“…the true beauty of tarot cards is that anyone can use them! You don’t need to be psychic or possess spiritual gifts. The [Soul] cards will give you answers no matter what; answers that already lie in your subconscious.”
~ Kristine Fredheim
We saw this deck, fell in love and tracked it down to the Netherlands. There is something very evocative and sensual about the experience of working with this deck.
The Soul Cards are a luxury tarot deck made up of 78 gorgeous cards (22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana). They have a matte blush pink finish with gold foil detailing.
The art style evokes magical sigils, with exquisite, fine line drawings that dance in the space between geometry and symbolism. Creator Kristine Fredheim works with a rich symbolic language of meanings drawn from many world wisdom traditions, to create a deck that is as deep as it is whimsical.
The Soul Cards tarot deck is a treat, a deck that strays from the common path into its own beautiful territory. Made from sturdy, good quality paper, the cards themselves are pleasing both to look at and to hold.
Origins of the Soul Cards ~ Kristine’s story
“After my parents’ divorce, my mother became more open with her spirituality. At the time, I was nine years old. I can vividly remember seeing her navy blue tarot cards for the first time, laid out on our living room table. I immediately had the urge to smell them.
As a kid, you tend to do weird things, but the smell was so comforting and reminded me of a freshly printed book. I just loved it.As I held the cards in my hands, I turned them over and placed them on the table to observe the images.
Some were quite scary-looking, such as Death and The Devil, while others were more joyful, like The Lovers and The Star. I probably asked my mother a million times what each card meant. She made her own personalized summaries for me, which I remember to this day.
Following her death in 2012, I wanted to create my own deck of tarot cards to show her my love and appreciation for introducing spirituality to my life. So, Momma, these cards are for you!”
