Tarot of the Divine A Deck and Guidebook Inspired by Deities, Folklore, and Fairy Tales from Around the World By: Yoshi Yoshitani
The path to enlightenment is unique for each of us, but many of the lessons we learn are shared stories passed among cultures and generations. With rich, vibrant art and a keen understanding of traditional tarot archetypes, illustrator Yoshi Yoshitani infuses Tarot of the Divine with worldly insight and an intriguing selection of fables and folktales from cultures across the globe.
The Major Arcana cards are brought to life with characters from beloved stories who embody the fool's journey, from the Danish fable of the naive Little Mermaid (a character who represents The Fool) to China's Beauty and the Beast (The Lovers) to the Maori legend of Hinemoa and Tutanekai (The World). The archetypes of the Minor Arcana--focused on suits of cups, coins, swords, and wands--are made richer with diverse cultural fables, ancient mythologies, and spiritual legends like the Crane Wife (Japan), Aladdin (Persia), Jack and the Beanstalk (England), Fenrir (Norway), Oedipus (Greece), the Pandavas (India), and dozens more.
As you acquaint yourself with your cards, a 44-page guidebook illuminates how these fables support traditional tarot imagery and themes. With fables from more than forty countries, this spiritual journey is a worldly experience like no other.
Janelle’s view: Tarot of the Divine is a beautifully designed tarot card deck that follows the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot archetypes and traditions. The cohesive colour palette accentuates the original style of this immersive, fantasy world filled with whimsical, yet powerful cross-cultural characters that are utterly charming. There is much to explore with this gorgeous deck which layers fairy tales, deities and folklore superbly blended for a unique divination experience. The accompanying full-colour guidebook includes a concise description of the major and minor arcana, suits and numbers plus offers basic card spreads. Card descriptions are succinct and have upright and reversed meanings alongside the corresponding story for the inspired design. The all-over, textured-feel card stock is laminated, sturdy and shuffles well. These cards invite you to interact with them. The imagery of each card’s particular meaning is open to your own interpretation and intuition offering limitless possibilities for seasoned and beginner tarot readers alike. Highly recommended.
