AncestralPath_17Star

Divination and Myth. That is the topic for this September Blog Hop. We here at U.S. Games have so many great decks to choose from for a mythological theme.

AncestralPath_1MagicianWe thought we would feature the Ancestral Path Tarot.

AncestralPath_11StrengthThe Ancestral Path Tarot by Julie Cuccia-Watts threads together the diverse beliefs of various cultures in order to find commonalities of experience between them. It examines the traditions of our ancestors through mythology to reclaim a personal spirituality that enables us to perceive the divine in ourselves and others. The Ancestral Path Tarot emphasizes the living tradition of all human cultures for us to factor into our world view. The deck portrays paths created by ancestors of different times and cultures for our consideration.

AncestralPath_12SwordsThis unique deck features a different culture for each suit. Cups celebrate the legends of Arthur and the British Isles. Sacred Circles (Pentacles) offer up the paths of the Native Americans. Japan holds reign over the swords while Staves (Wands) takes you on a journey through Egypt.

AncestralPath_13WandsThe Major Arcana display a mix of pantheons with some of the artist’s friends and family showing up as characters. This reappearance of the Ancestral Tarot is one we are all very proud of.

    I love this – I don’t own this deck but my have to soon! I love how four major cultural traditions have been woven together into a single deck, and the artwork is beautiful. I’d say the Pentacles and Cups (and the Star above) would be my favorites, though I like them all!

    This is a deck I wanted soooo badly. Found a used copy finally. Now have the republished version as well. I like the four cultures as the four suits. At first I wasn’t sure. Now I am. 😀

    That’s why I love to read your blog posts Stella. I get to see up close these wonderful decks I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to come across. This one’s really lovely.

    What talent Julie has got! Her Maat tarot is absolutely beautiful and I’m very much looking forward to procuring a copy of Journey into Egypt too.

    She’s a lady who knows her mythology and I’m really pleased to see her deck being featured here <3

    This was my second ever deck, and I love it still! Some special favourites are the Oracle at Delphi as the Hierophant, and the Princess of Disks – so warm and grounded 🙂
