|Tarot Illuminati by Erik. C. Dunne|
I can be so ostentatious at times and when I see money in my account that has no obvious purpose, it seems to find its way to exchange itself into a new deck of cards. I honestly do not know how it does it but it does. Honestly these things just magically 'appear' in my shopping cart. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
Today I was excited to receive my copy of Tarot Illuminati by Erik. C. Dunne. To say I was hyper excited was an understatement. I was at my daughter's house and luckily my post man knows me so he handed the parcel(s) in there, seriously I could have kissed him.
My delight was a little obvious as I ripped open the package then proceeded to ooh and aah my way through the deck. The colours are so vibrant and each card is loaded with imagery. I'm a little hmmm about the faces of the people on the cards, but I suppose its just a case of familiarising myself with them.
I know some people do not appreciate CGI decks, I don't have a problem with them as, if done well, it can add layer upon layer of imagery which to me only enhances the understanding of each card (no TdM for me thank you). The LWB (if you can call it that, as it is not little or white) is beautifully written by Kim Huggens, one of my favourite tarot authors. Each Major has a full page colour reproduction of the card with a one page explanation of its significance.
There are a few spreads in the book too and information is given about furthering your learning with tarot with astrology, numerology and Kabbalah.
I'm a Ciro Marchetti girl myself and adore his tarot and oracle decks and eagerly anticipate the release of Tarot of Dreams on the mass market. But I must admit I am royally impressed with Illuminati.
I am looking forward to doing some self development readings with these cards, as I feel they have a wealth of information within each card.
I have also been ordered, by my daughter. to give her a reading with these as soon as possible, so it looks like I may be busy this evening.
