I appreciate very much the approach Ian Daniels has taken with the Kith & Kin portrait. Leaving out the pure entertainment factor, he entwines your astrological influences with the cards in the deck and honestly, they have opened a much broader take on the kabbalistic and astrological influences through the vampyre mythology. I think this is an absolute must for anyone doing shadow work - or just wanting a deeper view into oneself.

Dynasty - the Lovers
Bloodline - Nine of Knives
Court - Lord of Knives

Moon Dynasty - Death
Moon Bloodline - Six of Grails

Rising Dynasty - Hermit
Rising Bloodline - Nine of Skulls


Hi I am hoping someone can help me with understanding the Ancestry, Bloodline and Descendency Cards.

Maybe its obvious but it wasn't clear in the book.

I get the Bloodline card but where abouts do the other 2 cards fit? Into this life, or your preceding life and your next life?
