The Tarot is one of the most valued and oft-used divinatory tools of modern witches and occultists. The exact origin and purpose of the Tarot are not known; the cards may have evolved out of the Hermetica of ancient Egypt and Greece. Others believed they were fragments of an ancient Egyptian book or the 'Book of THOTH'. The Tarot is two decks within one: a major arcana, which consists of 22 cards, each of which appears to represent an archetype of the human psyche; and a minor arcana, which consists of 56 cards and is the prototype of todays today's ordinary playing cards. Each of the 22 major arcana has its own symbolic meaning. The suits of the minor arcana have numerous correspondences, such as to the elements, the cardinal points, the four letters of the Tetragrammaton, Yod He Vau He, the four seasons, endeavors, emotions and so on.


Ancient Mysteries Tarot Deck
by Robert Calverley

Crafted for divination and initiation as described in Calverly's book Ancient Mysteries Tarot, this unique deck links Tarot with the magic of its ancient roots. The Major Arcana images are based on sacred temple art from the mystery schools of Egypt, Greece, Mesopotamia and India. In the Minor Arcana, images of megaliths, sacred fountains and stone temples portray the four sacred elements. The ancient stones speak and the Fool's journey springs to life as you meditate on these archetypal forms.
