The Fairytale Tarot and so wanted to own a copy that I begged my husband to buy it for me as a birthday present. He gave me the boxed set, which includes a 232-page book as well as the cards, but I have to confess I've not used it that much since I got it.
This year, one of my resolutions was to make more use of decks I own and love, but have overlooked when doing readings. Today it is the turn of The Fairytale Tarot and I drew the Two of Wands, which is depicted as the Billy Goats Gruff (pictured left).
As you probably know, this is a traditional Norwegian story about three goats who outwit a murderous troll when they want to cross a bridge to get to good pastures. The book that comes with the deck tells the full tale, then interprets it as being about modest achievements made using a cautious approach.
The Two of Wands indicates that, if you are feeling dissatisfied with your life, this is a good time for taking careful steps to improve your situation or move on to pastures new. Approach risks and dangers with sensible plans - and maybe some teamwork - and you will overcome them.
Looking at secondhand copies currently available, it seems this deck is now quite rare and collectable. I am very glad I have the set.
You can view The Fairytale Tarot on Amazon.
