Fake Sync

Magic Manga Tarot ~ 10 of Coins

I have issues with this card, as I do with many decks from the last two decades. Wonderful artists who don't understand the underlying symbology that makes reading the cards practical and of value.

This is clearly a lady who is feeling fit and fine and fiesty but all surface. Certainly a 10 in her and the artist's mind. The 10 of Coins is the sum total of every other minor and the me vibe misses that entirely. Where is the community? Where is the group support equivalent? Where is the fort? Where are the ages that symbolize life experience? Where are the gates? Where is the dog for Pete's sake? Where is the completion shown? The 10 of Coins is the mind body soul sync. This is fake sync and does the craft no service at all.

  1. I'm in total agreement with you about this one. There are a lot of beautiful decks out there, but many lack the symbols that could give it a deeper meaning.

  2. Well said. I like some of the artistry in some newer decks, but they are so disconnected that and no bearing on the original tarot. A story line that cannot be followed, if they even had a story line with lots of these decks.

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
