What Does The Deck Say? June 11 2014

The Legacy of the Divine’s meanings read like a reconciliation between Waite and Crowley. While purists of either system will be howling at the mingling of meanings and symbolism, the deck stands for itself and Leisa ReFalo’s meanings have proven themselves over the years.

The Legacy of the Divine and the Sweeney Tarot are the only decks in my stable I read reversals for. While Waite does have explicit reversed meanings, I look at the neighboring cards and the context of the query to determine if the cards in question are ill-dignified or not.  Having all the cards come up reversed is a significant rarity for me. I don’t “correct” an all reversed throw. If tarot is a game of chance, then all chances are equally valid.

The Legacy of the Divine tarot is an artistic work by Ciro Marchetti. While the imagery is based loosely on the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, the official meanings of the deck are a collaboration between Ciro Marchetti, Ruth Ann, Wald Amberstone, James Ricklef, and Leisa ReFalo and demonstrate a mix of Waite’s and Crowley’s systems as well as symbolism sparked by Ciro’s art in the cards. Purists might want to shield their eyes. The meanings would not work well with any other deck, but with the Legacy of the Divine, they make a perfect match. Certain imagery and symbolism will not make sense until the reader understands they spring from the short story included in the official guidebook. It is up to the reader to keep the story and fiction, or to use their own personal meanings for the cards.
