The Dark Days Tarot deck is inspired by the dark days of the lunar cycle, during which we are gravitationally and energetically drawn inward toward reflection. Our bodies are subtly synced to the push and pull of the moon's phases, just as the ocean's tides are. This ebb and flow rhythm encourages deeper rest and more meaningful reflection during dark moon days, and thus, a more intuitive state of mind. This deck captures the essence of these depth-inducing days, making them appropriate for all days of the lunar cycle.
Darkness is the subconscious, the dream world, the spirit realm, the unknown, and fertile ground for self-reflection. It offers an opportunity to “see” with senses other than eyesight. Answers, clues, and journeying linger in darkness. This deck exalts darkness as infinite power.
Use this deck when you need deeper understanding and inspiration for forward movement, especially when it's harder to "see" what you need or want.
Note: While the Dark Days Tarot is a fine first Tarot deck, it should be observed that the Dark Days Guidebook is travel sized meant for quick referencing. Beginners are encouraged to explore outside Tarot mythology and how-to texts to enhance their Tarot practice, should they so desire.
