The Unifying Consciousness Tarot by mystic Lori Lytle and illustrated by Leo Scopacasa is premised on emissions of loving forces to unify collective consciousness. These artworks are supposed to “activate the soul of the viewer,” by “achieving resonance with the inherent vibration of love” (notes the guidebook).
This tarot is molded from the conviction that we’re all one and we’re the everlasting. Readings with this deck empower you as a being of Light. The All-Seeing Eye turns into a recurring theme all through the illustrations and can be the motif on the cardboard again design. The Eye in each iteration you’ll see is crafted to activate your soul reminiscence, knowledge, compassion, recollections, and to be securely guided by the unifying consciousness of Love.
The pack of playing cards is a cosmic crew of otherworldly and divine beings, freeform entities, and common forces framed into the Waite-Smith Tarot construction, with a complete of 79 playing cards. The further card on this deck is Arcana 22: Activation. This is the important thing that attunes your All-Seeing Eye to this deck because the window by which you’ll See.
One of my favourite parts of this deck is its use of Platonic solids and reconciling sacred geometry with the structure of tarot. Lytle hyperlinks the Major Arcana to the dodecahedron, representing the factor of aether, or spirit. We’ll undergo every of the Platonic solids correspondences for the Minors as we have a look at every swimsuit.
Wands, corresponding with elemental Fire, are represented by the tetrahedron. This is the artistic spark chatting with that which you search to develop and develop. It denotes the expression of fireplace in your stomach, the character of your ardour and ambitions, your gentle, your heat, and how it’s you’re impressed. But it’s additionally unpredictable and feral.
In the Unifying Consciousness Tarot, the swimsuit of Wands is infused with the transformational energy of the Violet Flame, a high-frequency violet gentle that, whenever you meditate with it, raises you vibration, clears negativity, and facilitates non secular therapeutic. The tetrahedron is a four-sided pyramid with a flat base to assist, sides that be part of and rise to a shared level for centered power, directed to the heavens.
The swimsuit of Cups guides you to grasp and circulation along with your feelings, to make your coronary heart a sacred sanctuary. A cup is a vessel that receives and that holds house. It alchemizes and thus transforms your consciousness simply as water takes the form of its vessel.
In phrases of Platonic solids, Cups are represented by the icosahedron, or 20 equilateral triangles, a form that holds power quite than direct it (in comparison with the tetrahedron of the Wands). Note how the cups on this deck are fabricated from stable gold, symbolic of non secular perfection.
Swords are represented by the octahedron, two pyramids joined on a flat base, with eight triangular faces, and comparable to the basic Air. Swords can be utilized for both good or will, and likewise, your ideas might be your greatest good friend or your worst enemy. The cross-guard of the swords on this swimsuit are original into the All-Seeing Eye to endow you with readability of thoughts.
Pentacles are represented by the hexahedron, six sq. faces and probably the most secure of all Platonic solids. Thus, the swimsuit of Pentacles brings you grounding, sensible knowledge, and connects you to the supportive forces of nature.
Pentacles current sensible sources and the product of your work. The cash featured on this deck are inscribed with the Flower of Life per sacred geometry. This motif reminds you of the cosmic net that’s our interconnectedness.
When you first obtain this deck, gentle a candle and situate your self comfortably. This will likely be a ritualized second to get to know your new deck. Focus your gaze on the cardboard again design, envisioning it as a portal.
Here, the blue rose is symbolic of divine thriller and angelic serving to spirits. It is, notes the guidebook, “love, truth, and beauty beyond the physical realm. When you see the Blue Rose, you are on the verge of profound spiritual awakening and understanding.”
I really like that the guidebook offers you with blessings from every of the Majors. The blessing from the Devil, as an illustration, is: May you free your self from that which binds. For The Tower: May you belief in your energy to bounce again. From The Star: May you come to Self and shine just like the star you’re.
There is a chilled, inspirational, and enigmatic sphere of a pressure discipline that surrounds you whenever you work with the Unifying Consciousness Tarot. It is a unprecedented and reassuring expertise.
When occasions get powerful and you want angelic steerage, it’s good to hear that voice of Spirit crystal clear and mild, that is the deck to work with. And don’t neglect the guidebook — it’s incredible and will deepen your expertise with the deck.
While there are Blessings related to the Majors, there are Activation mantras related to the Minors. For occasion, “I can create the world I desire” for the Two of Wands, “I accept that growth and change are beneficial” for the Four of Cups, or “I am ready to move on” for the Six of Swords (proven above). “I know when to walk away” is the affirmation to activate for the Five of Swords. Seven of Swords — “I understand what’s at stake.”
The Blessings and Activations that Lytle has written for every tarot card is so incredible to work with that I form of want for quick-glance reference sheets with simply the Blessings and Activations. When you draw playing cards right into a studying, search for their corresponding affirmation mantras on the quick-glance reference sheet.
For the courts on this deck, we now have the Soul of every swimsuit (Pages, representing the pure essence of the factor), the Spirit of every swimsuit (Knights, for that which drives us to motion), the Heart of every swimsuit (Queens, the supply that nurtures and creates), and the Mind of every swimsuit (the Kings, the thinkers, planners, and the reminiscence keepers).
Courts on this deck, such because the Heart of Swords, signify your core strengths, skills, and capabilities. They spark recollections of your historical past and unravel mysteries. They reveal patterns of conduct and instruct on the way to shift patterns of conduct that haven’t been serving you. Courts additionally converse to your interpersonal relationships, household, and group dynamics.
From Scopacasa’s gallery web site, Orbital Arts Gallery, I’d make the guess that these illustrations for the deck are performed in combined media, a mix of acrylic, collage, and digital imagery, amongst different mediums. Scopacasa’s art work bringing Lytle’s imaginative and prescient to life is perfection. I really like the richness of the visionscapes. The artwork whisks you away on an astral journey.

But then the second you fan out the playing cards and begin studying with it, magic occurs. The deck comes alive in your palms. The vibrational frequencies are palpable.
