10 New and Upcoming Indie Tarot Decks to Keep an Eye Out For
Here are a couple of decks I’m excited about, especially those going on my Tarot of the QTPOC list. I’ve included the order/pre-order link to all of them because I’m your friendly neighborhood tarot deck enabler!
All descriptions and images below were created and owned by the deck’s creators.
The 8th House Tarot

The Cosmic Cycles Tarot
A modernized tarot deck that is relatable to today's society. Featuring diverse characters and beautiful artwork.
“I wanted something that was unique and trendy, so that people who are reluctant to read on their own would be inspired to start their Tarot journey. The card ideas I had were direct to the point and easy to understand, so that the newbies can easily learn what the cards meant. Personally, I want to share a tool that has helped me go through the ups and downs of life.”
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. The Herbcrafter’s Tarot tells the story of the maker as much as the plants.
The Marble Moon Tarot
“I knew some things would be important to me to include - a fantastical element, modern fashion, diversity, breaking out of the traditional gender binary, and whimsy.” - Sam West, creator

This Might Hurt Tarot
This Might Hurt Tarot is a modern deck in the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition. Keeping time-honored symbolism and imagery, but losing the medieval context, this deck is designed to be both easy to read and highly relatable. Clothing and scenery are modernized, diversity is embraced, and queerness is lovingly acknowledged.

The Spacious Tarot
The Spacious Tarot is a tarot deck, but to simply call it a tarot deck does not fully describe the magic you'll find here. This deck invites you into an energetic realm, beckoning you to enter and explore. Immerse yourself in the scenes. Sink into the colors and textures. It doesn't matter if you are new to tarot or a seasoned reader - these cards will evoke your intuition!
The Weird Cat Tarot
A colorful tarot deck inspired by… Cats!
Earth Child Tarot
Earth Child Tarot is gentle, magical and awkward deck, which leaves space for the user to imbue their own understanding and meanings to the cards. This divination deck imbues light thought its artfully crafted images. The deck will serve all your ritual needs though it’s internal knowledge of seasonality and astrology.
Hope some of these caught your eye!
