What is Tarot?
Tarot is a magical tool that connects you to your subconscious ancient knowledge.It’s a deck of cards that has been around for centuries! The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards, each with its own imagery, symbolism and story. The 22 Major Arcana cards represent life’s karmic and spiritual lessons, and the 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the trials and tribulations that we experience on a daily basis. Every spiritual lesson we meet in our lives can be found in the seventy-eight Tarot cards. And when we consult the Tarot, we’ll get shown the exact lessons we need to learn and master to live an inspired life. It’s like holding up a mirror to yourself so that you can access your subconscious mind. Tarot allows us to tap into the wisdom and answers that live in us all.Tarot is perfect for self-development, making choices, manifesting goals, coaching others, planning a business, writing a book, meditating—you name it. The most powerful way to read the Tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and your inner wisdom. The imagery in the cards give you instant access to your subconscious mind and your intuition. And from this place of inner power and wisdom, you can discover how to make positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future.Believe in your own magic! And Let’s get magical. You see, we are all connected to a collective, universal wisdom and our inner wisdom. And when we read the Tarot cards—and connect with our intuition—we can tap into this universal wisdom. It’s a little like connecting in with the collective mind, not just the individual mind.What is in this Deck?This deck is 78 illustrated unique cards featuring black cats and traditional Ryder Waite symbolism.

Why Black Cats?
Black Cats are the cutest. I started my business Black Cat Consulting LLC in honor of my lap loving black Cat Boo. She has been by or on my side for the last 6 years. She has sat on my lap thru job changes and moves. The purrfect and loyal friend. She is dearer to me than any human being. She is the inspiration for everything I do. I created this deck in her honor. If you love cats or have a black cat yourself I hope you pawsitively love this deck.This deck is not bad luck. In fact this deck is super lucky! Black cats have long endured cruelty and horrible misconceptions due to myths and superstitions. Black Cats make the best companion for your tarot readings because they are so elegant! Let’s start with the absolute outward beauty of the coat. Black cats look sophisticated. If the cat is kept healthy and fed excellent quality food, the black coat should be sleek, shiny and simply gorgeous. A black cat always looks as if they are ready for a formal night out on the town. In addition to the black cat’s elegance, they also look like a little panther gracefully roaming around. It’s as if you have a little piece of the wild in your home. A black cat walking or running through the house is the picture of grace, stealth, mystery and beauty.Black Cats are luck because they are not common! One in 22. There are as many as 22 recognized breeds that can have solid black coloring but the only all-black feline is the Bombay cat. The breed was developed in the 1950s by crossing Sable Burmese with black American Shorthairs with the aim to create a cat that resembled a miniature black panther.Black Cat myth and legend has ancient as a past as the history of Tarot! Cats were often cared for and fed by poor, lonely ladies who were accused of witchery and as a result, got a bad rep. Black cats were considered especially desirable partners for witches because of their ability to remain unseen in dark places and as witch hunts grew in popularity, many superstitions about uniformly black felines started to develop. Beginning in the Middle Ages, black cats became associated with Satan, witches, and witchcraft; some people went so far as to believe that black cats were cohorts to witches or even witches who had taken on another form.
Check out how cute these cards are:
The cats in this deck feature cat tags! It began as coins. It became pentacles when the tarot gained its magical associations so some decks call it pentacles. This deck calls it Coins. I wanted to keep the original tarot symbolism and I wanted to keep this deck simple and purposeful with each element!
When I think Wands, I immediately think of feathers. Cats love to play with feather wands, and it makes sense because wands are the suit of action! Feather wands are every kittens favorite! The feather, for example, is a powerful symbol that signifies honor and a connection between the owner, the Creator, and the bird from which the feather came. It symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, and freedom. It is an object that is deeply revered and a sign of high honor. Wands are the Tarot suit that corresponds to Clubs in an ordinary pack of cards. … Wands represent growth and inspiration, ambition, competition, and the desire for power; they often relate to business endeavors, but can also relate to endeavors in love and romance.
Cups are associated with water and what is more Water related then fishes. Kitties love fishes.. Cups reflect the water to show our subconscious thoughts and how they are controlled by your emotions. Cups Tarot cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Cups are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The cups in this deck have mason jars for cups. These hipster kitties also keep finding water imagery and each kitty has a yummy fish.
Swords are often double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups) to have the most positive effect. The Suit of Swords is associated with the element of Air. Air is intangible and unseen, but also in constant movement. Air can be still and mostly unnoticed, to becoming a breeze or a fierce wind. It is powerful yet refreshing and cleansing. Symbolically, the air element relates to knowledge, action, power, and change. It is a masculine energy that can lead by force and power, even though it remains unseen. In this deck I have made the swords into knitting needles!! According to zoologists, the reason for a cat’s strong affinity for yarn seems to be rooted in its natural hunting instincts. … Experts have also theorized that the movement that yarn has when rolling, dangling, or unwinding reminds cats of snakes, which would be one of their top competitors for prey in the wild.
