9780738701950: The Quest Tarot

A Visual Feast for the Eyes, Mind, and Spirit

You're going to love the brilliant and colorful imagery on The Quest Tarot! Its familiar design and the keywords on each card make it ideal to learn the Tarot. For more depth you can work with the symbolism that includes the I Ching, runes, animals, Kabalah, gemstones and more.

Hidden on the court cards is an easy-to-use system that will let you quickly answer yes/no questions. The difficulty of timing in predictions is finally resolved by using a clock symbol on each card. For more information about people discussed in your readings the cards indicate hair, eye, and skin color. Everything is explained in the accompanying 288-page book.

The Quest Tarot can be used in so many different ways that it really can be considered a universal divination tool. The more you learn about astrology, the runes, the I Ching, and other systems, the more information you can add to your readings and the more useful this deck will become. However, if you're like most people, discovering all of the amazing uses of this deck is just a bonus to the joy you'll experience as you gasp in awe at the art. The deck is filled with intense colors and 3D computer realism and surrealism. The background in The Fool appears to have been cut from the Grand Canyon. Pillars around The Magician seem to be transparent light bound in place. This may be the most amazing deck you'll ever see...or use!

the stars, planets, and
The astrological aspects in the Quest Tarot follow traditional interpretations.
What follows is a shorthand guide to the essence of the planets and
their configurations. You can easily look up the cards by referring to the
first few words in each paragraph. Also, the planetary associations have
been highlighted in bold to make them easier to find. Pictures of the actual
cards have been included so that you can become familiar with the symbols
as they appear on the cards.
The planets and stars move like a grand machine above us. They have
been considered magical ever since we could raise our heads and look up.
Astrology has been through quite a renaissance. The planets tell us their
stories using symbols, glyphs, and circles. If we watch the planets carefully,
we will realize that they shed their light upon us as influential energy.
Imagine that a planet or star is a colored light. When that light is in the
right position, it influences how we see our surroundings and therefore
how we react to our surroundings. We still have free will and those who
are enlightened are probably the least affected by the energy of the stars,
though they cast their influence anyway.
It is important that we become aware of the movement of our little
planet through the universe. We are all traveling so quickly (around 700
miles per hour around the sun) that we forget to stop and contemplate
how our existence is a miracle. By taking the time to look up and even to
learn about what we see in the heavens, we open ourselves up to the divine
guidance the heavens offer us.

the yes/no feature
The yes/no feature is one of the newest additions to the classic Tarot. In
older traditional decks, you cannot easily get direct answers to questions.
The classic Tarot shows, for the most part, what I call energy influences
surrounding the question. These subtle energy influences are most easily
read in the Celtic Cross spread or the Quest Tarot spread.
One of the reasons the Ouija board is popular is because you can easily
and without any training get direct and easily understood answers to your
questions. With the Quest Tarot you can easily get direct and meaningful
answers to your questions using both the subtle and, now, the direct mechanics
of these cards.
Included on the court cards are special symbols that, when separated
from the rest of the cards, allow you to ask direct yes-and-no questions.
The possible answers that the symbols represent are “Yes,” “No,” “Maybe,”
“The Answer Lies in the Future,” and “The Answers Lies in the Past.”
Before you start using this feature, let’s take a look at the symbols.
These special symbols, located at the top-center of the court cards, look
like little daggers. Once you know the key, you can easily remember and
use these little daggers to get your direct answers.
Why daggers? The little daggers are a smaller representation of the
Swords symbols in the Tarot. Swords are the cards of thought, and the daggers
represent “little,” or concise, thought. The answers they give are short
and sweet. Swords are also a very directional signal. From the handle of the
daggers to the tip, you visually get the idea of little arrows pointing the way.
These little daggers cut through our mental fog quickly and pin down a
simple but direct answer.
The first symbol, shown here, is the “Yes” symbol.
When you have both daggers pointing straight up, you have
the answer “Yes.” Picture in your mind a hero holding his or
her dagger straight up toward the sky in victory and joy.
The next symbol is the “No” symbol.
You’ll notice that both daggers are pointing down toward
the earth, which ties in with the “thumbs down” symbol
often used today. The energy of the downward-pointing
daggers is toward the earth. This returns...
