Twin Peaks Tarot - The Magician Longs to See
Today's mail brought a long anticipated package, "The Magician Longs to See" twin peaks tarot by Ben Mackey. I couldn't wait to get home and open the box! And I wasn't disappointed. The photo above is the introductory pamphlet and the one below depicts The Magician, The Empress and the Justice cards.
The cards themselves are colorful, just the right size for my hands, and seem very sturdy. I love the way the artist kept to the spirit of the tarot and still incorporated so many elements from the series. My reading style relies as heavily on the actual images as it does on traditional meanings, so I was especially pleased to see that every single card in the Minor Arcana is as fully illustrated as those of the Major Arcana and tells it's own story.
The four suits are represented by the symbols in the photo above.
Cups = Coffee cups
Swords = Fir Trees
Wands = Logs
Pentacles = Poker Chips
When the individual suits are laid out in order from the Ace to the King, they each tell the story a specific sub plot. For instance, all of the Wands have to do with The Log Lady.
I think this deck is brilliant and can't wait to use it here on Keen. Please let me know if you would like a reading using this deck.
