Details of the Celestial Tarot
Solandia's Summary: The Celestial Tarot is from the author of the Spiral Tarot, Kay Steventon. The pretty, non-traditional images directly associate astrology, the planets, and the constellations with the 78 Tarot cards. Twenty-two majors are zodiacal constellations and
ten planets (Pluto is counted as a planet) of
astrology. Each minor suit is associated with an astrological
element of fire, earth, air and water. The system includes
Golden Dawn decanates, astrology, astronomy, myth and
symbolism. Now available with a companion book as well as a standalone deck.
