The Eight of Disks in the Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

With the Sun in Virgo and The Luna Sol Tarot being delivered from the printers, what finer time to reflect on that busy Minor Arcana, the Eight of Disks.

The Fool in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

It’s strange how one of the most interesting  Major Arcana cards (from a numerological perspective) arguably doesn’t have a number at all. Here is a Zero that could represent nothing but is the source of everything. It is the beginning and it is also the end.

The Two of Cups in the Luna Sol Tarot (PLUS a special offer!)

By Darren Shill

There is something weird that happens between the Aces and the Twos in the tarot. Aces always feel special. All that potential and pure essence of the suit gives them a presence that stands apart from the other cards.

The Ace of Swords in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Sarah Wray

The Ace of Swords is a personal favourite of mine – one of those cards appeared in my earliest tarot readings, at exactly the moment I needed it to, and has appeared often since. It feels like something that’s connected to me at least for the moment. Frankly (and maybe a bit weirdly!) it feels like my card. It’s the first card I go looking for when I’m checking out a new deck. Usually identifying more with the watery emotions depicted by the cups suit (I am a Pisces, after all!), it’s necessary to come up for air from time to time and get some clarity. It certainly was for me on my 30th birthday, when I gave myself a reading while in a bit of a rut, and it has served as inspiration and reminder that, if I try, I can easily see what has to happen and, crucially, I already have all of the tools within me to set off on that path.

Behind the Back of The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

This week’s Tarot Tuesday reveal was the picture you will see most frequently in Mike Medaglia’s The Luna Sol Tarot – the reverse of the card. This truly gorgeous image is largely self-explanatory; the glowing half-moon (Luna) beneath the blazing sun (Sol). But what may be less clear is the central symbol of black and white concentric lines. This it’s this element I will focus on here.

The 7 of Discs in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

Amidst the height of summer, when we slow through necessity and often enjoy a break from toil, what finer card to reflect on than the 7 of Disks? Those fruitful Disks and gardening tools suggest that this respite did not happen by chance, some work and a little planning probably brought you to this stage of achievement. The card suggests you should take stock of this moment; be present and look around. If we constantly move from task to task where is the reward in life or, perhaps, when do we get a chance to be grateful for those rewards.

There is a myth that is often repeated when discussing The Hanged One, and that is Odin’s suffering upon Yggdrasil, a giant ash tree known as the World Tree.

Creating the Luna Sol Tarot

By Mike Medaglia

At the time of writing this, I have been completely done the artwork for the Luna Sol Tarot for about a month. I feel just enough recovered from the emotional labour to begin to reflect on the process!

The Star in the Luna Sol Tarot

by Darren Shill

The tarot Star is always a pleasure. It’s a pleasure to see in a reading and a pleasure to think about (tarot nerd alert!). The Star is a card that, no matter how long I spend studying it, there always seem to be another level to discover. I seem to love what I don’t know about the card as much as I love what I do know. So it brings me a great deal of joy to talk about The Star in the Luna Sol Tarot!

The King of Disks in the Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

As the first Court card to be revealed in the Luna Sol Tarot, there are a few things within the King of Disks that you would not notice unless the full deck was laid out before you. However, seeing as you’ve taken the trouble to read our blog, the least I can do is share some secrets! But first, some basics:

6 swords luna sol

6 of Swords in the Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

The suit of Swords is not always looked on kindly by tarot readers. Maybe this is repaying the favour, as Swords represent the element of air, the realm of the intellect, and as such can at times be emotionally cold, perhaps even verging on the cruel. And maybe we feel a little bias when borrowing the Eastern concept that the intellectual mind is something to be overcome in our spiritual development (which is strange when you are told the Ace of Swords is probably the most spiritual of all four Aces). Either way, it is not uncommon for a reader to occasionally wince as if sliced by the card when a Sword appears.

The 7 of Cups from the Luna Sol Tarot

by Darren Shill

It comes as no surprise to anyone that the tarot contains a few apparently dark themes. Pop culture often focuses on cards like Death, The Devil and The Hanged Man; maybe that’s because, unfortunately, nothing sells like bad news*. And if you’re of an older generation, maybe you get an unsettling Tales of The Unexpected or Live and Let Die vibe (if a gif exists of Roger Moore looking weird when Solitaire reveals The Lovers, please no-one send it to me). It might not be until your first proper look that you see the cards that fizz with joy, like The Sun, 10 of cups or The Aces. Of course, if the tarot is going to reflect life, then it needs to cover the full spectrum of our experiences, both difficult and wonderful.

TEMPERANCE FROM THE LUNA SOL TAROT

by Darren Shill

It’s been an exciting few weeks for Liminal 11, not least because we’ve finally started unveiling the beautiful images that make up Mike Medaglia’s positive, warm deck, The Luna Sol Tarot! After many months of planning and gushing over other creators’ decks, it felt like a long wait to finally show you these cards. It feels great to have them out in the world! In case you missed them, Strength and the Ace of Wands are pictured below.

The Ace of Wands from Mike Medaglia’s Luna Sol Tarot

Ace of Wands from the Luna Sol Tarot

by Darren Shill

Last week, we revealed the first Major Arcana card from the Luna Sol Tarot: Strength. Now we move into the Minor Arcana, and how apt that we start with an Ace; even more so that it is the Ace of Wands, the suit that is commonly ordered before the others, and with reason. Wands in the tarot have a natural twig-like appearance, often with green budding shoots, as opposed to being some finely-crafted mystical tool. Nature has kindly performed all the hard work here. Wands are a natural wonder! View Post

Strength from The Luna Sol Tarot by Mike Medaglia

Strength of the Luna Sol Tarot

by Darren Shill

Cards on the table, I write as a biased observer. I have watched Mike Medaglia’s Luna Sol Tarot gently emerge to life with wonder, enthusiasm and delight as each new card appeared. And with so many wonderful options, including an amazingly narrative-packed Minor Arcana, it was no easy job to help decide which card image should appear publicly first. Thoughts were divided between Strength and Justice, just as these two cards jostle in position between numbers 8 and 11 on so many decks. But of course, the inner resilience and gentle power of Strength could not help but win through. View Post
