    More Kickstarter decks for your thoughts

    Ah ha, they beat me to it and posted explaining what the 6 minis are: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/295140183/broken-mirror-tarot-generation-v/posts/3509090 So, v1-4, and 2 of the v5 decks, Sapphire (which they indicate is a Marseille deck) and Obsidian (RWS). They've updated the campaign to indicate Emerald is also an RWS deck, but it's a different visual style than Obsidian. So, in effect, 3 quite different decks.

    Top Cards Indicating Apologies

    Judgment is a good one. I see Chariot as a marital counseling or a counseling card. It could be extended to an apology card I suppose. I'm no therapist but I'm pretty sure that one of the issues in relationships is forgiveness or lack thereof. That may be a bit of a stretch. Judgement is a better fit. What about Temperance? It is one of the virtues, after all. "Love and forgiveness" and whatnot. Lovers?

    Let's Give Swords Some Love?

    Swords are the suit of communication and thought, which most people find difficult to do, especially thinking for yourself. (I'm convinced that many of the world's problems stem from people not thinking for themselves, but that's a political topic!) After all, why do most marriages fall apart, for example? Why do most disasters occur? (Lack of communication.) People find it hard to make their own decisions or are easily led astray. Maybe this is why swords get such a bad rap. I'm a "swords person". They will come up time and time again in readings for me. I've started a Deck of the Week study program and so far I've gotten 10 of Swords as my Hinge card and the King of Swords as a daily draw and I'm only on day three! Back to the Crowley/GD keywords. Yes, they are almost all "bad", but if you look more closely at the Book of Thoth the explanations for them aren't as terrible as the keywords suggest. He leaves so much open for interpretation. And with some of his descriptions, they seem so glum, I get the feeling that there is the dire need for improvement. Nothing lasts forever. With the swords, there's nowhere to go but up.

    Let's Give Swords Some Love?

    I'll admit - swords always show up where I don't want them. When I feel like I need some emotional or kinetic feedback... a cold, calculated and practical sword shows up. However I find them great when reading for others - a way to find out just how delusional or honest they're being with themselves.

    Top Cards Indicating Apologies

    Thank you! Are you able to elaborate a bit more on the “why”?

    Really love this perspective and statement, the “well-defined, sharp, and acute feelings…” it evokes great imagery and depth to be considered!

    Top Cards Indicating Apologies

    In the major arcana, I've always seen Judgment as the card of forgiveness, apology and reconciliation. Speaking of the minor arcana, I always associate with the Ace, Two and Six of Cups. Make sense?

    Let's Give Swords Some Love?

    Hey! Very interesting topic! In my opinion, all suits can express and contain good and/or romantic feelings. Swords can often bring anxiety, worry and hurtful thoughts (as we are used to seeing them), but also well-defined, sharp and acute feelings. The page of swords, for example, can speak of someone who is intellectually enchanted by someone. I can still think about ambiguous/ambivalent feelings, just like the sword. Does it make sense to you?

    Let's Give Swords Some Love?

    Hey @mainemainemaine I do like most of the Sword cards, well it all depends of the context. In my opinion sometimes our brain plays games with us and clear thinking is needed. Swords will show that. The 10 of Swords is the final ending. Even though in some instances we might not want to see that and would rather want to hang on. Depending on the question, sometimes it is a good thing if it is finally over. Yes of course a blade can cut and leave marks and it can be painful. But sometimes it is good to cut through the crap

    Crowley called the Thoth six of swords, which he thought the high point of the suit, Science. At it best the swords energy gives objective judgment clarity of thought. I also remember some one saying what they do depends on how you pick them up by the blade or the handle.

    Top Spreads for New Beginnings?

    I'm looking for more insight on what spreads folx currently use for someone who comes to them wanting to focus on future-only. To not review or reflect on the past, and not even necessarily focus on the present, but looking for advice on how to proceed moving forward- career, love, family, etc. What spreads typically lend themselves to this? Or, is there a recommendation for a self-designed spread that would be useful here?

    Top Cards Indicating Apologies

    Would love to hear everyone's thoughts on cards that lend themselves to apologies. I'm well versed in cards of communication, but often struggled to determine what the communication other than "positive" or "negative" might be, and apologies tend to fall into this gray area for me. What are your top cards for indicating apologies, and why?
  20. mainemainemaine

    Let's Give Swords Some Love?

    I would love to learn more about folx thoughts on the "brighter" or "more loving" sides of Swords (if you feel there are any). Often thought of as the colder suit, I have found them turning up in reads where I know love or positive in the energy for the individuals/couples very much exists. So I'd love to learn a more optimistic view of this often dreaded Suit!

    What's The Postman Bringing?

    Might be worth to keep checking, then! I just looked at my receipt and I could still cancel my order - I imagine that will be possible until they get shipped (which won't happen for a few weeks apparently). And now that the project seems to be closed for new participants, if a deck comes back you might even be the only person who can access it Pledgemanager is such a counterintuitive site...

    The future of tarot market

    I remember when "they" said vinyl was dead. Then CD's were dead. And now CD's are selling once again. Maybe disco will return. Tarot cards will remain. They've been around for centuries. And thats a long time!

    Good Morning! 👋

    Hello! Excited to jump into this forum. I’ve been studying tarot for about three years- history, usage, meaning, application, art- and feel really confident in my abilities to read individual cards for myself and for others. I’ve received a lot of positive feedback that supports my readings are on track, which is great. But I continue to struggle with combination cards, and my confidence level isn’t there yet. So I’m looking forward to learning more about how to craft those stories.

    The future of tarot market

    Personally, I'd rather just order the deck. By the time I got a PDF, found somewhere to print it, decided how to print it (card type etc) and then actually paid for it to be printed, anything decent here would probably cost more than just buying the deck. In terms of apps etc, I'm "old school". I still have physical books and have never had kindle etc. For me, there is something about holding something, turning pages, shuffling, the feel of it in my hands etc.

    Thanks, that's really helpful advice I think this part struck me because previously I'd take action, but the belief wasn't there. So I wasn't getting anywhere with things. I always saw things as something in the future I was taking action to work towards.

    Yeah - this is a real toughie....

    More Kickstarter decks for your thoughts

    The description indicates it's the three new ones and three prior versions. As I recall one of the prior ones had no card changes from a previous version and was basically a straight reprint, but I might drop them an ask to check on that. I'm more likely to just buy the bundle of the new three, though that book end box is so cute.
