78 Tarot Nautical: Tarot of the Water

80-card oceanic Tarot deck (out of print) by the 78 Tarot Project, 2015

This was my first Tarot deck and is still the one I use most often. The large card size allows the jewel-toned oceanic artwork to shine. The 78 Tarot Project (Etsy), led by Kayti Welsh, produces a themed, diverse Tarot deck each year, with each artist contributing a one-card masterpiece. Visit 78 Tarot for free downloadable spreads by Trish Sullivan, more beautiful decks, and Tarot cloths.

The 78 Tarot Nautical Kickstarter and the sold out Etsy listing have the best images of the cards. Their 7th and newest deck, the 78 Tarot Ecological, will be available for pre-order in Spring 2021.

Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot

78-card vintage-style Tarot deck by Tina Gong of Labyrinthos Academy, 2019

Arcana Iris Sacra translates roughly to “Mysteries of the Sacred Rainbow”, according to the creator. This Tarot deck is modeled after the Golden Dawn tradition, rather than the more widely-known Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot style. The symbolism draws from astrology, the Kabbalah, and the Book of Thoth. I received this deck as a gift after expressing an interest in deepening my Tarot knowledge. See the Arcana Lenormand and Claves Astrologicae companion decks below. The corresponding Tarot cloth (1st photo on the L below) will be used.


Book of Azathoth Tarot Cards

78-card Lovecraft Tarot deck by Nemo’s Locker, 2013

“The Azathoth Tarot is Nemo’s Locker’s homage to the great HP Lovecraft and is intended to be a deck that might have existed in the Lovecraftian universe. Detailed pen and ink drawings depicting Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, Deep Ones, devils, and other beings create this full 78 card Tarot deck.” Azathoth is a deity from Lovecraft’s Cthulu pantheon. This deck is sold out on the creator’s website but available on Amazon.


Everyday Tarot

78-card Tarot deck from Biddy Tarot

Tarot teacher and author Brigit Esselmont and illustrator Eleanor Grosch created a deck that is both modern (think clean lines and a simple color palette) and traditional. The small size, lovely illustrations, and simple images make the Everyday Tarot an easy favorite for readings on the go. Check out the Biddy Tarot post introducing both this deck and the Everyday Tarot book. See the cards here (scroll down on the linked page).


Stephanie Dreams offered interesting insights and information, and was very friendly, helpful, prompt, and knowledgeable

Interesting Insights

My Tarot birth cards reflect quite well my inner self. Your Tarot reading gave me strong hope. Thank you for being encouraging.

Penny Dreadful Tarot Cards: The Tarot of Vanessa Ives

78-card Tarot deck based on the Showtime series, 2014

I received this deck as a gift since I enjoyed the Showtime series “Penny Dreadful”. It appears similar to the Tarot deck used by Vanessa Ives in the show, complete with gruesome, creepy imagery. The simple line-drawing artwork is repeated across the numbered cards of each suit, as with Marseille-type decks. With thin card stock, the Penny Dreadful Tarot Cards are more a novelty or “art deck” than for daily readings. Showtime no longer links to this deck.


Stephanie’s reading answered all of my questions. Her answers were straight to the point. Very thorough!

Very Thorough

Your Tarot reading was very inspiring for me. I love how it was positive and had a focus on advising. That makes it much more helpful.

Very inspiring

Starchild Tarot

78-card mystical Tarot deck by Danielle Noel, 1st edition reprint, Rose Portal Box, 2012, reprinted w/ new box design in 2020 (out of stock Nov 2020)

This deck features “shimmering dreamscapes and psychedelic windows…blended with soft, photographic filters and textures” with gilded edges. While the satin matte finish has a nice feel, the cards are a bit difficult to shuffle. Pentacles are represented as Crystals. This deck was first printed with a turquoise box in 2012, then recently reprinted with both the classic turquoise and this new Rose Portal box from an earlier drafted design–both contain the same cards and guidebook.

