The Gentle Tarot is an indigenous-made, colourful and uplifting, nature inspired tarot deck.

From the creator:

I am a nature-inspired illustrator, creating a hand-drawn tarot deck filled with imagery influenced by life in remote Alaska. It is touched throughout by my indigenous spiritual background.


I draw much of my strength and inspiration from our natural environment, as it has always been my comfort and guide. I strongly believe that our mental health is very much influenced by our connection or lack of connection with our ecosystem. The art of these cards attempts to bridge the gap and remind us of the power and love found there.


The deck is a classic 78 card deck. Some of the cards are lightly based on the Rider-Waite deck, however many of the illustrations are the result of complete surrender to creative/spiritual process. Motifs and symbols, along with colours, have been used throughout the deck to make for easy recognition and to assist with remembering the meanings of the cards.


The minor arcana labels have been slightly modified, Swords have become Thunder and Pentacles have become Stones.


The cards have colour coded rims to match their element:

  • Major Arcana – Spirit – Purple
  • Cups – Water – Blue
  • Wands – Fire – Red
  • Thunder – Air – Yellow
  • Stones – Earth – Green

The Gentle Tarot specs:

  • Comes in a sturdy, two-part box with lift out ribbon
  • Cards are gold-edged, and printed on thick, matte cardstock
  • Includes a 186-page illustrated guidebook by the artist
