Russell Grant Astro-Tarot Cards

Russell Grant is a British astrologer, television personality, and author known for his work in the field of astrology. Russell Grant's Astrology Club Tarot was published in 1999 in connection with Russell's live telephone readings service. Only the 22 traditional major trump cards were published in this edition, but a 64-card version had been published in 1998 by Virgin Publishing which included additional astrological cards. A book about the cards was also published by David Westnedge Ltd in 1992, and Virgin Publishing in 1998. The illustrations are by Kay Smith. Although Tarot has its origins in Medieval times, the themes and symbols are still relevant to our modern lives. Many people find they can quickly realise and develop an affinity with symbolic images in the deck. Visit Russell Grant's Tarot & Psychic webpages.
