Filled with rich amounts of symbolic imagery that will help you find the answers you seek, the Rider-Waite Tarot is the world`s most popular tarot deck. The Rider, Waite, Smith Tarot Deck Mr. Waite, though born in America, spent most of his life in England. He was a scholar of occultism, and became known for taking a logical, systematic approach to spiritual and occult studies. This symbolic Tarot deck captured much of the abstract realm of Tarot reading and made it easily understood for the average person. The cards were originally published in December 1909 by William Rider And Son of London. The deck was the product of a collaborative effort between artist, Pamela Colman Smith (born 1878 died 1951) and Dr Arthur Edward Waite (born 1857 died 1942.) Both Smith and Waite were members of the Order Of The Golden Dawn, a famous occult group of the 19th Century. For some reason (sexism no doubt), Pamela Smiths’ contribution is usually ignored, and the deck is commonly called the Rider-Waite Tarot. The symbols used were influenced by the 19th century magician and occultist Eliphas Levi. During WWII, the original printing plates for this deck were destroyed in a bomb raid. We also have it available in poker size deck and a GIANT 4″ x 5 3/4″ size! Check our other auctions Copyright 2010 Tavern Games

Las cartas de Rider Waite: El oráculo sagrado de la vida (Spanish Edition)

El oráculo sagrado de la vida. La Sacerdotisa representa una apertura hacia el interior de uno mismo para que podamos tomar contacto consciente con áreas inexploradas de nosotros mismos. Es la Maestra, la reserva, la discreción y el silencio. Mientras que La Estrella es un canto a la frescura emocional, a no tener miedo a disfrutar de cuanto nos rodea, a la curación del espíritu gracias a un derroche de sensaciones, a la posesión de paz mental. El Mago, la número 1 de las cartas del Tarot tradicional, es el comienzo de todo, el toque mágico que pone en funcionamiento las cosas, los hechos. Es el alquimista, el prestidigitador, el que posee el poder de la acción, el que impulsa lo que aún no ha empezado. No te dejes influenciar por los demás y sigue tus propias ideas, tú eres el dueño de tu propia vida. Poco a poco se desgranan así el significado de todas las cartas de Rider Waite, que se distinguen de otros mazos por la belleza simbólica de sus figuras y por la adivinación natural. El Loco es este joven que está representado en la carta, que con sus pocas pertenencias, lo que ha vivido hasta ahora, al hombro se enfrenta a lo desconocido nos insta a dar el salto, a no tener miedo.

Shadows of Life and Thought: the Autobiography of A.E. Waite

A.E. Waite was one of the most famous occult authors in the English language. The Rider-Waite tarot, designed by Waite and illustrated by Pamela Coleman Smith, is the most popular in the world and the template for most modern tarot decks. The accompanying A Pictorial Key to the Tarot, is one of the bestselling books on the subject. As translator of Éliphas Lévi’s dogme et rituel de haute magic, (Transcendental Magic) he has influenced and inspired much of the occult revival in the English-speaking world, including his arch-enemy Aleister Crowley. Books such as The Hermetic Museum, The Book of Black Magic (or Book of Ceremonial Magic) and works on Rosicrucianism, alchemy, Freemasonry, the Grail tradition and other esoteric subjects are widely read today. Shadows of Life and Thought, long out of print, details his life from his early love of books and the realm of Faërie through his involvement with the Golden Dawn and Freemasonry and his friendship with Arthur Machen to the esoteric Christian mysticism that became the centre of his life and work. Newly typeset, this Bardic Press book reproduces the text of the original edition.

The Book of Ceremonial Magic (A Timeless Classic): By Arthur Edward Waite

Originally called The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. The Book of Ceremonial Magic by Arthur Edward Waite is an attempt to document many of the famous grimoires, explaing the history behind them and at the same time refuting many of the legends surrounding them. He then goes on to discuss the theology contained within the grimoires and finally goes on to synthesize the many famous grimoires into one complete system.

Saint-Martin: The French Mystic: By A.E. Waite

During the second half of the eighteenth century it may be said without exaggeration that the intellectual, historical and political centre of all things was in the kingdom of France. The statement obtains not only because of the great upheaval of revolution which was to close the epoch, but because of the activities which prepared thereto. I know not what gulfs dispart us from the scheme and order of things signified by the name of Voltaire, by Diderot and the Encyclopædists at large, or what are the points of contact between the human understanding at this day and that which was conceived Condorcet in his memorable treatise. But about the import and consequence of their place and time I suppose that no one can question. The same land and the same period were the centre also of occult activities and occult interests, which I mention at once because they belong to my subject, at least on the external side, since it happens quite often that where occultism is about on the surface there is mysticism somewhere behind. We may remember in this connection that a Christian mystical influence had been carried over in France from the last years of the seventeenth century through certain decades which followed: it was that of Port Royal, Fénelon and Madame Guyon, owing something—almost unawares—to the Spanish school of Quietism, as this in its turn reflected, without being aware of the fact, from pre-Reformation sources.
