#1 – Ten of Cups: This card is about emotional contentment, such as reaching that point in a relationship when you know everything is truly going to be all right. There’s always work to do in any endeavor, but you can now see the culmination of your efforts. There is a security and happiness in this card, whether it’s a romantic relationship or a familial one. Since the suit of cups is about creativity and emotions, this card could also be symbolizing the pinnacle of an emotional challenge or hitting a high point in your creative endeavors.

#2 – Page of Swords: The page brings a message, and here it is one of clarity and change. Look to the stars to guide you as they always have, and try to see things for what they truly are. Just as there is a balance here of black and white, keep yourself balanced as you head into the next phase of your life.

#3 – The Hanged Man: Though the name of this card sounds intimidating, it’s probably not what you think! The Hanged Man willingly sacrifices himself in order to gain knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual strength. This card is about letting go and giving up control for the greater good. It can also be suggesting a change in perspective in order to see the world around you in better detail.

This is the card I chose for myself, and it’s so very relevant! Sometimes I really need to let go and listen to what the universe is trying to tell me!

Which card did you pick? Did it mean anything for you? I’d love to know, so feel free to leave me a comment!

Tarot Tuesday! Shadowscapes Review

Hey everyone, and Happy Tuesday! Monday is over with, and it’s time to get on with the rest of the week! One of my personal goals for this week is to do a lot of work with my tarot cards, and that includes getting to know my newest deck: Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Barbara Moore.

I was immediately drawn to this deck when I saw it online simply because it’s so beautiful. Eventually I knew I just had to get it, and the beauty I saw in it on a computer screen was nothing compared to real life! Every single card is absolutely stunning.

There’s such incredible detail and movement in these images, and so much care has been put into them that the meanings practically leap to life as soon as I look at them. The silver metallic trim is a nice touch, and even the backs of the cards are just gorgeous.

Beyond the visual pleasure of this deck, I have to talk about the quality and the setup. I opted for the kit with the larger guidebook. The box has that lovely magnetic closure you find on some decks, with the guidebook on top and the cards recessed underneath. I know some people take their cards out of the original box and put them in something different, but I have too many decks to really justify that. This makes the manufacturer’s box important to me, and I love this one.

The guidebook for this deck is also worth talking about. There’s always some general information in the front of any tarot book, but I felt this was just a particularly good introduction to this deck. The book includes a great general overview of tarot as well. All of this front matter is difficult to really explain without going into far more detail than you’d probably want to read here, but trust me when I say it’s good.

The rest of the book goes into the meanings of the cards, of course, but it’s so well written! Each card not only has it’s general meaning but also a fantastic little story. I’m never one to sit down and read a guidebook cover to cover, but this one makes me want to do so!

Every single thing about Shadowscapes Tarot so far is fantastic. I’d highly recommend it whether you’re brand new to tarot or an old hand.
