The Ultimate Tarot for Witches Everywhere
The art of this Tarot is amazing, brilliant and intense. It follows the form of a traditional Tarot and is able to blend the Qabalistic Tree of Life with Pagan symbolism. The High Priestess stands proudly in the Goddess pose and wears a garter showing that she is indeed a high priestess of many covens. The High Priest shows an older but power-filled man holding an athame. Strength shows that this card represents spiritual―the lion is tamed by the woman's spirit and meekly licks her chin. The Devil loses its evil reputation and returns to his original form as he becomes "The Honed One," showing a couple staring in awe at the powerful and loving God crowned in the horns of a stag. The Minor Arcana is also fully illustrated. Each card features strong characters in rural settings, evoking a feeling of ancient mystery and Pagan spirituality.
The included booklet features two spreads as well as the meanings of every card. Even if you've never used the Tarot before, this deck is ideal for beginners and experienced Tarot readers alike. And that's not all...
For more than half a century, Witchcraft has been very eclectic, borrowing from spiritual traditions that blended with its basic concepts. Here, the coloring is taken from the Tree of Life, making this deck also ideal for ceremonial magicians as well as Pagans of all kinds.
This original and unique deck features some incredibly realistic art and will inspire you to more intuitive readings and more intense meditative, pathworking, and magical work.

If you're like most people, the first thing you will say when you see Ellen Cannon Reed's The Witches Tarot is, "Wow!" Let me tell you why.
First, you're going to be amazed by the brilliant artwork of Martin Cannon. The images are neither flat nor comic-like. The people on them are living, breathing beings. The depictions of the Deities are stunning and fill you with awe. And the natural backgrounds ó from rocky crags to verdant fields, from simple homes to magnificent towers ó beckon you to participate with the gods and people on the cards.
"The Hermit" card is renamed "the Seeker." It shows a person seeking the spiritual light. Is it you? Is it someone you know? Working with the deck in meditation and with readings will help you see if that card is part of your reality.
The deck combines traditional Tarot symbolism, the Kabalah of the Tree of Life, and the Paganism of Wicca and Witchcraft. That makes this deck perfect for many people. Whether you are a ceremonial magician, a Wiccan, a Tarot reader or collector, a beginner or experienced user, this deck is ideal for your use.
Included with the deck is a booklet explaining the meanings of the cards and giving two spreads you can use for divination. The booklet and deck make this a complete divinatory system.
