On the Box: The intention of the Cosmic Tarot is to make the old knowledge accessible and understandable to everyone by using as few secret symbols as possible. You can grasp the meaning without knowing the old secret doctrines of astrology, cabalistic numerology, and the tree of life.
An Excerpt from the Mini Instruction Booklet:
"In our times the search for transcendent meaning and self-redemption has replaced the old mystical religions of a distant god. The Tarot's age-old knowledge is always quiet and reserved, yet it welcomes the seeker like an old friend. The Tarot with its dynamic concept of constant change offers a doctrine for the New Age and this becomes a reliable guide in this chaotic world of shifting social values.
In creating this new Tarot, my intention is to make the old knowledge accessible and understandable to everyone by using as few secret symbols as possible. In this way, people can grasp the meaning without knowing the old secret doctrines of astrology, cabalistic numerology and the tree of life.

Guest Review by Brian Stevenson
The Cosmic Tarot is a deck with an immediate and dramatic appeal. The images are evocatively drawn in pen and ink, with muted pastel colours dominating the palette. Many of the people illustrated in the cards have a remarkable likeness to Hollywood (or even Bollywood!) film stars of the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
The Major Arcana and the court cards all contain detailed figures. Some of these, such as The Emperor, seem to be looking beyond and over the head of the reader. However others, such as the Queen of Swords, appear to look with a piercing gaze, straight at the reader. One of the most dramatic cards is the High Priestess. Her deep penetrating gaze peers over the waters, and stands in a smaller drawing of two lovers, a crescent moon, and the book of alpha and omega.
The Minor Arcana are influenced by the Rider-Waite and they all contain expressive and easy to understand images. The design on the backs of the cards is worth mentioning. A star field contains an elaborate pentagram, with a rising sun and moon and a white rose. The cards would certainly be ideal for beginners and I feel that even someone who has no prior experience of Tarot could begin to interpret these cards.
