Design and Artwork
“Notoria: Tarot in Light” by Fabio Listrani is a visually stunning tarot deck that explores the theme of light and angels, drawing inspiration from Ars Notoria, part of the Lesser Key of Solomon. This deck, a counterpart to the Goetia – Tarot in Darkness, features 78 cards adorned with illustrations that showcase angels and forces of light, radiating with vibrancy and mystical energy.
Symbolism and Themes
This deck is a testament to the balance between light and darkness within the human soul. It includes 72 angels from Johannes Reuchlin’s 16th-century grimoire, plus six additional angels, aligning with both major and minor arcana elements. The planetary system within the deck adds another layer of esoteric symbolism, enhancing its divinatory potential.
Usage and Experience
Users are drawn to the deck for its thematic depth and artistic beauty. The high-quality, glossy cardstock ensures durability, while the unique interpretation of traditional tarot elements, like wands depicted as candles, offers a fresh perspective. However, some users suggest improvements like expanded guidance on card navigation, color coding for easier readability, and additional online resources.
