This blog is designed to explore the new Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. But since I LOVE to blog....I am sure I'll wander off into some other musings about fairytales!!

"The Fairy Tale Tarot cards are like gazing into that pool. They reflect different aspects of each of us. They illuminate or accentuate those parts of us that we seek, or deny, or just long to understand. The cards and the fairy tales they are based on, provide a framework for understanding self and the human aspects of life. And maybe the "not so human" aspects too....the spiritual. They are the water in the pool. Clear and shimmering, reflecting clearly and yet also bringing forth tiny glimpses of those wings. It is this aspect of the cards that called to me. I feel they have things to reveal to me and I am anxious to hear them "speak."

New Deck Interview

I got the New Deck Interview Spread and Questions from FireRaven at Aeclectic.

1. Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?

CARD: King of Pentacles: Oh this is priceless...."Summon the help of someone who can provide a voice of logic as you try to determine your best course of action." Key words: integrity, support, wealth. I think the deck is saying that its most important characteristic is that it is a vehicle for helping to determine the best course of action.

2. What are your strengths as a deck?

CARD: XVI Deception: This just gets better and better..."If we deny ourselves inner truths and pursue a life of pretense and shallow intent, we will be setting ourselves up for a fall." Key words: disaster, breaking illusions, revelation. So I think the decks stength is that it helps us identify our inner truths and helps us move away from shallow truths. It "reflects" (as I wrote earlier) just like a clear pool and we can see ourselves reflected there, as well as, catch a glimpes of "something more". Like those wings, be they parts of our spiritual self, or parts of the spiritual world.

3. What are your limits as a deck?

CARD: Three of Wands: ..."You can facilitate creative growth by remaining open to those things that will help you diversify." Key words: Energy, communication, opportunity. This card is saying that the change or growth are up to us. We direct this aspect of the process. The deck can't "make" someone change or "see". It is simply a tool for facilitating growth but openess, awareness, creativity, and change are all up to the individual.

4. What do you bring to the table -- what are you here to teach me?

CARD: Eight of Cups: ..."We can quickly get lost in the momentum of our actions without considering pause." Key words: Greed, Overindulgence, Change. This one is a little harder for me to "see". I think it is saying that it brings a chance for "pause" or a way to stop and reflect. It is here to teach me not to get lost in the hectic pace of life but to pause and seek the inner world as well as the physical world. Overindulgence in either world is not helpful but balance is the key.

5. How can I best learn from and collaborate with you?

CARD: Eight of Wands..."This may entail taking a journey and making things happen." Key words....cooperative activities, swift action, making things happen. I don't think the swift action part of this really is the message. I think the message is in the "journey". It is saying the best way to learn and collaborate is to be open to the journey, to participate in cooperative activities with others and to let things "unfold".

6. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?

CARD: Queen of Cups..."If we learn to connect more with our innermost feelings, we may be able to sharpen our intuitive senses and psychic impulses. By harnessing these inner resources, we have the opportunities to strengthen our love and compassion for others." Key words: loving, intuitive. This is a great potential outcome...and the quote really says it all!!!!

This is an awesome activity....give it a try...!!
