Hidden Mirrors Eclipse Playing Cards

May 11th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

They’re not Tarot cards, and magician Juan G. Perez is making them specifically for use in magic tricks, not readings, but I really like this Hidden Mirrors Eclipse playing card deck he’s trying to produce.

In the Kickstarter video below, you can see samples of the cards and hear Perez explain what’s special about them.

Primarily it’s about the colour. Rather than white cards, he’s making black cards with white borders. He’s designed them himself and I think they’re quite nice.

For magicians, I imagine it would be a great deck to have as part of one’s collection, but I think it might also be really nice for people who do readings with playing cards.

The dark colour adds a depth, and maybe even something mysterious to the standard deck I don’t usually feel. The Aces are really nice, and I like that there’s one card that’s double backed.

I know it’s meant for a trick, but pulling the ‘Eclipse card’ might prove especially meaningful in a reading.

Visit Perez’ page and/or watch his video to see what you think. A donation of as little as $10 will get you a copy of the deck for yourself.

Moon in Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star’s Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Sunday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

The reckoning’s done and it’s finally time to dole out the rewards.  Have you done your fair share?  Are you ready to accept what’s due?

Success is coming to those who have done what they can to manifest their goals.  It may seem like manna from heaven but look again – it’s more likely compensation for a job well done.

And don’t forget to thank those who have been helping you. We’re never alone in either our successes or our failures.
