Do a search on Goddesses and you'll find a whole lot of results. And that's perfectly understandable because there a great many different kinds of Goddesses out there from all over the world.

In a single mythology, it's already a given that you'll find more than one Goddess. And these Goddesses govern or preside over many different things.

Let's take Greek Mythology as an example. There are a lot of Greek Goddesses. We have Artemis who is the Greek Goddess of the Hunt but who is also associated with the Moon.

There is Hera who is the Greek Goddess of Marriage, Aphrodite who is the Greek Goddess of Love & Beauty, Iris who is the Greek Goddess of the Rainbow, and Demeter who is the Greek Goddess of the Harvest.

The Queen of Pentacles

From many other mythologies, we have a variety of many other different kinds of Goddesses. For instance, from Roman mythology, we have Minerva who is the Goddess of Wisdom & War, and Vesta who is the Goddess of the Hearth. .

From Norse mythology, we have Freya who is the Goddess of Love & Battle, Skadi who is the Goddess of Winter and Idunn who is the Goddess of Youth.

From Egyptian mythology, we have Isis who is the Goddess of Magic, Marriage & Healing, Wadjet who is the Goddess of Protection and Nut who is the Goddess of Sky & Stars.

The Earth is also associated with Goddesses as can be seen in the many different kinds of Earth Goddesses out there such as Gaia from Greek Mythology and Terra from Roman Mythology.

Goddesses play a large part in many mythologies. We hear of many stories about all of these Goddesses such as in the story of the Iliad, the Odyssey and the Aeneid, which feature Goddesses alongside the many other characters.

There are also many artworks about these Goddesses such as in the forms of paintings and statues.

We have such famous and well-known artworks like the statues called the "Venus de Milo" and the "Diana of Versailles", both of which are displayed in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.

Goddesses are associated with many things but of course the most notable associations are the ones pertaining to womanhood and femininity.

Goddesses are also associated with such things as the moon and nature, hence the many Moon and Nature Goddesses out there

Since there are so many different kinds of Goddesses out there, there are a lot of them that can be used as images on Tarot Cards decks that have a theme centered on Goddesses. These Goddess-themed cards would aim to celebrate womanhood and show that women aren't inferior to men and that they can also be powerful.

Goddess-themed Tarot Cards decks:

1. Mythical Goddess Tarot Deck and Guidebook Set by Sage Holloway (author) and Katherine Skaggs (illustrator)

This product, featured on the right, includes both the guidebook and the Tarot Cards deck, which can definitely be seen as a bargain.

After all, if you only get the deck, then you're missing out on what the cards mean and all other information that is contained within the book.

On the other hand, if you only get the book, then you can't practice and make use of whatever you learned in the book because you don't have the Tarot Cards that go with it.

With the Mythical Goddess Tarot deck, you can definitely see the many faces of the different Goddesses as contained within the 78 cards that make up this deck.

 

The Mythical Goddess Tarot Cards has lovely artwork and designs. The cards have a lot of vibrant colors that really seem to bring the deck to life.

Of course, since this is a Goddess-themed deck, you can expect to see a lot of women in the cards.

In some cards, like the Earth Crone Ascension card, it's only a face that you can see and not the full person but the face is clearly that of a woman.

In other cards, like the Morgan le Fay I Sorceress card and the Kuan Yin III Empress card, you can clearly see the full image of a woman and not just a head. The guidebook that comes with this deck has 128 pages that is in full color.

As a note: if you check out this product in Amazon.com, you can see many more images of the item in question, specifically how the Tarot Cards look like. They're customer images though and that's why you can't see them in this hub (because I'm not sure if we can use those images).

2. Universal Goddess Tarot Cards (English and Spanish Edition) by Lo Scarabeo

We have Goddesses from around the world that make up the figures in these cards.

Examples include Frigg, the Norse Goddess, and Demeter, the Greek Goddess.

 

There are 78 cards in this deck. Lo Scarabeo is a well-known publisher of Tarot Cards decks so you can be sure that the Universal Goddess deck by Scarabeo is of high quality with excellent artwork designs.

This deck has lovely art with a variety of different colors that make it look vibrant and stunning. Since this is a deck with a Goddess theme, you can see that many of the cards are depicted by women figures.

If you observe the artwork of these Tarot Cards, you will note that the Goddesses in the images all look different from each other. These Goddesses seem to reflect and represent the mythology from which they came from.

For instance, the image of the Ace of Chalices seems to have a Japanese feel to it while the image of the High Priestess seems to have an Egyptian feel to it. This isn't just with regards to the women in the cards but also the background of the cards themselves.

This is the English and Spanish deluxe edition of the Universal Goddess Tarot Cards deck, which includes the cards, an embroidered velvet bag, and instruction manual.

 

The Ace of Chalices card has some sakura (cherry blossoms) in the background, which clearly represent Japan while the High Priestess card has a pyramid in the background, which clearly represents Egypt.

It's clear that there are a lot of nuances and much depth to this deck. And it really shows the many faces of women and Goddesses from around the world.

As a note: if you want to see some sample images from this deck, you can see some from aeclectic.net since Amazon.com does not have any more sample images aside from the one featured here.

3. The Goddess Tarot Deck by Kris Waldherr

The three (3) items featured on the right are actually the same. They're all the Goddess Tarot Cards deck made by Kris Waldherr.

However, the third item featured on the right is actually an application for Android phone and tablet users.

Let's start with the first two items on the right. They're the same except one is apparently newer, The second item on the right has more images but those are customer images so if you want to see them, just head on over to Amazon.com.

If you want to see even more sample images of the cards, you can also check at aeclectic.net, which has more cards that are different from the ones featured at Amazon.com

This tarot deck has 78 cards. The artwork design is very different from the previously-discussed Tarot decks (numbers 1 and 2 above).

But this doesn't mean the artwork is bad. The design has its own unique look and beautiful colors that can appeal to many people. Many of the cards depict women figures. We have Goddesses like Isis and Venus featured in the Tarot Cards.

But some of the cards, like the Ten of Cups and the Ace of Staves, do not have images of women on them. For instance, in the case of the Ten of Cups card, you can just see 10 cups and a rainbow.

Now, for the third item on the right, as aforementioned, it is an application for Android users. People that have Android phones and tablets can purchase this application, which allows them to do Tarot Card readings straight from their Android device.

You can see many images of how this application looks like here. As you can see, the application looks really cool. After all, with this application, you can read Tarot Cards even without having a physical deck. However, some people do recommend that you still have a physical Tarot deck for more accurate readings.

      At this point in time though I have over a hundred Tarot card decks, I don't have even one Goddess deck. I was never drawn to them. I think I will look at a few including these ones, and see if that has changed at all. Thanks for pointing this out!

      Nice article. Voted up.

      Hi,

      These sound really interesting. Many metaphysical stores keep one open deck of each kind the store carries. They punch one hole in each card of one deck, and hang it so the buyer can see every card before they purchase the deck. There is also a site Aeclectic Tarot, which shows pictures of many tarot decks before you make a choice. I have so many decks, but I don't have a Goddess one either! Recently I've been playing around with the Revelations deck, the artwork is stunning! I will consider these decks you describe.

      @GwennyOh - hello and thanks for the comment and the vote. People have their own different preferences so some would find Goddess-themed decks appealing to them while some might prefer other kinds of decks. But it is good to be able to see if one might like a certain type of deck or not.

      @Jean Bakula - hello and thanks for the comment. It is a good idea for potential buyers to be able to see the cards in a deck before purchasing it so they can see if they really like the deck or if they'd prefer something else. A lot of the decks do have stunning artwork designs that might draw people to them.