Danielle Noel wrote the 2018 Book of Tarot: A Guide for Modern Mystics. Noel illustrated the Work Your Light and Starseed Oracle decks, written by Rebecca Campbell. Campbell is the author of Light is the New Black: A Guide to Answering Your Soul’s Callings and Rise Sister Rise: A Guide to Unleashing the Wise, Wild Woman Within.

Thoth Tarot: The Book of Thoth

78-card art deco style Tarot deck by Aleister Crowley and Lady Freida Harris, originally published in 1969, Large edition

Creator Aleister Crowley and illustrator Lady Freida Harris worked together on this deck, also known as the Book of Thoth, from 1938-1943. It was completed and published in 1969 after their deaths. This deck relies heavily on Egyptian and astrological symbols. Each card has a Hebrew letter and an astrological sign, element, or planet. Crowley published a companion book by the same name in 1944.


Vagabond Wild Tarot

78-card Tarot deck by Tiffany Sosa of Boho and Indie Wild, 1st edition (out of print)

The simple abstract backgrounds allow me to focus on the main image in each card. This is my 2nd deck from Boho and Indie Wild, another vibrantly-colored deck with fantastic holographic edges.

The 2nd edition is available for purchase. Check out the Boho and Indie Wild Etsy Shop for readings and creator Tiffany’s other beautiful decks.


Wild Messengers Alchemical Tarot

80-card animal Tarot deck by Lola Pickett and Tanya Casteel, 1st edition, 2019 (out of stock Nov 2020)

This fantastic deck includes “78 wild animals, two mystical creatures, and one mantra card ready to share their wisdom and messages during your readings.” The anti-scratch matte cards are printed with cosmic watercolor-style shimmering animals. The card names are non-gendered, with Queens as Teachers and Kings as Masters. The box and 368-page guidebook have a holographic rainbow wrap. A 2021 second edition is planned.


Wild Unknown Tarot

78-card Tarot deck drawn in a pen-and-ink sketch style by Kim Krans, 2018

Much of this deck is drawn in black ink with occasional pops of color. The Wild Unknown Tarot features illustrations that are anything but traditional. The feel of the deck is more serious, more pointed than the 78 Tarot Nautical (above). I highly recommend that you spring for the set if you’re interested in this deck–the Guidebook is beautifully handwritten and is what truly drew me to the Wild Unknown Tarot. Kim’s book adds a simple yet profound perspective to the card meanings.

Lenormand Decks

Bohemian Wild Lenormand

36-card traditional Lenormand deck in a whimsical cosmic style by Tiffany Sosa of Boho & Indie Wild, 2nd edition (out of print), 2017

The Bohemian Wild Lenormand 2nd edition was my very first Lenormand deck and also my first deck by creator Tiffany Sosa. I found the Guidebook ever so helpful, including the keywords and general information. I love the gilded edges and vibrant jewel colors of this deck.

The 3rd edition is available for purchase. Check out the Boho and Indie Wild Etsy Shop for readings and other beautiful decks by Tiffany Sosa.


Seventh Sphere Lenormand

36-card Lenormand deck by Tina Gong of Labyrinthos Academy, 2017

This modern Lenormand deck has clean lines on smooth card stock made from recycled plastic. While the feel of the cards is different, it is pleasant. This was my first deck from Labyrinthos. One of the ways Lenormand differs from Tarot is that only the main symbol or illustration on the card is important. This deck successfully focuses your attention on the main illustration. Lenormand cards are read in pairs or strings (multiple cards that form a sort of sentence). See more card images, along with Lenormand combination meanings.


