The Amazing, Century-Spanning Tarot

The Llewellyn Tarot is a stunning achievement that has already drawn universal acclaim for its depth and beauty. Its watercolor imagery invites you into a mystic world of ancient forests, sensuous seascapes and wondrous waterfalls brimming with mystery, meaning and magic. This lavishly illustrated deck is based on the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck, making readings easy. It also reveals a compelling Celtic story featuring Rhiannon as The Empress, Bran the Blessed as The Emperor, The Wild Herdsman as The Devil, Gwydion as The Magician, Llew Llaw Gyffes as the Bringer of Light and other figures from Welsh mythology.

This deck—created by famed artist Anna-Marie Ferguson—reveals Welsh myths and honors Llewellyn George, who traveled from Wales to the U.S. in 1901 to teach astrology and start Llewellyn Publications. The deck comes with a full-size book that explains the myths associated with the image on each card as well as their divinatory meanings. It also includes two original spreads.

The Llewellyn Tarot brings life to the ancient myths while keeping to a structure that makes it ideal for giving readings. It honors the wisdom and spirit of two great personalities, one who strived in myth, and another who strode to open astrology in a new land. Inspiring and practical, this is the deck you will use every day and on special occasions. Whether this is going to be your first deck or your hundredth deck, it is the deck you must have.

 

Over a century ago, a young Welsh boy journeyed to America, where he started a small press now known as Llewellyn Publications. Llewellyn George’s adventurous spirit, Welsh heritage, and enduring legacy is embodied in this deck. From the creator of the popular Legend: The Arthurian Tarot Kit, the lavishly illustrated cards offer universal appeal (based on Rider-Waite) with a Welsh twist. Also included is The Llewellyn Tarot Companion, which introduces the craft and history of Tarot and the Welsh legends infused in the deck.
