NIGHT SUN TAROT REVIEW
Through a combination of various societies, tarot cards systems, and communications, the Night Sun Tarot has created a symbolic dark language. The 78 cards’ geometric art is an interesting mix of the primitive as well as the advanced.
Lo Scarabeo’s Night Sun Tarot deck is a new and effective one. The deck combines the Thelemic mentors Aleister Crowley and Rider Waite Smith images. It also incorporates Eastern necromancy as well as Golden Dawn. Although the Night Sun Tarot may seem simple, it isn’t new. It isn’t a deck designed to be exemplary of a musician or an adorable idea. This deck is a wonderful combination of magickal trainings.
The Night Sun Tarot’s art is modern, energetic, and similar to visuals unique image methods (believe Sandman), with great focus to information and vibrant, clear colours. Many of the deck’s photos are quite facing, as you might expect from such engaging effects. Baphomet is depicted as The Devil and Death as an (extremely) pregnant female. This deck may not suit you if you prefer partial nakedness or not.
NIGHT SUN TAROT CARD DETAILS
Fabio Listrani, a musician, has taken a dual approach to images. One is through signs that represent both western and eastern beginning. The second is natural. This involves the connection and development of signs with the arcanum/arcane at one entity with each component of a continuum.
The Minor Arcana has the same personalities that appear in the Major Arcana. There is a Christ-like figure with a crown and thorns, a sadhu with a mala, and a modern-tribal lady. Crowley, a round-deal with kids with a puncturing eyes (evocative Crowley), all of whom make many looks around the deck. Each fit has its own actor of personality.
These cards have so many icons that it is difficult to list them all in one short review. If ever there was a deck of tarot cards that was worthy of being described, the Night Sun Tarot is it. Each element of these cards has a very symbolic and magical meaning, which is why it is not discussed in any information in the Little White Book.
