Faery Wicca Tarot by Kisma K. Stepanich (Author), Renée Christine Yates (Illustrator): A card-by-card feature by TAROT Zamm
The One Tarot Dedicated to the Faery Tradition
This deck is unlike any other. It has five sections with 40 Element cards (10 for each of the four magickal elements, matching the pip cards of the Minor Arcana), 16 Helper cards (all with figures from Celtic mythology) that are similar to the court cards, 22 Ancient Ones which are like the Major Arcana, and extra cards featuring the Power card and the four Gift of Faery cards.
Although unique, this deck is similar to and feels like a standard Tarot; it can work with any divinatory spread you like. To make divination with this deck easier, it comes with a 180-page mini-book that features meanings for each card when used in a reading plus 15 different layouts you can use.
The book also describes the symbolic and mythological meanings of the cards. The imagery of the cards will carry you to another world. Combined with the information about them in the book, this set becomes a virtual training system in the Faery Wicca faith. Use them to steep yourself in the Faery tradition.
The Faery Wicca tradition is based upon ancient Irish myth and legend. It brings to life the ancient gods and goddesses who can guide, comfort and imbue you with spirituality and power.
The symbolism on these cards brings forth that vision in a way that will inspire you to a greater appreciation of the Faery Wicca path, a deeper understanding of yourself, and the ability to use the power of the Tarot.
