The Arthurian legend is far more than a tale for children -- just as the Tarot is far more than a fortune-telling game. Both embody an age-old collective wisdom which speaks to us on a deep, intuitive level. Artist and writer Anna-Marie Ferguson has linked these two powerful symbologies to make the Tarot more accessible, deepen the traditional interpretations of the cards and enrich your readings by drawing on the compelling mythology of the Arthurian world.
The 78 exquisitely rendered watercolor paints of the Legend Tarot illustrate characters, places and tales from the legends which blend traditional Tarot symbolism with the equally significant spiritual aspects of these myths. The images unite mythic elements from all four branches of Arthurian legend -- the medieval romances, Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur and Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain, the Quest for the Holy Grail, and the Celtic legends -- to create a system of unmatched richness and depth.
Each card represents the Arthurian counterpart to the Tarot's traditional figures, such as Merlin as the Magician, Morgan le Fay as the moon, Mordred as the King of Swords and Arthur as The Emperor.
Accompanying the deck is a full color Celtic Cross layout sheet to further inspire and guide your readings, and the book A Keeper of Words, which explains the divinatory meanings of the cards, their symbolism and the legend associated with each of them.
