While there are many tarot decks focused on witches very few are as well envisioned, charming, and satisfyingly complete as the Everyday Witch Tarot.
This deck steps away from depicting witches as serious, humourless, and weighed down with new-age cliches – clad in monastic robes, a crystal clasped in one hand and communing solemnly with the spirits of nature. Instead we are presented with witches tackling everyday life issues with exuberance, grit, and determination. A broad spectrum of situations and corresponding emotions are tackled with a delicate touch which neither mocks the seriousness of the situation nor suffocates them under a blanket of Pagan jargon.
The deck is created by author Deborah Blake and artist Elisabeth Alba. This is a classic 78 card deck, with 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana cards. The titles of Major Arcana cards are familiar and unchanged, and the suits of the Minor Arcana are Swords, Pentacles, Cups, and Wands. The Minor Arcana suits each have 10 number cards and 4 Court cards – Page, Knight, Queen, and King. The titles of all cards are given in full on a banner at the bottom of the illustrations.
