The Angel Tarot is nothing like a traditional deck of angel cards. The 72 angels of the Kabbalah (or Shem HaMephorash) are extremely powerful heavenly beings that provide assistance to mortals while also ruling over their hellish counterparts, the 72 demons of the Goetia.
When summoning an angel, their sigil (a kind of esoteric calling card) is supposed to be drawn on a piece of pure virgin parchment in red ink. To echo this color palette, the cards are made to look like fresh, pure parchment. The borders of each card are deep crimson, which creates a striking contrast.
The magical symbols are real.
The artwork is hauntingly divine.
These aren't your Aunt Doreen's angel cards . . .
About the Author
One of the foremost occultists of the modern era, Travis McHenry has written books on the history of the tarot and a memoir about his ten-year research study into paranormal phenomena. A native of rural Pennsylvania, Travis grew up surrounded by the folklore of the Appalachian Mountains, which shaped his desire to uncover and share the historical truths hidden behind mythological stories.
He began studying the dark arts in the late 1990s when he stumbled upon a secretive coven of witches who subsequently befriended him and allowed him to publish the first written history of their magical tradition. Travis has been a student of many religions, including Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism and the Greek Pantheon, and was an ordained deacon in the Baptist Church. This diverse spiritual background has given him a unique insight into harnessing the divine energies found in cultural groups around the world. His formal education in anthropology helps balance his spiritual training with a scientific mindset.
From 2001 to 2008 Travis served as an intelligence specialist in the United States navy, using his powers of analysis and research to track terrorist groups and determine the military capabilities of foreign countries. After leaving the military, Travis entered the corporate world as a recruiter for the largest telephone psychic company in the world. As the most successful psychic recruiter in the industry, he pioneered a concrete process for discovering and authenticating individuals with intuitive powers that is still used to this day.
