Pearls of Wisdom ~ Favourite Cards


I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what our favourite cards are, and perhaps why.

So I went through the deck and found the cards I have a strong affinity with....in this deck quite a few!
~~~~~~~~~~


The Hermit - The card I look at to get a feel for a deck. This one is immensely profound. The books, cave, trees, moon and lanterns combine to make this image extremely personal for me and very radiantly prepossessing. This is my soul card. One of my most treasured Hermit's in any deck! I will be using it for meditations.

The Star - There is a bright energy and hope here, the stars in the background are gorgeous....the flowers and profusion of celestial light make me feel soothed and quiescent. The energy is complete tranquillity.

The Devil - I just love the interpertation of this card! The broken mirror spelling out devil or live.....the distorted and enslaved image is all about illusions and the power of our perception. The words on the outside of the mirror are evocative. This image has a very distinct fairytale quality to it.

The Moon -1 of my all time treasured interpertations of this arcana! The mood of ritual in the deep night opens this card up.

Queen of Swords - She looks so imposing and Elizabethian on her throne with the full moon shining in the casement.

Ace of Pentacles - This card sings abundance and magic to me. Lush and fragrant.

King of Cups - Love his throne! King of Hearts.This image makes me feel the benevolent love and caring of this king.

The World - Honestly The World is usually a pretty quiet, boring card. I love this image!! The earth/sky floor is brilliant as well as the door/key aspect. A brightly dressed tap dancer, how great is that?!

7 of Pentacles - This is an usual image for the 7 of Pents, showing a duality of nature's stages and our role in her bounty. Makes me feel grounded and secure.

9 of Swords - This is an intensely penetrating portrayal! The shadow woman with the dying white rose in the back is sublime in a gothic way. Many layers here. Initiation into some deeper mysteries.

Death - This is the 1st card I fell in deep love with when 1st paging through the deck. Captures transformation sublimely!

The Lovers - The entwined trees, falling leaves, mushrooms and the hill in shape of a woman makes this a lucsious, sensuous card.

7 of Cups - What a joyful card! Visions, happiness, imagination and creativity abound.

The Fool - This captures the Fool's essence very deeply. I love his costume. Who wouldn't adore that dog?!

Page of Wands - The vibrant autumnal colours and warmth here make me smile everytime. Those masks are simply whimsical and charming! A brightly lit stage at night on the water under a full moon. This is probably one of my favourite courts in this deck, have no idea why.

The Hierophant - This image captures the true meaning of this arcana for me superbly, no negative cult leader/organized religion shown here.

5 of Pentacles - Just love the crows stealing pearls out the window, how apt and charming!!

3 of Swords - The dark, deathly Autumn scene here is mesmerizing. The bells are an eerie touch. Another gothic fairytale card.

4 of Swords - Very calm, restful and reposing energy when I gaze at this card. Tranquil.

7 of Swords - I'd love a print of this! Him sneaking across that tree bridge silouhetted by the full moon with the cloud blowing him onwards is a splendid image.

8 of Swords - All the luminescent wind, ribbons of energy and the moon are so eye-catching.

The High Priestess - This image is so magical and has deep inner discernment and perception. The owl, cauldron, apple, book, candles....love it!
~~~~~~~~~~

Ok, obviously many many favourites in this deck, and I didn't even list them all! This tarot is fast turning into a very exquisitely personal and treasured deck for me.....it's been an enlightening, awe-inspiring, magical and enchanting journey so far filled with much learning and discovery.

I would love to hear about other's favourites and why. It would be wonderful to talk about the stellar, charming, whimsical and resplendent images within this deck with fellow lovers of it
