So this lady takes a blank piece of paper, draws a picture and now it can predict the future? Do I have that correct???

Yup...see, first she takes the piece of paper, and gently and lovingly cuts it down to the appropriate size, all the while windchimes are playing softly in the background by the sun-warmed breeze.  Then, see, she meditates over each piece of paper, thereby imbuing it with peace and tranquility.  She probably hums softly while drawing the picture, so the image developing beneath her lily-white hands can absorb more of her inner-spirit.  Once the picture is complete, she ever-so-gently taps the panda's forehead, bringing it to life, introducing the panda to the universe.  The universe, in turn, is so impressed with this new lifeform, it gifts the panda with future sight.

How do we know you didn't read the article?

No, not really. While it is a tarot deck, if you skimt he article (like I did), the cards come with descriptions of the bears depicted in them. It's more like telling little stories about the bears, that are comforting. The 3 of Swords bear look impaled and dead, but the description is just that particular bear is melodramatic because it had a shiatty childhood. Which, we all know somebody like that. But the description is saying that bear legit had it hard, so we (the readers) accept the melodrama.

It's more like a bunch of little stories to ground the anxieties of whoever reads with them. It doesn't look like it takes the fortune-telling seriously. Or, iut uses the fortune-telling as a conceit to help the readers chill out about the drama llamas in their life.

I would buy this deck for a moody teenager in my life, but my relatives have aged-out into the college crowd. I have a few grownup firends who would appreicate them, but those friends are already making a living as artists selling similar things on Instagram and as "influencers" etc.

You really are over-inflating the woo in the deck. It looks pretty far from woo to me.

Yeah yeah welcome to Fark, nobody reads the article, etc.
