The Herbcrafter’s Tarot

$23.95

The Herbcrafter’s Tarot celebrates the handicrafts, tools, and time honored folk skills related to herbs, trees, flowers and other plants that share their gifts with us. This deck and book set explores the relationship between herbs and how people use them for medicine, creativity, ritual, and spiritual guidance. It also considers herbs as archetypes and explores our partnership with the botanical realm. Herbcrafter’s Tarot is an engaging introduction to herbalism and plant spirit magic, and can be used as a profound divinatory tool.
The set includes a 78-card deck and a 124-page book full of herbal inspiration and ideas for crafting with the cards.

Beginning with the premise that herbs are archetypes in botanical form, this deck builds on the traditional 78-card Rider-Waite-Smith tarot format to bring the magic of herbs into the hands of readers. Rather than documenting the properties associated with specific plants, this deck focuses on the relationships between people and plants. Dandelion shows us The Fool. Garlic teaches us about Strength. Rose shows us the heart of The Empress.
Joanna Powell Colbert’s illustrations are beautifully designed and rendered. They contain symbolism, captured in small details, that harkens back to Waite’s demanding standards. The cards respectfully reflect Latisha’s Mexican-American heritage and the Celtic heritage that she shares with Joanna. The companion book explains it all perfectly.
Whether you are a tarot reader, an herbalist, or someone who occasionally buys potted herbs in the grocery store, this is a deck that will brighten your world.
