Faery Wicca Tarot

[Strength of Will] [Crane Bag] Kisma K. Stepanich was inspired to create the Faery Wicca Tarot one day while sitting in a stone circle in County Meath, Ireland. Her deck "blends traditional tarot images with the mystical symbolism of modern Faery magick." There are 83 cards in five groups: the 40 Element cards (suit cards 1-10), the 16 Helper Cards (court cards), the 22 Ancient Ones (major arcana), the Power card (Tree of Life), and 4 Gift or Faery Cards. These last five are unique to the Faery Wicca deck. The four suits represent the four faery cities of the OtherWorld - Falias, Gorias, Findias and Muirias. Each Helper and Ancient One card identifies a character or object from Irish myth. Stepanich also encodes the cards with Gaelic alphabets and sacred symbols. The instruction booklet is larger than most (167 pages). The artist is Renee Christine Yates.
