Дорогие друзья Таро,
В 2003 — 2008 годы Я посвятила себя теме Таро.
Я моделировала каждую карту в соответствии с числовой системой каббалы и приняла во внимание значение рун, карт ангелов, силы животных и символику цвета. Результатами этих 5 летних исследований являются 80 художественных произведений, написанных маслом на холсте.
Моей целью было и остается насколько это возможно, наполнение людьми положительной энергией этих карт, художественно воспроизведенных. Я нарисовала каждую из них с большой любовью и терпением, которые должны увлечь зрителя в необычайный мир фантазии, полный позитивных вибраций.
Желаю Вам радостных и счастливых моментов!
Ваша Петра Рейтер / ПетраК

Петрак Таро — великолепно окрашенное в мягкие взаимопроникающие цвета австрийской художницы Петры Райтер. Оно издается Paitnik. Интересны некоторые творческие идеи, которых мы раньше не видели. Повешенный, например, показан вниз головой в виде куколки, свисающей с дерева, так же, как куколка будущей бабочки. Не просто найти это Таро, но вы можете найти у Roderick Somerville. Петра Райтер имеет веб-сайт www.petrak.at , где вы можете увидеть некоторые из ее картин. (описание www.alchemywebsite.com от 6 July 2010)
После пяти лет упорной творческой работы австрийской художницы мир увидела колода Petrak Tarot — 80 художественных произведений (78 карт + 1 дополнительная + рубашка), выполненных маслом на холсте.
Стиль иллюстраций неоднозначен: это смесь импрессионизма с элементами кубизма. Некоторые тарологи отмечают, что иллюстрации не лишены сюрреалистических ноток. Цветовое решение близко к работам Николая Рериха… магазин Тароман

queen of discs
The purple whirl in the background allegorises an exhausting past. Now the Queen is taking a rest in a green oasis, underneath an olive tree, which symbolizes the energy she needs now.

7 seven of swords
The Sword in the middle represents the desired goal. However, it is irritated on its way by the other Swords, and inhibited in its strength of purpose. It becomes a balancing act to find the centre. Only when all doubts are eliminated can the point of the Sword (you) find its way to the opening.

The rose is a delicate and vulnerable flower; however, its thorns make it capable of causing injuries and pain. In case of injuries, reach consciously down to the roots of pain and seep them through with love and forgiveness. The outer Swords stand for the liberating and resolving state of heart and mind you will experience once the transformation has taken place.
10 ten of swords
We have reached the limit; the falling Swords fall into nothingness. Loss of control and apparent forlornness rule the situation. It is the fall into the abyss – one Sword only, representing our instinct of self-preservation, keeps us up. Only insight, change of priorities and comprehension can lead us to new joy in life. The Swords’ point symbolically cuts through the dark spheres and pushes upwards to reach higher levels.

Playfully and light the three Wands sprout from the core of our being. Like curious children they stretch their heads towards the skies. Joyfully and full of expectation they spread their refreshing energy.
4 four of wands
Unification of the rings and creation of new life; fusion of the elements – Air – Earth – Fire – Water, represented by their respective colours. The four purple chambers symbolize cleavage. The outer ring allegorizes perfection and the symbiosis of energies.
5 five of wands
The four Wands in the foreground seem to be dowels put in our way.
The way leads in sinuous lines from one blockade to another. The fifth Wand represents our centre, because only when we find our inner balance can the positive energy be set free. Only then will our strife lead to success.
6 six of wands
Enlightenment, invincible strength and the consequent feelings of contentment and harmony reflect in this picture. The differently adorned ends of the Wands stand for the different types of victories we can achieve. Also small steps forward can be a victory.
7 seven of wands
The central Wand stands bravely and courageously in the foreground. It has unfolded its fan in order to ingrain itself and its point of view. It demonstrates readiness to fight for rights and limits.
8 eight of wands
Like a flower the plant of Wands opens up. The farina emanates out and symbolises openness and honest readiness for communication.

The outer Wands resemble extinguished matches. In vain they burn up and die down at the surface of the energy-loaded ball of fire. The Wand in the centre demonstrates that only conscious and direct confrontation with darkness, pain and fear can make us break through to our inner source of strength.
10 ten of wands
It is a question of perspective: Heavy iron bars or thin wooden sticks? Are you inside or outside? Are they insuperable or breakable? The solution lies within us. Like a game of jackstraws you can win this game too!
