REVIEW: KABBALISTIC TAROT

Updated: Oct 1

Unboxing, First Impressions & Review

I have been studying Kabbalah and Kabbalistic Astrology so it is only fitting that I added Kabbalistic Tarot in my studies.


WHAT I LIKE:

1. THE ARTWORK & CARD STOCK.

Kabbalistic Tarot is created by Eugene Vinitski. 'The deck has a conventional structure of 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana, and the additional - the card Tree of Life. Minor Arcana classification by suits is also traditional and is represented by Wands, Cups, Swords and Pentacles. The size of cards 2.7” x 4.7” (70mm x 120 mm). On art paper 350 gm.'

The Kabbalistic Tarot deck utilises the concept developed in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Every card has its Kabbalistic and Astrological Correspondence. The design of the cards is based on the images from three uncut printers sheets in the Rosenwald Collection and the missing ones have been reconstructed.'


'The Kabbalistic Tarot is a 79 cards deck gold framed and companion book in the luxury box, accompanied by the Certificate of Authenticity numbered and signed by authors.'


Cards are framed in gold foil.


2. GUIDEBOOK

The 112 page guidebook is packed with combined information about Kabbalah, Tarot and Kabbalistic Astrology.

3. AVAILABILITY

This is no longer available on Kickstarter but you can purchase a copy here direct from the creator.

4. SHIPPING

Received in 3 months.

5. THE INTERVIEW

INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Princess of Pentacles

Princess of Pentacles is the Earth of Earth showing generosity, kindness, diligence, benevolence, care, bravery, persistence and compassion.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? King of Swords

King of Swords is the Fire of Air. His strengths are bravery, intelligence, skilful and apt to dominate.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? The Magician

In Astrology, the Mag has Mercurian features. Mercury is a dualistic planet, both positive and negative of Mercury can be seen in the Mag card. While the Mag card is fast, easy going and dexterous, he can be a trickster and a deceiver.

WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? Death

In Astrology, the Death card is the Scorpio sign, In Kabbalistic Astrology, Scorpio has 2 levels, lowest level, the Scorpio, one that destroys everything including itself. Second level is the eagle, one who strives toward the Upper World and lastly, the Phoenix, one who rises up burning in the cosmic fire. The Death card teaches cycles of life, rebirth and transformation.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? Knight of Pentacles

The best way to connect with the Kabbalistic Tarot deck is with patience. Given that it is a new system to study, it will take a while to be proficient to it.

OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: 5 of Cups

If not taken seriously, our relationship together may lead to disappointment.

WHAT I HATE:

Just as soon as I received this deck, creator announces the New Kabbalistic Tarot 2020 Color Edition. T_T


SCORE: ★★★★★

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Love the idea of combining Tarot, Astrology and Kabbalah which is why I got so excited when I discovered this deck. Too excited that I immediately felt remorse when the creator announced the New Kabbalistic Tarot 2020 Color Edition, 2 weeks after I received this deck. This might be the reason why I pulled the 5 of Cups as our outcome. T_T

Regardless, this is fun to use as guide material in my Kabbalistic Astrology studies.
