Hi! I'm Sara Calvarese, and I've been an astrologer and tarot reader for a while now. It's been a dream of mine to create a progressive tarot deck with modern and inclusive imagery for some time. 

Sara Calvarese - Owner of The 8th House & Creator of The 8th House Tarot
Sara Calvarese - Owner of The 8th House & Creator of The 8th House Tarot

Recently, my business partner and I started the process of opening up our combo lifestyle and home goods store (Marble Moon Studio + The 8th House) which supports modern witches, social activists, and independent creators. The timing just felt right to create the deck. I don't consider myself and artist, but it's been really cool and different to immerse myself into a creative process and put something out into the world. 

I've been a collector of indie decks for several years (also, we source a ton of decks into the shop), and as an astrologer, I wanted to make a deck that reflected the astrological associations with each card since that's how I actually came to learn about tarot - through an astrological and elemental lens.  

The deck also includes a mini 24 page guidebook that features abbreviated modern card interpretations including astrological associations, numerology, and reversal meanings. I sincerely hope everyone enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it! Sneak Peaks below! I'll be updating this page periodically with new artwork, so stay tuned!

Risks and challenges

I have a Virgo ascendant...I've planned for basically everything in terms of cost and on time delivery. The only potential risks/challenges I foresee with this project would be that I may struggle for the exposure to meet my goal - so share, share, share!
