The Tarot of Creativity by Aliyah Marr

Rare Artist’s Tarot Deck.

Here is a movie that I created in 2013 about my card deck, The Tarot of Creativity, showing how it was created and how to use it as a tool for creative thinking and to access your own intuition.*

 

HOW IS THE TAROT OF CREATIVITY UNIQUE?

  1. A GAME FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
    This deck was designed as a game to help spark your creative imagination.

  2. WORDS AND IMAGES
    Beautiful surreal images combined with carefully chosen words to help the reader access his/her creative intuition.

  3. A NEW SYSTEM FOR READING TAROT
    This deck introduces a whole new system for reading the tarot.

  4. EASY TO USE FOR NOVICE AND PROFESSIONALS
    A novice can do readings right away with little or no training. This deck was originally created to be used without a “little white book” so that the reader would be encouraged to use their own intuition to read the cards, which is the perfect way to work with any deck, and to learn to read the tarot.

  5. MODERN MEANINGS
    are inscribed right upon the cards enhances and provide depth to the more arcane interpretations of traditional cards. Most of my card titles in the major arcana are based upon traditional tarot keywords/hidden meanings, but I have translated these words into modern terms. My unique system updates the tarot game to a more contemporary and accessible experience for the modern user.

  6. TRADITIONAL TITLES
    are included on the (major arcana) cards, which allows experienced tarot readers to use this deck easily without learning a new system. The court cards adhere to the traditional system as well. As a tarot reader and tarot collector, I find that decks that try to bring in new court card titles to be very distracting: I do not like to have to learn a new system for each deck. I prefer a deck that enhances my reading with new meaning for each card, and this is only possible when I can look at the card, and mentally compare it with the Rider Waite Smith cards that I have memorized. I think that many tarot professionals have a similar outlook on contemporary art decks.

  7. TRACES THE PATH OF CREATIVE MANIFESTATION
    The path of creative manifestation can be traced through this deck. It is a creative tool as well as a tarot deck.

  8. THE PIP CARDS (cards 2-10) WORD GAME
    Each of these lower cards contains two words each, one upright and one reversed. This new system allows for easy interpretations without the need for a guidebook. Two meanings are directly inscribed on the pip cards. These new, modern and accessible card titles are one of the unique strengths of this deck.

  9. MEANINGS INSTEAD OF TITLES
    The titles on the Major Arcana, court cards, and aces are very contemporary interpretations based upon the original traditional tarot card title keywords. Having contemporary meanings instead of obscure traditional titles on the cards can really help spark your intuition! It is a very easy system for reading cards, and unique to this deck. Whether you are an experienced reader or a novice this system enhances your reading abilities and gives invaluable insight.

  10. NO NEGATIVE MEANINGS
    Many people are afraid that they will get a negative reading. They are afraid of the Death, The Devil and The Tower cards. Personally, I never liked the fives—why are they so negative in the traditional decks? There is a good reason for negative fives, but you will have to read my ebook, TAROT UNLOCKED to find out the real meaning of the fives.

I wanted to build a deck that had no negative meanings. The Devil became The Shadow—as shadow exists to define light. Death became Metamorphosis—like a butterfly leaving the cocoon. And the Tower became The Awakening. As for the number five cards, they now reflect the numerological meaning of the card.

  1. ARTIST-MADE DECK
    This rare tarot deck was created by an internationally-exhibited artist and published author. A decade in the making, the words/titles on the cards alone took over one year to complete. The artwork comes from the portfolio of the artist.
