Upcoming Tarot and Oracle Decks
Tarot and oracle decks that have been announced as forthcoming publications. They aren't yet published, but they are usually already available for pre-order.
The 78 Tarot Nautical is a collaborative deck from 78 different artists, who include Larry Elmore, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and many more. This deck has a nautical theme - pirates, mermaids, sea creatures and more.
The Angels of Abundance Tarot is another positive and simplified tarot from Doreen Virtue, this one designed to increase the flow of money, wealth, happiness and success into your life. Publication has been pushed back to early 2015.
The Decadent Dream Tarot pays homage to artists of the later Victorian era, in particular those from the Pre-Raphaelite, Symbolist, Decadent and Art Nouveau movements. Artworks from the era have been carefully chosen to match each of the 78 cards. The deck and companion book is now available for pre-order from the artist.
The Fairy Tarot Cards is another tarot deck from Doreen Virtue, this time with old-style fairy illustrations and practical fairy wisdom on each of the 78 cards. Due out from Lifestyles in late 2014.
The Minoan Oracle has 54 black and white images drawn from Minoan sculpture, frescoes, seal stones and archeological sites. The cards depict their gods and goddesses, animals, plant, geography, daily life and events (such as the Theran eruption). The deck and 200-page companion book is complete and due for release later in 2015.
The Orbifold Tarot expresses tarot symbolism through the geometry of circles, using a combination of numbers and the four elements to create simple and complex shapes that represent each card. The deck is now funding through Indiegogo.
The Prisma Visions Tarot is a beautiful 79-card deck from James R. Eads, creator of the Light Visions Tarot. His second deck has full-colour cards in an impressionistic, surreal artistic style. The major arcana cards are bordered, while the minor arcana cards are borderless - and each suit can be lined up into one continuous image.
The Psychobilly Tarot is inspired by the psychobilly music genre, a mix of retro rockabilly, rock'n'roll and punk. It has 26 cards - the major arcana and four aces - with imagery drawn from horror, science fiction, tattoo art, kustom kulture and vintage pin ups. The deck successfully crowd-funded, and the card images will also be part of a clothing line.
The Sacred Rebels Oracle is designed to help the reader live their own authentic, genuine life and truth. It has 44 cards with unique ecstatic and vivid illustrations, accompanied by an 180-page companion book.
The Singing Serpent Tarot is based firmly in tradition, with a 'unique twist, coil and slither'. The 78 black and white, hand-drawn cards each have a serpent present on the card, and are deliberately simply styled. Self-published by the artist and due for release at Samhain 2014.
Tabula Mundi Tarot Nox et Lux is the full edition of the Tabula Mundi Tarot, from the artist of the Rosetta Tarot. It has 78 black and white, Thoth-inspired cards based on the Golden Dawn teachings as in Book T.
