This week I am gonna do a review on a tarot deck that I grabbed a few months ago. The Zombie Tarot is a really neat deck, especially since the Zombie craze is at an all time high here in America, with shows like The Walking Dead running wild. The cover art of the death card was all it took for me to be drawn in. Yeah, I know big horror movie buff and lover of pop culture loves a zombie style tarot deck. Big suprise there!! Anyways to get back on track the deck comes with a really cool book with the instructions on how to use the deck. It contains 78 cards that have some awesome artwork. The deck was published by Quirk Productions and copyrighted in 2012.
This deck is divided into the major and minor arcanas like most tarot decks are. There are 22 cards in the major that show the fool as he takes steps from the front door to the end of the world. The minor arcana consists of 56 cards that go through the beef of a situation through characters and behaviors. I have found that my favorite way to read this deck is by doing a simple 3 card draw. You just draw three cards and the first is your past, the second the present, and the third is the future. It is simple and makes it easy to roll forward with a reading. There are various other ways of reading such as the gravestone, the eyeball, the broken heart, and the severed head to have some fun with this deck.
If you are into the horror movie genre you will love this deck. The art has everything from shotguns and knifes, children zombies, and many other neat pieces of art. The artwork I also found, which sometimes doesn’t always work like that, the pictures tell the story for you and make it easy to understand what the card is supposed to mean and what to read from the card. I was pleasantly excited to notice that this deck is great for beginning tarot readers.
We have many really cool tarot decks to choose from in the store. Melissa is always adding new decks daily so be sure to stop in and check them out as we have a full case in the front of the store. If there is a deck that you are interested in and we don’t carry it we can definitely try ordering it for you. Have a great week and we hope to see you soon.
Thanks for reading the blog this week!!!
