The Gendron Tarot Book, by Melanie Gendron, $12.00

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.75 x 4.75 inches, or 70 x 120 mm.

Back of card: Black field of stars, with thin gray/brown frame. In center, a blue sphere (earth?) with flowers with a violet field around it. Quite pretty. May be inverted.

Booklet included: Yes, 57 pages, 2.5 x 4 inches, or 64 x 103 mm.

Publisher: US Games. Printed in Belgium.

Comments: In addition to the usual 78, there's a title card, and a card with this inscription:

I am that which emanates beauty and all manner of life, moon, dancing stars, abundant earth, ocean's depth to match my heart. I pierce the void and multiply variety innumerable. I am love without condition for I am all that is. Every act of love celebrates my spirit. I am guidance, sanctuary, your highest self; I am the way home. Hear my call and come to me for we've been separate only in dreams."

We've had this deck for some time before we could get it up. A houseguest fell in love with this & instead of scanning, we got lots of readings. It was a fair swap, I think.

Look at the Ten of Swords. Compare it to the Rider, or the Cosmic Tribe, both of which feature swords piercing human bodies. Here the swords stand as guardians to a ten-step path. My idea is the ten swords represent ten trials on ten ascending steps to the prize at the top. A friend saw it differently: The figure at the top has to take ten important steps to get down to the matter at hand. As we've said before, what you see on a card is what's important. This card, a refreshingly different Ten of Swords, lets you see both upwards and downwards. That's good.

Suits are the usual Swords, Wands, Pentacles & Cups. Court cards are King, Queen, Prince & Princess.

Major Arcana (in order): Fool, Magus, High Priestess, Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, Lovers, Chariot, Strength, Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, Hanged One, Transition, Temperance, Deceiver, Tower, Star, Moon, Sun, Judgment, Universe.

A very beautiful deck.
