Desert Illuminations Tarot

The Great American Southwest comes to life in this vivid indie deck by Linsday D. Williams.

Out of stock

A fun take on the Rider Waite Smith, this colorful indie tarot deck is full of neon colored imagery that relates to desert life. In this deck you’ll find Native American Kachinas, wide brimmed hats, an abundance of cacti as well as extraterrestrial beings. 

Composed of 78 cards like a traditional tarot deck, the major arcana remain primarily the same with subtle variations. The minors take a different perspective altogether where you’ll find the chiles instead of wands, the cactus representing the pentacle, jugs to replace cups and daggers instead of swords. 

***Please note that this deck does NOT contain a guidebook.*** Instead Lindsay has included a helpful pamphlet with a brief introduction to the deck, her changes and interpretations and her own variation of a tarot spread. If you are a beginner and still would like to purchase this deck, go for it! In that instance it’s suggested that you pick up a book to help you with your tarot studies. We recommend Tarot - No Questions Asked by Therea Reed or Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom by Rachel Pollack. 

This is a thought gift for a friend who has a thing for tarot and bright colors (or aliens). It’s a great self-purchase if you like your decks to follow the Rider Waite Smith format but offer a bit of neon pizazz.

I absolutely fell in love with this deck when I first laid eyes on it. I knew I had to have it on the site someday. There are so many self-published creators out there, however I only put ones on the site that I personally resonate with. Lindsay has a very irreverent sense of humor, much like Pamela Cole Smith, and this shows up in the subtle nuances of her illustrations. I appreciate her attention to detail and the passion she put into this deck. It always makes me smile. I feel this deck has a warm energy and is a good one for anyone who likes to be read to filth, but done with a dash of laughter.

Magical Discoveries

The Magician card in this deck has the Hopi Kachina the Dawa, or the father. He is also known as the sun. An interesting choice for the Magician as in these sacred ceremonies the Dawa is in charge of all that happens. You need to ask the Dawa for permission. You need to give the Dawa thanks and praise.
