Waiting for the arrival of a new deck is a practice which develops one’s patience. Ha! I am in the process of doing some looking into a Tarot deck based on an indigenous American folkloric tradition, albeit a modern one. I ordered the 2017 Santa Muerte Tarot deck standard edition by Fabio Listrani. It will be my next blog review.
The card that first caught my attention is the one pictured at the left, Temperance. Just one look and I was off searching for the other images of the deck. The minors have some scenes which adhere to the Rider-Waite format, while others show images based on the theme of the deck.
Not being involved in the cult of Santa Muerte, the upcoming review will focus on how indigenous American cultural symbology works in divination.
