Please note that the listings for the deck sets do not include shipping. I list shipping by DHL and postal services separately.
Please take note that this purchase will be shipped on Friday 10 September 2021.
The listing includes :
- The Mysteries of Black Madonna tarot deck of 80 cards (79 tarot cards plus title card)
- A paperback guidebook of 160 pages
- A black velvet tarot pouch handmade
- A small Black Madonna statue
- One of a variety of Black Madonna holy cards brought back from various pilgrimage sites
The deck is printed by an accredited neutral carbon footprint printing company in Cape Town that specializes in small and unique works of art. The cards are printed on 380 gsm with a soft matt laminate layer.
This is a unique deck based on the mystical path of the Black Madonna and it is designed to be used as a tool on the spiritual journey. It has been five years dedicated to research, pilgrimage, ritual, ceremony, and the creation of 79 shrines. This deck is a book of altars, opening the door to a deeply sensual experience of the mystery of She Who wears the Black Cloak of the Night Sky. Here you will discover little known names, long forgotten rituals, and a fragrance once known. My vision is that this book of sacred altars will become a flowering and fragrant offering on many altars dedicated to Her, and that you will experience her direct gaze of wholeness.
I am printing only small batches at a time and the deck, like the Mysteries of Mary will never exceed 1000 decks in total. In that way I can keep the sacred energy of this powerful work of art intact. Each deck is blessed in a special ceremony before they are packaged and sent to you. Each part of the set is hand made by myself or at least found and discovered by myself as part of the process of birthing a sacred altar. As you know I create my decks as part of my own spiritual journey and my devotive practise. This deck is a work of art, dedicated to the Holy Black Mother in all aspects, manifestations and our own philosophies, culture, traditions and understanding. As with the Mysteries of Mary, the guidebook is not only a tarot guide, but also a definitive guidebook to the mystical path of the Black Madonna (with in-depth historic, political and religious research over the past 20 years).
The shipping cost is not included in the price of the deck set. Shipping is available in a separate listing. International registered airmail is extremely problematic and unreliable due to the Covid pandemic. The tracking from Africa to the rest of the world is not active and updates are not possible. Please take this into consideration when you decide to buy the postal shipping and understand that there is nothing I can do once the deck has been shipped. This is why I negotiated a special deal with DHL Courier Express.
