Enchanting Divination for Card Readers

2023 is your year to learn to read the cards! Check out the exciting decks that 2022 manifested – plus a graphic biography of Pamela Colman Smith, the artist behind the original Rider-Waite-Smith deck, and a guided journal to record your tarot journey.

Pamela Colman Smith, the visionary artist who illustrated the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, has been forgotten for far too long. Now, artist and author Cat Willett illustrates the life of this incredible woman, from London to Jamaica to New York, in her graphic novel The Queen of Wands: The Story of Pamela Colman Smith, the Artist Behind the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck.

For those looking for fresh approaches to the traditional tarot, we’re offering two modern takes on the cards, created by members of two different underrepresented communities. Black Tarot from social justice activist and griot Nyasha Williams features exclusively Black figures and icons to help you awaken Ancestral ties and connect to the divine. The companion Ancestral Illumination journal is filled with tarot advice, journal prompts, and plenty of writing space to chart your journey – plus, four sticker sheets enhance your unique path. Queer Tarot from queer and trans artist team Ash + Chess showcases a wide range of gender expressions and sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, sizes, and abilities – each card is based on a real member of the LGBTQ+ community.

For those who get their inspiration from oracle decks, we’re offering two unique decks. Use Mystic Mondays: The Cosmic Creatures Deck from Mystic Mondays founder Grace Duong to learn how 66 creatures of the land, sea, and sky can aid you on your journey, from astrological correspondences to intention-setting and more. When you find yourself facing tough questions and in need of new ways of thinking, the Resilience Alchemy deck from celebrated cut-paper artist Maude White is here to provide you with a toolset of ideas, from Sisters to Remedies to Gifts, to rearrange and rethink whatever is blocking your path.
