We all have insight and use it to make decisions. But, what does it mean to have insight? It means having moments of clarity, knowledge, a deeper understanding, or an unconscious knowing and processing of a situation. I know what your thinking, but no, insight is different than intuition. It’s like a light bulb went on and you instinctively know the answer. They say the brain already knows how to solve a problem within seconds of it revealing itself in your conscious mind. It would be great to tap into our subconscious mind to get some of the answers we are looking for. Sometimes we need a little help, and the Insight Tarot may be just what you are looking for.
The Insight Tarot was created by Stansilav Reshetnikov, a skilled tarologist and student of Carl Jung. His enchanting deck comes in a hefty, beautiful keepsake/ storage box with a magnetic closure, donning the Magician on its cover. The only complaint I have is that it does not have a ribbon to help remove the book and deck.
What is unique about this deck is that it includes 79 cards instead of the usual 78 cards, plus a very attractive full-color guidebook. The extra card is called The White Card. It does not have a number or a picture, but it does have a special meaning. Appearance-wise, the cards are glossy and beautifully illustrated. The artwork is really stunning, some of the loveliest I’ve ever seen. They are divided into two groups, the major arcana with 22 cards and the minor arcana with 56 cards.
The deck cards are a little larger than your basic size with a blue back featuring a rectangular pattern that descends to smaller rectangles. It’s very hypnotic. The sides of the cards are gilded with gold, which I think gives it an ethereal look.
The beautiful and informative 176-page guidebook features the Judgement Resurrection card on its cover. When you open the book, you are met with the content page, introduction, a message, and 17 steps plus some guidance are provided on how to use and work with these tarot cards. The guide then features full-color images of all the Major Arcana cards collectively. Then each card is featured individually and shares specific information pertaining to them, plus what the meaning is for upright and reversed. These are followed with images and explanations of all the pips – Minor Arcana cards.
As a tool for inner development, the Insight Tarot deck can be used to adjust reactionary triggers and modify learned behaviors to best suit successful encounters with real-life situations.
