Pack: The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot (Collection) "Last Units"
It consists of a pack of 79 letters plus a book with instructions in English language.
The first tarot to celebrate an African-American culture, this book and the deck of 79 cards capture both the spirit and the images of African, Antillean and Catholic voodoo influences.
Ancient and respectful of the land, voodoo practices take different specific forms of time and place, but their essence remains focused on the loa: the powerful spiritual forces of voodoo that manifest directly through human beings and their actions.
The authors draw strong parallels between the Tarot of Waite and Thoth, the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and the Voodoo tradition as practiced in New Orleans. Just as the major and minor arcana of the Tarot represent the archetypes of the human psyche and the natural forces of our world, so do voodoo voodoo embody the primordial energies of the universe.
With a variety of differentials and readings, the authors show how the Tarot can be a channel of ideas through which the loa exercise their powers to teach, advise and initiate the serious student in their mysteries.
The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot is suitable for those who practice or are interested in the four cults of Voodoo, Santeria, Petro, Congo and Rada. The main arcana have historical voodoo characters.
