Tarot has always been a vehicle for storytelling, a way to see and understand human experience. The creative potential of tarot is as varied as the people who work with it. The Uncommon Tarot is a contemporary reimagining of the rich symbolism of the Rider Waite Smith tarot. Shaheen Miro’s artwork breathes fresh life into the traditional tarot imagery, weaving together a mélange of people, places, and settings where everyone is invited to be part of the story regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or race.
The Uncommon Tarot honors and empowers the wisdom of the tarot, the ancestors of our past, the avatars of the future. This is a global tarot deck, one that serves as a path for all people who have a hard time relating to the traditional symbolism of tarot. The Uncommon Tarot is for everyone, but mostly for seekers who wish to live an authentic life.
Theresa Reed provides commentary on the symbolism of the cards, beginning each with a question: What does this card ask of you? Where does this card lead you? Who are you in this card?
