REVIEW: ARCANA IRIS SACRA TAROT

December 27, 2019

This is the second time I bought a deck from Labyrinthos and they do not disappoint. Tina Gong is really nailing this.

WHAT I LIKE:

1. THE ARTWORK & CARD STOCK.

The cards are slim with 2.36 inches x 4.75 inches and has 350gsm high quality matte card stock - shuffling is a breeze!

'The Arcana Iris Sacra, translated roughly from Latin as the "Mysteries of the Sacred Rainbow" is a vintage-inspired tarot deck, drawing upon the dense and complex traditions of the Golden Dawn, the Kabbalah and astrology.' - Labyrinthos

It has gold foil stamping on the back, a book themed box with your LWB.

Gold gilded edges. I'm a sucker for gilded edges.

2. GUIDEBOOK

It has a handy LWB.

3. AVAILABILITY

You can order Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot here

4. SHIPPING

Arrives in 3 days via DHL (worth the shipping fee if you ask me). 

5. THE INTERVIEW

INTRODUCE YOURSELF: VII of Wands

VII of Wands is a card of competition and it's a sad fact that people can feel threatened when they see you succeed. This deck will help you will remind you to set boundaries and teach you how to hold your ground.​

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? X of Wands

In Tarot, Tens usually means completion and the X of Wands signifies that even if you were struggling to complete a goal, the end is near. This deck is a combination of the traditions of the Golden Dawn, Kaballah and astrology which is why I bought it - so I can go deep with Tarot. It's going to take a while and I look forward to how rewarding it will be.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? III of Cups

The III of Cups likes to work independently. In this case, it is asking for my full attention and focus as I try to further my Tarot studies.

WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? Princess of Disks

What I look forward to learning is how I should be grounding myself more and finishing work that I've started is rewarding.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? II of Disks

The best way to connect with this deck is to have a balanced relationship with it. Put in the work and the time to further get to know each other.

OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: 9 of Swords

I can see that I might have a hard time connecting with this deck and I need to do a lot of work with it. I do hope that I will be able to spend time with it as shown in card 5 and commit to it.

WHAT I HATE:

Not really 'hate' but the LWB should have been more informative since it is combination of the 'dense and complex traditions of the Golden Dawn, the Kabbalah and astrology.'

 

SCORE: ★★★★

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I'm always a fan of Labyrinthos and their fast shipping thanks to DHL which is why I really save up to buy something from them since I always tend to add more products in my cart than what I really plan to buy. 

That concludes my review of the Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot.
