Garden of Life Tarot Art Contest

Overview

Brief Explanation of the
Garden of Life Tarot Project

Original Garden of Life Tarot Deck

The Garden of Life Tarot Deck offers an evolutionary development in Tarot. When completed, the deck is 108 cards, expanded to a fifth Suite, Vorti, to represent Spirit and addition of Pi and other transcendental numbers, along with a fifth court card, The Child, for each Suite.

Purpose:

As with all decks, the Garden of Life Tarot facilitates direct communication between the mind of the reader and the images on each card in order to evoke personal understanding and development. To supplement understanding, some suggested interpretive guidance is provided for each card.

Arrangement

Selecting one or more cards offers the reader the opportunity to view one's world through other windows, and to study the entire deck in order offers the advanced student a window onto human development of this century and beyond. Some Garden of Life Arrangements are also included.
