Legend : The Arthurian Tarot
Rediscover the Arthurian legend as artist and writer Anna-Marie Ferguson blends medieval myth with the wisdom of the Tarot. Speaking to us in a deep, intuitive way, the Legend Tarot expands the traditional interpretations of the cards and enriches your readings by drawing on the mythology of the Arthurian world. The kit includes a newly designed layout sheet that opens the doorway to the higher knowledge of our shared mythology.
The 78 exquisitely rendered watercolor paintings illustrate characters, places, and tales from the legends, blending traditional Tarot symbolism with the Pagan and Christian symbolism of the myth. These images unite mythic elements from all four branches of Arthurian legend‰ÛÓthe medieval romances, Malory‰_s Le Morte D‰_Arthur and Geoffrey of Monmouth‰_sHistory of the Kings of Britain, the Quest for the Holy Grail, and the Celtic legends‰ÛÓto create a system of unmatched richness and depth.
Each card represents the Arthurian counterpart to the Tarot‰_s traditional figures, such as Merlin as the Magician, Morgan le Fay as the Moon, Mordred as the King of Swords, and Arthur as the Emperor.åÊ
