A groundbreaking blend of history, feminism, and the mystical arts, Our Tarot is a unique, specially designed tarot deck with cards that feature an intricate collage portrait of dozens of powerful women who have helped shape history. Each card conveys the energy, messages, and symbolism its figure brings to the deck.
The set includes a full-color guidebook that offers a concise history of the tarot deck, an explanation of the deck and the significance of the cards, and tips on interpreting each, with instructive sample spreads to guide you. It explains the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana and their chronology, offers biographies that link each woman’s life story, accomplishments, and traits with the card she represents, and explains the card’s relevance in a reading.
Each card in Our Tarot is inspired by the traditional meanings of the mystic Tarot and is represented by a woman (or group of women) who has influenced the world. These diverse women come from all eras in history, from 1300 BCE to the late twentieth century, and represent many ethnicities, creeds, socioeconomic classes, sexualities, ages, and abilities. Some of the women honored include Jane Addams, Lucrezia Borgia, Anne Frank, Frida Kahlo, Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth I, Cleopatra, Sophie Scholl, Cleopatra, Eleanor Roosevelt, Ida B. Wells, and many others.
