Now in poker size! A companion piece to my first Tarot deck, the gorgeous Fiery Wands Tarot: it has the same mysterious and beautiful Major Arcana, Cups and Pentacles. However, in the Airy Wands Tarot, the correspondences of Wands and Swords are reversed, so that Swords mean Fire and Wands mean Air.
A special edition to celebrate the marriage of my gay friends. The characters in The Lovers and The Two of Cups are gay men of different races.
Like the Fiery Wands Tarot, the Airy Wands version has these variations from the Rider-Waite deck:
Instead of the High Priestess, Juno with dagger, spear and peacock... but you could see her as a high priestess
Instead of the Hierophant, Jupiter with thunderbolt and eagle.
These variations are inspired by the old medieval deck, the Tarot of Besançon, which has "Juno" and "Jupiter" as the second and fifth cards. I chose that deck as a model because Besançon is a special place for me - it was the destination of my very first ever journey to a foreign country at the age of 17 - and it seemed as if it was meant to be.
The pip cards are fully illustrated and mostly echo the classic designs of the Rider-Waite deck, though with less sexism, and the "Smiling Suns" back design is fully reversible.
