The legend of King Arthur and Camelot has become so popular over the ages that its archetypal characters and stories interact with the conscious and subconscious on the deepest levels. The Tarot, a powerful spiritual and divinatory tool, also works with the subconscious and conscious minds. It was only natural that the two should be combined. That is exactly what Anna-Marie Ferguson has done with her beautiful deck, Legend: The Arthurian Tarot.

The cards are meticulously painted in beautiful watercolor and framed by Celtic knotwork with jewels. The deck follows the traditional Tarot structure of 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. The traditional Tarot card name, such as the Seven of Swords, appears at the top of the card, while the Arthurian scene depicted (in this case the Sword in the Stone) appears at the bottom. The beauty of these designs will thrill you with their depth and add new layers of meaning and interpretation to your Tarot readings.

Included is a 72-page booklet which describes the mythic image on each card along with the divinatory meanings. The Horned One (formerly The Devil) is here named Cernunnos. You will learn who this deity is and his history. The Universe becomes The Giant's Dance, which relates to the mythic construction of Stonehenge. The Three of Swords is Palomides, the Saracen Knight who laments for his lost love, Isolt. The Nine of Cups is the Healing of the Maimed King, which describes how the Wasteland is renewed with the healing of its King on the sacred isle of Avalon. The booklet also includes instructions for two spreads.

If you work with the Tarot, you will find that the myths illustrated on these cards will allow you to glean new interpretations and ideas from the cards. If you collect Tarot decks, the beauty and meaning of this deck will make you want to add this deck to your collection. If you love the Arthurian myths, you will want this deck for its beautiful depictions of the events in the Arthurian legends. And if you want to learn the legends of Camelot, these cards can even function as "flash cards," allowing you to easily learn and recall the adventures of the Arthurian knights. Let this deck, with its exquisitely rendered water color paintings, draw you into a compelling world of characters, places, and tales from all four branches of the ancient Arthurian legend.

From the Publisher:

Myths and legends are more than mere stories. They inspire us on the deepest levels. That is why the best ones have survived hundreds and even thousands of years. They are tales of bravery and cowardice, love and hate, the material and the spiritual. Myths and legends often form the codes by which we live.

One of the most enduring Western myths is that of King Arthur and Camelot. You're probably familiar with some of the legend. But the stories of Arthur run deep and cover centuries of change and development, from Medieval tales of chivalry to Victorian poets' interpretations. Now you can learn about the many forms of this legend with Anna-Marie Ferguson's spectacular deck, Legend: The Arthurian Tarot.

The exquisite watercolor pictures on each of the cards bring the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to life. Each card illustrates a character or part of the legends of the Arthurian myths. That makes Legend: The Arthurian Tarot one of the most practical and useful Tarot decks ever.

There are several ways to use this deck. You can use this as a Tarot deck. It includes the standard Major and Minor Arcana cards and a 72-page booklet which gives the divinatory meanings of all 78 cards, as well as two Tarot spreads, so you can start reading them right away.

You can also use the images on the cards to provide new and powerful insights into the meanings of each card. If you love the Arthurian myths, you will find that the cards appeal to you deeply and call to your spiritual nature. If you want to learn more about the Arthurian myths, you can use these cards help you learn these ancient stories. The included booklet describes the part of the legend depicted on each card.

This deck offers you so much that it may become your primary deck for both reading and meditation.

About the Author:

Anna-Marie Ferguson, a Scorpio, was born November 10, 1966, in the heart of the New Forest, Hampshire, England. When she was ten years old her family emigrated to rural Alberta, Canada. Anna returned to England in 1982 to undergo training in graphic design. She eventually returned to Alberta, where she continued a career in design, devoting her spare time to developing her illustrating skills, ably assisted by her three cats.

Anna's fascination with Celtic legends and the Tarot began when she was a child in England. The atmosphere of the New Forest was steeped in history, and faithful readings of the legends cultivated an appreciation of "the romantic" in Anna. Such formative influences have inspired Anna to keep this bygone age alive through her art.
