For anyone interested in tarot decks/ gorgeous artwork- here is the Anima Mundi Tarot by Megan Wyreweden!
The deck is a traditional tarot deck with 78 (Major and Minor Arcana). While there is no gold leaf applied to the face of the cards, there is gold on the side- so when they are all together and catch the light, it is quite an attractive deck
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful artwork! The deck focuses on animals and nature with a color palette of mostly soft blues, whites, blacks, and greys. The artist definitely has a preference for birds more than any other animal!
Something interesting I found is that while three of the suites have a clear element (swords=air / cups=water / pentacles=earth ), the last suit (wands) did not have a clear element. Although it should be fire, there is only one card in the entire deck that has a picture of fire on it . Even The Tower, which is depicted as a volcano , has only smoke- there is no fire shown on the card.
In my opinion, this makes the deck slightly imbalanced. I will use it for readings involving air and water especially, as those two elements dominate the deck. For matters regarding fire and earth, I will probably turn to a different deck
This is going to be a tricky deck to read! Although I knew this and bought it anyway It doesn’t have the bountiful symbolism that other decks have- the cards are limited to an animal, element, and an item or flower or background. Not much to draw from… but luckily it came with a handy little pocket guide with all the interpretations!
I took a picture of my favorite Major Arcana cards in the deck- I love how The Fool echoes the traditional Raider-Waite depiction of this card. Justice was particulary powerful presence , and I LOVE this take on Death. The Moon is easily the most gorgeous picture in the deck, although it’s basically completely devoid of symbolism and just a really beautiful painting
I also greatly appreciate the Roman Numeral on each card- it helps when I ask the cards for more specific information about time/dates
All in all, I highly recommend the deck!
Happy card readings, and Blessed Be!
