The Voyager Tarot deck was created in 1985 by James Wanless, symbolist, and artist Ken Knutson. This tarot deck and the Tao Oracle are my first choices for divination, reflection, and use of the active imagination via images. This book includes many references to concepts and phrases from the I Ching.
