The Wild Unknown Tarot (by Kim Krans)
Today's deck is a 'new entry' into my overall Top Ten Tarot Decks and is in third position. It is a black and white deck with coloured highlights in many of the images (and, in fact, only 15 of the 78 cards are completely devoid of colour). There are no human figures, only wild animals and birds. Court cards are entitled Father, Mother, Son and Daughter. The Wands court are snakes, the Cups court are swans, the Swords court are owls and the Pentacles court are deer. The deck is fascinating...
II of Pentacles : The Lovers : Father of Pentacles
An elementally ill-dignified Lovers sits at the centre of the spread today (in a sequence of EARTH v AIR v EARTH). This suggests that I may be turning my back upon a relationship or partnership. The butterfly on the II of Pentacles would seem to indicate change and transformation - and I recall that in the Thoth Tarot deck the 2 of Disks (Pentacles) is entitled 'Change'. This change sees me cast in the noble stance of the stag on the Father of Pentacles card. In turning my back on this particular partnership/liaison/relationship I assume a more dignified role and, as if to echo the change heralded by the first card in the spread, the coloured highlights of the lemniscate on the butterfly's wings are matched by the coloured highlights of the stag's antlers...his 'crown' and symbol of authority, if you like.
