Phoenix

Daily Draw: Transparent Tarot ~ Judgment/Aeon

Well represented with this card, a process of leaving behind and rising again, clean and renewed.

I'm reminded by this card how difficult it is for human nature to clear the past...we chew those old slights and wounds as if there were nourishment to be had rather than the soul shriveling it actually accomplishes. On this Holy Day I will work at being the Phoenix rather than the buzzard hoarding carrion of the past.

The Transparent Tarot by Emily Carding, published by Shiffer Publishing 2008. It isn't the only deck of cards that has ever been made this way but it is certainly the only, lone, unique tarot deck to be designed and produced with clear cards and meant to be stacked up and read rather than placed in spread formation. On her website, if you click on tarot and then on Transparent you can see a beautiful slide show of what happens when cards are are layered on each other. Here you can see a beautiful Ripples of Consequence spread designed by Rodney Carter just for the uniqueness of this deck.
