REVIEW OF AFRICAN TAROT
3 July 2020
This is Tarot deck came to me rather unexpectedly. My mother bought it for just around 2$ in a charity shop. It was seal in the box complete with the small booklet. The deck is well made by the U.S. Games System, Inc. The design is by Marina Romito. I like this deck very much becuase it's positive energy.
Let me tell you about the first time I use this deck. The cards really spoke to me and it took no effect to understand the answers. I was really impress. I also like the size, it's compactness making it very easy to transport and the box travels well. This deck tends to attract the eye of strong adventuerous woman and I give you a full buy for anyone who wants to experiment outside the traditional Rider Waite Tarot Deck but still stay with in the system. There are no variations and it's one deck that I would recommen beginners as a contender if you are searching for your first tarot deck.
"The exuberant imagery of African Tarot draws largely on the African experience, depicted in a primitive art style. Marina Romito has reinterpreted the standard Rider-Waite images with symbols inspired by indigenous South African culture to create an accessible, uplifting deck. Evoking universal childhood emotions, African Tarot can help you explore your true inner nature.
The back design of the cards is inspired by the Shagaan culture (one of the indigenous ethnic groups in South Africa); the tortoise symbolizes the slow coming of justice.
Marina Romito holds a degree in philosophy, but is primarily a seeker of greater global harmony and truth. She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa."
