This deck is designed to integrate the healing properties of traditional herbs with the symbolism of tarot. On each card, a different herb is pictured and identified.
At first glance, I didn’t realize this deck actually included a few brown people but it does! The representation isn’t exactly high but I’m filing it under multicultural, anyway, because we know that our knowledge of herbs comes from Black & Indigenous folks from all over the planet. Be sure to also check out the correspondence guide, available in paperback and Kindle..

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.
