Tarot deck created by Michael Bridge Dickson in 2015. It
is a colorful deck that incorporates circles as its
main theme. Circles, magical and colorful circles, that
interact together to form geometric structures and patterns
in an endless rhythmic conscious dance.
tarot includes the meaning of the four elements showing
the relationships and the connections between them as
we find them in the real life and in nature. The
wonderful colors used in this deck associate and represent
the 4 elements: gold for air, red for fire, blue for
water and green for earth. The Major Arcana is a result
of the elemental combinations in a wonderful black
background, while the Minor Arcana show its elemental
correspondence in a bright white background. The court cards are
depicted with their rank according to their element in a
background of their suit. To give an example the Knight of
Cups (Knight of Water) is a red orb on a blue
background, which shows that the knights are associated with
fire while the blue represents the water. The result is
fire in water and this is the system in which the court
cards are formed.
The Major Arcana is formed from the
colored orbs that mix together to form structurally
harmonic images that follow the rules of numerology. Each
card shows an image of orbs according to the number of
the card. For example the Hermit card depicts a
structure made from nine orbs that depicts the Hermits
star. We can see that the cards develop though they are
independent on their own too.
From Ace to Tens the Minors are
evolving from one elemental orb to more complex structures
that correspond to our universe. The color of each orb
is related to its element and so the swords are gold
spheres and the cups are blue. The minors are following
the same pattern and are differentiated by their
This leads to an elaborate mirror that reflects our
consciousness through rhythmic patterns. It is a deck that is
based on the geometric structure of our universe,
excellent for those who love sacred geometry. The symmetry
of the forms creates a perfect tool for
self-reflection and meditation. This symmetry is present in a
reading revealing with its evocative images the evolution
of a situation and the development of the person.
The deck is a combination of simplicity that follows
the ways of nature and that is reduced to its essence.
The Orbifold Tarot is the essence of the meaning of
tarot, it is the number and the element that creates the
card making it easy for everyone to connect with it and
see the forces that run through a reading. It is
highly influenced from the Tarot de Marseille not only
because of the common system for the minors but also for
its abstractness and its simplicity.
that the deck has this specific theme allows it to be a
multi-use tool for our spiritual life. It is excellent for
meditation thanks to its symmetric mandalas and its ability
to reflect ones consciousness. I personally used
this deck in my magick workings. It was an amazing
experience! The elements, the numbers, the colors allow me to
work in a practical way everywhere just with a deck of
cards! I performed a ritual circle using the cards for
the elements and to state my intentions. The
simplicity of the deck made it really an interesting
The way in which the deck is created, without the
traditional images of tarot makes it an excellent reading tool
for professionals since it calms the calm and it
doesnt disturb the clients psychology with the
frightening images of other decks.
The Orbifold tarot is a
new futuristic deck that combines natural simplicity
with the complex meanings of tarot in a way that
changes the traditional history of tarot and lifting it
into higher levels!
