Fairy Tarot Card Decks
I've always had a thing for fairies and fairy lights. (Haven't most of us??) If you like to read tarot cards and also happen to like fairies, you should have a look at these fairy tarot card decks -- they're beautiful! In fact, as I sit here writing this, I've got plans to buy the first deck shown, but more on that in a moment. Bear in mind that these would also make a lovely gift for anyone who just happens to be into fairies; the artwork alone would probably enthrall any fairy lover. And if you do get yourself a lovely fairy tarot set, take a look at these tarot boxes and tarot bags for both storing and transporting your tarot cards around.
This is the deck I have already put in my Amazon.com shopping basket; I am buying it as soon as I finish writing this article. Seriously. The Faerie Tarot was designed by Nathalie Hertz and I've already got her "Fantastical Tarot" deck which is just stunning and awesome to read. Her artwork is absolutely brilliant and I cannot wait to get this fairy tarot deck! Instead of the more traditional suits of Swords, Cups, Wands and Pentacles the Faerie Tarot uses the seasons. Be sure to read the book for artist intentions and interpretations. 72 cards in all measuring 7.2 x 4.6 inches.
Fairy Ring Oracle
The Fairy Ring Oracle is separated into seasonal suits (winter, summer, spring and fall) and comes with a book that will help you select and interpret spreads as well as explain each card and its meaning. Created by Anna Franklin (witchy author of numerous witchcraft books) and Paul Mason (pagan photographer/illustrator). 60 cards in all with four spreads provided and explained.
The Fairy Tarot Kit
The Fairy Tarot Kit is cute and interesting. Suits are divided up into the following categories: Acorns, Hearts, Leaves, and Bells. At times the Major Arcana uses fairy folk in place of more traditional cards. Manufactured by Lo Scarabeo there are 72 cards in all and an accompanying guide book. This deck isn't as brilliantly colored at the Faerie Tarot, so if you prefer more subdued and "grown up" colors, this may be the tarot deck for you.
Mystic Faerie Tarot
Linda Ravenscroft has designed a gorgeous watercolor faerie tarot. The artwork is gentle and mythical without being overtly bright, for those who are put off by such things. Barbara Moore has written several tarot books and has been involved in all sorts of tarot work throughout her career, so you know her books are going to have lots of info for anyone learning tarot or already skilled in the art. These two women have created a very popular tarot deck, indeed!
