I thought Iād share some of my favorite cards from this deck. There will be three today and three on Tuesday.
The Tarot of the Magical Forest is a quirky, sweet, Ā and slightly bizarre version of a Rider Waite Smith deck. As such, it can be used easily by anyone familiar with that tradition.
The 3 of Wands is a wistful, beautiful, quietly hopeful image. I love the softness of the ship, which I imagine becomes clearer and clearer as it nears the shore. The frog (per the LWB, it is a frog) seems so small, but it is his intent and focus that will bring the ship home.
The Hierophant just delights me, seeming to be solemn and comical all at the same time. And I am absolutely positive that in the Magical Forest, owls never hunt mice.
The Stars. Whatās not to love about this card? It is so very sweet. The LWB says: By starlight, Pretty Sheep goes to the Magic Lake, āI look at my reflection in the water that I pour and let trickle lightly down the green grass. I renew the magic and hope of the forest.ā
May the stars in the frosty December sky renew the magic and hope in your lives.
