I have been on a long break from buying any new tarot decks. Mostly it is about space and the lack thereof, but also, it is because I am becoming more fussy? I love collecting decks but for the moment, I only want decks that speak to me in some way.
Murder of Crows by Corrado Roi. I had seen this deck a few times on the web and it never really called to me before last week. Perhaps because I wasn't ready for it. But with the psychopomp dreams of crows coming to me to whisper in my ear that my calling was here, the deck just about screamed BUY ME.
So, I did.
And it did NOT disappoint. I have never had a single tarot deck that there wasn't at least one or two cards, I didn't really "get." I didn't like something about them but overall the deck was fine. Even my beloved Thoth has a card or two I don't much agree with but this deck was a surprise.
I love each and every card and each one spoke to me and told me its story. I have actually had this deck for a bit now, but felt it was so personal, that I couldn't share it yet.
Here is my deck interview:
I admit I was like, "wait, what?!?!?!?!" While I have never gone for the fluffy, lighter decks, I have never actually admitted my shadow side likes the dark. And this deck promises to bring some interesting adventures my way. How could it not, when Lord Malphas shows up in the center seat as a description of the deck itself?
Then, I did a Full Moon reading with it and well - it was so spot on I got the chills.
To sum up, in a place of balance I can see clearly - I can be vulnerable and let my spirit fly, anchored safely, to new places of initiation. I will release doubt and fear and rise up, letting go of things that no longer serve me - especially my own doubt. My guides are always with me and I can go where others cannot.
That speaks to my goals as a psychopomp as well as just working with Me and My Shadow.
I wasn't sure I wanted to bring these workings to the public, but felt that I needed to. So, I will most likely be using them in tandem with my Thoth for Daily Mindfulness. At the moment and readings with them are just for me - still to personal to use for other people - they are powerful and gorgeous.
