TarotBot Android Tarot Reader

TarotBot is an open source framework for tarot readings on Android devices with switchable card decks and interpretations.

The interface, which re-presents tarot, was designed with the primary goal to only draw from the physical artifacts (the deck of cards) those attributes which are meaningful to the reading: imagery, interpretations, and context. The traditional shuffling, dealing, and arranging of the cards is removed from the process allowing a much more streamlined reading experience to emerge. The experience may lack some traditional elements but conducting readings for one’s self, especially on the go, is far from traditional.

While other tarot apps seek to replicate the experience of tarot cards TarotBot aims to evolve tarot into a new medium.
When tarot is most effective is when one uses intuition to interpret the cards, however interpretations are provided to help anyone unfamiliar with tarot. These are a synthesis of experience and research conducted during development.

Primary research sources include:

Tarot of the New Moon free

Liberus
Optimized for Honeycomb tablets and small screen devices

Maria Teresa Monti created the Tarocchi Della Luna Nuova (Tarot of the New Moon) between 1982 and 1983 using a combination of pencil, ink and tempera. Museo dei Tarocchi has published it in a gorgeous limited edition of only 300 numbered copies.

Monti's Tarot cards are beautiful, the colors vibrant, and the whole production was obviously made with great care. The imagery is based on traditional symbolism while also having a rather contemporary look and feel.

The Major Arcana and Court cards are rich in both color and meaning. The Pip cards are the traditional suit symbols (rather than scenery). They are not titled but instead the required number of symbols are depicted on the cards in appealing designs. The titles on the Majors and Court Cards are in Italian.

"Tarocchi di connessione" means "connection tarot" and enphasize the idea of "connecting" figures, symbols, meanings, events, thoughts, memories...that is inside TAROT, and also a peculiarity of visual language through images/pictures: putting together images and figures forming properly created to form a system of interactive meanings.

This is a personal interpretation of the 22 Major Arcana, with dreamy, symbolic, surreal, pagan, magical, mythical influences.

In loving memory of Jean-Claude Flornoy, thank you for bringing new life to the Tarot.

The Marseille tarot

It is generally known that the denomination "Marseille tarot" became mainstream in the 1930’s when Paul Marteau, in response to the increasingly popularity of Golden Dawn-based decks, decided to re-launch the French tarot by reprinting an old version of the Nicolas Conver deck, calling it the 'Veritable tarot de Marseille'. Marteau may have gotten the idea from the fact that three hundred years before, the city of Marseilles was the main port through which French tarot decks were exported to the rest of the world. It seemed appropriate, then, to baptize the French tradition as being 'from 'Marseille'. Or perhaps Marteau borrowed the term from Papus, who wrote in his book, 'le Tarot des bohémiens': "We hope that for this purpose you have procured the Tarot of Marseilles, the most correct in its symbolism". This was, indeed, the earliest known use of the term. That is how several decks sharing similar distinctive features but produced in various localities (the Jean Noblet tarot, for example, was printed in Paris in 1650, while the Jean Dodal was printed in Lyon in 1701) ended up consigned to the same label.

Think of the Marseille tradition as the champagne of tarots: a denomination that transcends its geographical origin to define a very unique kind of experience.

The Marseille is the most poetic of all tarots. Each card contains a hint from another card, in an endless game of visual resonances. Linked to la langue des oiseaux (the Language of The Birds), French folklore suggests that the Marseille tarot speaks directly to the eye in the subtle voice of its characters' gestures. The Marseille tarot borrows its language from the Romanesque cathedrals of France, from the chanting arms of medieval heraldry, and from the French people's love of puns and wordplay. The Marseille tarot hides its secrets in the obvious.

Tarotbot gives you the opportunity to experience the Marseille tarot, either through Jean Noblet's elegant design or through the rough shapes of Jean Dodal. Both have been restored, from the only original surviving decks kept in the British Museum and the Biblioteque Nationale of France, by master card-maker Jean-Claude Flornoy.

The theme of this deck series is great classics of literature, either contemporary or of the past. The goal of this project is to merge a recognizable element of literature to the traditional and symbolic meaning of a specific Tarot card image. This fusion comes from the esoteric value that in the distant past was connected to heraldry, whereas the image (called “the body”) was joined to a maxim or ‘motto’ (referred to as “the soul”), forming a commemorative “coat of arms”.
The project includes 5 decks, one for each continent. This collaborative deck by 22 artists from Oceania was hosted by Fern Mercier & Lyn Olds.

