The Sacred Circle Tarot

 

 

The Sacred Circle Tarot is a new concept in tarot design, combining photographs, computer imaging and traditional drawing techniques to create stunning images. It draws on the Pagan heritage of Britain and Ireland, its sacred sites and landscapes. Key symbols unlock the deepest levels of Pagan teaching. The imagery of the cards is designed to work on a number of levels, serving as a tool not only for divination but to facilitate meditation, personal growth and spiritual development.

The Major Arcana

The Major Arcan consists of the normal twenty-two cards, though in some cases the titles and sequences have been altered to fit more closely with the theme of the deck.

We begin with The Green Man as primal energy.

And go on to pair the High Priestess and the High Priest – rather than the Magician and the High Priestess – as encounters with the male and female sides of the self. We then encounter the Godess and the God within nature, as The Lady and The Lord.

The card normally called the Hierophant or Pope is called The Druid, the chief priest of the Celts.

Then follow the lessons of life in the cards of The Lovers, The Chariot, The Warrior (Strength), and the turning toward the lessons of the spirit of The Shaman (The Hermit).

Next comes the awareness of the turning of The Wheel and the awareness that everything that moves within the Wheel is connected by The Web (Justice) and that actions have consequences. With this profound realization comes the decent into initiation; first one must be willing to sacrifice the ego and little Self (Sacrifice/The Hanged Man), The old self then dies (Death) and passes to the Underworld (The Devil), where the spirit is tested and refined.

The final dissolution of the old Self is completed with the Tower, where the man-made structure of deceptive self-image and barriers is finally destroyed, allowing to go forward to Initiation (Temprance).

Then follows the emergence from initiation in the conventional order of The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Rebirth (Judgement), and The World Tree (The World).
