The Ritual Tarot is a custom 78 card indie tarot deck created over the span of two years by multidisciplinary artist, Tiera May. Each individual card was constructed and designed exclusively using analog collage methods. The cards are largely informed and inspired by the Rider Waite Tarot and the Crowley Thoth Tarot.
The cards in this deck do not feature titles or numbers. Tiera felt that adding these elements would interfere with the integrity of the imagery. Her intention behind this decision is to encourage those who use the deck to develop their own meanings and form a more intimate and intuitive connection with the cards.
♻ Ritual Tarot is 100% Eco-Friendly : Tarot decks were printed by a 100% ecological company based in Italy that specialises in manufacturing custom playing cards. The printing facilities are entirely solar powered and they use only premium quality recyclable CE certified papers and food-grade inks from the best European suppliers.

SHUFFLING DISCLAIMER: In the guide booklet Tiera recommends some alternatives to riffle/bridge shuffling your Ritual Tarot deck. The card stock is quite thick, not easily bendable and the cards are significantly larger than standard tarot cards. PLEASE BE AWARE: If you choose to riffle shuffle your copy you may notice slight wear and tear to the card edges. To avoid visible signs of "breaking-in" your deck Tiera suggests a gentle overhand shuffle as an alternative shuffling method. The rougher you are with your cards, the more you will see signs of W&T. Because the cards were printed using only recycled materials, they are less durable than cards manufactured using plastics.
