I did it. I broke down.
I had announced last month that I’d wait and use the Sun & Moon deck as my carrot for finishing the major cut on my manuscript.
But… I had to order some plant markers from Amazon.com for my fall garden… And if you’re anything like me, it’s downright impossible to place an order from that site for a measly $3. So this little beauty jumped into my shopping cart, and I didn’t have the heart to turn her away.
She arrived yesterday — along with my markers, don’t forget! — and of course I unwrapped her right away. The cards themselves are thicker than I’m used to and have gently rounded corners. The soft matte finish is quite different from my glossy Magical Forest deck, but the cards are easy for me to shuffle and give off a lovely shoof, shoof, shoof when they slide alongside each other.

- What do you think of me? // Princess of Swords
I love it! I’ve been craving this deck for some time now, and it looks like she won’t disappoint me. She (why I’m thinking of my deck as a sentient female is beyond me, but there ya go) is creative, expressive, energetic and won’t hide any truths from me. That’s exactly what I need, since I plan to develop a close bond with her in the months to come and need her to tell it like it is. She’s going to excel at relationship issues and choices I’m faced with. Once we get to know each other a little better, I may choose to check with her less for daily spreads when I’m just trying to get a feel for the day’s energy. But I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. And for her part, she considers me analytical, honest and truthful, and she recognizes that I prefer mental activities and am willing to learn new things.
Sounds like a match made in heaven.
