Lunar Fire Tarot is the collection of over a decade’s worth of my journal entries and personal spiritual experiences that have been brought to life by friend and artist, Nghia Hoang. This is a deck that strives to touch upon the honest parts of the human soul and the difficulties we undertake in our lives. Animal totems, monsters, saviors, shadows, and familiars lurk in every corner of the cards, taunting the reader to dig deeper into their messages and embrace the horror that the truth can bring. These terrifying experiences can be earth shattering, but for me, it brought about a more honest understanding of myself as both a tarot reader and as a person.
Lunar Fire tarot will have 80 cards (with an extra card titled ‘The Ancestors’ and a second, female version of the ‘Devil’ card). They will be the standard tarot deck size of 2.75" x 4.75" with a linen finish and will be in a two piece box with a booklet of card definitions.
What will the funds be used for?
The deck is currently 75% completed, although every card has been drafted already. A successful Kickstarter campaign means that Nghia can devote the rest of the year to drawing and coloring the deck to a faster completion and make his hand crafted leather pouches for your enjoyment. This will be his day job until it is completed. It will cover his cost of living expenses, as well as the costs of shipping, printing, and self-publishing this deck. I am wanting Lunar Fire to reach an international audience and I am hoping this can help offset the cost of overseas shipping. Funds will also help with the extra fees that come with Kickstarter, including taxes. I am seeking to only work with high quality printers that can provide my exact specifications, to give you the best cardstock and deck quality that I am able to. A beautiful deck means nothing if the cards fail in stock quality. This is another reason why I decided to self-publish. I wanted full oversight of the end result and quality control before I hand the deck to its new owner.
Thank you again and again. If you have any questions about us, please feel free to send us a message!
