(0) The Fool
Keywords: Trust, awareness
The fool is the only card in Asra’s deck that doesn’t depict an animal figure. This is because it is the patron arcana to the MC.
Upright, this card reminds us not to let insecurities hold us back. Don’t worry about the opinions of others and make the leap. Let curiosity, optimism, and trust guide you. Things may seem uncertain, but you have everything you need for the venture ahead.
Reversed, the card tells you to remember that actions have consequences and to take responsibility for them. Don’t overthink things, but beware of acting rashly. Don’t pretend things are what they are not.
(1) The Magician
Keywords: Skills, attention
The magician in Asra’s deck is represented by a fox and is Asra’s patron arcana.
Upright, now is the time to take action. Stay focused and enjoy the magic of everyday invention.
Reversed, the magician card suggests that old tricks may no longer work, and it may be time to learn some new ones. Work hard if you want to see things transform, and be wary- this card can suggest the warping of truth. Not everything you hear is truth, even from charismatic mouths.
(2) The High Priestess
Keywords: Wisdom, memory, intuition
The High Priestess card is represented by an owl and is Nadia’s patron arcana.
Upright, this card urges you to listen to your dreams and follow your intuition. The world is mysterious and holds something fruitful for you, whether that fruit is behind secrets or clarity.
Reversed, this card reminds you not to lose touch with your intuition. Don’t close your mind to all the mysteries; you need to work hard and take action to uncover the fruit behind them.
(3) The Empress
Herb: Dong Qai
Element: Earth, air
Keywords: Connecting mind and body, imagination
The animal on this card appears to be a cow, and is the patron arcana of Nasrin.
Upright, this card tells you that now is the time to nurture your relationships and cultivate connections to others. Luxury is at your feet.
Reversed, this card suggests trouble in paradise. Focus on yourself and don’t sacrifice for the sake of others.
(4) The Emperor
Zodiac sign: Aries
Keywords: Logic, reason
The representation of this card is a bull and is Namar’s patron arcana.
Upright, trust your experiences and learn from mistakes. You have much power, but use it responsibly. Exercise self-control and master yourself, and your destiny will be in your hands.
Reversed, the card reminds us to be flexible. Don’t hold too tightly to your empire; it needs room to flourish.
