Deck 1: The China Tarot by Der Jin

"An Eastern anthem to the beauty of the soul, this stunning collection of delicate images speaks of the magic and poetry of China. Infinite shades of emotion―joy, melancholy, love, ambition, etc.―help us identify with every well-crafted figure and scene.
The companion booklets for most Lo Scarabeo decks are in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German."

Card 1: The King of Wands

The King of Wands indicates that you will have the energy, experience, and enthusiasm to accomplish what you set out to achieve at this time. You are taking control of your life. You will motivate those around you, lead the way forward, and set a good example for those who look up to you. You do not worry about other people’s opinion of you, and you dare to be different when this Minor Arcana card appears in your Tarot reading. 

As a person, the King of Wands is a mature male who is confident, strong, energetic, and optimistic. He/She is a natural born leader. He/She may be a fire sign such as Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius He/She is friendly by nature, funny, charming, and good with words. He/She is also fearless, freethinking, motivated, and action-orientated.  He/She has an independent streak and as such, needs freedom, and will not tolerate clingy or overly needy people. 

The King of Wands does not like to let emotions stand in the way of his/her enjoyment of life. They are usually supportive of those around them and have learned to be lenient. However, the King of Wands can be self-centered, hot-tempered, and controlling. At their best, and when allowed their freedom, they proud, passionate, honest, loyal, dependable, and protective.

Deck 2: The Vanessa Tarot

"With humor, glamour and an attitude of adventure, this delightful deck invites readers on a joyrider through the Tarot. Taking their inspiration from pop culture, the sassy but sage characters of this deck playfully reinterpret traditional femal roles as they share all their special secrets. Packaged in a tin."

Card 2: The Ace of Swords

When it is time to “cut through the B.S.,” one card in the Tarot deck will do the cutting for you: The Ace of Swords. This is the card that appears when communication is in need of being clarified. That is a nice way of saying that when someone is giving you a snow job about something, the Ace of Swords is with you to cut those words to shreds, and find the clear meaning of them. 

The Ace of Swords delivers the reality of the situation to you. This is not always easy to accept, as often it is you who have been lying to yourself, denying the truth about a relationship or other intense situation in your life. This card perseveres in a quest for what is real, but your idea of what that reality might actually be is not guaranteed.

In the present position, you are clarifying an absolute in your life under which you have been serving.  The Ace of Swords is especially empowering in this position, because you are able to confront vagaries and inaccuracies in your life that are not adding up. The Ace of Swords gives you the strength to confront situations that do not mesh with your understanding of things and the presence of mind to articulate your position.

The Ace of Swords marks a wave of new energy from the intellectual realms. You may be on the verge of a significant breakthrough, or a new way of thinking that allows you to view the world with clear eyes. Or, you may have a sudden realization or conscious understanding about an issue that has been troubling you and can finally see the path ahead of you. Meditate regularly to clear away the mental chatter and make the most of this intellectual potential.
