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.
Tarot of the Saints
A Gnostic Christian Tarot. Saints lend themselves remarkably well to correspondences with the archetypal images of the Tarot -- St. Francis, a Fool for Christ; St. Nicholas, the Miracle Worker (Magician); & St. Mary Magdalen, the First Papesse (High Priestess). Saints serve as examples of ideal behavior, values, & outlook. By nature, they are well suited to dispense insight & wisdom through the cards. In this beautiful new deck, their personalities bring life to the abstract images of the Tarot. This is a powerful new tool for accessing the deepest mysteries of the mystical Christian tradition. These cards bring to life the spiritual force of these venerated beings in a way that is at once immediately accessible & deeply meaningful. The full-sized book included in this kit was specifically written to accompany the deck. It includes fresh, insightful interpretations, a history of the Tarot, instructions for divination & meditation, & a succinct overview of the Western mystery schools. Contains 78 full-color tarot cards & a 264 page book.
