The Tarot of Vampyres With Phantasmagoria Embrace the night as you succumb to visions of blood red roses and feel the impassioned rhythms of your feverishly pounding heart The Vampyre legend is rooted in darkness and seduction yet its eternal message is one of spiritual hunger to taste the DivineFeaturing Ian Daniels' richly evocative Gothic style artwork this hauntingly romantic deck is a tool for spiritual awakening With it you can plumb the depths of your inner shadows and emerge in the radiant light of truthInspired by the Rider Waite structure the deck shows the Fool Priestess and other traditional figures while the suits bear uniue names that call forth the mysterious and macabre Scepters Grails Knives and Skulls The companion book provides detailed card meanings creative exercises original spreads and instructions for creating your own Vampyre character Includes a 78 card deck and a 312 page book Lovely cards i star working on then using the nice book that is included If you search you could find the pdf spanish version on the editor I took these out of the box for the first time shuffled and dealt some cards and understood them perfectly Immediately I've never experienced anything like it I've spent a lot of time with the old RWS and its many clones and even the Thoth for a while and never felt like I made progress with them despite my best effortsWhat it is about this particular deck I don't know It just speaks to me loud and clear Also it is incredibly beautiful I don't regret the time spent with traditional decks I'm glad I have a bit of that knowledge base floating around in my brain and I will probably return to my studies of them from time to time I will be reviewing keywords for the Thoth minors for sure as this is a Thoth inspired deck However I no longer feel like I have to keep struggling with them just because of their places in Tarot historyI feel like this deck very much resembles my inner landscape so to speak and maybe that is why I was able to do a purely intuitive reading right out of the box without having to so much as glance at the companion book My only concern is how the deck will be received in a professional reading situation D It's certainly not for everyone This is my favorite tarot deck of all time and I own a lot of decks In fact I think people who aren't vampire fans will still love it The deck is beautiful and gothic and the cards feel smooth in your hands and are easy to shuffle I really enjoyed the book as well This symbolism was well thought out and Daniels makes you look at the cards in a different way I cannot recommend this set enough As beautiful as the artwork of this tarot deck is what is even stunning is the guidebook that comes with it This work combines vampyre lore concepts from other mythologies as well as kabala in the world of tarot this work draws from both Thoth and Smith Waite as well as being something in its own rightIf this particular deck does not speak to you for me it does sometimes feel like a descent back into my goth youth a regression of sorts the book alone is worth the purchase This book can be used with other decks as it spends most of its time discussing ideas and connections that hold true for the tarot system and is general whilst also being particular when connecting it with the symbols depicted in this deck
