Deck Questions

There are many ways to use tarot. Some readers pull one or two cards a day to see how the energy of that card will show up. It’s a little like taking the day’s pulse. Others prefer to wait until they have a question or need clarity on a situation. Some do both!

You can be as creative as you want with tarot. Here are a few ideas of how someone, especially a younger reader, could put Faunabelle Tarot to good use:

  1. Tarot Club—Instead of a book club, start a tarot club!
  2. Daily Pull—Pull a card every morning and see how it turns up in your day.
  3. Night Pull—Pull a card every evening to reflect on how you encountered it that day.
  4. Dream Ritual—Before going to sleep, pull a card and pop it under your pillow. Journal what dreams you had in the morning.
  5. Learn Tarot—Faunabelle is a great place to start as we’ve distilled the core meaning of each card while including symbolism in the illustrations.

    Faunabelle Tarot is a good fit for:

    • Children from the ages of 3-12
    • Pre-teens and teens interested in learning tarot
    • Tarot beginners of all ages
    • Long time tarot readers who would like to reconnect to the basics
    • Tarot deck collectors
    • Art collectors
    • And anyone looking to invite more compassion and self-reflection into their life.
Rather than bypass the parts of life that challenge us, tarot acknowledges that change can be scary. When we’re going through a hard time, It feels good to have our true experience mirrored and compassionately addressed. Tarot doesn’t skip the bad days and the hurt feelings. It includes them. Often, they show up as the “scary cards”.

— When Cobra Death slithers by, something is coming to an end. Even though it may hurt to say goodbye, Cobra Death encourages readers to let go and give thanks for the time it was part of their life.  “Trust the process” he says, “everything is working out just as it should”. 

— Tower Vulture reveals that “life gives us a tumble-down sometimes so we can make room for something new even though we don’t know what it will be yet.” When pieces of their world break away, readers are encouraged to trust that life is magically rearranging itself so something bright and wonderful can begin.

— The Ten of Swords helps readers understand that sometimes, the healthiest thing they can do is to surrender to what is. The traditional Rider Waite depicts a man lying face down with ten swords in his back. Faunabelle replaces those swords with feathers. The imagery is still there, but much softer and palpable for young readers.

— The Five of Pentacles can also be a scary card to receive. Traditionally, we see two people dressed in rags and experiencing some crisis such as poverty and homelessness. Faunabelle shifts the scene to a thought bubble where the main character is thinking of worst case scenarios. In this card we learn when feelings of not-enoughness arise, we can observe them like clouds that come and go.

Faunabelle Tarot compassionately acknowledges the good, the bad and the in-between.  Even though outer circumstances are constantly changing—sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse—we can cultivate the stability of greater ease on the inside no matter what happens on the outside.  
Rather than ignore uncomfortable feelings, Faunabelle Tarot encourages readers to accept each moment as it comes without judgement or wanting it to be different than what it is.
For instance, Hanged Possum shares “It’s harder if you fight it. If you can learn to simply accept this very moment, you will be able to welcome the moment after as well.” 
Justice Spider recommends having compassion for others: “Some people were never taught to weave beautiful webs. Their strands were made in homes full of anger, pain, and bad feelings. Maybe they simply don’t know how to be kind even though deep down, they are the people who need love the most.” 
On no good, very bad days, Strength Lion reveals that “compassion cradles our hearts in grace, lifting us above the bumpys, lumpys and grumpys.” 
And for our last example:  Devil Goat shares that sometimes acting out points to underlying feelings of hurt and frustration. When readers pull this card, they are encouraged to follow their behavior just like a detective would to see where it stems from.
Faunabelle Tarot encourages making friends with all our feelings. In doing so, we strengthen our capacity for kindness towards others and compassion for ourselves.
