    Beautiful new deck!, April 18, 2009

    A very unique new deck has appeared on the Tarot market, The Fifth Tarot. What makes it unique is the addition of a fifth suit, the element of ether. The extra suit (called Lotus) brings the number of cards to 92. All of the suits are depicted with symbols from nature: fire, shells, feathers, stones, and lotuses. This is very much a deck for the 21st century, attuned as it is to the earth and to our awakening consciousness. It is a strong, yet gentle, spiritual deck, yet can shed insight on more mundane issues in our lives.

    Created by Martien and Teressena Bakens, The Fifth Tarot is a beautiful book and deck package, published by Blue Dolphin Publishing. Measuring 3.5 by 5 inches, the cards are laminated and sturdy, with a reversible back, depicting four interlocking squares called a quincunx. Teressena’s art is detailed, colorful, soft and inspiring. The illustrations are unique to this deck and its purpose, and it is not a Rider Waite Smith clone. It is an uplifting, forward-looking deck, perfect for meditation as well as divination. The traditional court cards are renamed Seeker, Initiate, Apprentice and Elementor .

    The companion book, The Fifth Tarot: Restoring the Fifth Element, is an excellent guide to this wonderful deck. It is fully illustrated with a black and white image of each card. Detailed descriptions and explantions of he symbolism appearing on each card help guide the reader through the imagery. The borders of the Major Arcana include four symbols: a planetry or astrological glyph, a star symbol (representing spirtual and universal laws of the universe) a Mayan glyph and a sacred symbol of MU. All of these are explained in an appendix. All card descriptions include a section on divinatory meanings as well as practical applications to bring the energy of each card into our daily lives.

    I recommend this deck for anyone interested in Tarot. It is new, fresh and offers a unique way of seeing and working with the Tarot. It is a deck that will reward study and meditation.

    This is a deck that you will want to play and work with!

    This review is from: The Fifth Tarot: Restoring the Fifth Element: Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Ether (Perfect Paperback)

    This Tarot deck was created for the new Age of Aquarius. It is not your usual Tarot deck. There are 92 cards in this deck, because of the addition of a 5th suit, containing the usual 14 cards. There are 5 elemental suits, that is, fire, water, air, earth, and ether; ether is the element, according to the authors of the book in this Tarot set, which “is the life force that flows through all creation”. The symbols for the suits are also not the usual rods, cups, swords and pentacles, but are fire, shells, feathers and stones, respectively, being symbols from nature. The symbol for the 5th suit is lotuses. The Court cards also have different designations, not those of royalty, but following the status of knowledge in the suit, namely, seeker, initiate, apprentice and elementor. There are 22 Major Arcana cards, however there are some changes in the names of the Majors. The artwork is beautiful and colorful. It is multi-cultural, with much symbolism from Native American and so-called primitive societies. The artwork is full of symbolism, and some of it is abstract and surreal. The pip cards are not fully illustrated, in general, but there is more than just the corresponding number of elements pictured. On the borders of the Majors cards, there are astrological and other esoteric symbols, and the pip cards contain one or two word designations on the bottom of each card. I found these designations very helpful. There is a book included in the set, which gives detailed discussions for each card, including divinatory meanings and practical applications. The discussions of the cards tend to be based on spiritual themes. For those who are interested in the relationship between Tarot and Kabbalah, the book does discuss the relationship between the cards of the Major Arcana and the Tree of Life. I highly recommend this deck as a unique Tarot experience. If you are waiting for me to say something negative, here it is; the box in which this set arrived came apart quite easily.
