The Tarot of Transformation Deck & Book Set

by Willow Arlenea (artist) & Jasmin Lee Cori (writer)

The Tarot of Transformation Deck & Book Set
Price: $39.95
Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 3.5 x 5.25 inches, or 89 x 134 mm.

Back of card: Look at the border on the Magician, upper left corner, above. It's lavender. The back of the card is a very deep shade of the same thing, purple, actually. There are darker swirls, but not very contrasty. Is not symmetrical, but you have to look very close to notice, so this deck may be inverted.

Book included: Yes, 139 pages, 5.5 x 8.5 inches, or 14 x 21.5 cm. No illustrations of any kind. Tiny type.

Publisher: RedWheel/Weiser. Printed in China.

Comments: Artist Willow Arlenea holds a Master's Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, CO, but has spent her professional life as an artist. Writer Jasmin Lee Cori has a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Indiana State University (1976) & has subsequently worked in institutions & clinics. Presently she supplements her private practice with free-lance writing. Aside from the book to this deck, her other books include The Tao of Contemplation (published by Weiser, 2000), and, Freefall to the Beloved (1996), a self-published book of poetry. Neither woman claims any previous experience with tarot, which becomes clear when you read the book & look at the cards. One small indication: The Suit of Wands is given over to the seven chakras. Never mind that seven chakras only account for half the suit of 14 cards.

So these are cards-as-therapy, or, if you like, 78 Positive Affirmations for Modern Living, as indicated by the keywords on the tops of the cards, which are amplified in the book. I could go on (you should see previous drafts), but if you find the cards pretty - and they are - then that will do.
