About this deal

Each suit feels like walking a path through a dream landscape; climbing over cloudy rocks in the suit of torches, strolling down a otherworldly beach in the suit of cups, and so on. While an entire page is devoted to each Major, above you’ll see that card meanings for the Minors are greatly condensed. Beautifully done, Walden, and what an incredible pairing it is to be published by Liminal 11, easily becoming one of my favorite small house deck publishers in our field. This hand-painted tarot deck is a kaleidoscope of colors, drawing inspiration from subconscious and subliminal states to create a deck that is both soulful and vibrant. It is a very accessible deck for most tarot beginners and will charm more experienced readers with its use of symbolism and color; close examination of the art in each card reveals a surprise- easiest to notice in the Aces.

Description The Cosmic Slumber – Special Limited Edition featuring exclusive content from Tillie Walden, not available anywhere else! Visibly brown bodies are interspersed here and there and primarily in the pentacles and wands suit, at least from what I noted. We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts. Though I adore the design and colour of this case, I was slightly disappointed to find that part of the packaging has been padded with plain, brown cardboard which is sadly glued inside the beautiful case – this perhaps could have been avoided if sizing had been correct upon printing and is perhaps something which may be considered and altered in the future. The Guide book also features some detailed tarot spreads to help you engage with your dreams and much more.Drawing from her fairy tale style, the deck brings a gentle and whimsical touch to the tarot, infusing it with psychedelic and surreal elements that ground the reader in a palpable dream world. Crimson, orange, buttery yellow, violet, and skyblue dominate the deck, with many details picked out shades of green, puce, slate, rust, and lime. The Cosmic Slumber Tarot comes with a sweet, little, fifty-six page, colour-printed, hardback guidebook.

On the other hand, the simplicity of the Minors may make this deck a bit more difficult to read with, particularly for inexperienced readers or those who are accustomed to relying on RWS-style imagery. The focus on dreams and the subconscious is present in every part of this deck, from the descriptions in the guidebook to the art to the unique spreads. Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material without express and written permission from this site’s owner is strictly prohibited. I also wanted to mention, with this deck being an artistic interpretation of the Tarot, especially in the Minors some of the symbolism and imagery doesn’t intuitively translate to the RWS inspired definitions generally, and those in the guidebook with this deck. There’s a Fool card meets Wheel of Fortune meets the Death card and the four Aces energy to The Morning card, while The Night is Two of Disks-esque (Thoth interpretation, rather than RWS).Dreams and magic are both about letting yourself be drawn to what feels right, and that can make them difficult to explain or describe, even when it might make sense in your heart or your gut. The major arcana don’t have the same kind of coherent theme, but there’s something so whimsical and abstract about them. This is an 80 card fully illustrated deck – it has 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana, with an addition of two clarifying cards, The Morning and The Night.

Includes also some brief explanation on the Major and Minor Arcana, as well as some beginner reading on how to read tarot and a good number of different spreads. You get the verdant, leafy landscapes, what feels like the European or a North American countryside, and the introduction of the color green. As far as ability, gender, age, and sexuality, your mileage may vary- personally, I read quite a few of the characters as queer and non-conforming and I’d argue that as the creator identifies as queer, this reading of the deck is not only invited it is intentioned. Each card is a window into a scene that feels like it is somehow eternally present, frozen in time; we don’t know where these figures come from or where they are going, because there is a sense that they fundamentally, inescapably belong to the one moment we see them in.At the end of a long day, The Night enables you to slow time and deal with issues that you have been unable to give time to during the day. The cards follow a generally recognizable Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) pattern with some nice variations here and there. The Night card has an unusual quality in that it encourages the Seeker to make the most of the night hours. There can be no question about it, Liminal 11 has firmly established itself as one of the most impressive publishers of Tarot decks on the market today.
