She’s here! The Ethereal Visions Illuminated Tarot deck is in my hands and I am absolutely in love! It was love at first sight with this deck, and now, with the cards in my hands, I fall more and more in love with them every day. It’s such a special deck created by amazing people and it’s always such a joy to read with. Check it out!
Oh. My. Glob. This. Deck. I don’t think I’ve experienced #decklust or deck FOMO this hard since…I don’t know when, to be perfectly honest. I had seen so many gorgeous photos of this “sassy burrito” deck and I just knew I had to have it. When I felt like I couldn’t take it any longer, I went to order it but it was sold out! Major sad face. But then Jess posted about it and I knew that I had to keep trying so that I could finally get my hands on this lovely. To my delight, it was back in stock (forever, I hope!) at Stasia Burrington’s shop. Of course I ordered it immediately and of course I reveled in the gold edged, silky smooth, magical cards. Let’s take a look at what’s in store with our budding new friendship.
I recently got this lil baby in the mail and omg the art is even more beautiful in person! I love it!! But because I love the artwork so much, I’m sad to say that the orange borders are kind of a buzzkill with this one. Dare I say it, will this be the first ever deck I attempt at modifying? I’m hesitant to take a paper cutter / scissors / Xacto / sharp object to these babies but that pop of orange has got to go.
Orange borders aside, here’s the interview I promised in my Favorite Decks for Fall post. Enjoy!
One word that has been popping up for me since I woke up yesterday: Surrender. Surrender to this, surrender to that…surrender to…The Universe. Instead of feeling quite like surrender meant “giving up”, I took it as “stop resisting”. I think Louise Androlia feels the same way! In fact, it was a link to her Surrender spread that made me aware of that word in my consciousness at that moment. I felt the ripple effects for the rest of the day, too!
Although the spread featured here is not Louise Androlia’s Surrender spread, I felt like Beth’s Creativity, Courage and Commitment spread was quite complimentary to yesterday’s theme. Speaking of compliments, check out how sweetly the Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards compliment my beautiful Linestrider! I felt so intensely about this reading and The Archer, so I compared notes 🙂
