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.


Bruegel Tarot
by Guido Zibordi Marchesi

Using the style of medieval frescoes, Marchesi creates a window to the world of European folklore - the roots of the entire Western world - and to the universal human psyche. Artistically and symbolically inspired by the Flemish painter Bruegel the Elder, these 78 full-color images express the traditional meaning of each Tarot card through the pictorial representation of proverbs and anecdotes. The popular wisdom of the proverbs which characterized Bruegel's work underlines the significance of Tarot's Arcana.
