MerryDay Tarot

The MerryDay Tarot is a magical, fantastical, incredible tarot deck, mixing fantasy and reality. The artwork has its basis in the Rider-Waite, but is filled with detail, dragons and natural elements. The suits are multi-cultural and all associations with formal religion in the deck have been removed.

MerryDay Tarot review by Kim Huggens

I acquired this lovely deck a few months ago from another Aeclectic member, and I must say that it has proved to be not only a wonderful addition to my collection, but a very good reading deck too.

The artist, Louisa Poole, whilst keeping largely to the Rider Waite and some Thoth meanings, has done a wonderful job of interpreting each card differently, often changing the images in the cards and sometimes the names of the cards, a change quite noticeable in the Major Arcana. For instance, the Hanged Man is titled the JourneyMan, and instead of showing the traditional hanging man, this deck shows a man with large white wings, meditating on what looks like a small bubble. His feet are limited by metal bars, and behind his is a spoked wheel.
