I’ve worked with the Motherpeace Tarot a few times before this deck interview. It’s been a tentatively approached collaboration. Most of the tentative was on my part however, as the Motherpeace hasn’t been shy or hesitant when I’ve cast the cards with her. I took her with me on my ocean vacation though, and after that cleansing energy and storing her with ocean washed stones I want to know better how to work with this deck.
- WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT YOU? TOWER.
- WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? CHARGE OF THE STAR GODDESS + STRENGTH
- WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITS? DEVIL.
- HOW WILL WE BEST COLLABORATE? 8 OF WANDS.
- TREASURE. MOON.
I see I am to be set on fire. Unsurprising. Especially as my very first experience with the Motherpeace was a fiery one that provided the necessary heat to inspire very necessary change. The Tower coming up mirrors that fire, indicating that this is a deck of wild transformation, often sudden and always necessary. No easy answers but they will often be as clear as the unambiguity of a tumbling lightning-struck tower. For the Strength position I unintentionally pulled the poem included as a card in this deck. I never meant to keep in the stack, but now I’m not so sure I’ll remove it. Clarified by Strength (ha, Strength in the Strength position!), I am drawn to the words “I call upon your soul to arise” and the ways in which they match the fire setting intensity of this deck. The Devil in the limited position shows me that this deck doesn’t do strictures very well, and thank goodness for it. More fire with the Eight of Wands calling me to cast the cards boldly and with intention to uncover the potential treasure promised by the Moon (and some water, finally!).
