Astrological Tarot Deck with Guidebook, Le Tarot Astrologique
Large 4.75 x 2.75 inch tarot deck printed on quality 350 gsm card stock.
Le Tarot Astrologique was published in 1927 in Paris by B. P. Grimaud. The cards were created by George Muchery, an important French occultist (1892-1981), and designed by Henri Armengol, a French artist (1880-1939).
At its base an astrological oracle deck, Le Tarot Astrologique seeks to combine the elements of astromancy with tarot. The deck consists of 48 cards: 36 zodiacal sign cards, 9 star and planet cards, and one of each of the ascendants, the ascending node/the descending node, and part of fortune. The zodiac is split into three cards (decans) for each sign, 0, 10, and 20. Most cards have double ended card titles, astrological names, descriptions, and symbols of planets. A visually beautiful deck, the design of the cards displays the telltale strong lines and coloring showing the dramatic signs of cards produced shortly after the Great War.
