"Celestial Tarot fuses the myths, symbols and astronomy of the planets, signs, constellations, and fixed stars with astrological divination to reveal the mysteries of Tarot in an engaging and unique way".
If you are a Rider-Waite follower and are interested in developing your understanding through the Tarots connection to astrology, then this deck is for you. Of course if you have a deep love for the stars and constellation then this deck is a great choice!
Each card has its traditional name accompanied by its astrological title on the top. For example, 'The Chariot' is associated with the sign of Cancer the crab, and shows a crab, the zodiac symbol of the crab, the chariot and his horse, the water symbol (because Cancer is a water sign) and various other symbols include the associated Hebrew letter. 'The Chariot' also features the Greek Goddess Hera, the Hero's (the Charioteer's) greatest adversary in Greek mythology and the LWB explains why. Some minor arcana cards are related to star constellations which fit in nicely with the traditional Rider-Waite meaning and symbolism.
The artwork is softly drawn with a night sky colour theme and feels friendly and soothing to look at. This deck has much lot to offer is you are looking to expand your knowledge of the Tarot further and will lead you on an exciting journey into astrology, the Tree of Life and our wondrous night sky!
If you are a complete beginner and want to learn traditional Tarot, it might be better to become familiar with the Rider-Waite deck first. Other than that this deck has a lot to offer the Tarot student and professional reader.
The cards are a good size and well laminated, and are accompanied by a LWB which explains the symbolism and meaning of each card.
