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.
Donald Tyson strikes again with another innovative tribute to renowned occult writer H. P. Lovecraft. Tysons trilogy of works—inspired by the magical adventures of the mad sorcerer Abdul Alhazred—achieves brilliant completion with Necronomicon Tarot. Gruesome gods, sinister monsters, and other strange creatures lurk throughout this fully functional tarot deck. All seven rulers of the Old Ones from Tysons Necronomicon star among the decks trumps, including the great amphibian deity Dagon as the Hierophant and the ancient witch Ithakuah as the Hermit. The symbolism of these vividly illustrated cards corresponds with astrology, the elements, and the Golden Dawn, while the decks structure honors the boundaries of traditional tarot.
The enclosed book features detailed descriptions of the cards and the meaning for both upright and reversed positions. Tyson also offers divination guidance and a special divination spread.
