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.

Celtic Tarot
by S. Tenuta & G. Gaudenzi

Like the Tarot itself, Celtic myth and legend arises from a luminous space to connect the earthly experience to the spiritual world. The Celtic Tarots combine the mysteries of Celtic lore, the wisdom of the Tarot, and the exquisite art of Gaudenzi and Tenuta. Traditional in structure, the deck features fully illustrated pips that reflect the complexity, passion, and pain of daily life. The first 10 cards refer to the legends of conflict between the Fomori and the Tuartha De Danann (the era of myths). Trumps 10-14 are linked to the epic cycle of the Ulaid (the epoch of heroes). The remaining Arcana illustrate the legend of the Fianna (the era of history). All cards are labeled with Italian, English, French, German, and Spanish titles. Includes 78 full-color cards and 14-pp. fold-out instruction sheet in English.
