This is a beautiful deck made in the Rider-Waite-Smith pattern, but with a unique Major Arcana and a focus on Celtic myth and legend. This deck is perfect for Celtic Wiccans and all Pagans drawn to Celtic lore. Beside being good for doing divination (especially if you’re willing to look at new insights with the Major Arcana), it’s also great as a guide for beginning investigations into the myths and characters of ancient Celtic belief.
Celtic myth and legend, like the Tarot itself, comes from a luminous space and provides us with a portal, connecting our everyday lives with the spiritual world.
The Celtic Tarots, a synthesis of the mysteries of Celtic lore, the wisdom of the Tarot, and the exquisite art of Gaudenzi and Tenuta, aid in the esoteric art of divination. The illustrations for the Major Arcana are shaped by Celtic myth, legend, and history.
Fomori, Tuatha Dé Danann, Ulaid, Fianna: these are the names of the main descendants of heroes talked about in the legends of the Celts. These cards tell about the feats of that ancient people whose close relationship with the spiritual dimension of nature was only recently re-evaluated.
The Celtic Tarot leads us on a wonderful trip through symbols and legends which are always contemporary. It is great for the exploration of Celtic myth and legend, as well as ideal for Celtic Pagans giving readings to other Celtic Pagans and Celtophiles.
