Chrysalis Tarot: Interviewing Divination Decks
This week, I'm interviewing Chrysalis Tarot written by Toney Brooks with paintings by Holly Sierra, published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.For context: Ten weeks ago, I wrote a post about the notion of interviewing the card decks we use for divination purposes. The intent: learning more about their purpose and energy.In that post, I mentioned that I'd be interviewing all of the divination decks I work with. That process began nine weeks ago, and has so far included:
♥ Oracle of the Angels by Mario Duguay,♥ Wisdom of the Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid,♥ Wisdom of the Hidden Realms by Colette Baron-Reid,♥ The Enchanted Map by Colette Baron-Reid,♥ The Awakened Soul Oracle by Ethony Dawn,♥ Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer,♥ The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid,♥ Sacred Creators Oracle by Chris-Anne, and♥ Energy Oracle Cards by Sandra Anne Taylor
What is the ideal purpose of Chrysalis Tarot?
The purpose of Chrysalis Tarot is to connect a person with the Earth. The connection will serve as the basis for healing through Shamanic means which have set the tone for Earth-based healing for millennia.
In this instance, Green Man feels like the aged and wise medicine man; the shaman. And so, right up front, we glimpse the purpose and the potential of this deck.Shamanic healing is ancient in history, rich in wisdom, and deep in "advancement," as I just heard. And it's great in results for those who choose its journey.One other point: It's sustainable. Its ways and means and medicines work with Earth.
What is your energy form?
The form of Chrysalis Tarot is that of the journeyer; the conveyance; the receiver with a reasoning of the path of healing.
Such an interesting draw for the answer to this question. At first glance, there's the pirate with all the symbolic attributes we might associate with him. What might he have to do with this deck's energy?At second glance, it can be noted that land, air, water and fire* are all present and accounted for. The four elements are imperative to the energy of shamanism.And then we can consider the meaning of corsair, which tells us, "a fast ship used for piracy." Let's release "used for piracy" and receive "a fast ship." There's our conveyance for our "path of healing."*The suit of spirals is the equivalent of the suit of wands in Tarot. Wands are the fire element, and so then are spirals.
Who is your ideal querent?
The ideal querent is the person who wishes to understand what lies beneath the energy of the dis-ease.
Umm... Yes. The moon is so much about that which is unseen; that which seeks to remain hidden and mysterious.The moon is all-knowing, and so to have it - her - represent the ideal querent for this deck is, well, ideal.
Who will benefit from working with you?
The person who will most benefit from working with this deck is the one who is curious and as a child; open.
After typing "open," I heard, "receptive." This divine child who is the ideal querent will remember their divinity and their connection with all that is. In this way, they will receive everything they need.
Can anyone work with you regardless of experience?
The deck is most accessible to the persons who understand the need for fire in their life.
Well... That's interesting and also understandable given the energy of this deck.What comes up around the channeled response is the need for healing of the sort that creates, in some instances, a healing crisis.A healing crisis feels like fire (those spirals, again) because it can, in effect, burn away the residue of dis-ease and make way for deep and total healing. Through that healing fire comes great change, from the inside out.As long as the person who picks up this deck is ready to feel the fire of extreme healing, it presents a great divination tool.Are you open to receive deep healing? ♥
