A Tarot for a New Age

Ravynne Phelan

The philosophy of the DREAMS OF GAIA TAROT is simple: to seek, to feel, to grow, to heal. This deck will strengthen your connection to your divine self, whilst helping you to identify and heal past experiences that hold you back from living to your fullest potential. Learn to recognise when times of growth and change are approaching and face them with confidence and a sense of anticipation. Learn when to take action and when to be still. Learn to trust in your intuition. 

 By offering structure in the form of a major and minor arcana like that of past tarots, but combining them with bold new archetypes, symbology and meanings more suited to the present, the DREAMS OF GAIA TAROT allows for a more personal, intimate and effective system for using cards as a roadmap to navigate your life path. Embark on this extraordinary journey of undoing, of being and becoming and be inspired by the knowledge that all that manifests in your future is born of choices you make today. 

 How does DREAMS OF GAIA TAROT differ from a traditional tarot deck? 
The deck features 81 full col cards, compared to the 78 cards in a traditional tarot. 
This 'tarot for a new era' is loosely based on tarot structure – there is still, for example, a major and a minor arcana, but the major arcana in this deck contains 25 cards, instead of the 22-card major arcana of traditional decks and this new deck does not use the traditional tarot symbology. 
The major arcana does not contain the traditional archetypes of the classic tarot. (see more information below)

This deck contains 81 full colour cards & a 308 page guidebook

The major arcana of this deck contains four sub-sections: 
1 – Card Zero: One card only, called The Choice Card. 

2 – Cards 2-8: Stages of Life These are archetypes that we all are in some way, whether we are male, female or gender-neutral. They are aspects of our nature that we possess or have moved through or are influenced by. 1. Child, 2. Maiden, 3. Youth, 4. Mother, 5. Father, 6. Crone, 7. Sage, 8. Death/Rebirth 

3 – Cards 9-16: Reasons for Being These cards relate to why we are here and what we are here to achieve – whether it be just the individual or humanity as a whole. 9. Knowledge, 10. Wisdom, 11. Healing, 12. Love, 13. Union, 14. Self, 15. Abundance, 16. Destiny 

4 – Cards 17-24: Influence These cards represent different aspects that have a major impact on our ability to make choices and act upon them. 17.Journey, 18.Thought, 19.Emotions, 20.Desire, 21.Perception, 22.Intuition, 23.Faith, 24.Integrity 

The cards of the DREAMS OF GAIA TAROT major arcana are all aspects of every single one of us or which influence us in some way. This makes the reading of the deck far more personal and relevant to each individual reader. 

The Dreams of Gaia Tarot has a 56-card minor arcana – the same number as traditional tarots, but the suits are named after the elements: 

Earth – representing the spheres of Home/Family/Career 

Air – representing the spheres of Thought/Belief/Intellect 

Fire – representing the spheres of Action/Manifestation/Being 

Water – representing the spheres of Emotions/Relationships/Intuition 

The four traditional Knights of the classic tarot have been replaced with four individual 'advisors' to the King and Queen. They are the Seneschal (Earth), The Scribe (Air), The Hero (Fire) and The Counsellor (Water). The Pages, traditionally the number 11 card, have been replaced with a 'balancing/realignment' card. The deck is designed to be a 'tarot for a new era' – it's a kind of overhauling of the entire traditional tarot system that is more applicable to the modern age, and more relateable to the individual.

The new classic English tarot.


Draws explicitly on the English magical tradition

Created by Rex Van Ryn , Steve Dooley and Andy Letcher

This captivating new tarot deck draws us into the vibrant but, often, hidden world of English magic, evoking a golden age of mysticism when the likes of John Dee was Queen Elizabeth's Court Astrologer, antiquarian, John Aubrey, began to rediscover ancient sacred sites and even the great physicist Isaac Newton studied alchemy. During this time of upheaval, archetypal forces were very much at play. The monarchs and mountebanks, visionaries and fools, knights and vagabonds that shaped the world are all there in the tarot too, making this a perfect setting for the cards..

· Dynamic, graphic-novel style design 
· Each card has a secret code 
· This complete tarot set includes a 160 page book and 78 full colour cards.

Available from deep books £19.99 inc VAT

*“Free gift”, is your own copy of a video interview with the English Magic Tarot’s” creator, Rex Van Ryn, in which he shares the history and Genesis behind this unique deck.

Steve Dooley has worked extensively in Britain and Europe painting murals and trompe-l’oeil frescoes. He has recently co-produced the Wind in the Willows app for the iPad.  

Andy Letcher is the author of Shroom: A Cultural History of the Magic Mushroom (Faber & Faber 2006 UK, Harper 2008 US) and numerous scholarly articles on paganism, shamanism and folklore.  He has been a practising Druid for twenty years and gave his first tarot reading aged eleven.

INTRODUCTION From the Reformation to the Restoration
A brief overview of this colourful period of English history.

An introduction to English magic. The foundations laid down by pre-Christian peoples. Hermes Trismegistus and Renaissance magic.  Alchemy and Sir Isaac Newton. High and low magic. The Hall of Magicians.

PART TWO: THE ENDLESS STORY Working with the cards
In keeping with the graphic style of the deck, users are encouraged to think less that the cards have a set of fixed meanings to be learned by rote and more that they provide a dynamic tool with which to tell stories. By treating each card as the frame of a graphic novel, readers can learn to let the cards ‘speak’. They can find their own stories in the cards and so ‘re-imagine’ their lives.
Exercises and suggested spreads are provided to guide readers through this unique approach – one that aims to let people take their place in the endless story of the tarot.

PART THREE: SIGNPOSTS ON THE WAY Pointers to the cards
Rather than providing a list of fixed meanings, each card is presented with a commentary and a set of questions that readers can use to deepen their appreciation. The Wands, Swords, Cups and Coins of the Minor Arcana are color-coded red, tan, blue and
green and are represented by Tudors, Cavaliers, Roundheads and people from Restoration England respectively. The court cards are divided into Page, Knight, Queen and King. The Major Arcana cards present a kind of parallel dreamworld of English magic. Broadly, the cards follow a similar structure to Pamela Colman Smith’s classic ‘Rider-Waite’ deck, though with some surprising twists to the imagery. 

While for the most part they show archetypal images, readers may spot actual historical characters (though no specialist historical knowledge is required). So, the Emperor depicts an aged Henry VIII; the Magician, John Dee and the Star, Sir Isaac Newton. Magical references, lore and riddles run through all the cards, deliberately buried there to encourage readers to look ever more closely into the images and discover increasingly rich layers of meaning.

PART FOUR: THE MEMORY PALACE Building a deeper relationship with the cards
The memory palace is technique for improving memory that derives from classical times. It was used extensively in English magic, and instructions are given here for building a memory palace to help unlock the deeper mysteries of the cards.
