Overview

Now you can understand the most complete, unique, and unusual divinatory deck ever, one that taps into the spirituality of the ancient Yoruba people of Africa, when you get The Tarot of the Orishas by Zolrak with art by Durkon.

The Tarot of the Orishas is the book that explains the first authentic Tarot deck of Yoruba origins to employ the powerful energies of Brazilian Candomble, a religion that originated with the Yoruba people of western Africa. This book acts as a transformative aid that will open the door to the meaning and origin of each card of this new deck. Completely bilingual, The Tarot of the Orishascan be enjoyed in English or in Spanish. It uses a unique Tarot deck design with 77 cards, including:

  • Thirteen cards showing the supernatural beings, or "Orishas," which represent archetypes of sacred, intense energy
  • Twelve cards with meaningful symbols such as Karma, the Earth, and the Custodian Angel
  • Fifty-two cards divided into four groups representing the four elements

The rich and compelling Tarot symbols, which are fully illustrated in this book, incorporate the imagery of Candomble, numerology, astrology, and other aspects of metaphysics. They portray archetypes through which spiritual forces can be brought to bear on mundane concerns. The cards described in The Tarot of the Orishas, created by an initiate and high priest of Candomble, can be used for divination, magic, or meditation. To that purpose, this book describes four different ways that you can "throw the cards." You will learn to use them to divine answers to your questions and to gain powerful lessons for your day-to-day life. The information here goes beyond the material world. It gets to the essence of all things: the spirit.

Considered by many to be a far more potent tool for magic and divination than the traditional Tarot, The Tarot of the Orishas will bring your own inner mysteries to light through images and stories that become richer over time. Get The Tarot of the Orishas today.

Read an Excerpt

The Tarot of the Orishas by Zolrak with art by Durkon describes a unique Tarot deck. In form, it is similar to the traditional Tarot that has played a part in Western Spiritual systems for hundreds of years and is used for magic, divination, astral projection, and more. In spirit, it represents the blend of the magical thought of ancient Africa with Catholicism that resulted in the religions of Candomble and Santeria.

In this new design—there are 77 cards in all—you will find 13 cards, one for each of the deity Orishas. Each corresponds to specific natural forces and human qualities that are often blended with Catholic saints. For example, in this book you will learn that the warrior god Ogun is the destroyer of evil. He is identified with St. George who symbolizes the human struggle for perfection. Oshun, goddess of rivers, symbolizes love, marriage, and the sweetness of life.

The Tarot of the Orishas describes how the undiluted energy of the Orishas combines with many other archetypal symbols in the deck to help you access a spiritual realm that only symbols are able to describe. The Tarot of the Orishas is bilingual, so everything is covered in both English and Spanish. Get your copy of The Tarot of the Orishas soon.
