When I get a new Tarot deck, I really like to get to know it before I use it. So, I interview the deck and see what it has to say. This is the interview I did of The Light Visions Tarot.
1 – Who Are You? 2 of Wands. This deck is all about choices and its at the beginning of a journey. There are plenty of choices about which way to go and how to get there. The boy holds the two Wands and looks across the water at where he wants to go. This card is all about potential, about ideas and the creative spirit (I can hear the gears in his head thinking about how to get across). I get the sense that this deck is joining me at the beginning of a journey. Now I have to see where it will take me.
2 – Your strengths? The Empress. She is all about beauty and grace, about being in touch with Spirit. She is the Earth, the sun and the air. She is the wind and the grass, the natural world around me. She is so strong with connecting to myself, to what I need to know. She is so strong in finding the simple joys, the little things that make up the day that bring clarity. She is strength of Spirit.
3 – Your weaknesses? 6 of Chalices. The 6 of Chalices is normally a happy card, one of celebration, a recognizing of the people within your life that fill your life with joy. From this card, I get the sense that she is spending too much time looking at what is bringing her joy, so much so that it isolates her from the world around her. I need to focus on what brings me joy, not isolate myself from them.
4 – Type of readings you prefer? The 5 of Chalices. A boy let’s go of three chalices by letting them fall from a cliff. This card is about letting go of that which would hurt me, though it may be hurtful to let go of that in the first place. The cards prefer readings where I’m working on getting past of letting go of that which is hurting me and holding me back.
5 – How you challenge me? The Moon. I love this card. It’s all about choices. Do I move the boat further in the water and move between the rocks to travel beyond? Or do I go back the way I came? Do I head towards the Moon and the wisdom it brings, or turn away from it? The same can be said of the deck. The Light Visions Tarot will help me to confront the possibilities and the choices I have yet to make.
I love this deck. It’s odd that I already know it so well, having and loving the Prisma Visions Tarot. I do love the subtle differences in the Light Visions Tarot from the Prisma Visions deck, though. There’s just something about it that’s like a soft and lovely hum.
