The Senet Tarot

Oracle Deck of Ancient Egypt

 

Dr. White has discovered the origins of the Tarot in ancient Egypt.  The 22 Trumps plus the beginnings of the court cards evolved from a game that symbolized the essence of Egyptian culture and became a tool for divination.  Through the ancient archetypes one could tap into the deep layers of the mind and uncover hidden beliefs or contradictions that were causing confusion or difficulties in life.  Although the Egyptians did not yet number the cards, they eventually expanded the body of archetypes to include profound symbols that were used as amulets.  A set of 78 became one of the special systems in use during the New Kingdom.  Although the pip cards were not yet organized according to suits in ancient Egypt, Dr. White has identified the primary archetypes and, with the artistic talents of Taiwanese painter Amy Hsiao, has organized the images into a deck that fits our modern standard Tarot pack.   Above are a few images from the deck.  Cards are the size of a standard Rider-Waite Tarot deck. The deck includes 80 cards -- the 78 standard cards, a "cover" card, and the Min-Mut Divine Lovers from the Temple of Luxor (top row middle card in the above sample illustration).    The standard cards are labeled in English and Chinese so they can be used in Asian and Western countries.    If you would like to order the Senet Tarot Oracle Deck, go to the website STORE.

Part III: User Handbook -- How to Use the 78 Higher Self Avatars 

Part IV: The Hieroglyphic Text (Only at Scribd Store and this Website Store) 

This is the earliest known book that lists the entire set of 78 cards that make up a traditional Tarot Deck and provides primitive Egyptian illustrations of each card plus a brief description of each card.  The Egyptians developed the "Litany" during the New Kingdom (dynasties 18-20) and some of the greatest pharaohs of that period, such as Tutmoses III, Seti I, and Rameses II, had the text transcribed onto their tomb or temple walls.    This remarkable little book introduces the 78 major Avatars of the Higher Self, explains how to use the set of Avatars and some of the benefits to be obtained by proper use of these Archetypes.  This is the earliest book specifically dedicated to the Tarot as a coherent system of personal development.   We meet here some of the earliest titles of the cards and a description of a profound system of meditation practiced in ancient Egypt.   The Tarot was (is) not just a game and an oracle.   It was (and still is) an amazing tool on the path to enlightenment.  See Dr. White's SENET TAROT OF ANCIENT EGYPT listed under Tarot in the Esoterica section and THOTH AND THE TAROT: THE AMAZING SECRETS.  Further details and how to purchase a deck are provided in the

KEMETIC CALENDAR

*** A PERPETUAL KEMETIC [EGYPTIAN] SOLAR-LUNAR CALENDAR.  This is a demonstration of how we can use the Ancient Egyptian Senet Tarot Archetypes of the Neters and their Amulets to create a Perpetual Kemetic (Egyptian) Solar Lunar Calendar for the Planet.  Here is a fun way to learn about Ancient Egypt on a daily hands-on basis.  It is also worthy of study for all who practice Kemetic Traditions (the culture of Ancient Egypt) as a part of their lifestyle.   Updated, July, 2010 and January 2011, adjusting the Egyptian Perpetual Solar Calendar to align with the Perpetual 13-Moon Calendar developed by Jose and Lloydine Arguelles based on study of the Mayan Calendar.  Both systems always start a new year on July 26.   This allows Solar Month 12 to begin on the Summer Solstice and Solar Month 6 to begin right between Winter Solstice and Christmas.  See also Mantras and Yantras of Ancient Egypt listed above.    Below are components of the Kemetic Calendar excerpted from the article.
