Zolar's Astrological Tarot Deck

Moderated by: tarotcol. New Topic. Printer Friendly. Demian Brennan-Gould Member Joined:. Illinois USA. So please I'd be happy to do a reading for you with them in return. I've always been a fan of Zolar. I will post both positive aspects and drawbacks concerning this deck. I'll start with the drawbacks because I like to end on a positive note. I have the same issue with this deck as I did with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Cards - the coloring is awfully funky and distracting. I saw some scans online and didn't think the unusual coloring would be very distracting, but when the deck came today it was much darker and clashed a lot more than I thought it would.


The meanings printed on the cards don't seem to reflect actual Tarot meanings either - it seems to be a combination of Tarot and playing card methods; but since playing card suits are featured on the deck I suppose it's to be expected. I'm not sure if I would call this a "Tarot" then - especially since the cards are double sided, the trumps are inaccessible unless you've flipped the deck over a couple times while shuffling.

Also, I found it odd that astrological and planetary aspects were used on the other side of the deck because they are already existent within the Tarot itself. The cards are double sided, which is useful if you bought this deck for more than one purpose.

Everything you wanted to know about Zolar's Astrological Tarot

The playing card correspondences could help you learn how to read playing cards and make Tarot associations much easier than with playing cards alone. The meanings on the deck are printed clearly and worded in such a way that you don't have to guess what exactly it means. Because the Trumps, astrological signs, and planetary influences are on the other side of the deck, you can choose to ignore those and just use the playing card side by omitting the Knights. The booklet is 31 pages long and very detailed.

It contains the traditional meaning of playing cards in the back of the book if you need them. I'm not going to say that this is a bad deck, because I don't think it's right to say that about any deck. But it's not a deck I can see myself using, nor would I recommend it even for a beginner.


It's a fun looking deck, and I'm sure that serious readings can be done with it, but I think people should decide for themselves if that's how they can use it. Love these cards, they are Awsome!! The are easy to use. Even a beginner can use these.

The minor arcana and regular playing card symbols are on one side, the majors and astrological symbols on the other side. We could do a reading with Minor Arcana only, or Major Arcana, but not both.

Can we see that this does not function well as a Tarot deck? There is a short history of the Tarot reasonably well written , followed by a short explanation of the structure of the Tarot. The first seven cards are associated with the intellect, the next seven cards morality and our attitude towards others, and the last seven cards aspects of the material or worldly life. It is to be noted that the Fool 0 , follows Judgment 20 , and the World 21 stands alone.

The number associations are: cards relate to man, and signify creation and enterprise; cards relate to woman, and signify reflection and negation; cards represent youth and materialism; card 10 refers to childhood, a transitory or neuter period.

At the end of the book meanings are given for the regular playing cards i. The top of the card gives keywords for the upright position, the bottom of the card gives keywords for the reversed position.
