Come meet Joanna Powell Colbert, creator of the Gaian Tarot, and let her personally introduce you to this wonderful deck described by her publisher Llewellyn as:
Deeply spiritual, nature inspired, and undeniably beautiful—the Gaian Tarot offers a true connection to our Earth Mother. Classic tarot archetypes and suits have been wisely updated to reflect a lush, contemporary, and multicultural world steeped in Gaian myth and lore. Not only does this evocative deck put us in touch with Divine wisdom and spiritual teachings, but it also offers a vision of hope and healing for our planet.
