I have the extraordinary privilege to preview the galleys for the Major Arcana of the upcoming Mystic Mondays Tarot by artist and designer Grace Duong. She’s launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her deck, so be sure to check it out here.
The deck is called “Mystic Mondays” in reference to its use as a projection or divination tool to use on Mondays, for setting intentions, connecting to spirituality, and personal empowerment, every Monday. It’s about beginning each week mystically. The Mystic Mondays Tarot is for you to set intentions on Monday and set forecasts for the rest of your week. “By creating space to connect with your inner voice,” says Duong, through the Mystic Monday Tarot, “you learn to trust your own intuition and to let it be a guiding force.”
Duong based the deck on the Rider-Waite-Smith, but gave the classic imagery a modern-mystic makeover. Utilizing color symbolism and color psychology to showcase the archetypal expressions of each card, Duong has created a vibrant, visually stimulating deck that has a chic vibe to it.
