Step inside the enchanting world of the fey. Rich watercolor images by renowned artist Linda Ravenscroft capture the vibrancy and grace of faeries, sprites, elves, and nymphs in their lush gardens. Each suit tells a “faerie tale” as the nature spirits embark on magical adventures. A water nymph and wood elf learn that love is a gift not to be taken lightly, while two foolish fae nearly allow their home to be overtaken by a magical blue rose. These stories offer lessons and fresh insights in all matters of life, while remaining true to tarot archetypes.
The Mystic Faerie Tarot kit includes a 78 card tarot deck, 288-page book that introduces tarot and describes the major and minor arcana in detail, and a beautiful and handy gold organdy bag with a satin cord.
Perfect for beginners, you’ll also find sample readings, a quick reference guide to the cards, and whimsical spreads specially designed to invoke faerie magic: Dew Drop, Acorn to Oak, Lily Pond, Faerie Ring, Two Paths in the Garden, Rose Petals, Your Birthday Sunflower Spread, A Nighttime Forest Stroll, and the Love Me, Love Me Not Daisy Spread.
“Moore makes an interesting statement about the cards when she says that the names of the cards and the structure of the deck reflect our rational, conscious mind, while the images on the cards reflect our inner self. Together, they form a perfect bridge between our mind and our heart.”
