This evocative tarot was inspired by P. D. Ouspensky, the Russian philosopher who explored the idea of higher dimensions of existence. Filled with metaphor and emotion, this deck is an ideal springboard for profound personal reflection.

Boxed deck includes 78 full-color cards and instruction booklet

 

Publisher Review:

This is a study in balances. It sets the historical opposite the modern, the intellectually symbolic opposite intuitive response, and self-knowledge opposite self-evolution. It also sets Major Arcana opposite Minor Arcana and card front opposite card back. After carefully creating all these delicate balances, it proceeds to simply turn traditional Tarot usage on its head. This is a deck that is created for a purpose other than divination. Intrigued? I was, too. 

First, the deck shakes up your world as soon as you open the pack. If you are anything like me, instead of reading the booklet, I go straight for the cards. Flipping through the Majors, I do not see the familiar titles: The Fool, The Magician, The High Priestess, etc. Instead, I see Man, Man, Divine, Universe, Divine, Man, etc. What the heck? Continuing on, I see pips instead of illustrated Minors. Normally I hate pips, but these…these are practically illustrations, but not quite. They are devoid of human figures but are definitely not devoid of life, movement, or energy. What kind of deck is this, I wonder? . . . read more.

Of the many esoteric subjects studied by ceremonial magicians, alchemy is often considered one of the hardest and most arcane, while the tarot is thought to be one of the most accessible and "hands-on." Historically the language of alchemy, with its inscrutable riddles and metaphor, has baffled many students, while the images of the tarot are more... read this article
