Golden Wirth Tarot review by medusawink
Oswald Wirth (1860-1943) was a Swiss occultist as well as artist and author. He was a student of Stanislas de Guaita - a noted French expert on mysticism and esotericism. Under the guidance of de Guaita, Wirth created the Wirth or Wirth-Guaita Tarot and published it in 1889. It is a Major Arcana only, consisting of 22 cards, heavily based on the Tarot de Marseilles. Harnessing his interest in Freemasonry and astrology, Wirth added new symbolism and depth to the Marseilles tarot and in the process moved it firmly into the realms of esoteric and occult knowledge (rather than being a fortune-telling novelty). Another way that Wirth revolutionised the tarot was to emphasise the mystical symbolism of numbers - the number of objects, such as flowers, coins etc. appearing in any given image ... read more reviews or write a review.
