Universal Fantasy Tarot, a deck published by Lo Scarabeo. This is a slightly non-traditional deck, with a fantasy-based motif. The colours are vibrant, the scenes somewhat surreal.
Today's card is the Five of Cups. A man stands at a low window framed by pillars. He wears an ornate, armoured-looking top which seems almost organic, with a flowing red tunic beneath. Outside the window we see a vast, futuristic city and a high walkway, with carriages and people travelling along it. Inside the room there are three over-turned cups; on the windowsill to his left, and behind and to the left of him. To the right, on a chest, stand two full cups. His pose is despondent, an air of heaviness surrounds him, yet he gazes out, and in the distance we see a lake and mountains.
My affirmations based on this card are:
I release the past and look to the future.
Opening to nature helps me tune into my emotions.
I leave behind difficult emotional situations and become more open.
