Taro Adivinhatorio Reviews
The first Brazilian-published Golden Dawn type tarot deck. The Taro Adivinhatorio cards are quite plainly drawn, having a large expanse of white border with different types of magical symbols in the margins. Cards are individually numbered and all titles are in the Portuguese language.
Tarot Deck - 78 Cards - Editora Pensamento
Review by Renato de Mattos Motta
The Taro Adivinhatorio was my first Taro, and it was the very first Taro deck published in Brazil. It was drawn by artists of Editora O Pensamento, wich is an enterprise founded by members of the Círculo Esotérico da Comunhão do Pensamento (Esoteric Circle of Communion of Thinking), after fusioned with Editora Cultrix.
This is not an original Tarot deck. It's a copy of Papus-Goulinat tarot deck from 1889. And the book that comes with it is also a compilation of Papus, Eliphas Lévy, Etteilla and many other classical authors.
small size (9 x 6 cm) is very practical when you don't
have many space to play. It has also the esoteric
meanings of the cards. I really enjoy this deck, it's an easy begginer's
deck, with the main meanings written on the cards.
