Trump 2 (Creatrix) : 7 of Fire (Restlessness) : 5 of Water (Creativity)
I wasn't sure which of the decks of those remaining unused and unexplored on my shelves I should use this week. Browsing Aeclectic Tarot Forum earlier today I came across some new posts about Dirk Gillabel's Vision Tarot. This is a deck that I got in a tarot trade earlier this year and after a brief glance through the cards I set it aside - somewhat confused by the imagery and the titles of the cards. I have decided to give it a try…
I DO feel a sense of restlessness at this time (7 of Fire) and find myself unable to really focus on one thing at a time, and I guess that these cards are telling me that the most positive way forward is to find an outlet for all the ideas and projects and plans that I have whirling inside my head (which may well be the root causes of my distraction). I see little real difference between the two cards (and images) which flank the central card. Even their titles are similar 'Creatrix' (Trump 2)and 'Creativity' (5 of Water). In none of these cards do I see any real link to any tarot system that I have worked with before beyond the division of the cards into trumps and elemental suits. This makes me wonder if the deck is really a tarot deck at all…
