The first tarot to celebrate an African-American culture

The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot book and 79-card deck capture both the spirit and the imagery of Voodoo's African, West Indian, and Catholic influences. Ancient and earth-honoring, Voodoo's practices take on different forms specific to time and place, but its essence remains focused on the loa--the potent spiritual forces of Voodoo that are manifested directly through human beings and their actions.

The authors draw strong parallels between the Waite and Thoth Tarots, the Kabalistic Tree of Life, and the Voodoo tradition as it is practiced in New Orleans. Just as the major and minor arcana of the Tarot represent the archetypes of the human psyche and the natural forces of our world, so do the loa of Voodoo embody the primal energies of the universe. With a variety of spreads and readings, the authors show how the Tarot can be an idea channel through which the loa exercise their powers to teach, advise, and initiate the serious student into their mysteries.

Review Quotes:
The first complete tarot to celebrate the magical roots and rites of an African-American culture.-- "New Age Retailer"

New Orleans Voodoo Tarot is a stunning achievement. Both a graphic tour de force and a fascinating insight into the mysterious, yet compelling, mythos that is called Voodoo.-- "L. Simon Jennings, Alternatives"

The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot is arguably the first truly American tarot as it is a natural extension of the New World spirituality it illustrates.
