I just love sharing wonderful tarot decks with you. For example, here were seven brilliant new decks I rounded up last January.
And here are six more!
Another gorgeous deck from Rebecca Schoenecker, creator of the Laughing Eye, Weeping Eye tarot.
The decks’ creator worked hard to tame the wild, mystical Unicorn. It wasn’t easy. The Unicorns were shy and sometimes they had difficulty concentrating. But through their friendship, the Unicorns began to share their secrets. Rebecca came to know these 5 Unicorns, who agreed to work with her, granted they get some recognition.
I very nearly bought this deck a few weeks back…but decided instead to go for the Earthbound Oracle as I’ve been experimenting more with oracle decks lately. The Wooden Tarot is certainly on my wish-list, though.
My but this is lovely. A tarot and oracle together in one mega deck, what a great idea! Published by the Light Grey Art Lab, who created the Light Grey Tarot – available this October.
“Since I was a little girl I have had two loves; the occult and vintage oddities. As time went on I knew I wanted to have a deck to read that combined those two things. When I could not find one, the Antique Anatomy Tarot was born. I have carefully cleaned and restored antique medical imagery while preserving the vintage texture and look and combined them with classic elements of the Tarot to create something that I feel is truly special.”
Don’t hate me, but this one is actually sold out right now, after a phenomenally successful crowdfunded first edition. But it will be published next year by Llewelyn, so if you love these cards, you can grab a deck then.
The David Bowie Tarot (Kickstarter)
“The major arcana inclues imagery from all different personas of Bowie, including film personas like Jareth from Labyrinth and Thomas Jerome Newton from The Man Who Fell to Earth. The minor arcana each foccus on a different time or era of Bowie. The Cups, which symbolize emotions and love, are young beginning Bowie from his start until 1971 when Hunky Dory was released. The wands symbolize creativity and will, which will be represented by the Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane eras. The coins are symbolizing material body and belongings, showing Bowie’s Thin White Duke era which is around 1975 and 1976. The final suit, the swords which stands for reason, will be shown by modern Bowie.”
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
