The Pythagorean Tarot

An Interpretation of the Major and Minor Arcana
on Pythagorean and Alchemical Principles

1996, 2001, John Opsopaus

(Ioannes Apollonius Opsopaus)


Special News!

The Pythagorean Tarot book (480 pages) and 78-card deck set has been published by Llewellyn, ISBN 1-56718-449-9. Unfortunately, it is now out of print, but you might be able to find used copies. See also the Errata list.

I do intend to produce a new, expanded edition of the book, so watch for it!

Major Arcana

View all images (large file).

See also the collected Verses on the Trumps (which also appear in the individual descriptions of the trumps).

Minor Arcana

Divination and Other Practical Aspects

These Truths revealed by Image and by Word,
these Secrets great and small, which thou hast heard,
keep safe within thy Soul, a planted Seed,
a Garden of Remembrance for thy need.
Protect these Truths on thee in Trust conferred!
