I got the Fox Tarot as a gift from my love, Jaymi Elford. I seem to draw Foxen things to myself (I’m not mad about it) and this is the first Fox themed deck that I’ve found. It’s just lovely. It’s astrology based, which is not my jam, but you can read the deck without the astrology aspect coming into play AND if you are an astrology nerd, you are all set.
Card Stock – It’s thick! It’s stiff and doesn’t shuffle easily at first. The thing I like about this is that it’s not going to tear and get all fucked up on the edges like thinner cardstock decks. The thing that bothers me is that it hurts a bit when I first had the deck. the more I use it, though, the better it feels.
Representation – not really an issue as the artwork is line drawings of animals and astrological symbols.
Artwork – This is one of the few black and white decks that I really dig. I think that the artwork lends itself to black, gray and white, and this one cat who shoots lasers out of its eyes and also there is a frog.
The creator of the Fox Tarot is Taylor Haigh. You can find more about Taylor, her artwork and life with critters on an island in Canada in the links below, and in the Questionnaire.
What you appreciate the most in your friends.
Understanding. That they accept me at face value and are there to support me when I need it, and vice versa.
Your idea of happiness.
Freedom to do the things I want to do.
Your idea of misery.
Feeling trapped. Being unhappy about your circumstances but having no power to change them is pretty brutal.
Your favorite colors and flowers.
I’m really into lavender and dark turquoise right now. I’ve also always loved olive green. I have so many favourite flowers; dahlias are beautiful, and blue corn flowers are pretty neat as well.
Your favorite poets.
Sylvia Plath, Dorothy parker, Rupi Kaur, Adrienne Rich, Anne Sexton, Warsan Shire, Liz Howard.
Your heroes/heroines in fiction.
My favourite fictional heroines will always be Hermione Granger, Dana Scully, Buffy Summers, Elaine Benes, Lisa Simpson and Tina Belcher.
What role does divination play in your life?
I like to use divination (mostly tarot) to ask myself questions about what is going on with me at any given time. I feel the keywords associated with the cards I draw can shed new light on scenarios in my life and bring up thoughts and ideas that I otherwise may not have had.
Your heroes/heroines in real life.
Octavia E. Butler, Rose McGowan, Amy Goodman, Alice Sheldon/James Tiptree Jr
