aces, elements, and court cards.
The Cosmo Astrotaro is a 56 card deck for readings It combines tarot and
astrology, but in a way that is more logical, complete and clear than
the traditional tarot. A direct feeling of the energies the cards
represent comes through the paintings. You can use it even if you know
only a little astrology, and it will help you learn. It is a very
colorful and visual deck.
This deck at first looks quite
different than the usual 78 card tarot, but all of the basic parts of
tarot structure are there. There is a major arcana, in it each card has
the tarot meaning and also been assigned a planet or house. The court
cards ( king queen and page equivalent) are the 12 sign cards, and are
personality types. The 4 knights represent the 4 elements, fire earth
air and water. The 4 aces are included, they also are representations of
the four elements. There are 12 aspect cards (conjunction, opposition,
trine square, etc.). In terms of structure of the deck they parallel the
1 to 10 numbered suit cards of the regular tarot minor arcana, but
instead of four suits, there is only one series. The meanings, however,
are unique to the deck and based on the energy of the aspects. this deck
also has a personal side, and you are free to develop you own personal
take on the cards, based on your own experience and knowledge. they work
exceptionally well in conjunction with the person's chart. or even just
the ephemeris as a reference for transits and natal patterns. It is
amazing how the cards will time and again point to something that you
overlooked about what is going on for the person. Astrology can be a
load of details, and this deck will sort that out for you, showing what
needs to get attention in the reading.
Carol first made this deck for
herself to have a deck that would work for readings like tarot, but was
more complete and clear in relation to astrology. All of the parts of
astrology are there: signs, planets, elements, aspects and houses. The
deck can be used by itself, along with an ephemeris to get the persons
planets and transits, or to supplement a full astrological reading using
the birth chart. This deck that lends itself to creating your own style
with it, personal associations and knowledge are linked to the cards as
time goes by, as you use it more. Carol has been reading with it herself
since 1985, and has her own take on certain cards, other people who use
it have theirs. It works wonderfully well as a psychic tool, and as a
way of sorting through the vastness of astrological information, the
cards tell you what to focus on.
All decks include handmade pouch and a small instruction booklet.
Cards are clear laminated both sides, and
very easy to shuffle, are durable and water resistant.
