Disclaimer for new readers: Welcome! I am in the process of illustrating a full tarot deck for Llewellyn Worldwide, the artwork has been shared here with permission from the editor. There is no release date yet for the deck, but it should be sometime in 2015. It will be a full 78 card deck with no borders. The author behind the project is Ann Moura, who is widely known for her Green Witch books.

Green Witch Tarot: 9 of Cups
The 9 of Cups is one of the most uplifting and pleasant cards to receive in a reading.`` - Psychic Revelation

The 9 of Chalices marks the 45 out of 79 cards I have finished for the Green Witch Tarot deck. It’s also the illustration I like the most of all the cards thus far. I’ve always had an attraction towards the fortune telling gypsy. It’s an intriguing character.

In traditional tarot this card is named 9 of Cups and is also known as the Wish card, it is considered one of the best cards you can get in the minor arcana. The card symbolizes good luck, wish fulfillment, happiness and divination.

    LOVE this 9 of Cups – the ladybird on the crystal ball is a really nice touch… Such a warm happy feeling from this card. I found you through Chloe McCracken’s newsletter and am now really looking forward to the Green Witch Tarot being released. Keep up the great work! Love and Blessings, Lisa

    Hej Kiri
    Det er nogle utrolig flotte tarot kort du har lavet.
    Er det mon muligt, at bestille 3 sæt af dig?
    Jeg kunne nemlig meget gerne ønske mig begge sæt med din signering. På det kort, der ofte følger med, men som ikke en del af selve sættet. Håber du forstår hvad jeg mener.
    Er det muligt på en eller anden måde?
    Jeg er nemlig en del af et trekløver coven og vi bruger Ann Moura bøger.
    Kan jeg evt blive notificeret om det?
    Mange hilsner
    Serena

      Hej Serena, mange tak for komplimentet. Jeg er glad for at høre du synes så godt om kortene.

      Da de bliver udgivet igennem et forlag kan jeg desværre ikke tage imod forudbestillinger endnu, da jeg ikke har detaljer om udgivelsen endnu, der er stadig over et halvt år til min deadline.

      Men vi er tættere på udgivelses datoen, kan vi garenteret finde ud af noget. Hvis du sender mig en email med din kontakt info skal jeg gerne notificere dig når jeg ved mere. Du kan email mig på kiri(at)kirileonard.com
