Meeting the Kitty Kahane Tarot

I got the Kitty Kahane Tarot deck last year and forgot to post the deck interview.

It's not necessarily a rare deck- the English language version of it and its guidebook are, as the deck itself is German, and it's been a fun ride plugging the words of the guidebook into Google Translate in order to understand the artist's perspective (if anyone has a line on the English guidebook or is willing to part with theirs, holla at me please!).

Even without Google Translate, the images are attractive and spark the intuition with relative ease and will be very familiar to RWS tarot readers.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT YOU? ACE OF SWORDS. This deck tells the truth. Every reading I've had with it afterward has proved it so. Sometimes it's a truth I need to hear, sometimes it's a truth I need to speak. Whatever it is that may need speaking out about, it will do so. I also understand this to be a great deck for channeling messages from guides.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? JUSTICE. There's that sword of truth again. Not only telling the truth, but unafraid to weigh the consequence of the truth and perhaps help me work through how to deal with or disseminate it.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITS? SEVEN OF CUPS. Ain't nobody got time for that. That being wishy-washy, indecisiveness. And also, it speaks to its limitations about alternatives. Even with all this truth-telling there might be options I'm not seeing because the initial message of the deck is presented so powerfully.

HOW WILL WE BEST COLLABORATE? FOUR OF CUPS. I have to look up at what is being offered instead of dwelling over the impossibility of whatever I'm going through. It's easy to miss a life-line when its thrown out if you're focused only on what you are trying to escape.

TREASURE. DEATH. Surrender to that truth, and allowance of whatever may need to come through to do so. This may not be the sweetest of deck relationships, but it will be transformative and healing in its own way. 

I love this deck already.

 A translation of the Judgement card that turned out pretty well! Google Translate is the MVP

Can one learn a different language from use of a tarot deck? Probably not, but should I ever end up in a German speaking area I guess I'll have some idea of how to ask for the local High Priestess.

I think?

Probably not.
