LILIFER is the first tarot published by Little Darkness. It was inspired by early tarot decks, the occult tradition and my own magickal practice. It features 22 major arcanes, 56 minor arcanes and comes with a booklet of card meanings and tables of correspondences.
The structure of LILIFER borrows from the Tarot de Marseille, therefore Justice is the 8th card while Strength is the 11th card. This choice is a tribute to Marion's French heritage, although you may refer to another system of interpretation if so inclined.
Because Marion is also fond of the Waite-Smith tarot, you will notice that the pip cards are evocative and seem to tell a story, rather than relying solely on esoteric numerology.
Lilifer is a free-flowing deck with a unique voice. It takes root in various forms of the tarot and isn't attached to a specific school of thought.
Kings & Queens: In Lilifer, the Queen sits atop of each suit. This choice symbolizes a needed departure from the patriarchal organisation of our society and is meant to invite a return to balance. You will notice that King and Queen resemble one another: just because the Queen sits on top doesn't mean she's superior, or that her power is greater. It's a loving agreement between them two.
