After months and months of waiting, finally it has arrived. I am really taken with the Gaian Tarot, and all I can say is, words and pictures don’t really do it justice. But I’ll try 🙂 The deck is the creation of Joanna Powell Colbert, taking the author 9 years of gestation before its glorious delivery in 2012.
The deck arrived with a superb book, a luxurious bag, and a striking amulet, all part of the limited edition package. I chose the Empress for my amulet, as I find her most fitting for my life right now. She is indeed radiant and full of creativity.
I am seriously contemplating getting another one, seeing that my deck is already number 781 out of 1000. The main reason being, in keeping with her vision, Joanna has chosen an environment – friendly printer, and this means the cards are not laminated, which I love, but it also means that in the long run, the deck may not hold up, especially as I will be working with it a lot (I just know I will. Even if this remains my only copy, this is not a deck to stow away in a box somewhere “for the future”. It demands to be energised and shuffled.)
Today I drew the Hermit, and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. The day is not over yet, and I’m still planning an astrology study session and a yoga session. I guess that’s what a good Sunday is all about. I’ll be happily shuffling this deck all week long, and taking my time with it. Hope everyone has a great week ahead.
Warm tropical blessings,
