Celestial Tarot Deck
About the Celestial Deck
Embedded in our night sky are archetypal images, symbols, and stories that have enchanted and inspired the human soul for aeons. Onto this sanctuary of the sky the ancients projected their imagination using the star-patterns to animate their myths and create the skyscape that shapes the imagery of Celestial Tarot. Underpinning the 78 cards of Celestial Tarot are the ancient traditions of Astrology, astronomy, and mythology. The Tarot is now projected onto the wide canvas of the heavens allowing the Astrology, mythology, and symbolism of the planets and constellations to inspire the cards. Celestial Tarot makes a
great impact as it not only amplifies and widens the meaning of the contemporary cards but also utilizes the oldest forms of divination.
The Celestial Tarot also has symmetry. The 22 cards of the Major Arcana are represented by the twelve zodiacal constellations and the ten planets of contemporary astrology with each minor suit representing one of the four astrological elements. In the Minor Arcana we encounter the extra-zodiacal constellations. Throughout these cards the zodiac is divided into decanates to add more insight and symbolism to each card. The Court Cards include the Princesses who each personify a season while the Prince, Queen, and King of each suit embody the mutable, fixed, and cardinal signs of each element.
Guided by Tarot tradition, the works of C.C. Zain and Raphael Binding, as well as her own creative impulses, Kay Steventon has created a Tarot deck for a new age—one
engaging the Tarot enthusiast with the ancient tradition of astral divination. Imagination is awoken through the visual images of astrological constellations and mythological symbols. For astrologers it is an exciting new way to engage with the constellations and planets.
