A Declarative Tarot Deck ~ Learning to Focus From the Inside First
This deck is moves away from the traditional focus on how the world impacts your life and refocuses on how you are key to how your responses and actions establish how you experience your life. Traditionally, tarot was a teaching tool to gain insight into the mysteries of our purpose and spiritual connection to God, Source and Soul. The Declarative Deck removes the labels and stories that are no longer needed for the next step of becoming Divinely Human. The cards now challenge you to focus on your choice process and how that creates the path you experience.
The first tarot decks before the mystery schools were for fun and fortune telling. The mystery schools came about during the Edwardian Era, and became what we are familiar with today. They offer a more esoteric approach about light and shadow, right and wrong and starkness of life. After awhile underground, the tarot became more mainstream and now there are over twenty-thousand plus decks and oracle decks.
This deck is not about severity. It is about what is or is not flowing and shows you how you might have consciously or subconsciously contributed to what you are experiencing at that moment. What choices did you make that brought you to this life experience? What role does your fears, hopes, wants and people in your life, contribute to your life experience? Why do you feel you are not meeting a purpose? Are you feeling a shift in your spiritual focus or need to liberate yourself from patterns of habits and conditioning? While the deck cannot tell you what to do, it will show you how your choices are participating as a cause that the resulting effects are what you are sensing or feeling. The deck is GPS - a General Pointer of Spirit/Soul guidance.
The path to authenticity or self-declaration is not about gender, color, race or religion. It's not about where you were born, what your family is or is not, or what career or success you are living. The path to self-empowerment through claiming your sovereignty is about declaring your presence through thoughts, feelings, passions and actions. You begin to write you life story instead of letting others write in your life journal. This requires each of us to face the way we see ourselves and own our choices; the cause and effect of our life. It sounds complicated but it really simplifies the deck and makes it a more fun and invigorating way to see yourself as a work in progress.

Some readers, whether experienced or not, will most likely be able to recognize a message from each card, and be able to dive into connecting quickly. This deck uses the tarot system but, has been adjusted to move tarot into the next phase of what it means to be divinely human. Readers of the standard tarot deck and the tarot system, will be able to recognize each card, suit, and arcana in this deck. To begin, we suggest is to lay them all out and visually connect. Or take your current deck and match the cards to compare and gain insight and see how the deck works. Or you can let the deck speak on its own.
