Do randomly drawing cards have an impact on one’s life? Or in whatever is happening in your life? Many card readers admit that tarot can show you the choices you have. The tarot cards do not instruct you what to do or what your future will be, but the possibilities available depend on the path that you take.
Tarot cards have been in existence for many years. In the human lifetime period, at least centuries of human life can constitute a long time, right? The traditional tarot has been cultured, and it has evolved to the shape it takes today. In general, a tarot deck comprises of 78 cards, with the Minor and the Major Arcana. And each card has a specific contribution to the reading outcome.
The traditional tarot cards were first used in Europe in 1375, according to the tarot historian Tom Tadfor Little and later brought from the Islamic society where they have been used for centuries.
These are a combination of tarot cards with a philosophy concept. With Philosophy Cards, you embrace your existential freedom and create the future you desire. This fantastic idea was created by Melanie Mascio, living in Los Angeles with her little dog, Sprout. A Philosophy teacher and she creates art at the intersection of popular culture and philosophy.
The Sleek Art Designs
We have great designs for each philosophy card, we have replaced the Major Arcana with a suit called “World,” and each of the 22 World cards represents a different aspect of our existential relationship with the world. Each card as a drawn figure which represents the philosophical concept for the card, and the remaining four suits each represent a specific existentially-relevant aspect of our daily life experiences. Think of each design as little insight into what it takes for you to shape your world and yourselves. The four suits are Will, Emotion, Reason, and Action, and each image represents the four suits that are closer to the original conception of the tarot as a deck of playing cards. A gender-balanced court will replace the androcentric court from the traditional tarot deck.
The Features of the Philosophy Cards
The set consists of 78 hand-drawn 3×5″ cards, which are slightly more significant than the traditional tarot cards, and the paper material will be a luxurious 280 gsm card-stock w/gloss varnish. There will be a metallic gold-foiled stamp on the back of the cards.
Each card comes with a full-color guide book, containing an explanation of each card relating to the philosophical concept the card represents and the card it replaces from the traditional tarot deck. The guide book is well illustrated, 1 page is devoted to each card, and there is a section for your notes. The guide book is insightful, with a “food for thought” questions that are used to guide your reading of the cards.
The cards come with a beautifully designed cloth pouch, with an original pattern and a metallic gold stamp. The model and stamp designed by an amazing artist, Silvia Lasmar.
