Riassunto: Now you can add the incredible energies found in the vibrant spiritual systems of Santeria and Candomble when you use The Tarot of the Orishas by Zolrak. This amazing divinatory deck will allow you to tap into these ancient spiritual powers.
The deck is brilliantly painted by Zolrak's associate, Durkon. There are 25 principal cards that are not numbered, because they have among them the 13 most venerated Orishas (supernatural beings) such as Ogun, Shango, and Yemaya, who are not influenced by numbers. The remaining 12 portray ideas or symbols such as Karma, the Earth, and the Guardian Angel.
The secondary cards are divided into five sections. The first four sections make up the four suits and run from ace to ten, with an added element card. The fifth section consists of eight cards, one for each of the elementals (Undines, Gnomes, Salamanders, and Sylphs), and one each for the message they offer.
Included with the deck are two 64-page instructional booklets, one in English, one in Spanish. The cards are also labeled in both languages, making The Tarot of the Orishas the first fully bilingual divinatory deck. The booklet explains how this deck came to be and compares it with a traditional Tarot deck. It also explains the meaning of each of the 77 cards in this deck. Finally, it gives six divinatory layouts, including some not published elsewhere, so you can use this deck immediately.
If you are interested in the ancient mystery and magic that comes to us from Africa, or want a new divinatory deck that will spark your creativity in new ways, get The Tarot of the Orishas.
Sinossi: Candomble is the living, spiritist religion that originated with the Yoruba people of west-central Africa and is similar to Santeria in its worship of the Orixas, or Orishas. Orishas are "saints" or supernatural beings, such as "Eleggua", "Xango" ("Chango") and "Yemanya" - archetypes of sacred, powerful and pure energy. This Tarot deck is based on numerology, astrology and other branches of metaphysics. 25 cards representing the Orishas can be compared with the major arcana of traditional Tarot. The remaining 52 cards (or "minor arcana") are divided into four groups of 13 cards each, representing the four elements. Representing the magical thinking of ancient Africa, the Tarot of the Orishas is considered by many to be more powerful for magic and divination than the traditional Tarot. It deals with the fundamental energies of live human beings and emphasizes the role of symbols.
