Modern Witch Tarot Deck Review
If you consider yourself as a modern witch then this deck is a real must-have for you! It is a mix of classic Tarot images with elements and symbols of the world around.
Cards are drawn in a simple but in a bright style. They resemble comics or illustrations in a fashion magazine.
The deck looks bold and expressive. On the cards you can see young girls and women of different backgrounds, occupations, nationalities, and races. This is a mix of popular trends and our everyday reality.
Modern Witch Tarot is a deck for active women seeking to use their own inner strength and intuition.
There is an interesting story about how this deck was created. Artist and Illustrator Lisa Sterle tweeted her own drawing of Ten of Swords. As a result, she received plenty of enthusiastic comments in response. It has inspired Lisa to create an entire deck.
"Ten of Swords: Everything is fine. It’s fine. Really. Sure, you’ve been completely pierced through with ten sharp swords, and you’re collapsed into a ball on the floor. You’re struggling, just trying to survive, as the weight grows ever heavier. You’re going through something truly soul-crushing and it feels like your world is ending. Every movement hurts, and sometimes only a meaningless distraction feels like it’ll help. But the pain will end, and you will come out stronger having survived it."
Modern Witch Tarot has made a breakthrough in the development of indie Tarot decks. It showed that Tarot can be bold and modern. And possessing the idea and creativity, anyone can create and publish their own deck. This example led to the crowdsourcing boom and the variety of decks of independent contemporary authors that we are seeing nowadays.
Deck was published by Liminal 11. The cards are of excellent quality. The set includes a small hardcover companion book and a velvet baggie with cute embroidery. All are packed in a solid beautiful box.
And by the way, you can buy the Modern Witch Tarot Journal separately. This includes a complete reference with the meanings of the cards. You can also write notes to the journal, get useful additional information from it, and use it to practice your Tarot skills. The book contains beautiful illustrations by Lisa Sterle and has a faux leather cover with the Modern Witch logo.
