Rainbow Moon Tarot is a fantastical tarot deck that breaks out of the traditional gender binary, instead focusing on inclusivity, whimsy, and humor.
When creating this deck, the artist knew some things would be important for her to include—fantastical elements, modern fashion, diversity, breaking out of the traditional gender binary, and whimsy. She opened her Instagram to volunteer models for the deck to ensure she would include real, diverse bodies. The result is stunning.
Although the traditional tarot structure has been maintained, the images have no gender, which allows the reader to focus on the duality of receptive and outward energy. Created through a Kickstart campaign by alternative designer and artist Sam West, this deck offers a unique, hands-on guide to the craft of ritual-making in a secular age.
Intended for serious readings, Rainbow Moon Tarot also reminds us that it is okay to smile and enjoy the cards.
