I am super excited to finally share about the big secret writing project I’ve been working on: The Herbcrafter’s Tarot.
It was created with my friend Joanna Powell Colbert of Gaiansoul.com over the last three years. We collaborated on the concepts, Joanna did the art and I wrote the book. 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.
“The magic is in the making.”
From now until the deck’s release in the spring, we will be sharing sneak peeks at some of the cards on Instagram and Facebook and newsletters.
