What’s going to happen in the future? I can’t help but think of a quote from Criswell who appeared in the Ed Wood 1957 cult classic “Plan 9 from Outer Space ” We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives…..”
If you are wondering what today, tomorrow, the rest of the year or the rest of your life will bring, perhaps consult the cards in the decks below. If nothing else, you will get some self-insight and enjoy trying out these beautiful self-guided tarot and archetypes decks. These also make fun, affordable gifts for just about everyone on your list. Here are 4 unique card decks that I really like:
The Dream Big Archetype Deck Cards by Gibbs Smith Gift, and designer Nicole LaRue (Gibbs Smith September 2022 is a very cute way to reinforce positive thinking. Adorable animal cards celebrate themes of kindness, strength, and empowerment. Each animal represents one archetype―or one attribute, to help anyone from a child to an adult, stay mindful and confident each day. The Dream Big Archetypes Deck includes a little wooden display stand to display the daily card on a nightstand, desk, bathroom, or wherever you need reinforcement. ($24.67)There is also a nicely boxed Dream Big Bookmark Box (Gibbs-Smith August 2022) with 24 bookmarks,2 of each design. For just $11.90 you can give a book lover enough bookmarks for an entire year and then some. Or break open the box and add one or two to each stocking. This also makes a nice “secret Santa” gift.
These cards and bookmarks were apparently meant primarily for young people. However, in looking at the sentiments on each, they are relevant to anyone of any age. They will give you some positive reinforcement every day.
Gaze Into the Future With The Office Tarot
Are you a fan of the tv show the Office? Then The Unofficial Office Tarot is for you. It’s illustrated by Chantel De Sousa (Smith Street Books, Sept 2022), It’s a classic tarot deck but instead of the classic illustrations on the tarot cards, this deck features a character from the Office on each card. I admit that I never watched the show, but I do know that it’s adored by lots of people both in the UK and here in the United States.
This deck is compact as it doesn’t come with a book telling you how to use the cards. But the illustrations are full color and the cards are full sized. If you know the characters in The Office you really will get a charge out of this tarot card deck. And, possibly, you may find out what’s going to happen with your career and love life, too.
