At Altar, we are known for featuring dozens of different tarot decks, each with their own salient characteristics and evocative motifs that inspire in-depth readings. The artists who manufacture these decks present a slightly different narrative to the Major and Minor Arcana. One of our most recent additions, The Ophidia Rosa Tarot Deck by Leila + Oliva invokes a stunning sense of naturalism, botany, and graphic minimalism. The art is moody and balanced, and leaves room for the user to interpret visual impact into their reading.
We did a sample pull of three different spread prompts to showcase this gorgeous deck. If you are learning tarot, employing these prompts is a great way to source some insight into your reading.
The Three Card Spread is a classic starting point that renders past, present, and future. If you pull a card upside down, be sure to invert it’s suggested meaning.
A True Love Spread shows the flow of a partnership and does a reading for both parties in the relationship. It begins with a self-examination, an examination of your partner, and areas of strength and bond in the relationship compared to areas of weakness and challenge. It culminates in a final card that is suggestive of the future of the relationship.
The Self-Healing Spread is a wonderful tool to revisit often as the year presents changes. It examines emotional blocks and how they are located in our behaviors in past, present, and future. Through a careful reading, one should find a pathway to releasing this block and enabling personal healing.
