This deck was designed as a study aid for learning the Qabalistic and Astrological relationship in Tarot. Maybe then portray scenes or even pips, each card is delineated with a glyph of the Tree of Life. The Major Arcana have a huge graph of the ten sephiroth. The sephiroth are addressed by void circles (Daath isn't constantly addressed). The way relevant to the card is attracted (in the proper shading) and the two sephiroth in this manner joined are additionally hued in. Each appropriate sephira's planetary glyph is filled in too. The upper right-hand corner of the card shows the card number; the upper left corner, the card's visionary correspondence. The base right corner shows the letter of the Hebrew letter set, the letter's number, and its name. The card's name in English and German is fixated on the lower part of the card.
The Minor Arcana show a zodiac wheel with the signs attracted. A little glyph of the Tree of Life, similar to the ones portrayed on the Major Arcana, is in the focal point of the Zodiac wheel. The pertinent sephira, just as the signs relating to the suit's component are hued in the proper shading for the component: red for fire, blue for water, yellow for air, and green for the earth. The planet appointed to the card is displayed outwardly of the zodiac wheel in a position close to the suitable sign. The image for the suit's component is in the upper right corner of the card; the card's number is in the upper left corner. The card's name and a short understanding (generally single word) are on the lower part of the card, again in English and German. The Qabalistic tasks depend on Aleister Crowley's Thoth, a bad habit of the Waite deck. The court cards are likewise named as Crowley's: Knight, Queen, Prince, and Princess. The court cards show the four letters of the Tetragrammaton in the focal point of the zodiac wheel, a bad habit of the Tree of Life. The proper letters for the court card are shaded in.
The planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have been incorporated, with Uranus allocated to Chokmah, Neptune allowed to Binah and Pluto appointed to Kether. My minor objection with the Minors is that as opposed to simply shading in the suitable sephira or letter for the court cards, the fitting image and the entirety of the ones going before it are hued in. I surmise this was to make the cards all the more outwardly appealing or simpler to separate, yet it appears to be pointless.
The booklet that accompanies the deck works effectively in portraying the cards. A down-to-business outline of the Tree of Life is given, however, those not effectively acquainted with the framework will require an extra reference, as the booklet just records the sephiroth and distinguishes different images utilized. Short understandings are accommodated the Major Arcana, the Aces, and the court cards, yet since the 2 - 10 have brief translations on the cards, no further understandings are given. One spread, "The Mindmirror," is given. It is likewise founded on the Tree of Life, however, the peruser has alluded to the book "Mindmirror: Close Encounters with Your Self," for additional data.
I suggest this deck for the individuals who are contemplating the Tree of Life and its correspondence with the Tarot. Albeit the deck isn't shown in a run-of-the-mill way, it could be utilized for readings as there is sufficient emblematic data on each card to decipher for those acquainted with the Tree of Life and Astrology.
