NUMINOUS – surpassing comprehension or understanding; mysterious.
The Numinous Tarot, by creator Cedar McCloud, is a deck that strives to bring a variety of experiences to the wonderfully complex symbolism of the Tarot. Rendered in beautiful and luminous watercolor and inks, the Numinous Tarot shows the beauty of diversity in the world, from body type, ability, race, to gender identity and expression. These things are not used as symbols in and of themselves; rather, they are there to show the infinite ways that all people can experience magic and mystery, especially those who are often excluded from it.
The Numinous Tarot is a 79-card Tarot deck with fully illustrated pips and one extra card called The Numinous. The suits, court cards, and some of the Major Arcana have been renamed to fit the mystical theme of the deck and/or remove gendered titles.
The physical Numinous Tarot guidebook will be 6″x9″ and 128 pages. It features 1-2 page interpretations for all 79 cards, plus sections on Tarot reading basics, the Numinous Tarot suits and court titles, spreads, and more. It will be written using gender neutral language, from a queer, feminist perspective. My card interpretations also feature a particular emphasis on shadow work, mental health, self-discovery, and personal growth. Based on the Rider-Waite-Smith style of reading, but also fairly removed from it.
