Play your cards right

Some people have one tarot deck or a few favorites, and they will never have another deck that is as meaningful to them. We get that. But if you're open to exploring new decks, here's the story behind the Illuminated Tarot. Caitlin Keegan illustrated one tarot card each week for a year (and a week). She then transformed those illustrations into this 53 card tarot deck.

Wait. wut? How do you get 78 cards out of 53? Okay, so stick with us. Each suit represents a corresponding tarot suit (Clubs=Wands, Spades=Swords, Diamonds=Pentacles, Hearts=Cups). That's the easy part. Now, in addition, each suit has either 5 or 6 cards which double as themselves in the Minor Arcana and a specific card of the Major Arcana. So, for instance, the 2 of Hearts (Cups) is also Temperance. And Temperance is traditionally illustrated pouring between two cups, so that works nicely.

Instead of shipping in a tuck case or a bag, this set of linen-finish 3 1/2" x 5" cards is meant to stay in its box. It's a gorgeous blue hinged box with gold stamped edges. The cards stay nestled in their box (under the guide for as long as you need it), and you can bring them forth with a ribbon. They feel good in the hand. A little stiff, but they should soften up with use. And you'll probably get more use out of them since you can also use them to play traditional card games, if you're okay with that sort of thing. We get it if you need to put them away on the shelf. But, you know, gin rummy can have a particular energy of its own....
