"It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the Autumn." B. C. Forbes

This vibrantly colored deck is designed to integrate the healing properties of traditional herbs with the esoteric symbolism of tarot. Herbal Tarot follows the general assignments of the Rider-Waite deck, but each card is assigned an individual medicinal herb based upon intuition, astrological and energetic values.  A different herb is pictured and identified on each card. 

The deck was drawn by artist Candice Cantin under the direction of herbalist Michael Tierra. According to the creators, "The Herbal Tarot is a tool for studying the psycho-physical energy of herbs. Herbs, when joined with the tarot, can provide a symbolic material manifestation to accompany a specific divination. This will encourage communication with the subconscious for which the tarot cards are especially powerful.”

The symmetric card backs feature sprigs of rosemary. The booklet gives both upright and reversed meanings.

Candis Cantin is an herbalist, a wholistic counselor, and a teacher of the herbal path. She has studied Ayurvedic, Chinese, European, and Native American traditions of herbal healing.

Michael Tierra is a certified acupuncturist, an herbalist, a naturopath, and a spiritual counselor. He has studied herbs in China, India, and with Native Americans. He is the author of The Way of the Herbs.

New to tarot? If you have never read tarot, DIRT's advice is to first start with your intuition and let the images speak to you and your subconscious. After you have allowed your subconscious to soak in the imagery, then proceed soaking up the wisdom that has been written. Tarot tells the story of life, which is ever unfolding, so let the cards evolve as we do and not hold them to strict mental ideas.
