Le Tarot Astrologique was published in 1927 in Paris by B. P. Grimaud. The cards were created by George Muchery, an important French occultist (1892-1981), and designed by Henri Armengol, a French artist (1880-1939). At its base an astrological oracle deck, Le Tarot Astrologique seeks to combine the elements of astromancy with tarot. The deck consists of 48 cards: 36 zodiacal sign cards, 9 star and planet cards, and one of each of the ascendants, the ascending node/the descending node, and part of fortune. The zodiac is split into three cards for each sign, 0, 10, and 20. Most cards have double ended card titles, astrological names, descriptions, and symbols of planets. A visually beautiful deck, the design of the cards displays the telltale strong lines and coloring showing the dramatic signs of cards produced before and shortly after the Great War.
Along with the deck, we will provide either a sleeve and tray box (safer for the cards than a standard tuck box) or a pull string burlap bag to store the cards and a translation I did of Muchery's original guidebook from French (I am native in both English and French). The translation gives descriptions of the meanings of each card and a card spread of Muchery’s creation.
This is a facsimile reproduction printed from an original 1929 Muchery deck.
Not included, but if you want to learn more about how to use this deck, there is a book that was written by Muchery and translated to English, The Astrological Tarot. It's 300 pages and all of the major & minor cards are fully illustrated & their symbolic values comprehensively described. It also covers some methods of card spreads & their possible interpretations. Available on multiple websites: thriftbooks, addall, abebooks, and biblio.
If you speak French, I actually can share with you a digital pdf of the original 12 page guidebook that came with the deck! Just shoot me an email at email@example.com
