5.0 out of 5 stars A must have deck and book for the serious reader, 17 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sacred Circle Tarot: A Celtic Pagan Journey (Paperback)
I love this sumptuous photographic deck. I intend to use it in my own personal meditations over the next several months. I like to pick a card a day as a daily guidance tool, so a new deck typically takes about 2 1/2 months to absorb into the subconscious. The luscious imagery of The Sacred Circle Tarot promises to be very thought provoking indeed. The book that accompanies the deck reflects a wiccan/druidic magickal practice but retains the ancient association of swords with air, wands with fire. Many of the new decks that reflect the wiccan tradition reverse the elemental meaning of swords and wands. Being a traditionalist, and follower of a Scottish shamanic path, I prefer to use decks that keep the swords as air and wands as fire. The Sacred Circle Tarot uses layered photographic imagery, created by overlaying Mason's collaged photographic images with symbols chosen by Anna Franklin. This deck, begun over 15 years ago, could only be completed in the manner the duo envisioned when they discovered the computer program Adobe Photoshop. Unlike other photographically collaged tarot decks, The Sacred Circle layers several different images with illustrations (ie. dragons and other non-photographic creatures/symbols) in a single scene as if the real and astral appeared in the same moment for the photographer's lens. The effect of the layering is surreal, opening a psychic doorway for the user by drawing the eye into a rich scenic image. It is rare for both a deck and book to capture my heart, Sacred Circle does so and more.
