The companion book by Christina Freija gives a lot of insight on the cards. It includes a "What the cat has to say" and "Mirri meditioi" (="Pussy meditates", advice to meditate) section for every card.
Due to copyright issues, i cannot obviously translate and write longer extracts of the book here. I need to check with the publisher what we can do about it. I was thinking, maybe i can translate the Pussy meditation sections to start with.

Thank you ever so much for your translation!! It will be a great help when I start reading with the deck. Shouldn´t we form a studygroup for this deck too?
I, for one, would love that.

Thanks Kissa!! I had started on them by using a web dictionary, but it was tough going.

Great service

THANK YOU so much (((((Kissa)))))

I am loving my Kissatarot, and having the keywords in English will make it so much easier to read with and enjoy this deck.

I added 3 attachment files to the first post of this thread.

First file is a Word doc with keywords supposed to be a LWB if you print it, fold it, cut it, whatever.

Second file is a b&w scan of the box, maybe it could become the cover of your homemade LWB.

Third file is a picture from the net, a colour picture of the Strength card with the name of the deck and its author.

Maybe someone with gifted little hands will be able to turn these things into a LWB :-)

Thank you for the keywords.

As an aside, I understand that English is not your first language. Now, I'm not sure whether it's Australian-only or spread throughout the whole English-speaking world, but "pussy" is a slang term for ... well ... a female body-part. For the comfort of your readers, you may want to translate the term as "kitty" or "puss". Really. It will make a big difference to the readability of your text.

Thanks for this Kissa. I just did my first reading with Kissatarot and was amazed at how well it reads. There is so much symbolism in the cards. They really get to the point in a soft way, but a direct one as well.

I wasn't sure about the ordering of the Court Cards, but have now gotten clarification about it (thanks Chiska ) and the relation to the Thoth system.

Ritari : Knight
Kuningatar : Queen
Prinssi : Prince
Prinsessa : Princess
