Throughout history, the cards and stars have colluded to chart the fate of man. The distinctly modern Astronomer’s Tarot pairs cartomancy with 78 current and extinct constellations to breathe new life into the ancient Zodiac.
An Arca Noctis exclusive, the Astronomer’s Tarot looks to the night sky for inspiration. Each of the cards in the traditional Rider-Waite deck transforms into a perfectly aligned constellation. This serves well to guide attended to the Zodiac. A full-sized tarot, this deck is the perfect gift for those who seek guidance in the heavens above. Each Astronomer’s Tarot is professionally printed on FSC-certified, professional S30 card stock with blue core and smooth finish. The deck comes in a drawstring velvet bag for easy travel and safe storage.
Playing cards first migrated from Egypt and the Far East to Europe in the late 1300s. Decks intended specifically for divination appeared in various parts of Italy nearly 50 years later. These Tarot decks, from the Italian tarocchi, started with the four traditional suits but added a new twist — a series of cards with religious images. The new cards, called carte da trionfi or triumph cards, depicted allegorical scenes such as death, revelation and the sun. Over the next several hundred years, different decks were hand crafted around Europe, each featuring a different assortment of cards.
