The Moonchild Tarot
When I decided to come back to tarot and get to know it better, I looked at tens and tens of decks. None of them resonated with me. My first deck, the Mythic Tarot, gifted to me by my mother almost 20 years ago, was basically classical mythology layered on Rider-Waite but I never used it for more than ad hoc crisis readings. I bought the Thoth deck but its imagery felt dense and more obfuscatory than illuminating. I learned about this deck months ago now and with each piece of sample art felt more and more that it was the deck I wanted, but I didn’t want to wait. So I picked up the Tarot of Pagan Cats, because it’s basically a cuter Rider-Waite and I know Rider-Waite is good for beginners. It has been immensely helpful in my learning process. But now The Moonchild Tarot (@moonchildtarot) is available for pre-order and just looking at the box feels like a sacred yes. Neverending Story vibes combined with art nouveau and art deco influences? Yes please.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
