I have this cool idea about connecting Tarot to the cosmos.
The Sun, Moon, Star cards are in the deck for a reason; we humans are fascinated with the heavens. I’m fascinated both with the mythological symbolism and the physics displayed above our little planet, so I thought I’d build a deck and book around my philosophy of the universe.
I went looking for pictures I could use that were already available and found that good old NASA had plenty of resources. Some really amazing resources.
I have my own story about the universe and how Tarot works within it, and my own vision of how to use these cosmic images. My idea was to stay as true to the original images as possible, although I did add bits of imagery in collage fashion to a handful of the Minor Arcana to make the connection to the Tarot image of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck clearer.
A peek at some of the imagery. You can also see more at the gallery over at Cosmic Whispers Tarot if you haven’t looked already.
The 200-page companion book, with my Tarot story; my philosophy about Tarot and physics; card descriptions with keywords, interpretation guidance and poems for each of the Major Arcana cards. You can get either a full-color PDF or high-quality black & white printed version.
Since this deck is a bit of a Rorschach test for your brain, the book is an essential guide to my Tarot universe. 🙂
My Tarot colleague, Ania Marczyk, has been kind enough to create a Cosmic Whispers Tarot bag to go with this deck and any others I create. Great galaxy design and quality materials, along with outstanding workmanship.
I’ll be creating more cool stuff at my Cosmic Whispers Tarot HQ. Check out my entire Tarot world when you have a chance!
