Tarot for Magick (majors)


In order to be on the trade train, as I am short of decks to swap, I created this one-off mini deck today (41x84mm) but wanted to share it with you all before it goes to its new home.

27 hand cut cards. Hand drawn in silver then some metallic colour added.

22 standard majors... plus 4 aces and a significator card for use in spells etc.

Love them

I have never used cards for magik, I use candle magik, but perhaps I will look into this further

Good luck with your cards

Thanks Glad someone likes it. Was beginning to think everyone was in stunned silence, and not in a good way!
In future editions I think I might add a variety of different Aces in Pents, Discs, Coins, Cups, Vessels, Fire, Pools etc for every magickal need! But I don't want people to think this is just for spells and stuff... just the extra cards are. The majors work as any normal majors only deck would.

I might do a full 78 card deck in big cards next

Out of interest, how many people on AT are tarot users who are also witches/magicians/experimenters /magic wombles ? Is this sort of thing too niche?

I really like the simplicity and pureness in the deck.

Thanks - that was what I intended

Luckily no-one picked it on the trade train *phew* and I'm getting to work with it a bit now. I've grown quite attached to it!

Looking at those makes me not so intimated by creating my own deck. I figured I wasn't a master artist, so I couldn't make a deck.

I love them. Thanks for sharing.

Striking cards! In this picture, http://www.tarotforum.net/attachment...2&d=1445987240 their homogeneity shines through. The idea of using almost entirely white on black, with very rare bits of colour, is original and gives a real clarity to the deck.

I am amazed by the amount of both mystery and meaning you have given the cards in just a few careful lines. You have a real talent!

If you do another similar one, the only ones I would change would be 8 Strength and possibly 3 The Empress. I thought they were out of character to the rest. But I may be missing something, that happens often!