Arcana Lenormand de Iris Sacra

36-card vintage-style Lenormand deck by Tina Gong of Labyrinthos Academy, 2020

Arcana Lenormand Iris Sacra translates roughly to “Lenormand Mysteries of the Sacred Rainbow”, according to the creator. This retro Lenormand deck includes symbolism from the Golden Dawn tradition, astrology, and the Book of Thoth. For me, the small card size adds to the vintage charm, along with the muted colors and stylized art. This is a perfect companion deck to the Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot and the Claves Astrologicae Astrology Oracle decks. Your reading will be done with the corresponding Tarot cloth (1st & 3rd photos below).

I feel like you are “spot on” regarding my reading. I like that you gave me guidance on what to do as well as what to expect.

“Spot On”

The reading was very detailed and you gave me a lot of helpful and important information. I really appreciate it.

A Lot of Helpful, Important Information

Oracle Decks

Akashic Oracle Deck

48-card watercolor oracle deck by Mel Shapcott, 2017

The Akashic Oracle deck serves as a single-card oracle, created in an art-therapy style. Rather than shuffling, cards from this deck are intended to be chosen by the artwork on the back of the card. These compassionate, encouraging messages are often a great addition to any reading on a difficult subject.


Awakened Soul Oracle Deck

50-card oracle deck by Ethony* Dawn, 2016 and reprinted in 2020

This inclusive, vibrantly-colored deck is “for people who want to see and connect with imagery that resonates with their life”. The rich colors and interesting detail draw me in, while the Guide Book adds layers of meaning to each card. See Ethony*’s Full Walkthrough video. Ethony* is the author of Your Tarot Court: Read Any Deck with Confidence and the creator of Money Magic Manifestation Cards and the Muses of Tarot Oracle deck.


Claves Astrologicae de Iris Sacra, Astrology Oracle Deck

41-card astrology oracle deck by Tina Gong of Labyrinthos Academy, 2019

According to creator Tina Gong, “Claves Astrologicae de Iris Sacra” roughly translates from Latin as “Astrological Keys of the Sacred Rainbow”. It includes the astrological planets (plus Earth), the signs and houses, moon phases, and eclipses. I use the Claves Astrologicae primarily as a reference and study aid, as much of the Tarot symbolism draws from astrology. For me, the small card size adds to the vintage charm, along with the muted colors and stylized art. This is a companion deck to the Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot above.



[The Tarot reading is] in sync with my frame of mind and reaffirms the best way to harness the energy of the moment.

Aspects to Ponder

My Tarot birth cards reflect quite well my inner self. Your Tarot reading gave me strong hope. Thank you for being encouraging.

Crystal Grid Oracle Cards

48-card oracle deck by Ashley Leavy, 2015

This simple deck includes 48 cards with beautiful photos of crystal grids for different purposes and goals, along with 16 instructional cards with spreads and more details (the little white book presented on cards instead of as a booklet).


Indie Wild Rune Oracle Deck

24-card rune deck by Tiffany Sosa of Boho and Indie Wild, out of print, 2018?

The Indie Wild Rune Oracle presents each of the 24 traditional Elder Futhark Runes along with a whimsical illustration in card form. While I also have a wonderful set of runestones, the cards are uniformly shaped and sized, allowing me to choose intuitively rather than by the physical feel of the stones. I prefer the cards for some readings, especially when reading for others. This is my 3rd deck from Boho and Indie Wild, another thoughtfully-illustrated deck with lovely cosmic backgrounds.

Check out the Boho and Indie Wild Etsy Shop for readings and other beautiful decks by Tiffany Sosa.



Thanks for a great positive reading. This is really interesting. It gives me lots to think about.

Great, positive reading

Thank you for taking the time to read for me. I found a lot to ponder in what you wrote. Stephanie had insights and sensitivity that really helped.

Mini Moon Deck

10-card black and white moon phase oracle deck

From the creators of the Moon Journal, the Mini Moon Deck is perfect for tracking the current moon phase (8 phases represented) or adding meaning to a reading by layering moon phases for more specific messages. “

Imagine harnessing the power of the moon and her eight main phases to create a more harmonious rhythm in your day to day life. Understanding the Moon will yield magical results for your missions, goals, prosperity and inner peace.”


