Venture beyond the well-traveled paths of the Rider-Waite-Smith conventions to the world of Sefirot Tarot where history, esoteric tales, Judaic Kabbalah, and the Marseille Tarot tradition combine to create a powerful tool for intuition, reflection, and growth.
Since ancient times, the mysterious island of Dioscoria has been a harbor for mystics and misfits, rebels, and outcasts. But back even before the founding of this magical country, the Sefirot Tarot—rumored to have originated in the temples of Thoth and Hekate at the dawn of time—was already a popular game used for reflection and meditation and as tool for divination.
Drawing from the history of tarot—from Rider-Waite-Smith and Marseille, to Judaic Kabbalah and esoteric lore—this deck explores the deep roots of the archetypes and symbolism as well as the many uses of tarot as a game, a powerful divination tool, and a meditation aid.
The mystical, fantastical world of Dioscoria and the art nouveau/comic style of art breathes life into familiar Major Arcana imagery and court cards, while the Minor Arcana is a simplified and elegant contrast in the pip style.
