The Ascension Tarot is a traditional Marseille deck printed in a square format, so that each card has four possible orientations, instead of the standard two.
In addition to Upright and Reversed, Ascension Tarot cards can also be Declining or Ascending, so that each card has four variations of its basic meaning.
The Ascension Tarot can be used used in new layouts, such as the Insight Spread and Hourglass Spread, or in traditional layouts, such as the Celtic Cross, Horseshoe, or Three-Card spreads (see the "Card Layouts" booklet for details).
The card meanings (see the “Card Meanings” booklet for details) have been adapted from those of the Marseille deck. If you wish to use other meanings, such as those from a Tarot book or another deck, the Declining meaning should represent the transition from Upright to Reversed, whereas the Ascending meaning should represent the transition from Reversed to Upright.
Note: When shuffling the cards, it’s important to rotate one of the stacks a quarter turn each time, so that the cards will come up with different orientations.
Cards are printed with smudge-resistant UV coating and linen finish.
