The Magical Tarot of the Golden Dawn comprises 78 fully illustrated tarot cards and is meant to be a companion to the book The Magical Tarot of the Golden Dawn: Divination, Meditation and High Magical Teachings. The uniqueness of this Golden Dawn/Stella Matutina tarot deck is its colouring, which is based on the four sets of Golden Dawn colour scales. A comparative study between the current Regardie /Wang deck and the classic Magical Tarot of the Golden Dawn deck shows a large difference in the colouring, especially in the minor arcana, where the Wang deck does not use the four colour scales.
The Golden Dawn is one of the most influential and respected systems of magic in the world. Inspired by the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn, this magical tarot captures the esoteric spirituality and mysticism of an ancient yet vibrant tradition. This stunning tarot offers a path—built on the tenets of high magic—that leads to transformation and enlightenment. Deluxe edition (4½ x 6 7/10) includes 78 full-color cards, instructions, and an embroidered satin bag Publisher Review #1: The concept of this deck is fascinating. A knowledgeable deck designer and historian, Giordano Berti, used primary source material to create instructions and direction for an artist who has not viewed other versions of Golden Dawn or Golden Dawn-tradition-based decks. This allows for an entirely fresh composition and depiction of these meanings, including illustrated pips. This deck moves away from numeric pips, expanding on the original design (just as Waite and Smith did) to create the first truly all-pictorial Golden Dawn deck What an exciting technique to create a deck that is based on a specific foundation but not derivative. Is this what the tarot world has been waiting for? Is this a step in evolution for tarot, a way to break out of the clone rut? Time and usage by readers will tell. . . . read more. Publisher Review #2: Before discussing the deck itself, I'd like to look at the LWB (Little White Booklet) that accompanies the deck. Because Lo Scarabeo sends decks all over the world, their LWBs are in multiple languages, resulting, unfortunately, in even less information than is found in decks from other publishers. This one, however, uses its limited space very effectively. It doesn't describe the symbolism on each card (you can look at the card), but does give the divinatory meaning based on the Golden Dawn system. The creative force behind the deck, Giordano Bertia, only gave basic information about the meanings of the cards to artist Patrizio Evangelisti, so on this basis, the deck is a Golden Dawn deck. The LWB also includes an original six-card spread called the "Method of the Rosacroce." It has a unique method of selecting the cards for the layout, but the meaning of the positions for the cards is fairly mundane. . . . . read more.
