About the Magical Realism Tarot deck:
Magical Realism is a genre of art or literature that incorporates fantastic or mythical elements into an otherwise realistic setting. The style of the scenic illustrations on the cards is the inspiration for the name of the deck. The interpretation of each card in the Magical Realism Tarot honors the traditional meaning ascribed to the cards, but emphasizes a more modern, psychological point of view that encourages self-empowerment and creative thinking. Fantasy, myth, and the unseen are part of our everyday lives and those perceptions have a bearing on our understanding of life. When using these cards, we combine both the “real” and the “magical” to better understand ourselves and our world.
