I was so excited when I came across this today.
We went thrift shopping with a friend of ours (we all live together, so safe for CDC guidelines, etc.) so they could grab some things for work. I was wandering around the book section of the thrift store we went to and I say a sign for “Women’s Interests” and I was…irritated, I guess, because my inner feminist was like, grrr what is that even supposed to mean?! The books in this area were all things like, how to be a good wife and how to attract a good man and just…
Anyway while I was looking at the books, I happened to glance down at a shelf toward the bottom and saw a Ziploc bag with something inside. I recognized the little white booklet and, to my surprise, there was a complete tarot deck inside this Ziploc bag! I picked it up and rifled through it and these cards are beautiful. The physical cards are shiny and don’t look like they’ve ever been used. The images are beautiful, too.
So this is the Crystal Visions Tarot. I haven’t read with it yet because it needs to be cleansed. I’m not sure how many people picked it up and touched it in the thrift store, not to mention the person that had it before. Besides the normal 78 cards, this deck also has a card that is titled, The Unknown Card. I’ve never seen one of these in a tarot deck before, but I kind of like it. The card depicts a woman dressed in black with a raven, a purple candle in the background, a sun and moon in the background…all kinds of imagery. According to the booklet that came with it, this card symbolizes something that isn’t quite reading to be discovered yet.
It can signify something from the past that one may not fully understand, or something that will happen soon. Wherever the Unknown Card falls within a spread will indicate what area still needs to unfold and that further steps need to be taken in order to clarify the bigger picture.
I also really like that the booklet that came with it has meanings for the reversals. Anyway, I just wanted to show you this amazing find. It isn’t often that I find neat stuff like this at a thrift store. And the best part? It was only $2.50
