There can be no question about it, Liminal 11 has firmly established itself as one of the most impressive publishers of Tarot decks on the market today. I have mentioned in other reviews how reading is a chance to connect with other people, and I like this aspect of the practice, but this deck and this guidebook are written almost completely in the second-person, and they are both so inclusive—not in the current, sometimes pejorative political sense, but in the most loving and accepting way—that I may have to start reworking the meanings of some cards with which I have become entirely too comfortable. Because I felt that this deck was aimed primarily at quirky young white women with a diverse friend group, a couple of painful ex-girlfriends, and an old, knitted beanie somewhere in the back of the closet.

Designed and created by the award-winning Tillie Walden, The Cosmic Slumber Tarot is a beautiful, hand-painted tarot deck bursting with colour and warmth. I still found the references here good enough for a novice to do a reading with the deck and look up the card meanings here as needed. You’re getting the proverbial Fool’s Journey told as if it were a lucid dream being narrated to you and each card is a progression in that story arc until you get to The Universe, when the dream ends. All the cards have handwritten titles beneath the illustration, with the Major Arcana being given both a number as well as name, and the Minor Arcana being titled in full i. You will find cats, bulls and the lion of strength in a style reminiscent of Studio Ghibli animations.Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. Thinking about tarot through the lens of dreams, where I don’t expect logical consistency, feels like giving myself permission to marinate in the abstract, rather than getting frustrated when there isn’t always a clear meaning. I didn’t know that before I wrote the bulk of this review, which tells you that the deck really is aptly named.

As you delve into the mysteries of the tarot, Tillie Walden's deck becomes a conduit for connecting the seemingly disparate parts of our existence, allowing us to journey beyond the limitations of consciousness.This hand-painted tarot deck is a kaleidoscope of colors, drawing inspiration from subconscious and subliminal states to create a deck that is both soulful and vibrant.

While the Minors were ultimately a bit simplistic for my taste, overall the deck is beautifully done.For the most part the cards are interpretations are RWS based but beautifilly re-imagined by Tillie. Dreams are only part of the equation as this deck also takes inspiration from the cosmic and the cosmos. and features numerous extras including original artwork, a tarot pouch, a special tin and a reading cloth. The Cosmic Slumber Tarot is available either as a standard or deluxe deck (which arrives in a larger, circular tin and includes a tarot pouch), I was sent the standard deck to review but was rather lucky to also receive a lovely tarot pouch for this deck which is made from a lovely turquoise blue, velvet featuring a matching logo. The Minor Arcana are mostly illustrated, although there are a couple that are more like non-illustrated pips.

However, the traditional Wands suit in this deck is named Torches, and with the imagery of torches, I am guessing that suit is still Fire. Your reading is definitely a useful way to bring those characteristics out from the very beginning of our relationship with a new deck.The font in the book is extremely small, this hasn’t been an issue for me but is something to bare in mind if you struggle with small text. Though I adore the design and colour of this case, I was slightly disappointed to find that part of the packaging has been padded with plain, brown cardboard which is sadly glued inside the beautiful case – this perhaps could have been avoided if sizing had been correct upon printing and is perhaps something which may be considered and altered in the future. If you’ve been a longtime fan of Tillie Walden’s comic illustrations, you all but must get her tarot deck.
