Herbcrafter's Tarot


Recommended Posts

From Joanna Powell Colbert's newsletter:


I am over-the-moon thrilled to let you know about the new tarot deck I’ve been working on for the past three years, the Herbcrafter’s Tarot!


I created it with my friend Latisha Guthrie of Herbmother.com. I know tarot, Latisha knows herbs. We collaborated on the content, I did the artwork, and Latisha wrote the book. Together we’ve created something unique and beautiful! The deck and book set will be released by US Games in the Spring of 2019.


Here’s what it’s all about:


The Herbcrafter’s Tarot celebrates the handicrafts, tools, and time-honored folk skills related to herbs, trees, flowers, and other plants that share their gifts with us. The deck and book set explores the relationship between herbs and how people use them for medicine, creativity, delight, tools, ritual, and spiritual guidance.


It is not solely about the properties of specific plants, but our human connection to them. We focus on the craft instead of the clinical and the art instead of the astrological.


The Herbcrafter’s Tarot tells the story of the maker as much as the plants.


It’s an engaging introduction to herbalism and plant spirit magic, and can be used as a profound divinatory tool. The set includes a 78-card deck and a 124-page book full of herbal inspiration and ideas for crafting with the cards.

I just received an email saying that the deck and companion book are now available for pre-order from US Games. Looks lovely!


Pre-ordering entitles you to an additional ebook, “Recipes and Rituals of the Herbcrafter’s Tarot.” Details on all of this are here: https://www.gaiansoul.com/shop/pre-order-hct/

I've already emailed to find out about UK availability  :D It looks amazing and I love the idea of learning more about herbalism. The Gaian is one of my favourite decks, so I'm sure this will be equally fantastic.
