So I picked up this deck today called “The Daemon Tarot”.
It’s a non-traditional deck consisting of only 68 cards which contain the portraits of different demons some of which I’ve never heard of before.The demons contained are from the “Dictionnaire Infernal” or translated “Infernal Dictionary”.
The deck came with an actual book containing 2 pages to each demon.
One page with the portrait and the other page with a short history of the demon,the authors interpretation of the demon in question plus what the card might hold,and finally a divination meaning to the card.
The author says these cards are good for one card draws and he gives a layout that is unique to the deck which reminds me of a simple rune layout in the form of a cross consisting of 5 cards face up then a 6th card face down to the right of the layout which could represent someone who could help you if the situation doesn’t look good or could correspond to the demon itself.
A friend of mine has a simular deck called "The Infernal Tarot"and he says each day he draws a card and gets the demon Furfur.
He said the last draw where he drew Furfur he was told to shut up and listen.
He didn’t reveal to me what was told to him,but he’s been my friend for 13 years and I trust him.
I hadn’t seen him awhile and he was brought back into my life through me performing a ritual to bring someone to practice with.
I’m introducing him to EA’s works amd we are planning on colaborating in the dark arts.
But I digress.
Has anyone used the cards before?
If so what were your experiences?
I also bought the “Rider Waite Deck” to see how different it is to the “Thoth Deck”
(Which I already know there’s quite a difference but want to see if these cards will be easier for a novice such as myself)
Anyway I would love to hear your guy’s inputs and/or thoughts on “The Daemon Tarot”
