Hi everybody! It’s deck switchup time.This week I will start using a new deck this week, created by the visionary artist Tzadkiel for the forecast and her art will carry us through the spring. I chose this deck because the Hebrew on these cards takes this deck to a different level when it comes to the mystical understanding of the cards. It involves a lot of Qabalah and I’ve only scratched the surface of what’s hidden beneath. Each week I will try my best to incorporate the Qabalah references into the forecast but this week my mind was blown from the puzzles in the Hebrew so I didn’t have the words to explain what was implied. This should be an interesting journey for me so thanks for coming along with me. Also, Tzadkiel is is my first Magdalena Tarot partner, a concept I thought of to get the work of independent Tarot artists out there through exposing their work via the forecast. To find out more about presales, please visit her site linked through her name.
