Voyager Tarot

[Hanged Man] [10 of Wands] The Voyager Tarot was created in 1984 by artist Ken Knutson under the direction of James Wanless. Wanless builds on the traditional tarot, but he has made many changes to make his deck more proactive and relevant to the 21st Century. The cards are photo-collages that "include exquisite and ordinary artifacts of human and natural genius." The major arcana roughly follows the model of the Thoth Tarot. The suits are the wands, cups, crystals (swords) and worlds (pentacles). The court cards represent the Human Family: Man, Woman, Sage (grandparent), and Child. Wanless has developed the Voyager Tarot into a complete system for self-development, including seminars, certification and related tools. The Voyager Tarot is only available as a boxed set with Wanless's book, Voyager Tarot: Guidebook for the Journey (2nd edition- 1998 - 119 pages).
