Deck of Interest—Tarot of Marseille

Feb 09 2016

Lo Scarabeo

What is the power of the Tarot of Marseille?

This revitalized version of Claude Burdel’s classic 1751 French tarot deck wasn’t reproduced as an exact replica of the earliest decks. Instead the colors have been restored to their original intensity and hue, the background has been cleaned up, and the images have been sharpened. The result is a deck containing long-standing, powerful esoteric symbols and icons created with modern technological quality.

Because Marseille became the manufacturing center of high quality, low cost tarot decks in the 18th Century, the symbolism used in those 78-card decks became the standard for decks everywhere and was carried forward into current times. These images have been used for divination for hundreds of years and thus have acquired an astral presence which this deck definitely taps into. The fact that the Minor Arcana contains numerological representations of the four suits, rather than pictorial illustrations as in the Rider-Waite deck, means that it requires additional engagement by the reader to unlock its secrets. It’s a perfect deck for those interested in numerology and the symbolism of the four directions. The boldness of the Major Arcana imagery provides easy entreé to the beginner, and the concise instruction book will give them the basic interpretations they will need to get started. It’s a must-have for every serious student of tarot. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Which angel do you need today?

Kim Dreyer has digitally rendered 44 beautiful and emotive angels to create this inspirational deck. Winged guardians from other realms permeate many belief systems and Dreyer’s inclusive imagery reflects that multi-cultural foundation.

There is a separate chart packaged with the deck that provides correspondences between angels and specific needs.

You can feel a lightness of energy as you hold the cards. Just viewing the ethereal images lifts the spirits. It’s a great deck, for comfort as well as guidance. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Fairy Tarot Cards

Jan 26 2016

Hay House

Are you talking to your fairies?

The creators of these 78 silver-edged cards refer to fairies as God’s nature angels. They created this deck so the rest of us could get to know them better. They set the enchanting illustrations in Glastonbury, England to emphasize the magic that fairies bring into the lives of those they favor. They nicknamed the cards the “self-esteem” deck because the messages in and on the cards are intended to build self-confidence and help readers reach their full divine potential. The 186-page companion book provides additional guidance towards that goal.

The cards are beautifully illustrated and layered with symbolism. The Princess of Spring plays under Joseph of Arimethea’s hawtorn tree. The Prince of Summer rides a dandelion under a full moon. The Queen of Autumn sits on a throne while magic swirls around her. The King of Winter walks alone with his friend the owl.

Supportive, inspired, and highly energetic, the deck was designed to work in concert with the Angel Tarot Cards, also created by Virtue and Valentine. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Pixie’s Astounding Lenormand

Jan 05 2016

U.S. Games Systems Inc

What do you see in these little cards?

Comprised of illustrations from the Rider-Waite tarot and “The Green Sheaf”, this 36-card petit Lenormand pays homage to Pamela Colman Smith. It is fundamentally a series of collages pieced together from Smith’s artwork. The pieces of the Rider-Waite cards add layers of meaning to the simple Lenormand images.

On the surface it’s a series of images which trigger intuitive information in the reader. For those who are familiar with Smith’s work, each card is a little mystery to be solved and built upon.

Fun, thought-provoking, and already a sensation on the web, this small deck in its metal container is a treat for beginners and seasoned diviners alike. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—The Ring Cycle Tarot

Dec 29 2015

Schiffer Publishing

Do you see colors when you listen to Wagner?

Allegra Printz was captivated by Wagner’s Ring Cycle as a teenager and never looked back. When she discovered Arthur Rackham’s 1911 illustrations for the operatic epic, it added another layer to her experience of the masterpiece. Then one day she saw the tarot images parading through Rackham’s drawings. It was a treasure chest just waiting to be opened and she got started right away. The result is a unique and powerful new tarot deck.

In merging the Rackham illustrations with the Rider-Waite® tarot format Printz was also very aware of mythic metaphors like the sagas of the Old European gods, the turbulent transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age, and the restoration of the divine feminine.

This lively 78-card deck remains true to the traditional Rider-Waite® format, to Wagner’s The Ring of the Ribelung, and to Arthur Rackham’s original drawings. The 256-page companion book describes Printz’s journey as she created the deck and the insight which she gained while doing it. SHOP FOR THE DECK

This fanciful parade of fairies, angels, dreams, doorways, magic bubbles, and moonlight is as powerful as it is endearing.
