The thing with this deck is/ was:

A few months back, in early spring I did see it at a large book store and said:

"Oh that would be a very nice deck to use in the summer!" 

Promptly Peter bought it ........ and stashed it away in one of his cavernous office drawers.

I forgot all about it and then again saw the deck in our local book store.

I almost bought it - but then kind of remembered, that there was something with "a nice summer deck..."

So I had to interview Peter, iffff he had it somewhere and - since THIS is summer....!!

However, he insisted, that I give him another deck recommendation for Winter Solstice.

So seen here on last week's thread I send him a link for the Forest of Enchantment deck. 🙂

 

For now I am frolicking in the lushest of Flower images!

This week I'll be using the Somnia Tarot and its companion book, created and self-published by Nicholas Bruno. I'll also be using the Lojong for the Layperson deck, a set of cards based on the 59 Buddhist mind training slogans. Today's draws are the Six of Cups and Slogan 32 (Don't wait in ambush.):

An older family member pours water from the ancestral well into the bucket of a young woman. Instead of just sharing memories, helpful wisdom is offered about how to deal with life on life's terms. Perhaps one lesson contributed might be this lojong slogan: Don't wait in ambush. When we have been hurt in some way, we may seek revenge with the same concentrated focus as the ladybug seeks aphids. We can convince ourselves that retribution is only fair and will teach a lesson to the other person. Meanwhile, resentment locks us in a cycle of misery and any retributive action leads us to worry about a backlash. If history has shown us anything, it's is that acts of revenge never lead to peace. 
 
Revenge... is like a rolling stone, which, when a man hath forced up a hill, will return upon him with a greater violence, and break those bones whose sinews gave it motion. ~Jeremy Taylor

Hi, crew!  Good to see you all here again!  I’m already catching up.  (I think that’s turning into my middle name!)

 

This week will be Tarot de Marseille Francois Chosson 1736 and the Sustain Yourself Cards.  They’re joined in my mind only because they’re gifts from a tarot society friend who is moving out of the country and had to offload some of her collection.

 

The Chosson is my first repro by Yves Reynaud, Tarot de Marseille Heritage.

The Sustain Yourself is self-published by James Wanless, creator of the Voyager Tarot.  It has 101 cards of nature phenomena with a name and keyword.  Because of the variety and number of cards, I’m thinking it will make a good spread deck.  We’ll find out!

But first, an interview with the Chosson.

Most important characteristic:  Roy de Dener

It is a masterful physical reproduction.

 

Strength:  VIIII Espees

It is trying to break through the woven cage of the 8 curved swords with the straight 9th sword.  But that might be difficult.  It has important things to say, but I need to get over preconceived notions in order to hear the messages.

 

Weakness:  IIII Coupes

You either love it or hate it.  Again, preconceived notions limit the emotional response to the deck.

 

What I can learn from it:  X Baston

I can learn about taking action as a result of readings.  But doing that might be more difficult than the reading says.

 

How can I learn it:  Reyne de Coupe

By being open emotionally, rather than sticking with the 4 Coupe.  And paying attention to how it feels, not just reading titles.

 

Outcome of our work together:  La Papesse

Well, that’s a big promise!  The deck will unlock some kind of inner wisdom in me.  Or at least help me figure out what I should be pondering and studying in the future.

 

A good mix of cards, with a major as the last card!  That also seems like a positive sign.  We’ll see!

The Rosenwald tarot will be my deck of choice. It’s a great historical deck - I love its quirks. 

 

The Rosenwald is my primary reading deck!  It's certainly quirky, and I love that about it!

 

Here's my Monday on Tuesday!  I'll be back with today's.
