I thought I would show off my newest project. It is full 78 card marked tarot deck. It took months of research, but I am very pleased with the result. I had been reading with the Majors only for the better part of a decade, and it was an enjoyable experience to re-acquaint and re-familiarize myself with the suits.

http://www.darcylogan.ca/Tarot_deck.html

It is modern printing of the classic deck used by the Ordo Secreta Sapientiae. During the Victorian esoteric renaissance, the first of the modern occult lodges began to develop from the ashes of various antiquarian societies, as well as quasi- and fringe masonic lodges. Groups like the Golden Dawn and Aurum Solis began exploring the occult significance of older cultures, while less known Orders began to investigate the hidden esotericism of the Renaissance. While it never achieved the notoriety of other occult groups, the Ordo Secreta Sapientae was formed by scholars and students of the occult who believed that hidden beneath the veneer of catholic tradition were ancient symbols and messages. They commissioned a deck of oracle cards based on the art of the renaissance, specifically the Northern Renaissance, that gave an insight into pagan truths, once the Christian iconography was excavated. I merely reproduced the Ordo Secreta Sapientiae deck, and inserted a crib into their back design.

I am looking forward to using it for the first time at a Spring Equinox event in a few weeks


Likely a silly question.... but why, in the Suit of Cups is there a "Five of Clubs"?
Beautiful cards... just a question about the "Five of Clubs" on your webpage.

I am sure it's just a mistake that he has caught by now. I hope so, I've ordered a copy. Smile

@afinemesh

you need to get yourself a virgin, a goat, and half a gallon of unicorn sweat.

Once you have these PM me and I'll talk you through what you need to do.


Or you could just PM Lucien

I have my full deck now.

These are really wonderful.
Now I have to decide what to do with my aged majors that I got when they first came out.
Lucien was kind enough to inclyde a few extra cards for making gaffs if necessary, and a sneaky peek at an upcoming project

This guy has an eye for art and design.
If they haven't already gone, get a set of these cards. They are the pinacle of style and function IMHO

I have to agree with Steve about these cards. They are big and awesome. LOL

When you pull these big boys out, you will get noticed!

These are wonderful cards!! They come wrapped in a nice aged canvas printed with spaces for a 3 card spread. best of all, No memory work! The marks are deviously hidden(Took my magician friend 15 minutes of studying the backs to find them so, laymen will be oblivious), yet the marks are VERY easy to read(I am a bit far sighted and have no trouble reading them). They are a bit thinner than the commercial Tarot decks that you may be familiar with, but nothing in my opinion to be concerned about. I am happy to have one of the first sets of the majors that are thicker. These will be great to travel with or for walk round, while the full set will be what I will use to study with and for sittings. I highly suggest getting a set. looking forward to other great things from Lucien!!

My little beauties have also arrived--they are powerful, yes, but I think I can control them--

A containment unit may be needed, silk and silver, that's the key..
