Sneak peek: Inner Journey Tarot
News , Sneak peek , Tarot / 12 April 2016

YouTube Tarot sensation and reader Angelo Nasios and fantasy artist Jon Carraher started working on a tarot deck a year ago. The Inner Journey Tarot, as they call the deck, was birthed during a class at a Tarot School somewhere in the US and the first card was made public today. The Inner Journey Tarot is the first ever tarot deck to take you *inside* the tarot. By using the deck you can experience each card from the first person point of view. So you will see how that ravine is looking from the Fool’s eyes or to whom or what the Queen of Sword is holding her hand out. First card revealed The dreaded XVI The Tower is the first of many cards being showed. Experience the fall first-hand on this card. Ah, and from the looks of it the deck is inspired by Waite-Smith, it has a slim black border and no title. Just numerals. Interested in more? I am!

The idea behind the tarot deck is that you’ll strengthen the connection to your divine self all the while helping you to heal past experiences that hold you back in the present. By using Dreams of Gaia you will be able to live to your fullest potential. Different archetypes The Dreams of Gaia Tarot has both a major and minor arcana, but in a way tarot readers can’t envision until they have the deck in their hands. It is divided into life phases, influences and reasons for being. So don’t expect The Chariot, The Tower or Hanged Man for example. This del comes with new archetypes, symbology and meanings that the artist thinks is more suited to the present. That statement…