Steampunk TarotBot

Liberus
Optimized for Honeycomb tablets and small screen devices

includes the full text of Pictorial Key to the Steampunk Tarot by Charissa Drengsen

“Steampunk” (term coined by K. W. Jeter in a letter to Locus Magazine, in April 1987) is now a full-blown 21st Century subculture that embraces a vision of a futuristic, alternate-universe (perhaps post-apocalyptic) Victorian/Edwardian age featuring brass and copper steam-powered inventions that go far beyond 1800's technology. This world includes mechanical wonders such as gear-driven computers, modern dirigibles, modded clockwork, time machines and flying contraptions. Influenced by a range of literature from Jules Verne and H. G. Wells to Lemony Snicket and Alan Moore, steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk but tends to be less dystopian.

I do not pretend to be an authority on what is and what is not steampunk. Personally, I think anyone who pretends expertise is treading on dangerous ground. The steampunk subculture is an evolving entity, as open to definition and reinterpretation as slang, fashion and genre usually are. The images I created for this deck of tarot cards are merely my own personal vision, how steampunk speaks to me as an artist, where it intersects with myth and archetype. My wish and desire is that they will speak to you as well, opening a window onto another vista you may not have gazed upon before.


From where I stand, one of the important aspects of steampunk is the way it brings together the masculine and the feminine, the hard and the soft, yin and yang, east and west. As Jake von Slatt said, “the intersection of technology and romance.” It seems to lend itself quite well to the archetypes of the tarot, which seek to find that path at the balancing point of extremes. That place we find ourselves as a people, moving fast on a speeding locomotive toward an uncertain future.

Artist Charissa Drengsen of curly-cue design has been working as a freelance artist, designer and writer since 1989. She graduated from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco in 1999 with a BA in Integral Studies, after which she pursued an MFA in Transformative Arts at John F Kennedy University in Berkeley. Her work is influenced by post-modernism, theoretical quantum physics, vintage sensibilities, 21st Century sub-cultures, and a fascination with dystopia and decline of civilization.

Charissa has had her hands in many pies over the past several years, including: pin up photography, upcycled fashion, scenic painting for theatre, murals, mixed media fine art & assemblage, jewelry making, pop art, documenting decay, teaching, vintage photo restoration, soft sculpture, and playing with paper dolls. She makes her home in that hobo town Petaluma, California with her fiesty teenage daughter and a passle of quirky cats. The walls of her room are painted burnt orange.

22 Masonic Arcana
Interpreted freely

The twenty-two Arcana Masonic are impressive figures that contain metaphorical answers, rich in meaning and allegorical symbols. They are archetypes of the collective unconscious, and they often use multiple elements present also in other esoteric disciplines. These twenty-two figures created by Osvaldo Menegazzi illustrate and describe the evolutionary path of the initiate, and can be precious for each person who can draw from them inner enrichment for meditation and reflection and also a tool for the foretelling of future events.

0 - The Fool
This card without a number, beginning and end of all things, symbolizes the initiate in transition from the preparation room, with his eyes blindfolded, on his way towards the choice of silence, in an inexplicable and infinite state of consciousness beyond which he is not allowed to proceed.

The Fool is the card of the event and advises to take reality into account in order to decide and act in every direction.

1 - The Magician
The card of the illuminated apprentice is fitted out with the means to shape the personality of the Magician, who with square and compasses, mallet and chisel, will become a great wizard in order to be able to realize deeds which are impossible for humans: he fights for freedom, equality and brotherhood.

The Magician is the card of action, and the moment is favorable for undertaking new enterprises.

2 - The High Priestess
The High Priestess card, just like the big pomegranate depicted on it, is the mother of the multiplicity, the holder of the secret, closed to outsiders and comprehensible only to initiates. A feminine symbol of freedom and progress, of understanding, insight and wisdom when granting protection and advice.

The High Priestess calls for careful reflection that will lead to prestige, insight and progress.

3 - The Empress
The Empress, with her great qualities of intuition, intelligence, fertility of ideas and in the full energy of her youth, will be able to forge with mallet, square, chisel and raw stone, laid flat on the black and white floor of good and evil, any desire or design, be it intellectual, material or of love.

The Empress card suggests to follow one´s intuition and enthusiasm, and to enjoy the pleasures of life.

4 - The Emperor
In the card of the Emperor stands a big sun, in which a large the triangle of perfection dominates, with the divine eye of the Great Architect of the Universe, creative principle, superior strength and determination. All of this signifying willpower, authority, knowledge, virility, fascination.

The card of the Emperor offers certainty and stability in the enterprises of life, even the most difficult ones.

