The images on the Marseille Tarot cards started out as illustrations of Sumero-Bablyonian myths, preserved through the centuries on cylinder seals. They were copied by people who didn't understand them but who also had access to some form, whether written or oral, of the wisdom encoded in those myths and in Bible stories. That wisdom is identical with Sufi teachings as espoused by teachers like Ibn al 'Arabi, Rumi, and others, including Gurdjieff and his teachings about the enneagram. The myths and stories are decoded in this book using the multiple meanings conveyed by Arabic consonantal word roots and by reference to those doctrines and to modern discoveries about conditioning and the hemispheric specialization of the brain. Arabic is the closest existing descendant of the ancient Protosemitic language. The Kabbalah, long rumoured to be linked to the Tarot, is shown to come from the same sources, and originally had eight, not ten, sefiroth. The visual evidence alone is overwhelming: the mystery of where the Tarot comes from has been definitively solved.

You do not need to learn the tarot because you already know it. It is from this radical jumping off point that WTF Is Tarot breaks down the ancient art of cartomancy. This fresh, accessible and sometimes cheeky guide sheds a holistic light on how to read tarot, from the foundation of magic itself to understanding those tricky court cards to offering readings to others. In WTF Is Tarot, author and tarot reader Bakara Wintner unpacks the magic of the Major and Minor Aracana with shamanic wisdom and girl boss wit, illuminating their meaning with thoughtful anecdotes and analogies that reveal how deeply rooted these symbols already are in our everyday lives - we can feel the Moon in a howling barefoot run through Prospect Park, accept the grace of Temperance in falling in love or a divine intervention, "ghost the haters" with the Six of Swords, or identify when it's time to let go of an ex with the Flanged Man. WTF is Tarot offers far more than a refreshingly candid tutorial on card reading. Bakara goes on to investigate the magic of crystal healing, chakras, meditation and other magical practices. This young witch offers not just a guide, but an invitation for even the most mundane Muggles to welcome magic into their lives, and for experienced wizards to rediscover it once again.

IN 1909, ARTIST PAMELA COLMAN SMITH, under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite, created an innovative 78-card tarot deck that would come to be recognized as revolutionary. With descriptive pictures on the 56 minor Arcana cards, the Rider-Waite deck digressed from the tradition of tarot decks used for centuries and set the standard for nearly every tarot deck published.
This pack contains 78 full-color tarot cards as well as an illustrated instructional booklet. In 1994 a researcher working in the Italian National Library in Rome discovered a manuscript containing 80 mysterious paintings, believed to have been devised by the mysterious prophet Michael de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus. The manuscript, never published in his lifetime, was handed down to his son who later presented it to Pope Urban VIII. After that it remained forgotten and neglected. A brief glance at these extraordinary images shows how heavily they draw on the symbolism of Tarot. It is the belief of Tarot experts, Matthews and Kinghan, that Nostradamus was designing his own set of cards, drawing upon the visionary insights gleaned from his prophetic writings and visions. Now this Tarot has been brought to fruition by two modern experts and its secrets revealed for the first time. Visionary artist Wil Kinghan and New York Times best-selling author and longtime student of Tarot, John Matthews have devised a deck which incorporates Nostradamus' own images, fully updated to make what will surely be judged one of the most important decks of this age.
Vintage deck of 52 cards with miniature cards in the upper left corners and descriptive pictures with meanings on the remaining portions of the cards. Also suitable as a regular deck of playing cards. Includes instructions.
As infinite as time, as deep as the sea and as mysterious as fate, each Arcana possesses a living soul and a voice which whispers forgotten things to the hearts of all men and women. These 78 Arcana cards represent many steps in an esoteric journey which lead to the discovery of the past, the present and the future.
From a Kabbalistic viewpoint, the ancient symbol of the spiral has been used by diverse cultures on their continuum of life. In the richly illustrated Spiral Tarot deck and accompanying book, author/artist Kay Steventon explores the legends and traditions of mythical imagery, and ancient Celtic wisdom that describes our complete life cycle from birth to old age.
The Manga Tarot perfectly captures the essence of the traditional Tarot while making use of the Japanse art form of manga, making it ideal for all Tarot readers and ideal for so many people entranced by the manga style. The Manga Tarot challenges you with exciting and new color schemes and a fantastic gender inversion: cards usually featuring men have women, and vice versa. This plays with the Eastern idea of Yin/Yang and of the idea that all people--and archetypes--have masculine and feminine qualities. It will help you bust through any pre-conceived beliefs and help you develop astounding new interpretations that transcend anything you've done before! The Chinese letters printed on the cards, representing seasons associated with suits, returns the aura of mystery and otherworldliness that the Tarot once had, and helps put the real magic back into all of your readings. The accompanying booklet explains the inner meanings of each tarot card and provides a relationship-focused reading that you can use right away.
Publisher Review: For those of you familiar with Lo Scarabeo Tarot decks, you'll know that they are more apt to push the boundaries of Tarot, to play with structure, symbolism, and theme, and to reach toward the next evolutionary level of Tarot in general. This means they don't produce many decks that would be recognized as Rider-Waite derivatives. But when they do, such as with the Manga Tarot, they change just enough and add just enough to make the journey through the Major and Minor Arcana a thrilling ride filled with intriguing insights, if only we take the time to look, because another trademark of Lo Scarabeo decks is the lack of a full-sized book that dictates what the cards mean. Instead, we are given some landmarks and guides to help us on our journey. But then we are sent on our way to see what we can find, because ultimately, the journey is our own. In the Manga Tarot there are four things that overtly affect the interpretation of the cards. First, in most of the cards, figures that are usually depicted as male in the Rider Waite tradition are depicted as female in the Manga Tarot, and vice versa. This creates a change in the some of the Major Arcana titles (as mentioned above) and the numbering of the Emperor and Empress (III and IV, respectively). This technique really plays with the Eastern idea of Yin/Yang and of the idea that all people (and archetypes?) have both masculine and feminine qualities. When we look at these cards, we are encouraged to explore the feminine qualities of the Priestess (The Hierophant in the Rider Waite system) and the masculine qualities of Temperance. . . read more.
