The Light Seer's Tarot Deck

ᴀ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴇʏ ᴏғ sʜᴀᴅᴏᴡs ᴀɴᴅ sᴜɴsʜɪɴᴇ

  • 78 Cards printed on luxuriously thick 400 GSM card stock
  • Cards will be finished with a silky soft matte lamination and have  gilded ( or coloured ?) edges. To be determined!
  • Beautifully designed box with a lid.
    { The box is not designed yet, but I promise it will be beautiful! ;) 
  • I'm really excited to share the very unique guidebook that is being co-created with this tarot community in order to bring multiple perspectives into the book! If you want to share your comments for the guidebook please join me on Instagram. There are many cards that still need entries, and I'd love to know what YOU see in the cards. (Likes, loves, and even dislikes... I can't think of a better way to create a tool for learning tarot than to include many different ways to see each image.)

ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ᴅᴇᴄᴋ
The Light Seer's Tarot brings us into a world of traditional and non-traditional archetypes, and invites us to explore its collection of human stories and seeds of wisdom, as we travel the sunshine-and-shadow-laden path of the Light Seer. 

I wanted to create a deck that not only explored the counterpoint found in traditional tarot archetypes, but that expressed updated ideas around dark and light. I wanted a deck that expressed - in visual form - the concept that the stars can't shine without the night

The deck is meant as a healing tool, as well as a trusted guide as we explore our own inner landscape. As the creator of the deck, I also knew that I wanted to add relatable, free-spirited characters who felt a lot like boho-sunshine and that nodded to contemporary spirituality.  Many of the artwork concepts are based in ideas of healing, energy work, and in working towards goals and dreams through mindset and belief. 

I believe that we can choose who we are becoming and where we are headed in life, and the symbolism speaks to that belief. Tarot can be profoundly healing when you find a deck that really speaks to your soul, and I hope the Light Seer's can become a trusted ally as you work your magic and shine your dreams out into the universe!  

ᴀʀᴛᴡᴏʀᴋ

I have been working in graphic arts for 15 years, and this deck is a culmination of all of my design skills, both manual and digital. Some of the cards are 100% digital, where other cards include hand worked elements. I haven't followed a set "process" for the cards, except to listen to my heart and to take some risks and chances on the artwork, so that the deck has a voice that is unique.

The Muse Tarot Deck

ᴀɴ ɪɴsᴘɪʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴇʏ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴄʀᴇᴀᴛᴏʀ sᴏᴜʟ

  • 79 Cards printed on luxuriously thick 400 GSM card stock 
  •  Cards will be finished with a silky soft matte lamination and have gilded or coloured edges, and packaged in a vertical box with a lid. 
  •  UNLOCKED!
    The Muse Tarot guidebook will be digitally created, and if we reach our stretch goals it will become an APP! I am dreaming of a super creative way to get your muse meanings over to you. This deck demands it. The messages from the muse come in the form of key words, journal prompts, main messages and.... P O E T R Y.

  • *EDIT*  Based on backer's desire for something that could be disconnected from all electronic devices, the text from the APP & digital guidebook will be complied into a simple 8.5 x 11" (letter-sized) PDF, that you will be able to print for all of your tech-free cartomancy needs ;)  

I know! Two decks at the same time is a little confusing for one kickstarter campaign. And launching two decks from my tiny studio could be downright overwhelming, which is why I am asking for your help to fund this campaign!

ᴀʙᴏᴜᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ᴅᴇᴄᴋ
This unexpected deck is named the Muse Tarot because this it showed up while I was working on the Light Seer's deck. Like smack-dab-in-the-middle-of-it. And the Muse had this booming idea for a new deck, and she demanded to be heard. She showed up like an inspiration party with a rock band of creative goddesses, each one wanting to be brought to life in a way that felt fun, inspiring and totally quirky. This deck is eclectic, and upbeat, as is the uniquely written guidebook that sprouts poetry and muse wisdom in very non-conventional ways. 

What does that mean for you?
A cool new tool to dive into that will be both inspiring and profound. And, if the stretch goal on this one is met, you'll be getting your digital guidebook in APP form, complete with AUDIO. YES MUSE! Let's do this! 

ᴛʜᴇ sᴜɪᴛs ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇ ᴍᴜsᴇ
The four suits have been swapped out so that they are much more descriptive of the muse energy behind each element: 

Fire / Wands becomes Inspiration
Water / Cups becomes Emotions
Air / Swords becomes Voices
Earth / Pentacles becomes MaterialsThe Muse Tarot guidebook will be written for the creator in mind, so that the Muse can help you to build the life you desire. The Muse also knows a thing or two about life, love and finding hapiness ;) and I know this deck will be an inspiring blend of motivation, creativity and giuidance.  

*Important Note for both decks:
The cards are still being created, and the designs shown in the campaign materials may change slightly before the finals are sent to the printer.

Risks and challenges

As with all things creative, sometimes the muse takes a little bit longer than we expect to show up and help us with our imagery!

One of the risks with the project is the timeline. I expect the deck to take about 3 months from the time we finish funding to be fully completed, I have worked with my printers in the past, and they are excellent. That said, sometimes there are bumps with production timelines, shipping timelines, customs entry and delayed sea cargo delivery.

Ideally, the decks will arrive here in December and be shipped out then, Delivery timelines are for North American backers. Decks will take longer to arrive to addresses in Europe, Asia, Australia/ New Zealand. (Up to 2 months!)

I have an oracle product called The Sacred Creators Oracle that has given me experience to bring this project to life!

I am so excited to see these decks in my hands, and I have so much hope for them!

A risk / challenge that has been added to the project as a stretch goal is the The Muse Tarot APP development as part of the digital experience. I have never created an APP before. I have digital design experience as well as user-interface design experience, and I can contribute a lot to the visual design of the APP. I do not have the programming experience to fix / recreate items that are not done as expected by third-party programmers for app coding. This is new for me, but I am confident that we will create something beautiful.

Thank you so much for supporting this campaign!
