Book of Kaos Tarot review by Solandia

The Book of Kaos Tarot is a self-published 80-card Tarot created by Australian artist Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule. The deck was first released in 1991 as the Bohemian Tarot, but for this edition almost half of the major arcana have been updated to form the deck into an “inter-sect-ion of Chaos Magick and the double aeonic current of Horus and Maat”.

The suits are Staves, Cups, Swords and Pentacles, while the court cards are Page, Knight, Queen and King. There are actually 24 major arcana cards, as there are two differing Lovers cards, and two Devil cards, one with Pan and one with Baphomet. Some titles of the Majors have been altered to a more Thoth-like titling:

0 – The Fool
I – The Magician
II – The High Priestess
III – Empress
IV – Emperor
V – H
