Now you can understand the most complete, unique, and unusual divinatory deck ever, one that taps into the spirituality of the ancient Yoruba people of Africa, when you get The Tarot of the Orishas by Zolrak with art by Durkon.
The Tarot of the Orishas is the book that explains the first authentic Tarot deck of Yoruba origins to employ the powerful energies of Santería, Brazilian Candomblé, and Umbanda. This book acts as a transformative aid that will open the door to the meaning and origin of each card of this new deck. Completely bilingual, The Tarot of the Orishas can be enjoyed in English or in Spanish. It uses a unique Tarot deck design with 77 cards, including:
- Thirteen cards showing the supernatural beings, or "Orishas," which represent archetypes of sacred, intense energy
- Twelve cards with meaningful symbols such as Karma, the Earth, and the Custodian Angel
- Fifty-two cards divided into four groups representing the four elements
The rich and compelling Tarot symbols, which are fully illustrated in this book, incorporate the imagery of Santería, Candomblé, Umbanda, numerology, astrology, and other aspects of metaphysics. They portray archetypes through which spiritual forces can be brought to bear on mundane concerns. The cards described in The Tarot of the Orishas can be used for divination, magic, or meditation. To that purpose, this book describes four different ways that you can "throw the cards." You will learn to use them to divine answers to your questions and to gain powerful lessons for your day-to-day life. The information here goes beyond the material world. It gets to the essence of all things: the spirit.
