Savored Bounty

Daily Draw: Secret Forest Tarot ~ 2 of Coins

Is she or isn't she? Will he or won't he?
Who cares and who doesn't? Are they or aren't they?

We make decisions and choices every day weighted by the lives which surround and touch us. Yes, choices of the heart, but the suit of coins is much more, body mind and everything earthly is caught up in the suit. Free choice and the bounty thereof are gifts to be savored.

"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche 1844-1900

The Secret Forest Tarot is an excellent example of Lo Scarabeo Publishing'willingness to step outside the Rider-Waite tarot box and offer something that makes the brain rote fortune-telling here. Each card has two sides, a black and white rough draft, and the colored side, the finished card art. The humans in the art take a back seat to the setting and the natural and unnatural creatures who inhabit it. If you want to stretch and grow your reading abilities, this is a great deck to do it with. Published 2005, beautiful art by Lucia Mattioli. She is hard at work on a second deck, this one landscape rather than upright, with a double image on each. More thinking required!

  1. Love this deck, and I can't wait until she finishes her new one! These cards make me feel like I've been shrunk to Thumbelina size, and now I'm seeing everything from a whole new perspective.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
