I am over-the-moon thrilled to let you know about the new tarot deck I’ve been working on for the past three years, the Herbcrafter’s Tarot!
I created it with my friend Latisha Guthrie of Herbmother.com. I know tarot, Latisha knows herbs. We collaborated on the content, I did the artwork, and Latisha wrote the book. Together we’ve created something unique and beautiful! The deck and book set will be released by US Games in the Spring of 2019.
Here’s what it’s all about:
The Herbcrafter’s Tarot celebrates the handicrafts, tools, and time-honored folk skills related to herbs, trees, flowers, and other plants that share their gifts with us. The deck and book set explores the relationship between herbs and how people use them for medicine, creativity, delight, tools, ritual, and spiritual guidance.
It is not solely about the properties of specific plants, but our human connection to them. We focus on the craft instead of the clinical and the art instead of the astrological.
The Herbcrafter’s Tarot tells the story of the maker as much as the plants.
It’s an engaging introduction to herbalism and plant spirit magic, and can be used as a profound divinatory tool. The set includes a 78-card deck and a 124-page book full of herbal inspiration and ideas for crafting with the cards.
“The magic is in the making.”
From now until the deck’s release in the spring, Latisha and I will be sharing sneak peeks at some of the cards on Instagram and Facebook. I’ll also be sharing in my e-letter, Messages from Sea & Cedar.

I hope you are as delighted by this good news as I am, and I wish you a most joyful Solstice!
