Cat-Rot cards (Pookies World, 2014) is a cute, poker-sized deck. Each card features Pookie, and as Bev pointed out in the comments on Monday's reading, this cheeky creature has some similarities to Simon's Cat :D The cards are also populated by Pookies friends/minions, a variety of mice, hedgehogs and butterflies for the most part.
cards can, for the most part, be associated to traditional tarot
meanings. However, sometimes it is a bit of a stretch. This does open
the cards up to broader interpretations, or you can just stick to your
regular understandings, making it versatile in readings.
The Court cards, too, work quite nicely. Here, we
see the King of Wands looking quite regal, sat on a throne, with a
hedgehog acting as fan wallah! Pookie wears a crown and holds an orb,
symbols of leadership and taking a broad perspective, while the throne
is red, colour of fire and dynamism, associated with the suit of Wands.
surprises in the Ace of Wands. Why is Pookie upside down in a tree?
Could this be an unforeseen consequence of him grabbing an Ace of Wands
opportunity with more energy than sense? :D
There is something so charming about this
deck that I hardly mind the 'strangeness' of some of the imagery. With
one exception! I'm totally flummoxed by the Knight of Cups and the
Star! Was this just a mistake? The two are basically identical other
than the colour of the butterflies. And while I can relate this image
to the Knight of Cups - seeing things from a strange, emotional
perspective or getting himself into tricky emotional situations - I
don't see the connection to the Star at all!
