Overview
 
Ancient Minoans meet modern Tarot in this unique, vibrant 86-card deck and guidebook that call on archetypes of Tarot through iconography of a civilization that flourished two millennia before the advent of Christianity. Using the Minoan palette from the ruins of the temple complexes and cities, the artwork was created entirely by hand, inspired by beautiful works of art from ancient Crete. Connect with the mysterious snake priestesses, labyrinthine temple complexes, and courageous bull-leapers.

Explore gender-balanced face cards reflecting the egalitarian nature of Minoan society that makes this deck especially relevant for modern users: Priest and Priestess, Lord and Lady, Youth and Maid. Each card displays symbols from an ancient writing system and keywords reflecting literal image concepts or pointing to deeper meanings. This deck and comprehensive guidebook can also be used for meditation and personal growth. Experienced or new readers will find The Minoan Tarot a natural tool.
Details
    • Many Tarot decks come with a tiny booklet that offers snippets of meaning about each card and maybe a layout or two. The Minoan Tarot, in contrast, comes with a full-size, full-length book (176 pages) in beautiful glossy color that describes the artwork and the meaning of each card in depth. It also includes detailed instructions for several layouts (including one designed just for this deck) as well as a Minoan Fool's Journey, Elemental Journeys, and background information about Minoan culture and art.
    • The artwork on each card also includes a word or two in Linear B, the script used by the Minoans and the Mycenaeans to write a very early form of Greek towards the end of Minoan civilization. The definition of the Linear B symbols on each card pertains to the meaning of the card and adds depth to its sense in readings.
