Brain Heart Tarot deck

a tarot deck created by Dirk Gillabel and painted by Carol Herzer

Brain-Heart Tarot 0  Brain-Heart Tarot 9  Brain-Heart Tarot 18 



Carol painted this deck in the early 1990's when she and Dirk were still living in different countries, but corresponding with frequent letters about life, tarot, art, and esoteric subjects. For Carol the painting of this deck was a magical inner journey, complete with psychic dreams and inner experiences.

The Brain-Heart Tarot, as presented here, is a new edition of my earlier black and white deck. It has been beautifully painted by Carol Herzer. This major arcana has only twenty cards, as at the time I considered the the three last cards, 19, 20, and 21 as different aspects of the same archetype.
I started out with a scientific approach. I saw several relationships between science, numbers, and the archetypes of the major arcana. However when I reached card nine, the energies in me totally reversed to an inspirational approach. Thus the first ten cards (0 to 9) are intellectual, from the brain, and the following ten cards (10 to 19) are inspirational, from the heart. Hence the name Brain-Heart Tarot. Thus it formed a polarity between these two opposite but complementary poles.
The booklet explains in detail every symbol on the cards.

If you want to order  deck, first send us an email to confirm availably and shipping cost, for that we need your zip code (USA) or country location.

PayPal is required for all orders outside the USA. we accept both PayPal and checks for USA orders.  You can not order directly from our site. For all PayPal payments we will send you an invoice after the order is confirmed by personal emails.

We always combine shipping on multiple item orders if possible. Shipping in the USA is by priority mail with insurance. whenever possible I use flat rate shipping boxes, for a deck or two usually it comes to around 9 to 12 dollars depending on the insurance amount. Due to policies of Paypal for packages sent outside the USA, all must have insurance and tracking and the only way to get that is by Express Mail. It is expensive, I use flat rate if possible which is currently $46.50, unless they changed it again, so please inquire about that. You do get reliable and fast service with that option.
