The Flowers Featured in The LIBER FLORUM Tarot

What does Liber Florum mean? It means Book of Flowers in Latin. The LIBER FLORUM Tarot is a vibrant rendition of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck with the addition of corresponding symbolic, magical and medicinal flowers.

The flowers attributed to the cards in this deck are drawn mostly from attributions that were compiled by the founding members of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and were intended to be shared only with initiated members of that order. After Aleister Crowley left the Golden Dawn he published the formerly “secret” documents and made them available to the public in his book Liber 777.

The Major Arcana are based directly on the original Golden Dawn correspondences, while the Minor Arcana are drawn from the flowers that correlate to the Sephiroth on the Tree of Life. Each Sephirah corresponds to a number from 1 to 10. We matched the flower assigned to the particular Sephirah number to the number of the Minor Arcana card. For example, the 3 of Swords is the cypress flower, which is the flower that corresponds to the third Sephirah, Binah. The Page, Knight, Queen and King have been assigned to other magical, medicinal or symbolic flowers.