5 - The Pope
Protection and confidentiality arrive from the card of the Pope, represented by an emblem of charity: the pelican which feeds its children with its own blood. This means dedication to others, to love and to direct with wisdom and skill family situations, both psychological and economic.

The card of the Pope to advises to rely with confidence on experienced and capable individuals who can provide protection.

In loving memory of Jean-Claude Flornoy, thank you for bringing new life to the Tarot.

The Marseille tarot

It is generally known that the denomination "Marseille tarot" became mainstream in the 1930’s when Paul Marteau, in response to the increasingly popularity of Golden Dawn-based decks, decided to re-launch the French tarot by reprinting an old version of the Nicolas Conver deck, calling it the 'Veritable tarot de Marseille'. Marteau may have gotten the idea from the fact that three hundred years before, the city of Marseilles was the main port through which French tarot decks were exported to the rest of the world. It seemed appropriate, then, to baptize the French tradition as being 'from 'Marseille'. Or perhaps Marteau borrowed the term from Papus, who wrote in his book, 'le Tarot des bohémiens': "We hope that for this purpose you have procured the Tarot of Marseilles, the most correct in its symbolism". This was, indeed, the earliest known use of the term. That is how several decks sharing similar distinctive features but produced in various localities (the Jean Noblet tarot, for example, was printed in Paris in 1650, while the Jean Dodal was printed in Lyon in 1701) ended up consigned to the same label.

Think of the Marseille tradition as the champagne of tarots: a denomination that transcends its geographical origin to define a very unique kind of experience.

The Marseille is the most poetic of all tarots. Each card contains a hint from another card, in an endless game of visual resonances. Linked to la langue des oiseaux (the Language of The Birds), French folklore suggests that the Marseille tarot speaks directly to the eye in the subtle voice of its characters' gestures. The Marseille tarot borrows its language from the Romanesque cathedrals of France, from the chanting arms of medieval heraldry, and from the French people's love of puns and wordplay. The Marseille tarot hides its secrets in the obvious.

Tarotbot gives you the opportunity to experience the Marseille tarot, either through Jean Noblet's elegant design or through the rough shapes of Jean Dodal. Both have been restored, from the only original surviving decks kept in the British Museum and the Biblioteque Nationale of France, by master card-maker Jean-Claude Flornoy.

TarotBot Android Tarot Reader

TarotBot is an open source framework for tarot readings on Android devices with switchable card decks and interpretations.

The interface, which re-presents tarot, was designed with the primary goal to only draw from the physical artifacts (the deck of cards) those attributes which are meaningful to the reading: imagery, interpretations, and context. The traditional shuffling, dealing, and arranging of the cards is removed from the process allowing a much more streamlined reading experience to emerge. The experience may lack some traditional elements but conducting readings for one’s self, especially on the go, is far from traditional.

While other tarot apps seek to replicate the experience of tarot cards TarotBot aims to evolve tarot into a new medium.
When tarot is most effective is when one uses intuition to interpret the cards, however interpretations are provided to help anyone unfamiliar with tarot. These are a synthesis of experience and research conducted during development.

Primary research sources include:

The Oracle of the Tarot by Paul Foster Case

Tarot Plain and Simple by Anthony Louis

Tarot of Connections

Liberus
Optimized for Honeycomb tablets and small screen devices

This Tarot trumps project was originally published with Museo dei Tarocchi (Italian museum and tarot publisher) in a limited edition 500 copies.

"Tarocchi di connessione" means "connection tarot" and enphasize the idea of "connecting" figures, symbols, meanings, events, thoughts, memories...that is inside TAROT, and also a peculiarity of visual language through images/pictures: putting together images and figures forming properly created to form a system of interactive meanings.

This is a personal interpretation of the 22 Major Arcana, with dreamy, symbolic, surreal, pagan, magical, mythical influences.

Tarot of the New Moon

Liberus
Optimized for Honeycomb tablets and small screen devices

Maria Teresa Monti created the Tarocchi Della Luna Nuova (Tarot of the New Moon) between 1982 and 1983 using a combination of pencil, ink and tempera. Museo dei Tarocchi has published it in a gorgeous limited edition of only 300 numbered copies.

Monti's Tarot cards are beautiful, the colors vibrant, and the whole production was obviously made with great care. The imagery is based on traditional symbolism while also having a rather contemporary look and feel.

The Major Arcana and Court cards are rich in both color and meaning. The Pip cards are the traditional suit symbols (rather than scenery). They are not titled but instead the required number of symbols are depicted on the cards in appealing designs. The titles on the Majors and Court Cards are in Italian.
