I’m finally getting my review of the Rota Tarot up, mainly because it feels weirdly familiar like I’ve had it forever. I forget it’s not part of me or some shit. This is my travel deck and I take it most places with me which, shittily, makes it one of my most used and least photographed decks. For that I apologize.
The Rota Tarot, by Soror Tzadkiel, is a unique blend of several different approaches to the tarot. From Golden Dawn to the Qabalistic Tarot, there is a shit-ton of stuff to unpack from each card. This is a deck made by someone who knows exactly what they’re doing.
Even despite the expanse if its inspiration and teachings, this is a cheerful and approachable little deck. Well, I say “little” because I have the mini version.
There’s also a more standard-sized version, but I love this one’s size.
This is one of those decks that can be as easy or difficult to use as you choose to make it.
The illustrations are simple, but manage to convey an ass-load of symbolism.
(Also, The Magician is Ronan Lynch creating Cabeswater and nothing will ever convince me otherwise.)
I would recommend this deck to everyone. The titles at the base of each card make it beginner-friendly, but a more experienced reader could dig into these cards for years on end and still find new things.
Don’t let the pip-style minors scare you. Like I said: titles.
