Catching up on Lisa Sterle’s Modern Witch Tarot deck

Lisa Sterle‘s Modern Witch Tarot is something Liminal 11 has had our eyes on since our earliest days as a startup. Having seen Lisa’s now-viral “Everything is Fine” 10 of Swords design, we were hooked. So imagine our joy when we had the opportunity to publish the deck! Since we first announced the publication back in April 2018 (a year and a half before our planning autumn 2019 publication date), we’ve had Lisa’s fans storming the gates to ensure they don’t miss out. (*HINT* sign up for our newsletter and we assure you that you’ll be among the first to know when pre-orders open!)

The Empress in The Luna Sol Tarot

By Darren Shill

We hate to admit playing favourites, but all tarot enthusiasts have a particular card that has a personal spark. For me, it is the Empress (Mike‘s is The Hermit and Sarah‘s is the Ace of Swords, although Temperance calls out often!). Had you asked me when I was a younger reader, no doubt I would have chosen something wilder or stranger, but over the years the warmth and compassion of the Empress has melted resistance away. Now she stands apart.

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.

How to Read Tarot Cards

by Darren Shill

Congratulations! You’ve chosen your deck! (Was it The Wild Unknown, RWS, Starchild, Thoth or an interesting Kickstarter? Do tell!) You’ve studied the meanings. You’ve told your friends that Destiny’s map is within your hands… But how do you actually read the tarot?

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:

An Interview With Lisa Sterle

If you’ve been paying attention, then you’ve probably seen us shouting about the very exciting news that we’ll be publishing Lisa Sterle’s truly fabulous Modern Witch Tarot in autumn 2019. Thanks to Lisa’s incredible fans and their overwhelmingly positive response to her work, we saw a few snippets of the deck (one of our favourites is the Ten of Swords, shown above) and just had to jump on the chance to publish it.

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.
