Originality and uniqueness
I pre-ordered The Wizards Tarot back in December 2010 with great anticipation, this deck does not disappoint. The Wizard Tarot is the intellectual creation of respected tarot author Corrine Kenner and is manifested by artist John J. Blumen.
The Wizard Tarot is a magic themed tarot deck where witchcraft and wizardry is the focus of the deck. Set in the mythical world of Mandrake Academy a magical school where you are a new student learning the ways of magic. Each of the Major Arcana cards is your new professors, teaching each their own magic subject. The Minor Arcana are fellow students. Each of the four suits represents four schools of magic. Which are, fire magic, water magic, air magic and earth magic. The Court cards are renamed as the Royal Families. Each Royal Family depicts elemental creatures associated with the suit.
The design of the deck is great, the backs have this nice golden like swirls, lines and stars that is unique. My only problem is they are not reversible so if you use reversals you will know which cards are reversed. The pattern on the back carries over into the boards around the card images which is really nice and ties the whole deck in nicely. The titles are spelled out in a clear font that is not overpowering or distracting. They are written on golden banners at the bottom. All cards are spelled out and are not numbered. Reordering the deck might be a hassle if you have a forgetful memory and forget the order of the Majors.Read more ›
Set in the Harry Potteresque world of Mandrake Academy, the Wizard's Tarot is all about magick. Blumen's skilled illustrations create a unique world of scholarship, mysticism and fantasy. Although the images are based on RWS symbolism, nearly all of the 78 cards incorporate some new element to freshen up the traditional imagery, while still maintaining the familiarity of tarot's master deck. Many of the cards go even further, presenting a new and unexpected approach to traditional symbolism.
Corrine Kenner, one of the tarot world's most popular authorities, has created a book packed with information and tools for unraveling the mysteries of the tarot and uncovering the magic within. In addition to delivering each card's meaning, the book also reveals the magical application of each of the major arcana and fully illustrated pip cards, with each of the court cards introducing us to characters from the fantasy world that contains Mandrake Academy. As an added bonus, each of the major arcana cards comes with its own unique spread to help you further absorb the meaning and intent of these major life lessons.
As a tarot collector, I have many decks I look at once and then relegate to "collection status" (meaning I may never look at them again).Read more ›
In the accompanying Handbook (companion book) the very first line of the introduction takes the Seeker directly into the world of the "Wizards Tarot". How does it do this? By introducing us to the Mandrake Acadamy, Here the Seeker is the student, and the Tarot is the teacher. Modern professors inhabit the rolling plains of the academy, bringing the ancient arts of witchcraft and wizardry to a new generation of students.
The professors take the form of the Major Arcana cards, leading their students through a series of twenty-one lessons in basic magic. In the Minro Arcana the student meets other students, young magicians honing their craft. The four suits illustrate the four schools of magic - Fire, Water, Air and Earth.
I love the concept of an animal familiar, and everyone at the Mandrake Academy (student and teacher) has one. In the Court cards the student will find the elemental beings that guard the school: Salamanders (Fire), Undines (Water), Sylphs (Air) and Gnomes (Earth). Kenner notes that the student needs to remember to be respectful, as the elemental creatures are unpredictable.Read more ›
