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