REVIEW: SASURAIBITO TAROT (1ST ED)
June 27, 2017
I'm easily sold with indie decks like this - who doesn't love gold gilded edges? I think by now you guys know that I am such a supporter of indie deck creators and though shipping maybe a pain, they are always worth it.
WHAT I LIKE:
1. THE ARTWORK.
I love Stasia Burrington's artwork and the Asian feel in this deck. The deck is a combination of the western and eastern aspects where it is loosely based on RWS merged with Japanese and Buddhist ideals.
2. CARD STOCK
The cards measure 2.75''×4.75'' (70mm×120mm) on 330gsm (super smooth) glossy card stock that is silky in your hands with a sturdy lidded box featuring the card back design.
That golden shine!
It comes with a 63-page guidebook, with brief notes on the meanings and symbolism of the cards.
I love reading notes like this - I feel so special!
I bought this on her Etsy store.
Took almost 2 months before I was able to get it plus a local tax of ₱112.00.
6. THE INTERVIEW.
INTRODUCE YOURSELF: King of Swords
This is exactly the vibe I felt when I laid my hands on this deck. It has that deep overwhelming intellectual power. It called to me that I should be using it for shadow work - and that's what I do with this deck.
WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? Strength
This deck will serve as the source of your strength, determination and power as you start your journey and get to know more about Tarot.
WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? The Star
The deck may be limited to any wishful thinking - it is after all, a King of Swords. You won't be getting any sugar coating.
WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? The Hermit
As I've said this deck works well with my shadows and it helps with my soul development.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? The Fool
The best way to connect with the Sasuraibito deck is to take a leap of faith and if you are in doubt just draw a card from this deck and it will help you in the most inspiring, blunt way.
OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: Six of Wands
I may need to promote more about Shadow Work reading.
WHAT I HATE:
Sasuraibito (sometimes fondly called as the 'sassy burrito' by the Tarot Community) is a Japanese word roughly translating to 'wanderer'. Stasia and her marvelous deck's main purpose is to aid you in your journey and adventures as you seek more knowledge and get deeper into the divine. It is an incredible entrancing deck!
That concludes my review of Sasuraibito Tarot.
