The Raven

The Raven is a limited edition booster card to join The Totem Tarot.

From time to time I will release limited edition cards to join The Totem Tarot. Some of these cards will be new totems, some will be additional versions of original totems. They are intended to be unique and collectable and will be released in extremely limited editions. They will be sized and formatted to fit in with The Totem Tarot, and will be presented in a paper folder with information about the totem.

The Raven is the first The Totem Tarot booster card and is released in celebration of the release of The Totem Tarot. The Raven is available in an edition of only 22 cards (which is a reflection of the number of cards in the basic totem tarot deck).

The Raven is an explorer of the unknown, whether that unknown is physical, mental or spiritual. The Raven is a totem of knowledge and in many myths brings knowledge and gifts to his friends. The Raven is also a symbol of change (and sometimes death), although since The Raven is also a trickster, highly intelligent and able to best his friends and enemies, perhaps the myth that The Raven can predict death is all just a prank.

The Raven is available in my etsy shop.


The Totem Tarot is ready!

Over the past few years, I’ve been very interested in animal totems and in watching and listening to what they have to tell us. Many cultures believe that an animal spirit guides us.

We can be guided by different animals at different times in our lives.

We can be guided by different animals at the same time, as well.

This series is about listening to the animal spirits around us and learning what they have to teach us.  This series is now available as an art deck of cards, The Totem Tarot.

Based loosely on a traditional tarot deck, The Totem Tarot is made up of 22 cards. Limited edition booster cards will be released over time, and custom cards may also be available. Each card has an inherent meaning, but it’s also up to the individual using the cards to listen to their intuition to determine what the card is attempting to convey to them. Like animal spirits appearing when they want to guide us, The Totem Tarot can also be used as a guiding force.

Draw a card and meditate upon it to bring a totem’s characteristics into your life. 

Use a card as a reminder or visual prompt to reinforce your mission.

Or, of course, you may ask the totems a question, shuffle the deck, and choose a card at random, taking your answer from the totem that is presenting itself to you.

The Totem Tarot deck is made up of 22 cards. Cards are 2.75 x 3.75 inches, color printed, backed with decorative paper by hand, and laminated. The deck is presented in a paper case. The Totem Tarot is accompanied by a 24 page booklet explaining the individual totems and showing how the cards related to the traditional tarot.

The Totem Tarot is $55, available on etsy. Individual prints of each totem are also available, and some original artworks are available for purchase too. Booster cards will be available over time. If you’re interested in a custom totem, email me.

(Just so you know, The Totem Tarot contains: The Coyote, The Zebra, The Tiger, The Sea Otter, The Horse, The Wolf, The Crow, The Salmon, The Seal, The Turtle, The Bee, The Lion, The Peacock, The Heron, The Butterfly, The Painted Dog, The Hawk, The Owl, The Eagle, The Kingfisher and The Swallow.

Limited edition booster cards will also be released over time, and custom cards may also be available. Each card has an inherent meaning, but it’s also up to the individual using the cards to listen to their intuition to determine what the card is attempting to convey to them. Like animal spirits appearing when they want to guide us, the totem tarot can also be used as a guiding force.
