Step into astonishing Babylonian temples and gardens, the land of the first civilization, the cradle of humanity where divination emerged. Where the Chaldeans, professional diviners, performed practical magic to elicit answers from gods to humans’ questions about destiny to overcome the uncertainty of earthly life. No matter how much you know about Babylon, when you see the New Babylonian Tarot cards, majestic figures of ancient kings, queens, and diviners it takes your breath away. The path traced by the book “Divination Manual: The Sacred Mysteries of Babylon” takes you from ancient knowledge of the universal order to the Chaldeans’ magical rituals for prosperity and well-being. You discover that predicted evil events are not assigned, and you have free will to avoid the dreaded consequences of evil simply by performing “the undoing” ritual to heal your destiny. Welcome to the magical world of New Babylonian Tarot.   

 

The colorful cards are designed to be in touch with the magical message from Babylon. Beautiful images in the trumps and numbered cards come from historical Babylonian sources. The characters are finely detailed and expressive with determined faces but without nudity that was uncharacteristic of Babylonian culture and may distract you from a reading. Kings, queens, and diviners wear costumes corresponding to that era. Figures in the cards are depicted in a realistic manner to create feelings of the deeper engagement. They look gorgeous and earthly at the same time to much mundane questions in a reading.  

New Babylonian Tarot is a full 78 card tarot deck. Following the Smith-Waite composition and applying colorful Babylonian images, the cards create a particular inspiration for a Tarot reader. The luxury cards are borderless, gilded edged, and they have rounded corners. Due to the symmetrical backside design, the cards can be used reversed. The cards' backs resemble bas-reliefs of Ishtar gates. The bricks in the gate were covered in a blue glaze meant to represent lapis lazuli. Bulls, dragons and flowers on enameled yellow and black glazed bricks symbolize the goddess Ishtar. 

Standard Sized Cards

The cards of size 2.7” x 4.7” (70mm x 120 mm) are printed on high quality 350 gsm stock. Your deck will come in a beautiful, sturdy two-piece box with a 120-page book.  

Large (Jumbo) Sized Cards

The deck comprises 78 extra large cards and will come in a sturdy two-piece box with LWB. The cards sized 3.5” x 5.75” (89 mm x 146 mm) will be printed on 300 gsm German finest & superior smooth quality card stock with a black core. If you choose The Large Collector’s Deck, you will receive the digital copy of “Divination Manual: The Sacred Mysteries of Babylon” for free.

 

 

A 120-page companion book “Divination Manual: The Sacred Mysteries of Babylon” shows how the Babylonians bridged understanding of the Universal laws and magical rituals to develop the practical divinatory techniques to make accurate predictions. This informative book guides you to the roots of divination, showing how to employ some elements of this old mix of art and magic for your Tarot reading. It has an active link to ancient and timeless divinatory knowledge and practices from Babylon to ancient Greece and Rome, and then to the Renaissance epoch when Tarot was created. The practical information in each chapter is designed to strengthen your Tarot reading potential.

Risks and challenges

All risks have been calculated and taken into consideration prior this Kickstarter campaign. Prototypes of the Babylonian Tarot cards and the companion book “Divination Manual: The Sacred Mysteries of Babylon” are ready to print. I have a preliminary agreement with a reputable printer to provide a high-quality card (the same printer who printed Venetian Carnival Tarot Kit with excellent quality after my Kickstarter campaign in January 2017). I am fully confident in my ability to print Babylonian Tarot and all extras and ship it all over the world. I do my best to print this magical Tarot deck quickly and deliver it on time. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
