An Overview of the Splendor Solis Tarot Cards
The Major Arcana cards are known as the Artisans, comprising the original 22 Splendor Solis illuminations as the inner alchemies of the traditional Tarot cards. The Artisans reveal their transformative and creative powers, weaving the worlds along the pathways of the Tree of Life.
The Minor Arcana of the Splendor Solis Tarot include the Ambassadors, numbered from Ace to Ten, and the Awakeners who bring us the inner alchemies of the traditional court cards.
These cards are works in progress, and the representations here illustrate initial ideas and draft renderings of what will become much more refined and complete as the work moves rapidly towards publication late 2019.
The Minor Arcana four suits are named after the four traditional Elements and aligned with the four worlds of Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body. Their traditional colours have been magically made by visionary artist and Tarot specialist Debbie Bacci, who mixed the paints with the Dews of May…The alchemical transformation of the Elements is expressed in their names of Golden Earth, Sparkling Air, Starry Water and Living Fire.
The Awakeners, as priests and priestesses of the Elements, assist the apprentice alchemist to awaken aspects of body, mind, soul and spirit into greater awareness.
“Debbie’s readings are transformative experiences, mini-journeys in our soul where the space is filled with respect, empathy and amazing insight.” ~ Stefania, London
“Marie’s clear teaching of the Splendor Solis on the Master of Arts course at Chichester University facilitated a different way of seeing and being in my world. The marriage of the Splendor Solis and the tarot is an alchemical consummation of wisdom that is truly fascinating and so accessible. A new journey.” ~ Lesley ~ SRN, BSc Psychology, Post grad dip Counselling Psychology, MA Transpersonal Arts & Practice, Diploma in Art & Design.
“Debbie’s profound knowledge of her cards and their meaning is second to none. I’ve had a few Tarot readings before but Debbie’s does stand out in that there was no confusion in the answers to my question and no doubt that the cards really reflected my present and past situation. I highly recommend a reading with Debbie as she combines a finely tuned intuition with a crystal clear yet calm delivery of the answers one seeks.” ~ Ariane, Leicester
“It is nearly thirty years since finding three of these unique and remarkable Splendor Solis images at the Warburg Institute, while researching my dissertation on Neoplatonic thought and Elizabethan drama. To find that Marie Angelo has woven together the complete suite of images, to create a work facilitating a near-infinite number of exploratory inner journeys, feels like finding a long-lost, precious treasure. Marie’s depth of knowledge and her utmost care with the originals are wonderful and exciting.” ~ Michael Pailthorpe
Marie Angelo, author… I’m an independent scholar, combining psychology degrees and diplomas (the eternal student!) with my long-term inner truth as student and teacher of the Western Mystery tradition. Along the way I’ve been a college teacher, researcher, counsellor, academic (and a carer for loved ones). I’ve published on Archetypal and Jungian Psychology, but things got exciting when I ran a master’s degree in Transpersonal Arts & Practice in which the Splendor Solis illuminations were the honoured guests…
Debbie Bacci, publisher… I grew up in Florence, surrounded by inspirational Renaissance art. I recognized a language that speaks directly to the Soul, and discovered the magic that is hidden within the Tarot. My love of art and visionary painting led me to work as an artist, student and teacher. I am also a counsellor, life coach and mentor. I have been reading Tarot for over 25 years, and now I am developing a unique publishing company, Alchimia, creating inspirational quality books and artefacts.
