 5. The Initiate,

  9. The Guide,

12. the Unconscious

15. Illusion,

20. Awakening,

Also, Justice is 8 and Strength is 11, Waite changed them to fit his view of astrology, but in tarot decks before him they were as I have them, look at the Oswald Wirth tarot deck, for instance.)

These are individually made handmade decks. Durable, water resistant clear smooth lamination on both sides, rounded corners, slight variation in the cut, not like a machine cut deck.


The original version is amazing as a meditative black and white deck that allows your mind to relax and go deep into the essence of the images.  Sizes and prices are the same as the color decks. Click on each image below to see a larger picture.

I received the pouch yesterday & the cards today...they are gorgeous!!
Each card is like a piece of art!! I almost want to display them in a frame!!
I love the blending of the colors, and how they change with the light...also the smaller sparkles look perfect! They just add extra depth to the layering of color!!
I could not have asked for a more beautiful set of cards made just for me!! And they arrived on my birthday!! Oh the pouch is perfect as well!
