The Herbcrafter's Tarot - The Legacy of Women Healers

The sixteen People cards represent the legacy of women healers throughout history:

  • Pages become Hijas (daughters)

  • Knights become Adelitas (warriors)

  • Queens become Madres (mothers)

  • Kings become Curanderas (healers)

Only the hands of the herbcrafter are featured to better highlight the plant as well as celebrate the slow intentional ritual of handcrafting.

 
I’m beside myself with glee going through these cards and the incredible artwork. The info in the guidebook is top notch. Anyone even a bit witchy leaning will want this deck.
