White Sage Tarot

Dublin Core


White Sage Tarot


New age spirituality


78 cards + 2 chakra/reference cards + a 63-page LWB in a 2-part, lidded tin box.

The cards are pocket sized, measuring 5.1 cm wide x 9.6 cm wide.

The card stock is flexible, with a smooth, slippery semi-matte finish. Indeed, the cards are so slippery that shuffling becomes a challenge.

The card backs feature a reversible, basket-weave design, with copyright information printed in the upper left and bottom right corners.

Strength is 8 and Justice is 11. The Fool is numbered 0. No humans appear in any of the majors (or in any of the cards, for that matter). Many, though not all, of the majors feature animals.

Suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King. Instead of human courts, each suit features a different animal: raptors (birds of prey) in the court of Wands, otters in the court of Cups, big cats in the court of Swords, and elephants in the court of Pentacles.

The minor arcana are illustrated, but not fully scenic. Some of the minors hint at RWS-style meanings, but others are little more than arrangements of suit symbols.

To me, the White Sage tarot falls into the general category of "clean and contemporary" decks marketed to people who know nothing about tarot, but want something soft and pretty and Instagrammable.

I can't see any way to read with this deck other than consulting the LWB, or applying memorized, rote meanings; there's not enough "there" in the images to spark intuition.
