A 78-Card Deck & Guidebook of Fairies, Mermaids & Magic Cards
From the creator of the Crow Tarot, a richly illustrated 78-card tarot deck and guidebook set in a magical realm where dark and light collide, where mermaids swim, and where the elements rule at a fairy court.
Hidden deep in the forest where shadows mingle with sunlight, lies the wild and mystical land of Förhäxa. The heroes and villains, spirits and sprites, mermaids and magic that make up this deck are inspired by the traditional Rider Waite Smith tarot, Norse folktales, fairy lore, and the elemental powers of nature. The Swedish word förhäxa means "to enchant, cast a spell, or bedevil," and this deck does just that, drawing in readers with its earthy, richly detailed illustrations on the cards and mystical messages in the guidebook.
Each suit in this tarot deck is represented by the foundational elements of Water, Air, Fire, and Earth—in place of Cups, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles—elevating our connection to nature. Instead of Kings in each suit, there are Elders, and instead of an Emperor, there is a Council of Monarchs—pushing to the side the patriarchal human structures that limit us, and centering community and wisdom passed down from ancestors.
