NICOLETTA CECCOLI TAROT • Nicoletta Ceccoli • Lo Scarabeo
Nicoletta Ceccoli takes us back down the rabbit hole; this time to explore the world of tarot. Tarot and Ceccoli. It’s a perfect pairing.

These two-sided cards, designed by Richard Crookes, pair the vibrational energy of totem animals with corresponding crystals. Lembo asks readers to look for signs in their own lives to determine what messages animals bring to us when they occur repeatedly in our dreams or in real life. She suggests the crystal vibration that will help maximize the energy that the animal appears to be gifting to the reader. Each card contains a declaration of affirmative thinking on each side. (Red Calcite • Ant • I stay focused on the task at hand.) 44-card deck. SHOP FOR THE DECK

This deck represents the original Indie-Deck success story. Kim Krans set the story in motion and made the world aware of it, then Harper One expanded that into a series of groundbreaking products. Krans put pen to paper directly to capture the spirit of the animal kingdom, allowing each creature to signal its inherent message. The personality of each species is represented, fully animated, and reaching out off the card to connect with the reader’s intent. These animals become personal friends and mentors as we make our way through the deck. 63-card deck with handwritten companion guide. SHOP FOR THE DECK

SPIRIT WITHIN TAROT • Steven Bright • RED Feather
Bold, graphic backgrounds are inhabited by stark, black silhouettes in this very modern interpretation of traditional tarot.

The deck is more relevant than ever, serving as a mirror which reflects back to each reader whatever it is they need to see.

This is one of my all-time favorite decks. It captures the excitement of old-fashioned, traveling circuses and sideshows. The circus is a world which Joe Lee knows well and it infuses his graphic artwork. His Major Arcana cards merge tarot and circus icons while taking on the style of mid-century circus posters. His Minor Arcana cards express traditional symbolism with depictions of day-to-day life under and around the big top. From the glitz and glory to the sweat and strain, readers enter this mysterious world for a tour that is meant to reveal the deeper wisdom of the ages. 78-card deck and guidebook. SHOP FOR THE DECK
