Aces from the Elves

Recently a reader named Lada responded to my question “what cards from decks do you want to see?” She was interested in the Aces from the Tarot of the Elves. Lada, here they are! Enjoy!

If there are cards from any Llewellyn or Lo Scarabeo deck that you’d like to see, let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do. Because that’s the kind of gal I am.

Very pretty deck! Lots of beautiful colors and imagery. Thanks for sharing, Barbara, and thanks to Lada for her question. Some pretties to gaze at and ponder…

thank you…all of these images convey to me apprehension concerning accepting the gift being offerred, the ace of cups most notably.

Honestly I see it quite differently, than Lada;

The Character in the Ace of Cups seems to be reaching for the cup, almost she cannot believe what she has been praying for has been offered.

The Woman in the Ace of Pents, seems startled by the hand showing her the “Gift”.

While the Character in the Ace of Swords, seems to me to be in deep meditation, having just summoned the Sword to him, so I don’t see trepidation there, but a need to maintain sacred space till the sword is fully manifest.

I will say however …

I have a great deal of difficulty really connecting to decks done in this media, I gave a friend the Tarot of the Eternal Night for Christmas. To me too many images done in this media look to me like computer generated Zombies. Some images, like the Queen of Cups in the Eternal Night Deck, really transcend this issue; but over all, Im not convinced this media is quite ready for primetime.

I do draw myself and I to prefer traditional media, like Pencil, myself.

Blessings, BB.

I received this deck for Christmas and I find it amazing. It’s easy to connect to the deck while reading the story the author wrote to go with it.

Blessed Be