Money Magic Manifestation Cards

48-card affirmation deck by Ethony* Dawn, 2nd edition

The Money Magic Manifestation deck offers healing words to increase your abundance mindset. Each small, rainbow-colored card has a simple yet powerful message to improve your financial outlook. The Money Magic deck may be used for an entire reading, or for a single-card draw–which is how I most often use them, usually as an affirmation for a financial or career reading. Our financial beliefs and fears are so often tied to many aspects of our lives and histories.

Ethony* is the author of Your Tarot Court: Read Any Deck with Confidence. See Ethony*’s other available decks in her Etsy shop.


Muses of Tarot

46-card Oracle deck by Ethony* Dawn, 2020

This deck includes 13 Tarot Muses to empower and enhance your Tarot readings. Their areas of assistance range from healing to prosperity to shadow work. While this deck isn’t for full readings on its own, I can happily include the relevant Muse with your Tarot spread. Ethony* is the creator of the Money Magic Manifestation Cards and the Awakened Soul Oracle deck.


Runes

Resin-cast botanical rune tiles by Rikki Song (Etsy), 2020

These amazing translucent rune tiles, cast in resin with holographic glitter and botanical inclusions, are a magickal set. My custom runes include butterflies and real flowers, and they are an absolute delight to use for readings. They are a perfect addition to any Tarot reading, creating a lens to view your reading or adding another layer of meaning for precision. Multi-talented artist @the.resinwitch on IG is currently focusing on resin-cast trays, jewelry, and items to elevate your practice. The creator, and my sibling, has also produced notable band photography, pastries (especially notable), and props for far-out DragonCon role plays. See their work on IG and Etsy.


Sacred Self-Care Rituals Oracle Deck

55-card oracle deck by Jill Pyle of Goddess Provisions and Tatiana Vedenkina, 1st edition (out of print), 2019

I received this self-care deck in with my fabulous Goddess Box subscription from Goddess Provisions. These cards serve as single-card oracles that prompt us to slow down, breathe, and look after ourselves well. The rainbow-pastel images are visually soothing. I like including a self-care card in my readings since many of us would do well to practice more self-care. My apologies for the difficult-to-see center cards in my photos. The 2nd edition is available.


Starseed Oracle

53-card mystic oracle deck by Rebecca Campbell and Danielle Noel, 2020

From the creators of the Work Your Light Oracle, This deck features captivating celestial artwork with captions that gently stir something peaceful within. The Starseed Oracle is perfect for readings when you can’t quite capture your thoughts in words or you’re seeking deep validation on a soul level. The larger card size and smooth matte card stock emphasize the artwork. This is one of my favorite Oracle decks, both for the dreamy art and gentle messages.

Illustrator Danielle Noel also created the beautiful Starchild Tarot (2012, reprinted 2020) and wrote the 2018 Book of Tarot: A Guide for Modern Mystics. Rebecca Campbell is the author of Light is the New Black: A Guide to Answering Your Soul’s Callings and Rise Sister Rise: A Guide to Unleashing the Wise, Wild Woman Within.

Universal Mind Oracle

44-card mystical oracle deck (out of print) by Michelle Black, revised 1st edition, 2017

The Universal Mind Oracle features nature and space images that are photo-realistic with dream-like artistic overlays. Creator Michelle Black states she’s “inspired by fantasy, flowers, wildlife, and dreams”. My favorite use of this deck is to draw one card to set the tone for a Tarot reading. This was my very first deck of any kind. Working with these amazing cards inspired me to learn more about cartomancy. The glossy finish made it difficult for me to get clear photos of this gorgeous deck, so please see the great review and photos at Pink Stardust Tarot.



Stephanie Dreams offered interesting insights and information, and was very friendly, helpful, prompt, and knowledgeable
