Artwork Victoria Frances & Book by Kim Arnold
Lo Scarabeo £15.99
When I was first approached to write the accompanying book for this deck I was thrilled, however, on receiving the images initially my heart sank (stay with me), some of the images I found distressing, but I had committed to write, so no turning back.
Working with this deck was very different from any other, it taught me how to react and work with the darkness which often lurks within each of us. Of course we don’t talk about this, preferring to pull a nice fluffy angel card or something more familiar out of our Tarot decks for guidance. As I worked with each card, with every one of the 36 cards I spent in quiet contemplation, I would sit quietly, observe and look at the voice within each of them and take note of what was going on beyond the images, intuitively I would be guided to the meaning of each card, some I struggled with, but I realised, this reflected my own struggles, the images make you work at facing your fears, and love or loathe them, Victoria Frances is one very talented artist.
This may not be a deck you would naturally be drawn to, but I feel that for self development there is not a better deck on the market. There is also a meditation to help you get started.
Half way through working with the deck I was ‘given’ the Arch Spread which is detailed in the accompanying book::
- What blocks me?
- Who is blocking me?
- How do I remove these barriers?
- How will my life flow differently once I make changes?
- What is my true potential?
Much of this deck works with light and dark, it guides and advises us to appreciate that where there is darkness the light is not far behind.
Of course I highly recommend this deck, as the author, I know how much love, soul searching and effort went in to this.
