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 Astral is the fourth global tarot collaboration in the '78 Tarot' series, and this one has a space theme. Each card has been created by one of 78 talented artists, who include Ravynne Phelan, Jasmine Becket-Griffith and Larry Elmore. The deck is funding now through Kickstarter.
The American Renaissance Tarot is a literary-themed 78-card tarot, featuring 36 American writers and depicting scenes of great American literature from the years 1825-1875. The major arcana focus on Transcendentalism and also tell the story of the abolition of slavery, while the minor arcana illustrates works from Herman Melville (Wands), Edgar Allen Poe (Swords), Nathaniel Hawthorne (Cups), and Frederick Douglass (Coins). Funding now through Indiegogo.
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 Silson Lenormand takes its inspiration from medieval illustrations, and imagines a Lenormand as old as the earliest surviving Tarot decks. It's designed in a deliberately rough, primitive style based on hand coloured woodcuts and manuscript illuminations from the 15th century. Available in two limited editions: coloured and uncoloured.
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.
The Sophia Wise One Oracle has 66 unusual petal-shaped, hand-painted cards for contemplation or advice. Each card is designed as a complete teaching in itself, based on the artist's own journey of healing. The deck is supported by a companion book and instructional videos for each card.
Tabula Mundi Tarot: Colores Arcus is the full-colour, 78-card edition of the black and white Tabula Mundi Nox et Lux. The card images are Thoth inspired and draw from the Book of T, and are coloured according to the Golden Dawn colour scales. The minor arcana are unique in that their illustration is drawn from the major arcana card linked with the same astrological decan.
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.
The Universal Love Healing Oracle is the 12 anniversary edition of the original Universal Love Cards. The deck now has new paintings from Toni Carmine Salerno and revised messages of wisdom.
