This vibrantly colored deck is designed to integrate the healing properties of traditional herbs with the esoteric symbolism of tarot. Herbal Tarot follows the general assignments of the Rider-Waite deck, but each card is assigned an individual medicinal herb based upon intuition, astrological and energetic values. A different herb is pictured and identified on each card.
The deck was drawn by Candis Cantin under the direction of herbalist Michael Tierra. According to the creators, "The Herbal Tarot is a tool for studying the psycho-physical energy of herbs. Herbs, when joined with the tarot, can provide a symbolic material manifestation to accompany a specific divination. This will encourage communication with the subconscious for which the Tarot cards are especially powerful.”
The full-color, 78-card deck includes and instructional booklet. An indispensable tool for the hedge witch or kitchen witch!
