It is refreshing to see a lot of discussions in the Tarot community these days about normalizing diversity in Tarot. Representation matters. It matters when you are reading for yourself, but even more so when you are reading for a client. The reading becomes more meaningful when clients can see themselves reflected in the deck. This includes many things such as, age, size, race, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, etc. The Neo Tarot by Jerico Mandybur illustrated by Daiana Ruiz is a wonderful example of how Tarot decks can be inclusive. The illustrations on these cards are simple, stunning, and powerful. I just got this deck a couple of days ago and I am so enjoying reading with it. It is very reasonably priced and easily found online.The Neo Tarot is RWS inspired, so anyone familiar with that system should have no trouble reading it with it. Even if you are not familiar with the RWS system the card images are straight forward and pretty easy to interpret. The Guidebook is also straightforward and supplies both upright and reversed meanings for each of the seventy-eight cards. In addition to meanings, the Guidebook also includes self-care ideas for each card. That is a welcome addition especially in these challenging times we find ourselves living in. I am looking forward to being able to offer it to clients for readings.
