An amazing fellow 78 Mirrors student very kindly gifted me her Lumina tarot deck after I feel in love with it.
One of the first things I do with a new deck is interview it… For me, it’s a fun way to start using the deck and get familiar with the cards.

What is your most important characteristic – Maiden of Pentacles
This beautiful card is about possibilities and potential as well as blossoming dreams and inspiration. Given the gorgeous art work, the deck is definitely inspiring and I find it quite energising. I feel like they are gently nurturing but also pushing me out of my comfort zone.
What are your strengths – 5 of Cups
The book which comes with the deck says this card is about healing or self destruction. Given the context I’m going with healing from self destruction which tends to be how I read the five of cups anyway. The card is also about being stuck, having difficulty accepting something or letting go of it. Tying yourself to your pain means you can untie yourself. I see this deck as being helpful in that process; helping you to see where you are causing yourself pain and then releasing it.
What are your limits – Judgement
The cards alone cannot change things. I need to step into my power, I need to work on my understanding. Further, if I am not open to hearing the truth, I can limit my interpretation of the cards and hence limit the role the deck could play.
How can I best learn and collaborate with you – Temperance
The book actually says “this is a card of practice”. It doesn’t get more blatant than that! Further, it’s about taking the wisdom from the readings and actually melding it into my life. Consciously choosing to take what I discover and use it to harmonise myself and create balance in my life. I’m good at getting insight from the cards and then not really doing much with that.
What is the potential outcome of our relationship – Knight of Cups
A new venture which ignites your heart and soul. Following your heart over head. Creative action and passion. Sounds exciting!
