Spirit Tarot Card

The original and foremost purpose of Tarot is the facilitation of communication with other levels of consciousness. 

Superconsciousness and subconsciousness don’t speak English or German or Spanish, they speak the language of consciousness, which is pictorial and symbolic. 

Tarot is written or rather sketched in the pictorial-symbolic language of consciousness and that’s why it can facilitate the communication with the higher self, subconsciousness, higher states of mind, and other sentient beings.  

The Two Basic Types of Tarot Decks

Oversimplified, there are two types of Tarot decks: Tarot decks that express the imagination and artistic talent of their authors and traditional Tarot decks that are designed according to the language of consciousness. Examples of traditional decks are the Marseille and Rider-Waite Tarot decks. 

While the first type of Tarot decks are usually well-crafted, the designs of traditional decks leave us wanting.

What if there were a Tarot deck true to the language of consciousness but with immersive illustrations? 

This is where the Enlightenment Tarot comes in. See for yourself:

The Enlightenment Tarot

 

If you meditate on the Moon with closed eyes, your imagination will conjure an immersive experience. You will behold the moon, the green hills, and the yellow path in vivid detail. You will feel the grass under your feet and the wind on your face. You may stroke the wolf and dog, stand in the shadows of the towers, and climb the violet mountain of illumination.

Imagination is dream-like and lucid and immersive. Traditional Tarot decks are un-immersive. Until now, you needed to keep Tarot meditation and Tarot reading in two different departments. Not anymore. The illustrations of the Enlightenment Tarot live up to the quality of imagination. And dreams.

The Enlightenment Tarot is still in the making. It will be available toward the end of 2022. Subscribe if you want to take part in the journey of the Enlightenment Tarot:

Fresh Titles

Cosmic Intention

At first, we will make two versions of the Enlightenment Tarot available. 

The first deck will have traditional titles with a few exceptions. We replaced titles with religious connotations that can produce negative associations. For example, we renamed Justice to Karma and Devil to Adversity

The second deck comes with titles that reveal the basic psychological and divinatory meanings of the cards as well as the principle life experiences they represent. For example, the Magician became Self-consciousness

In both cases, we changed the traditional titles of the minor arcana to ease divination. Everybody knows the Aces of Wands is the Ace of Wands, but not everybody knows that it signifies cosmic intention. 

This means that during Tarot readings you won’t need to translate the (obvious) titles into meanings. Instead, the querent will grasp instantly the general meaning of a card and you can take him straight to the finesses of your interpretation. 

Last but not least, the new titles will make it easier for those who are not experienced Tarot readers to divine for themselves.

How to Use Tarot as a Psychological Tool

The titles of the second deck reflect states of consciousness and relatable experiences. Hence, you can use the Enlightenment Tarot as a psychological tool and a tool of self-discovery. 

Tarot cards show positive states of mind. By looking at Tarot cards, you allow them to re-arrange your mind and correct negative thoughts, emotions, and imaginings.

Tarot cards can even help those who suffer from mental challenges like depression and anxiety. 

Later, we will publish books on how to overcome depression, anxiety, and other psychological challenges with Tarot.

The Enlightenment Tarot and the Tree of Life

Tree of Life

The Enlightenment Tarot takes the position of the Tarot cards on the Tree of Life into account. 

Maybe you don’t know this: The major arcana illustrate the paths on the Tree of Life and the minor arcana the Sephiroth in the four qabalistic worlds. 

For that reason, we replaced most crowns with halos. The halos signify the Sephiroth from which the major arcana proceed. For example, the Emperor has a grey halo because its path originates in Chokmah. These associations unlock an additional dimension of meanings.
