Halloween Tarot Decks
Tarot decks perfect for Halloween - ghosts, witches, vampires, zombies and more.
The All Hallows Tarot, previously only available in a 22 card set, is a now full 79 card deck (the regular 78 plus a Happy Squirrel card). It has a modern Halloween theme, with strange people emerging from the dark - goths, ghosts, punks and mediums - drawn in Robyn's trademark style.
The Dark Grimoire Tarot takes its inspiration from magical texts of fiction and legend - the Necronomicon and other grimoires. The 78 cards have non-traditional scenes of horror and nightmare. Often strange, they're also sometimes disturbing, particularly in the literal Hanged Man.
The Deck of the Dead has 78 cards created from vintage etchings and prints, all themed around Death. Each card has been edited to fit the Rider-Waite system and the minors are fully illustrated. Self-published by the artist, it's available in three different sizes.
The Deviant Moon Tarot has surreal, very unique, and sometimes disturbing moonlit artwork. It's inspired by (and incorporates) images of cemetaries and mental asylums, and designed to illuminate deeper parts of the subsconscious. The talented illustrator is also a tarot student, and the deck is the result of three years of artistic work. Now also available in a borderless edition.
The Ghosts and Spirits Tarot features ethereal and supernatural beings from legend and lore. The 79-card deck is from Lisa Hunt and is illustrated in her very recognisable style, as seen in the Fantastical Creatures and Animals Divine decks.
The Halloween Lenormand is a 36-card light-heartedly spooky deck, roughly based on the Petit Lenormand style. It has simple symbols traditionally associated with Halloween - pumpkins, the headless horseman, bats, and more. Self-published and available from The Game Crafter.
The Halloween Oracle celebrates Samhain and the Halloween tradition in 36 elegantly illustrated cards. Some feature the traditional black cats, ghosts, skulls and pumpkins, others have more modern additions of zombies and vampires.
A fun Rider-Waite-based Tarot deck in the theme of the American Halloween holiday. The Halloween Tarot is done in lots of black and orange, vampires, skeletons, bats and jack o' lanterns abound. Frankenstein makes an unusual Emperor.
The Midnight Madness Lenormand was inspired by the night of Samhain (also known as Halloween). It has 36 traditionally named cards, with colourful collage illustrations and playing card insets. Self-published by the artist.
The Necronomicon Tarot is the completion of author Donald Tyson's trilogy that draw on the mythology created by H.P. Lovecraft, the occult writer. It's a dark deck (as you might expect) with 78 cards fully illustrated with computer-generated art. Also comes with a companion book.
Tarot Card Trick or Treat is cutely macabre Halloween themed deck of 22 cards, with many familiar Halloween images and characters. It was published in Korea and has English titles on the cards, though the guidebook is only in Korean.
The Tarot of Vampyres is a vampire themed deck created by British illustrator, Ian Daniels. The gothic-style art in his 78-card deck is stunning - romantic, seductive, brooding and dark.
It almost seems like Tim Burton helped with the Vampire Tarot. Full of elegant vampires, bloodied fangs, full moons and desolate landscapes, it's refined and only slightly macabre.
The Vampire Tarot of the Eternal Night is another vampiric deck - this one from Lo Scarabeo. It has photo-real images with an edge of horror by Davide Corsi, and a companion book by Barbara Moore.
The Zombie Tarot is from the creator of the Housewives Tarot. This 78-card deck is a retro oracle of the undead, where 'wands become limbs, pentacles are biohazard symbols, and the Major Arcana is full of shambling corpses'.
