Margarete Petersen Tarot - Special 20th Anniversary Edition

Each card in this exquisite deck is a complex work of art brimming with spiritual significance. The Major Arcana symbolize transpersonal experiences, with card meanings presented in poetry. The Court Cards represent family relationships and the "social web" of life. Coins, cups, flames, and feathers explore the energy and action of daily life. The four suits are correlated with the four elements: Cups/water, coins/earth, flames/fire, and feathers/air.

In her own ingenious way Margarete Petersen has created and lived the Tarot cards since 1979. The Berlin based artist succeeded in creating archetypical motifs, although or perhaps because she has often broken with traditional imagery. Various forms of contemporary art and spirituality as well as the traditional structure contributed to the paintings.

Stunning and deep

You can feel the years of devotion the artist dedicated to this work! Hands down, the most moving and visually entrancing deck I have encountered. This is definitely a deck for contemplation that speaks to the depths of the human and spiritual experience, including a guidebook of poetic entries for each card. As a whole, it truly is a living body of art through both imagery and words!
